I'm a purely console gamer these days, though I did play my share of Dark Forces II and Jedi Academy on the PC.

Console. I get a bit annoyed with PC games because they're all so temperamental. You have to have the exact minimum requirements stated on the package - but sometimes even then it's not guaranteed to work properly Confused

I have a Mac which means I don't play many games in general. Razz

Purely PC.

I used to be just PC, but lately I've bought more and more Star Wars games for my consoles (which are also fairly recent additions to the collections).

For my Wii, I have Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga and The Force Unleashed, and I used to own Lightsaber Duels (until I sold it, cause it sucked). And I'm looking at getting Lego Star Wars III once the price comes down.

For my PS3, I don't have any Star Wars games now, but I did get The Force Unleashed II for it from the library.

I don't have any Star Wars games for my DS yet, but I'm looking at getting Battlefront: Elite Squadron.

A pretty even split, actually.

Valve's Steam service has provided such great deals on so many games that I still rack up a ton of playing time on the PC side. Their Lucasarts bundle is one of my favorite purchases of the last few years

My 360 gets a lot of usage as well, my PS3 and Wii significantly less.

This is the very reason I'm a console gamer. I mostly play my PS3 nowadays.

PC and the occasional console or handheld. It doesn't make much difference to me except in quality. Then, I always go for PC. Neutral

Mostly PC, with TFU for the Wii

I used to be mostly a PC gamer for multiplatform games up until this generation of consoles. Unfortunately, starting with games like Deus Ex: Invisible War, I think a lot of PC games have been designed for console first and PC second. This is true of games like Deus Ex: Human Revolution, although not nearly as bad as Invisible War, and Skyrim. The user interface for Skyrim on PC is absolutely awful and it becomes immediately apparent at character creation, when you have to use the mouse to select the top tabs like face and hair, but you have to use the keyboard for the sub-categories like nose length, hair type, hair color, and so forth. I have no idea how that got past quality control.

The only recent Star Wars games were really designed for console, namely The Force Unleashed, but prior to that I was exclusively PC for Battlefront, Jedi Outcast, Dark Forces, Jedi Academy, etc., with the exception of the Rogue Squadron games, which were console exclusives.

Except for the first one, which did release for the PC. It was my first Star Wars game, and I enjoyed many (and I do mean many) hours of playing that game, joystick in hand. Ah, good times. Cool

I grew up on PC so I like it more than consoles, plus we get to have all kind of cool mods for (SW) games.

But like Crash said a lot of PC games have been designed for console first and PC second which is sad but true.

I'm going to say a little bit of both. I loved playing Shadows of the Empire, Rogue Squadron, and Pod Racer on the N64. On the pc side I played KOTOR and Jedi Outcast.
