I'd give it a 6.5 so far! Which is good, because we're still in the early years :)

I gave 7, lots of great games to play but not a lot variety in terms of big budget AAA titles. looking for more Adventure/Platformers/RPGs. But thats normal.

At this point in its life all 360 had as defining titles was Gears and Oblivion. Uncharted for the PS3 where 1st party is concerned and even then I think the original was overrated. Third parties didn't come out in force with defining experiences til second half of 2007 (COD, Bioshock, Assassins Creed, Mass Effect) and going by the 360's life (as the PS3 was actually delayed/late) that means this gens equivalent in timing is second half of 2015. We've got games like Witcher 3, Batman and Starwars, but we need more new IPs to really set this gen apart IMO.

Wii/PS2/gamecube/Dreamcast/Xbox all had much better starts but all died but were all dead by the 5 year point, PS2 by the 6th year.


pretty mediocre gen to be honest. The only reason it's not a 3 or something is because Wii U. PS4 and Xbox One seem to have a lot of over hyped but disappointing games.

4/10. Almost nothing interesting, everything seems broken and/or underwhelming. It's the first time in my gaming life that I haven't thought "It's a great time to be a gamer." In fact it seems like a pretty shitty time to be a gamer to me.

Currently playing:

Bloodbath Paddy Wagon Ultra 9

7/10 based on all platforms. 8.5 based on my main (PC). I expect a 8/10 for all platforms by years end and 9/10 by the end of 2016. I don't get the negative hype at all.

I predict that the Wii U will sell a total of 18 million units in its lifetime. 

The NX will be a 900p machine

Nothing but failed hype, delays, remasters, and disappointments.

One of the worst console gens ever so far.

Quite a few disappointments already early in the gen along with recently more games being delayed. 2015 is looking like it will be better by the end of the year and 2016 is shaping up to be good which is great. There's a few games out which have caught my eye (Smash, Bayonetta 2, Sunset Overdrive, Bloodborne) but overall I feel like I could have waited until late this year or 2016 until I really felt like I had to own a new console. Handhelds have been pretty decent though, lots to play on there and I've been pretty satisfied.

8/10, a lot of great small games, very few great AAA games but still the ones like Resogun or Helldivers made me play for hours and hours over weeks and months.




The gen just started. It's got another 5 years to go at least. 3DS is the only system even close to being retired (unless you count the Vita, which doesn't look like it will ever be 'officially' retired by Sony), and it's pretty great, but I still wouldn't give it a rating as it still has a year and a half left for sure, possibly longer.
