Poll: Is this the worst gen for lemmings and the Xbox? (51 votes)

No, original Xbox 16%
No, 360 0%
Yes, worst 84%

Despite, somehow the Xbone selling more than the original Xbox, it has had less exclusives than my hands can count.

The original Xbox had some incredible titles like Halo, Fable, Ninja Gaiden, etc... I mean classics. But this gen, Xbox ONE has which classic title? They all multiplats

Also, the 360 was godlike. Honestly, my favourite console of the past gen. So, lol - lem's having a bad gen?

That's what I don't get. I was under impression that 360 lemmings were worst, and figured all you cows are butthurt about the 8 years PS3 was dumb and everyone loved the 360, so acting like terrible people all the time, beyond that of normal lines.

If you all are really this bad and not cause bitter fucks, then it doesn't matter if lemmings are worst, cause you all are on another level.

Destructoid, Adam Sessler, Kotaku, GiantBomb, and IGN have commented on how bad Sony fans have been since PS2.

Adam Sessler famously had to address it again after his Killzone 2 review.............which he gave it a 5/5

I consider it the worst for games but one of the best consoles. PS4 was designed to play games and that's it. Xbox trust to be a media hub that can play games. I hate the PS4 media player and option to run the media from my PC is horrible.

360 was the worst:

  • RROD
  • Focus on Kinect
  • Focus on DLC
  • Focus on COD
  • Death of Ensemble
  • Death of Rare
  • Losing Bungie
  • Losing Bizarre
  • Don Mattrick

Funny how you were so chicken scared, you didn't even bet - knowing the Xbone has zero good exclusives and Crackflop 3 would flop just like Sea of Piss and Stay of Poo 2.

The jealousy of cows is getting out of hand.

Seriously dude, play your ps4 if it’s so great and quit looking ridiculous on the internet.

That said, the OG Xbox is my favorite console of all time. That doesn’t mean I like my X1 that much less - my environment and gaming were different back then.

If I owned a ps4 this gen I’d mostly be playing multiplats as playstation exclusives don’t interest me. That, and I’d have to play on an inferior controller and network. I’d also not be able to play the Halo collection, about 6 Forza games, Gears of War collection, and the original Titanfall which I find better than the sequel. So is the ps4 better for me than the X1? Obviously not.

Losing Bizarre was both a bad thing and a good thing, as Playground Games rose from the ashes of Craptivision's shitty management of Bizarre.

Losing Bungie was a good thing as it showed that Bungie are one hit wonders.

@undefined: allllso! The title is jacked up.... The xbox as a brand didn't achieve the same excitement as it has in the past but in no way does that mean it's fans didn't have an incredible time with the machine. Your title is wrong.

Original Xbox had a dearth of arcade games. It was basically a pc game console with an abortion of a controller. Loved it at the time, but spent way more time on my ps2.

Totally this!

The first Xbox was a cool introduction console cause it gave us Halo: Combat Evolve, it's still fun to play by today's standards and I believe it aged well. Xbox 360 is what really shine for MS, it's just a damn shame Xbox One didn't live up to it's younger brother 360. I'm not trying to be mean but the Xbox One is clearly the most redundant console this gen has to offer.

The original Mass Effect by itself was worth getting a 360, which I did. Also, Shadow Complex was a great game on 360. The RRoD issue kind of makes it a terrible gen for Microsoft however.

For this gen, the rocky start with Xbox 1 (still a stupid name) made it fall behind and it never caught up. Plus, there just wasn't any intriguing games for it that made me want to go out and buy one.

XBox was a strong start. It didn't sell as much as it probably should have, but it got the ball rolling on big franchises like Halo and Splinter Cell. It paved the way for where console online would ultimately go with Live. It was unquestionably the most powerful system.

360 became a mixed bag. It started out hitting all the right cadences. Peter Moore was brutal at stealing Sony's lunch money again and again. Some of it was trickster narrative artistry but it absolutely must be said that it was backed up with a whole lot of games. Even managing the unthinkable by getting quality Japanese support. The 360s first three years were some of the best post-PS1 years in gaming. They just got so much right.

The second half of 360, was equally as much a let-down as the first half was triumph. I'd even go as far as to say the XBox One really launched in 2009. I mean, if you're the variety of gamer prosletyzing the glorious Gospel of the Generationless Console as a Platform bullshit then there really is no separation from the post 2008 XBox 360 and what MS was doing with the XBox One. Exclusives don't matter, amirite? Tribute band developers are awesome, right? Outsourcing and in-sourcing your biggest IP is le righteous, amirite? ....Kinect, amirite?

Anyhoo, this is by far the worst generation for XBox. As much effort as they have put trying to distance themselves from the XBone launch, they have also exerted into remaining in place. There was a point there where kitchen sink hucksterism was going on and they are still paying a price for it even right now. "The Chalkboard" is an omnipresent meme in the fanboy wars. "Cloud Powah" is getting tied to a post and beaten. XBox and its fanbase are still trying to reverse engineer a narrative that allows studio acquisitions and exclusives to be hyped again after SWEARING to have evolved past such things like almighty gaming Vorlon overlords who were too good for that. Sad punch line to the joke being, XBox One isn't even the goal any more for XBox or even its fans, really.

I mean, XBox has always cut and run from its consoles a tad early, but XBox One is the first generation where XBox fans wanted to cut out early, as well. Its "Sony hasnt invested in Cloud, this" and "6 tflops" that. "Hey guys, look at all the studios making games for Scarlet". Not to mention, XBox fans are thinly veiled in their attempts to pull the Playstation 5 reveal earlier and earlier. Not because they can't wait for a new Playstation, but because they can't wait for an excuse to have a new XBox reveal. If thats not a low-point for a fanbase and its console, I dont know what is.

You would have to say it's been the most disappointing closely followed by the backend of the 360 with the constant pushing of Kinect.

Yeah it’s been a pretty rough gen for Microsoft but I think that they’ve done an admirable job turning things back around. I’ve had a really good time on the Xbox One system myself though and that’s all that really matters to me.

The system and it's service is very solid. I wouldn't trade it with anything else. It just lacks games. And that's f***ed up.

@Archangel3371: it's funny though. Look back at the launch and the issues people had. Kinect spyi g on them yet only a few years later we have google dots and Alexa doing the same thing and nary a whisper about privacy... no used games outcry yet most people have embraced digital which has all the issues people so vehemently rallied against. The only thing that remains is that the kinect made the xb1 less powerful than the ps4 and more expensive. That was the one thing that killed them this gen which couldn't be addressed until after the generation was decided.

Nope, a few quality games (Gears of War, Alan Wake, Saint's Row) don't make up for all the shit I had to put with by owning a 360.

Xbox One is in a way better state. For one 3/4th of all Xbox One's aren't faulty with RROD.

Well that is not really fair, because there is no reason for MS to make a game 100% exclusive to XB anymore since it can just be extra profit in PC.

Fact is they can't be played on PS or Nintendo.

I enjoyed the original xbox games a lot, even the low rated games seemed to have charm and redeeming value when compared to anything released this gen.

Brute Force > virtually anything released on xbox one TBH

Just one example

others:

Otagi

Sudeki

Morrowind

Jade Empire

Mech Assault

NFL Fever

Blinx the Time Sweeper

Dead of Alive

List goes on. Quality System over and above 360 to be honest.
