Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

This next chapter of Elder Scrolls is very highly rated (ratings of 8 and up according to many gaming websites) and features many alternate quests along with the main fantasy journey. The game starts with telling the story of how you, with a soul of a dragon yourself, are on a mission to find out why dragons have been terrorizing Skyrim. You are searching for clues, fighting intense dragon battles, and making your own way throughout all the interwoven stories.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Released in November 2011, (ratings of 8.5 and up according to many gaming websites), this next installment of the franchise stays true to earlier versions by featuring exciting campaigns, excellent single player shooting action and thrilling multi-player action. The game continues with Soap and Price on the hunt for the villain Makarov, and the new settings and challenges are very satisfying. This version also features a Special Ops mode for hard core gamers.

Battlefield 3

With around 8.5 rating on gaming websites, this new version of Battlefield got mixed reviews. It still boasts very engaging visuals and hard to match multi-player action, but the single player campaigns aren’t satisfying. The thrill lies in the multiple maps you can conquer in the multi-player game. The lush scenes, varied modes of transport and the rewards for solving problems keep you engaged.

Batman: Arkham City

Released in October 2011, (ratings of 9 and up according to many gaming websites), this new adventure game features classic tricky villains, fresh counter attacks and fantastic side quests. Some reviewers of the game expressed that some villains were too easy to kill, but after more hours of play, dismissed that idea. What’s new in this installment is that all of the inmates from Blackgate Prison and Arkham Asylum are now in one area of Gotham called Arkham City. As Batman, you must try to figure out what is going on inside.

Call of Duty: Black Ops

Released in November 2010, this installment of the Call of Duty franchise is rated 9 and above on many gaming websites.

Each campaign is one of your memories, so this adds to the mystery.

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations

Released in November 2011, this adventure game is rated 8 and up on gaming websites.

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception

Introduced in November 2011, this next installment in the treasure hunt series is rated 9 on gaming websites. There aren’t as many improvements over the second one, but the shooting encounters are just as exciting, as well as the combat takedowns. Nathan Drake’s ongoing adventure to find the world’s greatest treasures will undoubtedly leave you guessing.

Mass Effect 3

Released in 2012, Bioware's original space-opera trilogy concludes with Mass Effect 3, in the signature RPG-shooter style of its predecessors. Players resume the role of series protagonist Commander Shepard. Fans of this trilogy have a lot to look forward to. Combat is made more challenging by smarter computer-controlled opponents that adjust their tactics in the middle of a fight. Players can now chart the course of the adventure, by traveling to remote planets and choosing which missions to attempt.

Saints Row: The Third

Mayhem ensues in this new installment of the series, released in November 2011. Rated 8.5 by gaming websites, this next chapter stays true to the series by allowing you to participate in some serious debauchery. The best part of the game is the customization feature. You can choose your body, clothes and transportation. Then the story begins with you exploring the new city of Steelport, rife with violence from three local gangs. Your mission is to annihilate these gangs and come out on top.

Gears of War 3

Released in September 2011, the finale in the Gears of War trilogy delivers quite an emotional punch. Rated highly at 9.5, this version boasts tight competition, a more strategic Horde mode and the ability to switch sides in Beast mode. The game starts out with humans clinging to life, as they have sacrificed their last holdout to the Locusts. Your mission is filled with surprises and you really get a sense of what it would be like to be clinging to life on a war-torn planet.
