All right, so I probably shouldn't have given you guys the option.
We maintain that Call of Duty: Black Ops is a great game (albeit a little lacking in the technical stability category), but the obvious entertainment factor hasn't seemed to sway the PSXE faithful. In our recent poll, despite the words of praise from critics, the majority of participators just replied, "Call of what now?" when asked what their reaction was to Treyarch's latest blockbuster. To be fair, the game seems to get run through the shredder in various forums and communities around the web and although we understand the backlash, we still say a lot of that criticism is unfair and biased. The game wasn't as polished as it should've been and the developer is already hard at work on a PS3 patch but for the most part, it's damn fun. I will say the story was better than I expected and the single-player campaign can be immensely fulfilling.
Next up, it seems we have a racing battle on our hands. Although Gran Turismo 5 is probably the favorite – especially amongst PS3 owners – there's no denying the appeal of Need for Speed , and the new Hot Pursuit game looks great . Besides, many gamers are more arcade-oriented and have no interest in simulators so in preparation for the next few weeks, we ask: which one you gonna get? Or do you just not care about the genre at all? If so, that's fair…besides, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is almost here. Can't wait for that one, right?
