I didn't say Nintendo games were, nor did I say there weren't plenty of ps games I'd be interested in playing. I just have never owned a PlayStation nor plan to at this point (I own Nintendo platforms and gaming PC).
I know you didn't say Nintendo games are.
The strange part is you saying you love the genre and type of game, but not having the platform that is mostly focused on them.
Why so hostile? I figured your original post as a joke...but it seems you were serious?
You do know he is hostile against Playstation in general right?
For me it is strange to hate so much the company that does the type of game you love.
I don't hate Nintendo, but since their type of game isn't the type I prefer although I have the HW and some games I don't focus on it at all. But wouldn't you find hard to understand if I said I love platforming games, gameplay driven without much story, but have never owned any Nintendo console or played any of their games? How can you love something and not even trying what is considered the best when it is well within your powers to do so? Similarly if Multiplayer or shooting games where my favorite I would be closely attached to Microsoft.
1. He cannot be that much against them. I mean, he got a PS5 afterall. I can say this however, as someone who has had a PS2, PS3, and PS4 (till 2017) as their primary console...and even been widely known as a "Pony" by some for over a decade...due to how toxic and arrogant a certain part of the fanbase was within the 8th generation, I was pegged as a drone and more recently a bot simply because I have a habbit to speak against said toxic part of the Sony fanbase. In fact, I remember when someone accused me on this very site of not having a PS4 and my PSN ID in my profile must have been a friends and not really mine, because there was "no way someone could prefer Nintendo games over PS if they actually had both."
DISCLAIMER, I am not directing this as an insult to ANYONE, just saying that during gen 8 the most toxic part of a fanbase became very loud, and this does not apply to every (or even most) Sony fans. I am simply saying that things are not black and white, and your perception of people can easily be skewed by perspective.
2. In the wake of quite a few Sony games going to PC, and the OP does have a PC I believe, it would not be a stretch to think they played a few of the PC ports, liked them, then decided to buy the console that is known for those types of game.
3. Much like the above point, games from the cinematic genre do exist on Switch (such as life is strange), PC, and XBox. If this was a recent revelation through these points, is he not allowed to claim that this preference now exists just because he did not own the console they are known to be on? Can someone who is on PS or Switch not enjoy games like Fortnite or Call of Duty because they don't have an XBox?
