One Of The Best Gaming Generations, Tarnished By Nonstop Complaining

GXC: "The current generation of gamers have really let me down in a number of ways. The sense of entitlement, the constant fanboy back and forth, and the never-ending string of complaints has really tarnished what was arguably the best generation in gaming of all time."

I agree with the premise of the article, and it needed to be said. In the specific case of Mass Effect 3, I feel it was a failure overall, but nowhere near as terrible as it was made out to be.

Good stuff!

I don't agree with this being one of the best gaming generations, it may be the best technologically but not for actual games and excitement. Living through the past generations it was much more exciting and adventurous. Now its all the same shizz being rehashed. This generation has hardly any originality (and no, we have not exhausted what can be done, just big companies don't take the risks anymore)

There will probably be people saying compare this new game and look how crap the old game is blah blah, but I'm not talking about it like that.

Definitely NOT one of the best gaming generations. It was too long and it seems like the actual gaming portion took a back seat to gimmicky bullcrap. Social Media, 3d and motion controls... all that stuff is great but they're was too much focus on it and not enough focus on innovative gameplay.

Luckily, there were some good gems to come out of this gen.

Yup. One of the best gaming generations, tarnished by one of the whiniest generations of gamers. Fanboys and console wars were invented in earlier generations but they both got much worse this gen. Gaming journalism also hit new lows.

All three companies/consoles should come together to form a Voltron console that connects together into a console super beast.
