At my home or apartment
At someone else's home or apartment
At a restaurant (24 hour or otherwise)
At a gaming friendly store or business
At some other public place
On the internets
My curiousity is acting up again . Where do you usually game? In my experience, it's usually been at someone's home or apartment (occasionally mine) or at a 24 hour restaurant. I prefer the comfort and casual atmosphere of someone's house more than a restaurant, but I think it might be easier to get the game going in a public place. Meeting in public makes the gathering feel more formal and business-like to me.
One of the Shadowrun games was at my house but since we're getting ready to move, we're playing at one of the other players' house temporarily.
One game I play in is at the GM's house (he's running Battletech now so I'm not attending that one but it's a Game of the Week situation so I did play in the All Flesh Must Be Eaten game and ran the Paranoia GotW sessions).
One of the other Shadowrun games I run is at a conference room that is available to the residents of the apartments one of the games lives at (so it's not his apartment but it is at his apartment building).
I also run the Shadowrun game at my FLGS from time to time.
The FLGS close to our new place is panting heavily as I'm their first real live Shadowrun GM and they've been looking for one
Depends on the group, but I've gamed at all, and preference for none. I go with what works for the most.

usually the internet for me, but i also have a single game going on at another's house that just happened recently.
The problem with this poll is it only lets me vote once.
Sure I run my game in my home, but I also play at Oakland University on Fridays. Sometimes we go to the LGS that has more game space than store space. I also have online games.
So the correct answer is "yes".
I tried playing at a game store, but they kept kicking us out too early (8 pm when the game started at 6), so I moved it to my house.

Fortunately, for my Tsojcanth campaign, I had a husband & wife that needed to be able to host the game sessions at their house. This way they didn't have to pay for someone to watch the children.
When I GM I need to host the game. I don't want to transport the terrain and all the minis I use. I also use an office butterfly to hold most of the resource info I tend to use and the music is on my computer and the CD player. It is just so much easier for me to have the players come to my place. It's not perfect yet as I would like to get a better lighting system and maybe a better table set up, but for now it works better than anywhere else.
