real gamer ( not fanboy ) that plays Mass Effect will tell you GOTY. Even those minor glitches doesn't take away from the gaming experience.

I would not say avoid Assassin's Creed. I played it through and have to say it was stunning. Repetitive? Yes... Easy? Not if you try to get the achievement where you need to stealth kill every target. Overall it is a bit disappointing compared to the hype it had, but still worth checking.

and Guitar Hero3.. definitely worthy of your money :)

Mass Effect, now there's a game.

Avoid Assassin's Creed and Guitar Hero 3 ????!!!!!!!!........

Jericho, Zapper and GS I can understand but they must be smoking something bad because AC definitly is a must have. Also, GH3 is a great game. Not as great as Rock Band but still pretty good with hellish but fun diffculty and many great songs.

TheMART3952d ago

Well I think that's what they meant. Rock Band is a more fun and newer experience then GH3. Plus, if you have played GH2, its more wise to go for Rock Band instead of GH3.

I get that logic.

AC is another story. But the hype it had created isn't reality, I think that's why people sometimes are avoiding it.
