I'm moving to Europe soon and I wanted to know if I bought a laptop charger from there if I can use it on my laptop from the US? Also can I use my gaming consoles if I get European adapters? I know I can just use a converter but I've had things burn out and I'd rather not risk the safety of my laptop.

I would contact the manufacturer of your system. If for no other reason than to see if it violates the warranty if you have one.
Having said that, I don't know the answer because I have no idea what kind of chargers are used. But if I were to guess, I'd say that it would not be compatible. It's not about the plug (which there are many different ones in Europe). You can get an adapter for that. The problem is the voltage. Unless the charger has a switch to change from 110 to 220 then I would not trust it unless you find out for sure otherwise.
The game console would be the same. There may be converters that will work, but I would assume they won't until you find out otherwise.1
