No.15. Dance Central 2 

Platforms-Xbox 360 Kinect

However, this latest dance simulation has a very nice presentation with impressive graphics to make you love it. You don’t have to be a dancer to play this, but this will make you dance, and this has some really good music too. Bring the child in you, and you will love it.

No.14. FIFA 12

No.13. Shadows of the Damned

Platforms: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3

FE Says: A third-person shooter game that will take you to dark ride. A Shadow of the Damned is a game where death and destruction are around every corner. The gamer gets to kick some bad ass demons. A professional demon hunter Garcia Hotspur is in a journey to harness the power of the light to save his love for the Demon Lord. It’s a game with a story for you to tell.

No.12. Warhammer 40000: Space Marine

Platforms: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC

FE Says: A heavy machine action packed game with hardcore killing and brutal action. Slice your enemies or hack them with a Chainsaw Sword or with guns. The shooters will love it.

No.11. Dark Souls

Platforms: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3

FE Says: A game with an extraordinary role-playing game that transports you to an awesome and menacing world you may never forget. The game takes you to a gorgeous and frightening world from which you will not like to get out off. This game has many remarkable bosses test your game experience and skill. A must play game. If you ask my opinion, I would love to play it over and over again.

No.10. Yakuza 4

Platforms: PlayStation 3

FE Says: The 1st of the Yakuza came during 2006 for PS2, since then this game has been in the list. The game has a different approach. A very fine story with Street combats to gun fights. Use your skills/charm to impress ladies to force to knock your enemies with impressive actions. It has everything in style. Curve you way to become the king in the underworld. Be a part of the story and you will like everything, nothing you won’t.

No.9. Total War – Shogun 2

Platforms: PC

FE Says: This one of the best real-time strategy games of the year. This game presents an outlook of the 16th-century Japan and the battles of the Japanese clans and their lifestyle with a very wonderful gameplay. Each clan has its own adventures and with specific features. Take up a clan and get started with the adventures. Like the Chosokabe Cal can recruit superior archers where as the Hojo are greater builders. Drive your own adventure. A must try game.

No.8. Saints Row: The Third

Platforms: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC

FE Says: Saints Row: The Third, well words are less to describe about it. I played the game three times so far and every time it’s fun. The game has everything to glue to the seats till you braking point. Have fun shooting someone in head or between the legs. Fight your way through the city goons to become the Boss of the underworld and play it anyway you like. Whatever you do it will be in style. Fantastic works of art with an amazing graphics to give the looks the game deserve. The best word to describe the game, “Its Kick Ass”. All I will say is grab a copy right now and you will know it was worth. Note: Adult content in the game so user discretion is recommended.


Gears of War 3

Platforms: Xbox 360 FE Says: Well less said than done. “Gears of War (GOW)” fans will know what we can say about this one. GOW is about human race on the verge of extinction and a bunch of hard ass solders are making sure that we survive. The graphics is amazing and undoubtedly so as the game play with a very fascinating story and splendid action. Save the human race and emerge victories to tell the story. If you have missed the first two then I would say get started right away. You can thank me later for telling this.

No.6. Deus Ex — Human Revolution

Platforms: PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Mac OS X

FE Says: a game with a fantastic AI. A story with technology, weapons with brains and a Hero with his heart. This game takes the gaming experience to a whole new level. If you remember this is the third release. The first one came sometime in 2000. Back then and now this game is about using the available technology to give players a game with a very high level AI. With the modern day technology the developers have give a very high end graphical presentation.


Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception

Platforms: PlayStation 3

FE Says: Let’s see what we have here. An adventure to unfold hidden treasure in an uncharted location, with a very well described cinematography, story and action. An “evolved” version of the same game engine that was used in Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves to provide high definition physics, visuals, and environmental effects. The AI is good and will make you wok before you can make you way to the end.

No.4. Batman:Arkham City

Platforms: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC

FE Says: Well, well, well! Here we have the Bat and the Cat together. Play as the Batman and Catwoman along the story. Unfold the conspiracy of the Arkham villainy. Swing between the buildings or make an amazing entrance before the action begins. This game has sty and story. Technology has given the game the necessary looks and the outfit best fit the story

. No.3. Battlefield 3

Platforms: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC

FE Says: this is one game one must play. Even though this is a War/Battle game, this one has more than enough breathtaking moments to keep your adrenaline rush running for days. You can only feel this if you play it. You will be missing out a lot of action and shooting if you miss it. A large-scale multiplayer warfare with hundreds batters, high level AI enemies, high definition physics, visuals, and environmental effects to blow your mind off. Use high tech weapons, long range sniper kills, tank battles any so much more.

No.2. Call of Duty — Modern Warfare 3

Platforms: PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii

FE Says: One of the most awaited games of the year; as awaited so was the delivery from the game. The users were more than fully satisfied with the game play, story, the action and the presentation. Very high levels of details were put in to the game to give the original looks of the battles and the environment. The game is making history. An overwhelming story and lots of action, high end guns, a high level AI enemy, anything and everything a gamer can ask for. Let the adrenaline flow through you and don’t let your fingers stop triggering. Sink to the right or sink to the left, shoot at the head or strangle from the back. It’s all yours.

No.1. Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls V

Platforms: PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3

FE says: “Skyrim” a long running fantasy epic and now this is a fifth installment in for the players. This is an Action/Adventure Role-playing game. If we compare the pervious release, we would know what has changed. When I was talking about the touch of the technology, this is an example. A very high level and detailed research was done on the environment. The game engine evolved and we have an overwhelming game to ply. The gaming experience beyond compare, the story is something that will take to a different journey. The experience is best described when you play the game. If you are still missing it, grab a copy and get lost in the game, you will not feel the time move. Take look at the Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls V
