Why You Should: Be Excited for the Fall 2011 Gaming Season

2. Franchise Mania

But of course, what everyone wants to play is the latest sequel. Let's run down the list, shall we? We've got Uncharted 3, Resistance 3, Gears of War 3, Arkham City, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Forza 4, LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7, Saints Row: The Third, Need for Speed: The Run, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. And that doesn't include all the games I've already mentioned. This fall is going to be simply explosive for game series, and the sheer volume of sequels coming out this fall is something that can only be described as epic.

Why You Should: Be Excited for the Fall 2011 Gaming Season

1. No Music Games!

Generally, every year there is at least one new game that everyone is sure is going to be a flop. In recent years, the music genre has taken the brunt of gamers' ire during the fall, as games like DJ Hero 2 and Rock Band 3 have failed to shift units in the fall season, leading to the deaths of their respective series. This year, however, there doesn't seem to be a clear loser among the crowd of fall games. While not every game will suit every taste, there's enough diversity this fall that every game should reach its target audience. Which is exciting indeed.


This fall's big gaming push looks to be the biggest and best we've seen this console generation. From the big Nintendo push to the massive amount of big-name sequels, there is going to be so much to play this fall we won't have to worry about the inevitable winter gaming drought. In fact, we'll be lucky to be done with all these games by the time next fall comes around!
