Small independent-type games on PC, retro computer and console games, Nintendo DS. Don't have too much use for modern big-budget gaming (PC or console,) there's too much money involved for them to be allowed to risk it on making things interesting :/
Computers: Amiga 1200, DEC VAXStation 4000/60, DEC MicroPDP-11/73
Synthesizers: Roland JX-10/MT-32/D-10, Oberheim Matrix-6, Yamaha DX7/FB-01, Korg MS-20 Mini, Ensoniq Mirage/SQ-80, Sequential Circuits Prophet-600, Hohner String Performer

After 15 years of Amiga gaming I was sorely missing driving games. That's 95% of my gaming nowadays on my laptop.

I prefer games that become toys after they're finished, whatever type that makes me.
I sold my Amiga for a small fortune, but a part of my soul went with it.

wow, first time I ever got to tick all the poll results :)

Although a lot of my modern console time is spent on XBLA or indie games. Quite often a bit retro. They are just so much faster to play when your time is at a premium.

Friday night is games night for me, start off with RPG/boardgames, play a few retro games, then into the lounge to play Xbox360 on the big TV...well, once the missus goes to bed!

Any reason for the swearing in the poll? International audience and all that, or is this site Adults Only now?

I love playing 'System Update' and 'Game Update' on my PS3. By the time these are done, there's no time for playing games. It used to be that you could grab ten minutes here and there with gaming...
