The Batman games wish they were as good as the LotR games, and I love the Batman games. I want a damn Jedi game that basically uses the SoM template.

I liked the Batman games better, but it's about the best 3rd person action game engine around. I didn't bother with the second Mordor game, as I got bored with the first one, but its a weird thing to complain about.

Unlike dying 400 times in a row to the same Dark Souls boss, which is full of variety

So Black Friday got me and I decided to snag an Xbox One, my first console since the PS2. Generally I enjoyed sports games and platformers when I did play, I'm not much for shooters or RPGs. I plan on checking out EA Access and the backwards compatible 360 games since I don't plan on sinking a ton of time/money into gaming. Any other games that I should be sure to check out?

Sunset Overdrive is probably dirt cheap now. It was a launch title, and a quintessential one. It's a trip.

does it really matter anymore? I mean i have a ps4 too but i can't imagine there's any real appreciable difference, especially if you have very little time to play in the first place.

I don't really care about that. This is my first Xbox and I had a PS1 and PS2, but my social circle that I'd be playing with is on the XB1 so that's the choice.

If you’re primarily playing online, that makes sense.

I just figured he would want to play The Show, and since that's PS4-only that would make it the better choice for that alone.

I think Horizon would have been the consensus Game of the Year if the Switch didn't exist

Not to get real Derwood on your asses but after 11 seasons as Tampa Bay's GM, I finally managed to win a world series and have won my way into a decent payroll even though my lame-ass fans are still not loyal (but they do keep coming to the games at least)
