Top 10 Most Anticipated Games

10. Brink - The team based shooter by Splash Damage and Bethesda is coming out in a week, and really looks to impress. The deep character customization, and RPG like elements paired with the SMART movement system should make for a fun and innovative shooter.

9. L.A. Noire - Rockstar's next game looks like nothing the game industry has ever seen before. It's an extremely non-linear game where you play as a detective, and you investigate suspects and make your own conclusions on cases based on these interviews. You have to read facial ques and listen carefully to the speech of the suspects you are investigating, to draw conclusions as to whether they are lying or telling the truth. Pair this with third person gunplay, and hand to hand combat mechanics, and you have yourself a very promising game.

8. Max Payne 3 - Not much is known about this game, but if it's anything like the last two, It will be great.

7.  Battlefield 3 - Battlefield is a tried and true shooter franchise, and the next installment looks great. From what has been released about the game, the visuals are stunning and the Frostbite engine is looking better than ever. The main draw of Battlefield is the multiplayer. We haven't seen too much on the multiplayer yet, but you can bet it will be good, along with the rest of the game.

6. Star Wars: The Old Republic - Now I'm usually not one for MMO's, but BioWare's Latest looks to be something special. With multiple planets to explore, and vehicular space combat, as well as all the tried and true MMO mechanics we have come to know and love, The Old Republic looks to be great.

 5. Metal Gear Solid: Rising - A game no one knows much about, other than it's a Metal Gear Solid with Raiden as the main character. Given those attributes alone, the game is bound to be awesome. Being the huge metal gear solid fan that I am, this is a no brainer.

4. Doom 4 - We have seen next to nothing on this game, but iD software is one of the best game developers on the planet, and have been taking their sweet time with the follow up to Doom 3, so I don't doubt the greatness of this game for a second.

3. Batman Arkham City - 2009's smash hit Arkham Asylum was widely regarded as the best super hero game of all time, and rightly so. The second one looks to do much of the same, but in a much larger environment. And you can't go wrong with that formula.

2. Rage - Another game from iD softaware making the list, and it shouldn't surprise you. It looks like a mix of a little bit of Fallout, a little bit of borderlands, and a lot of content that make it uniquely its own. It's a Post Apocalyptic FPS RPG game, that alows for vehicular travel across the world. I have high hopes for this game, and it looks to meet them.

1. Uncharted 3 - Uncharted 2 is in my opinion, the best game of this console generation, and one of the best of all time. Uncharted 3 looks to improve upon its predecessor in all categories, and looks like it will. The graphics look even better then the second, and the action packed story looks to be as epic as ever. Uncharted 3 is the number 1 game on this list for a reason, it's going to be great.


  1. Now, where's Duke Nukem!?

  2. I'm excited for all of these as well. Should be fun stuff.
