2013 Most Anticipated Games

Well, I know: it would probably be far easier to make a list of the games I am not interested in, and, yes, I did not even buy/play all the games on last year's wish list (some of which were just rented)... Also, I plan to buy a PS Vita and a (Japanese?) 3DS a bit later this year, if possible, which would still enlarge my yet too long desirable games' list.

Remind me if I have forgotten something (Activision?, Betheseda?) --yet my experience tells me that this list tends to stretch through the year anyway (with all the Arcade and Indie and Google play stuff to be added later on). And with Sony seeming the most active, it will also be (of course?) yet another pre/sequel year of great past titles, but no matter:

Upcoming (Q1/Q2):

-Dead Space 3 (*pre-ordered)

-Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time

-Aliens: Colonial Marines

-Crysis 3 (*pre-ordered)

-God of War: Ascension

-Gears of War: Judgment

-Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel

-BioShock Infinite

-Metro: Last Light

-Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

-Fuse

-Injustice: Gods Among Us

-Star Trek

-The Last of Us

-Remember Me

-Disney Infinity

Most anticipated during the year:

-Dust 514 (now open beta)

-GTA V

-Yakuza 5 (English edition)

-Phantasy Star Online 2 (English edition)

-Star Wars: The Old Republic - Rise of the Hutt Cartel (*pre-ordered)

-Dragon Age III: Inquisition

-Battlefield 4

-Watch Dogs

Later this year (Q3/Q4):

-Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist

-FF XIII Lightning Returns

-FIFA 14

-Beyond: Two Souls

-Carmageddon: Reincarnation

-Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

I most expect Madden to come out in 2013.

I don't know that you can necessarily expect an English version of Yakuza 5 this year. I'd absolutely love for that to happen, but Sega hasn't been in great shape lately, and so far as I know they've made no mention of any version of that game outside of Japan. I would not be the least bit surprised if they just stopped bringing those games over, and this was the one they stop with.

But I hope I'm wrong. I'd love to play that game.

I'm expecting Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Unless that was the last $22 million they had! OOOooOOoOOoOoooOOoooOOO!

Also, Sega is a ghost now. GHOST SEGA.

I think this list is missing Tomb Raider. The new TR and Bioshock are the two games I'm looking forward to for this year so far.

Posted by Video_Game_King

I think you mean most anticipated, since most expected doesn't make any sense. "Why, yes, I'm very much expecting BioShock Infinite to exist this year. It should very much be a thing."

Posted by VintAge68

@MooseyMcMan: Well, I hope too Relic has been worth buying, and more surprisingly so as the Warhammer series is really quite a Western one.

Posted by VintAge68

@Video_Game_King: Point taken: actually there are quite some games (in the list) one cannot be sure they'll really come out this year (Metro: Last Light after having bought by Koch, Prey 2 having been due already last year, etc.).

Posted by Video_Game_King

While we're on that subject, I'm not even sure if The Last of Us is coming out this year. The wiki says "May", but I just saw GameTrailer's Top 10 Most Anticipated Games of 2013 and found myself asking "Where's the gameplay footage for The Last of Us".

Posted by VintAge68

@MooseyMcMan: Actually I think there wil be an "English" release (as usual: English text, Japanese audio), but even consider to buy the Japanese one instead of waiting until december...

Posted by TheManWithNoPlan

Bioshock Infinite,The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, Metro Last Light, and, Oh yeah, Bioshock Infinite

Posted by VintAge68

@PenguinDust: You are right, I am aware of this, but it is just that I'm less interested in Lara Croft than, say, Kiryu Kazuma or Garret Hawke.

Posted by OfficeGamer

You've....pre-ordered Crysis 3? But..... wh-hy?

Posted by WinterSnowblind

Cyberpunk is scheduled for 2015/16, not later this year.

Posted by VintAge68

@OfficeGamer: Actually I loved the previous releases, Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Crysis 2 (I played twice), and I too got a discount for pre-ordering via Origin.

Posted by Triumvir

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon for the 3DS is scheduled for March and Animal Crossing for the 3DS will be out in North America before the end of Q2 if not Q1. Fire Emblem is out in two weeks on 3DS and that thing looks rad. Then there is the release of Pokemon X and Y if that is your thing.

Not really a huge Nintendo fan, but I noticed a lack of representation there, even though you mentioned you are getting a 3DS (protip: play Super Mario 3D Land).

Essentially this list exactly except for The Last of Us cause I ain't got no PS3. I'm pretty excited for Dead Space 3 and South Park so lets put those on here too. Also can the new consoles count as most anticipated?

Posted by VintAge68

@WinterSnowblind: Sure? I read something like "12-31-2013" --might be wishful thinking, though

Edited by WinterSnowblind

@VintAge68: If you read the hidden message that pops up on the trailer, the developers say they're first working on an "obvious open world follow-up" (the Witcher 3) for 2014 that will be announced in February and after that they'll put more of a focus on Cyberpunk, which they estimate for 2015.

GTA5 PC is all I really want the most this year the not knowing factor sucks I'm sure it will come to PC but probably in the fall god I hope the wait isn't super long.It's going to be a awesome year for gaming really need to get a new PC next year also I'm super interested in the Oculus Rift someone should make a lawnmower man tech demo with it.

Posted by VintAge68

@Triumvir: Thank you! I consider above all playing those Japanese 3DS titles not getting a Western release, if I'll manage to do this.
