On Wednesday, May 12, the two-month-old role playing game Final Fantasy XIII's enormous depth is still commanding GameFAQs' charts for the most in-demand video game guides, tips, and questions - and that's without any of the extra post-release content that three other chart contenders benefit from.
In contrast, Dragon Age: Origins, World of Warcraft, and Modern Warfare 2 all had recent additions released or announced.
The Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Pack succeeded in boosting the November 2009 game's interest levels (not that they were in danger of flagging too much), and both Dragon Age and World of Warcraft are experiencing a surge in speculation regarding future additional content.
While Dragon Age's Darkspawn Chronicles expansion has been officially revealed as being ready for distribution later in May, WoW's next tranche of material has started going through a limited public beta testing phase, leading to the supposition that a more widespread open beta will begin shortly, and discussion of gameplay enhancements that World of Warcraft: Cataclysm may contain.
Though Halo: Reach has not yet recieved any detailed user-made game guides, the message board is on fire with suggested improvements now that anyone with a copy of prior Halo title ODST can take part in Reach's own public testing.
The presence of Red Dead Redemption ahead of its May 18 release (May 21 in Europe) offers an indication of the importance assigned to the title by consumers, often describing it as ' Grand Theft Auto with cowboys,' being as it is the latest project from the video game publisher behind the sales juggernaut that was Grand Theft Auto IV.
