Bruhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, now you are speaking my language. I am mostly a PC gamer but I recently picked up a PS4 for that Monster Hunter World goodness. I was on Xbox (360) for a long time before PC gaming and I mostly played shooters like COD and BF. Never messed with the Switch though I do want one. I want to get a RIFT or a Vive but waiting for the GPU prices to calm down before as I still have a 970 and while the 970 can run VR, I'm not about that low quality GFX settings life haha.

Games I am currently playing:
PC: Escape from Tarkov, League of Legends,
PS4: Monster Hunter World and Bloodborne

Yay, I am so glad to see you mention Switch, I don't feel like it gets enough love. Celeste has been played in my house non stop on Switch the last week or so, the soundtrack is SO good, I really need to start playing it myself soon.

Outside of that PC is probably my console of choice. &#x; I just started playing What's Left of Edith Finch, I haven't totally decided what I think of it yet. I also play a lot of Overwatch and not as much anymore, but used to play a lot of Heroes of the Storm. Basically a lot of Blizzard -_-

I have a PS4 which doesn't get enough love or use outside of being a Netflix machine.

But yeah, yay games!

I sport a gaming laptop. The Asus G752 OC edition.

Whatever phone will smoothly play Angry Birds.

What a great post! Close to my heart as well, so I'll chime in.

  1. I'm PC first and foremost. I'll play any multiplat games on PC if I can.
  2. Next would be my beautiful baby Switch. I have fallen in love with this little platform, and am currently playing Skyrim on it again, for some reason.
  3. PS4 claims my number 3 spot, and is ironically getting the most of my attention right now as I'm hopelessly addicted to Monster Hunter World.

So next question, and I'll answer after you guys...

What are you all playing?

Userlevel 6

...Angry Birds.

Oh yeah! This is always a great topic!

I haven't made the leap to PC gaming, but I frequently lose myself to my PS4. I've been into Action/Adventures like Assassin's Creed and Prince of Persia. For a while now it's been Tactical stealth shooters and FPS that's been keeping my attention. Metal Gear Solid has been good in the past but there's a new one that doesn't really look that great. Ghost Recon: Wildlands is AMAZING but I've been pulled away by Call of Duty WWII. Love how it's gone back to the good old boots on the ground!

Games, SO much fun!

I like to game on PC mainly now a days due to the bigger library and ability to carry over from one machine to the next. Plus most of the friends that I used to game with on console no longer play. However, I have the original PS4 and Xbox one day one edition. I also have the Switch. The game that still takes up my time is Overwatch and Rainbow Six Siege. PUBG also had my attention but it is so buggy, so I am holding off.

@dragon1562​ What do you main on Overwatch?

I feel the same way about PUBG 😕 I like it in concept, but it's stiiiiill broken, so I am just sort of over it.

I am a soldier/roadhog main. I also have a ton of hours in bastion but he is a situational pick that is not popular in my tier of comp. Although I can play just about any hitscan hero. I stink at genji and hanzo though since I can never seem to get their timing down.

LOL

EDM and a PC gamer.......

All my PC folks. Just did some remodeling on my setup.

Wow that is a incredible setup. I only have room for one monitor in my dorm so its nothing that crazy but my PC can run most games above 120 fps which is my goal when gaming.

Userlevel 5

That setup is like <insert word that is banned in here, but is the description of something that causes someone to get excited.... but not Jessie Spano's caffeine pills...>

...except... my OCD is annoyed that the pixel dimensions don't have the side-screens lining up exactly with the center screen.  That makes me sad like undercooked bacon 😀

Userlevel 4

Lolol! I need to get 2 more monitors to replace the side ones. That is 3 different monitors up there and I spent a good 45 minutes trying different combinations haha.

You should try and get one super big monitors. Like one of the curved ultra wide.

Userlevel 4

That would be awesome, but i run to many other programs while I game. It's nice to have Discord, Spotify, and a web browser open while I'm gaming haha. Also, gotta keep the baby monitor app open on one of the screens.

Awe congrats. I didn't know you had a baby. Also I use discord as well and often times there is a shortcut you can enter to use the app when playing games like Overwatch. Spotify while gaming something I don't normally, and the web browser would be useful so you could have like a walkthrough up while playing.

Oh well I just rely on my laptop or tablet to be my 2nd screen. In fact I use the Astro A40's for my headset, so if I ever want to combine audio from more than one device it is pretty easy.

Userlevel 5

I don't think I even realized there were baby monitor apps you could have on a screen. That is both cool and sort of scary lol.

I have been so busy lately but I am really trying to get some time in on the Overwatch New Year Event. I need the skins. Have you gotten many of them?

I technically have a dual monitor setup. but I dock one of them for my work laptop so often I don't always use it as a true dual anymore, if only because I am too lazy to keep swapping >:

I had a bunch of in-game credits saved up so I purchased the skins that I wanted. I usually jus buy loot-boxes for events if I feel I don't have enough time but I did not do that this go around. Main reason being my Vegas trip. Plus the new League skins have been the ones I have made use of on my main 3 characters.
