While this year still has yet to come to an end with it's stellar upcoming titles, there are a ton of other titles releasing sooner than you might realize. Check out the full list after the link!
February/March looks crazy. Vita launch Syndicate Mass Effect 3 Max Payne 3 Twisted Metal The Darkness 2 Yakuza: Dead Souls Dragon's Dogma Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning I want them all :/
Half the games mentioned in the article are almost guaranteed to be mediocre.
More like most of them are guaranteed to be great . If you are so jaded you can't feel it , i'd say the issue is more on your end , than on the mentioned games'
Like your amount of bubbles. Ohhhhhhhhhhh!
No year will beat 2011 this gen.
It's been great quantity wise, but the quality has been a bit lax.
That gets said every year of the current year
Besides a few PS3 exclusives, the first half of the year was really disappointing. Next year Febuary/March is already completely blowing away this years.
PlayStation Vita is launching. The Last Guardian Street Fighter x Tekken Ni no Kuni Tales of Graces F Ghost Recon Future Soldier Dragons Dogma Max Payne 3 Ninja Gaiden 3 Mass Effect 3 Soul Calibur V Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm: Generations Twisted Metal Starhawk Wii U Launch Final Fantasy XIII-2 Halo 4 Final Fantasy Versus XIII Luigi's Mansion 2 Kid Icarus Uprising Resident Evil Revelations Assassin's Creed 3 Uncharted Golden Abyss Escape Plan Dragons Crown Persona 4 The Golden I'd argue that 2012 is looking just as good, and I can't wait.
I wouldn't count on Versus just yet. I was hoping it still might come out by 2012 but unless we get some more footage by the end of the year I won't particularly expect it.
Not to mention Uncharted for the Vita and The Last Guardian which is not my type of game but with no doubt will be big for PS3.
There's only so much one can play.. all I need is my precious.
I'd add Bioshock Infinite, Asura's Wrath and the new Tomb Raider to the above lists. 2012 has a lot of great games to look forward to already.
Nothing is going to top Gears 3, Uncharted 3, Skyrim, Batman:Arham City all in one year. Thats an amazing lineup! Im excited for: Mass Effect 3 Prototype 2 Bioshock: Infinite Darksiders 2 but those games in a straigh up comparison are heavily favoring this year!
Mass effect alone is compared to those titles.
I doubt it. This year's going to be pretty damn hard to beat. Gears of War 3 and Uncharted 3 in the same year, tons of amazing GOTY-contending third-party games (Portal 2 and Arkham City, for instance), and tons of quality casual games, too (Dance Central 2, anyone?). I'm really looking forward to plenty of games in 2012, but 2011 was an amazing year. Maybe the best since I've been a gamer.
Dunno , so far aside third person shooters and fps (and skyrim+dark souls) , 2012 is already lining up almost better in every other genre of gaming .
Like what genres? RPG is the only one I can see that may end up having a better lineup. Racers (Forza 4, Dirt 3) had a big year this year, and I don't see any puzzle games in 2012 being better than Portal 2. And for action games, Arkham City and Infamous 2 were big this year. I'm not even aware of any big action releases next year except Ninja Gaiden III.
fighting games (sfxt , soul calibur , persona 4 ...etc) , Jrpgs , RPGS , survival horror , stealth/assassination (hitman ? ) , you also forgot stuff like Asura's wrath , bioshock infinite , darksiders 2 , binary domain and more . granted not all of them will be major sales or exclusives , but they seems easily as good if not potentially better than some of the 2011 releases , almost matching it month by month
JRPGs are RPGs. That's like separating Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 because Battlefield 3 is slightly more of a simulation. You're really stretching it by going into sub-genres and trying to get more specific. I could list the investigation genre and say no game next year would match L.A. Noire. I'd argue many of the genres you listed won't be better next year, either (survival horror? Did you forget about Dead Space 2 already?). And I didn't forget any of those. Your argument was genres. I mean, if we're going to get into an argument over amount of games, how about the following: Gears of War 3, Uncharted 3, Killzone 3, Resistance 3, Halo Anniversary, Infamous 2, Forza 4, Dirt 3, Dance Central 2, Portal 2, Kinect Sports: Season Two, Crysis 2, Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim, Deus Ex, Child of Eden, Arkham City, Bulletstorm, L.A. Noire, Skyward Sword, Dark Souls, Mortal Kombat, LittleBigPlanet 2, Dead Space 2, The Witcher 2, ... (and the list goes on and on and on...)
you're really reading too much into my post i'd say . I hardly had that much calculated when counting both jrpg and rpg asides . Especially when both genre are actually quite vastly different enough to be seen as such . And i hardly listed everything , you mentioned there was nothing on the action side besides Ninja gaiden 3 ... i just feel otherwise with stuff like asura , darksiders binary domain etc ..
Yea 2012 is pretty much a big deal to me, I really just want FFVs13 (Date hasn't even been confirmed yet.).. But the sleeper hits are the ones that surprise the most and the ones I'm looking most forward to.
Where's the love for these games? Farcry 3 Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Metro: Last Light
Out of that list Final Fantasy XIII and Mass Effect 3 are the only day one titles I'll be picking up. The only game I picked up so far this year on day one was Gears of War 3, Uncharted 3 will be the next. In general I don't pick up a lot of releases on day one anyway and overall I am just not into gaming as big as I once was. At this point I'd rather put time and money towards real life adventures as opposed to living them through a screen.
Just ME3 and maybe Silent Hill Downpour for me, what happened to MGS: Rising?
Alot of games to look forward to, you guys also all missed Hitman: Absolution. Looks like 2 years in a row I'll be broke.
Definitely. 2012 is looking better than 2011 and it's all because PS Vita, Twisted Metal and The Last Guardian were delayed to 2012.
Yes,2012 will be even bigger because expect for all the new games and the ones which haven't been annouched yet,we will be get ps vita and Wi U too with a lot of games for both. The only problem will be the money to get all those..
I can definitively state that both 2011 and 2012 are the biggest years for gaming in this generation. With a list of well over 20 Triple AAA titles between 2011 and 2012 plus all the AA's and the introduction of next next Gen handhelds and 1 NNG. console the WiiU there is no doubt that this is the greatest time to be a gamer!
If those were the best games coming out next year. 2012 would be a worse year than 2005. And 2005 was BAD.
Not saying that list is full of bad games but I'm only getting about 4 of them.
Well lets see here, next year will see vita, wiiu and obviously a new call of duty. As for what could match Batman Skyrum Uncharted Gears of war 3 Well...the last guardian, metal gear rising, starhawk,ninja gaiden 3, twisted metal, max payne 3, mass effect 3, halo 4, dead or alive 5, soul calibur 5, street fighter x tekken, resident evil 6? I cant believe I am going to say this...but final fantasy x2? Sly4, for me jak n daxter 4 collection, (GTA5 hopefully) E3 will let us know whether or not this year could be match, I mean there already rumors of dead space 3 being worked on for next year, also a new splinter cell and assasins creed. Still no word on the agent. Hopefully those rumors of syphon filter 4(ps3xvita) are true. Other than these I cant think of anything else really.
