One of the most memorable Christmas gifts I’ve ever received was a Sony Playstation. Since then, video games have been a huge part of my life. I’m proud to call myself a gamer, yet I still get a handful of trolls in the internet who condescend me for never owning a Nintendo console or device. As a kid who was born in the mid-1990′s, I skipped most of the original consoles from Nintendo or Atari. Consequently, I’ve always stuck with the Playstation or the Xbox through the years. I never had the urge to buy a Nintendo console and when I first heard of the Wii U, I was skeptical. I felt that the Wii U didn’t really offer anything new to the table. For me, it was more of an addition developers had to work around with than an innovation itself. Yet, after spending a day at New York Comic Con, all my preconceived notions on the Wii U came into question.
