You don’t know what a great game is unless you have a crappy game to compare it to. We take a look at some games that look like they’ll stun gamers in 2015 as well as a few of their compatriots that might fall victim to over hype and poor design.
He's spot on with every game except the division....I hope.
idk about you but QB gives me more hope then 1888 but we will def see because no one really knows
Bit of an odd list. Totally agree on QB vs The Order. I know where I'd place my bet!
They're Canadian. Nobody takes them seriously anyways.
The Division could end up just like Destiny. Big open world, loads of exploration, MMO like etc. I'm still looking forward to the Division but Im not hyping it. Quantum Break on the "just blow" list seems inaccurate considering the game early previews seem to impress. Even Wii U's Maro maker looks like fun.
The Division will actually be open world unlike Destiny, I hope. Destiny was just a repetitive mess, Destiny also has no reason for exploration
Quantum Break and The division look great from the previews! guy hasn't got a clue! Also Bloodborne should be on there too! Souls series was amazing!
I'd swap Evolve with Bloodborne
You stoned.... They're dead wrong with a lot of those games. I'm really pumped for Arkham Knight but I don't expect it to blow me away aside from Batmobile combat. (Which won't be groundbreaking) The Order reveal had me super pumped but now they've gone back on most things that trailer had hinted at in favor of a pretty looking cover shooter. I'm not smashing on The Order but just disappointed they didn't make it more of a Monster game. Did you read this guys reasons for not being pumped for Quantum Break? "A live action TV show is planned to accompany the game – because that’s been super successful in the past, right? Gameplay is mostly unknown quantity at this time, but I’d be hesitant to preorder this one." Is this guy stoned? Your previous example is Defiance which was a detached experience because the Live action series and Developer didn't have hands on with both projects. The show took off...The game didn't. Sam Lake Wrote/Directed BOTH the series and game. He clearly hasn't done any research on the game and choose to ignore that the game is more than what the ONLY demo had shown. God this site makes me embarrassed to call myself Canadian, most of their posts are just P.O.S.
I seriously have high hopes for The Division and it is looking very nice it should not be on the blow list for sure
How can you be so sure? It wouldn't be the first Ubisoft game to look very nice with people having high hopes for it... only to be very disappointing.
He has Quantum Break as a "Blow". It's a Remedy game. It's going to be amazing. I don't think he's very well informed about it. Mario Maker won't suck. It's not like it's releasing as a full $60 title. It's just a fun little game to play around with.
Switch Quantum Break with the Order and not bad.
People's expectations of the Order's gameplay have been lowered. It won't have to do much to beat those expectations now.
Do you know what it takes to make any serious alterations to gameplay this late in development? I asked a friend of mine a while back who is a dev at Bioware and he said any substantial changes that are not superficial like effects, HUD, etc will almost always break things all throughout a game and would entail tons of reprogramming and would set back a game at least a year. This was not pertaining to The Order, but was a general statement regarding most games. Very few if any substantial changes go into video games in the final 6 months of development. That's when they're fixing bugs, getting all the audio and voice acting dialed the way they want it, and optimizing performance. Can you name a Demo that was substantially different from the retail product that didn't have some sort of last minute long-term delay? I sure can't.
Agreed. And change Evolve for Dying Light.
why exactly change?? what does quantum break do different that the order doesnt?? i mean from what i saw from the gameplay from quantum break is pretty much a straight forward third person shooter like the order. good graphics but they didnt blow my mind like they said before the gameplay reveal. story?? only time will tell. the concept of stopping time that is cool i give it that. people quickly to judge a game they didnt even had hands on as being bad. thats why the hype for many games will destroy them before they even came out.
Quantum break has time-minpulating and "Quantum" powers. And is in a midern setting. That's the difference. The demo showed huge potential for awesome tactical play. With the order it looks like cover-->Shoot repeat.
Not a chance. The order has got a much more interesting theme than quantum.
I'm quite ready to have my mind blown by No Man's Sky.
I predict that Evolve is the next letdown
For some odd reason, I'm getting a Destiny vibe from it. Not bad, but not good either.
Not even possible. There's a reason everyone is enjoying it so much at conferences. It's insanely fun. Turtle Rock has been redefining multi-player for years.
i think Evolve will be that fun game you play with friends. not a great game, a mediocre game in its whole context, but just average over all. like killing floor, absolutely terrible. but playing and trolling your friends makes the game a blast.
Yeah, I don't care much for evolve. It looks ok, but the staying power of this game lacks for me. Hopefully I am wrong.
