For Your Ears Only: What ever happened to pure stealth-based multiplayer? with Dan Hindes

Opinion: Top Ten Franchises of this Generation (part I)

If you’re like me, you always get the newest console as soon as it’s out. This current generation of gaming started for me the day after Thanksgiving when my Xbox 360 came to my door, finally being delivered from Amazon. Even in its infancy, the 360 provided many classic games. Now that this current gen has just turned five years old, I thought I would reflect on the best franchises of this generation. My list only includes console games as I personally don’t consider handheld games to be current gen. Also, sorry Wii fans but you won’t find a Wii exclusive on my list. I don’t own a Wii so I couldn’t play most, if not all, games from that console.

Video: Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood launch trailer

The first Assassin’s Creed game copped a lot of flak for its repetitive nature and poorly implemented futuristic elements. Assassin’s Creed II gave the player a lot more variety in the game world, but kinda lost the plot in regards to the… err… plot and had WAY too much time spent in the futuristic section of the game. I loved the original game, warts and all, was seriously underwhelmed by the sequel (especially the final ‘boss’ of the game: lameness personified) but still have some reasonable expectations for the third game; particularly in regards to the sexed-up combat.
