Before you start typing, let's try to take this a civilized approach. I can't think of a worst year in terms of First party experiences for a platform but let's all remember a platform is more than just exclusive games. I thought this year was actually pretty good for gamepass and 3rd parties but with the release of Pentiment it got me thinking about the 1st party output this year which includes...
- As Dusk Falls (MS IP, 3rd party dev)
- Deathloop (new port)
- Grounded (Full release)
- Ghostwire Tokyo (Not on xbox)
On the face, it's not too shabby but only Pentiment is a new exclusive from a MS 1st party dev that's a new experience.
Edit: Okay I went a bit hyperbolic with "gaming history" lol Kinda hard to do that when there's been a lot of failed consoles and platforms, but is it the worst Xbox lineup? Think that's the more interesting comparison at hand.
looking at Xbox's past years there's some low points, Kinect era 2012 is a contender
- Fable Heroes
- Halo 4
- Kinect games (including Fable the Journey)
Also Xbox One era 2017
- Forza motorsport 7
- Super Lucky's Tale
- Gears 5
- Crackdown 3
2017 the strongest contender I think but at least all 3 of these years had a new AAA game. If we are excluding previously released games 2022 still ranks as no1.Last edited by ice - on 01 November 2022
