Does ‘Next-Generation’ Gaming Still Excite You?
With the arrival of ‘next-generation’ (also now seen as current-generation) consoles comes a lot of frustration and bickering. Everyone’s opinion is shared everywhere, and it is actually really difficult to write a single article without trivial matters about which is better being mentioned.
If anything, it is a bit annoying that whenever you mention Xbox One or PlayStation 4, someone has to pipe-up with a negative about the console they do not have or do not like. To me, if I buy the Xbox One, I did so because I wanted to, I do not care what you think, feel, believe, heard, or remembered seeing about the console. The same goes for the PlayStation 4, if I choose that.

It is becoming seemingly impossible to actually talk about any console without resolution and, or, frame rate issues arising. Sure, many believe that 1080p is the ‘be all and end all’, and while I do degree to some point that in this day and age it should be supported, if it is not life will not be changed dramatically.
Because of all of the tension between which, and who, is better, next-generation has become a little stale. The excitement dies down almost every time a conversation arises, purely because negatives are brought into play whenever possible. There is no longer a time or chance to sit down and just enjoy the technology and its offerings. We have to constantly be reminded by what is better, and why–with violent opinions.
I sometimes feel unexcited by next-generation’s offering purely because it is difficult to enjoy without cynics commenting everywhere. Playing with the technology was great, and it offers a lot, however the ridicule one faces removes all excitement. Let’s just play the damn game, and bitch about what games are better, not what technology is better.
As it stands, how do you feel about next-generation? Does it still excite you? Your reasons will probably differ, and I hope they do.
