This year is just wrapping up.All the big releases have come out,with exception of Far Cry 3.We'll soon have talk of Game of the year and 2012 will seem like a distant dream.So,to reiterate the question,albeit a simple one,"What games are you most excited for next year?"
- Dead Space 3
- Bioshock: Infinite
- Tomb Raider
- The Witness
- Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs
- Crysis 3
- Metro: Last Light
- Remember Me
- The Cave
- Wasteland 2
- Watch Dogs
- South Park: The Stick of Truth
- Toki Tori 2 (PC)
Pretty much agree with most of that list give or take a few games. I'd add Beyond and The Last of Us on there for sure. I imagine something worthwhile will come out for the Wii U in a big way next year as well, if not Nintendo is utterly stupid. Super pumped to see how great that South Park game is though. I'm really just saddened by the fact that it took them so long to finally do a proper South Park game that wasn't just a shameless cash in. The popularity of the South Park brand isn't what it used to be so I hope given the quality it looks like is being put into it, it can sell well enough. Metro Last Light I think will end up being a way bigger deal than most people give it credit for as well.
Metal Gear Rising, DMC and Tomb Raider.
I'm pretty confident that I'll enjoy Rising from what I've seen, and DMC will probably be at least alright, but I don't know yet if I'll end up getting Tomb Raider. It seems interesting, I just have no idea if it will be any good or not.

I think you forgot that they already have Pikmin 3, The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 in the pipeline. With the first to coming in Q1 already.
GTA5 only if it comes to PC
Tomb Raider -But the only thing that worries me is the campaign is only 15 hours long I guess I'll wait for the price to drop anything over 30 bucks for a 15 hour game is asking for to much for me anyway.
DeadSpace 3 - maybe, not going to play co-op I think the game would be better if you didn't play as Issac and you played as the other guy apparently he has hallucinations from trauma playing him only sounds much more interesting as a psychological thriller.
Prey 2 ? wishful thinking.
There is quite a bit of stuff coming out next year that I want to play for sure, but plenty of those I can easily wait for a price drop or just when I get around to it.
Bioshock Infinite and Metro: Last Light are definite day 1's for me. After playing the DMC demo and being really impressed with it that has bumped up there as well. GTA5 and Dead Space 3's are of interest too but I don't know if I'll get those day one since I have no idea how much of my backlog I'll be going through. I don't want to push it back even further with the purchase of more games, so I sort of want to keep it light at first.
Oh fuck that's right! Yeah, I just don't have a 3DS. I'm honestly trying to not think about Awakening because I don't know if I have the willpower to not buy a 3DS just for it. I'm no rich man so I don't want to get a 3DS till there are more games I want to play for sure but dude.......Fire Emblem. Augh, thanks man now I'm going to be racked with indecision.
Honestly, there's not much that really has me excited so far. I'm hoping that this E3 will get me excited, but so far it's felt like it's just another year of more of the same. I have the South Park and Company of Heroes 2 games pre-ordered and while I'm expecting them to be good games I'm not really excited for them. Beyond that nothing has really stuck out. I guess this will be the year a bunch of Kick Starter games I have backed are supposed to come out as well, so I will be interested to see that stuff.
Really, I'm just interested to see what they are going to be doing for next gen and how mind blowing it would be if they didn't announce anything for another year. Even if I don't buy the new platforms for a year or two, it would be nice to see the developers not have to cut back on what they are doing with games when it comes to the PC ports to lower them enough to work on current consoles.
@Kidavenger: Thank you for posting Tearaway. I never knew about that game and it looks nifty. Gonna be keeping an eye on that. I would also like to add the below game as well. I keep forgetting about it because no one ever talks about it. Another amazing looking PS3 exclusive. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
