    "This game is great if you like a game that has a plot. It has additional features that give more than fifty hours of story time. I think the concept is good for the role-play type game lovers. I personally like feeling like I am the actual character rather than just playing it. "

    "There are so many games for the xbox that could be the solution to this topic. While Metal Gear Solid V is a great game, it is far from the best. It has it's moments but lacks in replay-ability, game mechanics and graphics. There are many other games I would rather play than this."

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that the iconic Xbox logo was made as such due to the artist's markers being stolen? That's right, Horace Luke, the artist in charge of designing the console's logo, had a set of fancy markers. These markers were then stolen by his coworkers, leaving him with the "color green that nobody wanted", as Xbox co-creator Seamus Blackley stated. Before its success, the vision for Xbox began in 1998, founded by four engineers from Microsoft. These engineers disassembled a laptop and constructed a video game console. This console is a Microsoft Windows-based prototype and was named after a shorter version of the DirectXbox.

Presently, there are hundreds of games being released for the Xbox platform yearly, some of which received critical success. Additionally, some popular games that are exclusive to the console have been released. Most of these games have been garnering high ratings on different gaming websites. The genre of these games varies, from first-person shooters to open-world role-playing games. Besides games, some later-generation Xbox consoles also have the capability to play DVD movies. A remote which was sold separately was also required for movie playbacks on the console.

    "AC origins is a phenomenal game, but like any game it has its flaws. The story of origins is by no means a bad story, but it feels rushed. There are events in the story that happened far too quickly and some of the characters felt a bit bland, but overall i thought the story was decently written and executed. "

There is a ton of variety to the gameplay and you'll spend countless hours trying to master every character and learning how to strategize against your opponents. The replay value is enormous and I can honestly say that Overwatch has been the best $60 bucks I've spent in a long time."
