I need to look into those videos to see if my fears goes away. Also being able to tweak settings on games like in PC without going through the hazzle of building one is also a huge plus for me. And the best part for me is that the games are native instead of streaming. I think by christmas I am getting one. plenty of time to decide.
We are in the same boat. I have no experience either. Based on talking with folks here and watching a few videos, seems super easy. If you would like, once I get my Deck, I can feedback the level of difficulty. I'm giving it a go with zero previous experience.
