Did you play those titles? I mean, the same could be said for many titles on the list (opinionated anyway), but without really experiencing a game, you can't really jumped to conclusions on it, not realistically.
I'll happily stand behind the Heavy Rain & FFXIII bash.
Though I have to admit I didn't play the last third or so of FFXIII and watched the rest of the story on youtube. Not that is was any good.
