    I don't mind either of those phrases that much, but next-gen is just overused and nerdy in my opinion.

    Awesome is awesome. Next-gen is anti-awesome. I'm tired of hearing it.

    I say both. Next-gen is worse though, because every gen is next-gen, even last-gen ugh stupid gens. And well awesome....not sure it strikes so much awe.

    We should use cool and wicked....haha

    Next gen, because people have been calling the Xbox 360 next gen for years - how can something that is here now be next-gen?

    I think Americans misuse "awesome" just like British misuse "wicked". I agree, aweful. Much worse than "next-gen", which is a misnomer. Whereas use of awesome reflects lack of ability to use adjectives and comparatives.

    I predict the next dreadful word to enter the internet channels as: verb, to awesome.

    e.g. Those guys were awesomed by what they saw, or, The PC was awesomated with upgrades. And in chat channels, not PWND but AWSMD.

    :eek: eek

    This poll is out of date: it should include two new horrible entries. One short, the other long:

    1./ "unleash"

    2./ "XYZ announces a long-term strategic relationship to provide their mutual customers with an innovative next-gen product enablement program"

    You ask about #2? Seriously, you couldnt make this stuff up! http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=105379
