In order to determine which video game console you should play, you must ask yourself a few questions. Are you a gamer? Do you prefer first-person shooters? Racist or non-racist? Dorkly's handy flowchart insults and informs.
what is a video games main function? to play video games. which one is reliable and is least likely to stop working? which one has the most quality games and exclusive games? these are common sense questions people should ask.
The answer is simply Wii.. ONe more thing to add to what you were talking about. Which company came out and said its user base was complete morons that needed them to tell them what their consumers wanted and that millions of them were so stupid they would line up to buy a PS3 regardless of what it offered?
lol, seferoth give it a rest nintendo basically did the same thing with the n64. Yamauchi's fall mirrors Kutaragi's fall almost 1:1
For some it's the PS3 or the Wii. For me it's the 360 Slim 250gb.
I have all three and prefer PS3 most. PS3 has my favorite exclusives. I find it extremely dumb when some one only owns one console and think's it's the best one when they are usually misinformed about the competition. There was a lot I didn't know about the 360 from reading articles on the internet. When I got one for myself I learned a lot about it.
I went with the ps3 because I knew I wasn't going to be gaming a whole lot. It did much more than the other two systems did and so it just seemed like a logical fit to put in the living room at the time. I'm sure the wii and xbox 360 are better gaming machines, I wouldn't know as I've seldom played either, but for what I use it for the Ps3 is just fine.
You flip-flop too much Balt. http://img211.imageshack.us...
But he is right.
@Jezuz I doubt what I did was a personal attack. I used 2 article posts that he made and put them side by side. Everything was within the realm of N4G (that sounded nerdy). Nothing was mentioned about his personal life (ex. family, friends, and work). I did this to simply let others know of Balt's intentions, which is to troll articles.
Buying a ps3 because you don't play much? That's should be the other way around man, given the massive games collection that the PS3 has. "I'm sure the wii and xbox 360 are better gaming machines, I wouldn't know as I've seldom played either". WTF are you saying? Your second sentence just kicks your first one ass. You "seldom played", yet you "sure" about it?
lol at xbox 360 in 2011 ps3 has more AAA,AA,A games than the xbox 360
i went with all 3 until my xbox got the rrod twice. pretty bummed about that. i didnt buy them all at once though obviously. bought the 360, ps3, then wii. each system has their own strengths and weaknesses as well as their own unique games. most played system though is probably the wii believe it or not. its got games that i grew up playing so of course that nostalgia always pulls me in. currently playing donkey kong country returns like non stop. so much fun. ps3 comes in a very close 2nd place though.
I have to agree with you in the best experience is to own all 3. All 3 offer something the others don't and all have very good games. Each of us uses our consoles for different things too. I use the PS3 for Exclusive PS3 games, remote play and PlayTV 360 For cross platform games Exclusives Skyplayer, kinect, Zune and streaming movies form home server to 360. Wii for Exclusive games. At the end of the day there is no best console on the market they are as good or as bad as you make them out to be.
I opted for PS3 at launch, then bought a Wii a couple of years later. For my gaming preferences and schedule, those two are the perfect choices. It's important to make the best, most informed, purchase decisions possible - especially with the economy as it is now.
Some very good questions have been raised. Initially, I purchased an Xbox 360 shortly after launch. I eventually purchased a Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii. For someone that is looking to buy their first console system, looking at hardware reliability, software library availability, and available services is a must these days. Since all three major platforms offer online services, you should also consider whether you want to pay for it (i.e. Xbox Live with its additional content) or not (i.e. the Playstation Network). Of course, there is always Nintendo's online network, but unfortunately it doesn't offer much in comparison.
I went with 360 first but the disk tray broke and MGS4 had caught my eye so I got a PS3 instead of fixing/buying a 360. The PS3 became my main console for 2 years then the 360 S came out, so I bought one, remembered how much fun I had with XBL and so it's been my main console since. Oh and have always had a Wii but that only gets pulled out when huge hits come like SMB Wii, SMG and Zelda.

Most of your points could be said of every other console. Seems your post only proves that ignorance is bliss.
The level of ignorance on this site is OVER9000!!!!!!!!!!
Yep and 720p games listed lol.. Try blockbuster multiplats being in Sub-Hd on PS3.
PC (with antivirus) ,beat
So.... if you're racist.... then the Xbox 360 is for you. That makes sense. /s My answers lead me to the PC, and yet I play on my 360 more than my PC. Im getting a PS3, but it just proves how biased this flowchart is :/ And this flow chart even lacks the PS3. :/
I bought em in this order PS3,Gaming pc,Ds,360 and wii. I play my ps3 and pc the most, and after that the wii for its exclusives. My 360 hasnt been touched since reach and fable 3 and probably wont be till gears 3 is released, atleast my dad(52) is still playing on it.
Lol Possibly the most accurate "Which platform should I go for" article ever.
depends on preference.as for myself... i prefer a company willing to spend the TIME,MONEY and put in HARD WORK in making my enjoyment better.a system where the parent company was willing to wait to release it so that it wouldn't break.actually created a next gen system and not a repackage with a new controller added.or call it next gen with last gen tech. i prefer a system have a selection of developers willing to push themselves.and not just release shovelware.i prefer a system with a parent company that doesn't charge me for EVERYTHING and gives the gamer a break.i prefer to play for free because i already spent $60 dollars. i prefer a system with games in all genres and not just one region's preference on shooting.i prefer a system that doesn't have a gimmick a year that will end up stacked up in my closet.maybe i don't want my pulse taken during a game. i prefer a console with quality.even if it takes 5 years to get the biggest games..... which console could that be.........
I prefer the, "hot women in cosplay uniform" articles over this crap(cause at least its eye candy, which this is crap).
I own all three consoles, in fact two PS3s, I received the MGS one as a gift. I prefer the one I get the most enjoyment out of using it! Hands down it the Xbox 360!
PC 360 Dreamcast Sega MegaDrive SNES NES Wii GameCube PS1 PS2 PS3 PSP GameBoy GBA GBC You know what's crazy? I own all of them except for the Gameboy and GBA.
i brought my 360 1st.loved it for the 1st 2yrs, then got a ps3 and stop paying for xbl a yr later.the ps3 more then caters to my gaming needs. so true about racist and xbox360 lol.one of the reason i hate paying for xbl.
First i had a 360 cause at the time i couldn't afford a PS3. So i waited for the PS3 slim. I sold my 360 and all my games. With the money i got a PS3 Move bundle plus 10 games and an extra controller. Been having a blast with the console and i haven't regretted with my decision since. Oh i had a Wii as well but i got bored of it and i sold it.
On a related note: The Article is Satire! Try not to get hurt feelings because they went to the effort of drawing an easy-to ready diagram, and you found out you may be a racist, or a masochist, or a furry.
Xbox 360 for me, thanks!
Notice how those that prefer the 360 usually don't have to put a list of games and features up? And as for XBL being full of racists, the reason you don't hear that on PSN is because pretty much no one uses a headset and mic.
Or those who prefer 360 can't think of any features beyond Halo?
