* Broken games

* Firmware setbacks


* Not as good as last gen’s OS (Xbox One esp)



* Network setbacks

* Forcing players into pub matches rather than allowing clans

* New console offerings mid gen


* Confusion in marketplace

* Are they upgrades or money grabs?



* Pay to Win implemented


* Endless grind vs being able to pay to get to a level

* Game mechanics feel dull and compel you to pay to reach that next par

* Need to pay to keep up with kids that don’t have as much going on in real world


* Especially onerous when paying full price for the base game
