One game to Rule them All
Its the time of year again where we get a deluge of triple A releases competing for our precious time and money. 2011 brings in Arkham City, Battlefield 3, MW3, Gears of War 3, Uncharted 3, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Zelda Skyward Sword, and Saint’s Row 3 -which I’m really surprised by the amount of positive hype this one’s getting. While I’m really looking forward to beating the crap out of pedestrians with purple dildos while signing autographs, there was never any doubt as to where most of my (dwindling) gaming time will be spent. While most gamers will be calling in airstrikes and getting headshots, I’ll be sneaking around stealing shit in some random cave in Skyrim.
I’ve always loved the freedom you get with open world games. I enjoyed every minute of roaming Mexico in Red Dead Redemption, and almost never grew tired of Fallout’s barren wasteland (couldn’t quite finish New Vegas, heh). I put in at least 80 hours on Daggerfall, Morrowind, and Oblivion, and there’s no doubt I’ll be doing the same with Skyrim.
What are you guys looking forward to in this year’s holiday releases?
