Our TakeEveryone who has touched Titanfall seems to walk away with a new outlook on life, or at least video games. Destiny seems to offer a similar revelation. Mario Kart 8 also seems to be turning some heads. Maybe that will be the game that turns everything around for the Wii U.

I can't say I"m that surprised by PS4 besting the Xbox One. I think Microsoft really screwed up the initial marketing to the point that even if it is an amazing console now, no one really quite knows what it is. Especially casual gamers who just hear about the consoles for two minutes on CNN, a lot of them probably don't even know Microsoft reversed all the policies. Everything was so convoluted when it was announced and in flux that I still don't know 100% how it compares to the PS4.
Forza 5 beat NFS and Drive Club. Good for Microsoft Studios
how is sonys best game a multi platform?
Not too impressive of a list in my opinion
How can sony win when there best game is multi platform? Makes no sense
Sony wins and Destiny gets twice on the board.
Microsoft should be thankful they have Titanfall me thinks...
Mario Kart will always be Nintendo's failsafe. If something goes wrong, release Mario Kart. Families will always look to Mario Kart for good fun.
Kind of bummed that Watch Dogs didn't appear on the list
