‘The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’

Console: PS3/Xbox 360

Release date: Nov. 11

The last outing in this long-running open world adventure series rocked 360 owners way back in 2006. Skyrim promises more of the same kinds of thrills that have captivated fans for years: A huge world to explore, myriad quests to undertake and an almost unlimited amount of character customization. Let’s put grad school off just one more year.

‘The Legend of Zelda:

Skyward Sword’

Console: Nintendo Wii

Release date: the fourth quarter of the year

Link is set to once again rescue Princess Zelda in this forthcoming Wii exclusive. What’s new this time around? In a word, swordplay. Fighting is more realistic than ever thanks to MotionPlus technology. This could be the perfect swan song for the Wii before the new and improved Wii U comes along.



‘Super Mario 3DS’

Console: Nintendo 3DS

Release date: the fourth

quarter of the year

Ever wonder what would happen if “Super Mario Bros 3” and “Super Mario Galaxy” had freaky video game sex and made a 3-D baby? Well, wonder no more. This winter sees Mario’s first 3DS outing, which promises challenging design in a beautifully realized 3-D world. Mario fans rejoice: The raccoon suit is back.
