Top 7 Gaming Exclusives That Really Hurt

Exclusive games aren't unusual. Every console has titles just for it. But some shouldn't be locked away. These seven should have appeared everywhere!

It's one of those sites where you have to click on the next page to see the next game...ugh

wouldn‘t have clicked this blogpost anyway. whining about exclusives is really kindergarten.

To think I used to visit that site regularly. I haven't for quite some time though. I hated their list format even back then, and their decent writing staff were slowly but surely being replaced by MS fanboys, so I made tracks.

i dunno if it's whining. i can see someone on xbox with an exclusive like ori, sunset overdrive, or cuphead and being like it hurt those games that more people didn't get to play them. true to some extent i think. at least cuphead, and (maybe ori?) moved to switch. i know it's on pc, but now other console gamers get to play. i think quantum break was good too and some ps4 owners would have enjoyed it.

So the bottom line of this piece is, if the game is developed by a 1st or 2nd party then it should be exclusive. Example: 343 making Halo for MS or Naughty Dog making TLoU for Sony.

If developed by a 3rd party it should be published by a 3rd party for any platform that wants a copy. There would be no more 3rd party games published by platform holders. Example: Insomniac developed games published by the likes of MS or Sony or Nintendo but instead a 3rd party publisher like Sega or Activision.

I guess i understand that rationale. The spider-man game currently has no ties to the movie license that Sony has the rights to but if it did then it would make sense for Sony to hold the exclusivity.

Thanks for the heads-up!

There are 7 games listed in the tags.

I will assume those are the 7 of interest and move on.

They aren't locked away, they just have been produced and created by a company and it's studios or a company sees an install base and sees that their game would sell well there. I've been gaming for 30 years and only recently has this notion of "exclusives " become an issue. Every console has had its games that only are on that system. Like I don't recall there being a push for Jade Empire, Knights of the Old Republic, Strangers Wraith or Morrowind to come to the PS2. I'd imagine because the PS2 had a shit load of it's own exclusives. No I had an Xbox for those games. It's not difficult to understand how this works!

Again if a company is doing enough business and has a reputation for quality it's makes sense they'd draw attention from license holders.

For me the narrative should be why isn't there a push for all major console providers to strive to reach the level of quality of competitors and fund more NEW IP's instead of shaming them for providing a fertile environment that delivers the quality exclusives in the first place.

This isn't a cheap hobby and if you are limited on funds then I'd suggest getting the system with the widest range of software that speaks to you.

If it hurts that bad then just get the console it’s on instead of crying about it

BehindTheRows737d ago (Edited 737d ago )

Yup! Problem solved.

But yet two people seem to disagree with you!?

Exactly what I was planning to do for Scalebound. I was going to buy an Xbox since that was the only Xbox One game I was looking forward to playing but they went and killed that chance.

I won’t ever encourage this thought process. Seeing anyone purposely stop themselves from enjoying something they have an interest in then blaming someone else will never resonate with me.

If I want a whopper I’m not going to cry because Burger King has the whopper I’m going to go get the damn whopper. If I want a game on a different platform I’m going to go get it.

Most of the time I can wait and if I wait it’s cheaper and I still enjoy myself no more then getting it day one. I wish people would stop acting like anyone is holding a gun to their head on not getting exclusives. You have a choice, you just choose to whine.
