What I hope to play this year- From last year- Finish the Swapper, play FEZ, The Evil Within, Dragon Age and Far Cry 4 and a few other PS+ games I haven't had time to play yet. 2015. Ollie Ollie 2, Oddworld New ‘N’ Tasty, Apotheon, Dying Light (maybe), Game of Thrones, Life is Strange, Resident Evil Rev 2, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, Bloodborne, Grim Fandango Remastered, Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, Batman: Arkham Knight, Axiom Verge, Bastion, Broken Age: The Complete Adventure, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, Journey(PS4), Magicka 2, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, No Man’s Sky, Persona 5, Salt & Sanctuary, Shovel Knight, SOMA, The Banner Saga, The Tomorrow Children, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, The Witness......These are just games I am hyped for right now that are suppose to be out on the PS4 this year. add to this list a ton of PS+ games, new games announced at E3 this year and games I get hyped for as they get closer to release dates and I am in gamer heaven. Yes, most of these aren't exclusive, but who cares? This is just a small sample of games being released this year that I will never have enough time to play:) Games are great and we are no longer in the 60$ exclusives are all that really matter and that's a good thing

@patrickklepek you should mention that the PS3 games are cross-buy so you also get them on the vita

@mach_go_go_go: I understand why you say you should stop your daughter from liking games but really that isn't the best solution, to me at least. Instead, be a great dad and raise your daughter to make good choices and be a good person. And show her great games that you respect and as she gets older talk to her about games that you don't respect and why. And talk to her about how to talk to people with respect and how to deal with disrespect in a mature way. If you take something beautiful away because of the minority you are only hurting yourself and your daughter and that would be really sad to me, because I love what most games are and what they can become.

"I'm saddened to see the topic that has driven much of my career become so wholly co-opted for hate. Ultimately, that's a side note to the main event, of course. Having people toss all discussion about ethics in games journalism under a bus to hide politicized harassment campaigns is sad for me."

This is very well said, thank you for posting, and I hope these last few months haven't changed GiantBomb's relationship with its fans because I love and respect all that you have done for me over the years. I want to be able to agree and disagree with GiantBomb staff without having a silly label like GG be attached. In the end, Games are becoming a place that can inspire and can tell epic stories like we have never seen before but like all great things it comes at a price, a minority of hatred that sometimes can't be ignored and it's good to see sites like GiantBomb stepping up when those times come. Thanks for posting and don't let the minority change your love for gaming.

I've listened to his podcast and followed his career with GiantBomb for so long that I feel like I've just lost a real friend. He will be missed for his kindness and humor and hours of entertainment he has brought to my life. Condolences to his friends and family. You will truly be missed Ryan Davis.

You just earned a gold star Patrick. That was well said and makes me happy that you, unlike most in the game industry it seems, stated your opinion on the matter of the 'journo drama'. I appreciate your honesty and I believe you are genuine. I feel everyone at GiantBomb is and has always been sincere and honest which is why I come here first for gaming news, but more than that, to see what a bunch of people who I could see myself being friends with, are up to. Thanks for being amazing GiantBomb

@Ministry4390: @RoyCampbell: If you put in a larger HDD and set it to download overnight it's really not a big deal. I feel you on the game cases though.
