Here are the 10 most anticipated games of 2008.
10. Wii Fit (Wii)
9. Soul Calibur IV (PS3, Xbox 360)
8. Mario Kart (Wii)
These guys dont know gaming. No LBP? No Killzone 2? No FFXIII?
i highly doubt ff13 will be out next year...
And RE5 is? They already said it was coming 09. FFXIII should be on that list.
This made me laugh: "This is also one of the few PS3 console exclusives, but the real question is, how long will it stay that way? (about MGS)
They have said it a hundred times. I say it now:
METAL GEAR SOLID 4 IS ONLY FOR THE PLAYSTATION 3.
Why doesn't anyone get this!?
Little Big Planet
FF XIII Versus
White Knight Chronicles
God of War3
Gran Turismo 5
Star Ocean 4
Hot Shots Golf 5
4 NCSoft games
Sony's 2008 first party / third party exclusive lineup is absolutely insane.
PS3's lineup does look awesome in 08, I may have to buy one.
@tmatte lol thats the plan. Games sell consoles and ps3 is the console to own for the best games in 08. Quite a few of those games won't come out in 08 and quite a few games will come in 08 that havnt been announced yet. As for me MGS4 is currently standing as my most anticipated game of all time.
I thought it was still on "track" for 2008?
cant believe GTA IV is 6 and no gran turismo
Why is Star Wars on that list???
if you honestly think HALF of those games will make it out by next year, you're completely f*ckin nutz.
and we all already know MGS is coming to 360. when will you droids wakeup. "if you want to play MGS4 next year, you need to buy a PS3....because we are avoiding the SH1T out of this question, as usual, because you can also buy it a year later on 360."
What do you expect from a PC magazine? That list is horrible. Soul Calibur IV? It will probably be a good game but it's far from a top ten game.
Gears of War 2
hahahaha the only 360 Exclusive laeft to care about its still NOT EVEN CLOSE to FF13, GraN TuRISMO 5, MGS 4, Little Big PLanet, Socom, and sorry.... but KILLZONE IS GONNA DESTROY GEARS 2...... GEAS 2 ISN'T EVEN GONNA TOUCHHHHH KILLZONE 2. MARK MY WORDS
Final Fantasy XIII
List does fail indeed,badly.
I still cant beleive that ppl still thinks MGS4 is coming to 360 ( Wii fit shouldnt even be on it PPl shoul go to actual gyms or do acutal workout anyways i was expecting smash bro to be higher??
WTF are WiiFit and Mario Kart doing there? Those two spots belong to games like Alan Wake, GT5, Fable 2, FFXIII, KZ2?
Agreed!! What kind of list is this? Plus I love how the guy/girl still has some hope that the PS3 will give up MGS. Hah.
I'm looking forward to Mario Kart. Mario Kart games have always been great fun.
This seems to be personal opinion over anything else (or add revenue). No list is complete without Starcraft 2 at #1. If you disagree then tell me what other game has HOLIDAYS and PARADES in it's honor?
terrible list!! Yeah lemme tell ya how much I am "anticipating" mario kart, that game was fun when i was 12, not 22.
lol this is the worst list ive ever seen lol no killzone no LBP no FFXlll poor guy he realy needs to get out more and learn about the ps3 games that r coming out next year
8days, God of War3, Shadow of colossus2, Heavy Rain, Final Fantasy XIII+Versus, Tekken6, White Knight Chronicles, Little big Planet, Motorstorm 2, Resistance 2, Killzone2, The Getaway2, Gran Turismo 5,
isn`t a real list.
go back to the drawing board pcworld.ca
this list is terrible.. Streetfighter 4 should be on there before Soul caliber.. no GT5 but they put burnout paradise instead?? PCworld needs to stick with PC games
Yeah, didn't they review Mass Effect and give it a 5 or something?
there are alot more wii games then that coming next year.. including a bunch of exclusives...2008 will be the wii's best year yet.
LOL thanks for the laugh dude, you made me giggle for a couple of seconds.
