The works say a lot about the authors and the culture or perspective of each time and place. Look at horror movies throughout the decades to see what americans feared at any time. That is one reason re-imaginings are so popular they take a new perspective on an old familiar work.
PC gaming is cheaper. Online multiplayer is without monthly fees. There are truly free games with no subscription fees on Steam, GOG and Origin, maybe others. Build your own PC for the same price as a console with more power and greater functionality. Replace your own parts... yada yada yada . . .
I can't trust benchmarks unless they are actually doing what my device is for. I have a gaming pc so I trust a benchmark tool that actually renders scenes like the games I play. The benchmark records things that apply to my enjoyment of games like frames per second under various settings. If a tool just gives me a grade on some arbitrary scale then it is no use to me.
