Poll: What is your official allegiance? Rank em too (109 votes)

PC 51%
Sony 27%
Xbox 11%
Nintendo 11%

You can only pick one for allegiance. Even manticores have their favorites. So choose! I'm with Sony. Been a Sony guy since PS1 days. Even when people were bashing the PS3 the first couple years. Xbox and Nintendo are respectable companies, but their main franchises don't appeal to me that much. Xbox has got the whole Halo/dudebro thing and Nintendo sticks way too much to the same formula. I do love PC games, mostly RTS though. So my ranking is Sony > PC > Nintendo > Xbox. If I had to guess SW is a PC haven because of the PC defense force around here lol. You, SW?

I own a PS1, a PS2, a PS3 along with a YLOD PS3, a PS4, have (had) four PSPs including a PSPgo, a Vita, Sony Gold Wireless Headsets, countless Sony video game software, accessories, and other products.

Apple.

Well PC isn't really a company so it's hard to have an allegiance with it. I guess whatever delivers the best experience. If Sony or MS one day develop a console that's better than PC, I'll switch in a heart beat.

This. The Wii U and PC have the games that I want, so that's what I got.

#27 Posted by cfisher2833 (2150 posts) -

Corsair for peripherals and memory. ASUS for motherboards, and Cooler Master for cases. I go with whichever is best for the money when it comes to CPUs and GPUs.

#40 Posted by TheEroica (14381 posts) -

Honestly, every gen has been different. I usually jump first to whatever platform is being better supported by devs and genres I like. I bought an xbox 360 because of Bioware exclusive support... then EA bought them. This gen I picked up a ps4 because ms seems to need more time to figure out where their console is going to fit in and the ps4 indie support is through the roof... considering indie has wiped the floor with AAA for the past few years, that seemed to be the safe bet for now.

As far as loyalty to a company? Bahahahahaha...

Why? Poll after poll has shown we have more PC gamers than any other platform.

he is, he just likes to say that to try and make his points look less dumb and biased.

I go with the platform that has the games I want to play at the moment. For most of this year its been the PC. Most of last gen it was 360. Before that it was split pretty evenly between the xbox/ps2. This gen im probably gonna stick mostly to xbone/pc

#46 Posted by PurpleMan5000 (7817 posts) -

The only machine I have any real sense of loyalty to is the PC.

#47 Posted by drummerdave9099 (854 posts) -

I've had a PS2, a PS3, and now an Xbone. But I've owned every Nintendo console generation, and have to go with Ninty.

Thats probably because there are more PC gamers than any other single platform. It's not just a GS forum thing.

#49 Posted by Demonjoe93 (9748 posts) -

I don't have an allegiance per say, but I would say most of my favorite games of all time have been on a Nintendo console. I've been playing on Sony consoles for about the same amount of time too, so I like Sony for the most part also.

People are idiots if they think the majority of the posters on here are cows, they get one game that is a 10 and people think this site is just full of sony fanboys.

If we would rank the fanboys it would look something like (going by fanboy topics on system wars and the posting traffic on their sub forums)

  1. Hermits

2nd/3rd spot is pretty much a fight between Sheep and Manticores, if you don't want to count Manticores then Sheep would straight up get the 2nd spot, 4th and 5th is a battle for Lems and Cows.
