Okay so I’m a 90s baby all the way and although I wasn’t an actual Xbox owner when Microsoft first release the gaming console. I was dwindling away from my Gameboy advance around the time if I remember correctly.
I learned at a very young age that sport games like NFL Blitz were my weak point and I excelled at 1st & 3rd person shooter games. So naturally my first Xbox crush was Halo. Don’t get me wrong I loved True Crimes & Grand theft auto but I preferred games with a stricter story plot.
I remember I used to stay up all night, when I did “acquire” an Xbox; playing Halo until I would here my Grandmother getting up. Sneak back into my room and act like I was sleep. (My kids gone be sneaky af🙄)
Anyways enough of the flash back…
First off this new age shit got me feeling old as hell. So apparently you can just download games straight to your console, which is awesome yet shitty. Microsoft customer service almost got cussed all the way out.
I have been a committed Team Xbox supporter, minus the brief period in 2014 when I had a PlayStation 2. Yes, Microsoft basically says “Fuck you” to it’s user by making them pay for online gameplay features. But sorry Sony , graphics, online gameplay, and joystick layout is more speed. And c’mon…. Halo.
But now that I’m adulting and shit, I have to think long term and expense. Do I really want another monthly bill? Did they really solve the red circle of death issue or did they just get rid of the circle? Am I really going to be playing online like that?🤔 All questions that led to my original decision of biting the bullet and getting a PlayStation. We all know Microsoft loves bundles. Once I saw “Master Chief Collection” I felt my spirit leave and re-enter my body. So the choice was clear.
I totally felt like an old timer when I was expecting to see an A. Halo graphics on the actual console. & B. Actual Halo game cases. All the set up and whatnot need internet access, which a complete 3 day headache that I will save for a later date to vent about.
I am still overall pleased with my choice of gaming console & I am still officially Team Xbox (I am still coppin a PlayStation 4 eventually).
