Brink – While the game had been a disappointment in many respects, Brink proved to be a fun and entertaining game, if only for a short time. Although executed poorly, Brink had a great premise and a deep player customization system. The game suffers from repetition and a lack of content, had it shipped with more maps and game modes, Brink definitely would’ve been a long-lasting and unique stylized shooter.
 Dead Island – Despite its glitches and annoying level of difficulty at times, Dead Island is a zombie game unlike any other I’ve played yet. Try to imagine Left 4 Dead combined with open world adventure and a great amount of quests to complete, Dead Island is extremely fun at times, but very frustrating the rest of the time.
 Star Wars: The Old Republic – Having never played an MMORPG before, I am proud to say that The Old Republic was my first MMO experience. Being able to play the game early at New York Comic Con was a memorable experience, and I only wish that I was able to afford the game so that I could play it with some frequency.
 Assassin’s Creed Revelations – Ezio is showing his age, literally. With this being Ezio’s third game in the Assassin’s Creed series, one can only wonder if Ubisoft is running out of story ideas for the series. Fortunately that’s not the case, and Revelations proved to be a ton of fun despite the few changes made to the now 3 year old engine. Ubisoft’s deeply woven story continues to unfold in this game, creating more questions than it answers. If nothing else, having finished the game only makes me want the next game in the series to come out this Fall.
 Dragon Age 2 – Despite its mixed reviews and harsh criticism, I found Dragon Age 2 to be a great game and worthy sequel to its predecessor, Dragon Age Origins. The game felt much more simplified, which at times proved to be very welcoming to me. The game focused upon a small group of characters and a single city rather than the massive, world-spanning adventure of its predecessor, which I found to be much more interesting as well. Dragon Age 2 was a character driven adventure, one that I happily replayed multiple times.
