Forums - Gaming Discussion - Which user base has the most skilled gamers Sony, Nintendo or Microsoft?

If you were to pit Sony gamers vs Nintendo gamers vs Xbox gamers in a competition that included all sorts of different games from fighters, shooters, racers, to platformers and puzzle games which fanbase do you think would come out on top and why? For fighter, shooters and racers the results would be pretty straight forward and for platformers and puzzle game it can be judged by who reaches the end of  a level first or who completes the puzzle first.

Why would we need to know this you say?

Its a very simple yet complex psychoanalysis ( I just wanted to use that word) . If someone is an expert at a videogame it would mean that they understand the gameplay in those games at a very high level, so obviously  those gamers would be a good judge of whether a game is bad or good, so with this knowledge we can determine whose opinion we should value the most when it comes to games. After all you would not want to take the opinion of someone on an online shooter of whether it is good or bad and they always die in less than 5 seconds, or take someone analysis on a fighting game yet they cannot even execute the most basic moves in it, or a person that cannot even get  pass the first level of a platformer telling you whether you should buy this game or not.

Xbox has Halo wich has me so there is the answer.

Depends highly on the game. Nintendo gamers would probably win in platformers/party games, Sony in racers/action-adventure and MS in shooters

Edit: Nvm, see that you were talking about multiple games. Then who knows??



PC, wait a sec... I'll go with Nintendo. Some people are just too good at MK even with cheap items...

None.

Skilled gamers do not associate or limit themselves to one brand.

Sony - Most asians.
Long time gamers that have a lot of experience.

Otherwise PC - Especially for shooters.There is no competition against FPS and Strategy Progamers there.
Neither Halo or CoD or any other console shooter from any console takes skill.

With two gamers closing in on 1,000,000 achievement points (one a amateur one a semi professional gamer) I have to go with Microsoft.

Halo doesnt take skill ?? Thats new to me.

Its easier to play CS on Pc than Halo on Xbox i dont know what Halo you have played, probably you confused it with Call of Duty. Yet even Call of duty takes skill to win and strategy.

Take that non sense elsewhere.

Yeah we need multiple games so everybody has a fair chance at their strong points and weak points.

Old Nintendo fans that grew up with the NES, like me. I'm pretty much good at any game I play.
