2010 was great, I large diversity of games and content were available for everyone. But now it's 2011- and that means another 12 months of anticipation! Here are my ten most wanted games for the next year
First off- this game is crazy. In a nice twist to the shooting genre, it focuses on being ridiculous and awards the player for "killing creatively". With crude, rude humor and and few gallons of blood- Bulletstorm looks promising.
9.) Dead Space 2
The first Dead Space was a surprisingly amazing horror game. It wasn't only a great new IP, but a fresh start to a an excellent new franchise. Relying on atmosphere and an overall feeling of discomfort- it did something most games can't do to me- get me scared. The sequel looks even better, and improves upon the original in every way possible.
8.) LA Noire
It's from Rockstar games. That should be enough. But no, this isn't GTA in the 40's. New, incredible, technology for facial scanning is not only a key to make the game graphically amazing- but used as an integral part of gameplay. You, the player, will have to figure out when someone is lying or telling the truth via their facial expressions. By all means, interesting.
7.) Twisted Metal
My favorite series as a kid. It's been 10 years since a proper sequel. Twisted Metal looks more hectic and awesome than ever! I might finally buy a ps3 for this. Well, this and another certain game...
6.) Mortal Kombat
One of my favorite series is back! But wait, what about MK VS. DC in 2008? It was Ok...but not what I wanted. Mortal Kombat is reinvented and looks better than ever. More blood, more charcaters, a return to 2D ****fighitng, better online functionality and so much more!
5.) Batman: Arkham City
Arkham Asylum was the best comic book game ever. So how can you top that? How about the entire city of Arkham to explore? And Catwoman? And Two Face? And Hugo Strange? There all here- and it's looking like this game will be everything the first one was, just more (and thats not a bad thing). Plus, no Robin in sight- KEEP IT THAT WAY
4.) Uncharted 3
It's the sequel to Uncharted 2: "A million game of the years" Among Thieves. Do I have to explain this?
3.) Mass Effect 3
Another sequel I really shouldn't have to explain. The end of an epic trilogy. Earth is under attack, your previous choices will affect everything for the finale. Theres no doubt this game will be good. The real question is; how good?
2.) Gears Of War 3
To me, the first Gears of War represented what this generation of games would be. Big, brutal, beautiful, and badass. Gears 3 looks to seal the deal on the trilogy (actually, quite a few trilogies ending this year). Hopefully the awesome online won't be hampered by connection issues, and the stroy can wrap up nicely. either way, this game is going to be great.
1.) The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Words could not describe the joy I had when this was offiicially announced. Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion is the reason I bought a 360. It made me love games even more, and specifically gave me an appreciation for what a game could do. While little is known and specifics are not yet given, I know this is going to be the game I will watse the most hours on, and absolutely cherish for years to come.
So there you go. My ten games of 2011. I'm sure there will be even more to be and go crazy over. Discuss, comment rant, I don't care! Happy new year- and happy gaming!
