Time to shed your winter coat, smell the budding flowers and answer the question that's been on your mind since the dark days of winter laid their clammy hands on your precious controller.

What games are you looking forward to the most this spring?

Hacking and slashing its way to the top of our last poll was the hotly-anticipated Diablo III, which nabbed 33% (6,833) of the votes.  Considering it's been over a decade since the last Diablo game, not exactly a shocker.

It almost didn't make it, however. At 32% (6,746), Angry Birds Space flew into orbit and nearly took down Diablo. Stacked up against a list of more traditional games, Rovio's intergalactic bird-flinger -- which is quite the hit, by the way -- performed mightily.

It even beat out Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, which took home 15% (3,197) of your votes, good enough for third place and a reminder that Tom Clancy's shooter series still has some clout.

The bottom two wound up tied percentage-wise but are actually separated by only a few votes: The elegant lightsabers of Kinect Star Wars (10%, 2,108) edged out the gritty sidearms of Max Payne 3 (10%, 2,063) by a mere 45 votes.
