i've played games all the way from the atari sytems and the sega master system. Through the snes, n64 and ps1 and 2, jumping across to an xbox, and not long after a 360. Two years ago (maybe less?) i was competely sold on ios as a gaming platform, and an ipad2 became my primary gaming device, which I generally play for 10 to 15 hours per week. Since then though, the consistent ios and hatdware updates have turned me off ios as a long term platform. The thought of having games that used to work 6 months ago become no longer usable with an ios update (square enix and cave games are recent examples) is leaving a bad taste in my mouth. I purchased a 3ds around 12 months ago and I love the fact I don't have to continually worry about os updates breaking games. And don't get me started on gamecentre...working on achievements that don't register...arrrgh! I've upgraded from and ipad2 to a new mini, but am playing less and less games on it. Besides an unhealthy hearthstone addiction (over one week now without a game, it may be broken), there are only a few ios games that I still pay regularly - 868hack, Hoplite, and all time favourite forget-me-not are fantastic, but now my serious gaming is on the 3ds - and I know I cam return to it in years to come. Between the 3ds and the games I continue to play on ios, my 360 is colllecting dust...so, what other platforms does everybody else use?
