Everybody loves movie trilogies. Nowadays games are no different. 2011 see the third iteration of some of the biggest gaming franchises in recent years...
This is primarily for two reasons. Firstly because it is only so long before a game franchise becomes repetitive and unorginal. Also most game devolpers only have enough time to make 3 games a generation therefore they amke a new franchise very generation just like naughty dog.
What about Dirt 3 and Operation Flashpoint 3? Motorstorm 3, assassins 3, potentially Far Cry 3,
@Tachyon_Nova Good shout; there's a lot of 3's out this year. I just focused on titles with a continuing narrative thread, i.e. identifiable characters we've followed through earlier campaigns.
and on the pc side theres battlefield 3, diablo 3 ,and (to an extent) star wars: the old republic
