No disrespect to the Weekend Confirmed team, but something's been grating on my mind for months now that I need to get off my chest.
I work in electronics retail, and every time you guys do the weekly bad console graphics pile-on, you remind me of my least favorite customer: The one who stands between two televisions of the same brand for 20 minutes, paralyzed with indecision over whether they should go with the second-to-top of line to save money, or shell out an extra $500-$1000 for the very best, not because they can tell the difference, but because they "know" that it's better. You know what I tell that customer? "You're not going to have both TVs sitting side by side in your living room. You're only going to have one, and if you're happy with the picture "TV A" is giving you, you're not going to be any less happy with it at home. But if you can't be satisfied with that, then pay the extra money and get "TV B"."
My point is, many gamers like myself are satisfied for the time being with what we're getting out of our consoles, even though we know that games generally look and run better on PCs. You've driven the point home several times that the PC version of multi-platform titles look better, week after week. But why do we need to obsess about it so much? Far Cry 3, Dishonored, and Sleeping Dogs were far, far from unplayable on consoles because they didn't run at 60fps on console, but one would think they were based on your collective griping about the aging consoles and the unusually long tail of this console generation. This is the gaming equivalent of a first-world problem. Please save the graphical gripes for games that have no excuse to look as bad as they do on any platform, such as Aliens: Colonial Marines instead of raining on the parade of gamers who would otherwise happy with the great experiences and great value that they are getting out of their current and hopefully future consoles.
