These games are staples to gaming, and will certainly provide an ample amount of fun, excitement, and hype.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The Elder Scrolls series is an amazing piece of work, and when the fourth installment of the series, Oblivion, was released shortly after the original Xbox 360, the game won many awards, and is still a game that people look to play from time to time. Skyrim aims to do the same thing, if not do it better. Already the looks at the game look amazing, and the few videos that have been provided from developer Bethesda reveal just how exciting this game will be. The game is set to be released on 11-11-11, and pre-orders are already being accepted by major retailers.
The Hitman series follows Agent 47 who is an elite assassin working for a secret company as a gun-for-hire. In the next game, players will again take control of Agent 47, following an intricate story and attempting to flawlessly kill the targets in missions that take place around the world. While little details have been released about the game at all, it has been noted that Hitman: Absolution will be released “Christmas 2011…at the earliest” (source).
