2000s (at least for me). My first decade into gaming, but also one full of new franchises. Mass Effect, Battlefield, Halo, COD, Fallout (into the 3d), Uncharted (yes, I use to have a PS3 :)), Bioshock, Super Mario Galaxy, and many more.
Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).
