    It's a mess, init?

    PC's now want to be consoles, consoles want to be tablets. Nintendo is shit, Sony's hardware is a joke (can't even output more gigaflops), MS announcing a new Kinect-centric console, Valve are closing the doors, Ouya is stealing hipster's money, Razer is releasing more over-priced shit no one will buy, and Nvidia want some action with a stupid controller with clip-on screen. And Bowie is over-rated.

    Better than ever. More choice, more sophistication, an indie market good as it ever was.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I think there's too much choice to be honest.

    Yep.

    Why do you hate change and/or freedom, sport?

    Looks fine to me. Turn off the Xstationboxs and get yourself a decent gaming PC.

    Fascist sport wants one console for all, that plays the same games, painted in a glorious red.

    Choice or gtfo!

    On a micro level it's all good. Whatever system you have there's fun games to play on it (unless you have a WiiU, but even then you're sense of delusion will make you think you're having fun so it's all good).

    I worry what with all these Android consoles, Steam Boxes, mini PCs etc, the waters are going to get further muddied and the PC market, that's getting back on its feet, will fade away again.

    The main problem at the minute is that I don't have enough time or money to play everything that I want to play.

    In the grand scheme of things I think that's probably quite a nice problem to have.

    While so much choice is good, you can't help but feel that not all these devices will succeed and something will give and send the market crashing down.

    I'm having the best time of my gaming life, but at the same time I fear for the future.

    The Wii U is truly awful.

    Other than that it's all good.

    You should be embarassed at posting pathetic inflammatory stuff like that. Mod Kalel would not approve.

    I have a massive backlog and not enough time to play the games I want.
    There are loads of interesting things on the horizon, the dominance of CoD AAAAAAAAA+++ shite is depressing but there's a lot to be positive about.

    I reckon the indy scene on PC will stay strong. It's getting easier and easier to make games that don't look too shabby with very small teams - even solo with the right tools. I'm not afraid for PC gaming.

    How can there be too much choice?

    You should be concerned at your love of Nintendo now reaching the point where it cannot be joked about. You're like my granddad with The Holocaust.

    Some think it's possible?

    People don't like choice, really. We're generally pretty shit at it as a species.

    I hate massive menus in restaurants. The WiiU being the chicken nugget and smiley faces meal.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Gaming only feels like it's in a bad way when I'm sitting at my desk at work and chatting about games on here.

    When I'm at home gaming, I'm just enjoying myself.

    My love is a mere shadow of it's former self actually, I miss the old days.
    What's your best Holocaust joke then?
