Game of the Year

Far Cry 3
When November ended, many of us had in our minds what our personal Game of the Year would be, so when Far Cry 3 hit a couple days later, we had to go back and readjust our perspective. Far Cry 3 is an astonishing experience populated with some of the most enjoyable things to do in a massive explorable world that’s filled with friendly and fiendish wildlife just ready to be hunted down. Mix in pirates who are constantly on the lookout for you and you have a strategic, yet action packed, adventure where ducking into bushes and casually putting a blade through someone’s back is a run-of-the-mill day. Far Cry 3 is a first person shooter that goes well beyond any title released in the last twelve months, making it Hardcore Gamer’s Game of the Year.
