Elswyr 2019. Which platform for a casual couple?

blaineswing_ESO
Which platform would you recommend for a casual couple that will not be running anything hardcore. Just questing, and maybe mid tier dungeons and raids?

Ps. We both have our own consoles and PCs.

    I do love playing with the gamepad, but its gotta be on PC just because I can customize the controls to my liking and have addons to help with my UI to be more informative with what's going on.

    Played console from day of release, switched to PC in November 2018, Instantly a better overall experience, the add ons just add to that experience.

    Add-ons, make PC the only option...
    FPS on a decent PC takes console off the table, if lack of Add-ons does not (for you)

    The most important factor is which one you most enjoy playing on. And what kind of a gaming experience you want to have.

    For me, console gaming is a more laid back, on the sofa in front of the TV experience, while the PC is an office chair, a desk and a more ‘serious’ gaming space. I’m not sure which of those feels best for you.

    The console interface is lovely and using a controller is great, but you can do both with the PC too. Also the built in comms that consoles have is great, but again discord does the same thing for PCs

    For me the lack of add-ons on consoles is a massive disadvantage. It makes some basic elements of the game annoying. It was less of an issue when you went through the game zone by zone in progression, but now the whole world is your stage, not knowing where anything is can be a pain.

    Whichever you choose, ESO is a great game to play with friends. Have fun

    As a day one ps4 player, and as much as I love my console, I'd still have to say PC.

    It has nothing to do with performance...let's be honest here. Despite the misconceptions, ESO runs pretty bad no matter what platform you play on. My friend was bragging about how much better the game ran on his top of the line PC...and he had crashes and lag just like I had on console. Even when he tried turning down the graphic settings. The slide show did look prettier though. (And this isn't really worth arguing about. So, please save it. No need to turn this into a chest thumping console vs. PC war, and even as a console player saying PC. Though, probably inevitable due to it having console or PC in the title)

    But even for what little you want to do, just having a mini map add on, and things like the skyshard and lore book add ons will save you a ton of headaches.

    Consoles used to be so awesome, then they added all the shortcomings of pcs, while pcs added the conveniences of consoles. Other than the nintendo switch, which obviously doesn't have eso, the current generation consoles are just bad, restricted pcs.


    ESO has become the answer to the question, "What if Mr. Burns owned my favorite arcade?"

    PC. Used to play Xbox one and the PC is way better. I play with my controller still, but add ons make it much easier.

    To be casual player is irrelevant of platform. PC is better platform overall for everything.
    And the significant majority are casual players in at least in PC EU. Only a tiny fraction 1-2% are not.

    I'm afraid on these forums you will get a biased awnser to this question. A few questions to ask yourself, do you already own a system to play on for both people? Well this is a good game I'm not sure it's worth spending thousands for a couple new systems just so you can play on a specific platform. Do you know anyone that already plays on a specific platform? Having some people to play together with is what often times keeps people playing and can make the game more enjoyable.
    I'm sure whatever platform you choose you can get some enjoyment from this game.

    ^This. Don't go through Steam, they frequently have log in issues. Buy from the site here and use ZOSs launcher, don't use Steam.

    PC has more players and also you can use addons, it's the better platform IMO.
