Many PC players have been using controllers for a long time; they also play very different types of games on this platform not only it offers the choice of I/Os but because it allows for high-end hardware whereas consoles are behind most of the time. This has a price, of course

Mouse and being able to read comfortably is important for the games that usually interest us on this website (classic or isometric RPGs or whatever you prefer to call them, and RPGs with some level of depth), I would agree, but for the majority of games, I believe PCs and consoles are more a question of preference, opportunity or money.
