Xbox One vs PS4 Battle: Let’s just enjoy the Party

onPause writes:

I know it is very easy to get wrapped up in the next-gen console war or brand battle on forums around the web, fight with friends in High School or around the water cooler at work but in our opinion, why can’t we just enjoy the console launch and play these new games on the new shiny (and expensive) boxes. (PS4, Xbox One)

Let’s just enjoy the Party
We were just enjoying the party until the party was CRASHED by rabid fanboys.

Gamer - "Can't we all just game and have fun"?

Fanboy - "NEVER!!!!..... Systems need to be ridiculed and gamers need to be ashamed and made to feel inferior for their incorrect purchase"

Precisely. Gaming was ruined by internet forums and head-to-head comparisons. Back in the day, when you wanted to try a console that you didn't have, you went to the store or a friend's house. Now, you listen to chatter on the internet and watch YouTube videos - neither of which provide you with the same experience as actually holding a controller in your hand. And there's always somebody out there yelling about how something you like is wrong or how some technical deficiency means that you're not allowed to enjoy a game.

Fanboys are a scourge.

I truly hate these debates but being in the dark for so long and only hearing bits and pieces always ends up spewing garbage.
