Yeah, I have the same problem. Didn't finish even one game last year but started a lot (Gears 5, The Outer Worlds, Pillars of Eternity, Wolfenstein 2 and so on...)

Sometimes I sit here and think half an hour about which game I want to play more and in the end I play nothing, start a multiplayer match (mostly Apex) or start the next god damn game just to stop playing it after a few hours to have one more unfinished game^^

My motivation to finish games is non-existent for a while now even though I almost liked most games I played the last year a lot.

I'm 35 now, maybe it's the midlife crisis haha

Same here but that's nothing new. I already felt like this during the 360 era.

Usually it's the best to start a game without thinking about it.

Still got so many where I only played one or two levels...
At least I do manage to finish games but it's rarely something above 10 hours in length. Recently started AC Odyssey, RDR2 and Valkyria Chronicles 4. That's going to take a while.

I've reflected on my viewpoint a bit. Where this could be an issue is with the lack of assumed SSD.

In theory the lessor consoles can load large world areas just the same as the Series X albeit with lessor graphical fidelity. In practice, as worlds get too complex (as opposed to too big, as games don't actually load the whole map at once), they're likely to struggle. Realistically, there's a point at which load times on non-SSD consoles would become impractical, and at THAT stage it is possible devs will stop pushing the envelope on the Series X. Hope I am wrong.

Yeah, SSD vs standard hard drive is a concern for sure with this cross-gen compatibility on Xbox. Games need to be built from the ground up to take full advantage of an SSD, or else you don't get the full benefit of the SSD. There are plenty of current gen games on PC that if you install them on an SSD, you only get maybe 3-4x faster load times than on a standard hard drive, even though an m.2/NVMe SSD should be capable of much, much faster loads. While Sony has been talking about things like 5 second initial load times and near instant fast travel and respawn load times on PS5, we could be looking at much slower load times on Series X if the games are designed so that they can still run on the slow 5200 RPM hard drives in XB1, we may be looking at like 4x slower loads than PS5.

The big CPU gap between Series X and XB1 is another potential big issue. You can't really push CPU focused things like AI, open world character counts, and physics effects forward if you are being limited by archaic Jaguar CPU's, which were already underpowed 7 years ago.

I do think Everwild will release on the first half of 2021.
Xbox launch line up:
Halo Infinit
Gears Tactics: Console Edition
Gears 5: Edition X
Forza Motorsport 8
Smaller games
3rd party games
Whatever released on the current year will be playable day one ofcourse
A game from Xbox studios or Global Publishing every two months starting February.

@Bold, that reminds me, I'm pretty sure Morgoth, the Gears leaker over on Era said something to that effect, that they're planning on doing something slightly more than just a resolution boost for Series X, they're planning on supporting the game until Gears 6 so will make it feel fresh on Series X as well, so sorta a 'relaunch'

It would be kinda cool if we got some single-player DLC, while I enjoyed the story I still don't like the big gap in the story between Act II - Act III.

It is the perfect game to display at the hardware reveal event. You can show the hardware capabilities and the difference between One S, One X and series X. You don't reveal new game and take away something from E3 which will take place soon after.



Big Season Pass Sale going on right now.
Got myself the Shadow of the Tomb Raider "season pass". Still waiting for the Far Cry 5 one to get a little cheaper.



@Poll, I voted no for now, E3 is still a major event that generates a lot of hype, EA and Nintendo may have 'left' but they still use the hype generated by E3 week, Microsoft is kinda already stepping away from E3 since they started hosting their conferences in the Microsoft Theatre so I think they should just slowly expand on that overtime.

Digital Foundry aren't too happy either.

Makes me question my initial answer, I still don't mind much for launch but now I'm thinking they should ditch Xbox One in 2021. Hurry up and upgrade those XCloud server racks to Lockhart, that should be enough power I think but won't cost as much as upgrading them to Series X, I do think a reason they're taking a while is in part due to XCloud.
