In the last generation I had a PS3 and a gaming-ready PC, where most of my playing was done thanks to Dota 2, and as a result I missed out on a handful of Xbox 360 titles which caught my eye. While I’m not quite fanatical about Gears of War, Halo or Forza, the game Alan Wake certainly had me pining for an Xbox 360, although I was absolutely fortunate in that regard when the game made its way over to PC as well. This generation I was determined to own both consoles for two reasons. The first would be to eliminate all biases and be objective about the consoles going forward, and the second reason was obviously to play the games I would otherwise miss out on, so that I could enjoy the new generation to the fullest.
Less than a year later, however, I’ve grown distant from my Xbox One and have actually decided to sell it. Yet, you may be surprised to hear that it’s no fault of the console itself."
