GameSpot, IGN, Giantbomb, Gametrailers...they all have their GOTY awards, but only one matters - mine. Why?
Because I said so.
For part 1 I will give you a run down on my top choice from the following three categories:
Don't get me wrong, games in this category don't necessarily suck. They either didn't live up to the hype or I felt it could have been so much more.
WINNER - Assassins Creed Revelations- 16th century Constantinople was pretty awesome, but I was hoping to see the story of Desmond advance further and something more special from Ezio's final outing.
This title is one of the many that is still shrink wrapped and yet to get any attention. I know it's good, many people tell me so, but I just haven't had the time to open it yet.
WINNER - Xenoblade Chronicles - I was too impatient to wait for this to release in Australia, so I imported it from the UK at full price. I just hope I get to it before it hits the bargain bin!
We don't all have the time to play each and every game released within the year, so here I give you the top game I played for the first time, but came out before 2011.
WINNER - Mafia 2 - I got this cheap from a digital download store and it's also winner of the best bargain for the year. I had so much fun with this game that had it been released this year, it definitely would have been a contender for my GOTY.
That's all for now. Keep an eye out for Part 2 and I hope you all have a great Christmas!
@Sandpiper121PP Never fear. Revelations is still a soli game, but it fails to advance the story. Perhaps if I had given more time between Brotherhood and it, I wouldn't be so critical.
@CodingGenius I never played Mafia 1. I was considering it, but there's too many on the shelf to play (plus more coming out soon!)
@gbrading I wasn't aware there was criticism against Mafia 2. Well, I hope you get the chance to decide for yourself. I think it's pretty fantastic.
Glad I got my copy of Assassin's Creed Revelations for free (with a guide). Still need to play more Xenoblade and Mafia II :D
Oh no... not my precious Assassin's Creed franchise? That is sad to hear because I really enjoyed the first one... am currently in the 2nd one and was looking forward to it and the 3rd one. I still might get it and play it... but it is sad to hear it was a disapointment! :roll:
I still want to play Mafia 2 despite the criticism that has been leveled against it. Mafia original had it's fair share of problems in itself. A Merry Christmas to you too! :)
