PUBG on Xbox is awful and compelling

PUBG on Xbox shouldn’t have been released in the state it is now.  Terrible frate issues, rubberbanding and a nonsensical (and graphically confusing) UI.  I am playing on an original Xbox ONe.

But with three other players, it affords a kind of creativity and coordination that one doesn’t normally see in games.  An unpredictability of experience that lends itself to tension and discussion.

I ordered a copy before it released, so my money is already gone.  I voted with my wallet too quickly and rewarded Bluehole and Microsoft for releasing a shittily-made product.  I can’t fully recommend it in good conscience, even though I’m enjoying it.

But I’ll probably be playing it tonight, all the time cursing how poorly it runs.
