There are so many options available to gamers these days. They have the option to choose from among 6 consoles and 3 handhelds. They can also find all the latest titles on PC.

Make sure that you are reading and asking the ones who like the games which you have liked in the past. Reading the reviews will let you know more about the game. Most of the games give out a free playable demo before they are launched. You can also try that to know what the game is going to offer.
