For the 1st time in 30 years, this is not an easy answer for me. With NES, SNES, PS1, PS2, and PS3, I never had any doubt which console was my favorite during their respective generation. This time around though, no one console has lead the pack the same way for me. It really comes down to PS4 vs XBO.

If I had to choose, I would give the edge to PS4, but only because of PSVR. PS4 has had a few amazing games, but the overall library falls quite a bit short of previous PlayStations for my taste. Too few of titles, with too little variety for my taste. Sony has also stumbled with PS+, which I thought was going to do wonders to help improve PSN and imrpove the UI, but has turned to just be a money sink, with actually less improvements to PSN and the UI compaired to what we saw with PS3 with free PSN.

Xbox comes in a very close 2nd for me, but the lack of VR and the drought of big exclusives late in the gen have dimenished the gains made in XBLG/Game Pass and the UI. At the beggining of this generation the XBO UI was down right terrible, however, they have continued to improve it month after month, and at this time, I greatly prefer it over the PS4 UI. I have also found a lot of enjoyment in Microsofts more wider variety of exclusives, with some highlights being Sunset Overdrive, Cup Head, Crackdown 3, Forza Horizon 4, and Halo 5.

Switch is easily my least favorite of the current consoles on offer. It is my favorite Nintendo in roughly 20 years, but compairing it to the PS4/XBO and the PS Vita, it is a very hollow device, with a lack of exclusives that excite me. As great as some of the exclusives like Zelda Breath of the Wild, Mario Odyssey, and Smash Bros. Ultimate are, the rest of the system feels like something from the mid 2000's. As someone who has had access to PS4 games via Remote Play on Vita since well before Switch launched, the 3rd party offerings don't offer any additional appeal to the system. The lack of even essential gaming features like 3G/4G, Voice/Text Chat, and a Web Browser, along with no mutlimedia features make the Switch my least used device by far.

Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
