    I already have a Wii U but I have been going through my back catalog of games catching up on everything on PS3 and Wii. Currently still going through Xenoblade Chronicles (160+ hours in). Despite what problems people have about the Wii U or second screen gaming, I'm really liking it. I've been playing Xenoblade more on my gamepad screen than my TV. The image is much sharper because it's closer to the native resolution.

    PC's the way to go! I'm not going next gen for a while. I've got an awesome PC (that I already spent a bunch of money on) that will play games with PS4 graphics and I've got a couple wireless 360 controllers for it. I mean most of the important releases now also release on PC (which is great) and on PC you've got a lot of options if your looking for a Playstation Network like home to download the latest games (Steam, Origin, Uplay, etc.) And since it's my PC I already have all the social stuff AND it's hooked up to my TV so.......I see no point right now

    My first console was an Atari 2600 in the early 80s. I did not pick up a console again until 2010 when I bought an Xbox 360. I have over 100 games now (can't walk into Gamestop without a responsible adult with me) between used games and the various Xbox live sales. I don't think I will need to worry about getting a next gen console anytime soon.

    I currently have 21 new and unplayed Xbox 360 games on my shelf, so I have plenty to keep me going for a couple of years at the rate I get through games. I'm also planning to pick up a cheap PS3 sometime, so I can play all the top exclusive games for it. So I can put off going Next Gen for at least three years. Hopefully by that time, Sony will have released a Slim edition of the PS4, as it's an ugly beast at the moment, and M$ are getting no more of my money. I just don't trust that company anymore.

    If, like me, you are a gamer who loves games full of great story-telling, colorful imagination, and good, FUN gameplay, now is the time to be using Playstation Plus and Steam. Between Steam Sales, GOG, PS+ and Humble Bundles, it costs almost nothing to a an ENORMOUS stream of fun, quirky, endlessly-playable games. Let everyone else chase after more realistic blood and gore and auto paint jobs. I'll be playing games that make me feel good and cost almost nothing. Will I get a PS4? Yeah, probably someday...when I need a new Blu Ray player...
  • ben-sankbeil - December 4, 2013 2:12 p.m.

    That is how I feel. the only thing is, steam doesnt agree with the last system we had and it broke our old computer..(granted it ran like windows 5 or something like that...I cant remember)
  • jedisamurai - December 4, 2013 4:05 p.m.

    Steam does indeed have its issues. I've seen numerous crashes/bugs/reinstalls. However... If you are running a fairly modern (multi-core, multi-gigs of ram) PC, the newest version is more stable. And if it starts acting up there are simply instructions to be found on Google etc on how to reset it (copy the steamapps folder and steam.exe to a new folder and open steam.exe, Steam will reintall/reconfigure itself). I'll take Steam, which automatically Cloud-syncs game saves, over any other way of playing games on a PC. The feeling of opening To the Moon after have to completely reinstall Steam and re-download all my games, only to find that it picked up right where i left off...was priceless. If you play games on a PC, I consider having to occasionally re-install a fact of life. At least with Steam you don't have to worry about making backups of your saves. I hope if/when I get a new rig I don't have any issues getting it to run...

    Man, Steam has been great for me lately. The issue I face mentioned in this article is too many unfinished games, and Steam is partially to blame here! :P Just finished To the Moon recently, in fact
  • EAC73 - December 4, 2013 10:17 a.m.

    I still have Deadly Premonition in my unfinished games, I really want to finish it, but I just get distracted by games like a Dota 2 or CS:GO, where I can pick up a couple of rounds, unlike Deadly Premonition, where I like to play it for a good 3 or 4 hours before stopping.
  • TheMariner - December 4, 2013 9:06 a.m.

    I do have quite a few unfinished games from this gen. Heck, I still have to finish Baten Kaitos on my Gamecube. Then again, I'm not too worried about missing out on next-gen titles because I'll get most any multi-plat on PC. That, and Tales of Symphonia Chronicles, Tales of Xillia 2, and Persona 5 will keep my PS3 happy for quite some time once they come out.
  • MrJP - December 4, 2013 9:47 a.m.

    Go back and finish playing Baten Kaitos, the card based battle system becomes really intuitive (if you stick with it) and the scenery and music are completely enchanting!
  • HolyCripesOnToast - December 26, 2013 8:04 p.m.

    I love my 360, but PC gaming is the way to go!
  • Craza - December 4, 2013 9:02 a.m.

    The games that take the longest for me to finish are the ones that aren't necessarily bad, but tedious or just have those slight few annoyances that I always remember whenever I think about going back to play that game. "Ahhhhh, man, I should really finish Dragon Age." My Brain - "Yah, but remember how the combat system was entirely different than what you thought it was and the game is really long?" "Oh, yah." Hmn...how about Tales of Symphonia? I got all the way to Disc 2 on that one." My Brain - "Yaaaah, but remember how you got stuck in that one area in a boss battle where you were 15 levels below the boss with no hope of ever beating him and no way to grind levels so you CAN beat him, therefore, you'll have to start the whooooole game over again and then you'll realize that those quirky JRPG stories and characters you loved as a pre-teen are now really cliche and cringe-worthy?" "I...*sigh*...yah, I remember." "What about Okami?" My Brain - "Don't you even dare bring Okami up." "Okay, okay! Jeez....guess I'm getting hooked on another MMO then..."
  • gadjo - December 4, 2013 10:25 a.m.

    That's something that always annoyed the living hell out of me in Tales games: no skipping cut scenes. I enjoy the gameplay, but the story often drones on and on with too much reaction dialog. Also the characters have that obnoxious anime quality of being rock stupid and falling for obvious traps and requiring explanation for numerous basic things.
  • ben-sankbeil - December 4, 2013 2:21 p.m.

    well that is because it is based off of anime. anime is good but the people making it need to be more subtle and creative with their traps. or at least make the characters smarter and have them use the traps against their enemies.
  • Sjoeki - December 4, 2013 8:15 a.m.

    Games that are in my unfinished pile are the games I shouldn't have bought, some of them might be favorites of other gamers but I couldn't get into them. If I start a game and after half an hour I'm wondering if there is something on the tv, then I know that game is probably going to end up in the unfinished pile. Not that much of a trophy hunter, I'll go through the list and see if there are fun trophies on there and I will do those but I'm not going hunting through liberty city capping pidgeons in the ass for a trophy. But it is not like there arent games coming out for the PS3 or Xbox 360 anymore, so I don't have a problem waiting till spring or summer to pick up my first next gen console.
  • BladedFalcon - December 4, 2013 7:33 a.m.

    I actually don't have a lot of unfinished games, because when I tackle a game, I either finish it before moving to someone else, or if I didn't like it, I dump it and never touch it again. That being said, I have a huge stack of games I have yet to play, so that's gonna keep me busy for a long ass time.
  • mafyooz - December 4, 2013 7:07 a.m.

    I've got a few games in the "unfinished" pile, and by the time I get through those Dark Souls 2 will be out, so that'll keep me occupied for a good while before I even think of getting a new system. By then any kinks should be worked out and there should be a better catalogue of games available too :)
  • Svantus - December 4, 2013 6:29 a.m.

    For anyone using a recent Nvidia card(PC..sorry, console dudes) and the Experience app, there's ShadowPlay for recording. I've had no problem getting lag-free HD footage and I'm a noob when it comes to this stuff.
