The 30 most anticipated games of 2010

http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-...ml?tag=nl.e404

Quote:
Say what you will about the gaming industry in 2009. Yeah, it was a little rough, with consumers tightening their belts and only a few megahits. However, we did see price drops for all the major consoles, a gazillion new iPhone games, and a smattering of amazing titles, some of which we're still playing.

But forget about the past, it's time to look ahead and search out the most anticipated games of next year. Our list nearly doubles 2009's, so there is a lot to get excited about.

While most of the titles on our list are scheduled for a 2010 release (and yes, several were supposed to come out in 2009), needless to say some release dates are more iffy than others. Check out our slideshow to see if your picks match up with ours.


I have to say the one I'm most looking forward to didn't make the list, AvP

Is there a full list without having to click one at a time? Very annoying.

Re: The 30 most anticipated games of 2010

I'd easily sub out a couple of those for Dead Rising 2 and Epic Mickey.

Re: The 30 most anticipated games of 2010

Only day-1 must buys for me on that list are Bioshock 2, Metroid: Other M and Super Mario Galaxy 2. I'll also get Mass Effect 2, Dante's Inferno, God of War 3, Alan Wake, Heavy Rain and I Am Alive, but reviews and my schedule will dictate whether I get them at release or wait for a price drop. Like Michael Corvin, I think Dead Rising 2 should be on the list. It's another day-1 purchase for me.

Re: The 30 most anticipated games of 2010

I'm bummed SW: Old Republic is a MMORPG... I just don't have the time (or desire) to invest in those types of games. I'd much prefer a RPG like the did on the original Xbox. Oh well. I'm very much looking forward to GoW III and Bioshock 2.

Dead Rising 2 popped in my head as soon as I saw the thread title.

Re: The 30 most anticipated games of 2010

Hmm......
God of War III gets my prediction for GOTY
Modnation Racers also should be amazing
I'm hoping Castlevania will be worth the wait, and would love for a Prince of Persia game on par with PS2's Sands of Time (more puzzles and less mindless fighting)

Half those games are going to be crap.

Re: The 30 most anticipated games of 2010

So I'm guessing that Metal Gear Solid:Rising for the 360 is not coming out next year.

Games not on the list I really want to play on my 360.

Dead Rising 2 ( I hope they improved the save system)
AvP
Divinity 2
Risen
Enslaved
Crackdown 2

I wouldn't be surprised if it gets delayed another year.

Only one I'm interested in is Max Payne 3, and only if the multi-player is good and popular.

Re: The 30 most anticipated games of 2010

Isn't Halo Reach also coming out next year?

I would also add Dead Space 2 to that list since you know it's going to be out by Halloween.

Re: The 30 most anticipated games of 2010

So 2007 was the showdown of Bioshock vs. Super Mario Galaxy for GOTY. Interesting that both will see sequels this year. Both top my most anticipated list:

1. Super Mario Galaxy 2
2. Bioshock 2 (this would be #1 if Ken Levine was still in charge)
3. Halo Reach
4. Crackdown 2
5. Dead Rising 2

6. Epic Mickey
7. Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
8. Metroid: Other M
9. Serious Sam HD
10. Split/Second

Re: The 30 most anticipated games of 2010

Hmm, it's good to know that according to this list I have no games to look forward to on my DS, except Prince of Persia.

I guess I'll go toss it then.

I hope it didn't do too much long term damage to your hipster indie cred.

Stop anticipating this one and buy it all ready. (On Steam anyway)

Ok, 6 days until it's on XBox.

Actually it's been pushed to January, but I'll shut up about it now.
