1. The Witness
Jonathan Blow is slowly converting me to his way of thinking. The more I listen to him talk, the more I'm dissatisfied with most of the games market. I think Braid is one of the most brilliant games ever made, and I can't wait to see what he's done now.
2. South Park: The Stick of Truth
What excites me is that Matt and Trey are the ones who reportedly wanted this made. For South Park to be great, it has to be honest, and so far hat's what I hope this is: an honest, heartfelt send-up of RPGs. As someone who was only introduced to South Park relatively recently, it has become a hugely important part of my cultural experience.
Journey looks beautiful and completely unique. I loved Flower, and this game looks just as interesting.
4. Mass Effect 3
Not the most interesting choice. It looks like this will basically be a big dumb action game at this point. Still, I'm really invested in the world and the characters. I've got my fingers crossed that Bioware doesn't pull a Dragon Age 2 with this one. Also: Tali's face...please?
5. BioShock Infinite
I like the look of this game. I haven't liked a shooter in a long time, but man does this one look good. I can't get enough of Ken Levine interviews. He really seems pumped about this, and so am I!
6. Borderlands 2
I really hope they get it right this time.
7. Half-Life 2: Episode Three
8. Wadjet Eye Games
Whatever they're working on now. Seriously I fucking LOVED Gemini Rue.
9. Dear Esther
I loved the mod, and a full-scale game could be awesome. It LOOKS amazing. The Source Engine still has some life left in it.
10. Lollipop Chainsaw
It just looks stupid and over the top. I'm into it.
