Everything, so far, this console generation has been decent to subpar. Just my two cents.
- Paying money for a feature previous consoles could use for free. (Online)
This was bound to happen, keeping servers running and having there own stores and UI's they needed to start charging I wish they didn't but they had to
- $50 and $60 remasters of fairly recent games that came out last generation.
You say that and yet we've had The Last Of Us, Tomb Raider, GTA5 and that's it for now 3 isn't bad, and the fact TLOU was an exclusive and alot of xbox owners jumped ship to PS4 it seems right, plus you wouldn't grumble on a game of the year edition and it's the same thing, all 3 games would of had a game of the year edition anyway, so why not, it doesn't hurt anything, it hasn't effected game development from other games because a small team worked on them, not the whole team.
- Having to install every game you get, including games on DISC.
:S really confused, this has been happening since the PS3/360 days, It's not a new thing.
- Some big games, (Like Titanfal, PVZ Garden Warfare and Destiny), are online only. (If your internet goes out, your screwed)
:S I don't understand your problem, I mean does anyone play call of duty for it's single player game???? no it's multiplayer and all the ones you listed are multiplayer games at there best, of course your screwed if your internet goes out, but so are many other games on PC, it's a thing, but I mean how many times does your internet go out, if your planning on playing these games, people know what there internet is like nowadays and will respond accordingly.
- Most big games have turned out to be underwhelming. (With a few exceptions) (Opinion)
I'd disagree, I think the hype was to high for the big games and people was expecting to much in the first year, do you even remember the PS3 launch, god that was a hard sluggish first year.
- Consoles can't play/stream your media with an internet connection. (Correct me if I'm wrong)
Not sure what your talking about, but I mean the fact that people if they want to stream media, they more than likely have a device to do it anyway.
I think it's been a great start. We have had the most games I've ever known in the first year, we've had more exclusives than any other time this first year, graphics wise depends on the company, and I know there not a huge step up but what was anyone expecting for the price tag. Saying that, it's still great, games run a hell of a lot smoother, the UI's are so much neater and run alot faster, it is a little strange that both companies are only dipping one foot into the water, but that will soon change as soon as we leave the PS3/360 to there own now and move on then we'll start seeing better looking games, but as of right now I'm really enjoying the games what are out and are coming out and cannot wait.
I'd also like the say that the Wii U, to me, only console that has a major difference over the previous console. And it's the only console that's gameplay is still new and different feeling. (Touch screen controls, Off Screen Play, 5-player local multiplayer, TV remote functions, etc, etc)
That's a cop out right there, Wii U is only a major difference because it's gone from standard def on the Wii to HD on the Wii U, the Wii U is still way to out dated and was a complete waste of time, what they should of done is compete with the big boys like they said at the launch of the Wii U, but instead they've gone back into hiding, and it's took this long to even get decent games out, you talk like the Wii U is amazing, when it took over a year to see any games and even now, we have no sight on a Zelda until end of next year, no clue on what Mario is up to in a new Galaxy game or something with that imagination, I mean we got another mario kart whoop, and smash bros and that's it for this year, bayonetta 2 which is only a small minority who actually care enough to go and buy a Wii U console for it.
