Telegraph.co.uk presents the 10 games they're most looking forward to in the coming year.
I got my eyes on: GOW3 - hack & slash GT5 - racing sim Heavy Rain - action/thriller ModNations Racers - racing/platform Agent - open world Resistance 3/Killzone 3 - Shooter White Knight Chronicles - rpg Basically Sony has most genres filled and these are only games we know about. I know what console will continue to give me my moneys worth in 2010. Now ask yourselves, have you made the wright console choice? Edit: DISAGREES?! lol guess i hit some fanboy nerves in here. Edit: @ below True man i forgot about Dead Rising 2. Thanks for the reminder.
You forgot Dead Rising 2 for zombie slaughter fest. I wonder if they'll still have a bench as a weapon that did wonders on zombies.
...and EyePet for the ridiculously adorable pet game that girls just can't get enough of genre. : )
What a blind article? Gran Turismo is clearly better than those 10 games.
I need to agree about GoW3. My list of highly expected games is pretty short 1) GoW Triogy 2) The Last Guardian 3) Metal Gear Solid:PW Additionally I'll buy Heavy Rain (Support innovation/mature storytelling) MAG (256 players is mind blowing) R3 (Coop action and chimera story) All other PS3 exclusives/multiplats would have to wait because I need to catch up with this year multiplats like B:AA, AC2 and some others.
The "Last guardian"....Tops my list. I am in hopes for news,something concrete one way or the other on the next "Oddworld Inhabitants" game,along with "Beyond good & Evil 2".Both games high up on my list and both in "limbo" unfortunatly for me...... News on "Insomniacs" North Carolina studio's game is also something I look forward to hearing about,(hopefully that act/RPG platformer rumored a few Months ago?) And anything "Media Molecule",be it that little gem LBP and or a new IP!
dead nation has my eye. looks like a lot of fun
1) Mod Nation Racers-- Can't believe how great this game is turning out to be. I am very excited for it, looks a LOT of fun and thank GOD they have split screen! 2) Bad Company 2-- Looks to be a great game, very different from Modern Warfare 2's style and looks like a fun yet deep shooter 3) God of War 3-- What must be said? It's Pandora's Box on a Blu Ray disc 4) Halo Reach-- Biggest game since Halo 3 for Bungie, and possibly the biggest RELEASE since Modern Warfare 2. Halo with a new engine and the same great multiplayer= win. 5) Heavy Rain-- Not a game, but more set to be a unique experience, Heavy Rain looks to deliver on the thrill that I've been looking for since Resident Evil 4. And of course, it's set to have the emotional level that I absolutely LOVE in video games 6) The Last Guardian-- If Heavy Rain can deliver an emotional response out of gamers then Last Guardian IS set to be much, much more hard-hitting. From the guys that brought me one of my top 5 games of ALL time (SoTC) Team ICO knows how to give something unique. They are like a mature fantasy fairytale come to life. 7) White Knight Chronicles-- Team ICO brought me one of my top 5 games of all time, and so did Level 5 with Dark Cloud 2. Though I am a little disappointed with how WKC resembles a WRPG, I have faith in these guys. I hope they release Dark Cloud 3 soon. 8) Killzone 3-- set to be much, MUCH better than the already fantastic Killzone 2. I am eager for a deeper multiplayer component, a stronger story, and co-op. I am excited to see how much GG improve over K2. 9) Bioshock 2 probably, though I have yet to play Bioshock 1. 10) Reserved spot :)
what he thinks the gamer audience is anticipating. Not that that's a bad thing, just an observation. Because I know Final Fantasy XIII and Gran Turismo 5 have A LOT more people following them than Bayonetta. Anyways, these are my top 5 anticipated games of 2010. 5.Splinter Cell: Conviction 4.God of War III 3.Mass Effect 2 2.Heavy Rain 1.Final Fantasy XIII There's a lot of other great titles that will hopefully come out this year (like The Last Guardian, Agent), but it doesn't feel right to put them on this list unless I've seen gameplay footage.
that i would remove bioschock 2 and Bad company 2 from my list and add MAG Mass Effect 2
Another epic fail article! lol, I mean where is God of War, Gran Turismo 5? Final Fantasy XIII (in the west)? The list is a bad joke!
