    I have a more developed dexterity using a keyboard & mouse rather than a joystick or handheld, so those two options will be left aside by me.

    I prefer playing with a PC although I have thought of acquiring a Playstation 3 since nowadays they are quite cheap. Especially used ones are really dirt cheap and would be good enough for me since I don't play a lot with consoles.

    I definitely need a pc to enjoy my favorite open world rpgs. I love being able to enjoy the aesthetics and to immerse myself in games. PC's allow you to enhance the graphics to mind blowing heights. They also allow you to mod your games if you so choose to. That being said, I play my rpgs with my xbox controller. So I sort of like consoles? Lol.

    Lately , I picked up fire emblem and Pokémon titles for the GBA , so I can say that at this very moment I prefer handhelds over table top or PC. Very convenient for those moments in which I have to wait for someone or on my way home in the bus.

    When it comes to RPG I usually prefer it to be on console just so I could see the graphics and story on a bigger screen and won't have to worry about my console running low on power.

    Both are okay for me. Though I prefer PCs to consoles. I don't have any clear reason for this but maybe because I am so much used to them.

    PC seems to be my choice. I have a pretty much good experience with the PC based games. I am also on android and it seems to be another good platform. But so far I think PC based games seems to be good for me. I'd surely be investing into it.

    My little sister with consoles are inseparable.

    I have both console and PC but i have more time on my pc gaming just because it's very versatile. Provided you have a good system hardware, any game can be played with a pc. Either with an emulator or System based, you can never go wrong with a pc in my opinion.

    I think these days the mobile games are pretty much replacing the handheld. And it's lot better in terms of the money saving too. I'd definitely go for the phones with such power over the handheld.

    Many people have gone for consoles of late. Only a few still stick to consoles.

    I personally think that the PC would be the best option.

    Price of PC components is also going down. So there seems to be a lot of gain on that point. I'd say handheld type of consoles seems to be low in sales these days.

    If it is Rpg, I go with handheld devices. It's more convenient to play Rpg in those.

    PC are the best to play RPG with, Consoles are limited and expensive

    I would prefer PC over console, but if you go for console then its comfortable to use!

    I'd say I prefer PCs as well. Somehow I find the controllers on consoles hard to handle, and maybe I'm just not used to it. One thing that I like about the consoles are the exclusives like God of War and Naughty Dog games. How I wish they can port it to the PC too.

    I have found the phone and the tablet to be better for many reasons. I have also noticed that PC can be money saver in such conditions as well.
