I played PC with no issues. I can't imagine it makes a big difference, however you can get it for $12.50 on Steam right now so, why not?

I played it fine on consoles, more specifically the PS3, I was thinking about doing a second play through and I have a choice of Mac or iPad.

If multiplatform, then PC.

Apparently not at all since my savefile just stopped existing.... That said, PC.

I played it on my Mac. It ran decently. Really the only real issues were the previously on Walking Dead segments which seemed to lag and I thought using the mouse when the camera was moving and you had to click on something attacking you sucked.

PC.

Other than one point in a train station where it abruptly switched to a D-pad configuration (HOW DO I PRESS RIGHT ON A MOUSE WHEEL?), I never once felt restricted by the controls. Which can be a thing when screen shake is in effect and you're like "GRAB THE FUCKING LEDGE, LEE"

On the platform of your choice?

No version is broken, sans minor save game issue on PC, so there is no 'best way' to play.

Had the EXACT same issue on PC. Other than that single issue it ran and played excellent on my PC.

It's definately been on sale alot more on PC. So if money is the number 1 issue... i see no reason not to get it on PC.

Xbox version lags

Playing on PC with the mouse (and keyboard for movement). It's great to be able to just lean back and use the mouse for almost everything.

PC since, if anything ever messes up (like my goddamn save not being read when I quit out of Ep. 4 midway through. Damn you, gwhitta!), you can easily make an attempt at fixing it.

I tried to play the iOS version yesterday, but it sucked, the swiping to move about really was not a good control scheme.

I had pretty minimal problems on the PS3. Besides two hard locks, it was relatively smooth and I never had any of the crazy save issues that people seem to be getting on the PC.

With no technical issues, I'd imagine the PC version looks a little better.

I've only experienced the PC version, which was fantastic, so that would be the platform I would recommend. However, I do play it with a controller in my computer-chair, so I cannot see the console version being any less of a great experience. Also, I can't imagine the iOS version being as good (not that it's bad) as the PC/Console; simply due to the fact that it's very engaging and hard to put down once it's begun rolling.

I've heard the PS3 version has the least issues with saves getting overwritten. I've heard people on the PC and Xbox versions both complaining about that (myself included).
