So far, I’m looking forward to only one game this year. And it isn’t Star Wars: The Old Republic (which, personally, I think is going to “fail” insomuch as MMOs fail by not beating WoW and allowing the company to pass out money hats). Last year, despite owning many games, all of which I really wanted to play, I only played one game a lot (not alot), and that was Red Dead Redemption. Even though I’ve never been a big fan of the Grand Theft Auto series, something about RDR just clicked, and it was probably the setting and tone of the tale. I played it all the way through, I played the multi-player for many hours, and I bought all the DLC for it. It was the best game of the year. Well, maybe a tie between it and Minecraft.
I’m going to call it already, and say that the best game of 2011 is going to be L.A. Noire. I mean, just look at this…
I don’t often get super excited about games. I try to keep my expectations low or at least reasonable. But it just isn’t possible here.
What about you? What game are you eagerly awaiting?
