It’s been a slow year for new video games for me. I bought Grand Theft Auto 4 at midnight, then barely played it. I bought Madden 2009 and love it, but I’m rarely in the right frame of mind to be actively challenged by it.
Now there are some decisions to make. I’m looking forward to Gears of War 2, but am unsure about titles like Dead Space and Left 4 Dead. Both seem to be up my alley; I like third-person shooters just fine, especially with the horror twist to keep it interesting. My main gripe is that it’s not as obvious as last year’s crop of outstanding games that are fun to pick up and play whenever.
What games are you looking forward to as the holidays near? Chris, if you’re reading this, help me out!
