    Mouse and keyboard for life unless it's Smash Brothers or Metroid.

    Same. Generally PC versions are heaps better - they're cheaper, can be modded, free DLC (vast majority of games at least), support a wider range of control options, better graphics & higher resolutions.

    Unless they're also on handheld systems. I get my Tomb Raider and GTA fix on PSP and generally prefer Nintendo's long running IPs on handhelds (except Mario). But that's just me :)

    I agree, if you like tweaking your stuff and is not afraid of technology, PC version would be the best.

    I choose PC first, mainly for the controls and it's nice that it supports higher settings. I like V-Sync. :eek:

    But it depends on the type of game.

    For games like Ghostbusters, I'm thinking about getting the Wii version and PC version, since they differ from what I understand.

    PC for most multiplat FPS's, all RTS and misc games.

    PS3 for everything else UNLESS the quality is notably worse than the 360 version. I prefer my whisper quiet PS3 to the jet engine disguised by MS as a gaming console.

    Just a little correction :)
    Out of PS3/360 games I'll generally go for 360 since I much prefer the controller and standards present. But on the same hand I could never imagine playing PS3 exclusives on the 360, my LBP hands are forever used to the PS3.
