What do you mainly prefer as a gaming platform? give the reason and vote your platform. Please do NOT hate others opinions or start a flame war, I repeat DO NOT HATE OTHERS OPINIONS OR START A FLAME WAR
Or else ill have to ask a mod to lock this.

I choose PC because it is cheap & highly modifiable. It also always keeps up with the latest gen

Consoles since that what my friends and I mostly play on, but occasionally we would play something on PC.

PC, because why should I spend extra on consoles when I can play the game on the computer I have.

Yeah. But let's not talk about emulators. They aren't the most....legal or fair things.


Emulators are completely legal. It's back-ups of games that people distribute that aren't. If you make your own back-ups and own the game you're emulating, you can emulate your copy legally.

Another reason to love PC.

Edit: To be fair, mobile also. I forgot that there are mobile emulators out there so you can emulate on the go.

Are there places where you can actually buy emulator-compatible Roms etc? Cause I never had most games I tend to emulate, but I can't seem to find any place to buy them. And a lot of those games are either not for sale or require the medium you're emulating to buy it.

Consoles: Good computing power for a fair price. Excellent if you want to play high end games but can't afford a high end PC (which will usually number around the $1000 if you want to be able to play ALL games at 30-60 FPS)
PC: Max customization
Mobile: compact and mobile.

Do I need to say more?

Sounds about right. By tablets, do you mean like a Kindle or like an iPad? Because if you mean like a kindle that would be below consoles. Of you mean iPad, I would say it outperforms a mere smart phone in every way. Graphic quality, storage room, interface, etc.

InquePC because mods, more variety, emulators, they can do things consoles cannot, etc.


XD
Yeah. But let's not talk about emulators. They aren't the most....legal or fair things. But mods are completely fine and do tend to help make PC superior. I guess what it boils down to is customization. PC has many more options and potential. And can run any game that its competition can theoretically. Probably.

PC. I save a lot more money on PC than console. I save about $50-60 a month from not getting XLIVE or PS Plus, and a lot more from the frequent Steam sales. That is a BIG reason I stay with PC... plus graphics are better, and I love mods, mods are amazing and indie game... plus mouse and keyboard is just soooo much better.

Im not ONLY PC. I do play on consoles. Xbox for Halo, and Wii U for the Nintendo Games. Plus I play on Mobile a lot, but thats usually when I need to kill time.

I use solely PC at the moment, though not for the reason most people appear to (stereotypically). My reason is that I can easily use a PC for other things than just gaming, and would therefore prefer to invest money in a PC instead.
If I upgrade my current one to a beast PC (equivalent of changing from PS3 to PS4), I will not only be able to play games like Fallout 4, I will also be able to use it for 3D modelling, high-resolution photoshopping, editing videos and stuff like that. If I invested in a PS4 or XBOX1 instead, I'd have to still spend money on upgrading my pc to be able to do those other things.

Playstation 4 for all the triple A games.
For minecraft and ETS2 I use my simple laptop that does the job just fine

But yeah, I prefer to use my PS4 for games because you won't need to upgrade them at all times to run the latest games, as long as you have the latest console the games will be optimized for you.

And ofcourse the main reason: Gaming like a lazy ass laying on your couch or bed, not downloading games from steam but just putting a disc in, and I personally like to have the games "touchable", I think it's more impressive to have a desk with 10 discs on it than a steam library with a number "28" or anything like that.

I prefer PC, but I was a console gamer for years before my PC. I still have my Xbox 360 and occasionally play on it, but it heats up my room something fierce. Now that it's almost winter and getting cold, I might play it more since ot doubles as a space heater. Red Dead Redemption, here I come!

Not much on Xbox 360 any more. Most games I cared about that I had on console I now have on PC, which disperses MUCH less heat. In addition to Red Dead, I occasionally break out Eternal Sonata or Skyrim (even though I own it on PC),

I prefer PC because of Minecraft, although I do play Wii U and 3DS console. As for mobile, I actually play it most frequently of these. The reason most people don't is because of a limited game selection.

Problem is some people prefer android over apple. I can't see why.... But thar's a whole nother topic.

At least as far as gaming goes, unless you want to download illegal roms and emulators, IOS has more options to such a degree that you will never be tired of them. Even so, PC still has way more options than even that. Realistically, other than simple games, mobile does not have much to offer.

Thankfully the big games it does have to offer are actually my favorite franchises. Final Fantasy I-VII and Record Keeper, Megaman X, Many sonic games, street fighter with bluetooth, and of course Minecraft. A dumbed down version, but now with the nether and infinite worlds it has become quite entertaining. Especially since apps enable servers, commands, and even mods now.

I would say PS3 because I feel it is more fair to play vs other players on console because the the material does not differ much between players.
