This is crazy to me, I mean I adore my favorite games of all generations, but to say Assassin's Creed 3 and Borderlands 2 are "bad" games seems silly to me. Hell, let's throw in XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Spec Ops: The Line for good measure (all from 2012). Far Cry 3 (which I haven't played) apparently also turned out very well.
Theoclymenus: Was buying a brand new PC justified in the end ? No, because the quality of games since then, regardless of graphics, has not been amazing. Most of the games I want to play are still oldies.
lettmon: I'm in the same boat - bought a new gaming pc in 2009 and have been mostly disappointed with the modern games. Batman Arkham Asylum has been the only modern game that I have really really enjoyed. Well Hitman Blood Money runs much better, but I've been replaying the ps2 version of it anyway -_-
If I get to toss in console titles I can throw out even more. If I can toss in non-AAA games like Mark of the Ninja I'd be here typing all night.
