    i thought switching to consoles such as Xbox360 but i abandoned later. Plug and play is not my type

    Not really.

    My last PC had some personality issues and used to BSOD when playing games on it, so I kind of got out of the habit. My new PC is Win7 and it has some problems with my older games, so I don't bother with that either.

    I've got a PS3 and prefer console games for the convenience.
    I know that sometimes they dumb down games, so the only thing I'm really playing on the PC these days is Civilisation. And I'm trying to get into Sims3, but have yet to see the point of telling someone to go to the toilet and then go to bed. I've got a son, I get to do it for real.

    As per JonnyMX really, I used to play pc games alot, then children came along and I came a little fed up with needing to upgrade my pc every year. So I bought a Wii and a 360 (that was about 2 years ago), I dont get alot of time to play games and the most annoying thing about the transition from pc to console is getting used to not having pixel control over the cross hairs. I play FPS mostly I can quickly pick them up and play them for 10 minutes without having to worry about complicated game play requiring hours of attention.

    I am a console gamer as well... Used to play PC games back in Half life/counter-strike days but like others already mentioned, I don't feel the need to constantly upgrade my PC every 6 months to a year in order to play some of the newer games. Xbox 360/PS3 is what I use and it works for me. Actually the only PC games I play online and that's like once or twice a week is WoW and Starcraft 2.

    Does playing BubbleBobble in 1987 count ? :blink

    No since turning 18 I've tried to be more into productive use of my computer time, I pick up a game normally for about a month once every 4 years on average.

    Agreed as you get older the sort of 'immersive hours of play' titles become less practical, children don't have jobs to go to after all...

    I was into counter strike big time when i was younger, and then got into IOS - international online soccer - which was a football mod for HL, and was awesome :D that was from the ages of about 12 thru to 19 - then work took priority really.

    Saying that i still fire up Battlefield 2 on the PC from time to time, love that game

    use both, use PS3 for Fifa and 1st person type games, and PC for strategy games such as football manager and total war/civilisation(still a quality game)

    Depends on the games. For FPS and MMO's like World of warcraft it's PC all the way. For console is Action/Fighting and sports games.

    Yes is the straightforward answer. There's usually a powerful enough box around somewhere to through a card into. Plus I can't be doing with joypads for a lot of games.

    Hey

    Use to be addicted to counter strike, started playing when version 1.3 first was released (about 2004 i think) and played counter strike source until late 2008. I love online gaming.

    Then i moved to the UK and didn't have a PC, got and Xbox but have never really got back into gaming on a large scale. a little bit of fifa is all i play now. Probably won't get back into PC gaming (it can be very addictive)

    I've been playing computer games for almost 30 years, and I've been gaming on the PC for probably 18 of that. Before the PC, I gamed on my Amiga 500, and before that, my Commodore 64/128.

    Of course it's a game. The same as Monopoly is a game.
    Still playing FM09 myself. I'd be playing it right now if I wasn't at work.

    During your time on CertForums you've asked this question 3 times already.

    Not much has changed since.
