Dafuq is State of Decay doing on this list when Project Gotham Racing didn’t make the cut?

Prob because PGR got its start as Metropolis Street Racing on the DC and it isnt a MS franchise. They published it but did not own it. When Activision bought BC and then ultimately closed them down... PGR went with them. would be nice to see a new PGR game though. MS would have to talk to Activision on that one.

Technically, almost everything about PGR has been integrated into Forza Horizon at this point, even "Kudos", although I do miss the challenges (cone, passing, etc.). Even Rallisport Challenge is being incorporated into FH to a degree. Playground is on point with sim-arcade racing!

Yeah I think SoD is more worthy to be on the list then PGR

“Prob because PGR got its start as Metropolis Street Racing on the DC and it isnt a MS franchise.”

Yet Minecraft got its start on PC and wasn’t a Microsoft franchise when it started. Yet after the acquisition it’s on this list. So no reason to not have PGR on this list

Age Of Empires is a rather odd franchise to put on their since it has basically been just a pc game really even though it was on various windows os.

Tobse134d ago

It says MICROSOFT franchises, doesnt it?

Sciurus_vulgaris135d ago

Alan Wake isn't a Microsoft franchise as it is owned by Remedy.

darthv72134d ago

And 1 game does not constitute a "franchise" even though technically there was the XBLA American Nightmare game.

SegaGamer135d ago

Sorry, but that list is very bland and boring.
