Nail? Yeah, Head here...
The current generation of consoles (for that is what they still are) were incredibly shit for gamers. Red and yellow lights of death, paid subscriptions for basic services, endless updates, removal of features, online services spending months offline, shoehorned multiplayer, micro transactions, gimmicky bullshit control schemes, endless DLC, the death of nearly 100 great development houses and small publishers and the march of soulless cash grabbing sequels galore put pay to that. The 16 bit consoles were the last truly joyous era of gaming and everything since has slipped steadily down the shitter until we're where we're at right now. You can argue that the PS2 era was better, but it wasn't because the PS2 was practically the only console.
