A new challenger arrives!
Several new challengers, actually. Now that the fall is rolling out like AutoBots, it’s safe to say that our Power Rankings chart is going to undergo quite a few transformations of its own, month-to-month. See what I did there? References!
This month sees several new contenders making a debut on the rankings, from mobile games to indie titles and to arguably the biggest blockbuster of the entire year in Grand Theft Auto V. Yes, this venture into Los Santos and San Andreas has stolen our hearts, making us forget all of the abuse that Rockstar dished out in Grand Theft Auto IV. We’re fickle beasts.
So, without further ado, here are the top 10 games we’ve been playing over the last month. What do you guys think of this list? What are you playing? Go!

|1||—||Grand Theft Auto V
Los Santos is huge in a good way, and more importantly, far more fun than Liberty City ever was.
|2||—||Saint’s Row IV
This manages to be both the Saint’s Row and Crackdown sequel that we’ve all been waiting for.
Multiplayer matches that you can save and reload for later? That’s a recipe for a good time.
If you’ve been listening to the podcast, you know that Jeff and Anthony have boring boners over this.
|5||—||Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
This XBLA game just saw a recent release on Steam, and hot dang is it a simple, gorgeous game.
|6||-1||Animal Crossing: New Leaf
This game still has Mitch in its vile, bell-ringing clutches.
|7||—||Mario & Luigi: Dream Team
The duo is back in another one of Nintendo’s classic RPG adventures.
|8||—||Plants Vs Zombies 2
Does this sequel recreate the mania of its predecessor? Perhaps a little.
|9||-1||Fallout: New Vegas
Anthony picked this up after Skyrim. Because Anthony.
|10||-3||Dust: An Elysian Tail
Jeff blew through this game in a matter of days, and apparently he recommends it. He might be a furry.
