1. Halo 4
2. Max Payne 3
3. Alan Wake
4. Ryse
5. GTA V


But I do have Skyrim, Arkham City, Battlefield 3, Rage and Halo CEA as a backup. I only played Skyrim for 3 hours today and haven't even touched the other games. I actually need a slower year than 2011.

The last of us and GTA V are at the top for me. Followed closely by Max payne 3 and Mass effect 3.
Halo 4 comes in at 5th with Starhawk at 6th.

That's my list, I will most likely buy FIFA 13 and the next COD. No matter how much I try and avoid it, I'll end up buying them. Just like FIFA 12 and MW3.

Edit# You know, the Last Guardian is in the mix aswell. Game looks unbelievable. Alot of money will be spent in 2012 :D

Ok, forgot Rainbow six patriots and Ghost recon future soldier. Too many games :(

Im disappointed they don't have Twisted Metal or Borderlands 2 on their list.

TheLastGuardian4560d ago

Twisted Metal always gets overlooked on these types of lists. I don't see why. Not only is it my most anticipated game of 2012 by far, Twisted Metal is my most anticipated game of all time.

I've been waiting for this game for years and it's almost finally here. I'm a die-hard TM fan and from what I've seen of the new Twisted Metal, I think this might just be my new favorite game of all time.

not in any particular order.

gta 5....hopefully fall 2012
TLG....fall 2012
max payne 3....fall 2012
last of us....fall 2012
jak hd collection....Q1 2012
twisted metal
darkness 2.... may get this on release
darksiders 2....may get it on launch

and hopefully we will know about more games by e3 2012

xbox360 wise i am interested in halo 4, but since its a new studio i will take the wait and see approach, i still believe that halo 4 should be the launch title done on xbox720 on a engine built for xbox720. well it may still end up on xbox720 along with xbox360

but other than that MS has a lot of unknowns

I take that back. Witcher 2 is my most wanted game of 2012 and its looking amazing on xbox360 along with the fact it looked great on the pc

also hopeful for FF 13 versus

will get yakuza dead souls day one

hoping for ratchet and clank hd collection
gta hd collection
kingdom hearts hd collection

starhawk coukld be day one
mass effect 3 shuld be day one

SLY 4 will be day one

i think its great that we know so much yet know so little what both MS and sony will reveal in 2012

thats_just_prime4560d ago

I dont really care about any of those games. I might try bioshock again but it doesnt look as good as the 1st 2 and the 2 wasnt as good as the 1st. Same goes for mass effect.

Only game I really looking forward to so far is Diablo 3

otherZinc4560d ago

Sites are stupid.

This is why trust has fallen.
Silly predictions as those!

Most anticipated is easily games people cant wait to purchase! With That said...

Top 5 Most Anticipated are:
1. COD:Next
2. Halo 4
3. GTA 5
4. Mass Effect 3
5. Bioshock Infinite

That's the true Most Anticipated top 5! If people dont buy it in a rush...There was not much anticipation at all...Right!?

TrendyGamers4560d ago (Edited 4560d ago )

Not a bad list and only one month until Final Fantasy XIII-2, hopefully it lives up to the Famitsu perfect score.

Matrix2k4560d ago


not a bad a list as some of the others but still way too many mainstream titles that look generic
