Let’s face it, this year to date has had some amazing releases, with Ni no kuni, Fire Emblem Awakening, Tomb Raider, Dead Space 3, Gears of War Judgement, Monster Hunter Ultimate, and soon-to-be released Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon and Bioshock Infinite. All of these adventures offer some incredible gaming experiences, and it seems as though this year still has so much to offer, including the supposed holiday release of the next gen Playstation and Xbox. IGN has either been overly generous so far, or these games are really deserving of they’re extremely high scores, each of the above (with the exception of dead space) getting at least an 8.5.
I know my wallet is hurting because of all of these great releases, and it seems people who have most of the current consoles have had a great year so far (With the exception of the Vita, and the Wii-U, sorry, the rest of the year looks promising though). However this rate of amazing game releases will not keep up forever, as game companies do not have the ability to produce major releases every other month.
Why do you think all of these great releases are bombarding us at the same time? Convenience? Or because these consoles are trying to go out with a bang? Either way, It’s definitely a good thing that Sony and Microsoft haven’t turned away from they’re respective consoles, and I can’t wait for the new console generation.
Again don’t get me wrong, Nintendo has a great lineup to come (for the Wii-U), they just haven’t had anywhere near the thunder that the Xbox and PS3 have had. With the exception of their 3DS, of course.
Hope to hear from you in the comments!
