Top 10 Upcoming Games You Should Buy This Year

OXCGN:

"2011 was the last big shebang of this generation, but that doesn’t mean that 2012 is a dying breath.

Across all franchises, platforms and genres, 2012 is a big year filled to the brim with quality titles.

In no particular order, here are ten upcoming games that you really should get this year." (Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation, Assassin's Creed III, Dishonored, Halo 4, Hitman: Absolution, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360, ZombiU)

One game I believe that should be on here is Far Cry 3.

Otherwise it's a good list. Halo 4 and Dishonored look promising.

Playstation Allstars probably first, then Halo 4 ,
beerkeg  +   1078d ago
I think more people are looking forward to Halo than All Stars.

Allstars before Halo4???? R U kidding? I hope so.

Hitman is gonna hit me man. its a beast
gaminoz  +   1078d ago
I'd have liked to see 007 Legends on the list, as it takes the best of the Bond films and makes an unashamed linear action shooter.

With Black Ops I was originally not interested, then I saw the trailer and was suddenly interested, but then have seen more video of it and am back to being disinterested. MOH looks like the better shooter so far.

A good list though, with games on many platforms.

The Halo fan in me is doing backflips for Halo 4, and I'm also really excited for Dishonored.

An honorable mention should be PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale. It may be a smash bros. clone, but that's why people will buy it.
BadCircuit  +   1078d ago
Might be why they buy it, but it isn't why they SHOULD buy it.

Or is it? Actually I change my mind. I'm sick of Mario and co. and think a great fun fighting game like Super Smash but with Sony characters is going to be great.

I'd like to see a MS one too.

i desire hitman...
Bathyj  +   1078d ago
I also wish to kill without being seen...
Bathyj  +   1078d ago
I dont think I'll get RE6 or the Vita and WiiU titles but I'll get the rest.

And yeah, throw Farcry 3 and Boarderlands 2 in there for sure.
Hooshuwashu  +   1078d ago
I think the lack of Borderlands 2 on that list is because is comes out this week, haha. it's kind of hard to ignore a game that big
Bathyj  +   1078d ago
Recent Boardlands convert.

Started on the weekend and have played about 30 hours already. Level 24 character.

Boardlands 2 will be a Critical Hit.
BadCircuit  +   1078d ago
I agree with Bathyj.

The fact that they are releasing prior to the big titles at the end of the year, coupled with word of mouth from those that have given the first one a try (probably after getting it later from the bargain bin), means this one should do great!
bayonetta  +   1078d ago
going for assassin creed 3 and hitman
no more waiting for those games

TheLastGuardian  +   1078d ago
I'm not getting any of these except Assassin's Creed III: Liberation.
Bathyj  +   1078d ago
Wow, really?

What do you do all year?
gamernova  +   1078d ago
I already prordered AC3, Xcom, and bioshock infinite. I think dishonored and fifa 13 are also must haves. Cod has me exhausted and that's pretty much it since I'm a pc gamer
BadCircuit  +   1078d ago
Bioshock Infinite will be great, but isn't out until next year.

You should give Dishonored a try. It looks like it's borrowed heavily from Bioshock and Thief, and that's a good thing.
gamernova  +   1078d ago
Definitely thinking about it. It looks really good. Maybe a mixture of Bioshock and AC.
sugadaddy  +   1077d ago
AC3, Dishonored, and Hitman are the only games on that list I'll for sure buy at some point.

I might go for Warfighter if it gets some solid feedback.
DivineAssault  +   1077d ago
hmm.. I only see three games on there i should buy this yr.. AC3, AC3 Liberation, Dishonored, & RE6.. The rest can wait til price drops..
BertlSenix  +   1077d ago
lol Halo and CoD
Same crap we see every year - Everyone should ignore this garbage
DeusExer  +   1077d ago
Pretty sure Halo isn't a yearly released title.
