FPS invented on the PC.
RTS invented on the PC.
RPG invented on the PC.
MMO invented on the PC.
User created mods invented on the PC.
Multiplayer online gaming invented on the PC.

Even if all those "facts" are correct (and they are debatable as I've seen other threads where people have argued these with you), who cares?

Just because one platform was the invention of something, does not imply that that platform is inherently superior to all others. If anything the opposite is likely true, as future designs can take advantage of mistakes made in the originals and improve upon them.

At best this is just a nostalgic "remember the good old days" argument which, I'll grant you, the PC has a number of, but that doesn't mean that the PC is somehow superior to all other platforms for video games, which is the rhetoric of your post.
