    I used to play Forza back a few years ago, but I would love to play it now on hot wheels tracks! That looks like so much fun! Tragically, my kid is hogging the Xone 🙁

    I think that I would like to play Steep as well, as I was a big fan of snowboard kids back when N64 was the console to have.

    As for Madden, I think they should have the guys from Gears of War playing against the gang from from Halo. Now that would be a sports game that I could get into!

      personally, im a huge fan of Forza im still working on the newest one, there is so much stuff to do even without the hot wheels expansion. as for Madden, I completely agree I think if they made a game with the Gears of War characters and the Halo characters im willing to bet it would be a best seller for sure I know I would try it out lmao anyway thanks for commenting and have a good night.

    What can I say, all these games are amazing. I have played more than half of them and want to get the rest. My favorite ones have to be Madden and 2k. However, I did not enjoy Madden 17 as much as Madden 16. Hopefully, 18 will be better. Anyways thanks for sharing this post I would definitely recommend it to someone interesting in playing video games.
