The time has come in which console exclusives are starting to become phased out. You have Microsoft games going to the Switch and PlayStation games porting to PC. The end is nigh and soon this category will pretty much disappear. Over the years the handheld market vanished and usually towards the end of a console cycle this category is rather anemic, but it seems now systems need to be combined into just brand platforms. This category combines PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
Halo Infinite was a huge surprise that it turned out good. It feels like the original Halo Trilogy which is a good thing. The open world concept they can take or leave, but it at least works well and finding all the extra stuff is fun. The multiplayer is in its infancy still, but it’s solid for what’s here and is probably the best FPS multiplayer of the year. Why it took nearly 10 years for a good Halo to emerge is silly, but 343 seems to have gotten the hint with the extra year in the oven paying off.
