Borderlands 2 - Winner

It may be fair to say that Borderlands 2 gained much from being a new title at a gamescom packed with recycled E3 demos, but this hardly detracts from the impact of the game's first showing. The basic formula looks to have gone unchanged - no complaints there - but there's already plenty of fresh craziness to look forward to: six-armed snow gorillas that rip up the scenery; killer robots that are fired down to Pandora from a nearby moon; a robed boss who strides into battle with an angry midget strapped to his shield. With a further brace of technical improvements - including smarter AI and the ability to take split-screen games online - Borderlands 2 looks to be building on everything we loved about 2009's surprise hit.

Looking forward to Uncharted 3 and Battlefield 3. Can't wait to play Uncharted 3, though.

Just playing U2 again too. :)

I'm currently playing through uncharted 2 in preparation for number 3, and dear god is that game good. I'm enjoying it just as much this time through as I did the first time....
Oh and cant wait for SSX!

Really am looking forward to Borderlands 2.

SSX could well be a timesink game. I do like the autolog system, and it seems that's it appearing in all future EA titles that can suit such a feature.

Joe Danger stood out for me. It simply looks the most fun. And reminds me I need to finish to 1st one.

Escape Plan is a close 2nd.

As much as I'm looking forward to BF3 its good to see a different winner.
Although the lunch of the first skipped me by I am now well and truly pumped for the next instalment.
