Vintage console games mainly, when I play that is. Systems listed in my sig. Mostly enjoy a quick few minutes of shoot 'em ups. Don't care much for modern gaming really at all. Around the time when CD or DVD based gaming became the standard, I lost interest.

I'd call that console/pc combined, the way games should be played :D
Hell yeah! I play games on my pc but Street Fighter 4 and Assassin's Creed go well alongside Disciples 3, Bioshock and Starcraft 2 (as well as quite some awesome Amiga and Dosbox games)

with that comment your more gay than any gaymers :)

retro remixes i listen to in the early 2000, but always did go back to the originals and ended up deleting the retromixes becouse they was not worth my time. so newer bothered with retromixes again ever since.
To each his own, eh ?  If you are basing your opinion on downloading massive files you are missing the experience.  When Slayradio or Scenesat do live shows on irc, that's what it's all about.  The experience with others.  Unfortunately I do not live in Europe and cannot attend all the station gathering parties or a demoscene convention.

as for demos every ps3 games kills everything ever made with the c64/amiga and pc. so why bother?... i dont anymore... demos is something of the past now days and pretty boring. in ps3 games i interact with all these great technical demo effects everyday. thats much more enjoyable :)
I'm guessing you are still a kid?  The whole ps3/pc/xbox/nintendo fanboy thing is redundant, they are just toys and the average time someone spends on a game (which many don't have replay value to them) is less than a week.

Pushing the limits of hardware is not what interests me, demos have songs I grew up with and have have heard changed with different composer's flavor added.  And it sure beats having winamp's standard visuals playing on another monitor while doing something else on the pc.  They are kind of like an old friend, that can keep you company.

If you say it's dead that's your ignorance.  You can get a taste of how big the scene still is by checking out some of the streaming media at

I rarely play my mame machine and my xbox only ever gets used to stream tv shows.  If games is what you live & sleep you might as well be playing world of warcraft.

One of the "retro console" options was supposed to say "retro computer games" :(

I play anything I like on any platform, except phones and tablets... except for Sudoku on my phone sometimes (simple, cheap pre-paid phone with one game) ;) Note: For retro games nostalgia isn't a factor (I'm not a nostalgic person), only whether or not I like the game.

Gee, I haven't played any video games for about a decade...

So I had to go for the bishop-pummeller option...

I play PC games under MorphOS, Windows and Linux (and the occasional Amiga game via emulation.

Consoles just don;t do it for me.

As for consoles, I play mostly Vectrex, followed by my 3DO..
As for retro, it's been (recently) almost all Amiga, with some Vic-20...

As for PC, I've been toying with OnLive and played (badly) Unreal Tournament and Trine on it recently.  
Last game I played through was Prey.
Before that, a lot of Neverwinter Nights.
(Prey and NWN were native Linux versions)

For me it's definitely my ps3. But it's not perfect. It's a closed in system meaning you can't modify it in any way. Ever tried to put a file onto the HD of a ps3 from a pc memory stick? This means i have to use my laptop for things like watching movies, Skype, photos, etc.

I don't buy the idea of a solution for everything stuck inside my ps3 console. It's too closed in in to make it work like that i think :rolleyes:

I think pcs are good in that you can mod out the games which you can't do on a ps3 or xbox. I would love to see a jailbroken ps3 so i can take control of my own hardware :rolleyes:

I try to find time to play the bigger releases on pc (I invested quite some time to finish Fallout 3 for example) but more often Im playing some old stuff using WHDLoad or even better, emulated platforms like NES, SNES, MAME, NeoMAME etc. Only on my Amiga ofcourse, for some reason its not fun emulating stuff on pc, even though it does it a 100 times better and faster. Oh I also have a bunch of old consoles that I play around with, Ive just finished playing the last 'good' games for PS2 for example. Ofcourse I bought all of them.. ;)
