Really, I'm just kind of bored, and I figure why not do a little write up on some of my favorite games, movies, shows, and some least favorite things from this year! Ok, here we go!!
Here's my top ten list of favorite games this year:
10: DMC: Devil may Cry- I personally felt like Dante was improved on from past games. I'm sure that's an opinion not many would share, but that's how I sees it! Also, the story was pretty good, though they did try too hard to be shocking in parts.
9: Tomb Raider- This game did a good job at rebooting the franchise. Gameplay was very well done, however I hope in later titles they make the story more compelling, and with less 1-dimentional characters.
8: Injustice: Gods among us- a DC universe fighting game from the guys that made Mortal Kombat! You know I'm in! Not only that, but they did something with Aquaman I thought impossible: Made him a BAD ASS!!
7: Batman: Arkham Origins- I love the Arkham games, and this one delivered. The voice cast did a great job, and I liked the story. I will admit, though, it's not the strongest entry in the series, but I'm a Bat-Fan so I can let it slide.
6: Saints Row 4- Crazy, over the top and just a fun time. I loved everything, from the character design, to the super powers, to Nolan North.
5: Dead Space 3- I'm going to admit something; I'm a wimp when it comes to scary games. With that being said, I personally loved this entry in the Dead Space series. With it's action set pieces, to the story, and the DLC opens up the series to a potential 4th game!
4: Assassin's Creed 4- I enjoyed AC3, but I loved AC4. Edward Kenway was by far a better protagonist, the settings were beautiful, and the story was well done. The modern day portions, however.......meh
3: Grand Theft Auto 5- 3 playable characters, huge city to explore, a very awesome multiplayer (once it began to work), and great story
Now, it was a toss up for my number 2 and 1, so I'll say it's Last of Us and Bioshock Infinite.
Both have great stories, characters, settings, graphics, gameplay, and are by far the two best games I've picked up this year.
I give Bioshock Infinite my number one spot for this one reason: Last of Us is near flawless, but certain areas of the game pull you away from the experience. For example: Sneaking by some clickers (zombie creatures if you're not familiar), and other characters that are with you make a lot of noise, but you make a tiny noise you get attacked.
Big Disappointment: Metal Gear Rising Revengeance.
Now before I go on, let me say that this is a fun game. I did enjoy the gameplay, but the story was awful, the characters weren't really fleshed out, Raiden was bad ass, but he randomly would go crazy. Basically, it's a decent action game, but a bad Metal Gear Game.
Well, that's all for now! Stay tuned for more whatnots of the year!
