This article is dumb it basically bashes AC1 because it wasn't as good as AC II?

What the hell were people expecting with Mass Effect 3? There was always an overarching story that had little influence from the choices you made in the game. The choices were almost always self-contained, mattering only in that level or towards the end of the game. They were almost exclusively oriented towards certain characters and not much else.

Yes, it sucked that the Rachnii Queen's story game back so limp. But most of the choices you made throughout the game were satisfactorily closed by the end of that game.

My only complaint is that the ending was almost an afterthought. I think if it had a longer, more satisfactory ending people wouldn't have cared so much about the small differences between them.

Assassin creed 1!!? Wnats was wrong with that at the time of release.... it's come pretty far since then.

Oh and you missed resident evil 6 and operation racoon city.

With his comment on Haze he mentioned "Maybe this game was overhyped because, at the time, Sony was getting decimated in sales by the 360"

A little fact checking never hurts. Haze released in May 2008. Prior to that, for the calendar year of 2007, the PS3 handily outsold the 360 by almost 1.5 million units despite it's high price point. How on earth does he figure the PS3 was being "decimated" by the 360 at the time? It's odd that people still parrot this idea that the PS3 was somehow slower selling then the 360 despite how readily available sales data is.

As for GTA4 having the "least inspired story" of the GTA games, yeah..I'm going to have to cry foul on that one. GTA4 had without a doubt the most complex and compelling group of characters and overall plot I've had the pleasure of experiencing in a video game...ever. IGN, giving out one of their few perfect scores commented that the story was "Oscar quality". I tend to agree. This was perfect, adult entertainment mirroring some of the best writing from shows like the Sopranos and the Wire. I understand it wasn't for everyone but to me it was a masterpiece.

I also don't think Dragon Age II was that bad of a game. It was a disappointment for sure compared to the first title, but if it existed in a vacuum without the first to compare it to, Dragon Age II was a perfectly serviceable, action rpg. It just wasn't Dragon Age Origins, and I think it was unfairly bashed because of that. Of course, how could we not compare it to its predecessor?

I disagree about assassin creed, it was awesome and unexpected and a breath of fresh air, it had repetitive side missions yes, but it's main story missions were cool and even more focused on being an assassin than it's later sequels, and it looked glorious , they managed to top it all off with AC2 no doubt but that doesn't mean the first was a disappointment, it was just a pretty good game with room for improvement , i'd give it something between a 7 and an 8 out of 10

I loved Assassins Creed 1. I included it because it felt primarily like groundwork for future games rather than a fully realized game itself (not a bad thing).

I expected so much from this game but it turned kind of boring half-way through. It's not a bad game by any means, only disappointing.
