What is your favourite Current Gen console?

Post by Shinobi » Wed May 18, 2016 4:15 pm

Just wondered what everybody's favorite console/computer is out of the big four and why? To me the ps4 wins hands down great collection of both new Uncharted 4/Until Dawn/First Light and Retro Darious Burst, Resident Evil Remake, Grim Fandango, Renegade, Terra Cresta as well as HD remakes of some of my favourite PS3/PS2/Vita games Valkyria Chronicles, Odin Sphere, Gravity Rush, Beyond Two Souls..

Second place between Wii U and 3DS still undecided

I class the handhelds as current as the 3DS is still sold everywhere, Vita is mostly online but gets new games

I haven't yet voted as I don't own a PS4, and have only just picked up a Vita (love it so far).

Out of the XBone and the Wii U, play time is about the same, while I still put in a lot of hours on PC.

So in conclusion, I don't know!... /end waffle.

Xbox one for me.

Have to admit though, the WiiU has some fantastic games and enjoying it a lot lately. I would recommend anyone to pick one up cheap if they can.

Wii U for me...

It's got Splatoon, the first Mario Kart game I've enjoyed since the N64 one, Mario Maker which is somehow better than every other Mario game out there, the new StarFox game, and too many fun indie games to list.

Only played PS4 and Xbox One on demo pods... so far so so-so :?

PC and 3DS for me.

I like the Wii U too, but there's only two picks allowed on the poll.

Dammit, only noticed the Vita option after I voted. At the moment, I spend probably 90% of my current gen gaming time on the Vita remote playing Fallout 4 on the PS4. It's a great little handheld on its own too.

I voted PS4 and PC.

Looks like a nice healthy spread of votes. PS4 for me, just because of what titles are available.

PS4 as first choice, as it has totally expelled my PC gaming habits, not even Footy Manager or Euro Truck Simulator 2 can get a look in these days. And in second place is the PSVita, despite not having one for a while due to it being broken, I really enjoyed the time I spent with it and the games I played.

PS4 then Wii-U. A nice variety of games across both to cater for various gaming impulses.

3DS is fantastic as well with such a great library.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

In terms of what I own/play on most I'd have to go 3DS and then PC.

Can't vote, have never used any current gen systems and know next to nothing about them thanks to my 'don't read about it, won't spend money on it if I don't know it exists' policy to keep the games from overflowing my house. I've got enough of a backlog.

My most used system is undoubtedly the PS4 but my fave has to be the Wii U.

Just about every game I have for it is a showcase in perfect game design, from Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros, to Wind Waker and Mario 3D Land. Yeah, it doesn't have the quantity of other systems but every game is absolutely brilliant.

Agree completely. Only picked up a wii u as it was a great deal. I have a collection of 40 ish fantastic games.

People are so hung up on the number of titles, however how many do you need when they are this good?

Didn't add a second place but probably 3ds ad they gets a fair amount of play.
