The PC and more specifically Counterstrike.

Seem to spend much more time talking about games than actually playing them these days. :?

I've probably played the most in this order, from most to least:

Amiga (A500 & 1200)
PC / Vic-20
PET / BBC / Electron
The Retro Gaming League _ -= My YouTube Videos =-

Not counting computers...

PS2. But mostly because of its vast gaming library. It's not my favorite console, but it's prolific.

After that it would probably be:

Master System
Xbox 360

I never owned an NES.

'cube, natch :D ...but the PS2 & 3 are catching up fast. Handheld: GBASP

least played: Wii, by a country mile. The most underused console i've ever bought. The first one i had got stolen in a burglary a couple of years ago...the insurance replacement has probably seen less than 100 hours play since then.

Considering how much time I have put into Pokemon as a series alone (has to be 3000+ hours over the last 16 years - no joke) I'd go for the Game Boy series. Pocket and then Advance specifically though.

As for consoles, PS1 and then Cube probably.

Both of which I still adore today on a level above any other machines.

The PC. Even if there are, say, versions on a console I will stick with the PC version. I find it more immersive and I love the keyboard/mouse system, cant beat it.

With the sheer amount of things you can do In RPG's these days it would probably be the PS3 for me.

Haven't played a current gen game legit for years. Was all around the 360 in its first 12 months, then tuned out.

Most played system...probably the Gamecube like you GigaPepsiMan. I was never more excited for a system than when that released, and I was tapped right into the lifespan of the console, following all the news and reviews and buying magazines regularly. It was the one system where I was counting down to every major release, and would rush out to buy them day one. It couldn't go with the PS2 for volume, but from 2001 through 2004 I wouldn't have traded the GC for anything. Doesn't surprise me at all to see people rediscovering it now.

Mega Drive clear second, then prob the PS1 third.

As of now, PS3, since I got PS Plus I just feel obligated to at least try the free games on the service. However, the Dreamcast still remains a personal fav of mine and I do make a point to switch it on and have a few rounds of Tech Romancer.
