I was really hyped about the Dreamcast. It was what I wanted from a home console. Had arcade perfect ports and quake online. Shenmue. Damn it was good. I couldn’t understand all those Sony fans and PS2. Even though I bought a PS2 had it a while then Sold it.it wasn’t for me. Too much fifa?!? Wipeout was just a f-zero clone with chemical brothers on the soundtrack I Had a game cube and Xbox tbh all four were great. Sega leaving the console market was a great shame. But after the shitshow of sega add-one and botched Saturn launch. They came out swinging and went down fighting RIP sega.At the time, I was 15 years old and really enjoying the Dreamcast. Nobody wanted to pay attention to all of its great games, holding out for PS2, which had an anemic launch lineup and I wasn't impressed that they didn't update the (in my opinion) terrible gamepad.
I saw Sega being displaced by a competitor with nothing to offer me at all and I was sour about it. Even worse, Nintendo was getting more lame by the minute. Bad time in gaming for me.
i think it’s cultural/geographic. Also where I live, Xbox is viewed as dead or something that is a joke in gaming.Of the big three it's Xbox that gets the boot from me. It's not that I dislike it, I just don't care at all for the brand. Never been interested in it and the image built around is boring and lacks identity. Xbox feels redundant and a waste of money. Third party is the same on PS5 (and very much better in terms of releases, since a lot of developers skip due to poor sales) and Microsoft's first party output is mostly garbage that doesn't resonate with me. And where I live, Xbox is pretty much a third rate video game brand with no future. Xbox One destroyed the brand completely.
As mentioned earlier, Nintendo are a brand I'm in a love hate relationship with. Their hardware is always compromised and cheap, joycons, slow processor, low res screens forever. Their network stuff is always crap, no perpetual licenses, weird friend codes, no party chat. They always want to sell you games at full price, even if they're reissues of 20 year old games. They always keep you waiting for the same IP they always release. The fanboys that put them on a pedestal and argue against any criticism with effectively: "well, I don't mind"
And now look where we are now, now even Sony and Nintendo do it. In my opinion, both companies should have set an example where they kept their services for free and force Microsoft at the time to make a change.If I must dislike one of the big three it’s Microsoft for creating the enormous bullshit that is paid online.
Nintendo stuff since SNES.
Tiger electronics. I bought a Game.com, fuck them.
I don't hate any console or company
I just hate Animal Crossing fans.
Actaully like Sony a lot
Dont fight guys, i dont want that to be what this thread is. I made it with the intent of getting to the bottom of why we feel this way, why we get defensive or upset, and why we bicker about which console is better. Its easy to just fight endelssly in other threads. But its kind of neat to see why users feel the way they do, instead of trying to yell loudly over eachotherWell i'll take your word for it. You seem to be an expert at both lol
