I’ve been a hardcore gamer since as long as I can remember. I’ve owned almost every single video game platform and game to release after I was born in 1990. Whether it be the PS1, the PS2, the PS3, the XBOX, the XBOX 360 and all the Nintendo gaming consoles; there are just too many to name. But enough about me, let’s talk about the game. Isn’t that why, after all, you came here? So let’s discuss our options. As a reminder, I’m pointing out that a majority of these games are only releasing for the PS3, the XBOX 360 and the PC. At the end of this big awesome article, I’m going to tell you the best game of this year!
There are a number of brand new games that have been 100% confirmed that are releasing in the Christmas/Holiday time of year. After the E3 meeting, there are a whole new range of options to choose from, so lets get to it. If you’re a fan of shooting games then I would suggest the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which will take place in a number of locations like Germany, France, America and England. Another upcoming game from the FPS genre would be Battlefield 3, which will be using brand new physics and game engine, namely frostbite 2, which will be able to realistically simulate a building falling, or a car exploding, etc. An already released game which is not quite as good, but still a must for shooting FPS lovers, is Medal of Honor, which contains a copy of Medal of Honor: Frontline with it. Now we will move onto the action and adventure genre. You all know about Assassins Creed, I assume? If not, then understand that it is a hugely popular medieval game about assassins, and how they hunt for treasures and uncover conspiracies. The latest in the series, which will feature both of the main games’ protagonists (Ezio Auditore da Firenze and Altair), is called Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, which will be featuring the famous multiplayer system introduced in Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. Uncharted 3 is the third part in the famous UNCHARTED series, which features the treasure hunter Drake, searching for ancient artifacts and lost monuments. The series is hugely popular, and the third part is much anticipated. For those fans of the acclaimed Hitman series, a sequel to Blood Money is releasing some time later this year, which will go deeper into agent 47’s personal life. If you’re a fan of sports games, then FIFA 11 features a whole showcase of new possibilities, like be the keeper, etc. Of course, need for speed has just released another new game, a sequel to Need for Speed: Shift, namely Need for Speed: Shift 2. Mass Effect 3 will be releasing soon too, and rumor is that it will introduce a whole new innovation to the FPS genre.
Those are pretty much the most anticipated, mouth watering and eye popping upcoming and existing video games for 2011. Now you want to hear MY opinion? Wait for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Call of duty has never failed to impress, however I have never known it to quite deviate from the FPS genre. But whether you’re a newbie or a hardcore gamer, COD fits well into all of our lives. Modern Warfare 3 will take place around the time World War 3 takes place, and is said to maybe feature the famous GHOST character that died in Modern Warfare 2. God knows how. That’s my take on this year’s best video game, and trust me, COD: MW3 will rock this world of its hinges!
