Im loving 2k14. Im also liking what I see in Madden for the first time in I cant remember maybe 10? Im not disappointed in anything, I think microsoft could have taken a little longer and fixed some of the issues but these days we customers are paying to be the beta testers. So I know theyll figure out a patch sooner or later. Talking to my gaming console, priceless. I havent used my controller in two days lol!

I got an Xbox One along with NBA 2K14, Madden, Forza 5.

Best: NBA2K14.

The most enjoyable game I got out of the 3. I only play quick games. The dependency on acquiring VC has completely turned me off from playing MyCareer and MyGM modes. The nagging online issues are still present in the next gen which is extremely disappointing.

Forza 5 is in the middle for me. I'm not a race car fan and bought this game purely off of the looks and game play impressions. I honestly don't think the graphics are THAT great. They're nice, but I'm noticing jagged edges and the color of the cars/reflections seem a bit bland to me. It's a fun game to play, Drivatar is pretty neat feature, but not something I can sit hours on end and play.

Most Disappointing: Madden.

Easily the weakest visuals out of the 3. Same familiar gameplay feeling - which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but the minor upgrades doesn't give me a next-gen vibe at all. I hope Madden 15 brings more to the table next season.

The Bugs and Lack of editing options really disappoint me. Fifa 14 is the only PS4 title I've played so far and although it is good, the whole experience is pretty underwhelming so far.

Best Launch: Fifa 14... The game feels completely different for the better.

Biggest Jump: NBA 2k14's graphics. it's insane. I love 2k14 and MyGM is nice until the take the reliance of VC out of it the mode will never shine.

Most unexpected: PowerStar Golf, this is the most addictive game for next sports titles. The need to patch in Online Multiplayer, but this game is worth the 19.99 for what it offers as a single player title

I love having the Xbox one with these games. Even with 2k14's NG missteps I think its better than CG 2k. it plays better and the graphics, oh my. I'm a casual FIFA player. i usually never buy 2 years in a row. I bought 13, but 14 NG is heads and tails better. The defense is great the pacing is great, the AI is fantastic and it feels more like real life futbol. And Powerstar Golf is so unexpectedly good. It's simple to pick up and a very fun casual golf game that can be challenging. Especially striving for all gold medals. But they need to add online multiplayer my friends and I want to play this game with each other so bad.

Best Launch Sports Game: FIFA 14
The game seem to have the least problems of all the next-gen sports game and seem to have the best introduction.

Most Disappointing & Worst: NBA Live 14
Not too much to say about this game, but I was expecting a decent game with a next-gen team play and everyone knew how that ended up.

I pre ordered a ps4 when Amazon's went live. I cancelled that preorder once all the day one games where announced. Why? Simply because it made no sense to buy one now if you are heavily into sports gaming. There are 3 sports games that have been trending upward. FIFA, NHL, and MLB the show. Of those 3, only FIFA was a launch title. The other 2 are next spring & fall. It made more sense to wait until next spring. 2K is what it is every year and Madden & Live have been trending downward this entire generation. Add to that the server issues that plague both consoles, I'm glad I made that decision.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,,,,,WWW.Rush64.COM
