Why is everyone getting so excited for this game?
I actually thought this year's been pretty great for gaming.
Let's see, there's been Bioshock Infinite which I loved.
Tomb Raider, which while not amazing, was still a hell of a lot of fun to play.
Metro: Last Light which was a surprising one for me, as I wasn't expecting to get as immersed in it as I did. I loved it.
DmC was pretty good too (I know, I know, blasphemy and all that).
Injustice: Gods Among Us, which had a pretty silly story, was also a hell of a lot of fun to play. I liked it more than MK9 and MK has been my favorite fighting series since I started playing video games.
Dead Space 3 certainly wasn't as good as the first 2 (Dead Space 1 is by far one of my top favorite games, so that's not surprising), but I enjoyed it a lot, as well as it's DLC, which I found a lot creepier than anything in the vanilla game.
Gears of War: Judgement wasn't exactly great, but it certainly wasn't a bad game either.
Metal Gear Rising was fun as hell.
Oh, and of course, The Last of Us, my new favorite game.
Not to mention GTAV, and Batman: Arkham Origins. It's been a pretty good year for me so far, as far as gaming goes anyway.
xenonogger posted...Besides the numerous obvious reasons, I think the most responsible reason has been the lack of good games this year. Such a TERRIBLE year for gaming. Pretty much every game worth playing is coming out within a span of about a week at the end of October.
While I disagree with xeno this year hasn't been horrible. To say this years first half is the best this gen is a bit of a stretch.
2010 first half releases
Army of two the fortieth day
Mass effect 2
Splinter cell conviction
Red dead redemption
I feel that easily smokes this years early line up
2011 first half releases
Dead space 2
This years a toss up 2013 could either tie with 2011 or beat it
2012 early releases
The darkness ii
Mass effect 3
Street fighter x tekken
Tell tales the walking dead ep 1-2
Sniper elite v2
Max Payne 3
This ones close to but I'd say 2012 has it.
Just to clarify I hate Bioshock,minecraft,Alan wake,bayonetta and splinter cell but I'm realistic enough to realize these games have a decent amount of fans.
Lets face it last one wasn't all that good. I'm sure this one will be better. But it just seems like everyone is getting so excited over features that have been in previous GTA games. I feel like a studio shouldn't get praise over stuff they had and then took away only to add again. I don't really feel like Rockstar has given a real reason for anyone to be excited. Also why is there no substantial Gameplay. I mean the game is like 2 months away and we really have no gameplay. Aside from little 10 second clips strung together. Bottom line I think the game will be good but I just don't understand why everyone is so excited and I would bet money that if this game didn't have the title grand theft auto no one would be this excited.
son,..if this was not a GTA game..then this would be considered the GTA killer...