Wii Fit???????????????????? ;-D ;-D ;-D
Best laugh i've had all year!!! ;-D
Its from a canadian site, no wonder the list is wierd
ignorant wanker. Enjoy the second fall of rome retard.
not include KZ2 and some other PS3 exclusive is because they are PS3 exclusives, i mean really, with the smallest install base i think is obvious that they wouldn't have as large a group anticipating it. Just as obvious is the fact that they recognize that MGS4 goes way beyond the install base. They are playing it safe because to be proved right is better than to be proven wrong, and sales is the only way it will get judged ultimately, and so far... PS3 exclusives no matter how good, have not sold that well. I do have most of them if you check my profile.
what u have said, doesn't make any sense to me!!! you sound like an xbot, I checked your profile: u have like 5 PS2 games and like 15 PS3 games. I wonder PS2 have been like for more than 6years, that all u can get for PS2???? u don't see it weird?
Well demo, that doesn't mean he's had it for 6 years. On top of that he may have sold some to get his PS3 or some of those games. It's more common than you might think.
This list is terrible loll
Only Metal Gear and Super smash are ok to be in that list
and metal gear is so overated
Heh, MGS? Overrated? Yeah right, Halo is the MOST overrated (I'm not bagging on Halo, I'm talking how it was so hyped up and I'm using a MUCH better example of an overrated game). The MGS series has always been great from the start. I can't see how it's "so overrated", then why haven't they kept advertising MGS like crazy? Like how M$ advertising games like Halo. They don't need to advertise and promote MGS4 because people already know MGS an incredibly great series.
I disagree with the list entirely and have a good feeling that the 360 will have the best lineup next year and sell more copies than all the ps3 and wii games combined! Keep your MGS4 while I enjoy conviction and don't think for 1 sec that most 360 owners even want your game on our console! The funny thing is the only people saying we want the dang game are Sony fans which is a lie because we don't! We buy 360 because of it's unique gaming experience and don't want any thing geared towards the Sony brand!
Actually I want it and LBP too. Heck the more games the better IMHO. Am I wrong?
My list is better. :)
A list with Maro Kart and Wii Fit but without Litle Big Planet and Ninja Gaiden 2...
I don't think they should put franchise games on their at all or at least have a separate list for them. I doubt there is a single person out there not eagerly awaiting more than 10 games next year. I alone am waiting on 25 titles next year (and these are only the ones with confirmed release dates) no telling how many more will add to that after E3 and beyond.
Wii Fit? Seriously?
is it game at all? =))
anyway, there are just too many great games in 2008, even more then in 2007 were. =)
Good one about WiiFit. Wii Fit is really not a game but a scale. Even GameTrailers put in in category of "non-games" for E3 awards.
ARMY OF TWO
SOUL CALIBER 4
DEVIL MAY CRY 4
GRAND THEFT AUTO 4
GEARS OF WAR 2
Not a great list, the fact that KZ2 and GeoW2 aren't on it makes it ridiculous. Not naming FFXIII, GT5, Fable2 etc cause I'm not sure when they are due out.
RAINBOW SIX:VEGAS2 (360)
NINJA GAIDEN 2
Will be in the top 10 games sold for the year, GTA will be #1.
wiifit???? wtf??? no gt5? no ffxii? alan wake? possibly gears of war 2???? stupid list
This, like any list of most anticipated game (or any other thing like best game ect..) will always be subjective. Everyone has their own opinion about games and such, so it's normal that this guy's list clashes with your own. The real problem is that it isn't news, but whatever. Anyone reading this should know it's nothing more than an opinion, so why all the hate?
who ever buys wii fit is a numb @$$. The list should be like MGS4 FFXIII, GT5, GoW2, Killzone, LBP, sumer smas bro, and whole lot of better games and acutal games
From ziffdavis media aint them? the same tards that publish emg.
microsoft paid monkeys nothing new here.
Everyone seems to be paid by Microsoft in some way or another whenever you don't agree. You're garbage.
Well, since they have Wii Fit and Mario Kart, why don't they add Barbie's Horse Adventure 4 and Anubis 3? these games should be together.
Why is Wii Fit in the top 10? It's not even a real game. Rubbish.
