There are a ton of awesome games coming out in 2010, but which ones are the Giant Bomb community most looking forward to?
 
For me, the most exciting game of next year is Mass Effect 2. I loved the first one, and played through it twice. I even spent 2 hours reading through the Mass Effect wiki site.
 
Final Fantasy XIII is second, only because Square has disappointed me a lot in the last couple years (Final Fantasy X-2, Final Fantasy XII, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days)

Mass Effect 2, Final Fantasy XIII, God of War 3 oh and Fable 3 if it actually does get released. Seems a bit soon for that one though.

Imma have to say God of War 3 and the ole Final Fantasy. Heavy Rain is on my radar as well, along with Assasins Creed 2. Maybe even Modnation Racers.

I can't think of much that's coming out in 2010. Right now, Splinter Cell: Conviction, God of War 3, and Bioshock 2 are all heavy candidates.  
 
@tacoMOOSE: Assassin's Creed 2 comes out this month, chief.

Red Dead Redemption and Final Fantasy XIII for me. Fallout: New Vegas is on my radar too, albeit to a lesser extent.

I don't even know what games are coming out next year but now that I've look at this, Mass Effect 2 sounds great. I have to get it for PC since I got the first one on PC as well. No PS3 release it seems.

Starcraft 2 is coming out in 2010, which means the earliest Diablo 3 will come out would be 2011. I guess you can just play Torchlight till then? 
 
For me here's the list in order of importance.
 
1. Final Fantasy XIII
2. God of War 3
3. Heavy Rain 
4. The Old Republic (There's gotta be at least a beta at that point.)
5. Modnation Racers
6. Fallout: New Vegas (At least until I see some footage.)

Final Fantasy XIII (and it will probably be the only game i will buy next year)
and Bioshock 2

Old Republic might enter beta late next year.  There's literally no hope for an actual release next year, unforunately.
Diablo III may as well be added to that pile as well.  I'd love it, but expecting it in 2010 is just going to lead to disappointment.
 
Personally, I'm waiting for Halo Reach, Mass Effect 2 and Crystal Bearers (which in my opinion looks far better than XIII)

I think that 2010 is going to be as heavy as 2009. Maybe more. That said, if you told me you can only choose for one game to be released in 2010 and every other game will be put off until at least 2011, I would probably choose Heavy Rain. It just looks so different and compelling. Everything else is just a bunch of "Big Franchise #2!" while Heavy Rain is something I can sink my teeth in with a whole new world of possibilities instead of just "so what did they change since the first game?".

I'm embarrassed to admit this, but I have an open office spreadsheet that tracks every game I have even remote interest in, the date it's currently slated for release, my interest level in it, whether or not I've already pre-ordered it, what systems it's available for, what system I want it for...

but theres a ton of stuff...worryingly (money wise) most in the first 3 months of 2010. ME2, GOW3, Bayonetta, Darksiders, Heavy Rain, Splinter Cell, Bioshock 2, and more. should be a great year for gaming

Bioshock 2.
I was kind of losing interest in the game until I read a great preview for it. Even if the story isnt as great as the first it looks like they successfully captured the atmosphere.

I will admit it's a little off but at the same time that's dedication for you. Not a bad thing you know?

I wouldn't say "hate" but more like, "not as enthusiastic" as we were with the first one. At least, that's my stance towards Bioshock 2.

You can add me to the Mass Effect 2 crowd. The only other game I can think of right now is Splinter Cell: Conviction.

I'm not entirely convinced it is a 2010 release, but my first choice is Star Wars: The Old Republic.  KOTOR has been my favorite game for years now, and the chance to revisit that universe on a much grander scale has me as giddy as a schoolgirl.  I can see myself become an "ALT-aholic" there with ease. 
 
For something more solidly set for next year, my choice is Mass Effect 2.  I really enjoyed the first game, despite its short comings, and am eager to see what improvements they made in this latest iteration.   I also want to know how the characters will flow from ME1 to ME2.
 
After that, again I am not sure, but I hope that Crackdown 2 gets a 2010 release.  Crackdown was my personal GOTY for 2007 and I really want to get back to leaping over buildings and blowing the crap outta stuff just to see the pretty colors.
 
The rest are the usual suspects of Final Fantasy XIII, Bayonetta, Splinter Cell: Conviction and (please) Dragon Quest IX.  I'm curious about M.A.G., Dark Void, White Knight Chronicles, Bioshock 2, the Last Guardian, A.P.B. and God of War III, too.    
 
As it stands today, I am really not too motivated by Heavy Rain or Alan Wake.  Also, I hope I do not get caught up in the hype of WoW: Cataclysm and reopen my old account.
