Why do people spend more time with console wars than playing games?

I liken myself to the ignorant civilians who would picnic near a Civil War battle.

I can enjoy an epic horror show from the safety of distance and indifference, yet I shouldn't be surprised with the ensuing collateral damage, and how it might affect me as a gamer.

A brother kills his brother... But an entire nation mourns.


So Microsoft gets kicked out of the Video Gaming console race and we'll sort of feel a type of sympathy for them...

I guess we'll do that because of human nature. I watched a video of the Soviet Union flag lowering for the last time and I couldn't help but feel a sort of sympathy for the former country.

I'll confess I'm at work, entertaining to watch you people get all grumpy pants.

This. I actually can play games 50% of the time. F2P browser based mmo's ftw.

it's more like trolls vs fanboys. Specifically, xbone fanboys.

Sony fanboys are content. Their console is number 1 and everything is going great for them, which is why the ps4 forums are calm.

Then you have the xbone board. Trolls mission is to bring tears to the eyes of fanboys. MS gave these trolls a truck load of ammo to use against xbone fanboys. In the end, the trolls always win. They get a good chuckle out of upsetting fanboys, and the fanboys feel the need to be present and defend xbone. one side does it for the lulz, the other finds it a necessity. You get the difference.

it's kinda sad when you realize it. That's why you ignore trolls. It's such a simple concept, yet every troll thread I visit, dozens of xboners acknowledge said troll and bump the thread. definitely a face palm moment.

I speak from experience ;)


It's also sad when people revert to calling Xbox owners "xboners".

The same reason I activated the Death Force.

The joy of internet word battle with real feelings on the line is just as fun as video games.

2.1 mil in 30 Countries VS 2 mil in 13 Countries = Xbox is number 1. Almost even sales in half of the places.

Sorry Brony.

I just like to hang out here to see all the desperation, reassurance, and delusional. :v It amuses me. It is like a soap opera.

That is no excuse. I'm sure I can find 100 other things you can be doing than surfing this board at work.

With the economy the way it is your employer chose to hire you and you repay him like this? Get off these boards and make yourself indispensable to your employer lest you want to be on the unemployment line.

"I hated this game, the controls were awful," isn't trolling... But you'll probably still get modded.

People can do both. It's called, "multitasking."
