Poll: How many people here are manticores? (72 votes)

Yes. 69%
No. 31%

Meaning you own all the consoles or just care about the games and not about the brand. People always calling each other here a cow or sheep. Do you have a preference? I personally don't though I play the PS4 the most due to VR and the misses (sims) I've got the base of all.

PC is a 1060 6gb / r5 1400.

I used to have all the systems this gen.

I got rid of one though because it became redundant.

I don't own a Switch but I bought a Wii U in 2017. I have a PS4, Xb1 and gaming laptop.

Used to be a bit of a PS fanboy, but now I've grown up and realize none of the companies care about anything other then their bottom line at the end of the day. Although I will say Nintendo does annoy me more then Sony and MS

I don't seem to hold anything objectively superior due to my uses and own a system from almost all ends except Nintendo.

I have all 3 consoles and a very good PC gaming rig. I just like to play games when I have free time

Not entirely convinced it's worth owning all current gaming systems anymore.

If you have a PC, you don't need an Xbox and there aren't a huge amount of games different from each other anymore.

For the first time, as a previous console only gamer, I'm completely comfortable with just the PC now.

Other then my current gaming PC, I currently own PS4/Switch in the master room, I used to keep my Xbox One in the room until I decided ended up and giving it to my daughter and set it up in her room. The fact Xbox One is in my house, I guess you could say I do in fact own all current-gen consoles.

Truth be told, I used to consider myself a Manticore but over the years, I have mean more towards PC & PS4 for gaming purpose and the fact MS now ports their games on PC, no point in me giving a damn about keeping Xbox One in the room and I'm devoted to PC gaming more then ever, everyone in SW just views me a Hermit now. (Not that I really care what everyone calls me, Hermit, Cow, doesn't matter to me)

Edit: Voted Yes only because I do in fact own an Xbox One in the house after all.

100% this. Wasted six or so months trying to convince myself I do not need a rig anymore.

This. Consoles are redundant and a waste of money for me. I just wish I could play all games on PC. Having to buy a console just to play exclusives is such a waste.

I typically get the three major consoles per gen. Currently I have an Xbox One and a Nintendo Switch. I’ll definitely get a PS4 sometime in the future though. I can’t really call myself a manticore though because I have no interest in gaming on a PC.

I guess I'm a manticore, even though I make fun of my Xbox all the time. Are there labels for people who support only two platforms?

You can be a manticore and still participate in all the reindeer games. It's not like owning them all makes you less a fanboy, for me, it only made me worst.

Don't have it all but I never call people cow, sheep or lems.

I do prefer Sony but I'm not really against MS and Nintendo.

I'm disqualified from being a manticore though as I do have brand preference and don't all own system.

I suppose the 7th gen had a lot of games not on the PC and only on consoles. But for me, the idea of owning all the consoles hasn't been exciting since the 5th and 6th gen.

It must have been amazing to own a Saturn, Playstation and N64.

As a 360 owner, I came so close to buying a PS3 as well on a few occasions, but when it came down to exclusives, there was only a handful of games not on the Xbox I wanted. Just wasn't worth it to me.

I'm only really sometimes interested in the Switch right now. I got rid of my Xbox One the day after E3 2016 when M$ declared the end of exclusives.

@HalcyonScarlet: it's not. I own them all and Xbox one only gets touched when there's nothing left to play and there's a new GP game and the misses wants the PC. I don't really touch the switch. There are games I want but they never go down in price.

Aussie right? Nintendo makes it even harder to purchase any consoles due to lack of sales and barely lowering their prices.

@davillain-: yeah I am. It sucks, the switch would be a lot more popular here if it did. Most of my kids friends don't own a switch at all.

Noticed that with Nintendo. The Wii U shop is set up to be awesome, but the prices mostly suck imo. Never really come down. Nintendo are missing out on an opportunity I think.

Got a PC and Switch. I've been called Xbox fanboy. Probably because I'm pretty negative towards Sony. Or something. I couldn't care less about all this shit. Call me what you want. I just play where the games I'm interested in are, and PC + Switch has everything I currently want.

I honestly am the opposite. I pretty much have every console ever made (still need a philips cd-i), and my gaming pc really doesn't get touched anymore.

A manticore? Combat 3 defense 6 magic resistance of *8* flying move of 5 and even a little ranged attack to boot. Best mount in the game and at base 40% cast, i'd argue the best creature summon, period. Don't want to derail the thread but massive props if anyone can name the game!

On topic, no I'm just interested in PS4 as thats all I own for gaming. Guess I'm more a gryphon (combat 3 defense 5). And you'd better not Disbelieve it!! ;) ;)

That would be me. I play all 3rd party on Xbox One X, exclusives on PS4 Pro, Switch for exclusives/mobility, and PC for MMORPGs. I know that it is important to have competition and love all of the consoles currently out. I do not like fanboys and think they only hurt gaming.

I have them all.

Doesn’t mean I don’t have favorites but I don’t play the fanboy game.

Contrary to popular belief I’ve said positives about all the systems when I felt they were getting unfair criticism.

I voted yes since I've owned all consoles multiple times and have sold them multiple times through this console generation. Gave the Switch to my girl a while back and I am 100% PC. Been taking a break though from PC gaming; been messing around with Days Gone a bit but mainly just been relaxing and enjoying life while throwing some work in the mix...lol.

Might get back into PC gaming after the summer. Do some minor upgrades if need be.

As for the brand loyalty; could care less. I tend to lean slightly more towards Microsoft as I have viewed them as the losers this console race but can appreciate a good game; regardless of platform and can differentiate the pros and cons of each company.
