Of all the anticipated titles scheduled for this year, which one is most likely to live up to the hype? Which one will win over gamers and critics alike?
I'm not at all worried about MGS V. I know that game is going to be a masterpiece.
A lot of people said the same thing about MGS4 and I still think Snake Eater is the best in the franchise, particularly because you don't need to play any of the other games to enjoy Snake Eater. MGSV DOES look better than MGS4 simply given the gameplay opportunities that an open world provides. Back to the topic at hand, I don't see Uncharted 4 not living up to the hype. I'm one of the few who thought that UC3 was better than 2...just not THAT much better.
Wait whaaa? You didn't like MGS4? That game was incredible.
I enjoyed MGS4, I just feel that the story was all over the place...particularly for me given that I only played MGS3 /MGS2(MANY years ago on the PS2) and skipped MGS1 given that the controls pissed me off. I can see how MGS4 could be a masterpiece to a person that fully invested themselves in the lore. EDIT: I'd be open to rebuying the entire franchise if it was remastered on the PS4 though.
I prefer MGS3 over MGS4 but I'd still consider MGS4 to be one of the best games of lastgen. Right up there with Warhawk, Heavy Rain and Uncharted 2.
Its an open world metal gear...nothing comes close to it
That's fine, but it doesn't mean that MGS4 wasn't great in its own right I liked Uncharted 2 over 3, but 3 was still a great game
Persona 5 will NOT disappoint. Neither will Zelda U, or MGS 5, Chronicles x or Bloodborne. Atlus, Nintendo, Konami, FromSoftware, etc are the tightest Japanese companies ever. 2015 is the year Japan reignites it's former domination again.
I could see Evolve, The Order and Halo 5 failing to live up to the hype. Of course I want these games to be amazing but I'm a little worried about them. Missed my chance to try out the Halo 5 beta earlier this month so hopefully there is another one later this year.
halo 5 for sure will fail, what a dumb direction they went, total fail, went from fun and teamwork and machinima style custom games to competition gayness
How dare they take the franchise into the competitive scene with a focus on it! Not like now's the time to do that with MOBAs/MMOs having such success with high focus on Competitive action. Halo 5 for sure will fail? Wake up, if they do a little tuning with the beta and give more map diversity outside of "Forgeable maps" they'll have one of the best Halos under their belt. Fun and teamwork? I see a lot more teamwork in Halo 5 Guardians Beta... Clearly you didn't play it because communication and coordination were key to controlling the game. As far as fun, if you tell me Spartan Abilities aren't the coolest and most fun you've had in an FPS... IDK if you'll ever be happy. Case and point... There's currently little hype around Halo after MCCs server issues. So Halo 5 has the potential to be a real sleeper hit(In a sense).
MGS4 was a fucking masterpiece blasphemy here blasphemy
UC4, MGS5, and Witcher 3
yoshis wooly world
MGS5 will definitely live up to the hype. Kojima hasn't disappointed ever. One of the few games I would pay full price for and not even have to watch/read reviews beforehand.
Exactly my thoughts.
Mgs5 and witcher 3. Literally all anyone who is an action adventure fan needs to buy. Nothing will come close to those two, Theyre both too ambitious. And mgs4 was a bad metal gear and is one of the best ps3 360 games ever. Stop the silliness
MGS V, Arkham Knight, The Witcher 3, UC 4, and one that's debatable I'm sure but I have a lot of faith in, Quantum Break. I've never played the Souls games but from what I hear about From's track record, Bloodborne is a pretty safe bet. I stick by the Order 1886 as well. I think ROTR will be great as well. If this year somehow inexplicably disappoints I may just hang up the old controller. Not really, but man this year seems like such a lock to satisfy, if it's a letdown I'll never trust my gamer instincts again.
I really want witcher 3 to live up to the hype, but the hype for that game has reached crazy level I don't think any game could live up to it. If it does though it would have to be a contender for game of the decade. Nintendo are on top form atm so I am confident most of their games including zelda will live up to the hype.
arkham knight for sure
Arkham, The Witcher, Mgs5, Uncharted 4
Since when do these games make their own hype? I couldda sworn that was done by us and the media?
MGSV will exceed expectations.
That title is the article. Seriously. Go ahead and click the link to read the "article." It asks a couple of questions that are all essentially: "Which 2015 Game Will Make Good On Its Own Crazy Hype?" That's it. No wonder everyone here only reads the title befor commenting.
