With Uncharted 2 coming out next month, that would be an absolute no-brainer. It's going to have the best graphics and some of the best action/adventure/music/voice acting/awesomeness you could ever dream of in a video game. I've been playing the online beta and it's the beez neez.
I guess from everyone's responses I should try and finally dust off Uncharted 1 and finish it off soon. I just found out I'm "Batching" it tonight too.. So I'll probably stop on the way home to pick up the other games and then veg out.
I suppose it would be a silly move to inform your wife ...I'm just assuming you're the guy in the relationsship if you're asking for permission to buy video games... you can download the "demo" version of most every game for free?
Deadspace was a very good game from beginning to end. I like horror movies and games but I don't scare easy, maybe one or two instances where I was like 'oh $#^&!' (remember the first time the long arm-claw-thing grabbed ur leg and pulled you?) For best results, play at night, turn off all lights and turn up the volume :]
So I picked up Deadspace and Batman: AA. Wow! I haven't had such a good videogame weekend in... Well, for at least 5 years or so. Both games are flipping awesome. I got sucked into to Batman a bit more than Deadspace, but I fully plan on beating both.
At one point my Wife walked into the theater while I was playing Batman and thought I was watching a movie
I still have a few weekends to "practice" before the party that we're having.
Thanks again for all the inputs and the great suggestions everyone!
