Basically just Batman? Witcher and MKX look great byt I just don't think they're for me while full price.

I'm kinda hoping smaller games will come out and surprise me. Eg. I picked up HELLDIVERS on a whim and have been loving it. It was pretty under my radar and I was all hyped for Hotline Miami 2, which wasn't very good. :( :(

That's weird. I see people infrequently but regularly. I've seen everything, ds's, psp's and vita's. All on public transit.

Really the point is that there are so many fucking stunning games out there, large and small.

Wow, never thought I'd see that name again... Cool?

It was a neat if fairly humdum game with some very nice music. Which, with a puzzle game, is maybe all I need.

@corevi: I skimmed the bios and listened to all the audio stuff. That's what I find damning. I don't remember any of it. It felt so thrown in and lifeless it barely made an impact, I even remember reading/listening to that stuff at the time and saying to myself

"Uhh, ok? That's it? That's all you're putting out there? ....sure...., ok." and then I forgot about it.

Which is a pretty terrible reaction for a player to have in the final, revelatory moments.

AND I want to re-iterate. I QUITE LIKE the game, the story just flubbed it in my eyes.

I played Transistor front to back three times, %100'ing it.

I still don't have a clear idea of exactly what went on. I could take a pretty good guess but that's not good enough. I don't know really why Red lost her voice, I don't really know what the white dudes were, what the hell was the Spine? I don't even know why neither main character felt weird AT ALL about what was going on; almost like they had seen something like this coming. Worst of all: I'm not comfortable not knowing all of these things. I love not knowing things in stories. But you have to know SOME things and Transistor dropped the ball big time on that stuff.

Bastion just clicked

But I quite liked Transistor, just exclusively for the gameplay and ambiance.

In general, I think the consoles take too much shit, with the Xbox One being the most prominent example... ...I don't really get the appeal of trashing other forms of gaming, but that's just me. Let's note that we're still pretty early in this console cycle as well, so any "verdicts" at this point about this console generation (including everything I just posted) are a bit premature. I seem to recall this same "disappointment" at this point in the last-gen cycle, and the one before that, and so on. Yet, by the end, most of these consoles had a bunch of classics which barely resembled early/launch stuff. I expect the same this generation, and they're mostly off to a good start overall.

What This Guy/Gal said. We're off to a good start. I would say a great start. But that's me.

Warp is a game i loved that no one seemed to care about .

That was a game I was down for but ended up ignoring it due to lukewarm reviews. If there weren't so many damn games out there I probably have played it.

Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts was an amazing game. There is a Platinum Hits version of the game so people must have played it. I just didn't hear much about it and the people I tried to convince to play it wanted nothing to do with it.

Nuts and Bolts was amazing. I did everything in that game and spent weeks online with a friend trading blueprints of vehicles back and forth. It will never, ever happen but I would kill for a follow up. DAMN YOU ALL FOR BEING SO CLOSED MINDED!
