The next-generation of console gaming has officially arrived with the Xbox Series X/S and PS5 now available worldwide. And while some things will seemingly never change, there are a few trends that we’d like to see die off in the coming years. Let’s take a look at 12 of them here.

Triple-A Games with Microtransactions

It’s been said multiple times, even before triple-A titles inevitably raised their prices to $70. But having microtransactions in a full priced game, even if they’re optional or cosmetic, just feels excessive, whether it’s Watch Dogs: Legion, Marvel’s Avengers or NBA 2K21. And now that games cost more, it’s all the more irritating to see some publishers – like Take Two Interactive and Activision – jump through hoops to justify price increases while continuing to peddle microtransactions. Though unlikely, one can hope that triple A titles are free of such nonsense in the new generation.
