    I was just wondering because a lot of pro call of duty players play on small 20 inch monitors for less input lag also a lot people who record youtube videos play on monitors so they can record easier.
    So what do you guys play on and if you want explain why.

    I play on TV. I sometimes wish I could also connect it to a PC or something when the TV is taken though lol. I don't know how and don't have the correct cables to do it though. :(

    I've always played on a TV. Although sometimes I wish I had a nice gaming setup where I could play on a monitor.

    I play on a TV, but have 3 monitors hooked to my computer if I wanted to switch. I just like the big screen honestly.

    I'm with the vast majority here. I use a TV for gaming (got an old 'Tube TV' for retro consoles, too), it's just a better experience to have the big picture.

    Matt Cooke I thought that was your setup at first and I was like what??!!

    I used to play on a huge tube tv growing up that weighed a ton. I'm pretty sure playing video games on it ruined the display.

    Nowadays I play on a 22 inch computer monitor. I use it both for my computer and video games. I just change source. Your right Matt, monitors have less input lag = better for video games if its competitive. I sit probably 3-5 feet away from the monitor and it's a perfect size. I can see everything and I feel I have an advantage over others when playing FPS games especially.

    Big Tv's are great aswell. If your gaming with people everyone can watch and it's more of an entertainment experience

    I've been thinking about making a whole setup with a monitor and other special equipment, but I have other things I'd rather spend my money on, haha.

    Both, when im not doing YouTube vids, I play on my 55inch Samsung Smart TV. And of course when I do YouTube vids for PS3/4, all I have to do is plug the wire in my Elgato and I use 2 monitors (LG 27 inch and Samsung 24 inch), one for gaming and the other one for a variety of stuff (Internet, music, other stuff). I don't like the set up I have at home right now, that's gonna change eventually when I move into a new place, gonna have like some sort of a studio room...

    I play PS4 and PS3 on TV, but sometimes it gets really annoying, and makes it hard to record. (I have an Elgato HD) I should probably consider buying just a monitor so I could record easier, because I'm not gonna hook it up to this cruddy laptop I'm using to type up this very message.

    TV, I don't upload console gaming on YouTube so I don't really need to use monitors.
