Burnt out, tired, bored, etc of any and all open world games. It's just annoying at this point..not everygame needs a map...not every game needs to show damage points when u hurt an enemy. Back in the day, that would classify as an RPG. Now, everything a rpg lol. FoH. Give me that 5 hour Gears of Fucking War 1 campaign anyday, I'm happy.

Also, going back to what the OP saying with AC Odyssey I personally think RPG elements/terrible story is what killed off the AC franchise for me. The last simple AC was syndicate, after that they went full RPG. So I think we are on the same page.

On xbox specifically, does anyone else have trouble finding matches? Ranked or Casual?

If you love games and able to afford both, get em. Each has their pros/cons.

For me, I use my xbox one for all games except for fighters. Ps4 is exclusives and fighters only.

It's really cool having both, not going to lie. You'll benefit heavily. Whatever choice you make, enjoy gaming.

Thanks for this..lack of japanese support is the main reason I even bought a ps4, x1 is my primary system. I will most deff take this survey, Not all xbox fans play shooters/racers. This is good to see.

yeh it's a great console...

my favorite looking game is Forza Horizon 4. Friends and family literally thought it was a car commercial.

LMAO bro the same thing happened with me. I was playin FH4 and my folks thought it was a car ad too, I looked at them and said "The X is a monster".

UPDATE: The Supersampling is amazing, I also play on a 23" 1080p monitor Acer until I get a 4k monitor. It looks so crisp, though it's a 1080p monitor, it's so hard to find jaggies anywhere.

Also, Final Fantasy XIII just became back compat, and it x enhanced!!!

Honestly, I can't thank everyone enough for the feedback. I bought the X and a new 4k tv, and soon a 4k monitor. It's quite the difference.

The best game so far is Gears 4, it looks immaculate. I play about 20 hours of Gears per week so it's quite a treat to see.

Killer Instinct and Injustice 2 really pop. All the capes and armor in Injustice 2 seem more realistic, Killer Instinct is just beautiful I'll leave it at that. DBFZ somehow looks even better, it's cleaner overall. MvC Infinite is a lot more refined thanks to the enhanced patch, Character models and environments are 10x clearer.

Halo 5 is also another great example. It has even more polish than before, I was shocked lol. Ofcourse, it's smooth as ever at 60fps as well no dips at ALL. The upclose view of the gun is quite a sight, very shiny and slick graphics.

Forza Horizon 4 is a no brainer, we all know the great those graphics are. It runs smooth, I play it on the visual over performance mode, I know I was puzzled at myself at first but it's so pretty though. It's Autumn season right now, and wow.

Destiny 2 is not bad at all, everything is a lot cleaner. I noticed a difference right away.

So, As you can see I'm a new X one X owner, and here to stay. See you online!

My folks always allowed me to play my games, my main excuse was I wanted be an illustrator when I grew up. I'm a graphic designer now so I guess it worked. I see no problems with kids playing video games as long as they are doing well in school and spending time with their loved ones (real friends or family, not a crew you go out with and get drunk with, etc). Family and video games is life, and I wouldn't want it any other way.

Playing this on 1080p monitor in Visuals mode it's still so damn crisp.

This game's presentation is in a league of it's own.

I've been gaming for over 2 decades, and I must say this game truly is a masterpiece.

Assuming even an ounce of actual shits you care, that anything I could tell you could even remotely change your mind...Why does Microsoft Studios have to do what Nintendo and Sony does? Xbox has a fan base who likes certain games and Xbox gives it to them. If you don't like them, then that's your problem. Certainly there is something to be said about not having something all the Ponies and Nintendo fans want, but Xbox isn't a Japanese Waifu Box. Sony pushed out a couple solid releases, and people want Xbox pronounced dead, yet Sony is tapped out so much they can't even do a PSX cause they couldn't possibly keep this up. Days Gone will not be a God of War or Horizon Zero Dawn.

Answer I'd give someone actually curious:

They released Ori and Blind Forest, Super Lucky's Tales and Cuphead, some of the best platformers out there. They revived many Rare games with Rare Replay, along of bringing back Voodoo Vince and Phantom Dust, along with countless 360 era games, including remasters of GoW1 and nearly every Halo game. They had amazing non-1st party exclusives like ReCore, Dead Rising 3 and 4, Titanfall, Quantum Break, Ryse Son of Rome, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Sunset Overdrive. Forza has been the absolute best racing games on the market that only got better. PUGB has been one of the best shooters in years starting the battleground fad. Killer Instinct hasn't been absolute best fighter but still a good fighter. Gears and Halo are their bread and butter, but have released quality "streamer" multiplayer like games with Sea of Thieves and State of Decay 2. Yeah Xbox could have done their own GoW and HZD, but they didn't, plenty of 3rd party games make those games.

I raise my glass to you, that was beautifully written.

State of Decay 2 and Forza Horizon 4 + Multi Plats is more than enough gaming for this year. Come next year you got Gears 5, that's going to be another 250+ hours of my life like it was with the previous entry lol.
