And for clarity: Bloodborne > Ori/SSOD > the rest

Bloodborne has been the only true exclusive to move consoles thus far this generation and would be the first PS4 game I pick up when I purchase the PS4.

I would place Sunset Overdrive and/or Ori over the Halo collection until Halo 5 for Microsoft and Bloodborne over The Order.

And while I am mainly a MS gamer, even the Sony gamers are getting fed up on the exclusive front.

Dude, Sunset Overdrive was absolute trash, you have to admit that, but I'll give you Ori, that game is fantastic, and proof that Indies deserve respect when done correctly.

As far as Sony exclusives, I think you're underselling how much Second Son pushed PS3 users to buy a PS4, now capturing the opposing market, that won't work like a Bloodborne would, but it's still something. I do agree that AAA games-wise Sont is lagging on exclusives, but their extensive indie lineup helps them out. For the record, I have both systems and enjoy both (presently Forza for XBOne and The Show for PS4, , which is an essential for any baseball nut, are getting a majority of my playtime along with the old standbys of FIFA and Borderlands).

How was Sunset trash? One of the most fun games thus far this generation. Plus it's just downright fun to explore and grab the collectables.

I wasn't a fan of the E3 trailer for it but once it was close to release I decided to pick it up and have loved it.

I just recently had my first baby born so there's zero time to play anything. But once he's a bit older and sleeping through the night I really need to get through Bloodborne and The Witcher 3....

Thankfully I am still able to game on the 3DS so I've been trying to go through Xenoblade

I don't know man, I just could never get into it, I'll have to throw it in again and see if I feel any differently. I hate games that try way too hard to be "different" when they aren't at all, and it's really obvious that whatever intern wrote that story was just trying to be tongue in cheek about the gaming industry and it got to the point where I just couldn't take it anymore. Plus I've never been a fan of the Dead Rising "random horde of bots assaulting you through a map" type of gameplay.

If you're a fan of exploration, what're your favorite game worlds? I loved the Just Cause 2 map, just so much variety, and it was really the star of the show there seeing as how the voice acting was done by 12 year olds faking accents and the story was a throwaway; AC Black Flag because there has never been anything like it before; Forza Horizon 2, the world makes that my favorite driving game of all time; and the Oblivion map, more for WHEN it came out and how advanced it was at the time.

Oh for sure, I wish they would've just branded that as "Pirates" instead of an AC game, that was one of their marketing plans....would work now that they've proved how much fun it can be.
