I have a feeling that decent number of the next-gen launch titles you've listed will probably end up being underwhelming. Ryse, Knack, and Killzone in particular seem a bit shaky.

I'm a bit hesitant about some of the November sequels, too. Will Watch_Dogs and AC4 suffer too much from Ubisoft open world fatigue or will they deliver enough new and satisfying gameplay to stick out? Some of the stuff I've seen of Arkham Origins looks a bit better than anticipated, but it's a different developer so there's still a lot of unknown there.

I don't really see Pikmin or GT6 being in the conversation much either. I'm sure that fans of those franchises will be talking about them, but I don't anticipate widespread discussion.

As for some games you might consider adding:

  • Gone Home
  • Fire Emblem: Awakening
  • Ridiculous Fishing (someone always has to throw an iOS game in the mix)
  • Call of Juarez: Gunslinger - Seriously underrated. Had the misfortune of being overshadowed by another $15 FPS released at about the same time (Far Cry Blood Dragon).

I'm kind of hoping Ubisoft puts a lot of effort into AC4, I think it's do or die for that series, especially if any of their other new franchises find success over the next year.
