Prototype Thesis and Elveon can easily move in my top 15 if they build on whats been shown so far. This list is based on How I feel about these games based on reading and seeing this is not the usual hype only lists. You dissagree?, no one asked your opinion on games *I'm* looking forward to the most.
is elveon and thesis going on ps3 to because i could of swear i saw a artical saying it was and power i didnt disagree with cha im just asking
When it comes to this site you know you have a problem when you're getting flamed for mentioning 360 titles in a "Most Anticipated Games" 360 thread. My personal prefference can not be dissagreed with from PS3 fanboys that will not be playing many of these titles. LOL The mental health issues members on this site have are amazing. #1.1, It was coming to PS3 but I remember reading that they canceled it, things could change who knows. I listed what games I want to play and the list is mixed with multiplatform and exclusive titles.
Nice list, PoG. 360 is kicking ASS this year. And all ps3 has is like three good games this year lol. IT'S PS3'S YEAR!!!!! ROFL!
I read about these titles and many could be great. Also games like: Warhound Infernal Sabotage Dead Island Halo Wars Conan Hyborian Adventures Tales of Vesperia Warhammer could fit some niches too.
Most people would disagree that the list is pretty week. Not many of the games will generate the amount of hype that is needed to sell consoles. Maybe those games fit very well to you and your world but in the real world that isn't happening.
What a horrible list. You poor Xbot. Just think how great your list could be if you were smart enough to buy a PS3. Have fun playing those mostly mediocre games.
You have beef with the list because you're Sony fanboys, simple. lol It may be a weak list to you but thats besides the point. lol I don't need input from PS3 fanboys I don't care what you Sony fucers consider a stellar lineup trolling in here doesn't make sense maybe we can talk PS3 games in PS3 game threads. lol PS3 fanboys and their mental problems lol You are attacking me and replying-dissagreeing with me because of games I wan't?. lol Only on N4G and the 90% PS3 fanboy members. WOW!.
il tell you the real list 1#gow2 2#gow2 3#gow2 4#gow2 5#gow2 its the only game you've got!
dont get mad at ps3 people, they are looking foward to little big planet for god sakes. Also home, which is totally awsome killer shi#. MGS4 and resistance are the only exclusives on the system which are worth sh#t and if the developers wanted to make more than 2x their money all theyd have to do is port them to 360.
I really didn't like the list.
me too... your name look awfully familiar though... My top 5 exclusives Gears Fable Ninja Alan Wake (please i want this game this year) Too Human (The more i here about it, the more i want it)
list aint bad. quite shocked to not see ninja gaiden up there. But then again, ninja gaiden isn't the avg 360 owners game. I wish ninja gaiden was coming to ps3 the controller would be so much better for this game. I never played black so i don't know how well it played but the 360 controller is very stiff not ideal for the type of fast paced action required for sigma. :( i guess i will just have to get used to it
You'd be suprised how good the controls feel... You just have to try it to beleive me. Remember this game was developed for the xbox and its controller.
And the controls are pretty simple. I like the controls on 360 better than the original xbox.
yea but 360 controllers are stiffer than ps3. The stiff controllers is what gives it advantage in shooters but in a fast paced game a stiff controller isn't best. Regardless it won't be as bad as playing a straight up fighter so i am sure after playing for an hr i will get used to it.
and Iv always hated it because of the loose sticks. It wasnt that bad for PS1 but nowadays the same design is geting old.
well my top 3 im not intrested in 360 games except for this 3 is 1. age of conan 2. mass effect( i rented and now i regret it cus it was funner then i thought) 3. fable 2 ( i kno i bashed it along time ago but i saw preview of it in youtube looks pretty sick
Gears of War 2 at #1? Yay for originality! NOT We've seen nothing on the game. Nothing. I'm sorry, but I don't start getting hyped for something until I've seen at least one pic. Gears 1 was good, but not the fantastic game people have made it out to be. It had issues and until I'm sure those issues have been fixed, I will remain skeptical. I could think of many more games that deserve that number one spot, but to each their own.
Why does it have to be original?? You know its gonna be the most anticipated game regardless of what you put at the top spot, even though you wanna be 'original'. If everyone puts it at the top spot its because it is the most anticipated game. Everyone isnt trying to trick you. Maybe its not on your top spot, but for many people it is. But, just like you said "to each his own"
Well, I just get tired of looking at all these top ten lists and seeing the same things. Not only that, but websites have been "previewing" Gears 2 when there is nothing to preview (except a CG trailer that lasted about one minute). If you start a game with that much hype, chances are it wont live up to your expectations. That's all I'm saying.
gears 1 was good back in 2006 but i really don't see that game stacking up in 2008 but i could be proven wrong and i am sure the die hard fans don't see it that way. But that mechanic of seek cover kill this wave of enemies walk around a little seek cover kill that wave of enemies Lets see the improvements they make though.
