    Second love to what? ;)

    PC vs. Console? PC is my first love between the two. But, having just got a 360 S a couple of weeks ago, I'm finding a lot of love for it, too.

    Well, I thought on my girlfriend as a first love:D (mostly, because sometimes when we fight PC gaming becomes my first love:rofl:)

    My experience with consoles is very low, as I remember I tried twice to play on PS3 of my friend and I didnt like it(I didnt use to). I just love the feeling when you have a real control and that means keyboard and mouse in my hands.;)

    I have a really hard time adapting to FPS or anything w/ aiming w/ a controller. It takes a hour to two for myself to be able to play decently.

    I've been preparing myself for console [XBOX 360] for a few years now by using a 360 controller on my PC. I've known for some time that I would eventually get a 360 to play on and didn't want to experience the drastic adjustment to the controller.

    So, I've played a LOT of FPS games using the controller now for quite some time. Of course, though, I'm mainly a single player gamer and don't do much online multiplayer. So, I don't know how well I'd stack up against online FPS opponents. But, in single player games, I do quite well enough. ;)

    That is the thing if I have a game on PC I'll do the old keyboard and mouse. I know the consoles pretty much assist w/ aiming but I had a heck of time with MW2.

    The appropriate option does not exist for me to vote.

    While I do still "game" on occasion, it's just that....on occasion. I don't seem to care about games much anymore. I back-stepped into the past and prefer to play old 80's and 90's arcade games more than modern games these days, if I play anything at all. On PC, that means emulation. On the DS, that means the few arcade compilations that exist for the system and retro-homebrew. I don't have any other systems to game on.

    There used to be a time (not too long ago, in fact....maybe a year ago) that if I was playing a game and was called to do something or go somewhere, I'd be like, "Let me just finish this level first." Now, if I'm gaming and get called for something, I just quit the game immediately, regardless of where I was in the game or what I was doing in it. It just seems that gaming has lost all the importance I used to associate with it before. Not sure why that happened, but that's the way I am with games now.

    We needed an option like; I game occasionally (or casually).

    I agree with you Rayder, a casual option would have suited me too, but the next closest option was HELL YEAH! so that got my vote. I figure I will probably play games all my life (only 16 years into it so far) so there we go.

    I still game I see no reason for me to stop.Good way to enjoy blasting and blowing up stuff. Plus takes any stress off that I might have. I dont really play console games any more, since I spend more time on my computer. So I play games more on my computer.

    I still game, but not as much as i did 4-5 years ago. I find it harder to make time for the gaming.
