Wow, you give me some nice options. Halo 4 has to be tops on this list. I am excited to see where 343 takes the franchise. To me, the COD series is great as well and I am definitely interested there as well. Another game I would add to your list is Forza Horizon. I love this franchise as well. Not enough money to round.
These two franchises have been a fan favorite for quite some time. I agree with you about Halo 4 and where 343 will take it from here. I am a fan of the Forza series as well. The list was only meant to be a starter so chime in on more titles.
I too am a consistent COD buyer. Many of my friends play them as well which makes it more fun to play in multiplayer mode with people you know. Kind of adds to the whole comradery appeal that lends to joining the military.
Games can take a turn for the worse sometimes when they change "hands." I imagine 343 will want to keep it as original as possible but also put their own twist on it too. Halo was the game that turned me into a 'fanboy' as well. Thanks for comment
