Hm, yeah, I've never used a third-party program while playing an MMO, in all seriousness. I suppose if you want to use that as an argument, I can't really say anything against it seeing as I have no first-hand experience with iy myself. And playing on a laptop... come on, you're not really trying to compare that to playing on a desktop or console, are you? I used to have two TV's in my room, but I never enjoyed watching TV while playing. I still believe playing on a console 'most of the time' is a more comfortable experience, especially compared to having a laptop on your lap for extended periods of time.
Well, I don't literally put it on my lap. For example right now, I'm laying in bed, on my stomach, with a pillow under my head, and the lappy sitting in front of me.
I also prefer certain games for certain systems. I'd never play a FPS or RTS on a console, I'd never play a fighter or a sports game on a computer. RPGs are a tossup and can go either way.
And I'm so used to multitasking that I can't not do it in many cases. I usually can't concentrate on a game unless there's something else going on. There are very few games for which I can just turn off the lights, sit back, relax, and enjoy the game by itself with nothing else going on. Even if I'm not paying attention to the TV, sometimes I just leave it on for background noise, although I'm usually at least half paying attention to it.