Wii Fit? Come on... I can say a dozen or more anticipated games...
No Silent Hill 4? Star Ocean 4? Gran Turismo 5? New Zelda? Tekken 6? Splinter Cell 5? Those are sequels, already known and well stabilished games, this kind of thing sells.
What about the new franchises that was already on the hype? Alan Wake? Afrika? The Agency? Wardevil? Halo Wars? EndWar?
Not so stabilished sequel like Gears Of Wars 2, Resistance 2, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Ninja Gaiden 2... Those are not so stabilished games, but the first game sold so well that they are instant classic.
What about those games that might come, might not, in 2008? ICO/Shadow Of The Colossus sequel? Final Fantasy XIII and Versus XIII? God Of War 3? If they put Resident Evil there, those are also possible.
Why waste space on Wii Fit?
I hate to break it to you man...but Silent Hill 4: The Room has been out for a couple of years.
I know it was a mistype...but I couldn't help myself.
Yeah, SH5 should be AMAZING!
6. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
7. RFOM 2
8. Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep
9. Gran Turismo 5
10. Bionic Commando
11. Infamous (actually higher on the list...I'm just lazy)
Seriously though...Wii fit?
Also...does anyone TRULY believe SC:Conviction will have ANYTHING against MGS4??? You guys can NOT be serious. I'm considering a petition to get you idiots banned. No gamer in their right mind would think a Splinter Cell game could EVER compete with Hideo Kojima's masterpiece! Splinter Cell is just a game...ohkay? Metal Gear Solid is an experience!
Pssshhh...They forgot the monster called "Fable 2"
SSB and GTA4 should be higher on the list...like # 2 and 3.Oh yeah were the hell is FF13?!
This is my list:
And than some games for the PC. I own a 360 but there are no games that appeal to me at the moment.
Not interested in a WEE or any of the games for WEE!
I'm going to look at this in an unbiased way, unlike almost everyone else on N4G.
Every game on that list is super-anticipated. Most of us on N4G may not be hyped up for WiiFit (including myself), but the FACT (yes, fact - zomg) is that millions of casual gamers are hyped up for it. And this is the "most anticipated" list, not the "best games of '08" list, so it deserves a spot.
Every other game on the list is greatly anticipated as well. But to put it simply, 10 spots isn't enough to cover nearly every game that people are excited about for 2008. It's missing some key games like Fable 2, Gears 2, FFXIII, and LBP. But if you put those in, you'd have to take out other greatly anticipated games. The list probably should have been a top 25, to fit all of the major players in.
Agree'd Casual gamers make up the majority, so it isn't surprising to see the game industry catering to them more.
Woo! Wii Fit FTW! I can't wait to play "Step Up On the White Thing"!
Burnout Paradise is above GTAIV...
...you're kidding, right?
NO DEVIL MAY CRY 4!!!
WHAT THE FRICK???
This is a very 'commerical' list.
I dont really think this list was drawn up by a try gamer as such.
who really is waiting in anticipation to play Burnout Paradise, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and Soul Calibur IV.. They might be good games but i dont think they belong on the list..
I think Killzone 2 should be number one because so many people want to see if it lives up to the hype. And everyone is waiting and Anticipateding this games release.. Who isnt? People without a ps3 are waiting for this game to see what it does.. Dont lie you know you are..
But a lot of people are waiting for metal gear too so its a toughh one to call..
GTA IV should be moved up to number 2 or 3...
And where is final fantasy and little big planet????
And where is gran tourismo 5??? Doesnt the full game come out in 2008.. Isnt this the number one selling franchise?
Gear of war 2 they havent even spoke about a 2008 release date so i highly doubt it will be out in 08.. If im wrong than it should be on this list too...
Meh, not that impressed with the list.
I would say for me of those listed I am definitly looking forward too:
Star Wars: FU
GTA - never played the series before
Soul Calibur - never bothered to finish the first one
Resident Evil - never played the series before.
I will be curious to see how many games the wii actually sells, though I would expect wii fit to be one of the bigger wii sellers as parents buy it in hopes that their kids will play it.
