Well it's almost that time of year so if you're thinking what games you want to buy this holiday here's a helpful list of games that came out this year.
Mass Effect 3 (PS3,360 and Wii-U)- If you liked Mass Effect 1 and 2, love sci-fi wrpgs or a fan of Bioware this game is right for you.
Max Payne 3(PS3,360,PC)- If you liked last gens Max Payne and Max Payne 2, love TPS (third person shooters) or a fan of R* this is one of their best games to date.
Dragon's Dogma(PS3,360)- If you liked games like Skyrim and Capcoms Monster Hunter this a fine combination of the two.
Borderlands 2(PS3,360,PC)- Remember Borderlands 1?, well here is the sequel and if you enjoyed the first one well Borderlands 2 does everything better than the first game.
Dishonored(PS3,360,PC)- A few years ago a game named Bioshock came out, if you remember Bioshock, Dishonored pretty much plays like Bioshock (minus the under water city thing).
Hotline Miami (PC/Steam)- Combine a gorgeous looking 8 bit top down shooter, 1980's electro soundtrack then you got a game like Hotline Miami, which if you liked Super Meat Boy you might enjoy Hotline Miami.
Assassin's Creed 3(PS3,360,PC)- If you played any Assassin's Creed game this gen then well you know how AC3 plays, if you haven't played any AC game yet, don't start with AC3 even though it's the best AC game in the series, it's just....don't start with AC3 or you will miss out a lot of what's going on in the story.
Sleeping Dogs(PS3,360,PC)- If you want a sim game about dogs sleeping...I'm just kidding, Sleeping Dogs is a combination of GTA,Yakuza and the Batman Arkham games which is honestly a nice combination if I say so myself.
Resident Evil 6(PS3,360)- Remember RE5? well RE6 is pretty much RE5 except it does things a lot better and a lot worse than RE5, you might have heard the amount of hate RE6 has gotten and I have to say do you always trust what people say over the internet?. If you look at the review there's 20 something above avg reviews, 20 something avg reviews and only 6 ish reviews people saying it's an awful game. I'll keep it simple if you liked RE5 and you've come to peace that RE isn't survival horror as it once was then give this game a try, which btw takes around 30 hours to complete which is very long for a RE game.
Planetside 2(PC/Steam)- As I'm writing this, Planetside 2 is 14 hours tell it unlocks on Steam. If you're a fan of massive online MP FPS then this game is for you, did I mention it's free??? go DL it now.
The Witcher 2(360 this year,PC last year)- If you don't have a PC that can run TW2 and you have a 360, buy this game. If you remotely enjoy WRPG's and you haven't played TW2 then you are missing out BIG TIME!.
Torchlight 2(PC/Steam)- If Diablo 3 didn't fix your lust for collecting gear,loot and legendary items then a game made some of the original devs of Diablo 2 in Torchlight 2 should scratch that itch for you.
Diablo 3(PC)- D3 might have started off slow although in recent months patches are continuously coming out to add life to D3, so if you want to spend endless hours of gearing up your character then D3 will fix that for you.
Mass Effect trilogy(PS3)- The Mass Effect trilogy is finally coming to the PS3 this holiday, so if you missed out on ME1 on the 360 then pick up the trilogy asap for PS3.
The WarZ(PC)- The game is in alpha/beta atm which you can actually buy the game right now, play alpha/beta tell it goes golden which you don't have to buy the game once it comes out since you already bought the game. If you're a fan of the Arma 2 mod DayZ or a fan of survival horror games then this game is for you.
Hopefully this list helps you out this holiday season on what to buy/play. I only listed games that I ether played,bought or spent a few moments with so there could be still some games out there that could satisfy your gamer lust.
