Joel Taveras writes, "Unless you’re living under a rather very large rock, then you should know that today is 11 / 8 /11 also known as the day that Bobby Kotick and company unleash the video game dogs of war, A.K.A. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. And while I’m sure most of you can’t wait to frag your friends, tango your suckas, or find the little soldier in all of us, you should know that there are some recent great games that have been readily available for a few weeks now. This isn’t intended to stir the pot or deter folks from MW3, which I’m sure will be great in it’s own right. No, this is for the shooter fan that should have been enjoying these gems for the past couple of months.
Without further adieu, and in order of release (so keep your fanboy comments to yourselves) here’s a list of the most recent and best reviewed games on the site as well as a short and sweet excerpt from each review."
