Oculus Quest vs Rift S for PC gaming

Hi,
I would like to buy a VR headset but i'm undecided between Quest and Rift S, i want to use the headset for PC games so i thought the Rift S was the best choice. I then learned that the Quest for the same price can also be used wirelessly and through Oculus Link you could play Rift games. Are all of the PC VR games playable on an Oculus Quest ? Can i also play Steam VR games ? What are the advantages of using a Rift S rather than a Quest for gaming?

    I have both, and for PC-VR I will typically use Rift S every time.
    I enjoy the Quest also for some Quest games, nice to have the mobility and able to play anywhere.

    Many PC-VR games can not be played on Quest without Link.

    Thank you very much,
    So if i play with the Quest via oculus link can i still play all pc vr games? why do you prefer the Rift for VR PC games ?

    I'm also looking to but Quest or Rift for my husband's birthday.  I'm leaning towards the Quest so he can use it anywhere, but the game he REALLY wants is the F-14 (he used to actually fly them), and I can't seem to find out if it works on the Quest except through the PC link.
