We see this sorta stuff every year. Being so disappointed about games this year, meanwhile ignoring the majority of good games that have come out. There still are a number of great titles.
Games I've played:
Mark of the Ninja, Xcom, DOTA2, BL2, Spec Ops, Prototype 2, Dark Souls(PC), and Walking Dead(in order from excellent to good). Oh and Sleeping Dogs.
Games I have bought, but still haven't got to:
Darksiders 2, Dishonored(currently playing), and Syndicate(just bought for 5 bucks).
Games I want to eventually get:
Hitman, Far Cry 3, and AC3.
There are plenty of great games to not be disappointed about if you look around.
