“Viva PS4, viva. We don’t need Tomb Raider, we have Uncharted.”
You are a Sony fanboy for life, you believe in great gaming experiences, cheaper hardware, permanent exclusives, and Nathan Drake. You don’t need to dance around, waves your hand in the air, and scream commands at your TV. PS4 is the most powerful console and the rest of the world can suck it.

“Another Call of Duty and DLC first on Xbox One. Plus, the controller is the best.”
You love Xbox. It has never let you down, and you believe that timed DLC is the future. You rub Tomb Raider exclusivity in the faces of other gamers, and don’t need any other games as long as you have Halo.

“The Wii U is unmatched, and Mario 3D World is amazing.”
Nintendo is the greatest company in the world. Even though game releases have been slow, Pokemon, Mario Kart, and Zelda are titles that can sustain you forever. Visuals aren’t everything, it’s about the experience.

“PC is king. Long live the Mater Race.”
You look down on console peasants with disdain, and why wouldn’t you: gaming on a PC is just better. You may spend a bit too much money upgrading your rig, but it’s okay because Steam Sales fill your library for bottom dollar.
Close to 5
“I can play Candy Crush whenever I want to, I can also surf the web, and go on Facebook.”
You spend an inordinate amount of time on your phone and are always looking for new people to invite to Clash of Clans. You believe tablets are the way of the future. Don’t worry, MyGaming has you covered.
