    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    Skyrim is Oblivion repolished, albeit not entirely inventive. Not birthed but a modification of already existing pieces.

    *Beginning Note* I am not a huge fan of open world games such as this, though I strongly enjoyed Morrowind I very easily lost interest in games like Red Dead Redemption and GTAIV (different types of open world games I ... Read Full Review

    Diablo III

    Diablo 3 strikes back with more fluid satisfying combat, but its a tad too streamlined, and the loot less lustful.

    There were 3 main components of D1 and D2, that was fast paced combat, loot, and feeling powerful. The combat has been nicely tuned, but the rune system is in its own way limiting. Sure you can switch them out on the fly... Read Full Review
