PUBG runs like trash on Xbox. I don't imagine it'd run much better on PS4. As someone who games on PC and PS4, I much prefer games that look good and play well. I'll play my PUBG on PC where it belongs, thanks. Sidenote: If you want the PUBG experience but with playable framerates, Fortnite is a much better choice.

Wrong. Wrong. WRONG.
My fiancee is just as big of a gamer as I am. We play most of the same games, but we each have genres and games we prefer. I mostly play FPS and open world games. She also plays those, but gravitates towards turn-based RPGs and hack and slash games (she loves the Dynasty Warriors series and most recently put a lot of time into Persona 5). I got her into Fallout with Fallout 4. She got the Platinum and beat all the DLC. I still haven't finished the main quest. :/ Otakon just happened and she spent months making a costume so she could cosplay as Pharah from Overwatch. She has also cosplayed as Delsin Rowe from inFamous: Second Son.
One of her favorite series is Borderlands. I got her into Saints Row 4 and GTAV. She really liked them. Still trying to get her to play BioShock and Portal 2. I tried to get her to play Uncharted. She played most of the first game and stopped. Then, she got Uncharted 4...and has NEVER touched the single player. She literally got Uncharted 4 just for the MP. She's weird sometimes. :P
I got her to try Bloodborne. She was actually pretty good at it, but it wasn't really her type of game. I got her to play Killing Floor 2 though and she likes it, so that's a plus.
I built my gaming PC about a year ago. She just got all the parts and we built hers about a month ago. She wanted to build it because she wanted to play Destiny 2 on PC (even though neither of us put that much time into the first game). We both play on PS4 and PC.
Killing Floor 2 is rad. I played 132 hours of the first game and around 95 hours of KF2 on PC. I'll download it and play it since I'm trying to get some friends into it, but it's one of those games that feels like it really loses something when played with a controller.
My problem is I buy more games than I can play. Now is currently a dry spell for me, since there's nothing new coming out for a while that I'm interested in so I can catch up on my backlog.
I find that after I finish a long single player game I want to play something less involved. I finished Horizon: Zero Dawn and got the Platinum. The last PS4 game I was playing before that was For Honor, but I haven't felt motivation to go back to it, so now I'm back on my PC playing a lot of Killing Floor 2 and occasionally Black Ops II. I just bought Dishonored 2 because it was on sale on Steam and literally just bought 2 more PC games (Playerunknown's Battlegrounds and White Noise 2, neither of which I've tried yet).
For me the ebb and flow is that I'll get addicted to a single player game, take my time with it, then once I've gotten everything I want out of that game I shut my brain off and just play multiplayer games for a while till the next thing grabs my attention. I get so invested in stories and worlds that it's nice to take a "casual" break and just focus on shooting people in the face.
I'm 33, and have been gaming since the original NES (played some of a friend's Atari 2600 around the same time as well). I owned an NES, SNES, and N64.
After that, I fell out of love with gaming. I bought a Gamecube, but was working full time and never played it. When I did, it was just for short runs. It didn't interest me anymore. So I stopped playing. I didn't pick up a controller again until gaming had long since entered dual-analog. A friend had a PS3 and I watched them play the demo for the first Uncharted. I thought, "This is what games are like now?! This is awesome!" I was already gonna get an HDTV and a Blu-Ray player, so I bought a PS3.
I had to learn how to play dual-analog games (which was a completely foreign concept at the time) and started anew. Been going strong ever since. I now have a PS3 and PS4 with probably 50-100 games each and around 200 or so games on Steam (started PC gaming about 4-5 years ago). The truth is, sometimes, it's just you. You get burned out on things. Especially if you have no other hobbies. Me? I also love movies, shows, and I'm a musician that also records at home. Occasionally, I do video editing and graphic design.
If gaming is your only outlet and you don't have other hobbies or distractions you're bound to get burned out or feel like it sucks sooner than later. As they say, everything in moderation.
I'm of the opinion that gaming is better now than ever. The wealth of options both in terms of games and in terms of how you acquire them whether retail, digital, or even mobile, means that you can tailor your gaming experience to your needs. Sometimes people want to game but they'd rather play a simple indie game or phone game than a huge sprawling 100+ hour RPG on console or PC. That doesn't make you a bad gamer or mean the games are bad. Just that you need something else right now.
The best thing you can do with any hobby or interest is know when you need a break from it so you don't end up hating it.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Left 4 Dead
And I'm probably close on that if you add my console and PC time together on Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1, and Evolve.
1. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
2. Titanfall 2
3. Batman: Arkham Knight (2nd playthrough, Knightmare run for Platinum)
4. The Division
5. Battleborn (Story missions, if that counts?)
Those are all on PS4. I'm currently replaying Bloodborne to get the last trophy I need for Platinum (already got 100% on The Old Hunters DLC). In the last year I built a gaming PC, which takes up a lot of my time too. I've been on a multiplayer kick lately, which means no real sense of "progression" like finishing a single player game. I've started plenty of games this year like the new Dark Souls 3, DOOM, Watch_Dogs 2, Ori and the Blind Forest, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Mafia 3. I just haven't finished any of them. Add to that the fact that I never finished games like FarCry 4, Fallout 4, GTAV...
Outside of the games above, most of my time recently has been spent on MP games like Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, and Overwatch (on both PC and PS4 for all three).
The main games I plan to pick up this year are For Honor and Horizon: Zero Dawn. Hopefully that gives me a chance to catch up.
@kod: They still don't really know, theyre just guessing. They target advertising to try and dictate your purchases.
Actually, they do know. There's scientific research on this kind of stuff:
Actually, what I gather from that poll is that women who game split their interests fairly evenly between violent and non-violent games, whereas men overwhelming prefer violent games. Why so angry, gents? :P
I find it just as annoying that Witcher 3's DLC beat ALL of Dark Souls 3.
