Saints Row is the game that decided to out-ridiculous Grand Theft Auto, and since 2006 it has been providing players with an over-the-top gameplay experience that mimics the open world sandbox of GTA, while adding a ton of tongue-in-cheek humor and oddities. For instance, you can go streaking in the game and if you shock enough people, you’ll gain experience. Sadly, that just doesn’t work in real life, or I would have had some extra credit in college. But with each of the three successive games, the series has gotten stranger and stranger. You play as the leader of the Third Street Saints, a gang out the Chicago/Detroit inspired city of Stilwater. Despite the extremely high body count you have racked up in previous games, you’re now the President of the United States, and Keith David (yes, that Keith David) plays himself, and serves as your Vice President. Which is meta in itself, as David also voiced Julius Little in the first two Saints games, original founder of the Saints.

It’s hard to navigate social media without running into one rant or another either praising one to the high heavens or proclaiming the other as a certain catalyst for the apocalypse. And even if you’re not a gamer, this should interest you to some degree. The Xbox 360 and PS3 competed for living room supremacy, both wanting to be the center of your TV watching world. PS3 had the distinction of being the first Blu-ray player released in North America after the delay of Sony’s flagship standalone player the BDP-S1. In fact, it’s Blu-ray and DVD playback capability drew movie lovers in from the start. The 360 tried to get in on this game with an HD-DVD add on drive, and did moderately well with it until Blu-ray came out on top in the format war. Xbox turned to streaming and locked up an exclusive deal with Netflix to offer it’s instant streaming service through the Xbox 360. This forever changed the way we think about consoles. Now we stand on the precipice, with new versions of the Playstation and the Xbox, dubbed PS4 and Xbox One respectively, both due to hit the market later this year. But which one should you choose and why? Allow us to break it down for you.
