Do people prefer gaming on their iPad, as apposed to gaming on their Mac (if Mac versions are available) ? or do they prefer the "other side" for gaming instead ?
While the iPad has many good games... Most of my iPad 3 is taken up with games, while those few left, are apps, most of the games eg from the days of the Amiga to those on the PC, like Street Fighter IV. Also taken into account other things that are by-passed on the ipad app of those games like (eg.. needing to activate an EA game or regular internet checks for sake of checking eligibility, to the controls, and graphics (most being in a available HD for the iPad), I'd prefer these games any day over their equivalent computer version, this includes playing on Mac.
Any one feel the same ? or do people prefer using dedicated computer for gaming ?
Thats just me, coz its easer than firing up a Mac, just to play something i already have on iPad.
And at purchase, i'd prefer the app any day too.

I'm pretty much a retro part-time gamer these days, I bought a couple of the classics for my iMac...Bioshock, Quake, and Doom, but I do have a lot more games on my iPad than on my Macs.
I like it because the Ipad is great to use at night and I have a pretty full games folder there...My MBA has no games at all installed, and my MBP just has a couple of little "Time wasters" Pool etc.
The ipad is great for gaming, and I can stream to a 37" TV in my bedroom. I have never once even considered the Bootcamp option for gaming at all.
..That's All Folks

- it has a much superior screen compared to my late 2009 17" MBP
- I can play anywhere; for example, while having a lunch. Ideal for quick multiplayer games like Spectromancer.
