Six Games to Still Look Forward to in 2009

As games begin to get pushed back into next year and it slowly begins to look like all you'll be left with is sequel after sequel, here are six new titles that (as of now) you'll still be able to enjoy while the leaves are turning golden brown outside. While there are many more, these are definitely some you should be waiting with bated breath for.

I thought Arkham Asylum was fun. I think I might pick it up.
I wonder if Borderlands will have a demo. I'm still a little iffy about it.

CaptainKratos3144d ago

i too am iffy about borderlands.just have to wait and see. dragon age and batman are the only ones on this list that i would like to try out.

Blaze9293144d ago

I never thought I would love a Batman game as much as I did Arkham Asylum until I played that demo. Instantly fell in love with the game and became a day 1 purchase for me.

Borderlands looks cool and interesting but I feel as if I have not yet seen enough on that game and still skeptical.

Brutal Legend is something I think alot of people will pass and overlook on. Hopefully a demo comes out for that title becuase if not, I will be one of those people who pass on it.

the games i will be buying this year are as follows

ps3: MAG, uncharted2 and demons souls

360: Halo odst, forza3, l4d2, battlefield bad company2, modern warfare2, wolfenstein, borderlands and brutal legend. plus all the other mult-platforms that i buy for the 360.

i reckon i am going to be buying more than 10 games before the year is out.

it's great to be a gamer and not a fanboy.

SuperM3144d ago

Funny. This list didnt mention the 3 biggest games this holiday. MW2, AC2 and UC2.

PotNoodle3144d ago

king dong, no, MAG has not been delayed.

king dong33144d ago

i hope so, coz that is probably my most anticipated game this year

JL3144d ago

If you'll notice in the description there it says he's listing "new games" as opposed to sequels like he mentioned. So that's why no UC2 or Forza 3 or ODST etc.

SuperM3144d ago

^^ but i have the impression that most of the delayed games are sequels aswell. Bioshock 2, Mafia2, Splinter Cell Conviction, Starcraft 2, and i suppose Red dead redemption is kind of a sequel to Red dead revolver.

Dont really remember any more delayed games.

Lifendz3144d ago

Assasin's Creed 2
Modern Warfare 2
Batman (after playing that demo I'm sold)
Uncharted 2

callahan093144d ago

My 5, only counting games with confirmed 09 releases:

1. Uncharted 2
2. Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time
3. Muramasa: The Demon Blade
4. Batman: Arkham Asylum
5. Halo: ODST

ABizzel13144d ago

U2, MW2, and AC2 are no shiggadey games. Meaning no shiggadey everyone's going to buy them, so it's nice to be reminded other games are coming out that you may forget about.

JL3144d ago (Edited 3144d ago )

And I'll be picking up 4 of these 6. Batman, Borderlands, Alpha Protocol, and Dragons Age. Not to mention a few more that weren't on this list.

DelbertGrady3144d ago

Brütal Legend!!! Tim Schaefer and Double Fine are one of few studios out there who still dare make niched games. They deserve all the recognition they can get. And the game looks damn fun as well =)

RealityCheck3144d ago

Agreed, there are a few developers that have such a good track record for quality and innovation that I order their games without hesitation. Tim Schaefer is one of them. I played Psychonauts several times and enjoyed every second of it. Looking forward to Brutal Legends.

shutupandplay3144d ago

-Forza 3
-Halo 3: ODST
-Shadow complex
-Modern Warefare 2
Those right there are my six.

Mo0eY3144d ago

3 multiplats, a XBLA title, an expansion, and a wannabe. FAIL.

DonCorneo3144d ago (Edited 3144d ago )

-Boarderlands (it's borderlands, which runs better on the ps3 and pc)
-Forza 3 (this is the worst choice -- go with shift, blur, or dirt)
-L4D2 (is that an expansion pack?)
-Halo 3: ODST (another expansion pack, MAG will be better)
-Shadow complex (played when i was a kid, it was called contra)
-Modern Warefare 2 (going to be laggy on xbl)

Saaking3144d ago

The bots refusal to buy a PS3 is making them miss some of the best and most revolutionary games this gen. I bought a 360 and now I don't have to miss anything. If possible I recommend that every buy both a PS3 and 360 or PS3 and PC.

LuHawk23144d ago

Look more b!tches crying over somebodies top list of games to play in their own opinion. If thats his top six games than thats just what it is

Batman and Borderlands look good, not sure about the rest.

4 other games I would have picked would be...

Modern Warfare 2
Forza 3
Uncharted 2
& Dirt 2

I'd say GT5 aswell but that might not come out this year :(

iPirates3144d ago

Although I feel this list is quite incomplete, I can say I'm definitely looking forward to most titles on that list.

After playing the Arkham Asylum demo, I'm thoroughly pumped for the game.

JL3144d ago

Like I said above, the article seems to imply he's picking only "new games" aka games that aren't sequels, so that's why I think some big titles are absent.

For me this year I'll be getting:
Batman: AA
Dragon Age
Demon's Souls
Alpha Protocol
Uncharted 2
Operation Flashpoint (might get knocked to maybe list if MAG comes out)
And MAG and GT5 if they make it

Then might borrow gf's DS to play Scribblenauts.

Of course there's so many good games coming that I probably won't be able to afford all of them (especially if MAG and GT5 DO come out). Especially with alot of them hitting in October. So might be more like Batman this month. Pick up Afrika maybe in the empty September, Then UC2 and Demon's Souls in October (pushing the others back), Then November pick up that Alpha Protocol and Dragon Age. December can maybe pick up another from that list, or what I can't get around to, the rest will go out as requests to friends and family for christmas presents. Damn there are too many games. And people were complaining about delays lol
