Games I want to get evenutally, or reasons I need a Gamefly account
mostly in the order I thought of them in.

The first DMC was pretty good, and this one looked great as well, but it seems like this type of game would have a limited replay value, and that kept me from paying full price for it.
Had a chance to pick this up at Best Buy for $10, but I underestimated my fellow gamers and wasn't waiting outside the store before it opened. I got there shortly before noon and they were all gone. Lesson learned.
Dennis Dyack always seems to have neat ideas that falter in execution, the scene with Baldur fighting the 'troll' in the tavern I think is a good example of this. It has the makings of what could be a good action scene but ends up cliched and seems like they just tried to hard to impress. And, even though I'm not thrilled with the Norse Gods as space marine cyborgs, I'm interested to see where the story goes... plus... loot whoring
This game reminds me a lot of Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy. I spent more time in that game's training room slamming guards against the walls as if they were tomatoes (they even left blood splatter). I'm hoping TFU has as much mindless fun... but really where's Psi-Ops 2? The horrible, horrible story ended with a cliffhanger... I might have to make another list of games that really need a sequel, but right now it's pretty much Psi-Ops and Freedom Fighters
I love the way this series bases it's campaign on a real soldier's actual experience in the war, encounter for encounter, and not just putting you in the same locations with virtually nameless squadmates, and lets you go. And the slower pace is a nice change from most other shooters.
It's bright, colorful, and seems like it would stoke my creative fires. I really just want to play this game to see what stupid vehicles I could come up with.
Looks like a great game to play through once or twice, but not much beyond that. But really, really looks good for that first play through.
Because everyone needs a game they can basically zone out with. The old Tony Hawk games were great for that, but after 3 the energy that franchise had seemed to have been drained. The Skate series definitely re-invigorated skateboarding games.
The animation in the cut-scenes is amazing, and the combat looks rather interesting as well. Unfortunately, not having a PS3 means this one is gonna be a ways off.
I've been a fan of the insanity that is the MGS franchise for years, my friends and I have even used "Metal Gear'd" as a verb for sneaking up on someone... which sounds kind of stupid when I type it out like that.
I'm rare in that I actually rather enjoyed the first Killzone on PS2. Sure, the game had its problems; enemies seeing further than I could(which led to me not finishing the campaign because there was a part in a swamp where I was getting hit with grenades from someone I couldn't see to shoot at) and some frame-rate issues, which I can look past. I really liked playing against bots in the multi, and the weapon designs were great, and realistic... something I think is under appreciated *ahem*lancer*ahem*
I almost don't want to put this game on this list, I feel like it's been talked about far too much. I think X-play went for a month and a half straight where they talked about how awesome the game was at least twice a week.
I'm not big on spraying sewage on random people, or the thug-lyfe ascetic, but as much as I love Red Faction: Guerrilla, I feel like I owe this game a play. Also, Saints Row 1 wasn't bad, so... yeah.
I loved the R&C games on the PS2, and I'd love to play the new ones.
I feel like I owe my Wii more quality play time, and it's been a while since I've played a Zelda game(actually I don't think I've played any of the 3D ones) so to me it'll all be fresh... hopefully.
I've heard such great things about the Metroid Prime games, but never got a chance to play them. This seems like an obvious 'get' for me.
I'm a big fighting game fan, and am old enough to have grown up near an arcade, though it had Samurai Showdown instead of KOF, cause apparently they wouldn't let you have both... as stripped down as this game is, it still looks amazing.
I still play Guilty Gear XX #reload from time to time (I'm surprised it's on the 360 BC list) and I really like Arc System Works' style. Though I wonder if I should let this franchise work through a few iterations before jumping in, so I'll have a fuller cast of characters to choose from and a (hopefully) more balanced game.
