VGW: With the strong months of May and June in the rear-view mirror, and the chaos of October and November off in the distance, we gamers are stuck in the dead months of summer, where huge releases are rare. That doesn’t mean that our gaming lives are dead in the water, mind you. Instead, we get a chance to catch up on our backlog before our lives are sucked away by the frantic holiday release schedule.
Just in case you don’t have that huge backlog that we do, however, there are some definite notable titles hitting digital and physical stores this month. Whether you’re hoping for revivals of classic franchises or a strong, new IP, you do have games to consider in the month of August. Check out our picks for the top games in August 2011.
