Assassins Creed 3 wasn't nearly as bad as Call of Juarez: The Cartel. If going by the last iteration of a franchise. Gunslinger was my favorite shooter of the year. I know Patrick really like it, can't believe no mention. I had absolutely zero expectations for this game based on the franchise so far. The first 3 in the series were $60 retail games, this one was a $15 downloadable, and By far the best. The shooting felt real solid, the storytelling was unique, the rewind feature, the duels, and looked nice. Was surprised they left it out.
Agreed. Not a huge deal or anything since I don't expect the awards to be definitive, and only Patrick seems to have played it, but yeah, that gane's REALLY fucking good in a way I totally didn't expect. Especially from the story telling. Pretty sure it's the only game I played in one sitting this year
It's always going to be personal... and yeah maybe they forgot I guess. I didn't find AC IV to be some huge surprise that it was good (III wasn't as bad as people put on and it was one game in an annual series now).
I think Bound in Blood was a really great game too. But I guess it was pretty surprising.
