PC. hands down.


/Agree. I could not imagine trying to navigate the pipboy inventory w/ a console controller after using the superior mouse and keyboard scheme.

Mouse and keyboard combination rules in my view...much more fluid movement...

Maybe I am an old die hard PC buff, tried console game controls and just found pc much better...

Do not own a console, however....

Got it for the PS3 runs like a dream, and I know it would have struggled on my PC. Although I do miss my ASDF + mouse for shooting, the VATS system does a good job of making it more RPG like. Plus it looks cool!

I always been a console gamer only yesterday did I build my first decent gaming rig e8400 4870 and the games run great I have it hooked up to my 42 inch lcd an have the motherboard connected to my 5.1 sorround sound...

I can still enjoy the theater gaming effect with pc but when it comes down to it theres not that many games for PC as there is for PS3 an 360 but alot are locked at 30fps which for me is sometimes very annoying I would definitely recommend updating your pc theres nothing like gaming on a great pc..
