LOL you didnt even vote in your own poll

Anyways I'm all fpr pc gaming, dont really like consoles much anymore. With pcs I find that you have better control over your control config, higher res, better textures, MODs for games add alot to games also, plus the fact that I play FPS the most, they are better played on the PC IMO.

I went for console, simply because theres more than one console out there.. there is simply no comparison to pick up and play games like virtua tennis, full length rpg's like shenmue. They lack eye candy and truley good fps' and MMORPG's but that doesnt sway me.

The PC is the far better entertainment device though, no doubt about it

Although I prefer and thoroughly enjoy pc gaming, consoles are the utimate gaming platform because its closed box technology built just for that, gaming.

I won't answer that question because I own and game on both platforms. Each one has games I enjoy playing very much. They both have their strengths and weaknesses.

PC. I have tried buying all the consoles, but I find myself coming back to PC again and again, while the systems just collect dust.

Hmm, 50/50 so far...well we're an indecisive group

I went for Console, since it's a bit more affordable and it's nice to be able to pop in a game and just play it. Though PCs have a very wide variety of games, and Online PC is the best (though Xbox Live is fairly nice). Oh, and I think that 2 MMORPGs on Consoles are coming out later this year (FFXI and True Fantasy Online)

It really comes down to the games you like, and on this, we are all different.

I started out on the Atari, then Commadore64. The first real pc games I played were, Golf, Test Drive, Lesuier Suit Larry, 3D Wolfie, Captain Keen and some others. At the same time played the big N's first console. Later the SNES, I used to love Mario games then it was the MegaDriveII loved MK 1&2. Got my first PC about 5years ago, and since then havent really liked consoles, although I did play Quake2 on the Saturn and some other games, on the Dreamcast and XBox, I much prefer the pc for gaming.

Dear god man, what interdimentional portal did you go through? Heh, I think your thinking of Quake 1, Saturn was dead by the time Quake 2 was out (I think...). Oh, has anyone played that "unofficial" quake 1 port on Dreamcast? Quite a nice conversion considering it was done by a few people who did it...well...for the fun of it. Now if only the netcode worked...
