I feel as though I no longer want anything to do with Xbox. I feel like the only reason I even use it is because I am locked in a subscription and so I keep buying games I don't want to play. Well I just bought the Wii U and have never had so much fun before. Once my subscription ends in February, I think I may just permanently retire my Xbox and all my games and stupid peripherals which just take up a space and are a huge waste of time. Halo 4 didn't do it for me, nothing about Xbox even makes me want to get excited anymore. I feel like I was brainwashed into wasting my time and money.

Because the xbox has nothing other than FPS games, and Cocky of Docky (going to use this term more often, thank you) is only for the xbox?
Something, something, something
Bro at least wait till aliens colonial marines comes out, oh wait that's on the WiiU too. And I agree Halo 4 was garbage.

Hehe, yeah those were also my days ;) . But the thing is game today don't have shitty game play mechanics. They are actually a lot better than they were 'back in the days' game play when it comes to game play. The problem today that developer don't care to improve mechanics any more. They're to content with they already have. It works and sales so why change it, right? They don't dare to try something new (game play wise) because it might fail horribly, and most people don't care if they play the same damn game over and over again so that's why games like CoD is successfully.

Maybe you're just seeing the 360 as "old and ugly" and will be changing your tune once the "new and shiny" nextbox comes along.
Maybe nextbox will be more of the same old. Only time will tell.
I'm a PS3 and PC man myself. Never owned an Xbox in my life, the only times I've played one are at my friend's house when he forces me to play Call of Duty with him.

You just answered it, if it works, then why change it? Most gamers don't like unnecessary changes to games, especially if it affects gameplay. Tweaks are okay, but massive changes are a roll of the dice, and more times than not, it ends up badly.

Ah yes, the classic hipster argument of accusing game developers of not trying new things, when they have no interest or knowledge of other genres in the first place. Also, game developers are a for-profit business first, so naturally they go with what works and milk it for all it's worth, it's really no different than Apple who make a new iPhone every 6 months or so.
Finally, what specifically do you want them to do? There is a reason why big game companies have different developers for different games, no sense in putting a developer who makes FPS games change course and make an RPG if they don't want to.
and most people don't care if they play the same damn game over and over again so that's why games like CoD is successfully.
Once again, if it isn't broke, don't fix it. More importantly, there are still plenty of fans who are more than willing to throw down $60 or more to play COD, and if they want to, then why deny them the opportunity to do so? I'm no fan of Team Fortress or Valve for that matter, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't let fans buy their games anymore than a COD hater deny a fan of said game.
Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.
Only games on my radar for the 360 at this point are BattleBlock Theater and GTA V. Other than that, I agree with you completely. I still need to pick up a Wii U, though.

But what if you aren't a fan of hundreds of Minecraft clones and thousands of "look, this game has BOOBS!" games?
That was a great post. Right Zach?
I'm really just seeing no reason to actually have an Xbox 360 anymore, just doesn't seem to be offering anything unique apart from Halo. I still like Halo, but PC just seems like a much better option and I'm considering saving up to build one.

Well yeah I had fun, but now it seems like I'm holding on to the old memories of fun instead of continuing to actually enjoy it.
I had a PS3 and it died within 2 years...I bought an xbox and havent looked back sense. My only gripe like others have said is that you have to pay for xbox live. And most games that come out for one comes out of the other unless its an exclusive like Left 4 dead is for xbox and god of war is PS3. Not a wii fan...as far as im concerned if I want to play real basketball or football Ican just go outside and play it...if not ill play madden.
