I still choose my xbox series x over the ps5 because the ps5 is frustrating to use for the start. But you guys can tell me what you think of my gaming consoles.

I have the Xbox series s. I traded my Xbox one in for it. I don't like disk readers on the Xboxs' they always have errors reading discs. I scratch every disk. The fact no cd drive and everything is pretty much streaming now.
I never bought a Playstation.
I bought a 2 gb hhd and it takes 12 seconds longer to load than the type x.
I also only play halo.

I'm more of a PlayStation user but one thing I do like about the Xbox Series X better is that I can play all the old Xbox games. I was disappointed the PS5 can't play all the old PlayStation games. But hopefully the new PS6 would solve that issue.

Atari consoles became popular when I was in junior high school in the late '70s, but we never had one in the house, so it was something I never really got into. The closest to a video game I ever had in that era was an electromechanical auto racing game where the track moved and the car I was 'driving' stayed stationary as I dodged obstacles and tried to get as far as I could in the allotted time. I was also too cheap to shove endless quarters into the arcade games, especially given the crude state of their graphics at the time. My cousins had a Magnavox Odyssey system, and I enjoyed playing on it when I was visiting them. The curious thing is that I would look at Atari consoles on display in the stores, and would mainly see untapped potential, as I would envision them being used as computers.

When I got my first computer, a Mac Classic, when I started graduate school in 1991, I found a couple of repositories of games on the university's network, some of which I found enjoyable, but the novelty wore off quickly. Even though computer and video game graphics have now caught up to where I would have liked them to be 40-odd years ago, that ship has apparently sailed without me.

We had an Atari 5200 back in the day. I think I still have it somewhere, in its original box.
But, somehow, I never really got bitten by the video game bug.
Strange, since everyone that I hung out with back then was big into them.
