Medal of Honor? Really?
R_aVe_N  +   1295d ago
Nothing all wrong with him wanting Medal of Honor its on my list as well XD.
TekoIie  +   1295d ago

My top 5 Most Anticipated (in no particular order):

Halo 4
Assassin's Creed 3
Darksiders 2
Far Cry 3
slixshot  +   1295d ago
Yes (I only own a 360 to play Halo)
Yes (Looks like this year's Deus Ex = Amazing)
Yes (Darksiders was such a great surprise)
Nope (Sorry, just doesn't look special... and that coop presentation was awful at E3)

I'd replace Far Cry 3 with Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, Borderlands 2 or PS Allstars.

:) Solid list, anyway.
CaptainPunch  +   1295d ago
I can't wait to play Assassin's Creed 3.
CaptainPunch  +   1294d ago
Lol you guys aren't fans of Assassin's Creed?
CircleGuy  +   1295d ago
I will, as I always do, hold out hope for the 007 game. Maybe it'll be awesome? Sadly, always disappointed.

Awesome list guys, thanks
R_aVe_N  +   1295d ago
My Top 5 for the rest of 2012

1. Borderlands 2 Loot Chest Edition (paid for)
2. Assassin's Creed 3 Limited Edition (paid for)
3. Darksiders 2
4. Medal of Honor: Warfighter

Good, this fall will give me some time to invest in games i've already bought and haven't played.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1295d ago
I'm lookinh forward to AC3, ZombiU, and the Wii U itself.
If anymore Wii U games are announced that i find interesting, then i'll add them to my list.
I might also check out Borderlands 2, Far Cry 3, and Medal of Honor: Warfigher but if the Wii U is really fun, i'll probably be on it for a while lol.
Phish  +   1295d ago
Good article - Informative and appreciated!
DuncesOfWur  +   1295d ago
Calmer than last year. Generally a good thing but most of the games I was really excited for got pushed to early 2013.

I still have Borderlands 2 and Halo 4 to look forward too. I'm also hoping for WiiU this year.

There is 4 games out of that list I am getting...Darksiders, Guild Wars, Boarderlands and Dark Souls. Far Cry 3...I MIGHT, but only if it turned out better than the predecessor. The rest is mostly shooters, driving games, and crappy kids games. Epic Mickey...nah, I am not 6.
