The Pulse – Game Informer's Weekly Top 10
The Pulse is Game Informer's weekly ranking of the hottest games according to our team. Each Monday we tally up the games with the biggest buzz based on number of editors playing and the time they put into them.
As we enter the Pulse's second week, Evolve continues to hold our top spot and attention. While most of our staff is entranced with monster hunting, other trends are starting to emerge in the chart.
Our team tends to gravitate toward new releases, with editors giving the latest games a test drive. In the coming weeks we'll find out which of these are keepers and which drop off The Pulse.
Over the course of this week, we'll be watching to see if Evolve continues to captivate. Monster Hunter fever is burning up our free time, but will we hang up sword and board early, or will the new accessibility and online features keep us snared?
We also note that in quieter periods, some of last year's titles re-emerge. Grand Theft Auto V is still hanging on, and FIFA 15 made a surprise appearance. Other games that were played but didn't garner enough office-wide support were Dragon Age: Inquisition, Grim Fandango, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Heroes Charge, and Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Tim also completed Fallout 3 for the first time. Be sure to congratulate him on Twitter.
