This year has been one of the worst ever in terms of generic games.
All the games you mentioned prove the end of originality is here
Really? I don't understand how you can say that. Most big brand sequels are out every year, doesn't mean you have to get annoyed or angry by them. We all have a choice in what we play or don't play. Let's list some of these generic games then.
Dead Space 2
Shadows Of The Damned
Deus Ex Human Revolution
Child Of Eden
Batman Arkham City
Uncharted 3 Drakes Deception
Assassins Creed Revelations
Saints Row The Third
Those 21 games came out this year, you should be grateful you got half of those to chose from. Yes there's lots of sequels there but they're doing new things with each new game, I didn't mention FIFA or COD because they're recycled, the ones I mentioned up there are all worth playing. You're probably burnt out on COD, that's why you're moaning. Shut up and try those choices instead.
