So I'm kind of curious of what kind of gaming platform you guys mainly play on... For me, it's mainly my PC (PC master race :P ) and my PS Vita.

So do you prefer playing on PC or consoles? For me, it depends, since I like handheld consoles since they're portable (I've never had a non-handheld console so I can't really say about them), but I like playing on the PC since the game library is the largest on PC obviously.

I also prefer PC, partly because of the sheer number of available games and also because it's easier to customize on PC, using for example mods, settings or changing key bindings. PC also tends to have higher quality when it comes to graphics, though not always.

I do like other consoles as well, especially Xbox 360 and PS2. As you mentioned, it's nice that they're portable.

PC since I usually play WoW :) although I'm vaguely excited for some of the oculus stuff coming out. But there was a new kingdom hearts 3 trailer. And I will probably insta-buy whatever platform it's for.

I mostly play PC games. Skyrim is one of my favorites and I like to go crazy with mods. This reminds me that the Steam Sale has started! I have also played WoW a lot in the past but not recently. I might pick it back up when the next expansion comes out. (Draenor server, btw!)

I have a 3DS that I play on a bit as well. Mostly Pokemon and role playing games.

My kindle, lol. But it used to be PS3 (2) (1) (P) before college took over my life again. I used to play decades long rpgs (Xenosaga!!!! I will replay you again one day, I swear!!!!) and various other stuff, like tomb raider, assasins creed, Katamari, etc. but now, if I have the chance, I play those mystery games on kindle. How low I've sunken... (but they're actually really fun, lol)

PC master race here. The variety of games available (indie to AAA) is unmatched and keyboard/mouse is just much more versatile than controllers

Hmm,
I prefer PC, mostly because of Steam (easy to get cheap games).
But, I also like WiiU (I like the controls).

I was always too poor to have a console when I was younger, so I have always played simple PC games. Recently, I got a new laptop, so I am learning the wonderful world of Steam sales.

However, I found out that I cannot play 3D games because it gives me headaches and it gives my siblings motion sickness. So far, I really enjoy side-scrolling and top-down games like Guacamelee and Zelda, respectively.

Oh, and I have a DS Lite, but I only have about five games for that system.

I was about to write something similar XD.
I can't get myself away from Xenoblade Chronicles X, since I turned it on just to test..... And Since I bought my Wii U only last year, specially so I can play previous part of that title, I just finished the previous one not long ago ;P.
So for almost a year, my mostly played games are those 2 XD.
Well, I did play shorter ones when I needed a break from XC, so I finished Trails in the Sky on PC during the break and Recettear (tho only 1 playthrough), and since I couldn't take Wii U to the sea, I finished Ragnarok Tactics there XD.

I prefer playing on consoles, but.... most of new consoles don't make me want to buy them, I still have to buy PS3 for all the games I bought, and that might be my last Sony purchase ;/.
I mostly liked consoles because it was "put CD in and play", but newest consoles need instalations, patches and now often internet to play.....
In Xenoblade X, I don't mind the internet feature, but that's 'cos its an add-on, when I loose connection, I can still play, which isn't true for many new PC games ;(.
I don't understand their thinking that to play alone you need net, but oh well, I have so many jRPGs on shelf, for PS2/PSP/PS3 to play (tho I miss the console for last ones), that I won't be bored ;P
I plan to buy 3DS too, because having option to play anywhere is nice, I really like my PSP XD. I didn't buy Vita, mostly because it wont play my PSP games, so it would be useless, until they release alot more of jRPGs on it ;P.

I mainly game on PC and Playstation. The former has a variety of games and easier to manage while the latter tends to get all the good JRPGs.

I usually play with my PS Vita. It's easier since it's portable. I don't have to wait until no one's using the TV before I can play.

I also have a PS4.

Not so much into PC gaming.

I'm oldschool, my favorite platform was probably the gamecube, I don't game much anymore like I use to, but I mostly do PC now since that is the easiest for me.

I am usually on the go, so my vita at the moment. I also have a wonderful gaming desktop that I built, and spent far too much for what I have done with it. I often joke to my friends it has become the glorified sesame street viewing machine. :)
It has three solid state drives 1Tb , blu ray burner, 16Gb of ram, and it was new at the time 780gtx EVGA graphics card. Asus motherboard and i7 processor, aluminum full size tower case.... and it goes on, but hey maybe some day......Once upon a time, it was my preferred gaming unit.

I really like playing on the PC, but sadly my PC is out of date and I'm crushed because I'm dying to play Fallout 4. I just don't have the money to upgrade my system atm X'D

I also have a 3DS, which is quietly collecting dust in a corner until real life stops being annoying. I kinda want to replay Fire Emblem Awakening because it's such a wonderful RPG. X'D

I prefer to play on the Xbox... only because I'm used to the controls, lol. I also like playing on my phone because I can play the games anywhere. XD

I would have to say I prefer playing on my PC. PS3 is good too but having a controller is mostly ideal for action games.

To be honest, I've only very recently gotten into gaming at all. And mostly I've only begun with visual novels and otome games. So at the moment, I've just been playing on the vita! So far I am enjoying it though.
