Something I've noticed more of over the last couple of years: an increased anxiety regarding video game performance. PC gamers have always discussed this, that's part and parcel of the experience: getting the best out of your gear and whatnot.
But with this generation of consoles we seem to be discussing it more and more. Does it matter to you?
I kind of empathise with it. Both the PS4 and the Xbox One are so similar in terms of their functionality and their performance, and most major releases are multi-platform. What else do we have to compare and contrast? Particularly if you're trying to decide which console to buy or want confirmation that you made the right choice.
So it's weird. These sorts of discussions become simultaneously relevant but totally irrelevant. Sometimes I'll watch comparison videos. Sometimes I'll think about those minor details. Sometimes I'll act like they matter, even when I know they don't.
Very strange indeed.
What's your take on it?
