Forums - Microsoft Discussion - I used to be an Xbox hater

You have a similar story to mine. I was a Nintendo fanboy going back to the NES i got for my 8th Bday. Than the SNES and than the N64 which was the bread and Butter for me. Rare and Nintendo to me were the principle of gaming.

I also own a PS1 which i loved FF7 and Crash Series and Driver however i started slowly getting into PC gaming and consoles to me stopped being relevant. I did not buy a Gamecube, Dreamcast, PS2 and Xbox. It was until Halo 3 that sparked my interests. I am a huge fan of Sci-Fi and shooters, Dense Stories and great music and Halo offered everything.
I went back to play Halo 1 and 2 again thanks to the 360 BC and since than i called my Xboxes the Halo Box.

Absolutely adored the original xbox, I saw what it was capable of and bought one immediately. Fantastic console which I still have under my tv today. Admittedly now its got a 2TB hdd with all my favourite xbox games and emulated games on it. First console with proper 5.1 sound. Graphically weak today but still find the graphics acceptable on quite a few games. I like that generation of consoles anyway. I was a big fan of Dreamcast and Gamecube too. Probably my favourite console generation.

In contrast I truly hate the windows operating system, absolute garbage and bloatware of zero value. Sucks the power out of hardware and leads to much time wasted sorting out its problems.

When I first heard Microsoft was making a console I got angry because they were trying to compete with Dreamcast ,PS2, and Gamecube I wanted microsoft to go away real bad . I used to be more of a Sony fan moreso and I actually wanted Sony to win every gen since PS1 years . I think it either was 2005 or 2004 I enter after school gaming tournaments. In some class after school ended people brought Fighters or Shooting games depending what game was gonna be played that day and everyone payed 5 dollars or more If they think they were gonna win in that game winner gets the pot money . So one day people brought Halo Combat Evolved I still hated Microsoft but I never seen an xbox before I joined anyways played Halo multiplayer and loved it the multiplayer was funner than 007 goldeneye on n64 . I was hooked I bought an xbox in 2005 I think and played some games but I still hated Microsoft by the year 2010 I started to loosen my hatred then I played my brothers xbox 360 I loved It again I played halo 3 online I loved it from then on I started to love Microsoft more than Sony because of Halo series the years past and even though Halo 4 underperformed I'm still into Microsoft though I no longer play Halo 3 because I'm currently playing fighters and am more into online fighting specificly Tekken 7 Though I have proof of me playing Halo 3 my old gamertag is dx11332 though my new gamertag is dx11332sega and that one has me not playing much. Though I just got an Xbox One X and I'm unsure If I wanna play Halo 5 since I gotten worse in FPS . Right now I love all consoles and hopin It stays that way .

I think its gay to hate an electronic.


Oh and fanboyism is even gayer!  To admit your a fanboy is one of the worst things you can do. Glad you finally grew up and love all electronic plastic's equally!

I don't hate Xbox at all.  I just hate Microsoft.

Should never really be too angry about any company joining in creating a new device for a hobby you have, it just means more choice and in most cases more competition, and competition drives the ones we currently enjoy to do more to keep onto their customers, so it's win / win for us.

When I was a kid, I got angry at Sony for daring to challenge Nintendo.  I got especially disgruntled over that infamous FF7 magazine ad.  Little did I know that the PS1 would become my favorite console of all time.

Lesson learned.

I used to not dislike any game company. Not Nintendo, not Sega, not Sony, not SNK, NEC or anyone else, never. I had many game systems, good Hardware with healthy videogame philosophy incorporated. Then Microsoft came along...

Hunting Season is done...

to op: I used to hate on the PS3 from like 2010-2013, cause of console warrzz.  While I dont do that anymore, I still insist that PS3 is a shitty console (unpopular opinion, I know). And for the record, my favourite console of all time is the PS2.

Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Never hated any console maker.... but times are tough.

XB: Loved it, best MS console for sure.
360: It was okay, but had lots of issues HW wise and SW wise.
XB1: Didn't buy, too expensive.

Hating is such a strong word. I don't like the X-box, I'm not too crazy about the Switch but I don't hate them, I just don't like them enough to buy them and that's all. Hating a system makes no sense, unless the big boss of that system killed your family or something

I didn't realise this was your topic.


anyhow, the thread is just random considering the OP hasnt hated Xbox since 2010.... that was 8 years ago.

But its good the OP doesnt hate Xbox anymore. its a pretty weird stance to have had in the first place.

I do not hate the Xbox division per say, but Microsoft ain't helping themselves since the beginning of the 8th generation.

The XboneX was their best move, but that's it personally.

Anyway, you probably could have just shorted your brick with "I'm neutral"
