Upon looking at the games scheduled to come out this year, there's going to be some damn good ones. Then again, there's already been some damn good ones released. Anyone looking forward to a game coming out, or have a favorite game that has already come out this year?

For me, it'd have to be, without a doubt, GTA V. When it comes out. It looks like they're bringing so much more to the table. Can't wait for it to come out, only 3 more months to go.

Metro: LL was a vast improvement on the original. For games that have come out this year, LL is probably my favorite, too, followed by Tomb Raider.

I would have to say crysis 3 because I'm really cold atm. It's the best game for heating my room up but game play is generic and boring.

That was just me rambling about what I think would be the best game coming out. Like I said, Metro LL takes the cake.

Mars War Logs.
Cheap in price, small team of developers, was developed for pc's 1st and will be released at a later date for consoles (which is rare these days).
By no means is it a AAA title and it's not perfect, but I was pleasantly surprised at it's performance, game play and story.

Yeah, War Logs was very good and combat wasn't easy peasy.

To be honest, it felt rather clunky, but it was cheap, and it's an indie game. There's no room to complain. I don't regret my purchase at all.

Blood Dragon was fantastic, but it was far too short. It only took me 2 hours to finish it. 3 1/2 if you count the garrisons.

For $15, you can't complain, though.

REALLY???

No one mentions this epic game, gave me goosebumps while playing, and I nearly had a heart attack three times from the sheer madness that ensues. Also some of the best and most demanding graphics I have ever seen, my PC was literally on fire while playing. Keep a fire extinguisher near when playing and a couple pairs of clean underwear as you may just **** your self while playing its that good.



seriously mine is BioShock Infinite all the way. The ending was simply superb and one of, if not the, best ending to a video game ever. Followed closely by Red Dead Redemption's ending which too was a shocker. As for other games, Metro LL is so far pretty awesome not finished it yet though. Far Cry Blood Dragon was great fun for the price too, but I got slowly board after I had taken over all the garrisons.