Once again, journalists miss the mark. Where is MGS: Peace Walker? Where is Gran Turismo? I mean, just take a look at their Top 3: Bayonetta, Red Dead Redemption, and Mass Effect 2. Really? REALLY?
Where is FFXIII/GT5/GoW3(needs an actual spo)/Modnation Racers? Why is bayonetta so high?
kudos for red dead redemption on the list that game looks legit
Mass Effect 2 @ #1 can't really argue with that.. i'm excited ..it will be Epic
Where's Bad Company 2 D:
No one cares about Bad Company 2. The only people excited for Bad Company 2 are the people who were slamming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 because it got so popular that it was uncool to play it. Therefore, they supported Bad Company 2 in an effort to seem more L33T! Understand?
What Leon? tell me you are joking. I know many people who are getting Battlefield:BC2 because the gameplay is addictive. Not to mention it is shaping up to be one of the best multiplats of 2010. I know i'm certainly looking forward to it more than Halo:Reach.
Yeah, man. BFBC2 is 2010's awesome multiplayer game.
1. Heavy Rain 2. The Last Guardian 3. Alan Wake 4. Twisted Metal 5. Bayonetta 6. God of War III 7. EyePet 8. Batman 2 9. Brink 10. Bioshock 2 EDIT: Oh...thank you for disagreeing with me. That's extremely constructive criticism.
You're excited for Battlefield: Meh Company 2. Why can't I be excited for a game that does something new?
What are you 10? Yay virtual pets. Incredible.
There is nothing wrong with EyePet. Its family fun. I am sure there is an audience for it. One can buy it for their kids, girlfriend, or grandmom. LOL. :)
@Pandamobile: It is Leon's opinion. He can be excited about a HAZE relaunch and it shouldn't matter to you for that matter. EYEPET has its audience. People in UK are loving it. It's for the whole family. Btw, how old are you? If you are old enough to have a wife and kids or perhaps little brothers/sisters or nephews that you know are going to love the game, you wouldn't really have been wondering about PandaMobile's age.
Someone who truly loves games doesn't judge a book by its cover. Get over yourself. God forbid originality exist anymore...
1. Gran Turismo 5 2. Red Dead: Redemption 3. God of War III 4. Dead Space 2 5. Last Guardian 6. Heavy Rain
great list :)
All of the games that PS3 Supporters are listing above this post will be long forgotten. The list doesn't mention the vast majority of games that are being shared in this thread for PS3. Why you ask? THE U.K. DOESN'T CARE ABOUT PLAYSTATION. So let's recap... Shall we? #1 Market (America) - XBOX360 dominates in Software. #2 Market (Japan) - Nintendo Wii dominates in Software. #3 Market (UK) - XBOX360 dominates in Software. PS3 dominates in overpromising and underdelivering. And you have the nerve to be anticipating: God of War III - Repetition. Bayonetta & Dante's Inferno will rate better. Gran Turismo 5 - Forza 3 looks better. http://psinsider.e-mpire.co... Heavy Rain - Looks fantastic. Will sell 500,000 copies. ModNations Racers - Will flop. Sorry. Agent - New IP on PS3? (Plays TAPS) Resistance 3/Killzone 3 - Unannounced, but NO ONE CARES. White Knight Chronicles - Flop confirmed. http://kotaku.com/5113983/s... That is all. Good luck against Microsoft and XBOX360 in 2010. Here comes Project Natal and Halo: Reach. :-)
You realize the PS3 is less than 100,000 consoles away from passing the 360 in Europe, right?
I feel sorry for this troll, really had no life. What a loser :P
yo this is defiantly sony fan site wow there alway talking about other game that people really do not care for but here my top ten is 1.GOW3 2.ALAN WAKE 3.HALO REACH 4.MASS EFFECT2 5.GT5 6.SPLINTER CELL 7.RAGE 8.Bioshock 2 9.BATMAN2 10.Final Fantasy XIII here some other game that i left out Battlefield:BC2/ Heavy Rain/Killzone 3 before u people talk crap i own both 360/ps3....but the mane one i am look forward is GOW3 THEN HALO REACH
to reduce the list down to only ten.
