Get Max Payne 3 instead, best game that came out this year.
Nonesense. You sucking at DS doesn't make it cheap. There's about 2-3 moments in this game I would regard as cheap, and this is coming from someone who dies ALOT. GOTY for me when it came and I've already put over 100 hours in to it without touching NG+. I could see why it could be regarded as dull to some with the lack of story but meh, each to their own.
Arkham City was a tad bit overrated IMO but still better than Arkham Asylum. Similar game except it's much larger with a city to roam around? AA had the whole surprise factor that nobody really expected it to be that good, but that's it for me. The only reason the story jumps about a lot is the fact they tried to include as many villains as possible in to it.
That's actually a really good choice of 3 games to pick. I haven't played Far Cry yet but it sounds awesome.
