All of you praising Tomb Raider. STAAAAAHHHPPPP!

I want to buy it but I have such a back log of games that it doesn't make sense to buy it now but I WAAAAAANT TO and all of you on here praising it are wearing me down.

I'm trying to slush through Sonic Unleashed and all I read on here is Sony sucks and Tomb Raider is the best game in the world.

I can't take it...

I'm sooooo weak....

Edit... sonic UNLEASHED

I feel your pain, haha! I'm fighting the urge to buy Tomb Raider as well.

By the way, if Sonic Unleashed has you just trying to "slush" your way through it, just stop playing. I find that if a game isn't fun, or it feels like a slog or a chore, it's better to just let it go. ;)

Think of it this way,... by the end of this year, Tomb Raider will be $15 to $20 on Steam. And $30 on consoles.

So, you can burn through your back log and pick up Tomb Raider at the end of 2013.

I know how you feel, I'm resisting buying it now as well. Even though I already got the controller.

Why the HELL would you play Sonic Unleashed when you could be playing Tomb Raider? Check that, why would you play Sonic Unleashed for any reason at all??

Screw your backlog. Play Tomb Raider.

The last game I ran out and got due to VGF peer pressure was Vanquish. I'm not falling for that trick again.

If I payed for a game I make every attempt to clear it regardless how bad it is. Very few can I not stomach through.

I LIKE Sonic Unleashed it's just that the controls are poop which makes it very frustrating. I played Generations and I absolutely loved it so I figured I'd try the rest.

I'm in the same boat. This game wasn't even on my radar until sites started reviewing it and the VGF started praising it. Now I want it bad. This along with Far Cry 3 which is another game that I had no interest in.

Alas, I must burn through some of my backlog before I purchase either. With my track record I know I'll buy it and sit on it for 6 months before I play it. May as well wait and then get it at a lower price point.

The VGF hyped Sleeping Dogs and FC3 and I loved both games which wouldnt have been purchases otherwise

I'm also going to have to say Tomb Raider is excellent, sorry but its gonna be better than 90% of the stuff in your backlog you should def pick it up, If your not a completionist it should be a pretty quick playthrough, than you can get back to work on your backlog.

GMG - $36.

Hah! I have to agree with the OP, the peer pressure is maddening!

I think since I already expected this game to be fantastic, that the VGF peer pressure hasn't had as great an effect as it sometimes does. I'll keep waiting on dat price drop. Besides, Bioshock Infinite comes out in 18 days. OMG! You should feel pressured to buy it!

I think it's just those of us who haven't bought Far Cry 3 yet returning the favor! :P

And wouldn't ya know it... Far Cry 3 is $40 at Gamestop right now. That will be tough to resist, even though I'm buried in TR, GoW:A, and Bioshock Infinite for the rest of the month.

FOGE says:
Far Cry 3 is pretty awesome. I need to beat that before I buy this game.

Sounds like you could pass on GOW:A for the time being.

PCGamer bashed TR giving it a 75/100 and stating the execution was poor with no difficulty and little reward.

I feel like they played a different game.

PCGamer's reviews really suck lately anyway.
