Game designers are just hitting their stride with the current generation of videogame systems, and it shows with what we have to look forward to over the next few months - beginning with what will be a hot game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3:
Whne put into perspective; there really isn't a whole lot for me to get amped up about this year. Siren is the new king of horror, so Silent Hill, Dead Space & Alone in the dark seem tame to me now. I'm not even considering Fallout as a big game for some reason. I know many people seem to be all about it but it just looks kind of boring to me. The way you stop and target a guy is just kind of disjointing I suppose. Star Wars was crap. Motorstorm 2 just isn't my kind of game; I'm sure I'll buy it but I won't play it much. Like the 1st one, I'm guessing. Left 4 Dead I'll get for my kick ass PC, but even still won't be too excited about it, either. Socom games were never my cup of tea and will probably still be playing Warhawk until the servers go down. I'll buy Socom to support it, but fear, just like with motorstorm 2, I won't play it much. I will get Resistance 2 for sure, but stacked up against last year this year just doesn't have it. Uncharted, R&C, Cod4 were pretty special games and nothing on the radar seems to come close this year. MGS4 was alright, but it is now behind us. I wish Sony would've had a few RPG's on their table this christmas. That'd have went a long way in a sea of FPS and rehashed action games and racers.
What about LittleBigPlanet? And Wipeout HD? There ARE games that you'll find great this year, it's a shame you're not too excited about most of the titles but hey that's your opinion. I too am waiting for an RPG but I don't want to see just a rehash of all the same elements. We've seen that already. I want to see an RPG that really reinvents the genre WITHOUT introducing lame real-time battles (cmon where's the strategy in that). Even just a story-based game would be nice (loved MGS4 mainly because of its story). Something epic :)
"The way you stop and target a guy is just kind of disjointing I suppose." You don't HAVE to stop and target..
get them hoes on the block so i can buy my games LOL IM JOKING, before people think im serious and report me to the feminist groups, MY WALLETS GONA NEED RESUSCITATION
jamie if anyone took that seriously they seriously need to geta life agree my wallets in pain
my wallets gonna be empty this year. i cant decide what i want. for me its like gears of war 2, cod5 or far cry 2. i cnat decided which one to pick up and if i will regret buying one. im so confused on what to pre order
LBP is the biggest game in OCTOBER followed by Motorstorm 2/Fallout 3/Fable 2/Naruto/Socom etc cant believe that illeterates are writing articles nowadays
Fable 2's bigger in my opinion. But then again, Fable's #4 or so on my list of favorite games, so I'm kind of biased.
- Motorstorm 2 - Resistance 2 - Killzone 2 - COD5 - LBP 300$ for me to be happy this year.
Killzone 2 is out next year buddy. everyone is also forgetting about FarCry2. i'm getting that over Fable 2. also Motorstorm Pacific Rift comes out Oct. 28th. that'll be an xmas present. I'm personally dropping money down on Fracture SOCOM Dead Space FarCry2 Resistance 2 Xmas presents include Saints Row 2 LittleBigPlanet Fable 2 Motorstorm Pacific Rift Fallout 3 Gears of War 2 Left 4 Dead Birthday present Tiberium
Yea what kind of crap article is this? LBP should be one of the buggest surprise hits of the year. But this Holiday season is one ridiculous year for gaming, way too many AAA titles to afford lol. Its a great time for gaming.
My wallet is so screwed over the next few months.... Necessary sacrifice ;)
my wallet is gonna be so skinny:)
I'm going to have an anorexic wallet soon. This list is lacking on the PS3 side so I'm guessing he's more of a 360 fan.
whether u like it or not ps3 has the best gaming lineup for Fall especially October Socom LBP Naruto Motorstorm 2 Resistance 2 4/5 games are coming out in October shocking thing is that tool left out LBP
Woah... did you just say Naruto?
Lol, nothing wrong with Naruto. To be honest, it's pretty fun and a good fighting game. The graphic makes it feel like you're watching an anime and it has Japanese dubbing. I personally can't justify buying Naruto for $60 but I know some can. I definitely will buy it when it's cheaper since I really enjoy the demo.
LBP, Fallout 3, Far Cry 2, Wipeout HD,Resistance2, GoW2, all definite release day purchases for me. Fable2, Midnight Club LA, Dead Space will have to wait,probably get them once people have traded.
