Poll: Which month's game lineup are you most excited for? (73 votes)

August 34%
September 27%
October 7%
November 25%
December 1%
Neither, 2014 is gonna crap all over 2013 in gaming! 5%

So yeah, in about two days, we'll be entering the blockbuster season for big name video game releases! I'm getting pretty excited and already planning on purchasing these games. I want to know from the Giant Bomb community which month has the game lineup they are most amped for? For a point of reference, I put the big name game releases into group.

Can somebody provide a list of those months' big-hitters? Whatever. I'm voting August because my birthday's at the end of that month.

Um, hard to say, most of the things I'm looking forward to don't have concrete release dates.

Oh, they're all pretty good. Next-gen launch is gonna be pretty good.

But then there's GTA V, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and Batman Arkham Origins in the mean time. I think I might actually jump on maybe two of those. We'll see.

November is certainly the month I'm most interested in watching pan out. But concerning games I'll be buying day 1, September takes it for GTAV.

September because:

  1. Grand Theft Auto V
  2. The Puppeteer
  3. Killzone: Mercenary

Then I guess November because Tearaway & PS4 launch games(Killzone, Driveclub, Knack, Watch_Dogs, AC4). Then October because Beyond: Two Souls & Batman. Then August because Saints Row 4 & Splinter Cell.

The week of August 18th is pretty damn stacked for a week in August. There are potentially four games that I want that come out that week; Saints Row IV, Disney Infinity, Divekick, and maybe XCOM.

For me, it's looking like a tie between August (Splinter Cell: Blacklist) and October (Battlefield 4).

August has Saint's Row 4 and Final Fantasy XIV, so that's my answer.

Killer is Dead is an August release but it comes out on the 27th, so I might as well lump it in with September. Septemgust is the true victor.

@mocbucket62: Add Outlast - it comes out on September 4. I'm really looking forward to that.

October, mostly because the Deadly Premonition pc version comes out then. Beyond Two Souls also looks pretty snazzy.

The only major release I'm buying before the new consoles hit will be GTA5 in September, but November is where things will get really interesting for me with Watch Dogs and Killzone.

Sorta hard to say without console release dates and full launch line-ups. Even disregarding that it seems pretty spread out with 2-3 games every month I look forward to. I'm tempted to say october, but it relies on Batman Origins being great and not a cash-grab sequel.

When do Super Mario 3D World and Windwaker HD come out? That's going to sway my vote quite a bit.
