Xbox Series X is the best console for FPS/shooters in 2021. 5 exclusives worth getting excited about

Xbox is now the FPS and RPG console.

Did Sony change the trigger shape or material at all except for the trigger resistance things on the new Dualsense? Cause they are still trash if they didn't.
Ds4 triggers were fantastic though. My fav triggers.

The question I have is did series changed shoulder buttons and triggers since I have slim controller and lb rb are terrible and triggers are too smooth with no feedback are all.
Btw any idea if series controller work on old xbox one pc dongle?

I did very well with the Ps4 controller on BF 4 but got tons of cramping starting out. I would constantly have to pop off the R1/L1 and clean it and use pencil graphite to coat the connections so they don't stick as much. I just never feel like Sony controllers ever had real triggers, they always felt like buttons trying to be triggers. I luckily didn't have my analog sticks crumble like my friend did.

I would think the dongle still works since everything is cross platform.

I still love the 360 controllers bumpers and triggers placement more than the Xbox One's. Xbox One's triggers and bumpers feel slightly too high/big compared to easy to reach 360 controller. I actually haven't even tried the new Series X controller, just been using my old ones.

to be honest, Xbox is better at racing games, FPS, wrpg, and hopefully with aoe we will see more rts on consoles. Sony have a one category that they “own” - 3rd person interactive movies
I'd argue that PS has the better JRPGs, fighting games, platformers and horror games

Halo will definitely be a big exclusive, but others? Honestly, I never even heard about more than half of them.

I also wouldn't be surprised if Stalker 2 miss the deadline and won't be released in 2021. GSC games always had multiple delays.
Hilarious how far fanboys will go to discredit other brands because they feel the need t make their brand feel superior, very pathetic.

Xbox owners who have never played a STALKER game are in for one hell of a treat, it isn't just a shooter it will be far more than that.

Personally speaking, that fucking dual sense controller has put its spell onto me. Love modern warfare, but I keep playing Cold War because of the feels.

So, no - Xbox FPS ain’t cutting it for the enlightened!
Genuine questions here: is it even posible to have those trigger effects during competitive play or would it put you at a disadvantage? What is the general consensus?

I play with it multiplayer just fine. About 2:1 kd and 6:1 win ratio.

You’d really need to be a child or have abnormally weak fingers to genuinely be at a disadvantage from my perspective.

No matter what the fanboys say: GTFO with the added trigger pull time in mp.
Not only it will put you at a disadvantage but it's tiring and useless. Cute in sp tho.

Are you some kind of elite esports player shaving off every millisecond?

Tiring? get exercise if a video game controller is tiring you out.

The already excellent gunplay in cod just goes to the next level by feeling even more connected, that’s all there is to it.

Anybody that feels it out of place, probably needs a few more rounds in to adjust.

Dude, only thing that is hilarious is your hot take.

I'm definitely not a Sony / Nintendo fanboy. I not only owned Xbox console in the past, but one of the recent games I played was Gears 5 Hivebusters on PC and I loved every minute of it. Try again I guess? :messenger_tears_of_joy:

I honestly haven't heard about most of these games except of Stalker 2 and Halo. I also played older Stalker games and I know how many delays each of them had in the past, which I just acknowledged. A first one was the most notorious on that matter.

The only fanboy I see here is someone who is so protective of other brands that tries to post hot takes to make themselves feel superior. Very pathetic indeed.

Bullshit and I say that as owning CW on both consoles, what's your credentials? Oh wait a next-gen speculation faithful member... nevermind. And then he tells me to get exercise :messenger_tears_of_joy:

I don't get it. I just went to TrueAchievments to see what I have played in 2020. I didn't finish all of them, but here is the stuff I enjoyed:

2 JRPG, 8 ARPGs, 6 WRPGs, 6 Soulslike, 7 Open World Games, 4 Metroidvanias, 4 Rogue-likes, 5 Racing games, 9 side-scrollers, 2 Turn Based strategy games, 4 Online Sandbox games, 3 Survival games, 2 Competitive, 11 FPS, 2 TPS, 9 Puzzle Games, 1 Management Sim, 2 Sports games, 5 Racing games, a Space Flight Sim, A Fantasy Flight Sim, 2 Kids games, 7 point and click adventures, 3 survival games, 3 looter shooters and a freaking Tetris game.

The kicker is that I had to buy only very few of them.

When people say "Xbox only has Halo, Gears, and Forza..." they don't mean it literally.

Of course XBox has more games than that.

What they mean is those are the only noteworthy games (often AAA, exclusives) that move the needle for them. To many, third party games on XBox are irrelevant because they can play them all on a platform that receive needle moving exclusives on a regular basis.

I'm over FPS games. They're all the same at this point. I prefer to use Mouse and Keyboard when playing FPS anyway.

Oh well, it is really a matter of perspective. I bought Ps4 Pro to play Sony exclusives on it. Ended up playing 14 games over the years and I think only three of them were truly essential.
