Illustration for article titled We Asked E3 Attendees Which Consoles Theyd Hug, Marry, And Kill

I love asking questions almost as much as I love listening to answers. Two weeks ago at the 2017 Electronic Entertainment Expo (“E3"), I got to do both!


The last question I asked several dozen people is a “Hug, Marry, Kill” question. I say “Hug” because (I think) it’s funny.

Simply put, I asked people to assign Hug, Marry, or Kill to the Nintendo Switch, the PlayStation 4, and the Xbox One.


Their answers . . . had a clear trend. Watch the video to find out.

For fairness’s sake, we interviewed attendees in various locations, even right by the Microsoft booth.

What would my answer be? Well I think I would marry the Nintendo Switch, because I’ve known Mario for a long time. Then again, Mario’s had sort of a lot of girl-friends, huh? Peach, Daisy, Rosalina, Pauline . . . Hmmm.

We didn’t include PC in this poll, because it would have obviously taken all the “Marry” votes, and that’s not fair.


Also, let me state right now, for the record, that I personally am going to buy an Xbox One X. I already have an Elite Controller and I need a new TV, you see, and I figure I should get a 4K one . . . with HDR. So, um, I will play Forza 7 on that.

I make videos for Kotaku. I make video games for myself and my friends. I like writing fiction. Someday I will publish a novel. Who knows!
