Most Anticipated Games of 2013 | GamingCapacity

It seems that with every year of this generation the games have only got better and better. Last year we had the pleasure of playing such gems as Portal 2, Skyrim, Batman: Arkham City and Uncharted 3. This year has been just as brilliant if not more so with Mass Effect 3, Borderlands 2 and some excellent indies like Journey and Bastion. Can 2013 live up to the last 2 incredible years? (Aliens: Colonial Marines, Beyond: Two Souls, Luigi's Mansion 2, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3, The Last Of Us, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I actually just started becoming interested in The Last of Us after catching up with the Walking Dead this weekend. I see plenty of similarities in these franchises, so if I like TWD, I should be able to find some type of enjoyment from The Last of Us.

After watching the latest episode of the walking dead this week I honestly get more pumped for the last of us.The way humans are against each other and the infected really adds a lot of tense because it's all survival of the fittest. Plus the road vibe also comes to mind too.

I've been thinking the exact same thing. Sony should do some sort of promotion for the game with AMC during the second half of this season or just have a trailer released during commercial break. Thats what EA did for Mass Effect 3 and Microsoft did for Halo 4

"Sony should do some sort of promotion for the game with AMC during the second half of this season or just have a trailer released during commercial break."

If this doesn't happen, I will have lost all faith in Sony's marketing team. Seems like the obvious thing to do in my eyes.

Games I've bought in the last two years:

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
Kingdom Hearts 3DS
Final Fantasy: Theatrhythm

That's it...

It wasn't a great two years, for everyone. And next year?

Elder Scrolls Online
Final Fantasy 13-3 (not that excited, though)

..yep. That's it.

I know the games that others have listed will be profitable. I know I'm a minority. But, I wish companies would realize that there are too many shooters, and action RPGs, and start making some money off the other gamers out there.
Hicken  +   1093d ago
So because you didn't buy too many games, it wasn't a great two years? There was a lot more stuff out there worth buying than just what you bought, and not all of it was a shooter or action RPG.

Journey, for example, which is perhaps the best game of this generation(in my opinion, at least).

And, really, what's wrong with a good action rpg or shooter? It seems almost like you disliked those games just to spite them; just because a game or genre is popular doesn't mean it's no good.

What minority are you?
kalkano  +   1093d ago
I said it wasn't a great two years, for EVERYONE. If I thought there were more great games to buy, I would. I know there are plenty of games that MOST gamers think are great. I just don't share that opinion.

I'm the minority that hates shooters. I like action RPGs, but there are WAY too many of them. We need turn-based, and strategy RPGs.
Vandamme21  +   1093d ago
for me
MGS Rising
Yakuza 5
Watch Dogs
The Last of us
Ilovetheps4  +   1093d ago
The Last of Us is my most anticipated game for next year. The game looks fantastic and I can't wait for it. Naughty Dog has always been one of my favorite developers, and it seems that they've done it again with this game.
majiebeast  +   1093d ago
Cant wait for next year so many good games coming out for PS3,PC and Vita. Last of us gonna push AI on consoles to the next lvl if the demo footage is anything to go by.

I dont think it needs the caveat "on consoles".

The AI in LoU looks better than any game on any platform. I think its something the industry really needed as its been a neglected area this gen.
Imalwaysright  +   1093d ago
Fortenite ( just to see Unreal engine 4 in action)

And hopefully TLG, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and FFVS13.
Hazmat13  +   1093d ago
The Last Of Us and Metro Last Light are my main games for next year the rest are just extra but i still getting those!
Memo-Xen x3100  +   1093d ago
With no delays spring should be amazing.

Y_5150  +   1093d ago
Super Mario 3d land sequel
The Last of Us
Luigi's mansion 2!
MultiConsoleGamer  +   1093d ago
The Last of Us has GOTY written all over it.

But for me the biggest title of 2013 will be GTA V. Counting the days...
black911  +   1093d ago
Beyond Two Souls
The Last Of Us

My top 2 games
microgenius  +   1093d ago
hey kratos has returned
Embeepee  +   1092d ago
Is this site run by Sony by any chance? :P
Andrespetmonkey  +   1092d ago
Go away pig.

I put GeoW judgement in the notable games list... and only 2 of the 5 writers are Sony fanboys.
Embeepee  +   1092d ago
That's 2 too many
