I don't understand.

Maybe it's because I'm "old" and don't "get it," but why do people spend so much time flaming each other on the XBox One and PS4 boards? At what point did it become unacceptable to just like the system you like without feeling the need to dogpile the competition out of some obsessive-compulsive insecurity?

I'll end up with both, I always do, going waaaaaay back to NES/Sega Master, but I came to these boards to decide which of the new ones I wanted first, and reasonable pro/con discussions are really hard to come by. It's like a mental ward allowed the patients internet access but only to Gamefaqs.

I'm 100% serious. I don't get the point of any of it.

Odd to me as well, there was always the "console wars" but nothing like this

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I honestly don't think there's been a single mainstream system in the past 30 years that didn't have 'must-play' title on it. (I said 'mainsteam' because otherwise someone would have invoked the CD-I)

I'm with TC. I don't understand either. I'm buying an X1. That will be my console of choice next gen, but if someone else likes the PS4 I truly hope they enjoy it. I'm not going to mock their choice.

It's mostly little kids that haven't fully developed mentally yet. The reason this keeps going on and on during every single generation is because when the little kids grow up, new kids take over and start the process all over again. It will never stop as there's always a new generation of kiddos showing up.

At least I hope they are little kids, if they are over the age of 12, how embarrassing that would be.

I think it comes down to he fact most people can (for financial reasons, probably) only afford one console and coupled with having a mental age of about ten, then have to go to enormous lengths to diss the console they're not buying. Re-assurance is the best way to put it I suppose. If you're looking for impartial comments / advice you have almost certainly come to the wrong place, only blind fanboyism allowed here.
