Opinions on this Gaming generation

I've recently watched a rant on Youtube explaining how this may be the worst console generation(WARNING, STRONG LANGUAGE)-



Now I normally don't talk about rants here, but this guy makes a lot of great points, especially regarding things like DLC, lack of variety, online only games, region locking, problems with the big 3+ other companies, etc.

Do you think this is the worst console? Do you disagree with this guy

I don't think it's the worse by far. I mean yeah, region locking sucks, but lack of DLC? I think that's a bit of a desperate point. There's so many games that are masterpieces this generation. Fallout, Bioshock, Elder Scrolls, Uncharted, just to name a few off the top of my head.

It's far more corporate than it used to be, but I'm not in the line of thinking that this is the worst console generation. Quite frankly, I could rant with counterarguments just as easily. Ya know, if I really wanted attention.

I really hoped this guy would've had a transcript. I would've loved to read all this instead of listening to it all. It makes it so much harder to dissect what this guy is talking about without the transcript. Granted, you posted a brief summary of it, but he covers so many points.

I agree with him on the $60 thing...I remember when this generation first debuted, that actually played a part in my decision to not get a 360 for a couple of years. It's only $10 more dollars, but it really adds up over time.

26 minutes long? no thanks.

this generation is worse for the poor folk.. with game prices being raised, xbl, online passes, etc.
rich people don't really have a problem, but if they were smart and cared about their money, they would care about these prices too.

Damn, this guy makes some very good/angry points about this generation.
It's not the worst generation, but it certainly isn't the best.
Just like AotA, it has it's flaws.
