In my experience, if your PC can run games better than a PS4 then go with PC. The big difference in terms of performance is that load times are way quicker on PC, which will end up really mattering if you get hooked and spend hundreds of hours playing.
There are plenty of people playing on PC, finding people to hunt with shouldn't be a problem.
Big difference between the two in terms of the game itself is that the updates have been staggered, so free updates like new monsters went to PC after the console versions. The new expansion that was just released, Iceborne, is only coming out in January for PC (not a big deal in your case as you will have plenty to do with the base game in the mean time).
Gears multiplayer being shotgun-centric was the thing that made it stand out from other multiplayer shooters. I'll still try it out but I am way less excited about it than before. Reminds me of Halo adding COD stuff in an attempt to appeal to that crowd, only to further push its own crowd away.
@redwing42: His matches so far fit HHH to a T (elaborate entrance, bringing in lots of 80s/90s legends, way too long), and his wife is almost certainly going to win the womens title at some point. Don't get your hopes up.
Call me crazy but I really get the feeling that this is all intentional.
This will sound dismissive, and I'm okay with people dismissing my opinion because of it:
Personally, I'm kind of at the point where I just don't give a shit about standup comedians after a certain age. They all seem stuck in the past, desperately trying to relive their glory days in a world that has moved on from them. Fifties-something standup comedians sound like they write for the NYT Opinion page, but the only difference is that they're allowed to say "fuck."
Yeah, stand up comedy is the coolest thing in the world when you are a teenager, especially if you are a jaded teenager. Then you grow up and realize stand up comedians are 90% sociopaths with extremely elevated opinions of themselves and the medium of comedy in general. Like, you tell jokes to drunk people, you're not the last bastion of free speech.
Chapelle's Show is quite possibly the funniest television series ever, but Chapelle himself has never really had a good stand up act. He pretty clearly needs creative people around him to focus and temper his ideas into something good.
