By the time all is said and done, I think the venerable 360 may just overtake the PS1 and N64 to become my #3 fav system of all time.
During the many droughts of the Wii U and now the lack of appealing new Switch games in the first half of this year, it really has been my dependable backup; there are so many games I skipped on it during its heyday that I can now go back and grab for ridiculously cheap prices.
I just picked up Sonic Generations, Battlefield Hardline, and Witcher 2 in a "buy one get two free" deal; none of these games managed to compel a buy from me back when they came out at full price, but now they're like $4 altogether, the cost of a takeaway coffee, the value is insane.
The infamous RROD aside, I really feel the 360 is an underrated system. The controller is comfortable, the graphics hold up remarkably well for a system that released in 2005, most multi-platform games of its generation run better on it, and the sheer volume of worthwhile games on it is immense.
I feel like it doesn't get the recognition it deserves, so I thought I'd give it a shoutout for keeping me going through the tough times.
Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
