A short and small piece of post E3 blah blah I need to get off my chest...
What is with all the cutthroat, platform bashing BS these days? Why was the E3 show more like the Superbowl, with people routing for one or the other to win? I don't get it.
Personally, I hope all the systems win. I hope they all create unique and fun games. That's it. When it comes down to it, the box is only a box that allows developers to make the best of them. They will all have limitations. They will all have annoying parts of them that could be better. And they all will try to take as much of your money as they can (while making it look like a value). Corporations are corporations, and if you really wanna support only one, you'll eventually find out some pretty horrible things underlying the surface. They are all greedy when it comes down to it. Trust me, these small details on the surface are covering a very elaborate and divisive plan to get you hooked and spending all your earnings on them. It's no secret.
So let's remember that the best games are on all sorts of systems and you may find yourself with all of the new next generation systems if all goes right. I love games, and I'll buy whatever system the best experiences live on, and I'm mostly broke due to my addiction :).
I'd love a world where even more games existed, and to cut the throat of any platform, any developer or any publisher is really just cutting your own throat. We're gamers, and we love fun games. Who cares what platform they play on?... unless of course, they are exclusives, and then you'll find yourself buying that system too, and that's an awesome thing when it comes down to it, right? Supporting the game industry in any way is a good thing as it keeps it going!
I just wish people would stop buying into the corporate BS! Stop bashing games/systems, cause you know you love them, and it would be a sad world if they never existed in the first place. Some seriously talented people out there are building experiences just for you, as sponsored and paid for by these mega billion, military funded companies. We need to support the talent and keep them working on cool stuff for whatever system their building for. Who cares about their greedy, talentless bosses?
So go reserve all the new systems already... and quit complaining ;)
