    I have a donated X-Box (original) and a donated PS2 hooked up to the TV currently. Though there seem to be more PS2 titles out there (or at least readily available in the secondary markets) I like the 'feel' of the X-Box better.

    PC naturally, mine plays better than a PS3 or XBOX360 (come on! just check the resolution on them :) )

    My main desktop PC is still only a P4 2.8ghz with a 512mb video card! Because I am only an infrequent game player it comes out much cheaper in the end for me to play on the X-Box and PS2 rather than trying to keep my PC specs up to speed (figuratively & literally) that the current generation of games play.

    Although I may break down and pick up SimCity 4 for the PC since it isn't available on the consoles. :D

    i have to say it is the PC for me. it is the platform that all the other companies are trying to kill off with their 'made for xbox' games. i dont knock the other platforms. i do actually play on the PS2 quite often but not to the extent that i do on the pc.

    I'm still getting by with a PS2 for game playing and an X-Box for DVD watching & some games but mostly it's the PS2.

    I am rolling with an Nintendo, N64, and handheld GBC that I am trying to midify into a steampunk game boy. Let us pray that I don't screw this up :D.

    Use to be a PC guy back in the day but when the good games started drying up I switched over to my 360 and have been a happy camper ever since.

    I use my PS3. But I like to play FPS on my PC. Am I the only one thinking that computers are the best gaming platform for FPS games?

    For me, yeah, I would have to agree. I just can't get the same level of movement control out of a console controller that I do with a keyboard.

    My game console is a Commodore 64 I do have a number of games for it but, I am not what is known as a gamer, I do like to play chess from time to time, but on a board.

    Oh, by the way I workd for Commodore Business Machines CBM back in 1977.

    [Edit]

    I like classic arcade games.
