3. Dragon's Dogma - If there's one thing Capcom does well it's action combat. And battles in DD can feel like a choreographed fight in a Peter Jackson movie. Combine that with probably the most versatile character creator in any RPG and a batshit crazy ending and you have a recipe for quite a bit of fun.
2. Mark of the Ninja - I love stealth games, and growing up in the 16 bit era I have an affinity for 2d ninja games that has is nearly ingrained in my DNA. Combining the best parts of Tenchu and Shinobi has made for a fantastic experience...now where are my DLC levels?
1. The Walking Dead - Never before has a video game elicited such an emotional response from me. Rage, attachment, despair, more rage, and even betrayal. Masterful story telling and I can't wait to see how this will influence the way choices are made in games from here on out.
