I was a PS4 hater since get go, but that isn't cause some lemming. I was all PS3 at beginning of this generation, and thought PS4 sucked cause PS3 was better, just as I thought my PS2 was better than the new PS3. I only really loved PS3 cause of the PS2/PS1 games. I got PS4 cause I love PS2 games, and The Last Guardian and Persona 5 were 1, 2 PS2 punches, I also knew greatness awaited in coming years, and years of backlog helped with initial purchase.
Since launch I have heard the rounds: (in chronological order)
-Better policies and keeping traditional gaming (i.e. no forced kinect/online only)
-PS4 played multiplats better than One
-PS4 has exclusives
-PS4 has better exclusives
I know those are basic things fanboys say, but what makes you love PlayStation? I never lost faith in PlayStation like I have Nintendo, but as much as I loved old days of Nintendo, I just haven't liked their new consoles, especially Switch. In some ways feeling PlayStation is slipping away, and wondering why I love or care about them today.
I don't like how Nintendo does business, don't like how they drip feed news, hate their short baking products to cause mania, and really don't like their philosophy of game making.
In many ways I feel the same with PlayStation. They announce shit too soon, now skipping the conference that I fell in love with PS4 at in first place and skipping E3, didn't like their way of showing new games with musical openings, and so Sony just isn't the Sony I use to like. I hate their censoring policies, don't like their anti-consumer way of doing things, like remastering or ps now instead of real BC. There is no handheld, not really into VR, and most my favorite franchises from yesteryear aren't on PS4 or multiplat. In general, I haven't liked their way of doing business.
So I've come to conclusion, I can own PS4 without being a fan. Just play the few games I want from it and leave it be, yet I thought I could do that with Switch and I sold it. Of course I didn't spend last 3 gens ignoring PS like I did Nintendo. Sony had nothing to prove, still, if I wasn't led to believe these exclusives are must play, and didn't have initial games I wanted, I'd have zero reasons for a PS4.
