Amazing that such a BS topic can go over a day without being closed. The state of system wars is at peak worthless garbage.

Seems like a solid 5 or 6/10. Its a game that will play better than it looks, but its not doing anything that justifies owning it over anything else coming out Q1 2019.
That said, I'll still give it a go via GamesPass.
Sea of Thieves was pretty fucking awful. I'm glad there is an audience for it/games pass to help keep the servers and Rare afloat. Beyond that, I think I have enjoyed every other game I've played this year.
Probably one of the worst years from an exclusive perspective (Sea of Thieves, State of Decay, FH4), but a solid year as a whole. Lots of BC and GP support. The 3rd party support is what is keeping the Xbox alive right now. The acquisitions show that they have potential for a better future, but doesn't fix todays problem.
This game has been cooking for far too long at this point. Even with the massive PS4 userbase, I don't see how they can recover the costs on this game. At the same time, Sony allowed The Order and Detroit to exist this gen. Even if Dreams bombs financially, MM will likely still exist.
I feel like Battlefield 1 did a lot better than a typical BF normally would. You gotta remember that the COD that year was Infinite Warfare + MW Remaster. COD simply had no fucking hype that year. BF1 was also a painfully simplified Battlefield ( limited customizations, promoted run and gun). IMO, it appealed to the COD crowd. There was no way BFV with its significant changes was going to achieve similar numbers when Blackout hype was as high as it was.
Its a slight shame because BFV is a fun game. They just happened to put themselves up against a refreshed COD and a Rockstar game. We now rely on EA to determine what degree of support BFV will get over the next 2+ years. Hopefully it works out.
@ghosts4ever: FO76 release will place zero nails in any coffin. Its a mediocre MP spinoff of a strong IP. It is apparent that the majority of Bethesda fans are in with SP games and will gladly buy the NEXT ES, FO, or any other single player project.
This was an interesting project that is not starting off as well as they would like. Bethesda won't be abandoning this game anytime soon and will still release single player games in the future.
@vfighter: I doubt they are worried about hardware momentum at this point. The software attach rate and PS+ retention is probably high enough as it is. People who are buying a PS4 this late in the generation are not the same people that are going to buy a PS5 at launch.
The first two hours were boring enough for me to go back and finish AC Odyssey. Glad its selling well but I really hope there's more to it then just looking pretty.
