I starting taking gaming seriously in my early teens. By that time I got a 360 and was blindly loyal to the latest Call of Dutys' that came out. But speaking beyond that series and more about the 7th gen....yeah gaming was going nowhere. Sorry to say it.
The only good games popped up practically once every two years. Beyond that it was macho shooters with fake so called "stories," I.e. Black Ops II....not that anyone cared for them anyway, but they dominated and made more money than the following titles I'm mentioning, and most people didn't care:
- Mirror's Edge
- God of War III
- Heavenly Sword
- Remember Me
These all came out before studios saw more potential in open worlder RPGs. Care to critique anyone?
