* 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
