These are the games I’m interested to see more of and know more about at E3.
This first group consists of the games I’m already pretty excited about. Being a fan of the beat-’em-up genre, I’m hopeful for Double Dragon: Neon.
Double Dragon: Neon
Assassin’s Creed III
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
This next group is where my interest is a little less for a few reasons depending on the game. For instance God of War: Ascension and its multiplayer mode and Injustice: Gods Among Us and hearing what Ed Boon has in store for this DC fighter.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale
God of War: Ascension
Injustice: Gods Among Us
These last two are ones where there’s been next to nothing about them since their announcement. Hopefully we’ll hear a bit more at the event next week.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
It goes without saying to let me know what you’re looking forward to seeing more of at E3. Stay in touch on Twitter (@HartKnight) if you want to read more of my babbling. ;)
With a new Counter-Strike being announced, subtitled Global Offensive, I may just get back into it since it will also be for download on PSN and XBL. It’ll have a bunch of the older maps like the ultra popular de_dust.
I personally haven’t played Counter-Strike in probably seven or eight years. I started playing it back when it was on beta 7.0. This was way before Call of Duty was even a thought in the heads of the original Infinity Ward.
I remember one time when I was playing CS where teamwork was actually used to win. It was on the map cs_assault (pictured in the header graphic) on the CT side. One player told everybody to buy a smoke grenade. I was game for doing so, but I was amazed that everybody else on the team was too. We positioned ourselves outside of the slightly open garage door and threw the smoke grenades right under it. About ten seconds later when the smoke was built up well enough we entered and kicked all kinds of ass and easily took the round. This is my best remembered moment from playing Counter-Strike.
It would be pretty awesome if this new CS game could somehow take back its crown as the best FPS from the lame and very tired out Call of Duty series.
The following list is the ten games in my collection that have the highest amount of total GameSpot members owning as well. The oldest game listed is the original Metal Gear Solid.
In case you were wondering, game #11 is Super Mario World. It’s surprisingly not the GBA version like the Zelda game is. It actually is the original Super Nintendo version.
