Xbox One – The Most Underrated Launch Lineup Ever?

Microsoft did a lot of things wrong when they launched the Xbox One….a lot of things wrong, but one thing they did right, and certainly better than its key competitor, is the launch lineup. None of these games will be remembered as genuine classics a few years from now, but as a versatile, entertaining and consistently enjoyable selection of games, the Xbox One’s was unquestionably better than most and certainly better than many would have you believe.

Sorry but Ryse is just awful, the XBone's Lair

Dead Rising was decent but no classic or console seller

Forza was a good game ruined by the over greedy DLC pricing, after paying $60 you have to pay another $60 for the bulk of the content.

Anyway launch is a long time in the past, now the XB1 has only 30 and some games while the PS4 has about 70 games with better average review scores and wider variety

n4gamingm801d ago

of course you hate it lol.

Lightning Mr Bubbles801d ago

It was better than the PS4's in my opinion. Dead Rising 3 alone did it.

Mystogan801d ago

Yeah 70 games with 60 of them being small wannabe mario indie games.

Anyone who owns both console will tell you that Xbox One has the better games.

NewMonday801d ago

@Mystogan

multi-console owners favor the PS4 actually, even in this very comment section, the same in most game discussion forums, this is part of the PS4 sales domination and why the the big XB1 price cut is ineffective.

BX81801d ago

Sure buddy. That's why I play my XB1 every day and haven't played my PS4 in over a week.

psyxon801d ago

I own both consoles and I prefer the PS4's games.

NewMonday801d ago

@BX81

to bad for MS and XB1 that customers like you are rare or don't exist at all :(

BX81800d ago

Rare? Awwww shucks, that's the sweetest thing.

Obvious Sony fanboy....

And obviously have never played the games you are commenting upon.

Gamerbynight801d ago

N4g is an obvious sony fan site and has been now for several years. I am not saying that is bad but the opinions in xbox articles is going to be very pro sony and its clear as the eye can see. I am sure there are xbox sites that will vote down sonys fans comments as well and this site used to be more pro xbox but its 10 to 1 sony now at least at that is just how it is.

NewMonday801d ago

sorry to break it to you but other than on dedicated Xbox communities the PS4 is the most favored everywhere.

MichaelLito79801d ago

Sorry New Monday but you are just hating its beyond me why you have so many bubbles. Xbox One Lineup still holds up to this date. Great launch and post launch. Can't wait to see what's coming.

NewMonday800d ago

That the PS4 has the best and most games now is a fact not an opinion, this is based on published games and average review ratings.

Don't shoot the messenger

The only people who don't think XB1 has the best games right now are just too prideful to admit it. The variety and fun factor has been great. If we are looking at games I can play on XB1 you can't play on your ps4 it's not even close.

Fighting - KI
Racing - Forza 5
Action - Ryse, Crimson Dragon, Halo Spartan Assualt
Zombie- Dr3
Creative - Project Spark, Zoo Tycoon
FPS - Titanfall, PvZ
Adventure - Max COB
Family/Party - Kinect Sports Rivals, Powerstar Golf

I think it's safe to say the list above beats out the competition. Almost every genre is captured on the XB1.

Also before everyone calls me bias... Please tell me why I'm wrong, don't use your favorite art of deflection. Tell me how resogun, towerfall, don't starve, KZSF, infamous ss, knack, and a few more indies are better than the list above.

pedrof93801d ago (Edited 801d ago )

To prove something you must give proper arguments.

Apart from Titanfall and Forza, the rest isn't worth it.

Outlast and DLC
Killzone SF is getting better and better
Bound by flame
MLB The Show
Towerfall
Mercenary kings
Flower
Resogun

Oh and better Multiplats.

Also at this point Ps4 has more AAA, if you didn't notice.

And MS won't release another AAA until the end of the year.

Fighting - KI - Ok game
Racing - Forza 5 - Great game
Action - Ryse, Crimson Dragon, Halo Spartan Assualt - God awfull
Zombie- Dr3 - Boring after a while
Creative - Project Spark, Zoo Tycoon - no opinion
FPS - Titanfall, PvZ - Overrated
Adventure - Max COB - What's this ?
Family/Party - Kinect Sports Rivals, Powerstar Golf - God awfull

Lawboy2801d ago

What are you talking about half ur list is indies

Bound by flame, outlast, tower fall, mercenary kings are all indies...

Seriously...what are u talking about....some ppl

Triple a for the ps4 are

Killzone
Infamous
Knack
Mlb the show

pedrof93801d ago

@Law

Do you know how to read ?

"Also at this point Ps4 has more AAA"

Did I say these games were AAA ?

Stupid. You are.

