1. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
I was skeptical before I saw the trailer, but the game really blew me away. Looks like a big departure from the Metal Gear formula, but I think it works. I can't wait to see more.
2. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
At first I was not very impressed by this game, but the more I watch the trailer, the more I like it. So far it's not the overhaul that I think Zelda really needs, but it still looks solid, and the motion control actually looks fun, which is an odd feeling for me.
3. Rayman Origins
I'm surprised at how excited I am for this game. I was hoping it would be more like Rayman 2 in terms of gameplay, but the beautiful hand drawn art makes me forget about all of that.
4. Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds
Do your job! This game will be good, and that's all there is to it. I could ask for a million things that I want to be in the game, but in the end, it doesn't even matter. It will be awesome.
5. Donkey Kong Country Returns
Not quite Donkey Kong Prime like I wanted, but it looks like an honest to god Rare game, and in a post-Rare world, I'm in desperate need of just that.
6. Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Back in the days of Gamecube, I bought Animal Crossing without even knowing what it was. All I knew was that it was a good game. So as I played it for the first time I was blown away at how fun it was to relax "virtually."
Animal Crossing DS was one of my most anticipated games back when the game was coming out, and I put a huge number of hours into it. Animal Crossing City Folk came out and left me extremely disappointed with all the missed potential and lack of growth in the series.
I don't want much to change, really, I just want more of everything. Bigger towns, way more dialogue, way more furniture, and just more stuff to do in general. I hope Nintendo learned a lesson from the lackluster reception of City Folk, and if they did, the lightning could strike again for me.
7. Kirby's Epic Yarn
Console Kirby is just like handheld Kirby. I guess there's nothing wrong with that, but this wasn't exactly what I thought a Kirby Wii game would play like. The art is extremely clever though, and I can appreciate it for that alone.
8. LittleBigPlanet 2
The game that lasts forever is getting a sequel and has more to do than ever.
9. Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D
MGS3 just might be my favorite game of all time. I'm super excited for this, but also terrified that it will be ruined. Only time will tell.
This is the first game that feels like it was made from the ground up for motion controls. It's not Zelda with motion added in, it's not tennis with motion added in, it's a creative and new game that utilizes the motion controller perfectly. It's still early, and who knows if/when I'll buy all the stuff for PlayStation Move, but if/when I do, this game will be among the first I but.
