Also Microsoft doesn’t really make any must have games either
There are a lot of games that are great if you enjoy the genre(s) and/or theme(s), as well as several titles that repeatedly show up on various "Top x games of all time" lists. But none of them are "must have games".
There are also a lot of impactful historical milestones in gaming and ActiBlizz certainly has quite a bunch under their belt. Same with Microsoft. But none of those are "must have games" either, regardless of who made/published them.
No one is being literal here, people don’t need a game like they need air, water or pizza. The expression just refers to high quality titles that also tend to sell well.
My comment was a bit of a snipe at Microsoft who have been promising a lot with first party content for their new consoles. They’re currently stuck with no big releases on the calendar again. Maybe next year!This comment was edited on Aug 1, 2022, 15:36.
