Both? But I do prefer to play on PC more, consoles more for exclusives.

I am both, but mostly play console games as most of the games that interest me are found in consoles. I only play PC games if they are real-time-strategy like Age of Empires, Age of Mythology, Dune II: Battle for Arakansis and the older War of Warcraft games. I have not seen any RTS games that interest me in the last several years.

Both. I just want to have fun. Today I played TW3 on PC, Obra Dinn on PC, and Detroit: Become Human on PS4.

PC only. To the max.

I mean, consoles are really limited in the number of genres represented. I'd be so bored so fast.

Console gamer. I find it more convenient plus I prefer to get my games on physical formats and that’s still largely supported on consoles.

PC. Used to play consoles when I was younger; up until the PS2 era of games when I discovered the likes of Counter Strike and Medal of Honor Allied Assault. Played those games a ton back then and have been a PC gamer ever since.

I have them all. PC preferred for single player for graphics, PS4 for VR and mp. Xbox for GP. Switch for exclusives, though my 3yo is claiming it as hers.

Console. Sometimes PC. Replaying the first splinter cell on PC. But the port is gross.

PC gamer for the most parts and I use consoles to play their exclusive games only. PC gamer forever, forever PC gamer!

I can never go back to being a console only gamer.

This is my game time breakdown within reason:

PC 60%

Switch 30%

Ps4 9.2%

Xbox .8%

On second thought It might be Ps4 9.8% and Xbox .2% (I only played one game on my x-box one Killer Instinct. Sad really, but it happens)

I like console gaming. I just like the open nature, modding community and freedom of PC gaming more.

Console only, apart from Football Manager. Used to be PC only when great games like bf2, Warcaft and The Settlers were made only with PC in mind, but those days are gone...

I don't think I'm gonna buy a PlayStation 5. I'm a PC and Nintendo gamer. Sony and MS bore me.

I’m both. I usually mainly game on my pc but for some indies or exclusives I’ll usually play them on a Nintendo system. I find pc and nintendo to be the best combo in overall awesome games released on the platforms.

PC only now, never really played consoles a lot to be honest, the dreamcast was about it in terms of several games.

@R4gn4r0k: Nah, it runs fine, but it's missing levels and lighting effects. Something the PC version just misses. There might be mods but I'm so close to the end, anyway.

Same for me, been PC for a while now.

Since I discovered full genres of games I like that dont exist on consoles, then the only games I like on console (with the odd exception) are mulitplat anyway I dont see the need in owning any of the consoles.

If I only owned a console (s) I'd be bored so fast I'd end up finding a new hobby.

I have been alternating between computers and consoles for 35 years. I spent a lot of time on the Commodore 64 and Amiga instead of consoles. Back then computers were just more fun. But since the Sega Genesis I have been all consoles except from a year or two where I played PC only (around the GTA 3 era). Looking forward, I'll likely stick to consoles for the next many years. PCs are powerful, but they are boring tools in my opinion.

PC. I'm planning on purchasing a nice TV soon, and I might get a next gen console if I like the look of them, but I'm pretty satisfied with what PC gaming has to offer.

Maybe 70% PC, 30% Switch right now. There's a lot to play on PC as usual, but I'm really into Dead Cells on Switch again.

I'm more of a mobile gamer now than a console gamer (and that's saying a lot considering the only mobile gaming I have done in the past year was I downloaded Hearthstone about two weeks ago and started playing it on and off).

All the real games I play are on PC.

Console only.

My computer has always been either a low end Lap Top in the past or a MS Surface that I'm currently using. I find No need to spend ridiculous amounts of money on a high powered PC or Lap Top.

Mostly a PC gamer, but I will use consoles to play exclusives if I think I will enjoy it.

PC, but I usually buy a console late in the gen, and scoop up the handful of games I care about for cheap.
