I only bought the PS4 Pro because Sony told me to. Sure, I knew what 4K was, and I could spell HDR, but that was about it. My TV at the time was still merely “full” HD (a descriptor I’d since learn to be a vicious lie) and I always figured 30fps was about the best a console scrub could hope for.

So what exactly was the PS4 Pro for then? It wasn’t clear. It’s what was next. So I bought it.

Sometimes I wish I'd grown up with home consoles from Nintendo, SEGA or the PlayStation than the PCs and litany of abandonware I spent my youth exploring. It's not that the PC didn't have plenty of icons or wonderful games of its own, of course. But not having grown up with so many of the icons and heroes strewn across the early Nintendo/Xbox/PS1/PS2 eras makes me feel like I missed out on something.
