I don't really know which one I prefer, maybe it's because I've always been too poor to afford actually good hardware and have gotten way more use out of my consoles in terms of gaming? That most of the series that I'm invested in are natively only available on consoles so I naturally lean towards them? I don't know but I guess I might have to go with consoles.
I mean, you can't really rely on emulating for everything, you know? There will probably never be a PS3 emulator, rumour has it that the 3DS/Wii U emulators are only coming along so well in such a short amount of time because the devs are using stolen code, graphical errors are commonplace and sometimes you run into games which are straight up unplayable. Plus, in my opinion, it feels nicer playing the games on the systems they were made for. Playing a SNES game with a knockoff PS2 controller with your browser in the background (or, say, full screen with whatever non-CRT filters installed) ruins the uh "immersion" for me. And I can't really imagine playing Crystal Chronicles or other local multiplayer console games on an emulator!! There are a load of console exclusives that will never ever come to PC too, sometimes they're games for consoles which can't be emulated yet. It's always really fun watching people cry about Bloodborne never leaving the PS4 :3c So while PC technically does have access to the highest amount of games around, it absolutely doesn't have access to all of them. Thanks to flashcarts/homebrew shenanigans you can still play a huge amount of your console games for free too (well, you have to pay for flashcarts but you know what I mean) so it's not like emulating is your only option....
And I seriously really don't care about modding at all It's great that the community can improve or drastically change a game themselves, but the idea that a game needs to be heavily modded in order to simply be enjoyable or even playable doesn't really sit well with me.
All that being said, handhelds (especially ones which are hacked and/or have access to flashcarts) are truly the best. You can get comfy wherever and play video games and not have to lug around a massive, heavy ``gaming" laptop that will likely either burn your thighs to a crisp or turn itself off in the middle of a game due to high temperatures or whatever else while the fans audibly run themselves to death. Tablets are nice too but it just isn't the same
