Poll: What's the best console exclusive this year? (97 votes)

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze 5%
inFamous: Second Son 27%
Titanfall 16%
Mario Kart 8 52%

This year has been a bit light on console exclusives, hasn't it? Regardless, each system has gotten at least one, and the games have always been amazing.

So my question to you all is... which console exclusive released this year do you think is the best, and why?

Nintendo and there are no two doubts about it. Then it's a question whether you prefer SP or MP experiences.

#2 Posted by mikhail (1139 posts) -

The best exclusive so far this year is Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Poll failure.

#3 Posted by Bigboi500 (29373 posts) -

Mario Kart 8. No more rubber-banding.

This would be so relevant to this discussion if:

a) A Link Between Worlds was a console game

b) It had actually, you know, released this year

Mario Kart 8. No more rubber-banding.

We need to play an online race, man.

Two Nintendo games? That's just favouritism.

Word. I usually play online around 12am central time.

Mario Kart 8 is the one of those games that interests me the most, and is the game that is making me seriously consider getting a Wii U.
Donkey Kong and TitanFall are nice to have.
And Infamous from what I have heard and seen is not a very good game.

I listed every single console exclusive of the year, it's not my fault Nintendo released two of them.

How about tomorrow? (I mean Monday 12am CT)

Year isn't even half way over, dipshit.

@charizard1605: Count me in.

What I like most about this game online is the utter chaos with twelve people throwing stuff around wildly. You can be damn good at the game and still come in last place from time to time.

#13 Posted by FastRobby (1251 posts) -

You should make it "so far", because I can see Sunset Overdrive competing at the end of the year. Also FH2 and DC

making a exclusive of the year thread with just over 5 months gone + 2 ninty titles with 1 of them a racing game. smh

Are not games from this year. Are people's concept of years absolutely whacked up all of a sudden, or what?

Ha. Yes, I noticed that in some local co-op Grand Prixes -_-

I meant to edit that in, but it's a poll, and poll titles can't be edited :/ I guess that's just implied now.

#17 Posted by freedomfreak (39217 posts) -

uhm

MK8, I guess.

You are a moron and you can't do anything right. Kill yourself before your seed somehow finds a host and further pollutes the world with your filth.

Tell me how you really feel, man. Let it all out, don't hold anything back.

#21 Edited by finalstar2007 (24967 posts) -

Its hard to comment when the provided games are all games i havent played.. i will play infamous ( when i get a PS4 ) and Titanfall ( when it hits PS4 ) later on but based on the provided list none of them.

Best games to come out this year so far are ( at least the ones on top of my head right now ) Tales of Symphonia chronicles, monster monipeice, and a lot others that i forgot about on both PS3 and Vita.

Charizard is pretty intelligent. It is not often I get to talk to someone about advanced mathematics, physics or astronomy. Not to mention, at this rate, these will probably be the best console exclusives this year anyway. E3 isnt looking very hot and I am not sure much more worthwhile will be console exclusive this year.

His tastes are also better than yours ;)

#24 Edited by Lucianu (9352 posts) -

The WiiU has the best offerings, and given the announcements, i can't see that changing this year.

#25 Posted by lamprey263 (23201 posts) -

hopefully it's Bayonetta 2

#26 Posted by thehig1 (1411 posts) -

Is that all I've missed out in this year so far, I'm not getting a gen 8 console anytime soon then

#27 Posted by Sweenix (5398 posts) -

No mention of the PS3?

could this thread be anymore inaccurate

#28 Posted by aroxx_ab (9282 posts) -

Infamous:SS so far, some kiddy cartoon racer is not my cup of tea.Titanfall is not an exclusive game.

#29 Posted by Suppaman100 (3778 posts) -

I actually wanted to go back and edit in 'so far' into the title, but you can't edit poll titles.

#31 Posted by KiZZo1 (3965 posts) -

Nothing impressive so far ...

#32 Posted by blamix99 (1697 posts) -

MK8 then Infamous SS for me, lol.. Nothing on X1 this yr

#33 Edited by AzatiS (7285 posts) -

We have 6 months to go.... what the hell !

#34 Edited by SolidGame_basic (16881 posts) -

Is this a very subtle pro Mario Kart thread lol also you forgot mlb the show

#35 Posted by Cloud_imperium (2577 posts) -

None of them interest me and I haven't played any of them but Titanfall looks like fun . So ... Titanfall .

#36 Posted by jake44 (1971 posts) -

Infamous for me. Not a fan of MK anymore.

#37 Posted by Jeager_Titan (945 posts) -

Mario kart 8.

#38 Posted by misterpmedia (3363 posts) -

Bayonetta 2 if I were to pick one from a competing console.

#39 Edited by sHaDyCuBe321 (4076 posts) -
#40 Posted by yokofox33 (29375 posts) -

I guess Mario Kart 8. Game can be really cheap though at times, and even though the gameplay is great, it's a fairly bare bones racing game.

#41 Posted by trugs26 (5297 posts) -

I've played DK, MK8 and Titanfall (PC version).

MK8 is my favorite. I played a demo of inFamous 2, but I'm not a fan.

#42 Edited by remiks00 (1719 posts) -

@charizard1605 I haven't played MK8, but from that list I'd probably vote MK8 or Titanfall. Infamous SS was incredibly boring. Maybe that's because I've played Infamous 1 & 2 in the past, and SS was really not much different. Those repetitive side missions...ugh. I digress...

Btw bro, Titanfall isn't a "console exclusive", I have it on PC. But, whatever. :-P

Console exclusive is a term around here though, basically it means an game that comes to only one of the consoles (but not necessarily exclusive to that system) so a PC/360 game is console exclusive to the 360. Unnecessary? Yes.

#44 Edited by clyde46 (45090 posts) -

I would say SS.

#45 Edited by The_Last_Ride (70777 posts) -

That has to be Mario Kart 8

@SolidGame_basic: The Show is not exclusive and neither is Titanfall.

lmao not this conversation again. Of course The Show is a console exclusive. What other console can play The Show? the Vita is a handheld. Is a potential buyer going to say "well, hmm. The PS4 has the Show, and the X1/360 or Wii U don't have it, but wait! I can get the inferior port on a handheld!" There's also a reason why MS tried so hard to get Titanfall on X1 despite it being available on PC.

#48 Edited by sHaDyCuBe321 (4076 posts) -

@SolidGame_basic: It's out on the PS3 and it was out a month earlier. If I can get it anywhere else it's not exclusive. Anyone who argues it's console exclusive is wrong because it's on more than one console. I don't need a PS4 to play it, just like I don't need an Xbox One to play Titanfall.

I see your point, however, it is still within the Playstation ecosystem. If you are considering another platform like X1/360, Wii U or even PC, you're out of luck.

Mario Kart 8 is by far the best. Better question is what was the best great game SINCE MK8.

...and on Mario Kart 8...an 8 on Gamespot? Holysht that has got to be the worst review they've ever done, EVER. Yes, ever. Not exaggerating. They need to rethink their review process or even their staff. This game deserves as much praise as Mario Galaxy.
