Most Brutal War

Atari vs Intellivision vs Coleco
Nes vs Master System
Snes vs Genesis vs Turbo Grafix
N64 vs Ps1 vs Dreamcast/Saturn
Gamecube vs Ps2 vs Xbox
Wii vs PS3 vs 360
Wii U vs PS4 vs Xbox1

I remember being a kid and having the old Sega vs Super Nintendo console wars. Lol back then the console wars seemed nothing to what they are today. 

Why the hell are people so volatile about the console wars in today's day and age.   I personally think that the internet has a huge part in this and people seem to fly off their rocker when it come to expressing themselves online because there are no real consequences.  I know when I was a kid and if you got in a verbal arguement about what system was better you basically ended up laughing it off in the end.  But today people are going all out, yelling, screaming, fighting,making videos, etc.   It only a matter of time before someone gets killed IRL cause of it.   Maybe it's cause I was a kid and didn't see the big picture and didn't know a whole lot,  but I somehow doubt that.

When I was a kid I had a PS1 and an N64 and to be honest I didn't even know they were competing

When I was a kid, I had an n64, my friend had a playstation but we didnt hate each other for it... Instead, we went to each others houses and played the respective exclusives

I've had a few real life console wars. words like noob and peasant have been exchanged but we dont take it seriously at all.

The problem online is that you dont know the tone the person typing it would have if they were saying it.

:o You mean you and your friend never tried to beat each other to death due to having different consoles?

Lolll nahh, but we did fight to the death after playing games like mario party! And then we helped each other figure out how to beat bosses in games like ffvii. Those were good times

I've had a little real life console war with a friend of mine regarding the WiiU. He was talking a lot if trash about the system, but he apologized after playing 3D World and Mario Kart 8..

Another effect of the internet is that it's harder to tell how serious people really are in these arguments, I cam guarantee you that aside from a select few nutjobs most people on the internet don't give a flying fuck about what other people think about consoles.

Fun fact: I'm sure some people on here view me as a Nintendo hater, does that mean that I can't stand Nintendo fans in real life? Not at all. Both my roommates are more or less Nintendo fans, one is of the opinion that the Wii was the only good console of last gen (aside from that he games on PC) and the other is a son of a huge Nintendo collector and loves Nintendo himself. Do I hate these two? No of course not, I don't care about their gaming preferences and sometimes *gasp* play Nintendo games with them.

Doesn't mean I can't be harsh on Nintendo from time to time.

Prediction: The PS4 will outsell the Wii U and 3DS combined

Apparently I won my bet with prinz_valium

lol the real option isn't even on there

Most Brutal was PS2 vs Dreamcast, Sony killed off Sega as a hardware manufacturer, and they managed to do it before the other 2 contenders for that generation could even launch.
