I'm just going to go down that list you linked to and point out the games I'm interested in as I see them. This is going to be a long post, for that
I'm sorry. I've bolded the names of each game so that if you don't want to read my whole post to see what I'm interested in, you can just read the
I'm looking forward to playing Dead Space 3
but I've never finished the first one and the second one I had fun with but once I beat it I had no
desire to do anything more with it, like the multiplayer.
I'm surprisingly interested in Tomb Raider
even though I never liked the old Tomb Raider games. The stuff they showed at E3 looked pretty
I'm interested in Gears
but I'm not sure how I feel about how different it's going to be. It could be way better than normal Gears of War or it
could be way worse, I'll just have to wait and see. Definitely not a day one buy as of right now.
I'm actually interested in Army of Two
but the first two were so much better in local co-op than single player that since I don't have anyone
to play it with now, I may not like it nearly as much.
I've already pre-ordered the Bioshock Infinite
premium edition so I'm obviously very excited for that. It just looks unbelievably amazing.
Dead Island: Riptide
could be good but it looks more like an expansion pack for Dead Island than a stand alone game, plus I still never beat
the original Dead Island. It was a surprisingly good game though. It's implementation of using the analog stick to swing melee weapons was one of the
coolest gaming innovations to come out in a while. I know Fight Night's been doing that for a while but Dead Island was the first one to do it outside
of a boxing game.
I play Xbox games 99% of the time but I do own other systems including a PS3. That being said, The Last of Us
is the only PS3 game I'm looking
forward to. The storyline for that game just sounds so good and the graphics look amazing. What with the post-apocalyptic setting, I would think most
ATS gamers would be interested in this one.
If Battlefield 4
comes out this year, I'll be interested in that since Battlefield is probably my favorite multiplayer shooter. The simple
spotting mechanic in the game gives it a huge boost above other shooters; Throw in the huge maps, classes with their own abilities, and wide range of
vehicles including jets, and it's just a much grander game than it's competition.
Grand Theft Auto V
. Is there anything else I really need to say here?
looks kind of cool but I get bored with fighting games pretty quickly. I may get more or less interested in it as I learn more but
it's worth mentioning.
Metro: Last Light
is worth a mention because the first Metro sort of went under the radar but was a pretty decent game from an unknown
developer. I don't know a whole lot about Last Light but it's definitely one to look out for.
I'm really looking forward to South Park
and I have been since I first heard about it months ago. Trey and Matt are putting their full support
behind this game and writing the whole thing. If the game is bad, it won't be from a narrative standpoint, that's for sure. A South Park RPG just
Splinter Cell: Blacklist
looks really good. I didn't get too into the last one, Conviction I think it was, but I used to love Pandora Tomorrow
back in the day and the gameplay for Blacklist looks very promising.
is a game that I don't think very many people know about yet but it's certainly one to keep an eye on. It looks very original. It's
an open world action-adventure game set in Chicago, Illinois that centers around technology and the ability to hack into technology at any moment and
what someone can do once they have access to things they aren't supposed to. It seems right up ATS's alley.
There are a few more that I'm somewhat interested in but don't know enough about yet such as XCOM
or the new Walking Dead
game but I
believe I mentioned all the games I'm currently excited for and have looked into. I'm sure there will be a few that will sneak up on me though.
