Pull the cartridge from the clam case, slam it in the console, turn it on.
And the games are so easy and fun to play.
On the other hand, the new consoles make it a real chore just to start up a game.
The pick-up-and-play dynamic is totally gone from this generation - especially if you're online.
This is exactly it. The PS4 has breathtaking graphics, and the games can be incredibly involved stories. But most of my gaming these days is in increments of 45 minutes or less. It's not even worth turning on the PS4 for that length of time. Genny FTW!
