Syndicate for me.

Played the demo and hated it. The mediocre reviews turned me off as well. However I ended up getting the full game and I can't stop putting it down. Coop and the sp is really fun. I think the timing was bad on this one, I was in the middle of playing Mass Effect 3 when the game was released.

Probably Saint's Row 1.

When I first heard of SR, I thought it was just going to be another GTA clone.

Then I played the demo, and I thought it had promise.

Then I got and played the full game and loved it. I thought it was the first game in that genre that actually beat GTA at a few things.
And to think...people laughed at me when I said MS could out-EA EA any day of the week.
Who's laughing now, *****es???

State of Decay.

Oddly enough, I'd say before that it was Syndicate for me as well. I bought it for 10 bucks and loved it.
I buy used games. If you're a MGS fanboy and want to argue....don't bother, I assure you your opinions mean nothing to me. Just a heads up.

Injustice: Gods Among Us - Wasn't really expecting much, but found I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun it was.

State of Decay.
If everyone keeps blindly buying into the hype and praising stuff like Bioshock Infinite, then we'll all be stuck playing Space Invaders forever.

Saints Row The Third. Heard almost nothing but complaints about it. Playing it for the first time now and I really think it's fun. Even compared to the previous two. It doesn't feel like such a jarring, bad transition as I was led to expect.
Why do people... betray one another? They might as well... all just die instead.

Something I had low or no high expectations for or just thought would flat out suck?

Captain America: Super Soldier

Surprisingly a lot better than you'd expect from your usual movie based game, it was very good for what it is.

Here's my comments on the game when I was more fresh off of finishing the game:
The People's Heel
