Through what devices do you play video games?
Computer? Home Console? Portable Console? Tablet? Through the TV service? By the mp3/mp4 player? Cellphone?
I'm about to play Borderlands on my laptop, but... aw, snap, let me just show it to you:
It doesn't want to put the picture in for some reason... Anyway, PC, Xbox 360, PS2, and DS, mainly. I have a modified original Xbox that I play some Xbox games on, but it's more used to play SNES games on because whoever programmed the controls for that made using an Xbox controller pretty smooth for that experience - it's slick and snappy and feels right. And I use a modified PSP to play GBA games. And I have a Wii that I hardly use (also modified) and my brother has a PS3 and his own (unmodified) Wii.
I was really into console modding there for a while. Don't look at me funny. I also had a jailbroken iPod Touch for a little while that I (legally) played Peggle on.
ps3, a poor gaming pc(it wsent made for gaming as a result it runs minecraft/torchlight/terraria at an inconsistent framerate though terraria doesnt have it as MC or TL), ds, psp, Xbox360(its my brothers though) original X-box(again my bros), wii(though not very often).
thats about it.
PC, Xbox 360 and iOS. There are a LOT of really good older PC and console games on the app store. Playing GTA III at a faster frame rate and with higher graphical fidelity on a handheld iDevice only a decade after its release has me incredibly excited for the future. Imagine playing Skyrim on the iGoogle 360 Handheld Hologram Field in 2022...while taking a dump. Fucking awesome.
I tend to play in cycles. There was a time where I was all PS3. There was a time when I was all 360. Now that I finally juiced up my PC and hooked it into my TV as well as my monitor I'm now all about the PC. I have a feeling that I'm going to continue to be all about PC for the forseeable future.
There's just something great about playing something like Borderlands on my main screen while simultaneously half-watching videos on my secondary screen. Also with Steam I can find games without sifting through ads and buying spacebucks.
