Uncharted 3, Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim, Assasin’s Creed All In 3 Weeks…Oh and Zelda Too

It’s that time of the year where not only are the movie companies stock piling Academy Award nominated films in theaters and child friendly films, video game companies are doing the same. When the beginning of the year came with little to no pomp. If I remember correctly the first big title was Dead Space 2 and maybe even Mass Effect 2 on the PS3. The year was slow. inFAMOUS 2 and LA Noire followed a hot May with titles like Duke Nukem and Alice. But October to November is where it’s all at. I include October for the two titles that actually mean anything to anyone. Battlefield 3, COD’s only real competitor in the market was launched and yet it still doesn’t even match how powerful the Modern Warfare fanbase is. And then there was Arkham City. The highest reviewed game of the year, at the time of course. Some people were ready to give it game of the year but forgot that November and December existed. Uncharted 3 is the newest favorite for GOTY earning ten out of tens from many places but with COD being the largest release of the year, a man threatened to blow up a Best Buy cause they were out of stock. But with November 15ths final chapter of the Ezio story coming out we all forget about what many had hailed as GOTY earlier, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. And at midnight on 11/11/11 gamers will get their chance to play the long awaited sequel. Now of course we all know that the only hardcore gaming platforms are PC, PS3 and X-Box so we easily overlook the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and a new Mario land game on the 3DS. All this in November. God gamers are lucky.

As passionate as one can be about certain topics it is hard to make a living with that passion, that being said my passion for nerd culture, modern music and video gaming has yet to translate into anything moderately successful, that and my degree in electronic media, but hey at least I can use that journalism minor.