1. Gran Turismo 5 2. Red Dead: Redemption 3. God of War III 4. Dead Space 2 5. modnation raeers 6. star ocean 4 international 7. bf:bc2 8. batman 2 9. bioshock 2 10. Brink 11. alan wake 11. final fantasy 13 12. mass effect 2 13. splinter cell conviction 14. halo reach 15. fable 3 16. crackdown 2 17. resistance 3 18. white knight choronicles 19. dead rising 2 20. bayonetta 21. Heavy rain 22. Rage 23. crysis 2
HAHHAHAHA, ALAN WAKE? You have got to be kidding me. Just because the game has taken 10 years, and is borderline vaporware, doesn't mean it is highly anticipated. Granted, xbots do not have many options when it comes to the 360 pathetic game library, but Alan Wake looks like a game made years ago (dated, since the technology hasn't aged well), has simple boring gameplay mechanics, and it is just outright forgettable.
Mass Effect 2 Halo: Reach Splinter Cell: Conviction Gears of War 3 Crackdown 2 Project Gotham Racing 5 Alan Wake Fable III Patheitc, eh? More like the best of 2010.
I don't like uninformed writers. For the millionth time GOW III was never delayed. GOW always releases in the month of March. Except for GOW Collections of course which is just a HD re-release of GOW I and GOW II.
1. Halo Reach 2. Mass Effect 2 3. Fable 3 4. Splinter Cell Conviction 5. Crackdown 2 6. GOW 3 7. Bioshock 2 8. Bayonetta 9. Brink 10. Super Street Fighter 4
1. GranTurismo 5 - with GT5 Academy out, I think the undeniable difference of the cars' physics with previous iteration will be the no.1 topic besides damage-mode capability. 2. Heavy Rain - do hope the gameplay and the story plots don't disappoint. 3. God of War 3 - don't confuse with Gears of War ( GoW ) which is also an awesome game.
1.M.A.G.(Im a huge Socom fan and cant wait to see what Zipper have planned.And after Socom:Confrontation Zipper got alot to make up for and yes I know Slant Six released that game but still Zipper made tha Socom series) 2.Bad Company 2(beta was fuking sick cant wait until tha full game is released) 3.Heavy Rain(Something about this game is making me want it more and more) 4.God of War 3(Only I need to say is God of War Collection) 5.GT5(could be maybe tha best racer of all-time until GT6 or Forza 4 is released you never know Turn 10 might have learned a lesson) 6.Agent(All I got to say we may finally get a version of GTA:SA on tha PS3) 7.SRV11(Been a fan since tha 1st smackdown game)
So many good games in 2010, my wallet is scared!
Not a very well informed writer. How could he have left GT5 off the list? It will easily outsell all of those games. So I think that should count as be highly anticipated. I know I am most looking forward to GT5.
Wost list ever.
Well if that's your idea of a bad list, I think it's time to hang up your controller.
if a game looks like it will sell very well then that usually means that its the most anticipated. all them ps3 games that no1 younger than 30 has heard of will sell like buckets of snow in the arctic. but i would put GT5 in there.
gran turismo 5 is most Anticipated gameof 2010 in my opinion.
Plenty of games I'm planning on buying next year, but Mass Effect 2 is the only one I absolutely must have.
I'm pretty excited for Metroid: Other M, personally :)
Yeah I think you and me are the only ones :(
Worst list ever. They forgot game X, so it sucks... BLA BLA BLA. People: lists are ALWAYS SUBJECTIVE. It's not because you think something should be on the list, that that's the common thought. The journalist who wrote that, wrote it based on his personal opinion! My list (not in order): 1. Final Fantasy XIII (sorry, this IS in orde since it's my most anticipated game) 2. Mass Effect 2 3. Alpha Protocol 4. Fable III 5. Heavy Rain 6. Splinter Cell : Conviction 7. God Of War 3 8. The Last Guardian 9. Darksiders 10. Super Mario Galaxy 2
i like this list. the only thing that i would do for myself is: swap 2 for 7 9 becomes modnation racers 4 becomes WKC 3 becomes Bad company 2. ^^
however Last Guardian and Heavy Rain have me on the edge of my sear O.O!!!!! COME ONNN!!!
