The PC has fewer games overall but they are generally long-lasting. CS has been out for god knows how long and it's still one of the most played PC games. RTSs like C&C3 and M2TW only work on well on PCs which is another bonus. With consoles only a select few remain popular for so long - Halo, GoW, R6V, and probably CoD4 (note how those are shooters and not driving games) - because most games are singleplayer with a half-assed attempt at a multiplayer stuck on to fill up the disk.
Although I think people are sick of hackers on PC games as well as having to upgrade their PC every few months and comply with Microsoft's ever-tightening requirements to play newer games on Windows, which I think are the main reasons why online console gaming has become more popular.
