Though it was trash hardware I think the PS4 was a pretty amazing console just on the strength of library. 360 was super impressive in the early gen though. Then Don Mattrick ruined the XBox name for years trying to steer it to casuals thinking he could recreate the success of the Wii.That is the first time I've ever heard someone say Xbox 360 ruined console gaming.
Xbox 360 is probably the last "great" console there was. Since then it's kind of been downhill IMO.
They also pioneered the way for a lot of the online "normals" we have now a days like digital store fronts, indie game access, online gaming and matchmaking, as well as other things like wireless controllers being standard, dashboards, storage, and then some.
The Xbox 360 was peak gaming time for me personally.
