Brace Yourselves Gamers, Winter Is Coming

Sam Williams of Metal Arcade writes:

Brace yourselves, gamers. The torrent of high (and low) quality games that only comes round once a year is almost upon us. With Gamescom wrapping up earlier this month, the ultimate decision for any gamer come wintertime has broken back into our collective mind, through the stream of video and audio that flooded the internet from August 15th to 19th. That question is, of course, what to buy? It may seem simple on the face of it – purchase games made by big publishers/well known developers who make re-playable, fun, addictive titles on an annual basis. However, if thought is spent on the subject, it reveals itself to be a complex puzzle harder to solve than a 12-sided Rubix Cube. (Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation, Assassin's Creed III, Far Cry 3, PS Vita, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360)

It's a very mild winter of games this year. Not many big releases most have moved to Q1 2013.

This question is easy to answer. Here are the games you should buy the rest of the year.

#1. Assassin's Creed 3- Oct 30
#2. History Legends of War: Patton- Nov 6
#3. Port Royale 3- Oct 2

Gaming season is approaching. And I can safely say, its filled with tons of shooters. BLOPS, MOH, Far cry, Halo, Dishonored (sorta) its ridiculous. I guess we can count in Borderlands despite it getting released before the season.
MostJadedGamer  +   763d ago
Read my post above. None of the games I listed are shooters.

"Brace Yourselves Gamers, Winter Is Coming"

Winter starts December 21st. All the upcoming games in this article release this Fall. Just sayin'.

Most of the games I'm getting this holiday season aren't mentioned in this article. LittleBigPlanet PS Vita, The Unfinished Swan, Ratchet & Clank Collection, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, Retro City Rampage, LittleBigPlanet Karting, Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault, Ragnarok Odyssey, Jet Set Radio HD, Far Cry 3, Persona 4 Golden, Snapshot, and Assassin's Creed III: Liberation. These are just the games I want on day one. The rest of the games I want this Fall I'll get when they're cheaper.

The next 10 months seem to be packed full of great games.

Yeah, I let it slide because I consider it the games people will be buying for Christmas, which is obviously in the winter.

Also, Far Cry 3, PS All Stars and Liberation are mentioned in the article. Some of the other ones you mention are releasing within the next few weeks, which pushes them out of the "winter" category.
