Bethesda makes crap buggy broken games. ESII is the last great RPG they made. The west can't design good melee combat for shit. With very few exceptions, western devs are pretty bad at melee combat and Bethesda's is about as stiff and aged as they get. Fallout is the same game over and over. The best FO games were 1-2.
Buggy? Yes. Crap? No.
Morrowind back in 2002 was absolutely amazing, playing that on the old Geforce 4 Ti with pixel shader effects? You were on the cutting edge.
Fallout 3 and New Vegas were solid games in their own right, some good story telling.
Sorry you didn't enjoy them, but -millions- of other gamers did and still do.
Never cared for Halo.
Personal choice, doesn't stop it from being an amazing franchise loved by 10's of millions of gamers.
Sorry you couldn't get into it, some fantastic story telling to be had.
I liked Doom 2016 but Eternal was a massive downgrade and letdown. I didn't ask for Doom May Cry. I like Doom. I like DMC, I don't like them merged. I like Wolfenstien more but after the last 2 entires I lost faith in the series.
Doom did start before 2016, same with Wolfenstein, they have history.
Sadly the Switch ports were a massive downgrade, but the best place to play them is definitely PC.
Gears is old and tired and been bested since. 5 had a pathetic excuse for an open world. It felt like a desperate attempt to revive a stagnant series. VanQuish is a better TPS and the best TPS ever mechanically and I just can never go back to something as slow and plodding as Gears now. Splatoon a series I'm meh on sells better than Gears these days.
Still a fun romp.
Gears 5 technicals made it a showstopper, VanQuish is also a solid game, but it's old and outdated now, having released in 2010.
The remaster cleans it up, but still can't hold a candle to newer games.
Splatoon is great fun.
I think you are in the mindset of not enjoying the actual game, but comparing a game to another game, which destroys any enjoyment you might get by telling yourself "I could be playing this instead".
Mario kart a single entry outsells the entire Forzra franchise and I'd take Cruis'n Blast/Hotshot Racing/Fast RMX/Horizon Chase Turbo over Forza. Give me 90s arcade racing over another bland sim game,cars are shiny,environments look real...ugh all looks the same now, I fall asleep playing them at least I did on 360 and Driveclub on PS4. Played Forza. Boring to me. Maybe if MS brought back PGR then maybe be interested. I liked the Kudos system. 90s style arcade games often went for more imagination and fun envirments then look how real this cliff looks.
Mario Kart 8 on Switch though is just a re-release of an old game... It's 10 year Birthday is only a couple years away.
It's also technically not in the same genre as Forza.
If Forza isn't for you, that's fine, but it's hitting some very big industry highs at the moment and shifted millions of copies with endless praise, it's a quality title which is why it's industry renowned at the moment, it looks amazing, it plays great.
Sorry you can't enjoy an amazing game.
I would actually like to see a return of "Blur" I thoroughly enjoyed that game from Activision.
If MS gives me a Killer Instinct 2 from Iron Galaxy and don't do a season model. I'd be interested. If MS would fund a new true Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey Sequels. (BD on DS doesn't count) if MS and SEGA are on such good terms. Fund Virtua Fighter 6. A new Jet Set Radio.
I agree the Season model for Killer Instinct was convoluted and confusion.
But if you buy the complete game, it's probably one of the best fighters out there, it's very polished and fun.
JRPG's need more support on Xbox, it's one of the big reasons why I own a Switch and Playstation 5.
Jet Set got a "spiritual successor" with sunset overdrive, if you enjoyed Jet Set, give that game a chance.
Don't forget you also have titles like Fable, Ori, Sea of Thieves, State of Decay, Flight Simulator.
Xbox, Playstation and PC aren't lacking games, be a little more open minded and a little less critical and you might start to enjoy the differences they bring to the table... Would be a terrible industry if everything was carbon copies of each other...
