Most Anticipated Next Gen Games

"There are so many enticing games coming out this year. With the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One around the corner combined with the Wii U finally picking up steam, we wanted to take a look at our most anticipated title for each one of these platforms coming out this year. It’s hard to choose just one game for each system but that’s part of the point in narrowing it down to what you are looking most forward to. Join BootHammer as we take a look at our top picks for 2013." (Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Forza Motorsport 5, Killzone: Shadow Fall, PS4, Wii U, Xbox One)

If I had to pick only one exclusive for PS4, I would choose Second Son over Shadow Fall. Shadow Fall looks amazing, but Second Son looks insanely fun. And the hero is basically Troy Baker (voice and mo-cap) so yes, I'm definitely sold lol.
BootHammer  +   360d ago
You couldn't go wrong with either! Second Son does look incredible, can't wait for both =)

It looks a little better than ps3 ?? knack looks poor,Killzone doesn't even look as good as the tech demo for the ps3 way bk at E3 2006 ???
iamnsuperman  +   360d ago

Does any game look like that demo? No even if we are ignoring the change in art style.

edit: Actually I am wrong (just rewatched the 2006 tech demo). A lot of games look better than it. It actually looks very dated and bland despite being CGI pre-rendered hopeful stuff

yeah man, Killzone and Second Son will be the two next gen titles to watch closely.
i'd add DriveClub for some high speed driving awesomeness, and Quantum Break cause that trailer makes me wanna know more.

I know we didn't see gameplay but the order 1886 has me very interested

But at launch

Drive club
watch dogs
Knack but I may get this after a price drop

I so want a badass ratchet and clank game for ps4

The most stunning game at E3 for me was MGS5

I agree with Starfox. Killzone 2 tech demo blew me away and was my sole reason for owning a PS3. KZ Shadow Fall looks like a Crysis wannabe.

Knack LOL? Please don't get me started on Knack. Knack is the type of game only a fanboy would love. The Division was most impressive IMO.

Why is Knack a fanboy game? It looks like a fantastic platformer, to me.
starfox79  +   360d ago
Well said mate,glad u agree,anyone that thinks ps4 games look noticeably better than ps3 are smoking something,with GTA,WATCHDOGS,TITAN FALL,GHOSTS,BLACKLIST,basicall y every game is hitting ps3 and 360 so getting them to jump ship to essentially play the same games just a little better looking with the same controls i can't see it happening,wiiu has exclusives that will sell consoles and has the best 2 3rd party multiplat games coming this year WATCHDOGS and SPLINTERCELL.

Whilst I'm looking forward to a mauling from my friends on Forza 5's Drivatar I'm still more interested in Project Spark and Quantum Break.

7 - Forza 5 (XB1)
8 - Quantom Break (XB1)

10 - Killzone Shadowfall (PS4)

I don't even think we've seen Quantum Break yet, I still have no idea what it will be like. Crimson Dragon? Ha, Killer Instinct is a reboot of a game many people have never heard of, and fighting games aren't even very popular. KI and CD are nowhere near as interesting as The Division. CD looks like a level out of Dark Void.
Thomper  +   360d ago
Hey Slimey,

It may have escaped your attention, but it was a list of MY anticipated games.

Whilst it is delightful that you feel the need to criticise my choice, I really think you needn't have bothered, because I really couldn't care less what you think.

My selection is open to change, and I already realised I missed destiny off!

Anyway, you go and play nicely, and try and remember your manners next time. We are all (mainly) free thinking individuals with our own taste. Try to respect that at least.
PiperMCFierceson  +   360d ago
I'm going to pick kzsf just because its earlier release date is easier to wait for. And titan fall.

My favourites:
Second Son.
Forza 5.

Not getting the X1 though so Forza will be out of reach for me.

Killzone is the game to get at Ps4 launch along with Ps+ we will get a version of Drive Club for "free", perhaps a small fee for a full game uppgrade (yay) and I get the feeling Knack will be on Plus soon to attempt to boost system sales. ATM Second son is the best game revealed yet in my eyes, Killzone and Drive Club should keep me busy til then though.

The Division, Destiny, Watch Dogs, Infamous Second Son, Killzone Shadow Fall, The Order 1886. Those are the games that have my attention for next gen and at this point will be probable purchases for my PS4. I'm sooooo looking forward to GamesCon to see how many new titles will be revealed at that event. After that, my anticipation will turn to TGS for even more Sony goodness. I am also looking forward to the free psplus indie titles and DriveClub psplus version, which I'm sure I'll upgrade to the full version if the price is right.
