What platform and genre do you spend the most time with?

Lately I find myself torn between the big three, PS5, Series X, and PC. I tend to spread my gaming hours throughout the week among all three platforms, but I know a lot of people that largely commit to a single platform.

I'm curious what platform and genre people spend the most time with. In terms of time spent, it would probably be Destiny 2 on Series X for me, with single-player exclusives on PS5 being a close second.

What games or genres, as well as platform, do you spend most of your time with?

PC is definitely the most played, as it can play games from all generations and different consoles.

I mostly play multiplayer games with my friends, whether it be action, adventure, building, fighters, platformers, racers, shooters, VR, etc. Whatever we feel playing at the moment, is what we'll play.

All kinds of games on PC and PS5. I tend to gravitate towards shooters and linear action games but overall I will play pretty much anything if it's fun and interesting.

i only have pc so i play all my games with my trusty old PC
but through PC, I play lots of ps2/ps3/x360/nes games. its really refreshing for me to play some old emulated games occasionaly every now and then
these days though its a mixed bag, no specific genre, i just try to clear my backlog...

I play about 85% of the time on Series X. I play WRPGs the most, but I also play FPS and TPS shooters, Action games and lately MS FS2020 a lot. On my Switch I mostly play little point and click games

Xbox and online shooters.

To be honest it's more like "Xbox and PUBG" haha.

Mostly PS5 - currently playing Control and F12021. I have the occasional go on MS FS on Series X but the lack of actual ‘game’ is causing me to lose interest quickly - I really don’t have the free time to watch the world pass me buy for hours on end. It seems like something I would enjoy more if I was retired and had lots of free time. Switch has been very quiet of late - mostly played by my daughter who enjoys Animal Crossing.

Edit: I don’t really have a favourite genre, I suppose I’m a bit shallow, in that I love the big budget extravaganzas. But that’s mainly because at best I get an hour or two a night to play games.

You sound a bit like me. Do you find your playtime is pretty even across both new consoles, or does one dominate?

Xbox 80% of the time. All other platforms (old and new), the other 20%. Racing and JRPG's are probably the top but I like a variety of everything.

PS5.

I have Demons Souls Remake, Dark Souls 1-3, Bloodborne, Sekiro, God of War and Modern Warfare 2019 installed.

I love souls games and GoW.

I occasionally play some hardcore TDM on Modern Warfare. Although I’ll end up erasing it for Battlefield 2042 come October.

PC is the only one I play. I spend most of my time either playing jrpgs, rougelikes or reading visual novels.

PC hands down. Then followed by probably Switch, then PS5.

The Steam Deck will take the Switch's place once that arrives.

PC a majority of the time. A lot of different games but a lot of MMORPGs. PlayStation to a lesser extent. Mostly for exclusives and multiplayer games like Battlefield since PC is a shit show of cheaters. I rarely play my Switch but from time to time I hop on.

I mostly play JRPGs and other Japanese games so my Switch will most use and going even more once SMT5 comes out, but my PS5 will also get some use because of Tales of Arise.

PS5 & Switch.

Action-rpgs, JRPGs, WRPGs, roleplaying games in general. Love them all. I also do dabble a lot with open world, platformers, point and click, horror, cinematic games, all that good stuff. I play a lot of genres. The only ones I don't like are sports, puzzlers, dudebro shooters, fighting games, MMO and online co op games such as Fortnite and shit. Not really into competitive either.

Xbox: Fifa & Gamepass.

Fifa have been my game of the month for me. Been playing it alot, Since I had ear pain for 3 weeks. Only game I could play during the ordeal. I am impressed how good it is. Campaign is nice, and you feel like a hero, when you take a loser team, and make them win the champion league.

Series X and Xbox in general, sometimes PC. I can do both, yay.

I used to be an FPS fiend like the typical Xbox player that I am but CoD use for 10+ years severely burnt me out on them.

Racing games, Puzzle games and good Story based games mainly. Gamepass has introduced me to games I would NEVER have purchased or even looked at.

Right now I'm down to just my Switch, but I might pick up a Series S or X ahead of Halo (if I can even find one in Tokyo), and I'm really looking forward to the Steam Deck.

EDIT: My fav genre at the moment is whatever For the King is. Party Game? Turn-based RPG? Tabletop SIM? Whatever it is, it's amazing with friends and family in local multi.

I flutter between Series X and PS5 all the time but my main vice are the Skyrim’s / Fallouts / RPG’s of this world.

Can't really pinpoint accurately, I play on all my devices (Switch, SeX and PS5) pretty equally. Obviously JRPGs are probably the biggest time sink, since I rarely play multiplayer games these days.

1. PC since I like high framerates and play some serious open world timesinkers there, No Man’s Sky for example.

2. Xbox Series X is getting close because of Gamepass, been playing lots of The Ascent and Flight Sim lately.

3. PS5 because of the exclusives, finished Ratchet recently.

4. Quest 2, having some fun with The Room VR right now, and I use it to play PC games with VR too but that’s another reason why PC is at the top.

5. Switch, I… don’t really want to play on it anymore, just hate-playing some Skyward Sword because the kids want me to play it.
