Is the Xbox one still worth it? Say I'm a single player game who loves racing games and fighting games and single player action games, but I also like sitting in front of the tv and watching some Netflix, some YouTube, things of that sort.

Is the Xbox one worth it to me or should I get a ps4? Wii? I already have a laptop and this is purely for the living room.

Discuss?

Depends. If you don't play online you may as well not get a next gen machine. Get a PS3. They're good for netflix and youtube and don't charge for online.

If you plan on playing racing games by yourself the One would be a good purchase for Forza 5 + whatever 3rd party games come out.

Given the way you structured your question, and given that I have already seen you on the board being overly negative and antagonizing to other users, I'm going to assume you know that an Xbox Live Gold subscription is needed in order to watch Netflix and use the other media apps.

But yeah, you should be fine playing games offline and using the TV features without issue.

If you don't play online and don't get Live, PS4 is definitely a better choice. This is very much an online console.

He must have the most fulfilling home life, to literally spend every day on this board for the sole intent to troll.

He really is dedicated though. If only it went towards something constructive in life.
