LOL "then some other crap" :D

I'm hearing Far Cry 3 is a serious hit this time. Can't wait to play it, I have it sitting here on my desk but I'm too engrossed in AC3 & want to finish it.
My problem is that I haven't played enough of the games on their list to make a fair judgment.
But AC would probly be my first choice anyway.

You'd have to have a Gamefly account & rent them ... or keep buying new & do trade-in's to play that many. Who has the $$ to afford this hobby?
I sure don't! I started renting from Redbox and it's been great to try new games so I know if I want to buy them or not when they're a little cheaper.

LOL, that's right I forgot about that game, but that belongs under "Some Crap" but I guess it's a 9.6, Hell most games are beating COD that's just funny.

Yeah I've been getting games more on PSN or plus (for like 15 euro/dollar), on sale or just borrowing them from friends.
Prices drop immensly these days within just 1-3 weeks you can already get a game at half price or less.

Mine were PES2013, SFxT and AC3. Two of which are competitive games as you can see, makes it even more hilarious imo

As far as I see there's not a single nomination for AC3 at IGN's.
That's, uh... hmm.... yeah,,, :/
I followed the marketing campaign and I honestly I don't remember any major false promises. I didn't even notice the lack of frozen rivers and canoes. It's not exactly like Venice were you were REALLY encouraged to use boats. Besides, who needs canoes when you have THE Aquilla. :P

Journey was an amazing experience. Outstanding. ;) It and AC3 have my support.

Still need to play Far Cry 3, but I've heard it's excellent.

The walking dead was one of the best games I have ever played. Sounds stupid because its mostly point and click but I have never been so emotionally attached to video game characters before, especially Clementine. When it said "Clementine Feels Hurt" because you tell her to stay to be safe, you feel so bad yet know its the right thing to do :'(, cried at the ending too :(
