I’ve been a Playstation gamer all my life. I have every Playstation, 1-4, and I’ve been fine just sticking to Sony. I never had the need to get an Xbox….until now. I’m in a relationship with a Microsoft user (insert shudder here) and they have  convicted me to get an Xbox One. Sony, I swear, it’s not what it looks like.

As a Playstation gamer, there have been many thoughts going through my mind as I get used to this contraption known as the Xbox One, and I thought I would share some with you today.

So I don’t understand why they called them bumpers and triggers. I honestly still don’t know the difference. I will always know them as r1, r2 etc.

Why is the A button in the X button spot? And where is my triangle button? Why is this controller so different and bulky? I don’t think I can handle this. I will say, though, it has better battery life then the PS4 controllers… only because it uses AA batteries.

To be honest, the Xbox One is so chunky compared to the PS4. Like I had to carry that thing around in my duffle bag and I’m pretty sure I killed my back and shoulder. Thanks, Microsoft.

Also I just love all of the exclusives you have….I literally can’t stand Halo, and Quantum Break, the game that came with my Xbox, isn’t so good either. PS4 still has better exclusives right now.  

I remember people saying Xbox One had better graphics than PS4, but I literally see no difference whatsoever. Thanks, Microsoft.

I kicked off my flip flop and it accidently turned on my Xbox. The touch screen turn on is way too sensitive…..Thanks, Microsoft.

Actually, I love my Xbox One so far. It’s taking a lot to get used to, but I get to play a lot of games with my significant other and other friends that have the console. It’s really fun to have parties and just play Minecraft or Overwatch. I can’t decide with console I like better. Both have its perks. Playstation, I swear it’s not what it look like. I can love you both equally. I would say that if you’re thinking about getting an Xbox One anytime soon you should definitely wait until the slim comes out. It’s going to be cheaper, have an actual button instead of a touch sensitive button, and it’s not going to be as heavy. I mean, seriously, this thing weighs a ton.

I recently got Overwatch, and I’m so in love with it. It’s such a fun game to play by yourself or with friends. Blizzard really knocked it out of the park with this one. If you’re still unsure about the game, let me highlight the best things about Overwatch.

So, I know what you’re thinking: you aren’t good at first person shooters, so this game isn’t the game for you. I am someone who is awful at first person shooters. Though, in Overwatch, there’s so many different types of characters. It doesn’t really feel like a first person shooter at all. Sure the character I main happens to have a gun, but there are other characters who aren’t about shooting people. You can play as support characters, which are crucial to the team, or you can play as defense characters that are away from the action but still get kills. Characters I suggest for people who don’t like first person shooters are Mercy, Lucio, Symmetra, Hanzo, and Torbjörn.

Like first person shooters but you can’t aim that well? Soldier 76 is perfect for you. His ultimate is even designed for people who can’t aim. All you have to do is shoot in the general direction of a character. You might also like Junkrat seeing as he has a grenade launcher as his weapon. You don’t really have to aim at people, more like in the general direction people are at. You can also lay down traps which can help you get kills as well.

Want a game that is fun but challenging at the same time? Overwatch. That is literally Overwatch. Characters like Genji and Tracer are hard to master and it can be challenging going up against people who are good with those characters. Though, the game is still fun to play as you work together as a team and defeat the other players. It’s going to be frustrating at first but once you get good as a character, it’s going to be great. Not one game is going to be the same. That’s both fun and challenging. You always have to adapt to the situation at hand.

If anything convinces you to get the game it should be the cast of characters. They are all so unique and have their own story. Sure the story isn’t in the game all that much, all you truly get are some lines that some characters say to each other, but you can tell each character has a personality. You aren’t just playing as Soldier 76. You are playing as Soldier 76 who is way too old for this and he feels like he’s babysitting a bunch of brats. He says so many things during the battle that makes him more than Soldier 76. All these characters are so special. If you compare this to Team Fortress 2, you’re going to see that Overwatch has dynamic characters that just feel different than the ones in Team Fortress. I mean in Overwatch you can play a talking monkey name Winston and a spider lady, named Windowmaker, who snipes people. And all the characters are from different areas of the world. Pharah, a badass lady who flies in the air and shoots rockets, is Egyptian. Reinhardt, he’s a tank that hits people with a huge hammer, is german. Mercy, the team mom and angel healer, is Swiss. D.Va, a teenage gamer who has her own mech, is Korean. Reaper, an emo dead guy with a skull mask, is American. All these characters have so much too them.

From one person bad at first person shooters to another: get this game! You’ll love it, I guarantee it.
