2011: The Year Of The "Threequel"

Megabits of Gaming writes: "Apparently three is quite a big fish among the ranks of the numbers. Screw things up twice? Don't worry, as it's third time lucky. All good things come in threes.By the end of August a lot of us will have sampled the fully expected brilliance of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, interestingly a game that happens to be the third in the Deus Ex series, we've already had Dirt3, Mortal Kombat 3, The Sims 3, Killzone 3, and things are about to really step up, with some of gaming's biggest and most loved franchises preparing to unleash their own third installments."

AC:Brotherhood was released in 2010.

However it could be replaced with Revelations as it is the end of Ezio's trilogy thereby retaining the threequel feel.

Even delayed games like Mass Effect 3 is the third. And Last Gaurdian, which is the 3rd game in the series after ICO and SotC. DeathSpank's Third title, The Baconing is coming out this year too, and Journey, which is the 3rd PSN title from thatgamecompany. There are sure a alot of '3rd' games coming out.

I'd sell my soul for some of these games :) Gears 3, Uncharted 3 and Deus Ex look amazing!!!

Glad the end of the year is looking better than the start. Besides Portal 2 and maybe LA Noire, I've been disappointed so far. Christmas looks like it will be expensive though!

What? You didn't hear?

The Government canceled Christmas as part of the Debt ceiling deal.
