I admit that I am extremely picky about the types of video games I will play and this year I played more new ones than usual. Here are my 3 picks for 2011 releases.
Dragon Age II – I never played the first one and I was skeptical about playing this one but I was wrong to be skeptical. I loved this game. So much so that I played it everyday for a couple of weeks. What I liked about the game was the character interaction and the way that you can choose your character’s path. I like how you can choose how your character responds and how you can make her/him a dick, a saint or in between. This game was thoroughly enjoyable and had a start and finish so it isn’t a life encompassing venture like some RPG games. Lots of fun.
Infamous: Festival of Blood -I played Infamous on a trial version and liked it but didn’t really get into enough to buy it. A few days before Halloween, I saw this on PSN and thought what the hell, 10 bucks for a game with vampires and super charged guy. And it is a lot of fun being a vampire fighting and killing other vampires. Bloodsucking goodness.
L.A. Noire – L.A. Confidential in a video game sort of. I was really looking forward to playing this and did enjoy it. My only issue was that the cases became tedious after a while and seemed all the same. I still enjoyed it and would recommend it.
