Last week, you all voted on which fall 2010 games you were most looking forward to. Fable III led the pack with 17% of the votes, followed by Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood (12%) and Fallout: New Vegas (9%).
I was a little surprised that Medal of Honor scored so low (1.3%), because I love its predecessor, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, even more than Modern Warfare 2 (which got a little boring after I prestiged twice). Although I’m definitely looking forward to Black Ops (so many awesome new multiplayer features!), I like the variety of things to do in the Bad Company games — drive vehicles, destroy buildings, revive squadmates as a medic, etc. If you like ME2, I highly recommend you try BC2 or Medal of Honor. And if you currently play BC2 on Xbox, PM me with your gamertag if you want a squadmate!
This week, the poll focuses on the platforms you use for gaming. If you select “other,” let me know why in the comments.