I understand what your saying but...think of YOUR most favourite game, arent you gonna put the sequel to that game on your most antipated games list?...you're gonna be hyped for it and you're gonna try to break down every detail to find out whats gonna be new. Thats whats going on here. Gears is now the top IP for the xbox so everyones wanting a sequel, and everyone wants to know details. The hype right now is just people getting excited for the game...the hype around release is what should make you mad. Edit - @ Sonarus You can say that about every sequel out there. It was good in 2006...but theyre not re-releasing the same game. Look at your beloved mgs the same way. It was good when it was first released...and its gonna be good 10 years later
"the hype around release is what should make you mad." Good point. :/
are really revolutionary and actually strays from the formula so much, it was better than the first game? Anyone?
My list: 1: Grid 2: Tiberium Wars 3: Battlefield Bad Company 4: Unreal 3 Gee, guess what kind of games I like...
tactical MP FPS and racing games am i right?
Zomg, how did you know?
where is NINJA GIADEN 2. That game is going to be so awsome. That was my favorite last gen game(I didnt have a gamecube tho). But I guess the people who write these articles couldent finish that one.
No Alan Wake, NG2, Left4Dead, SC5, or project offset? This list = fail. 360 needs at LEAST a top ten list this year. Top five would only work for PS3.... no... top three I think. But with all these amazing 360 games, how is this PSturd's year? U mean year to not suck quite as much as last year? Is that what this year is? I get it now!
YOU might think the PS3 still sucks and is going down the sh!tter this year..... while Sony is laughing all the way to the bank now that they're outselling the 360 every month by over 200,000 units they also laugh to the bank knowing that Blu-Ray won and now they'll make hundreds of millions $ because of it YOU might think it's not the PS3's year- most other people and Sony don't care because they see the ass-whupping the PS3 serves up at retail and all the amazing games coming out this year and in 09 (like your beloved GOW3)
Why would you, me, or anyone here give two sh1ts what a big, greedy corporation like Sony or M$ are doing on the way to any bank? I care about great games, and 360 has more of 'em. And you and I both know PS3 is only selling more right now because Blew-ray finally won the format war. PPL want HD movies. It's as simple as that. Why do you think no games are selling? LOL. And 200,000 more each month? Recheck your numers lol. That's way off. Must be a typo. I forgive you. http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-...
2 of 5 games on this list are multiplats... ;)
"Most Anticipated games" can't be multi platform?. lol. I didn't see any mention of Exclusive list in the post. PS3 fanboys and their mental sickness, almost child-like belligerence. To the PS3 fanboys: Don't come at me with PC/360 excuses, console exclusive is console exclusive not mater how you spin it.
But why are you bragging about console exclusives when I can simply play them on the pc, without buying a 360?
PoG, my bitter friend...we actually have a vast number of Exclusives to look forward to. That's the difference between you and I.
guess what game will sell the most. GTA4, and its multiplatform. And it will sell twice as much on 360 than on ps3.
2 of your top 5 aren't even exclusive, while 1 and 3 will definitely be on PC later. I didn't think Xbox was in THIS bad a state in 08, but, year of the PS3 and all.
great ..Playsation brand title GTA stolen to xbox and become anticipated great.its one of the bones sony has thrown to the hungry old xbox owners..hahahahaha..DMC4 dint even scratch and this will too..ya enjoy bots enjoy....we are getting new mega million ips.which u get to steal when 720 launch...
Not a great list if you ask me, unimpressive for a console in it's 3rd year. Ah well, I'm just glad I also have a PS3.
Gears2 is great the others are umm... so-so.
far cry 2. http://www.youtube.com/watc... alone in the dark http://www.youtube.com/watc... the chronicles of riddick http://www.youtube.com/watc... grid http://www.gametrailers.com... and grand theft auto.
My top 5 1 - Gears of War 2 2 - Ninja Gaiden 2 3 - Grand Theft Auto IV 4 - Fable 2 5 - Halo Wars
so many good games to look forward to on xbox 360.all i can say to you sony bots is to jump in and get rid of your ps3
