Is Console Wars Still A Thing?
Okay, to start this blog off I’m going to take some precautions. Now, I don’t think I will need my flame shield, but just in case I will grab mine out of my closet. The question that is on my mind is if console wars still a thing.
I did a console wars blog years ago. That was during the era of the PS3, Xbox 360 and the Wii. In this era, everyone fought for their console. And I do mean everything. Which ones had the best exclusives, which one looks better, specs…You name it.
Back then, I can understand. We’re younger and like to fight a lot of games and consoles. Some were legit. But, there were a lot of statements that were out there…
But, do console wars matter in this new era and beyond?
I want to state that this blog isn’t meant to be a who’s the best ever. We have plenty of discussions about that on different message boards.
What I want to know, does it even matter which one is the best.
It’s time for us gamers to face facts. Each console has its perks. Most of the top games are on all consoles, anyways. Excluding some games here and there. Like Uncharted, Horizon Zero Dawn, Gears of War and Halo. You have to buy the console to play these. But other than those titles, it really doesn’t matter.
So, if it doesn’t matter what console you get it then boils down to taste. Which exclusive game you want. And which console has the specs that you like.
For me, I pick the PS4. Even though my two favorite games are Gears of War and Halo, I wasn’t that hard on to play the future titles of both. But, I liked every Uncharted game and would probably miss that one the most. That and the whole Xbox One fiasco before it was released. But, if GTA was exclusive to one console then that would be an easy choice.
You see what I mean by taste?
Also, age plays a factor in it. I’m 29 years old. I don’t care enough to be in an arguing match with someone over a console. You’ll realize that your argument falls on death ears. No one will change their minds on which one is the best. So, you are just beating a dead horse. The one who truly wins is the one with ALL the consoles 😀
So, in the end, it doesn’t matter which console is the best. Because no one cares about your well thought out argument lol
