We have a pretty good understanding of what games will be coming out this year. Sure, more will be announced and some will be delayed but we have a general idea. For instance, Uncharted 4 will probably come out in 2015 so I won't be adding that to my list. Also when making your list, if it's a multiplat title, list the system you'll be buying it for. My list:

- Infamous SS

- Deception 4 (PSV)

- Walking Dead Season 2 (PSV)

- Tomb Raider DE (PS4 - after price drop)

- The Order

- Destiny (PS4)

- Watch Dogs (PS4)

No, I didn't count free to play games as you don't buy them.

Good shout, forgot about that. Hopefully this is the revival of decent combat style survival horror. Lot's of hope resting on that being good!

#8 Edited by Pikminmaniac (9060 posts) -

Wii U

-Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze (sequel to one of the most perfect games ever created)

-Bayonetta 2 (I love hack n slash games, but unfortunately I had to play the first Bayonetta on the PS3... That version was so inferior to the 360 one that it was just plain painful... For a game that was intended to be played at 60fps, 26 below just doesn't cut it. Hopefully the sequel runs well on Wii U)

-Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (It's always a fun time to locally play some smash)


-inFAMOUS Second Son (not sure if I'll pick it up in 2014 as I don't feel one game is enough to purchase an entire console, but I love the inFAMOUS games and I will get it eventually)


-Ultra Street Fighter 4 (I've probably put more hours into Super Street Fighter 4 than any other game last gen. I still play it a lot)

#9 Posted by locopatho (20384 posts) -

  • inFamous: Second Son
  • Watch Dogs (PS4)
  • The Order: 1886
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (PS4)
  • Dragon Age 3: Inquisition
  • Bravely Default: Flying Fairy

The Witcher 3
Dragon Age 3

#24 Posted by Pikminmaniac (9060 posts) -

I don't understand the hype behind The Order 1886... As far as I know, it's a cinematic FPS by the developers that brought us some decent handheld renditions of Sony console franchises... They haven't been tested on the console market or with a new IP or in the genre yet and given the lack of info, I find it hard to believe it would make a MUST buy list at this point in time.

It's a third person shooter. I agree though, seems like a steampunk Uncharted clone, even being more cinematic and less action like than Uncharted. Oh and the cinemascope is stupid.

0 hype for that game, but I am hoping the next uncharted is decent and different. These games really need work done on their mechanics before I even think of getting them.

Witcher 3,


Watch Dogs.

#39 Posted by WTA2k5 (3997 posts) -

Dark Souls 2

The Witcher 3

The Witness

The Walking Dead Season 2 (once all the episodes are out, of course)



Barkley 2

Hotline Miami 2

Those I'm pretty certain will be at least good enough to be worth checking out, if not legitimately great.

#40 Posted by Boddicker (2811 posts) -

Right now Dragon Age Inquisition is the only one that even mildly has my attention. We'll see if EA/Bioware screw it up as bad as DA2.

The Witcher 3 looks interesting, but I can't really comment because I've never played any of the earlier games.
