Is computer games better than a console?
Debate Rounds (4)
Ithink that computer games are way better than console games
Console games are far better than computer games. Many computer games require internet connection. Even if they were purchased from the store, often to reap the full benefits of the game, one has to connect to the internet for multiplayer modes, making it an inconvenience.
Also, over 95% of Americans own a television ( http://www.nytimes.com...;). About five percent fewer Americans own a computer (http://www.cnn.com...). Because console games often require a television and are more accessible, they are better than computer games. Console games also encompass handheld consoles, making them portable.
Thank you for your post, Now you said "Many computer games require internet connection" For the some of them I see you are talking about online gaming sites like www.nexon.com or going through websties, but there is so many games that you could play it on a computer! playing with offline! there are console Cds and there are also computer Cds as I pick them warcraft www.starcraft.com like those FAMOUS ones you can research on internet.
And, that is true that 95% of Americans own a television and I am still researching facts computer gaming is better
So Good luck :D
Most famous computer games are played best through connecting to the internet. Console games have merits that do not require connection to the internet. Both Warcraft and Starcraft are played best when connected to the web.
Because my opponent was not able to refute the accessibility argument, console games are to be considered best because they are most accessible, as 95% of Americans own a television.
First of all, I researchedand 81% of americans have internet acess, that couldn't follow the TV percent, but that is a lot too. From , and second, Console gamescost a lot, only the console's price average is 200 $$ to 420 $$ that is a lot of money to buy only a console isn't it? and If you buy a computer, it may cost more, but see, I could write this debate and go onlineand play games for free! I think that is the main point there.
My opponenet contradicts my evidence of 90% of Americans having internet access with even less of a percentage, making my accessibility argument that console games are that much more accessible. As for the costliness of a console, a person can purchase a used or refurbished console or an older model and not have that problem, and because gaming systems aren't as complex as computers, the fact that they've been refurbished or lightly used won't have as much effect as buying a used or refurbished computer. Because of this, computer games are not better than console games.
I don't know the meaninig of that " the Console is accessible." most americans have computers so they can play on online or bring your game Cd with you! with a X box or a PS3 orPS4 or a wii, americans doesn't have consoles as much as the people have the computer. And when you said you can buyan older model, there are certain games that don't work on older models. Such as new games that is released recently.
People don't have to purchase newer games. They can purchase older games. Most also have a television, which is a significant number more than a computer. Also, handheld consoles are a lot cheaper than computers, so those are better, too. Since my opponent provided evidence showing that more people have access to console games, I urge a vote in favor of the negative.
