Is Microsoft No Longer Capable of Producing Quality Games?

Halo's been milked to death. The first two were instant classics, the third was pretty good, but it was downhill from there.

Forza Horizon was a huge disappointment

and the last of the big three appears to have fallen. Gears has a 79 "professional" metascore, with an embarrassing 5.6 user score.

They refuse to bring new IPs, and have been running their only 3 games into the ground. It's pretty disappointing, considering the games they had last gen. They were slept on, but they had a large handful that were good.

I know right?

I assume you refer to their first-party development houses. Yeah, they're capable. But there's only one body that can say "Do it!" when those very developers come up with ideas, and that's Microsoft themselves.

And guess what? Why should they? Taking one quick look at their decisions in the latter quarter of this generation tells you one thing: they've become complacent; not unlike Sony and the PS2.

Yeah don't mention the review scores for Halo or Forza, that would disprive your point.

Gears is fantastic as well.

Uh, oh...have our first butthurt fanboy.

I don't go strictly by scores, but I don't think anyone can deny that the quality has been in decline during these rehashes. You can only microwave the leftovers so many times before it tastes like s***

Well it's obvious they're gearing up for next gen. It's not like ninty or Sony is bringing out quality exclusives either
