Talking Point: What's Been The High Point Of The Xbox Series X|S Generation So Far?

Isn't time scary?! It feels like only yesterday we were celebrating the launch of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S here at Pure Xbox, and now almost four years later, we're already starting to think about the next generation of consoles.

Of course, we've seen a lot over the past four years. Some of the best games we've ever played have landed on Series X and S during that time including third-party gems such as Baldur's Gate 3, Elden Ring, Alan Wake 2 and much more, alongside first-party hits such as Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite, Starfield, Microsoft Flight Simulator and others.

But what represents the absolute high point? Is there a moment you can pinpoint where the Xbox Series X|S generation was at its peak? Perhaps we haven't reached it yet... but looking back in recent years, what would you pick out?

It doesn't have to be the launch of a game. It could be the arrival of FPS Boost or the final backwards compatibility additions, for example, or perhaps a really amazing Xbox Games Showcase (like the one we just saw). Maybe you'll point towards a great period for Xbox Game Pass, or possibly just the success of the console launches themselves.

Whatever it is, we'd love to hear your thoughts about the high point of the Xbox Series X|S generation so far. You can also vote in the poll below, which we're running again after its original appearance back in December of 2022. At the time, the majority of votes were for the "B" grade ("A" was second), so it'll be interesting to see if there's a new winner!
