How do you like to game? I was wondering which of the following you use the most for gaming. I use almost all of them myself at one point or another, but which do you use the most.

I have an Xbox 360 (just got the Kinect receiver as well) and a Wii, but I rarely turn the Wii on. I used to play all my games on the PC, but only play Sims 3 on that these days.

I just have one of those faces. People come up to me and say, "What's wrong?" Nothing. "Well, it takes more energy to frown than it does to smile." Yeah, you know it takes more energy to point that out than it does to leave me alone? -Bill Hicks

I'm the same with the Wii. I have a PS3, PC set up for gaming and a Wii and the Wii is hardly ever used. It doesn't seem as reliable as other consoles. I have had some issues with it not working.

Older Model.

I have a FC Twin. (although I think I'm going to replace it soon, it's a stubborn thing) Which plays NES and SNES games.

I also have the first Playstation and a Gamecube with the Game Boy Player attached to it so I can play older Game Boy games. I also enjoy using emulators, especially for SNES games that I can't find.

Am always behind when it comes to the newest stuff...I may soon be finally getting a DS. I like coming late in the game because everything is cheaper!!

I hear that! It's insane how much prices go down. My BF always wants to get everything right when it comes out because he's all excited and I try to explain that if we wait a few months we could save over 100 dollars but alas, in one ear and out the other when it comes to boys and toys.

I play Xbox 360 primarily these days and we just got Kinect for it, but back in the day I used to play nothing but older systems. I'm still in love with SNES and used to play Mariokart and Kirby's Avalanche daily, and I love Sega mostly for Sonic and Star Fox.

I totally understand that as well. Whenever a new game is released everyone rushes in to buy it. I usually end up buying it half a year or even a year later and end up saving so much money, usually around $60 or more! Sure by the time I play a game there are usually already sequels for it out but I still enjoy the game so what's the rush?

ROMs of old games, since they're stored safely away. So technically PC but I chose 'old model.'

I LOVE Sonic games. They are an addiction.

Actually, Kirby is pretty addicting as well.

Used to play a lot on the 360, but then my gold membership ran out and I'm too lazy to buy more.

So nowadays I play most of my games on the PC.

Most games on PC, some DS too but thats more "boredom solving silly games on bus" than proper gaming. I play on my friends Xbox/PS3 a lot but wouldnt get enough use out of it at home to warrant buying one

This but I chose PC. I use DOSBox and Steam (for newer games). Have an NES emulator but I didn't like it that much, so I seldom use it.

I generally play my PS2 and Gamecube(there's so many games I missed that I can get for really cheap now). Or, at least I did before I brainlessly left the AV cord within gnawing distance of my rabbit about a month ago.

Lately, I've been on my PC a lot, playing an MMO and the emulators. I occasionally use my 360, but I haven't touched my PSP in months. Anyhow, I chose "old model."

Does anyone use emulators on their phone? I just got an HTC Legend mobile phone and put a GBA Emulator on it. I already have three versions of Pokemon, Super Mario world and a few Zelda games on it. Works pretty well and so much fun to have those games on my phone all the time.

I only use my PC. The last console I bought was a PS2, and that a decade ago.

I guess OTB would count as an "older console", so that got my vote. I'm guessing most of you won't have any idea what I'm talking about.

But I also play chess on the internet, so PC would be my second choice.

We have the Xbox 360 and original playstation. Mostly on those I play games like Fable, Two Worlds, Guitar Hero and Spyro lol.

Usually though we are on the computer - I play EverQuest II and hubby plays Warhammer. We just amped up our computer with a new video card and 2 more gigs of RAM, so hopefully no more crashing to desktop or lag until death.

on PC: World of Warcraft (got the collectors edition of Cataclysm , Starcraft II, Oblivion

Wii: Harvest Moon (Animal Parade and Tree of Tranquility), Wii Fit Plus, Wii Sports & Sports Resort, EA Sports Active... and I love that I can play my GameCube game: Dance Dance Mario.

I'd like to say I'm more active and therefore use my Wii fitness games more than my computer games... but it wouldn't be true at the moment.

Nowadays, I do most gaming on Xbox 360.

Used to be PC before I got one, though.