WTH GOWIII was NEVER set to release in 2009. And they basically put all the best games at #10 lol
There are 2 games that I will definately buy day 1, GT5 and Heavy Rain. I know I will probably get another 20 or so in 2010. I just love playing games. I also love Splinter Cell, have played them all so far. Don't have XBOX so will get the new one on PC.
The Telegraph said that Bioshock 2 is steampunk. I'd agree that in some spirit it is but strict steampunk fans would probably say that it isn't because it isn't a Victorian setting. Well, it practically is in a way. It's set in 1960 but the origins of the environment are 1920s/1930s art deco which was itself an offshoot from the Victorian age and some of the features and areas are quite Victorian looking. Also, the machinery in Bioshock isn't powered by steam and steampunk tends to be less dystopian. So some steampunk purists may say that Bioshock is cyberpunk. I'd say it's a little bit steampunk, a little bit cyberpunk and a little bit gothic horror (such as Resident Evil).
games that nobody under 30 would know??????YOU MEAN LIKE KRATOS???DRAKE????THE GUYS FROM FFV13V??THE WHITE NIGHT??COLE FROM UNFAMOUS???THE HILGAST FROM KILLZONE????????SACKBOY FROM LBP???????????????THE BRAVE NIGHT FROM DEMON SOULS?????? THE INFANTRY FROM VC???? COME ON MAN I COULD GO ON..just because halo could be a show on disney channel means nothing my son.
Didn't that game get major accolades at a bunch of game shows? Oh yeah...it's a PC-only game meaning in no way will it contribute to the console wars, so nobody cares!
5 - silly stupid head.. games that nobody under 30 would know??????YOU MEAN LIKE KRATOS???DRAKE????THE GUYS FROM FFV13V??THE WHITE NIGHT??COLE FROM UNFAMOUS???THE HILGAST FROM KILLZONE????????SACKBOY FROM LBP???????????????THE BRAVE NIGHT FROM DEMON SOULS?????? THE INFANTRY FROM VC???? COME ON MAN I COULD GO ON..just because halo could be a show on disney channel means nothing my son.
dont put mass effect as the #1 game of next year. not saying its a bad game, but it's a niche game its a rpg that well was quite boring. there are a lot of people who will play this game but it will top out at 1.5 million if that
The games below will inform you: Heavy Rain, The Last Guardian, Gran Turismo 5 and God of War III, Alan Wake and HALO: Reach. Say what you want, but EVERYBODY would like to know how these games turn out more then any other game because every one of them could be in win/fail scenario. Heavy Rain - Postive/Innovation, Negative/Expected QTE based game God of War III = Positive/Surpasses GOWII, Negative/Just a visual upgrade. Gran Turismo 5 = Positive/Most Definitive, Negative/Less than Forza 3 The Last Guardian = Positive/Most original game, Negative/Fanboy hate Alan Wake = Positive/Delivers gameplay, Negative/Overshadowed by other 360 games Halo: Reach = Positive/Meets expectations on visuals and gameplay, Negative/Does not meet expectations on visuals and gameplay. Every other game will just fall into place to success or failure depending on fanbase or hype. -End statement
My most anticipated game of 2020 Twisted Metal for PS3
my top 5 list 1) Bad Company2 2) Bad Company2 3) Bad Company2 4) Gran Turismo5 5) Mass Effect2 I hope there are some new Demon's Souls in 2010. That game was really very nice surprise for me. My personal GOTY of Year 2009.
The only game on that list thats even confirmed for 2010 is Mass Effect 2. Alan Wake you may see that in 2012. Gears of War 3? Are you joking?! There hasn't even been one word about that game. Fable 3? Nope not even confirmed for development yet. Splinter cell conviction will probably come out finally.
guess this will make people feel good about their mediocre game console never heard of crackdown halo reach will be boring -PS3 has much better anticipated games of 2010 (fact) -360 games might will be hyped up for nothing
1. GOWIII 2. DC Universe Online 3. Max Payne 3 4. Heavy Rain 5. L.A. Noire 6. Rage 7. Modnation Racers 8. Twisted Metal 9. Enslaved 10. Dark Void
