I don't get all the lukewarm reception at the end of the year - inFamous Second Son is the best that the inFamous series has ever been. That first game was such a slog, and the second game was an improvement (with the Halloween game being a fun couple of hours too) but man oh man is this game so much more well-paced and fun to get around in. Also, Delsin is way more entertaining than freakin' grumpy Cole.
The side characters are pretty much just as annoying as Zeke though (with the only exception being Fetch). I don't understand why Sucker Punch makes such irritating real-world characters. I thought the Sly games had a fun cast.
