I guess I'm glad that I don't fit this generic mold of what a gamer should be buying. I tend to find the sorts of titles that get more of a mixed reaction more enjoyable and worth my time/money.
Going by my logic only these games worth buying so far this year: Bioshock (only game worth buying near full retail price), Tomb Raider, Battle Block Theater, DMC, Metal Gear and Skulls of the Shogun. Sounds about right for the first few months.
That and the Comic Jumper spot on the list bugged me because neither game is anywhere near as bad as the rest of the list.
I enjoyed The Baconing enough, but it's the worst of the 3 Deathspanks. It's just more Deathspank, if you don't enjoy the gameplay of the first 2, I don't think there's anything in The Baconing that will change your mind.
