    I always play on game at a time, but I really really really wanna play Far Cry 3 like now!

    I mean:

    Name another game where you can corral a crowd with rapidly-spreading fire, then free a ravenous bear from a flimsy cage and watch nature take its hilarious, cathartic course.

    Hmm. Red Dead Redemption and Uncharted 3 both $15. If I had to choose one...

    Picked up MW3 yesterday for $20. I know the campaign is only 5 hours or so, but the first hour is definitely worth the price of admission.

    Bah. You'd think with your awesome head phones you'd be able to hear them coming.

    Those headphones are for PC gaming. RDR is Console only unfortunately. Aiming on a gamepad is particularly harder than mouse and keyboard and much more frustrating. (but that's a whole new discussion ;-) )

    I'd recommend just about anything but the Uncharted games.

    Uncharted 3 bored me senseless.

    RDR. Uncharted is the most overrated franchise this generation.

    I didn't bother finishing Uncharted 2.

    Yeah, go with RDR. I'm not going to disparage the Uncharted franchise, because I love those games, but RDR is phenomenal.

    In other news, passed on Dead Island. Thanks for the help, guys.

    I'm at the beginning of Uncharted 3. Love the physics, and it shows a ton of potential. But it's all so easy to me right now. The level is too easily mapped out, and the puzzles can be solved within a minute. Meh.

    Just glad to have a PS3.

    Do Walking Dead... Best story-based game I've played this year, and most involving since Mass Effect 2.

    By the way, I'm not a huge fan of RDR either. Too much like Grand Theft Auto/Skyrim where doing your own thing sounds infinitely better then the actual story. Then you just get bored after a while.

    I spent the entire time playing poker in RDR. The actual game is very boring.

    I'd take Uncharted 3.

    However, you are murdering bastards in both games, and that's wrong.
    Sure why not?

    STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI (Rian Johnson) - 9
    STRONGER (David Gordon Green) - 6
    THE DISASTER ARTIST (James Franco) - 7
    THE FLORIDA PROJECT (Sean Baker) - 9
    LADY BIRD (Greta Gerwig) - 8

    Cool cool. Probably getting RDR. I play one game at a time and I just bought LA Noire so it'll probably be shelved for a while.

    Honestly if I didn't miss out on Amazon's $15 Max Payne 3 I'd do that instead.

    Grabbed Lego: LOTR and Driver: San Francisco for less than $25 a piece for my kids for Xmas. Any thoughts on Driver? My younger son loves open world racing games (his favorite game is Burnout Paradise) and from what I could tell, it fits the bill pretty well.

    My oldest and I just finished the LOTR trilogy this weekend and he's obsessed. Plus, we love the Lego games.

    Everyone needs to experience "Max Payne 3".


    Oh and to anyone who thought that Martin O'Donnell's departure from the franchise with "Halo 4" would mean that the games would cease to be the benchmark for video game music, luckily that wasn't the case...

    I'd vote Uncharted 3, loved the first two, can't wait to play it. Have not played RDR but may have to pick it up after all your comments...

    Bought Hotline Miami. Never even heard of it but it appears to be badass.

    Just finished the "Halo 4" campaign on Legendary.

    When you beat it on any other difficulty, the very last shot of the epilogue cinematic is Master Chief having his armor removed, and as the helmet comes off the screen cuts to black.

    With Legendary, you get a brief glimpse of his face.
