The only thing that kept FFXV off this list was the lack of 2014 confirmation.

We NEED a year of the RPG.

This gen needs to show a lot of these younger gamers that " hey games aren't just military FPS shooters ".

I remember when 1/20 games released was an FPS...maybe

Not it seems every 4th game is some random unneeded FPS game that is just a " checklist" game.

We need more:

* RPG's

* Strategy/tactical RPGS

* 3D Platformers

* 3D Platoformer/adventure/collect- a-thons

* New IP's...New IP's...New IP's....

* Every new IP or game or series or character is chance for history to be made, is chance to establish another well known character into our memories that we want to play as for decades to come.

Last gen there was more wasted opportunity and potential than all other Era's/ Generations before.

Completely Forgot about WildStar but that Art Style is amazing.

They also forgot Bravely Default for 3DS which is released Feb. 7th and is really the game that kickstarts this whole " year of RPG" thing off.

I'm hoping it does well, as I would love to see Bravely Second in 2015.


No mention of X? We RIOT!!!

*grabs garbage can*

How come there's no X on those walls!?

juaburg1018d ago

Grabs a baby! Noooow they'll listeeen! X is going to be one of the best rpg's of this generation... I bought a Wii just so that i can play Xenoblade. Im 22 hours in and my god it is an amazing game... Its one of the best games of the 7th generation by far. Just a pity it werent that widely released :(

This is an excellent list, but perhaps they left out Persona 5?

Snookies121018d ago

Doubtful that P5 will come out this year, perhaps in Japan by the end of 2014. That's a maybe though. We'll see, hopefully I'm wrong and it does end up releasing before 2015! I'm too stoked for that game.

rextraordinaire1017d ago

Well it's been confirmed that p5 will release at the end of the year in japan. I suppose it's gonna be early 2015 in the west, it always takes some time for them to localise games, like it did for Catherine and Dragon's Crown.

Already have FFX HD Vita paid off, Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMIX, I'll pay off soon enough and Lightning Returns Collector's Edition paid and done.

Bring on the RPGs.
