While each of the above titles deserve major critical praise, I can't help but be appalled by the fact that Assassin's Creed 3 is no where to be seen. The game was showcased extremely well and featured, arguably of course, one of the best E3 trailers in recent memory (if not all time). Either way, the critics have spoken and we're excited to see that the future of gaming is brighter than ever before.
