Just going through the list of pure crap they have released in the past decade, I'd have to say the last real banger they released was Gears 3 all the way back in 2011. Is there any other publisher in the industry that has gone that long without a banger that isn't an annual release? It's insane to think this company makes hardware and went so long without investing in any quality software for it.

Can we stop using the word "banger"? I am tired of seeing that slang word.

That's actually a good question. None of their premier first party games have been popular in a long time. I guess Forza is what they're known for?

Yep. It's really sad that for the last decade Microsoft has brought nothing to the table of the gaming industry except for annual racing games.

That's why the trolls above are trying to derail another thread that they don't like the real answer to.

I'm personally not a fan of online shooters or racers so Microsoft's "big three" doesn't do anything for me, but Ori was decent and I really enjoy the Age of Empire games.

@NathanDrakeSwag: I mean, as a new xbox owner, I have tons to catch up on but I can see how it's been stagnant as a long time owner. Really feel bad for xbox only owners.

@NathanDrakeSwag: “All MS has is Halo and Forza.” Cows have been trying to capture these lightning in a bottle games for years, chasing their own cow tails. What happened to Gran Turismo? Used to be the king of racers. Ridge Racer? It’s like they gave up. Killzone? Resistance? Crickets. Better start some voodoo magic or something cause Halo MP is shaping up to be a smash hit. We already know FH5 is gonna take a fat dump on Cows. If HZD gets delayed…all Cows will have are inferior multiplats.

What happened to Halo and Gears? They're both steaming trash these days. Gran Turismo Sport is the official racing simulator of the Olympics. Where's Forza Academy at? GT Sport as a spinoff still outsold every Forza last gen. Ouch!

@NathanDrakeSwag: wow goes to show how desperate cows are when they are hyping GT as the Olympics sim. Real question is when did GT last out score Forza? Or because scores don't favour your argument they don't count and now it's sales that matter?

The fans of real driving simulation have spoken and GT is still the most popular driving simulation franchise on the market. Imagine trying to say that the Olympics and the millions of driving simulation fans around the world are wrong just because Forza scores higher among some four eyed journalists who can't even drive stick.

Congratulations to Sony for shelling out a LOT of money to get that .. a paid endorsement does not mean it is good

@NathanDrakeSwag: so what your saying is that GT is the McDonald's of the driving world whilst forza is a 5 star michelin restaurants?

Also whilst is creating a thread asking about "bangers", you are now disregarding scores because it doesn't suit your narrative (just like I said it would). So from now on are we expecting you to never bring up scores again?

You're a joke.

Special needs Nathan is back!

Going by published games I'll say Ori and the Will of the Wisps. 92 on MC is a banger. But I'm sure that doesn't count because reasons.

Because he wants one. But, he begged his parents to get him a PS5; and now that he has one, they won't buy him an XSX.

I'm pretty sure he doesn't bang, not when every time I visit SW and he's the first one I see hanging out at the door with that red solo cup, engaged in the same recycled shitposting. There's just no way you have a skilful job or a healthy relationship to bang when you're here 24/7.

That's why they bought a bunch of studios.

Xbox Game Studios has been pretty stale for a while now and, that won't change until those studios start producing.

I dunno, TC, but I figured you'd have your finger on the pulse of this hot button issue, as it seems the only thing you ever really post about is MS related. You're really dropping the ball here.

Cuphead, albeit MS simply enabled its development. They didn’t have a hand in its production.

Among MS Studios, Sea of Thieves? If not that, Halo 5’s MP, though even that was hit-and-miss.
