Tbh, the only good thing that came out of them was the (then revolutionary for consoles) online play. Other than that, they really did nothing to add to the industry, oh, except being a contributing factor to what I like to call the "Shooter Purge" last gen.

IMO, of course.

Absolutely.
Microsoft is the heart and soul of the gaming industry.
They revolutionized online console gaming, brought the indie development community out of the shadows, and became the quality leader for 1st party titles.

Microsoft did for gaming what Industrial Light & Magic did for the film industry.

Microsoft is the heart and soul of the gaming industry.

Why hello teehee.

I don't like their first party games, but I like their third party support. I personally think another company has contributed more to the gaming industry and have stronger first party ips.

So I respectfully disagree.

Yes they have. Why you ask? Cause competition. Everyone harps on the Xbox and everything they tried doing with the One but they do realize Sony wanted to do the same thing but knew people weren't going to be happy about it so they decided against it.

If Microsoft was removed then Sony would have a strangle hold on the console market as far as hardcore gaming is concerned and would have a tight grip on their console polices knowing you have no direct competition to run to.

So Microsoft creates competition which is good for the consumer so YES they have changed the gaming industry for the better.

"No" is winning by a pretty large margin. Interesting.

How so? We already knew about the huge number of trolls and their alternate accounts on this board. Or if they're not trolls then 67% of people don't like online functionality on their consoles...
