I'm a big retro fan, so I don't really know how to answer this without listing everything I own (a lot of different consoles and a couple old computers one of which is the same age I am).

But I suppose I've been using my PS2 and Nintendo DSi XL the most lately. And in the current generation, I love the Xbox 360 and it's awesome shoot 'em-up library.

I have a DS, PSP, 3DS, GameBoy Advance and an Xbox but the DS is the only one that sees much use, as I play it almost every day.

PC, and a 3DS for the somewhat smaller game library I have for that console. Not everyone can afford to get all the different platforms, you know, and when you plan on doing more than JUST playing games, the PC becomes a very obvious default choice. (Not a Mac, though - if you can afford one of those, you have no business *****ing about not being able to afford an Xbox or Playstation or the like...)

Besides, I just don't like the FPS controls on consoles, anyway - by far preferring the mouse/keyboard combinations I grew up with (all the way back to Doom in the very, very early 1990s) - and the somewhat wider range of options that come with a machine with which it it possible to emulate a number of older systems...

Hmmm, maybe I should fire up the ol' C64 emulator and play me some Ghostbusters again... :D

The ones that have hardly any JRPGs on them. That is the only common thread I can find.

I split my time equally between my PC and PS3. The PS3 I'll play sports games and also my old PS2 and PS titles on it. My PC I'll use for everything else. I like the fact that there are a wide variety of mods available for some PC games so that you can almost extend its shelf life indefinitely like all the Bethesda titles and also Sims 3.

Dude. It's awesome that you found these forums and are really excited to participate in conversations. But do you really need to flood everyone's new/unread posts sections with threads that have been done for a long time? Like, this thread is nine years dead.

A bunch of the stuff you've posted in has been past the necro-posting limit for the forum rules, but this one is, like...several generations of video game consoles have been released and become obsolete since this thread was relevant. :stickytongue:

I play on the Nintendo Switch the most, although I do use my laptop for some games (okay, Forge of Empires mostly). I also own a Wii, and play on that sometimes too because I like some of the games on there and I can pick up games for that cheap as chips secondhand from some shops.

Interesting thread.

I'm PC exclusive (and maybe Android). I never own any console. Not even renting or want to have one.

I play mainly on PC now. The 1660 Super I bought last year will be enough for the next 5 years or so, until GPUs stop being expensive. Or I'll just get a prebuilt.

PC is for RPG Maker, and PS4 is for everything else. Praise be.

I play on Switch most of the time with my kids. When it comes to PS5/XSX I only play games on PS5 that don't release on game pass OR games that I have always played on one of the consoles. Resident Evil games for example I always play on Playstation, it is just a weird tradition in my head.

added a Panic gauge to battle. it fills up according to your actions. each character has a different passive that activates once the gauge is full. also once full, a countdown starts and after each action taken, the gauges decreases. with each character, the decrease is different.
Genuinely considering making a thread informing people how to Google.
It's time for Da Update...

Prototyping some overworld abilities. Some of the characters you'll meet on your journey can use special overworld skills to travel around. This can be something like digging holes in the ground or getting hints towards your next objective.

Even more things I made.
Equipping Abilities is very important.
