What platform should I get?

Consoles? I don't own any other than PS3 and PSP right now so I can't recommend between Wii, Wii U, XBox One, or PS4. I've been thinking about getting a PS4 for some time but haven't really had the time to play games lately.
If you have the money go for a good gaming laptop. Again it depends on what your goals are? What do you want to play? What your spending budget is? etc. Gaming laptop is probably more expensive than console options but you can use it for work, or school work and play games. I personally like PC games more than console games all because of this website:
But then there's always smartphone apps that are games, same for things like iOS games for iPads, and various gaming apps for Android OS devices like tablets and smartphones. Those would be the most budget friendly and if you're a casual gamer that don't have large amounts of time to invest in playing video games then it's a really good alternative.

A gaming laptop is really the best choice if you are a college student like me. I couldn't justify buying a gaming system due to the cost of the system plus accessories not to mention the price of games. I could however, justify a decent gaming laptop because I also use it for school work. It was around the same price as a system. I would love to buy a system but right now it's just not in the cards systems are a lot more money than they use to be.
However, if you want to try handheld gaming the Nintendo 3DS is pretty affordable now and since it as been out for quite a while there are tons of games to choose from.