Quantum Break, The Order and Evolve. I couldn't disagree more about these...
I feel like Quantum Break AND the Order will probably be mediocre.
Star Citizen, uncharted 4, the witcher 3, MGS5, and batman would be those mind blowers to me in 2015.
star citizen is scheduled for 2016, minimum.
You have no idea what you're talking about. They are releasing the 10 chapter Story-driven game at the very beginning of 2015. This is NOT a beta or alpha, both of which were canceled because Roberts wanted to only release the final/polished version. http://starcitizen.wikia.co... Then at regular intervals, they plan on releasing the remaining 40 chapters. The main "persistent universe" will be at the end of 2016. And to those of you asking where "Uncharted 4" is... how on earth can anyone put that game on a list like this when NONE OF YOU have seen any actual gameplay?? The only thing anyone has seen is a pre-rendered cinematic cut-scene running on PS4 hardware. I still would like to know why no gameplay has been shown this close to release. Seems like they're trying to maximize preorders before showing actual gameplay just like we saw them do with the Remastered TLOU.
I think The Division and Quantum Break look great. I'm a little worried about The Order, but I'll probably pick it up just as a showcase of the console's power like Ryse did for the Xbox One.
So . . . Pans Quantum Break break for being a standard third-person shooter with, in his opinion, uninteresting time-mechanics. Gives props to the Order, a game that is a standard third-person shooter and doesn't even feature unique mechanics such as time manipulation. Add onto that 1886's overall lack of positive press when it came to its public previews and, well, I have to call the article out on a bit of bull.
Wah. I'm speaking, not even negatively, but, not positively of your precious 1886. A game that has the majority less than thrilled ever since revealing gameplay. Fact is, Quantum Break has more going for it in terms of mechanics, based on what has been seen, than 1886. Deal with it, fanboys.
And the fact that quantum break goes alongside a tv series which if I'm not mistaken has never been done before. Author speaks of ps4 fanboyism
I think the guy that wrote this article is retarded. Like you mentioned, he says that Quantum Break is a straight forwards third persion shooter; therefore, is not going to be that good. However, he shows a trailer for the Order, and it's basically the same style gameplay.
After seeing last nights new gameplay footage I think its a tad insulting that metal gear doesnt have its own group. Im a massive metal gear fan and nothing prepared me for what I saw last night. That one game is going to knock the entire gaming industry on its ass
Zelda U belong on this list
Another dumb ass article…
Totally agree with the choices. Great article. Bravo! Can't wait for the Order.
I pretty much agree, I'd swap The Order and The Division though. Seems like most people who have played 1886 said it was an okay Gears of War game and that's how the trailers look so far. That's not bad, but that's not what I want. 90% of the time I like Ubisoft's Tom Clancy games and I wouldn't be surprised if it came out better than Destiny, since they have a similar MMOish shooter vibe.
wheres uncharted 4 or bloodborne?
Early impressions of The Order are "rock solid"?
Quantum Break and the Division will be next year's Watchdogs and Destiny
Where the f**k is THE WITCHER 3 ?
Did you even look at the article?
they added it just now, earlier there were 10 games, now there is 11
The Witcher 3 is the first game I put into the article.
ok, exposed, moving on ... xD
Halo 5, Bloodborne, The Division, The Witcher, and (hopefully) SW Battlefront.
I'd switch The Order 1886 with Quantum Break as well. Also, Bloodborne and Halo 5 should replace Evolve & MGS 5. Kojima can shove it. He could care less about his fanbase. The guys a joke.
Yeah kojima dorsnt care about his fanbase, the guy has only been working on this game for 6 years. Your comment is a joke, and a crappy one at that
It's my opinion and I'm sticking with it. Kojima is a joke. When is he going to work on a new IP? He's been doing MGS games for like 20yrs. I would love to see a Snatcher (Policenauts) sequel for the next-gen or a completely original game. He releases a 15min demo and wants to charge people $30 for it. That's a joke.
Batman Arkham, Witcher 3 and Metal Gear 5 are probably the only sure bets on this list! The others are just too fickle at this point. If this year has taught us anything, it's that we should wait to be blown away by some of the titles that over promise.
Really Looking Forward To No Man's Sky
I think Evolve will be a disappointment personally... Lets hope I am wrong!
Quantum break as a dream shatterer please don't talk wet
No Bloodborne??? Must have slipped his mind. MGS5, The Order, Arkham Knight, and No Man's Sky all look amazing though. Evolve...meh. The online-focused shooter is a genre that I hope dies fast.
