I'm a liberty Republican (that is, a Republican who leans libertarian right). I used to be more hardcore GOP, but I don't agree with all of the GOP's principles.

Have you tried Forza Motorsport 5, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Ryse: Son of Rome? They're pretty good. There are other games on the way-- Tomb Raider Definitive Edition on January 28, Titanfall on March 11, and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes on March 18.

I very much enjoyed gaming in 2013. The highlights of the year, for me, were Dead Space 3 and Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

But, the pinnacle for me this year was the XBox One. I got mine on Day One and am enjoying it immensely. Call of Duty: Ghosts, Ryse: Son of Rome, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, and Forza Motorsport 5 have all been fantastic games. Battlefield 4 will be fantastic when (and if) they work all of the issues out of it. The year was rounded out by the fantastic Super Mario 3D World. This coming year, I'm looking forward to Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Titanfall, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Watch Dogs, Destiny, Tom Clancy's The Division, and the next COD and AC entries.

Eh, I'll pass on Wind Waker HD. I think Ocarina of Time would have been a much better HD remake.

No, I don't think that Nintendo is "kiddie." Nintendo's biggest thing that sets it apart from Microsoft and Sony is that its core franchises appeal to everybody, kid and adult alike. I have just as much fun playing Mario games now as I did when I was a kid.

My most anticipated games of 2014 are, in no particular order:

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition-- I had Tomb Raider for the XBox 360, but never finished it. I'm willing to give it another go.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze-- Gotta have a good 2-1/2-D platformer in there.

Titanfall-- I'm slowly resigning myself to the reality that MMOs are becoming a larger part of console gaming, so I might as well dive in. Hopefully there's room to play it solo, and hopefully, with the fact that it's published by EA and with all the bugs BF4 had, this doesn't just turn out to be BF4 with robots.

Destiny-- Similar feelings as above for Titanfall, although I'm pleased that this one has the option to play the story and side missions solo.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes-- I haven't played a Metal Gear game since the third one, and I'm eager to jump back in.

Tom Clancy's The Division-- Another MMO, but I think it's the most interesting one.

Next Call of Duty title-- I loved Ghosts, and if the back-and-forth pattern between IW and Treyarch continues, I can't wait to see where Treyarch goes next when it's their turn in Fall 2014. Black Ops 3? Another WWII entry? Or perhaps new territory for the series? There's lots of it out there-- the Korean War, World War I, the first Gulf War.

Next Assassin's Creed title-- I had a blast going through Black Flag. There's lots of unexplored territory for Assassin's Creed: the American Civil War, the War of 1812, the Roman empire, perhaps pre-Communist Russia...

Watch Dogs: After their successful performance on new-gen consoles with AC4, I'm eagerly anticipating this open-world game.

Quantum Break: Remedy Entertainment's Alan Wake was probably the most original game I'd ever played. I have high confidence in their ability to deliver again.

Is anyone else still having this issue? I know most people might be more interested in multiplayer, but it's still frustrating to not have your game saved on single player.

EA is also publishing Titanfall-- I'm looking forward to it, but I certainly hope EA learns from their mistakes with BF4 and Titanfall doesn't become BF4 with robots.

Yes, I like stealth games. I'm a big fan of Splinter Cell and Assassin's Creed.

2 releases is OK with me-- I just have an XBox One, so I'll go with the AC for that. I got rid of my 360 when the Xbone came out.

To me, the greatest gaming franchise of all time is Mario. I love different genres, but Mario appeals to everybody. To me, Super Mario Bros. is the greatest game ever made.
