Of course, most gamers are also somewhat apart from gaming media, and only really know about games that have a huge advertising push behind them. Check out the whole list in the article. VG24/7 has the story.

    It’s hard to like something new, because chances are good you’ve never played it. What with being new and not yet on the market and all. Also, if you’ve had a good experience with one game in a series, why not hunt down the others?
