Dave Lang said it best this year, "It used to be 90% game play vs 10% art, but now its 90%art and 10% game play because we know how ever thing works." Every game i played this year looks amazing to narrow it down to 5-10 best impossible. Of course, unless your a so called "reviewer".
I just finished Enemy Front(like minutes ago). Its a nice showcase for the Cryengine and easily the best lookingWW2 game to date, but the AI sucks and the friggin protagonist is a writer...a fucking WRITER. They should have shot him when he said he as there for a"front page story". Hell, i would have rather played as an accountant at least they make an honest living. An American writer at that. Fuck.
I would normally say pretty much anything Nintendo, they are way to over praised for what they are, but for somthing new i will say Far Cry 3. Holy crap. As someone who finishes 99% of games i start i didnt finish FC 3 becasue it is balls easy. I never have been so bored with a game in a long time as FC. I know a lot of people feed of of these types of games but without any challenge, why play. Oh, probably to review it.