Lawboy2801d ago (Edited 801d ago )

@ Pedro

That is why I listed the triple A exclusives for ps4...do you read

There are 4 triple A exclusives right now how is that more than the xbox one or can you not count as well

Again some ppl

OT: since I wasted my bubbles responding to idiocracy...I just would like to say I agree with the article the xbox one launch lineup is underrated because it's on the xbox one...if it was on a more popular system it would have received a lot more praise...the line up was very diverse and had games for everyone...if you didn't like driving then there was dr3....if you are a graphic whore there's ryse...if you want to get ur fight on there was killer instinct...and let's not get started on plants v zombies which is amazing

And if the last two weeks are any indication of what is to come this year...the line up looks like it will only get better...I'm glad I picked up an xbox one

Mystogan801d ago

Lol you're trying to hard bro. Just admit it. Xbox One has the better line-up and will completely rape Sony at E3.

Truth hurts I know.

AussieBadger801d ago

Ha ha killzone and bound by flame. 1 very ordinary game killzone. Bound by flame terrible game. I like both consoles but titanfall kills killzone. Serious bound by flame lol ryse slaughters this game imo.

@truefan1

http://www.gamesreviews.com...

PS4:66 with 21 games scoring above 8/10
XB1:34 only 8 games scoring above 8/10

PS4 wins both quantity AND quality

WilDRangeRrfc801d ago

Laughable Indies Indies Indies half those PS4 games are 2-3 year old PC games let's look at AAA PS4= KZSF,Knack,MLB,ISS,forget Indies and F2P AAA games define how good a platform is
X1= Forza 5 ( best driving franchise out there )
DR3,Killer Instinct ( PS4 has no fighter ) Plants vs Zombies,Titanfall ( best shooter on either platform ) Project Spark ( unique game ) Ryse,MaxCurse Of Brotherhood,Crimson Dragon.That table you linked is laughable hell it has atleast 4 multiplatform games that are given different scores WTF??? #clutching at straws(Indies F2P)

WilDRangeRrfc801d ago

Oh and the source is provided by NeoGaf that non Pro Sony biased site right??? LMAO,90% of those games are trash,Blacklight Retribution and Octodad are AAAAAAA games though HAHA I sold my PS4 OVERATED

MichaelLito79801d ago

@ New Monday you love to fluff your lineup now your a troll.

GarrusVakarian801d ago (Edited 801d ago )

Sigh, your "im always right attitude", "i dare you to tell me why im wrong" is really starting to grate on me. You have a really big problem with accepting other people opinions.

"Please tell me why I'm wrong, don't use your favorite art of deflection. Tell me how resogun, towerfall, don't starve, KZSF, infamous ss, knack, and a few more indies are better than the list above."

...Because some people might like those games more? Did that simple fact ever occur to you? I also love how you leave other PS4 games out (that aren't on Xbox), such as MLB and Final Fantasy and say "certain other indies" instead, lol. Nah, that's not biased...at all..../s

To be honest, your constant need to tell people that the X1 has the better games sounds like classic self-reassurance. It's like you are trying to convince yourself, rather than convince other people.

On topic: I thought both consoles launch line-ups were pretty bad. I only completed Killzone because of how good it looked, didn't even manage to make it past the first 30 minutes in Ryse, only played DR3 because im bored out of my mind waiting for Watch Dogs, Forza was a let down compared to previous games in the series, Knack never held my interest enough to warrant a purchase and i don't enjoy fighting games...so K.I was never on my radar.

Launch line-ups usually suck for me, this one was no exception.

I agree totally and as my name suggests i am more of an xbox player than ps4 but have both

all in all launch games are mixed affairs but this year we will see less titles made for both this generation and last and who really cares about exclusives anymore Sony and Microsoft are now in the games buisness for the time being not console release

ger2396801d ago

Completely subjective. But coming from you I'm not shocked. Also games so good, They really helped sell the Xbox 1. /s

incendy35801d ago (Edited 801d ago )

To me it has been the best launch I have been a part of for sure. Not only tons of exclusives but almost all of them have been great. Forza 5, Titanfall, Peggle 2, Ryse, Dead Rising, Max, Plants VS Zombies, Kinect Sports Rivals have all be so much fun.

And although it missed the launch window, Super Time Force is probably the best bullet hell game ever created.. it is that good!

Hard to complain about games on the X1.

weekev15801d ago

Lets be honest. No launch lineup evrr shows off the capability of the system as devs are under pressure to get their games ready for launch. IMO this is why Forza felt watered down in terms of content. They wanted to show off the power so it has to look amazing but even the most hardcore xbox fan cant have missed the diference in content between this and horizon.

The beauty of next gen is that the absolute gems are about to drop. Watch dogs, Halo, Uncharted, The Order, Spark, Zelda U, Driveclub etc etc all these games will put to shame any launch lineup as the devs are given time to put some love in and ensure they are optimised to the best of the respective consoles power.

WeAreLegion801d ago

It's not bad. The Vita's launch lineup was the best in years though.
