Cool to see that it's adding a weather system. Would be nice to see that get used in the main series with Forza 6.

I hardly understood any of what I just read, but I was super fascinated by every word of it.

Call of Duty for me. No question.

I generally try not to be one of those people that bashes the series, as they seem to still be generally well made games, and clearly a lot of people still like the series, but between tiring of playing it year, after year, and just a general decrease in having people to play multiplayer games with, my interest in that series is pretty much down to zero.

Occasionally I see a piece of footage that looks fun, and it makes me want to try out whatever the latest game in the series is, but I know I'd play it for like an hour, then never touch it again.

I haven't, and very rarely, if ever, will. I understand why people didn't like what Microsoft was proposing, and I'm fine with the fact that they changed it back (though not having to switch discs would've been really nice), but it never really bothered me personally.

Yeah me to, anyway: just buy your stuff digitally, i bought BF4, Ryze and DR3 from the store. Works like a charm.

I wish I could, but bandwidth caps suck.

As I expected, I was the only person that put Powerstar Golf on their list. The other game I expected to be alone on (MLB 13: The Show), surprisingly had two other votes.

Great list overall. Not one I personally agree with (I actively disliked most of Bioshock: Infinite), but as an overall consensus, a good list.

I'm convinced that no one actually likes Gone Home, they just want to be seen liking it.

I know this sounds dickish to some people but I share your belief in that. I can't really say any of you guys don't, but people I know and talk to seem to all never talk about it much when they were playing it, never playing it again, but suddenly having it on their GOTY list and seem to have trouble saying why it's even on there.

It was fairly short, and linear, so I think that people not talking about it while they were playing it (given that it was easily playable in one sitting), and not going back to it again (given that it wasn't going to be different a second time) doesn't mean that people didn't enjoy it.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I legitimately enjoyed every moment I spent with it.

@joshwent They said that after the 24 hours was up, you wouldn't have access to your games until you signed back into Xbox Live. That was it. Like @isomeri said, it wasn't so much about piracy, as it was making sure you didn't install the same copy of the game on all of your friends' machines, since they were not requiring a disc for the game to be played.

Glad I've got a couple more weeks to try stuff before finalizing my list. I've got a bunch of stuff that I need to play more of.

the PS4 sold 1 million units in 24 hours. While the XBox One sold 900k Units in 7 days.

Not a fair comparison, because the 1 million number that Sony announced was for North America, whereas the Xbox number is from NPD, which only covers the US.

I feel pretty safe in saying if you count all of North America, Microsoft likely sold over a million as well.

I don't doubt that Sony did better, but those two numbers are not 1:1 comparisons.
