    There's a tech forum?

    I joined this site back in 2011 and never knew this existed.

    It's so.....empty. Like an abandoned building.

    Well, I guess I'll post a topic that won't be responded to. Here goes:

    What's the best current gaming console: PS4, Xbox One or Switch? Or, do you guys prefer PC over consoles?

    I have an Xbox One with a sub to Xbox Live. The techies might prefer PS4, and the Switch is more of a mobile platform, go anywhere deal. That said, I still prefer PC over consoles and I love Steam for that.

    I'm convinced this response time is a record for this forum.

    I got a Switch for my 6-year old and partly to do some Smash with my cousins. That game's a bit kiddie for me, but it's shockingly popular in the e-sport/tournament scene.

    I refuse to ever own another Xbox. I had THREE 360s.....ALL got the Red Ring. An Xbox will never again enter my home.

    I still have a PS3, but I'm getting PS4 the day FF7 Remake comes out.

    Did you check the forum list? There is now a technology forum, running for a couple of months now. I have discussion going on about my crashed HD there.

    You will probably be better off buying (or waiting for) a PS5 by the time this happens.

    I love my PC.
    It's like a comfortable pair of old leather shoes, it's not pretty...but it gets me where I need to go.

    PC definitely. Consoles go obsolete so fast...

    Last generation lasted about 8 years, and was well supported until the end.

    So not so quickly.

    That is not to say that an Xbox 360 was not in need of being euthanised well before then though.

    Looks like this generation will be approx 8 years too before any new hardware is available.

    My PC still runs Might and Magic 1. It came out over 30 years ago.

    Personally I don't do any of that, I play Lichess on my cell and some word games but I don't feel any urge to go into the world of video games.
    I am much more into music composition where I post my acoustic guitar and mandolin stuff to Soundcloud and hope to get over a hundred tracks there, now up to 86 or so. Much more satisfying to me personally than some first person shootemup. But of course it takes all kinds and good luck with your video games.
    I also prefer a DT to laps and totally HATE tablets so I guess that makes me an anachronism doomed to the dust bin of humanity but that's the way the cookie crumbles.
