E3 2010 Most Anticipated Games

List items

  • Just looks flat out AWESOME. I couldn't love the art style more than I do for this game. Highly innovative both graphically AND gameplay-wise because of the visuals. Plus it's KIRBY!

  • This is by far my most anticipated game right now. I simply LOVE the Metroid series and can't wait for this new take on the franchise. You can read my reviews of several Metroid games including 1, 2, Super Metroid, Metroid Prime and Prime Pinball at http://www.videogamesblogger.com/video-game-reviews-list.

  • FINALLY a Zelda game that really is innovating. This hasn't truly happened since Ocarina of Time and I couldn't be happier. I also think the art-style is quite beautiful, even if you don't really notice it on first glance. Excited about this one even though I didn't play Twilight Princess (which I pre-ordered along with the guide at launch, just haven't actually gotten around to playing it yet >_<).

  • !!!! That's what I said when I saw this. I could NOT BELIEVE that they actually did it and that it turned out to be this. I'm still kinda wishing/hoping Retro Studios might be doing a Wii take, but this game looks AWESOME. Fast, fluid, action-packed gameplay that melds shooters/action adventure/platform into one. I was awe-struck! Hooray for Pit! Now where the HELL is EarthBound?!?!

  • Another game that came out of absolutely NO WHERE and freakin' blew my socks off! Granted it's pretty much Donkey Kong as we know and love him. But it just looks so great to be returning to fantastic 2D design. And the new elements along with cool visuals will elevate this to GREAT status as far as I'm concerned. Hopefully there is 2-player Co-Op.

  • I simply LOVE everything I've seen about this game so far. Bringing the cool of Mickey back but doing it in some very unique ways. The creating/erasing feature is really innovative. Hopefully everything will be fleshed out enough and paced well enough to elevate this to great status. Love those side-scrolling levels!

  • I've only recently began reading Harry Potter since last year since the girl I like loaned the books to me, and they're pretty good. Still yet to watch the movies outside of the first. This game is like you ARE Harry Potter.... ON CRACK! So freakin' awesome. Even though playing a title called "Sorcery" where you are literally conjuring spells still twings (is that a word? :P) my Christian side. I still love the concept. And I love how things really had impact when spells were "flung" with the Move. Definitely a Move killer-app IMHO.

  • WHO DOENS'T LOVE CONTRA!?! This is a series that NEEDS to be revived, and this game just might do it. While I didn't see anything that blew me away, all the right pieces are in place and I can't imagine Arc System Works (of Guilty Gear fame) dropping the ball on this one. I love me some Contra so I'm hoping this game will be great.

  • I feel like I shouldn't even be allowed to put this game on my list given that I have ONLY played the first MGS game (still planning on playing the others. I own 2: Substance, still need to track down and play Snake Eater: Subsistance) but HOT DAMN if this game didn't look incredible! The slicing feature is AMAZING and looks truly innovative, something that hasn't been done before. This game should really be higher on my list...

  • In my youth I had a Nintendo-fueled bias and innate hatred toward this PS1 classic (talking: Twisted Metal 2) as my siblings and friends battled each other and praised the game. I played it a few times myself and couldn't get into it (though I loved the music). A decade later, I am flat-out EXCITED at seeing this game. The game looked fast, furious, and interesting. Fun as heck as well, and Sweet Tooth captured my attention AND nostalgia despite being a hater back in the day. Now THAT'S some powerful stuff. Looking forward to this one.

  • I didn't play Killzone or Killzone 2 and I don't currently own a PS3, but HOLY HELL this game looks AWESOME! The cinematic, graphical fidelity is unparalleled. That alone would be enough. But what REALLY sold me on this game was the Jetpack. Best FPS platforming since Metroid Prime? Damn straight. The jetpack TRULY makes the game look incredible and aptly mixes platforming and aerial combat into this already high-impact shooting series. Color me impressed!

  • Multiple Mario Sports games in one game?! HECK YEAH! This game just looks super fun. Hopefully it'll be online since I only have one Wii Remote and most of my friends aren't Wii fans. :( But it's been a while since we saw a Mario sports game (or a proper "Mario Basketball" that wasn't developed by Square and on a handheld :P) so I was grinning like an idiot at this game.

  • Oh Itagaki. While I loved the first Ninja Gaiden, I never got around to playing the successors (though Dragon Sword for DS I did play and beat and it was awesome!) and I think they milked it too much. My bro also wasn't too impressed with NG2. He said it got lamer. Enter: Devil's Third. This game has a very interesting mix of fast-paced action and is literally Ninja Gaiden taken up a notch. Excited to learn more about this one.

  • I didn't play the first Force Unleashed game but holy freakin' crap this game looks INCREDIBLE! It's like they took the awesome concepts of the first game and ACTUALLY delivered on them while making them FREAKIN' BAD-ASS! Not only that but the graphics were extremely impressive. Simply everything about this game oozes cool. I definitely want to check it out (and the first) and I'm not even a Star Wars fan. So that's saying something!

  • I didn't play the first Infamous but I completely dug the new trailer for this game shown at Sony's E3 2010 conference. I really love the in-depth storytelling and style used. This game has caught my attention.

  • Wondering why Gears of War 3 isn't here instead? Honestly, I'm not a big Gears fan just like I'm not a big Halo fan. Maybe it's because I don't play competitive multiplayer games and haven't played a war game EVER (yes that included Call of Duty 4 and Modern Warfare 2). Whatever the case, this game has me interested. It's Gears but MORE INTERESTING IMHO. I love the idea of the Diablos, this living tower that's alive and devouring the environment, and then as you fight (this game is a Gears-clone) you'll be moving and taking cover through MORPHING environments and changing cover. Add some Contra-style bosses and Japanese touch on everything and you got my interest. This game looks awesome.

  • I've never played an MMO but given that I'm a big fan of the Final Fantasy series, I always wanted to play FFXI. I did play it briefly then got charged by Square Enix even though I didn't mean to sign up . . . thus there was always a bitter taste in my mouth. But this new game looks like it'll be a much better product overall. And I may not be able to resist taking the plunge this time.

  • NOTHING about this game has been revealed. But give me Resident Evil with 3D graphics with the developer promising secrets around every corner, and make it a NEW RE game, and you've DEFINITELY got my interest. I'm a huge RE fan so I can't wait to find out more about this title.

  • Another series I never played (sigh), I always wanted to as I am a big fan of horror videogames (Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Fatal Frame .... and Dead Space 1. I haven't played it but I know I'd like it!). This game looks like they've amped up the first one. So likewise, I REALLY want to go play Dead Space now so I can get ready to dive into this!

  • Castlevania with Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima executive producing and a Western developer making it? This game looks really good from what I've seen of it previously, and I'm hoping we get to see more at E3. While the previous 3D Castlevania titles for last gen looked great, this game may be able to truly succeed where those games failed. I'm not the biggest Castlevania fan but even I want to see a really great 3D one. This looks like the one.
