    I also didn't care for Red Dead Redemption. Rockstar games are too monotonous for me. I will play a lot of games, but very few get me going. I'm not discrediting the game, it's just not my flavor.

    I'm turning Arkham City in today for a game I know I will love, Uncharted 3.

    You should just sell it on ebay for 55 bucks...and buy uncharted for less and keep the left over for something else

    I don't own the game. That's the beauty about gamefly, I get to try all these amazing rated games for a flat rate per month, and if I don't like them I move on to the next.

    The next is Uncharted 3, and I know that game wont disappoint me. As soon as I finish that and/or Deus Ex, I'm moving on to Skyrim.

    In a nutshell, in likely a 3 month window I go through MK3, Deus Ex: Arkham City, Uncharted 3, Battlefield 3, and Skyrim. 6 games at $65 a pop =$390 or 3 months at gamefly for $75.

    It works well, knowing that not every game is going to be your style. Less wasted money.

    You love video games...It is hard to keep up with games nowadays. But this thing you use probably works well

    right now I do, but this is a golden month for gaming. I'll be surprised if I come across 3 more games this year after this period is over.

    I just would rather spend $300 a year testing out all the games and playing the ones I like than buying the 3 I get every year (COD, Madden, The Show) and having to hit on the other 2 games completely and not get to try out any others.

    I like video games, yes. Color me a nerd.

    Epic game. The ending kind of depressed me, but overall great.

    I'm surprised it broke continuity like that. Killing off four major characters.

    We'll see what they do for the 3rd game. I am sure there are ways of bringing some of them back for sure.

    Just beat Arkham Origins. Not as good as the first two, but still a really fun game. Loved the story too. :up: Great trilogy.

    Heard origins isn't nearly as good as the first 2, not surprising considering rocksteady didn't develop it.

    TLOU might be one of the most overhyped games ive ever played, not bad, but definetly not nearly a 10 like most people made it out to be.

    I ordered Origins. I loved the first two so if it's anything like them I'm sure I'll be entertained.

    Hoping for a solid $30 price point for Last of Us on Black Friday. I'll totally bite.

    I never got around to playing Arkham Asylum or City. I picked up both on the weekend (2 for $20, not bad!) and just started Asylum (like 10% done). So far really, really liking it and can see why it won GOTY.

    Origins has basically been sitting there on the shelf for me. Ive been stuck playing COD: Ghosts. Origins hasn't grabbed me yet.

    It's going to be $30 on Black Friday at Best Buy for those on the fence.

    I think it's fair to say the boss battle vs. the Electrocutioner is the greatest ever.
