    I had no issues at all with the game, so I am just going on personal experience (plus our review).
    Website worked fine for me but here's the guts of it with links to the forum complains below:

    Warner Brothers’ forums are filled with complaints about the game including Error CE-34878-0 issues on the PS4, various issues with the Batmobile including this one on Xbox One, issues with cutscenes, Harley Quinn DLC problems on the PS4, Batman season pass problems, problems launching the game, problems with the game’s well-known Detective Mode, missing Flashpoint skin, problems with missions, problems saving the game, and more. The developer’s forums are full of complaints just a day after the game’s release.

    After my experience with being unable to progress in Arkham City (PC) due to the Mr. Freeze crash bug* I was wary of purchasing Arkham Knight - and i'm glad I didn't after seeing the initial bug list & absurd amount of DLC. Maybe once they release an all-in-one collection.

    *For those who don't know there's a bug in the PC version on nvidia cards where the final cut scene that's supposed to play upon defeating Mr. Freeze will crash the game and reset you to the beginning of the fight. You can't exit the area once the fight starts so you're stuck there indefinitely.
    Life, it's funny that way.

    I wouldn't say one guy with a batmobile glitch is really a load of issues with the Xbox One version though

    Glitches always happen within games of this size and complexity

    Exactly, like with Assassin's Creed Unity for example. I know a lot of people that had major issues with it, and some people (me included), had none or a very minute amount, that never affected the gameplay for us.

    Funny thing is, that reasoning is exactly why Arkham Knight got the second vote from me. While the vast majority of what I've heard about Arkham bugs have been either PC only or more frequent on PC, Arkham Origins did this on console. Huge bug-laden release until they finally said "screw it, we're done supporting this, I don't care about your game breaking bugs because they don't affect enough people."

    I'm fully aware that Origins was not done by Rocksteady, but the damage to the brand on consoles was done. Until I saw a plethora of praising console reviews, I adamantly wanted nothing to do with the game; that my opinion shifted from "fuck this game" to wholehearted support after a day or two with it made it hard to recommend anything else.

    Considerably better than last year's Titanfall travesty. Yes, I get it, it's CoD multiplayer with big friggin' mechs. But there was no story, nothing compelling about it at all. After a few games here and there, I was done with it.

    If it does there's something important I should let you know...

    But Titanfall was the best game to come out last year... story or not.

    The Croissant said:Maybe this is just me. But, does the whole "pick two and we'll tally votes" voting system seem a little out of place to anyone else? I feel like the group could use the pick two system to get a starting list, but then refine that list with actual discussion to get a much better end result.

    LIS is getting an indescribable amount of flak for being #1 and (in my humble opinion) I think that Witcher 3 is being criminally underrated. I also think that all the controversy is tied to the voting system rather than the games themselves. These games all excel in so many ways and provide their own unique and fulfilling experiences and it's unfair to say that game X is better than game Y. But if you have to pick a #1, it seems reasonable for that #1 to be consensual.
    The combat in Witcher 3 should realistically keep it out of the top 5. Regardless of how great the game world is, the combat is embarrassing for 2015.
