Blizzard is well known for making games that keep gamers hooked for months, if not years. World of Warcraft has a huge open world to explore, a world that is packed with lore and tons of quests. StarCraft II has the competitive and strategic edge to it, encouraging players to keep getting better and better. For me, what keeps players hooked to the Diablo franchise is the appeal of loot as well as the challenge of besting some of the toughest enemies.
It's been two years since DICE gave the world Battlefield 3, a pretty impressive multiplayer experience that was visually astounding, too.

Has DICE done enough to win them over with the latest Battlefield?
The first Saints Row I played was number 3, just earlier this year. I knew absolutely nothing about the series, and was pleasantly surprised at how much fun and over the top the game was. Imagine my delight when I heard another trip into this franchise was on its way, bringing with it some super powers and aliens! Will it live up to its predecessor? Or has the series run dry?

A commitment to independent Developers? Super Giant Games, the creators of Bastion, take the stage and show off their newest game called Transistor, setting the stage for other indie gems to follow.
