I honestly never understood what's so appealing and unique with God of War that people get so excited about, as an action game is a mixed bag for me. Not to mention that I don't like the character of Kratos at all...
But whatever, so far I've enjoyed of what I saw of:
Beyond: Two Souls
Last of Us
And strangely enough I really liked what I saw of Halo 4.
...now, we have to wait for Nintendo to tell us how are they gonna change the world of gaming with the Wii U, or something like that. ~.~
