What do you like playing your casual games on best. Do you prefer downloads or do you like to have the disk ? If you like downloading your games who do you like downloading from best ? You can vote more than one and if your preference isn't listed you can post your preference.
Thanks

I download from Big Fish 90% of the time. The other 10% I download from Spintop. But SpinTop is more expensive, so that's why I hardly buy from there anymore. Only if I know Big Fish won't be getting the game I want, for example Mortimer Beckett 3.
I buy CD's of adventure games, unless BigFish has it available for download. BigFish also offers you the choice of a CD or the download or both.
When you are a club member there, they have all your purchase history. So, if your computer crashes, or gets a virus, and you are forced to get a new one, all you have to do id go to their site and they give you all your game installs. You lose nothing!! It's nice!

All the fancy things like Wii, I deliberately haven't tried, because I would never get any work done!! Same goes for our son!

lol my son and I are such console and computer junkies that it really takes a lot of effort to get any work done around here.

It is good to know that about Big Fish because I think they are going to have Decay which I want. Smile

I play mostly on the pc...but I also have a DSi that I bought for traveling. I can only read so much on an airplane or in an airport.

Last year I had to fly out to California for a conference...a long trip. I brought along my DSi and played. While waiting for a connecting flight at LA airport, a colleague from Texas found me and observed my intense concentration on the DS. He thought it was a device like a blackberry or the latest portable electronic for business and email. I had to confess to him that I was playing a game! Laughing (I think I was playing Mystery Case Files Millionheir.) He just smiled when I told him...."You know me Merlyn (yes that is his name)...I'm always playing games!" Laughing

I download most of my casual games from Big Fish Games on my WinXP, but recently I bought a NintendoDS Lite (handheld console) and finding some very good games there. Currently I'm playing Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney and enjoying it immensely!

I'm 100% PC and mostly use bigfishgames for downloads. Sometimes though I'll download straight from the developer.

I just bought 2 DS games today from Amazon and I'm going to play them on my PC by running them from a DS emulator.

I cast one vote - PC

I use my desktop PC for gaming. I get my games from BigFish 99% of the time. I did try a DS for a while because I really liked the Professor Layton games, but the screen is just too small for me to enjoy the experience.

I like playing on my desktop too. I've played a few games on my laptop but the screen is just to small for most of the games to be enjoyable for me.

Hello all, I play everything on the PC. Just like Lakerz, I prefer to download
from the developer. I love letting the developer know how much I love their games.
As a person with poor eyesight, my 1st consideration is always to the size of the screen.
