Yeah, I never touched Uncharted 2's DLC and I don't feel like I missed anything.  But I'm not a big multiplayer person.

The only game I'm truly compelled to buy is Batman. I might pick up Dark Souls sometime in November but between Batman and my current backlog I just can't see me getting into any other games this year.

I want to get The Binding of Isaac and Skyward Sword, but I'll probably wait a year or two to get Skyward Sword ($60 is too much for Zelda IMO).

I've been hearing good things about Isaac, but being only for for PC means I won't get it. Hopefully, it will come to 360/PS3.

I find your comment about Skyward Sword odd, as I deem Zelda games to be among that small group of games that are actually worth the asking price. I would buy it day one, if I hadn't already told Nan that it would make a good Christmas present.

I agree with Grim about Zelda. That aside, I dunno about you guys in NA, but here it takes Zelda games 3 years+ to drop substantially in price. Twilight Princess is still $79 here ($99 originally).

Except it's $50 here. $70 if you get the Wiimote bundle.

Oh woah, $79? ...really?

I bought Twilight Princess this year at $30 when Nintendo started their "Nintendo Selects" thing, and I'm from Chile. The prices here for games can be pretty stupid at times but normally they are little bit higher than in NA for $2 to $10 dollars more or less, but it depends in the store most of the time.

You can find a 2 year old game at full price or a little bit more of the original full price and you go to another store from the next city that you can reach in 15 minutes by train and you find that same game really cheap, and brand new.

I'm kinda underwhelmed this year, most of them really aren't my thing. But Zelda and Assassin's Creed (wait, I thought that's a 2012 release) are mine. I've never played an Elder Scrolls game before, but I did love Fallout 3, and I'm willing to at least give it a good look (or rent). But I've had bad luck with western high fantasy games before (hated Dragon Age), so I'm not sure yet. I don't have a PS3, so a number of those games aren't an option, either.

I don't actually like Bethseda's games. I pretty much just create a character and walk around marveling at every little detail. I know I'm in a minority here, but if we're going to do Western fantasy, I'd rather just play Dungeons and Dragons, which is why I do.

Yeah, I don't see myself picking anything up for this season really. Maybe Solatarobo, maybe a DQ game.

I get the reasons why people wouldn't like a Bethesda game but it's totally my style and I'm psyched

Believe me, I absolutely love Zelda but after buying Twilight Princess and Spirit Tracks Day 1 I just don't feel the need to do it again. I know I'll love it, but I'm sure I'll love it more if it only costs $40.

Funny thing about Nintendo games is that they don't typically drop in price except for the rare holiday deal; especially headliners like Mario and Zelda. Otherwise you'll be paying the same price for them as you would the day they came out regardless of how many years it's been since its release (i.e. SSBM being full price until the day that the Gamecube died).

That said, if there's any other game besides Zelda I'm looking forward to, it may just be that Aliens DS game being made by Wayforward.

I'd like elder scrolls more if it didnt have that godawful leveling system. I've always hated that.

If you're talking about what I think you're talking, Skyrim got rid of it.
