    Need help choosing video game

    My brother in law is into games and we have to get him a new one for X mas.

    Apparently he really liked Assassins Creed 3 (PS3).

    Which game resembles AC3 (besides AC2 and AC1)? I've never gotten into games so I have no idea.

    Some suggestions I've recieved so far:
    Uncharted 3
    Red Dead Redemption
    Farcry 3

    Thanks.

    There are 2 games that i can't put down right now. MLB 12 the Show, and Call of Duty: Black Ops

    I'm 35, and rarely play my PS3. But those 2 games are amazing.

    None of those are that similar to AC, but Uncharted 3 is probably most similar and the best game of the three you listed. Cheers.

    Thanks.

    Call of Duty seems cool, but I doubt he'd be into it (insert Surrender monkey joke)

    Yeah the two hot multiplayer games are Black Ops and Halo 4. If he is more into single player stuff go Uncharted 3. One of the better reviewed games ever. And lolz at surrender monkey.

    He's alright. All my in laws live out in the countryside (Normandie) and live simple lives and I don't mean that in a derogatory way. They don't speak much, and like to drink and eat. What's not to like?

    I was surprised when I found out he played video games.

    It depends what systems and also if he likes playing multiplayer games or not.

    If he's more of the longer/cane_shaker like me, I would say Skyrim and or
    Fallout:New Vegas Ultimate Edition. Both games will keep him busy for hundreds of hours.


    Edit: Just realized it was a PS3 system. Far Cry 3 comes out today and has been getting great reviews.
    ALso Borderlands 2

    I'd say FIFA13 is pretty close to AC3 and MW/COD games. Go with that!

    Raoul would have to shoplift it, though.
