The last TR impressed the hell out of me and was my favorite game that year.

This is a day 1 buy, the studio earned that faith. #25

WOW. I am with the majority here...certainly surprised, impressed and curious as to what they will do with this amazing looking tech.

I was expecting another VR machine but am glad to see they are doing their own focus #35

Exactly. Every item impresses and disappoints someone, so it seems odd to bash a platform based on my own personal quirks.

Each system has its own titles and perks, to each their own.

While (imo) the ps4 will dominate sales wise, I think each system will deliver fun. #15.1.1

I have been very impressed with the X1 so far. Games like Sunset Overdrive, Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Titanfall, Halo Collection, Forza 5 & Horizon 2, D4 and more have kept me entertained (that isn't even including the obvious third party games like Destiny, Diablo, etc).

And we have games like Scalebound, Phantom Dust, Gears 4, Crackdown, Fable Legends, Quantum Break, Halo Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider and more in the next year or two.

Of course it won't. Sony has a better reputation, slightly stronger hardware and as the games start rolling out, the momentum will be unstoppable. They will win this gen hands down.

However, as an X1 owner, that doesn't bug me. As long as MS can still do well (which they can with good pricing and games), we can all play fun games on the console of our choice.

Congrats to Sony and good luck to MS and Nintendo on working towards their own levels of succ... #33

I think my 5 favorite moments have been:

- Doing an ultra combo as Orchid (KI)
- Taking down a titan for the first time (Titanfall)
- Survivng a night defense in style (Sunset Overdrive)
- Mowing down zombies with a flamethrower/steam roller (Dead Rising 3)
- Beat all alternate stages (Volgarr the Viking)

But there have been a lot of others would could have made my top 5. I have loved my X1 and look forward to good times in the... #4

Wow the negativity is strong on this one.

Yes, the X1 has a lot of catching up to do. And yes it may never catch the PS4.

But if it is successful and profitable and releases fun games, should all the hate be necessary?

This gen, I have played Ryse: SoR, Dead Rising 3, Forza 5, Titanfall, Killer Instinct, Titanfall, Sunset Overdrive, D4, Dance Central: SL, Halo Collection among others as well as some fun multiplatform (ps4 and x1) titles.

That is why I put the quotation marks around hateful. Many in the gaming community see a 6 and immediately dismiss the game, mock the game's fans and owners of the console. That score is usually associated with hate.

You may buy a game with his review but most see a 6 and walk away. Also I read the review and that made the 6 all the more baffling.

The campaigns were well done. And there are FOUR OF THEM. But due to online issues he had (which were awful),... #49.1.1

Metacritic is an 87...so yes, is is certainly one of the lowest out there. #44.1

So what?

It means the system is improving and delivering on the promise of good games to play on it.

Will they pass Sony? I would bet no, due to Sony's popularity and the strong upcoming 2015 line-up alongside the edge in multiplatform performance.

However, the X1 has released a lot of fun games, has a lot more set to be released and is going to do well enough for the brand to continue.

So what... #55

Metacritic: 87
Gamespot: 6

Of course, the "hateful" review will be the popular one on here, due to the toxic state of gaming where every failure is met with joy from the internet and any good quality is overlooked.

The MP has already improved thanks to the last patch, so even in its current state it isn't 100% broken (although due to the issues x amount are having, I agree with a 2-3 point deduction).

But you have 4 func... #49

As stated above by True Samurai:

"Just read this in a halo forum
ADS is NOT in Halo 5. Let me explain.
For all Halos there has been a scope, and when you scope you zoom in without seeing the gun instantly with no delay. In this game it seems there are optional detachable scopes, as shown in the footage with the gun. When the player zoomed in, it was instant, ADS is never instant, not even in COD. Now, because it was instant, that matched with the old s... #60

So we are going to ignore Ori and the blind forest, Fable Legends, Quantum Break, Halo 5, Crackdown, Scalebound, Phantom Dust then? And that is right after releasing a wide range of titles like DC: S, D4, FH2, SO, etc.

The system is dead, it is just behind Sony. And the fact it isn't far off from the Wii U with one less year is a good sign for it. #67.1

Is this X1 a lost cause in the sense that it can't win this gen? True.

Is this X1 a lost cause in the sense that it can't turn a profit or earn a decent fan base? Not at all.

The X1 is a MUCH better machine one year later in comparison to how it was, it's releasing a good amount of games and has a good amount of games coming in the next year or two.

Sony will be the "champ" but the X1 will have a good fanbase. I am one o... #74

Poor choice of words by the author but I think he or she meant something else besides "fun"

Most games try too hard to be the next big epic saga or try to focus on social agendas and issues (illegal immigration, feminism and so forth).

SO is about fun. It isn't trying to tell an epic heart wrenching saga. It isn't trying to change your personal views. It just wants to give you something happy and fun and carefree.

I love SO... #13

So...

We are comparing two different games in widely different genres, with one being way ahead in development time for the purpose of...what?

People who own an X1 will keep an eye out for SB gameplay.
People who own a PS4 will keep an eye out for BB footage.

That's about it... #54

So we can forget about games like Halo 5, Quantum Break, Fable Legends then? That won't do anything to offset UC4, Bloodborne or the Order?

And that is assuming both Crackdown and Phantom Dust and Scalebound aren't also 2015.

Both systems have a good 2015 at the least. So I agree with your "own all systems" belief but I disagree that sony will murder 2015 any more or less than they murdered already #13.2.2

1 - GG isn't about this, nor does it relate to it. Nice try.

2 - This game is violence without context. It is sick and derranged. You do nothing but kill innocents and law enforcement for the sake of doing it. If this does it for you, get help.

3 - NO ONE (with sense) is arguing this will make killers out of normal people. However, I do believe only a certain kind of person will be drawn to this experience.

4 - They have every right to m... #51

Forza Horizon 2
Halo MC Collection

2015+:

I can agree with a 6/10 review for Destiny. And that is because a 6 SHOULD BE considered something that is playable and can wield some fun...it just isn't great.

It doesn't have the epic "feel" Halo did. It doesn't have the charm that Borderlands has. And it didn't have anywhere near the writing quality Mass Effect did (since those are the three games I have seen it most associated with).

At the end of the day, Destiny is a gorgeous... #59
