Metro: Last Light, Dishonered, Hitman: Absolution, I Am Alive, Far Cry 3, Max Payne 3, Tomb Raider, Mass Effect 3 and Bioshock: Infinite are the games I look forward to the most this year. That said, I'll most likely end up buying Kingdoms of Amalur, Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Inversion, which looks pretty cool. Out of all those games I will at least play Max Payne 3, Metro and ME 3 this year :P

FFXIII-2 and UFC Undisputed 3, pre-ordered and ready to roll. More psyched for UFC though!!
As for the rest of the year:
ME3
Kingdoms of Amalur
Batman AAsylum/city
Metal Gear hd collection
maybe the witcher 2/borderlands 2/halo4/forza 4

Gears 3 pass eventually!! skyrim dlc, BF3 dlc.

I came across this article this morning very amusing, there's loads of pics intersecting it so no copy and paste. Take a look and tell us what you think :)

Went another [link] deeper in that article, which was interesting, but at the heart of the matter is this:

Quote
"Some blame can be laid at the feet of developers, making a conscious effort to make their games more addictive. It's analogous to the tobacco industry, trying to make tobacco more addictive. It works to their benefit. That having been said, it's up to the individual to take responsibility for how they play...

Some people can walk into a casino, lose $5, and call it quits. You have to know your own limits, and be conscious enough of them to know when you are in danger of going too far..."

Cheers Craig I was gonna find somewhere to post it but couldn't find a good place :)

Quote from Kotaku user ''Can someone please explain why there is a distinction between "spending hours chatting about absolutely nothing while smoking cigarettes and drinking countless cups of Waffle House Coffee" and "helping online friends camp a rare monster spawn, or discussing class balance on my guild's chat channel"?''

Eh maybe because the first one involves human interaction and  camping mobs with guild/clan/linkshell members is not. Seriously although your chatting to them over voip/ventrillo/skype it's not the same. And think about what you're doing, you're sitting around at your pc desk waiting for a mob to spawn that someone else might steal and probably has an item drop rate of 5%. Trust me I've been there, there's a huge distinction!!!
