What game are you looking forward to more? Do you want to see what life after Bungie is like for the Halo franchise? Or are you ready to see what role you will play in the revolutionary war in Assassin’s Creed 3? Do battle in the future, or engage in the past (from the future)? Stick a grunt with a plasma grenade, or stick a tomahawk into a grunting templar? Vote for your preference now!

While I’m very excited to be able to continue to play in the Halo universe, I will have to say that I’m personally looking forward to Assassin’s Creed 3 more. I just love the gameplay of the AC games, and think that Ubisoft really nailed it with the era they decided to place this game in. That’s not to say I won’t be picking both of these games up – I will, but AC3 is my preference this time around.
On a more personal note, this will be the last ASQ I write for Platform Nation. Fear not: I will be putting together one final post next week giving the results of this showdown, as well as providing stats for all of the other currently open ASQs from the last couple of months, to tie a nice ribbon around this feature. Thanks to everyone who has participated in the ASQs over the years, and helped to make this fun for me (and hopefully for you!). I’ll save getting all mushy for next week’s final post, but I wanted to give everyone the heads up now!
Anyway, enough with all that. Vote for your champion above, and drop a comment below letting us know what you picked and why!
