As apps become better, their graphics more visually appealing and the gameplay much more creative and well thought-out, how many of you are finding your game console starting to collect dust? If you aren’t willing to invest tons of money into a console, playing games on your smartphone is more practical, not to mention mobile. Personally, I don’t have a console at home, though I may even consider buying one as their uses have become a lot broader than the original Nintendo back in the day. You can now store pictures, videos, documents, connect to the internet, play DVDs (even for 3D videos, TV permitting of course)...not to mention play amazing, life-like games with graphics to blow your mind. And though it might not be the most current fad anymore, playing video games on your PC is still a common practice among many.

It’s safe to say that all courts, smartphones, consoles and PC, have their advantages and disadvantages. Where do you find yourself most furiously pressing buttons or swiping like a madman? Answer either in our survey or in the comments below.

  • ☝ lol pun 😋 I play on all device's Mobile, Console and PC/Laptop #GameOn 🎮

  • I find it funny that my $300 Nexus 4 can play 3D rendered flight simulators, FPSs, driving sims, etc. But my $700 quad core laptop because of integrated graphics laughs at me every time I try to run any game other than minesweeper.

    • Actually, it's development for a specific platform and optimization. Like gaming consoles: weak hardware (long term at least) and still excellent at gaming. Anyway, nowadays, laptops are really powerfull, and although not made for gaming, they can play most of the games reasonably well. In the end, we shouldn't discuss pricing as it has its own ways... Consider overpriced iPhone, new ones cost more than excellent laptops. Apples vs. oranges, pardon the pun :D
