    What do you prefer? And why?!

    I honestly like both, I am an owner of a Gaming PC and and Xbox 360 and I enjoy gaming on both, what about you?

    I own a Wii Console besides my computer. I like the last one better, I enjoy gaming on both, but for more interaction and to play with others, Wii is better :). Too much fun and laughter, which you cannot get from PC. And you play with them, not virtually. Apart from that , PC is superior.

    I prefer gaming on the PC, something about the controller that i just can't get into (I also own the 360 and PS3).

    While I like both PC and Console gaming, I rarely play on my PS3. Spend most of my playing time on the PC and usually only play games I have on STEAM so I can co-op with friends.

    Counter Strike Source was the main game that got me into PC gaming and I continued to play CS:S for around 6 years. Now that Valve has decided to kill a majority of the 3rd party mods with the big update I am no longer interested in playing it. To be honest there really isn't another game out there that compares to what CS:S once was. :(

    I once had a PS2, but It was old days when I found out about cool PC games like Assasin Creed, Prototype, etc... so, now I like PC games better than console games.

    Consoles are fun, especially when other people are around, but it's PC for me due to the sheer power and huge library of games.

    I have an Xbox 360 on which i play Halo Reach almost exclusively. It's extremely fun every time i play! Theres just something about rocket launchers and vehicles flying all over the place that just makes it epic. That being said... i still prefer PC gaming. I find the console fun, but not addictive, and find it more difficult / annoying when trying to play with friends.

    On PC however, all you need is Skype, MSN or something similar, and you and your friends can all launch the same game. Thats the deciding factor for me.

    I enjoy playing both. I use my PC for mmo's and my consoles to play against my family :)

    I recently started playing on a console and I admit its very very hard to play FPS. That said there are other games which are very entertaining too. I specifically went for a console because it is compact and does not need upgrading every few months like a PC.

    Though the game graphics on PC are far much better.

    I sold my PS3 last year. When I was younger it used to be great fun, playing online whilst talking to friends. Now however our lives have moved on and I just don't see the point in sitting playing games.

    Games only contain what the developers put in them whereas the internet probably contains nearly all the human knowledge there is.

    I can't stand playing games on a PC. consoles are designed for games, use them for that.

    but hey, I also think that online play is dreadful. other people ruin games

    I'm primarily a PC gamer. PC gaming if my preferred choice because of the ability to crank up resolution, AA, AF, quality. Also most FPS games are better to play on PC because of the keyboard and mouse. The only reason I would have to play on consoles is if there was an exclusive game I wanted to play. For multi-platform games I prefer PC unless the game happens to run better on a console such as is the case with some poor console to PC ports.

    I like PC more because the grafic is absolutly more exciting! I think consoles will kill the PC videogames and that's sad.

    What's sad is places like Walmart, Gamestop and other retailers have a pathetic selection of PC games compared to the consoles. PC gaming just doesn't get as much exposure even though PC gaming is clearly superior.

    Hard one because I love my xBox because of the Kinect and the Live options.

    It depends though I would have to say PC because I spend the majority of my time on that over the console.

    I prefer PC for games such as Portal as they give you more freedom and you can move around more smoothly, however I prefer console for FPS games such as Call of Duty.

    Well i own all platforms: Wii, PS3, Xbox360 and PC but i find the majority of my time spent on the PC, the only time I'll ever play on my console is when i wish to play something which is exclusive to consoles or something that comes out on consoles a lot sooner than it would on PC.

    I would say that an Xbox 360 would be better than a PC, but PC beats all the other consoles imo

    Another thing I like about PC games is that I can multi-task, such as browsing the web or running another application or game while playing without leaving my chair. It's more convenient for me, and there is even overlay applications that allow you to do whatever else without ALT+TAB'ing out of the game.

    Some games I do play with a controller on PC, mostly third person games. I've always preferred to play Crysis with my Xbox 360 controller instead of a keyboard and mouse.

    I've got a PC and a Ps3.

    However, my Ps3 (Even though in-front of my face) has gathered dust. There's some interesting titles for the consoles, however, once you immerse yourself in the PC universe, you just simply can't go back. Mainly because if a game irritated you, you can't simply go and edit an 'ini' file or google search and have your way with it!

    Yay for customization, modding and tweaking! :D

    That's why PC gaming is so awesome.

    I prefer PC as I can do anything I want with it. Like chatting with your friends , surfing the internet. I'm now looking forward for Xbox360 but I don't have the cash to buy the console. Well for what I can see , xbox360 are also fun and addictive.

    I just don't see the point of investing in a console when a high-end PC can do as much as any + double up as my working machine.

    Well if I should like Xbox 360, it's only because it's the platform having the exclusivity of the Alan Wake Game.
    Wait a second... I should hate for that !

    I really wish Alan Wake and Gears of War 2 and Gears of War 3 would be released for PC. :(
