SNES Vs 360

#1rhh3713Posted 7/16/2013 7:16:45 AM
One is a simple yet very fun piece of hardware that's about 20 years old, the other is a powerhouse of graphics, gaming, entertainment, and everything else at your fingertips.

One you might have to give a blowjob to and tap around a little, the other you might have to unplug and restart five times, clean the disk about 4 times, and repeat the entire process when the game freezes once you finally get it started up.

So in conclusion why is that my 20 yo piece of hardware that my parents gave me for free more reliable than the 4 yo piece of hardware that I paid I think about $250 for?

Consoles with no moving parts seem to last longer. Also, probably because they did not produce much heat.

Because Snes has bad graphics , thats why it lasts longer. It uses less power. Also 360 has more good games. Played the top 15 games of snes the past few months for the first time. I don't get whats so special about super metroid or chrono trigger. They were good. but not OMG amazing.

All fair points but if your going to design something like a 360 at least strive to minimize these issues as much as possible, I rarely if ever move my 360, and keep it more than well ventilated, even vacuuming the dust out of the vents and yet it still decides to start dying on me. I'm just not very happy at the prospect of possibly having to buy another 360.

Lol, bad graphics. They may have "bad graphics," but those games are timeless.

For their time they were amazing games. You weren't by any chance born in the 90's were you?

Before you comment on one of my posts, please research the Dunning-Kruger effect. Best game of all time: Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Gamefaqs mods are a joke.
