Message to all gamers (No Point for Console War)

From the last few years, I have seen people fighting over what kind of gaming console they have. There has been a continuous debate among people on their gaming entertainment. What are they getting out of it, I don’t see any point of fighting or any conclusion down the road. It has become a race of cat and mouse in which every person wants to dominate over another person’s opinion. Moreover, it is like a kid fighting over his toy claiming that his toy is better than others. Of course services, entertainment of any two products won’t be 100% identical, isn’t it? Differences will exist in most of their features.

One will like something it has and suits his requirements and the other has his own choices. I don’t see people doing laptops war or fighting over school saying my math teacher is better than your. Even though they teach the same thing but in different perspective than what others will. I don’t see your parents fighting over what car they own because it suits their needs.

Xbox have many features and games that PlayStation don’t have and PlayStation have many things that Xbox doesn’t have. There will always be something different in both no matter what. Now the new console generation started people are fighting over graphics. For me I call that an unwise act. I don’t see you guys going to your relative house saying hey your TV sucks it’s not 1080p. Reason??? Because we all watch TV to enjoy to entertain ourselves and others. We play video games to have fun with friends and others. We NEVER buy consoles to do console war. There are billions of people and each one might have their own perspective to look over things. One will like Xbox than PlayStation and the other wont. This kind of behaviour will always exist depending on people’s choices. Buy what you like the most but don’t judge one what others buy.

So this is my kind beseech to every person who is reading this article that judging a person’s opinion and debating over it won’t lead you to anywhere but a dirty verbal fight.

Thank you

It's a good thing you came along and introduced the internet to this radical new concept. I expect internet world peace in days.

The real issue here is not so much what preference people have but how they deal with their emotions. Do they have strength and belief in their convictions, can they stand true in the face of mockery. Can they be respectful when it comes to difference of opinion?

Being proud of what you have achieved or the worth of your material possessions is one thing, but how does one handle the fact that there is always someone out there who will have more. Unless people know how to control their emotions of jealousy it will always result in hatred which then leads to ridicule, for no other reason other than insecurity and low self worth. If someone has pride and sensibility then they would have no problems with other people have different tastes, they would be able to converse and investigate why another has interests other than their own.

This is an issue of self respect and respecting others. There is a severe lack of this especially in the gaming community. Lets not even go near the pc elitists.

It's anything where humans get emotionally attached. Fanboy is emotional die hard fan of one thing. Everything else doesn't matter to them

where i see the issue is not so much with the platforms but the platform holders. The systems are just that...the means to play the games. Most hold some sort of animosity towards the companies that produce the units more so than the units themselves.

I have nothing against a game system so long as it provides games that are entertaining to play. Yet if a company that makes the system (or company that develops the games) has some sort of strange policy that is not in the best interest of the consumer then i dont play that game or buy that system.

But there is no need to belittle those who do. that is where years of experience in this hobby is a benefit to have as it helps with being able to respect the differences instead of arguing over them.
