    I find this funny because xbox 360 literally invented actual popamole with Gears of War.

    360 has the exclusive JRPGs of Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon.

    LO is considered a "hidden gem" and worth playing (I'm waiting for Xenia emulator to be capable of running it), and BD is considered extremely mediocre and average.

    All the Forzas and Gears shit are on PC, and Halo 3 and 4 (and Reach and ODST) are coming soon to PC. For multi-platform exclusives like Red Dead Redemption 1 then it plays best on 360 with extra MSAA and better shadows and texture detail and LoDs.

    TLDR Just wait for Xenia to get better.

    Honestly, what PS3 has to offer?

    Drakengard 3 (I love it but it's extreme niche title)
    Persona 5 (also on PS4)
    Demon's Souls (remaster on the way)
    (completely broken) Kratos for MK9
    GoW3/Ascension

    Shit like Last of Us, Uncharted, Resistance, Killzone, Infamous, Darkness etc. maybe fun for some codexers but still, they're just popamole so they shouldn't be coinsidered as anything worthwile.

    Plus, PS3 as a hardware feels pretty soulless, even comparing to original Xbox. I miss the times when consoles were free from PC-imitation crap.

    don't worry, streaming-only "consoles" where you rent "air time" to play a game are the future anyway. gaming doesn't have much time left before the "netflix of gaming!" completely kills it.

    There's honestly very little exclusive to either that I'd imagine PC focused gamers being compelled by. If you're into stuff like Lost Odyssey and Ratchet and Clank then surely you own consoles in general anyway. The only ones I ever remember envying were the sci-fi FPS games like Halo and Killzone, because I'm a sci-fi nut and like FPS, but I wouldn't want to play them on console anyway due to lack of keyboard and mouse control.

    I hope my interest in gaming will finally die before it happens.

    I'd really like to think I have the strength to stop gaming when that inevitably happens, but I was pretty passionate about not supporting DRM at one point and here I am with like 400 Steam games.

    I'm doing quite opposite, trying to analogize the digital life by buying pshysical copies, slowly avoiding emulation and switching to original hardware - if that won't resurrect my interesting in gaming than it's all over. Playing games bought on Steam or other e-shop feels somehow 'fake', their only advantage is low pricing on sales and that's all.

    I succeded doing the same with music, dropped almost entirely mp3/FLAC format, focused only on CD/MC collection.

    Just build a PC at this point and never worry about a console again.

    How would the focus on physical things ressurect your love for gaming, they are still the same whether on disc or not.

    poe 2 is still boring whether you play it off steam or off a blu-ray disc.

    It's not only about psychical media, the concept is wider: to recreate to conditions we used to play video game in the past. No Steam, no unlimited access to gaems, no half measures.

    I fucking loved the Xbox 360.

    The PS3's prob a better choice, but the 360 gave me some quality games, at dirt cheap prices (usually £5-£10 cheaper than PS3 titles back then) and to this day still runs fine (bought in 2009)

    The 360's my personal fave console since the 16-bit SNES/Megadrive era. Plug in & play, never online, very few buggy games, great selection of games at super-cheap prices too.

    Good times :)

    Also, Lost Odyssey is a great game. Probably the most well rounded traditional JRPG ever created. The PS3 has the better exclusives overall, but I didn't enjoy any of those games as much as Lost Odyssey.

    Blue Dragon is fairly wank though

    I don't have any love for discs at all. I still buy movies on disc because they look and sound much better, but I hate that I have to honestly. Disliking DRM for me has nothing to do with discs. If every game ever made released on GOG I'd be a happy camper.

    I can see where you're coming from and while I occasionally had the same urges to do as you do, there's a voice in the back of my head that tells me that you can't really go back. I could try to recreate all the outer circumstances, but what would be missing would be my old self. I'm just not the same person I was at the age when I discovered gaming, and I think trying to recreate all that, the whole environment would just make me realize more how much has changed.

    That said, I counterbalance my gaming habit with a lot of other hobbies, so I rarely lose my joy for it. I do have longer periods where I don't game or not much, but in the end I always circle back to it
