10 games not named GTA 5 to get excited for in 2013

GameZone writes, "2013 is a few days away. With a new year comes a new line-up of must-have games, and boy, is 2013 filled with them. While changes to release dates will be sure to happen, as of now, there's a solid list of games that should have everyone excited. Unfortunately, I can't list Watch Dogs and Rainbow Six: Patriots among those, because who knows if those will release by the end of 2013. But even without those, there are 10 games NOT NAMED Grand Theft Auto V that every gamer should be looking forward to. The following list is in no particular order, so don't freak the f**k out." (BioShock: Infinite, Crysis 3, Lego: City Undercover, PC, PS3, Rayman Legends, SimCity, Xbox 360)

I'd replace Tomb Raider with Beyond Two Souls or Sly Cooper. Tomb Raider just doesn't interest me especially with some of the recent announcements of the game such as she can't swim. Plus people who have played the game also haven't been impressed.

I'm more hyped for Tomb Raider than Last of Us..
Riderz1337  +   555d ago
Setting yourself up for disappointment. Lara can't swim which completely disregards a huge element (water) in the game. Also the graphics don't seem very well done. Low res textures everywhere and I've seen the vegetation above the ground in some of the trailers.

My personal 10 (in no order at all.)

1. The Last of Us
2. South Park
3. Beyond Two Souls
4. The Walking Dead
5. Metal Gear Rising: Revengence
6. Dark Souls 2
7. Dead Space 3
8. God of War Ascension
9. GTA 5
10. This one is a fight between Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite. Neither one seems to be like a Day 1 buy, but both look alright enough to warrant a purchase.
Kingofwiiu  +   556d ago
uh huh. Monster Hunter Ultimate , Pikmin 3 , Rayman Legends , Wonderful 101 , Bayonetta 2 , Lego City and aliens colonial marines don't exist anymore ?

2. South park ? South park ?

It's their personal list. Make your own if you're all worked up over Wii U. Have you even followed the South Park game? It's looking pretty good so far... not in my top 10 of 2013, but it looks legit for a licensed game.

EDIT: Just saw your list below... it's heavily slanted toward Wii U, which is fine, just as ForgottenPhrophecy's list is slanted toward non-Nintendo console games.

I'm not interested in any game you listed. I actually don't have a Wii U, so to the best of my knowledge, I can't even get any of those games except Aliens (I could be wrong.) I am interested in Aliens, but that is nust my top 10. Rayman Legends does look fun though, I played a demo at Gamestop. South Park the Game is more than just "South park ?" because it is a full blown game that looks just like the TV show. I'm fully confident that it will be a AAA game. I bet that if South Park was coming to Wii U, you'd be interested in it.

Uh did you not read the "personal" part?
Sandmano  +   556d ago
Injustice is nothing to get excited about tried it.
jakmckratos  +   556d ago
Im not even excited for GTA. Too much hullabaloo over that game and I know it's good but it's just not my cup of tea. I am SO stoked for Last of Us.
Deeloc  +   556d ago

ThanatosDMC  +   556d ago
I just bought X3TC + AP and holy crap the game is addictive. I'm looking forward to X Rebirth too especially if they'll make the menus and commands much more user friendly.

Terran Defender start and I'm not having an easy time making money. I sold my Katana but accidentally sold 2-3 weapons. Bought a Valkerie and a Baldric instead. Every time i see a destroyer just makes me want more money so i could have one for myself and kill a whole sector so i can make my base.

Unless if I missed something, Ground Zeroes wasn't announced for a release next year, and I doubt it will come out next year, especially with Revengence's release coming up (even though the two are being worked on by different teams.)

ThanatosDMC  +   556d ago
Sim City looks bad right now. I'm surprised they said it looked good. Anno 2070 looks light years better than the game and that's their main competition right now and it's holding the city building crown. They're also aiming for a casual crowd which blew up their forums since gamers are afraid that it's gonna lose depth with how the economy would work.

Anyway, didnt know there was a Lego game like that... interesting.

What im looking forward to are:

1. DayZ (SA)
2. X rebirth
3. Aliens: Colonial Marines
4. Arma 3
5. Prison Architect
6. MGS5
8. Fallout 4
9. Mechwarrior Online minus the BS pay to win.
10. Blizzard to release a Diablo 3 expansion and it fails

You truly have become a true PC gamer... The PS3 community misses you. Drop by and visit every now and again :D

HaPpY nEw YeAr BrO!!!
ThanatosDMC  +   556d ago
I blame Steam sales. The game i've been playing is called X3: Albion Prelude is always in my mind now. I even thought of buying a joystick, which will be a new one for me.

My old MAG clanmates are trying to gather up again to play MAG and some other fps games, but after playing Planetside 2, it's hard to go back. Though the in-game communication in MAG is far superior to Planetside 2, it's just a better game.

I also have a lot of indie games and also need to install all those games i managed to get beta invited into. I've been wanting to try out Path of Exile but just havent gotten around to it.

So far nothing on the PS3 has gotten hold of my attention that cant also be played on the PC... probably till the new 2013 games come out. I'm at least playing my Vita from time to time but it's usually Front Mission 3 (ps1), Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, or Tekken 6.

I'm also using my Dualshock 3 to play my PC games.
aLiEnViSiToR  +   556d ago
its really a shame that The Last of Us is not on PC :[

Tales RPG addict  +   556d ago
Games I want in 2013 that will come out.
TALES OF XILLIA ( Will kick serious ASS)
Ni No Kuni Wrath of the White Witch
The Last of Us
Bioshock Infinite
Beyond Two Souls
Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes
Disgaea D2
The God & The Fate Revolution Paradox
Crysis 3
Dead Space 3
and more.

Thank God there's going to be some JRPG's for PS3 owners like me. I own a 360, but don't play it much.

BlaqMagiq24  +   556d ago
What I'm looking forward to:

The Last of Us
God of War: Ascension
Metal Gear Rising
Sly Cooper Thieves in Time
Tales of Xillia (Starting to gain interest)
Watch Dogs (If it comes next year)
urwifeminder  +   556d ago
Arma 3 is all i want this year.
SegaKnuckles86  +   556d ago
lawl @ the name. Really sick of die-hards that only rave over Rockstar games no matter their quality (some of which are lackluster, just look at the LA Noire hype last year and how quickly the game died off after it launched). People are idiots for buying a game only for some brand slapped on the box. No wonder Final Fantasy and Call of Duty games still sell millions of copies despite them sucking.
Godchild1020  +   556d ago
I bought L.A Noire, not just because it had Rockstar on the box, but because it was something different. It blended the NCIS/CSI games with the action adventure aspect of Mafia II. It was like Law & Order, but with better gameplay and no commercials. I enjoyed the title, because it wasn't the Rockstar title you would normally get. L.A Noire did get repetitive, but not like I had to play it in one go.

After playing the title I can't wait for Team Bondi's next game.
Godchild1020  +   556d ago
Am I the only see that there are two Wii U only games tagged, but no Wii U tag on this article?

2013 is the year of the gamer and if there are new systems released, it will make it one hell of a year.

Beyond Two Souls should be #1
