Halo 5 is confirmed for 2014. Uncharted only has a tentative release date, but they said they were avoiding 'safe' sequels for the list. Hell, the only safe sequel on there is Super Smash Bros, everything else is either a departure from genre and franchise conventions or a new IP.

@charizard1605: huh didn't know that about Halo. But yeah, next year looks like it's going to be epic. There are numerous games on that list I'm excited about

Edit: dammit! When will I stop referring to 2014 as next year haha

Yes sir, it's been confirmed.

Strangely enough, I had no problems switching from 2013 to 2014 internally haha

I like this list.

I'm surprised X made it on there but GT really does love Xenoblade.

X is one of the few Wii U games, alongside Mario Kart, Smash Bros., and Bayonetta, that appeals to western media outlets.

  6. The Order 1866
  7. inFamous: Second Son

#12 Edited by ArisShadows (22615 posts) -

  1. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
  2. Dark Souls II
  3. Super Smash Bros.
  4. X
  5. Infamous: Second Sun

That should be good, I threw in Infamous for whoots.

#13 Posted by -RPGamer- (34283 posts) -

@charizard1605: worst in my opinion.

Dark Souls 2 - I own the first two and I can see the appeal I just appreciate other RPG way more. Also I really don't like the series' animation priority.

Titanfall - no campaign, no purchase. I just don't have the time to be competitive any longer, too many games to play to focus on one that never ends.

Super Smash Brothers - stopped caring back with Melee. My favorite fighter series, but that's still not enough.

The Evil Within - Never gave a damn for survival horror titles.

#14 Edited by WTA2k5 (3997 posts) -

Is X really on track to come out this year?

#15 Edited by finalfantasy94 (26166 posts) -

I only have interest for number 1,6 and 9.

#16 Posted by mario-galaxys (594 posts) -

At least at a time that Western developers are making strides in gaming in the last several years that some Japanese-developed games made the list.

#17 Posted by Heil68 (42679 posts) -

  1. Uncharted(if it comes out this year)
  2. Destiny
  3. Second Son
  4. The Order 1866
  5. Drive Club
  6. Watch Dogs
  7. X
  8. Sunset Overdrive
  9. MLB The Show 14
  10. Halo 5
#18 Posted by bbkkristian (14759 posts) -

Hey, X made the list, I'm shocked! :D the game really needs more attention if we're going to get any info on it.

#19 Edited by AdobeArtist (22747 posts) -

Destiny is only #10?? No mention of Watchdogs?

Gametrailers, you disappoint :|

I haven't had the issues ever before and then all of a sudden 2014 comes along and I still refer to it as next year haha

#21 Posted by Some-Mist (5630 posts) -

The Evil Within on this list makes it the best one I've seen so far. From that list, I'll only be buying The Evil Within, The Witness, Dark Souls 2, Witcher 3, and X.

#22 Posted by turtlethetaffer (16411 posts) -

Dark Souls II, X, Smash Bros and evil Within. all games I'm looking forward to.

#23 Posted by GrenadeLauncher (3210 posts) -

This list must be in reverse order.

#24 Posted by gameofthering (9970 posts) -

The Evil Within is really the only game I'm somewhat interested in this year.

#25 Posted by foxhound_fox (86939 posts) -

Evil Within is coming this year? Excellent.

My list:

  1. Destiny
  2. The Division
  3. Thief
  4. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes
  5. Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze
  6. The Evil Within
  7. Star Citizen
  8. Drakengard 3
  9. Bayonetta 2

There really so little we know about watchdogs right now. Personally I would have expected Mario Kart

#28 Edited by NeoGen85 (4139 posts) -

@foxhound_fox: Can you explain to be what the appeal of Watch Dogs is? I've seen trailers, and interviews. But I still unclear why the game is one of the most anticipated titles for 2014. I'd rather be playing The Division.

#29 Posted by Desmonic (12694 posts) -

No South Park? That list sucks :P

I have absolutely no idea. People are just anticipating it (I think) because it's Ubisoft's next big AAA title. But from what I've seen, it's just a bunch of smoke and mirror gimmicks. Like, we can mess up traffic lights? Neat. What does that do to push gaming forwards?

The Division is playing around with a different type of multiplayer (from what I understand, it's a persistent MMO co-operative open world) that could actually do something to evolve gaming. It is also running on a brand spanking new engine that is visually stunning (I know it's kind of gimmicky, but there is dynamic weather, including snow, that builds up and melts away over time).

Watch Dogs looks like Demon's/Dark Souls set in the near future with hacking as the main gameplay element.

Evil Within looks super mediocre.

I hope the Witcher can live up to the hype, i'm keeping mine in check.

Have you seen gameplay videos of Division? It's likely to be a MP hit at least on consoles.

I see , is from the original RE director/designer/developer.. entirely other company and from a guy that made one of my favorite franchises ever ( up to RE4 which i didnt like ) . .. Thats awesome , now im excited and it might take my second position after that clarification from Destiny. Thanks for pointing that out , for a reason i thought was a crapcom title.

While RE4 stunk on the horror aspect it still was a fun action game in it.So I have faith we will at least get that.

#41 Edited by VendettaRed07 (13998 posts) -
