IGN: It's been a crazy review season. From Assassin's Creed to Zelda, we covered it all. Back in September, we told you about the biggest games of fall, and now the scores are in. Here's a look at the fifteen highest scoring games this season.
All I know its one of the most expensive season I've ever had. My wallet hates me right now... ^^;;
It was a great year but it's still a quite bit aways from being the greatest year. 1. There wasn't a groundbreaking game. The top games that came out this year are all sequels and offer a more refined and upgraded version for that respective game. 2. The timeline of this year makes it difficult for it to be that spectacular. It's almost the end of the generation. The graphics are only marginally getting better and other system limitations are apparent.
"The top games that came out this year are all sequels and offer a more refined and upgraded version for that respective game" Lol, says John Madden
Key word "season" not year.
Season basically means year in gaming terms since 90% of elite games come out in the fall. I guess I'm just not as easily pleased or fooled as all of y'all.
A season means a season. Not the whole year And I agree, nothing remarkably groundbreaking, but to be honest that's my feeling towards the whole gen compared to last gen. That's another "back in my day" story though Still, a very great Fall/Winter term, but I'm just waiting for my Japanese 2012 games: Last Guardian, Ni No Kuni, and Journey.
I agree with Alpha. The three games alpha listed plus the Tales of Graces game that is coming to the US, will start and end my 2012 off right. Every year/season is great if there issomething gaming related to look forward too. I also have the vita and hopefully Kingdom hearts 3Ds comes out next year. My wallet already hurts.
if this is the biggest season then what is? my pile is stacked, just getting to Catherine (amazing game), games on waiting list: U3 Batman AC Skyrim Xenoblade Zelda SWS
Lol if 90% of elite games came out this fall isn't that more proof that this is the best season in gaming history...
Its really incredible! All game houses firing their biggest guns & global carpet bombardments! Gears of War 3 Resistance 3 Batman: AC Battlefield 3 Sonic Generations Uncharted 3 Modern Warfare 3 ESV: Skyrim Assasin's Creed: R Zelda: Skyward Sword Mario 3D Land
It definitely has at least one AAA games for every genre except fighters.
So Mortal Kombat wasn't up to par for you? I think it was the best MK game yet.
MK was not released in the fall.
There really are alot of great and amazing games being released this Fall. It's hard to really decide what to get if your short on money.
One thing's for sure, this was a beastly-ass year.
top 3 in history, thanks to uncharted 3 dark souls, skyrim, assassins creed brotherhood, saints row 3rd.
no..im talking about another game /s
All I know is Dark Souls is the first game in a long time thats grabbed almost a hundred hours outta my life. And I'm still not finished lol. And I've still gotta start Uncharted 3 and Skyrim...and Metal Gear Collection as well as ICO/Shadow. Yes, its been a damn good year. I can't keep up.
Hell yeah, one of the best years and I don't really care much about what IGN has to say about it. Ni No Kuni, Starhawk, Counter Strike GO, The Last Guardian, etc. are all on their way too, so we have even more great stuff to look forward to. Not to mention Playstation Vita will be out soon and it's many games.
The best in the past 5 years no doubt!!!!
1998 easily.Half-Life and Zelda: OOT alone make 98 the best.
Yes, and 2011 has been a good year for gaming too!
to some maybe but i think we will be saying the same thing next year too last guardian sly 4 gt6(it will happen) halo 4 next fable borderlands 2 GTA 5 COD Medal of honor MGS rising next AC now there you go and more will be added to that list
I highly doubt GT6 will happen on PS3. I rather they push that for PS4. but yea, next year will be almost as good as this year. Heck, Vita comes out next year, thats going to be epic.
ill go as far as to say the best year in a long time, specially for PC. I love me some pc gaming, not some poser deadbox where people pretend to be hardcore. There aint nothing hardcore about playing bf3 on 720p, pad, and 24 online.
When you have to try and justify being "hardcore" you're probably not.
In the end I'm not hardcore, but I had a great time with BF3 on 720p with 24 players online. I didn't play BF3 to be "Hardcore", I bought it because I'm a gamer and I knew BF3 would be worth the time and money spent. As you did with your games and your PC.
With games like gears of war 3 this year, hell yea.
I think it was, everyone's got their own list, i ended up with skyrim, dead island, halo cea, saints row 3, so seeing as I haven't bought a single game like for 3 years, this is good, now developers can maybe start to finally see the benefits of "SANDBOX type style of gaming" freedom to do what you please but still asses to the mission or objectives, combining the usual aesthetics that make up a game visuals, engine, engaging story and world, not side rail shit all I know is im loving my games lol
I don't know that this is the best in history, but if the 3 companies put this sort of effort together every October/November/December, it can sure be the best era in gaming history.
Bought 15 games this Fall and all of them are well worth it. Greatest year ever, no doubt. Online Multiplayer: Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3 Racing: Forza 4 RPG: Skyrim, Dark Souls ADV: Skyward Sword, AC Revelation Sandbox: Saints Row 3 FPS: Rage, Halo Anniversary Action Shooter: Gears 3, uncharted 3 Stealth: Batman AC *Forced to Buy: Kinectimal with Bears, sesame Street Kinect
