Hot Summer Games

If you are thinking of creative ways to spend the upcoming summer holidays, allow me to narrow the choice for you by identifying the video games I am going to be looking out for. The three I covet the most are:
  1. Elders Scrolls V - Skyrim: Because it seems that finally my yearning for a proper D&D like experience with my gaming console can finally be fulfilled.
  2. Call of Duty - Modren Warfare 3: Because it's a Call of Duty game. And because it's a Modern Warfare game. And because nothing can pump me with adrenaline within the confines of my living room like Call of Duty Modern Warfare game.
  3. The Legend of Zelda - Skyward Sword: Probably the last great game to be released for the Wii.
In general my policy is to wait for prices to relax and come down before I open my wallet for a video game, which for the above three will tend to happen by mid February. After all, these big name games are released ahead of the Christmas season for a reason, a reason I don't really care much for.
However... I am going to make an exception with Zelda (I already did; Ozgameshop already has my order): It seems pretty clear this one is a special game, a game that revolutionizes the world of video gaming as we know it. It also seems a pretty good game for me to play along in the company of my four year old. Yes, he's probably too young for the whole experience, but I think we'll manage to have great fun. We were both fascinated watching the game previews alone!
In case you have your doubts concerning the qualities of Zelda, allow me to refer you to IGN's review:

As for the future behind those three titles? I predict that next year I will be doing a lot of business in downtown LA...
