    Great post Freeha, i’m glad you put Bioshock Infinite and Far Cry 3 in the list. Both are just awesome games. Bioshock Infinite with its fantastic storyline and awesome combat system, while Far Cry 3 with its awesome gameplay. Weirdly though, i have the first Halo game on my classic Xbox, but never played it seriously. I don’t know, i think Sci-Fi FPS is not my thing. I become really bored with all the laser-shooting and weird robotic monsters. Maybe i should give this game a try this holiday season.
