Opinion: Why Exclusive Games Suck

OnlySP - "With the recent console war going on between the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, one of the main arguments for defending the Xbox One revolves around the exclusive games it will be offering. Games such as Halo 5, Titan Fall, and my favorite Killer Instinct are predicted to be major hits for the Xbox One…but is it necessarily a good thing to limit these games to just one system? I will ultimately show that games need not be exclusive to a specific console and that it should be left to the player to decide."

So exclusives suck because they're exclusive?

That's what I got from this...

I fully agree with the author. I would prefer all games to be multiplatform games.

Imagine if we had to buy 8 different models of Blu-ray player just to play all of our favorite movies, simply because certain movies were exclusive to certain models of Blu-ray players. I would hate that.

Unfortunately that is the current reality we deal with in gaming.

Exclusives can obviously be great games in and of themselves, but the fact that they are exclusive to one platform does nobody any good except for the platform holders themselves who are trying to get people to buy into their platform.

That is the whole point of exclusives. They are made to help sell the platform they are on. They also generally help show the strengths of the platform they were designed for. If it weren't for exclusives then one company would pretty much have full access to how we game and going by what Microsoft had tried to do that would be a very bad thing.

I think of exclusives as forcing evolution in gaming.
This doesn't always take place, as copying happens more often than not.
But even when copy catting, you still get innovation over time.
Gaming has come a long way since the days of pong.

Exclusive suck because of fanboy, they just won't shut up about it. It's like per-school all over. My marble are bigger than yours

Exclusives don't suck. The people that enjoy rubbing it in your face suck.

Exclusive games push the limits of a system because they don't have another system to worry about (see: The Last of Us). They also drive console sales. Halo? Smash Bros.? Uncharted (GOW, etc.)? System sellers. They're good for the industry. You always have to have something to brag about these days :P lol.
