As soon as I began to play the original GOW I realized that there was something about the game’s blend of action and tactics that set it apart from all other games in the genre. Over the years I’ve beaten both GOW campaigns with a wide various friends, family, and strangers, and still find the experience to be deeply satisfying. While some of the systems introduced in the original GOW were still in their relative infancy, the overall Gears experience was always spectacular. After playing a lot of Gears 3 over the past week I can honestly say that the Gears 1 and 2 were just an appitizer for the feast that is Gears of War 3.
I’m sad to admit that my Playstation 3 collects a lot of dust. Sure, I’ve played my fair share of Uncharted, Infamous, and Metal Gear Solid 4, but I have happen to have more friends on X-Box Live, so that’s where I typically do my gaming. I’ve been hearing about Sony’s “Michael” trailer for a few days now and felt incredibly compelled to share it with you all. While I don’t want to spoil any of the “magic” of the commercial, I have to say that the brief 2:12 commercial elicited more emotion out of me than any feature film I’ve seen this year. Does this mean I’m a nerd, hell yes, but there is something about “Michael” that perfectly captures why I’ll be playing games until the day I die. Enjoy….
