Blockbuster. Cinematic. Mainstream. These are things I am no longer enthralled by. As we prepare our minds and our bank accounts for the looming next-generation consoles, I cannot help but feel jaded. This promotional video for Xbox One's lineup, some of which will be available at launch, some of which won't, just isn't doing it for me. And that kills me. The full list of confirmed games is a slight improvement.
Titanfall looks like good, solid fun and scratches that certain mech itch -- but it's also coming to PC. Dead Rising 3, a title that I should be freaking out over, has felt "off" ever since it was first announced (though I'm hoping it'll eventually click). Insomniac Games' colorful take on the apocalypse in Sunset Overdrive is too much of a question mark, at this point, even if I am on board with the vision. Maybe I've just fallen out of love with big-budget gaming.
Here. It's your turn. Take a look at the lineup below and share your gut reaction.

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag (Ubisoft, Ubisoft)
