So my Xbox has red ringed. This is two that I've gone through now. So in the time between it dying and my replacement unit's arrival, I've focused my gaming towards my PS3. Now, I've been a PS3 hater with everyone else. I'd ask my self why do I even have one? My dad used it as a Blu-Ray player, I occasionally used it to play Street Fighter Anniversary Collection. Then Metal Gear 4 came out, and I played it like it was my first time ever playing video games ever. But yeah, back on to my main train of thought. I've been playing games on my PS3 a lot more now. Which means I've gone out and purchased a few games to tie me over. And I got to realizing that the only reason I don't really "enjoy" my PS3 is because all the games that are on it are also on the Xbox. So why would I only play games exclusively on my Xbox? I did some thinking and realized that it was because of those goddamn achievement points. It made playing games that much more fun for me. So I've come to a conclusion. I need to play games for the sake of enjoying them, not because they will give me nerd points. So my new plan, my new lease on gaming, is to try and make my PS3 my main gaming system, so that I can "enjoy" games for what they really are and not worry about "throwing x amount of dudes y amount of times for z amount of points". I'm really thinking the only games that will be purchased for my Xbox will be the Xbox Live Multiplayer games that my friends have/will have so that I can play with them. Otherwise, my PS3 will be my main pal.
If anyone reads this please let me know if it sounds like I'm hitting a target here. Or if perhaps I'm just an annoyed Xbox gamer with a RROD on their hands.
