I think the "hero-status" of xobox is not unsung at all. As threads like this proof. I see it everywhere, online and with a lot of my friends - everybody seems hyped about xbox right now. But to me, this is soley justified to a certain extent. Like b.c. is super cool to have and game pass is incredible value.
I think the criticism of Xbox's current output of games since launch is definitely warranted and it's why I mentioned it when I made the thread. I would say the only reason Xbox has been getting somewhat of a pass is because Game Pass has pretty much alleviated any issues because anyone who has a XSX really isn't complaining about lack of games to play. There have been releases that might not be new games but new to Xbox like Dragon Quest 11, Yakuza collection, Octopath, Dragon Quest builders 2, MLB The show 21, and all have released on Game Pass. Along with EA Play and numerous other titles, it's honestly overwhelming. I think it's hard for those who don't have the system to fully understand because all they look at are, what exclusive games have come out instead of the full package.
