Let’s countdown with Michelle!
3. GTA V
Rockstar Games has always been impressive, especially with its GTA franchise. You’ll know what I mean if you’ve played Bully, L.A. Noire and Red Dead Redemption.
Let’s welcome the returns of planes, bikes and amazing soundtracks with three protagonists this time.
GTA V, release delayed till 17 September 2013.
2. Watch Dogs
The game demo caught my attention at E3 2011. It is Ubisoft’s brand new IP, similar to its successful franchise Assassin’s Creed but in an urban environment with digital footprint.
I can’t wait to control the entire city in Watch Dogs with stunning graphics and AI. “Remember, connection is power, but be careful what you do with it” - Morin, Ubisoft E3 2012.
Watch Dogs, release date TBC. It seems like a promising next-gen game.
1. The Last of Us
The Last of Us swept the E3 2012 Game Critics award, taking five categories including Best of Show, Best Original Game, Best Console Game, Best Action/Adventure Game, and Best Sound.
Naughty Dog has never failed to impress me since PlayStation days with Crash Bandicoot (now owned by Activision) and Uncharted on the PS3.
The Last of Us will be in stores 7 May 2013.
2013 is going to be a tough fight. Other noteworthy games include Beyond: Two Souls and Bioshock Infinite.
