Console gamers will often say things along the lines of “Console has better exclusives”, “Console has more exclusives”, or both. If you don’t look carefully enough, these seem like good arguments, you won’t be playing Uncharted 4 on PC, you won’t be play The Last Of Us 2, no Horizon Zero Dawn, etc. But, after a bit of simple math, you’ll find this argument really isn’t all that great.
There are a whopping 16,305 Windows games on Steam currently. Let’s say 65% of those are exclusive (It’s probably more, but we’re just doing some conservative estimates). This means there’s 10,598 exclusive games on Steam, and this is a low estimate. Let’s be very conservative, and say just 2% of these games are good. This gives us 212 good games on just Steam. That’s more than PS4’s and Xbox One’s total exclusives combined. And this is just 1.3% of the total games on Steam. Let that sink in for a moment.
In conclusion, the exclusives argument (From the console side, at least) really isn’t a valid one. The amount of good PC exclusives using very conservative estimates outnumbers the total amount of exclusives on both current consoles.