God this is going to get expensive. He is even missing some games I am looking forward to. I am thinking I will have to put Force Unleashed on the same list as Too Human and pick up later as I am currently just starting my NHL09 carreer and finishing Tales of Vesperia so I havent touched IU or Mercenaries yet (but I did buy them). As for the coming games, here are the ones I am looking forward too and the choices I need to make: Forced Unleashed (may have to backburner)[rockband 2 and Pure are backburnered for sure) Brothers in Arms (definite pickup as I loved the earlier ones) Silent Hill (will backburner) Fracture Rise of the Argonauts, Dead Space (need more info) Fable II (definite) Farcry 2 (definite) Fallout 3 Gears of War 2 Endwar Call of Duty Last Remnant Prince of Persia (perhaps tomb raider) A snowboarding game (I think there will be two to choose from, lets see) Sacred 2 Then there are other games, but not sure if they will be released this year or next year.
oct 21 ... so many games are coming out on that day
Happy to be gamer. Loads of quality coming up for every console /PC.
How the hell did they leave Far Cry 2 off the list (coming October 21st)? That's my personal GotY right there. No other game matters much to me, this year.
Fallout 3/MGS4=Games of the year
lol ok GTAIV is Game of the year... /sarcasm
"Still, that was exactly the case last week as I agonized over the fall and winter release schedule for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and, to a lesser degree, Sony’s PlayStation 3." HAHAHA! The third sentence! OPEN your eyes ps3 fanboys, this site is SOOOOOO biased! I dare you guys to leave this site...the reality of the gaming world will shock you LOL!
Motorstorm 2 LBP Naruto Bioshock ES Resistance 2 SOCOM Wipeout HD vs Gears 2 and Fable 2 and L4D ONLY which lineup is better
Why are people so hyped for Naruto? Xbox already has Bioshock btw.
The PS3 line up is too hot and unrivaled. Only delusional xbots are arguing otherwise. Their line up is fking pathetic so they think the PS3 line up must be like December 2006.

This holiday SOCOM Confrontation (9 out of 10 - day one for me) LittleBigPlanet (10 out of 10 - day one for me) Bioshock (solid 8.5 out of 10) Eternal Sonata (solid 8 out of 10 for sure) Motorstorm 2 (8.8 out of 10) Resistance 2 (9 out of 10 - day one for me) Naruto (8.6 out of 10) Fat Princess (9 out of 10 - day one for me) Wipe Out HD (8.7 out of 10) WhiteKnight Chronicles (9 out of 10 - day one for me) HOME In 2009 Killzone 2 (9 out of 10 - day one for me) Infamous (9 out of 10 - day one for me) Tekken 6 (9 out of 10 - day one for me) EyePet (9 out of 10) Ico game (day one, you better believe it!) Gran Turismo 5 (day one) MAG (day one) Heavy Rain (9 out of 10 - day one for me) God of war 3 (day one) Uncharted 2 (day one) So many, Im losing track!!! And then the multi platform titles this holiday season Farcry 2 (8.3 out of 10) Mirror's edge (8.5 out of 10) Fallout 3 (8.3 out of 10) Streetfighter 4 (7 out of 10) In 2009 Resident Evil 5 (day one) Dead space Last Remnant (7.7 out of 10) Star Ocean 4 (8 out of 10) Bionic commando (7.7 out of 10) Lord of shadows (7.9 out of 10) HOT DAMN!
Look at me guys! I am going to list the games I want that are not out yet. I am going to tell you what their score is going to be and I am going to tell you when I am going to get it! Because I know all of you care so much!
I own both and the ps3s lineup is way better then the 360's. Their exclusives blow the 360's away!!!!! Wake up and smell the piss boy!
LOL. what exclusives? the best game for PS3 this fall is Bioshock--a 360 PORT, LMFAO. poor droids. Gears 2 > you
I started paying off games last month to prepare for this. List of games I'm getting for sure LBP Socom Fallout 3 Fable 2 Gears of War 2 Left 4 Dead MotorStorm 2 Resistance 2 The rest ill just gamefly.
Its probably because most of you come from a younger generation. Oh well. First day pick ups for me are. Pure NBA2K9 Fable2 Midnight Club L.A. Motorstorm 2 COD WAW Quantum Solace Prince of Persia Im gonna buy more games then this, but these are just the ones Im getting day one. Im really not worried about my wallet, for I have enough money to buy every game I want this year, but I just need every game not listed to prove their worth to me. Especially Gears 2 and Resistance 2.
