How would you reduce Internet/Videogame Costs as a NEET?

I wanna have fun while still being a NEET.

I guess you can only have a gaming PC because Console requires Online which is like 60$ a year which is a lot of money for a NEET so

Gaming PC for a solution.

What about solutions towards browsing, saving money, making money online, saving money on videogames?

Get a gaming PC, and either wait for sales on Steam or piratemaxx and download for free from torrent sites

Gaming is pretty fucking dead, So that makes it easy.
Ikr, actual good games like dying light, Metro Exodus went to become underrated, but shitty small indie games like among us, phasmophobia go on to be overrated AF, just more reasons why i hate normscums and foids

im poor, i cant afford a decent pc; i'd buy according to my budget but the specs would be so shit that it'd be better to buy a console; i dont have any streams of income currently.

I think console and PC have similar costs over the course of a generation (excluding piracy - if you go down that route then PC is obviously cheaper). The initial barrier of entry is much lower on console, and games & services are a bit cheaper on PC.
PC pros:
-games that are released cheaper than on console in a lot of countries (for example, where I live AAA games cost 60 euro on PC at launch, whereas on the new consoles they cost 80)
-games that go on sale more often (and when they do they hit lower prices than on console sales)
-key resellers
-no paid online
Console pros:
-hardware significantly cheaper (you can get a next-gen system for as low as 299, whereas a gaming PC capable of running next-gen games would cost much, much more - and that is in a normal situation; right now the prices of PC components are a mess)
-used games market for the systems that support physical media

It really depends on how much you want to spend initially. Spend a lot less initially and a bit more on games and services, or spend a lot more initially and a bit less on games and services. Overall I wouldn't really call one "cheaper" than the other, they're just for people with different priorities.

I think PC is better because u can use it while playing video games and use it for other purposes. You can also make a living out of it.

Pirate all singleplayer games and if you wanna play a multiplayer game spend your money on that.I don't like using reddit but there are 2 decent subs:
r/gamedeals
r/freegamefindings
They find the best deals if you wanna buy games and freegamefindings finds every free game.And epic is killing it with giveaways theese days.
