This year isn't even over yet but there are already plenty of games coming out next year that I'm looking forward to.
the top 5 games I'm anticipating in 2012 are:
1. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning 
2. Grand Knights History
3. Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2
4. Release of the PS Vita
5. The Witcher 2 for Xbox 360
These are the first that come to mind. I'd like to hear what everyone else has to say though. Maybe there's some great games coming out next year that I don't even know about.

Without seeing a list of known games for next year nothing pops into my mind. I guess I will be interested to see where the TOR Dev's take updates for that MMO and how long it will take for EA to destroy the game with micro transactions and over priced DLC on top of the monthly fee.

You know, I like these threads; it's nice seeing what people are looking forward to. Anyway:

  • Bioshock Infinite: Unfortunately, I feel the twists already are predictable, but the setting of the game seems equally as promising as Bioshock 1.
  • Prey 2: I loved the original; I know this isn't that similar but it seems like a cross between the original and something like Far Cry 2 (which I really enjoyed).
  • Far Cry 3: Speaking of Which...; I hope this takes what was great about the original and tweaks some of the issues with FC2.
  • Borderlands 2: More Borderlands! I loved Borderlands a lot. Also, from what I've seen of this it look as good as (if not, better than) the original - also, it seems like it's designed with PC in mind this time :D
  • Quantum Conundrum: More quirky first person puzzling from Kim Swift - Sign me up! =D
  • The Witness: Definitely seems interesting and Braid is, without doubt, one of my favourite games ever.
  • Toki Tori 2: The original was ultra-cute and had some great puzzles.
  • Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle: I'm getting a little tired of the same old formula, but hopefully the 3DS version mixes things up a bit.

Bioshock Infinite 
Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle Mask (I forget which one is the localized name) 
Final Fantasy: Type 0

#16 Posted by theveej (917 posts) -

A lot of good games 2012, but I'm really curious to see what they do with Halo 4 and GTA 5. More in the sense that I think those series need new ideas to make them fresh, at the same time a lot of people buy those games because they are Halo games and GTA games so there is pressure to keep it the same. Kind of the same problem with Call of duty, but I'm hopefull that they will address these games with fresh new ideas, specially halo 4.

Halo 4 is the only one i'm really excited for just because we don't know anything about it.

I totally forgot about this game and FF XIII-2.
It's kind of surprising to see how many great games are still coming out on the PSP. It's too bad it's not doing so well in NA.

I just want to deal with the rest of this years game before thinking about 2012.

  • Final Fantasy XIII-2
  • Devil Survivor 2
  • Final Fantasy Type-0
  • Yakuza: Dead Souls
  • Kid Icarus: Uprising

Also, Persona 4: The Golden and Mayonaka Arena, but those are so obvious even to me that didn't even put them down before I submitted.

#24 Posted by gingertastic_10 (4314 posts) -

Bioshock Infinite and Silent Hill: Downpour. Not really a release, but I hope they announce a new Fallout game in 2012.

#26 Edited by awesomeusername (4544 posts) -

In order:

Bioshock Infinite: Irrational doing their own Bioshock game again can only be amazing.

Assassin's Creed III: I love this franchise and I can't wait to see the ending.

Sly 4: I'm a Sly fanboy and I've been waiting for part 4ever.(See what I did there?)

Dishonored: I love stealth games and having powers and stuff sounds awesome.

Prey 2: Game sounds very intriguing and I love open world games.

Other games would be hea. Hopefully Prey and Dishonored don't follow suit of being bad games like most Bethesda games.

@FancySoapsMan: The PS Vita isn't a game.

#36 Posted by Animasta (14827 posts) -

Devil Survivor 2, Metro: Last Light, Persona 4: Mayonaka Arena, Prey 2 could be cool? Metro especially though, it looks so dope.


#37 Posted by Dalai (7798 posts) -

Bioshock Infinite is pretty much it for now, but if Borderlands 2 and Darksiders II are coming next year, they're on the shortlist.

#38 Posted by awesomeusername (4544 posts) -
@FluxWaveZ: Number 7 was my girlfriend you bastard! You're going to die! Gahhhhh!!!! *Thumps eye*
#39 Posted by tourgen (4568 posts) -

Prey 2 and maybe Syndicate depending on how open-ended the gameplay ends up.

Beyond that I'll be burning most of my time in Skyrim, maybe Saints Row, and Dark Souls for at least the first half of the year.

Mass Effect 3 and Bioshock Infinite are popular choices for 2012. Starhawk is my most anticipated game in 2012 though. I played the crap out of Warhawk and am in need of a multiplayer game to sink my teeth in.
