      Bioshock Infinite is at the top of my list. I've played the other 2, and have heard great stuff about Infinite.

      I didn't really like DmC. It's just all based around hack and slash, no substance.

      I'm enjoying Omerta though. Really cool gangster game you should check out.

      I'm looking forward to GTAV!
