That's weird! I just saw an article about how Forza Horizon 4 finished in the top 5 for Meta Critic scores for last year.

Maybe Cows don't consider Racing Games "Games" because they are lucky to get 2 for the whole generation and when they do they suck.

At least Sony isn't so pathetic that the only good games it has are from a dying niche genre. And they're overrated out of pity because the gaming media knows that Xbox's output is sad. Forza's AI is trash. If it weren't for the UK, Forza games wouldn't even have an audience.

Typical. It's only dying because you don't have it or one in general.

I have an Xbox One S. It's a really good 4k blu ray player and Forza player. That's about it.

Maybe I was misinterpreting you, but I thought you made it (Smugly) seem there is no reason to patronize (That means be a consumer of)MS.

Nope, just explaining why I don't think Forza Horizon 4 counts as an exclusive.

Great! I hope you keep your standard for Sony as well as they are actively working on doing the same thing.

Well some people argue that Forza Horizon 4 or Crackdown are exclusives despite also launching on PC. I do agree with you though, I don't know why you think I'm pointing this out as a new discovery. This entire time I've openly admitted it's unsurprising but relevant to System Wars.

The people who argue that these games are exclusives are just silly. I guess you can argue its relevant but this point has been regurgitated from the time the announcement of Xbox Play Anywhere has been made which as in 2017. So, it just seems like a nonsensical repeat of something that has been tirelessly repeated.

To be fair, at least Forza Horizon 4 got some solid hits in Metacritic but yeah, this isn't saying much but it's better then nothing right?

Even Phil Spencer admitted "we could do better" during VGA and really, he wasn't trying to sway his way out of it, MS really didn't deliver with Sea of Thieves & State of Decay 2 despite that game was alot better then Sea of Thieves.

Phil Spencer has done a good job in picking up the Xbox One after Mattrick left. Really hope they blow it out of the water this E3.

For Phil Spencer's sake, let's hope he surprise everyone what Xbox Scarlet can deliver.

I couldn't care less what Phil Spencer has up his sleeves in terms of Xbox hardware. With games? I'm glad Xbox Play Anywhere exists and I look forward to the upcoming Microsoft exclusives I'll be able to enjoy on my PC. I also look forward to what Phil has in store in regards to updating and overhauling the Xbox side of things on PC.

Forza Horizon 4 was a great racing game; I spent a good solid 3-4 weeks playing it consistently until I beat the game per say with almost everything with the exception of the online events and stuff. Online was great fun as well; playing with friends. Then...that was that...I stopped playing the game and haven't touched it since but that is just me and how I play my games personally, once I'm done I don't see a reason to go back unless the online component is addicting and keeps my friends and I coming back for more.

I'm sorry system warriors, console exclusives aren't exclusives. PC is a platform in the competition.

Did you just come out of a coma or come out from under your rock?

MS hasn't had exclusives for a while now so your thread is pointless, having said that I would rather play FH4 on my X than watch anything Sony has produced last year.

That must have been one hell of a coma/rock for me to be posting on the internet all this time ;).

My thread isn't pointless, it's pointing out that Metacritic states that Xbox didn't have any highly rated exclusives in 2018. An argument can be made that it isn't surprising, but I don't see anywhere in the news saying that's a prerequisite for a thread :).

Also why are you bringing up Sony? I haven't defended them nor did I say I was a Sony fan.

Xbox doesn't have exclusives and hasn't for some time where as you're acting like this is a new thing, you can't bring in Metashitic stating that there hasn't been a highly rated exclusive when exclusives don't exist.

Are you saying you're not a Sony fan?

How am I acting like it's a new thing if I'm openly admitting this isn't surprising news?

I'm a fan insofar as they make the games I like from their first party studios. I also have a level of trust with Sony because they've done a good job so far since PS1 days. I'm not a fanboy or Sony apologist though, if they do something wrong I'll call them out on it. Me pointing out something Microsoft is doing has nothing to do with Sony.

So you are a cow, well I already knew that, and the 'I will call them out when they do something wrong" is BS on your part. I've seen some threads where Sony was doing "something wrong" and never saw you condemning them in said threads that were made about it. Having said that I haven't seen all threads where Sony did 'something wrong' and i'm sure you did call them out right?

Oh and this thread is stupid, as how can an Xbox exclusive score highly when exclusives don't exist anymore on Xbox? answer me that.

I haven't called them out on anything recently because all they've been doing is releasing good games. I'm flattered that I've got a personal private detective on my case though ;).

That's also not how you define a cow. You've been on here long enough to know that much, I'm sure.

Your last sentence is exactly my point, I don't see why it's difficult to understand. If there aren't many Xbox exclusives then there aren't any high scoring ones. I'd argue that isn't a very appealing look for Xbox.

That's funny because ever since the X came out the plays better threads have disappeared due to the fact that multiplats are mostly inferior on the PRO when compared to the X and the cow who used to do them got "busy" all of a sudden lol, so those type of threads have merit where as this does not, its stupid.

You want to bring logic into the "wild west" of SW lol, see that's where you lost the fight as SW doesn't have a court of law unless you want to count mods and even they have preferences lol.

SW users fall into a category and you're not special and also fit into one, and for you that category would be a cow, live it up and create shit threads (well you've got that part down pat already) Now none of that changes the simple fact that Xbox doesn't have exclusives anymore, and therefore can't score high, mid range or indeed low, get, got it, good, thanks for playing.

@XVision84: "I'd argue that it does impact buyers decisions on purchasing an Xbox console, "

Exactly. Which is why it's irrelevant if the game is on PC or not. I went for an Xbox because the games not available on PS4 (Cuphead, Ori, FH, Gears, Halo, SoT etc) appeal to me more than the games not available on Xbox (Uncharted, Bloodborne, Last of Us etc).

It has no bearing on Xbox sales if a game is a platform exclusive (available on pc).

@sealionact: I can point out multiple people (including me) who aren't going to purchase an Xbox because they already have decent PC's to play all of its games. This would be a different case if it had its own exclusives.

Why do you think that PC incentives have no effect on Xbox as if they aren't competing systems? Your statement makes it seem like the only two competing systems are PS4 and Xbox which isn't correct.

@sealionact: Because the concept of exclusivity isn't erased from existence just because Microsoft said so. Exclusives matter when purchasing a platform and Microsoft chose to remove all of them from Xbox One. It benefits their ecosystem and detriments their console.

Bringing up the fact that Xbox One lacks exclusive games incentivizing people to buy it (over even a gaming pc) is a relevant and legitimate argument. It's one of the many reasons Xbox is doing so poorly.

@XVision84: I can equally point out numerous people (including me) who did purchase an Xbox based on the games available on it....not on which games are available on another platform.
