By the time I write this Code Vein already a proven disappointment while Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a crap, be it with microtransactions or not. I'm afraid we might got more craps after this such as..

1. Death Stranding: No important information released to the public yet and the game itself looks like polished version of Metal Gear Survive. Expect tons of microtransactions.

2. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order: A cheaper version of God of War 3. Looks and plays unimpressive at best.

3. Marvel's Avengers(Square-Enix): A generic beat-em up with gimmicky QTEs. Having Kamala Khan as central character already turned people off.

4. Final Fantasy VII Remake: Eliminating the turn-based battle of the classic for the favor of real-time hack-and-slash one. Episodic content and likely to be milked for DLCs.

I'm sure I read somewhere recently that their will be an option for turn-based combat?

Code Vein was never a good thing, we've had public demos for two years. Showing us how mediocre it is. It's from a developer that rips-off Monster Hunter poorly, and now tried ripping off Dark Souls. What did people really expect?

I agree with a lot of these. They all have a change to be stinkers. Although from what I've listened and read everyone who has played Final Fantasy VII has been very positive with the gameplay. It's one of the games well received features. Episodic however, is what will make or break that game.

Death Stranding is the correct answer.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Game looks stunning and impressive indeed. However, knowing what Square-Enix has done with previous Final Fantasy titles, FF7R might turn out to be shit just like FF15. As mentioned what @lembu90 said:

Episodic content and likely to be milked for DLCs.

Let's not forget it's Square-Enix producing this, not Squaresoft that was the golden era of Final Fantasy. Square-Enix as a name, a brand, a company producing this remake is a curse for the Final Fantasy franchise! Square-Enix screwed up Final Fantasy 13, 14 (at the beginning) and 15. It's possible they're going to do the quadruple and f**k up the remake.

Give us back Squaresoft when they made quality Final Fantasy games.

@speeny: Yes, there is an optional "turn-based mode" which actually just a real-time with pause feature. The game freezes and ask you to order your characters to attack their target and then he or she will attack until run of of their move and ask you to give another order. In other words in just a dumb down version of first Ni No Kuni game. It's cosmetic at best and most people will forget this feature exists few hours into the game as they prefer real-time hack-and-slash combat with direct control.

If you like the combat of FFXV and you'll be right at home in FFVIIIR but if you prefer the turn-based combat of the 1997 classic like myself, you probably don't.

I've heard differently on Jedi: Fallen Order. I heard it plays pretty well.

Avengers looks meh.

Aside from Code Vein, the other 4 games mentioned are developed by teams that have really good track records.

I'm optimistic about Death Stranding, as all Kojima games I have played so far I have greatly enjoyed.

Fallen Order is a Respawn gig, so I'm hoping for the same level of fluidity as the Titanfall games. Not a huge Star Wars fan, but it's looking good.

Avengers I'm not too hot about, but it's Crystal Dynamics, so we'll see.

Aside from the episodic nature of the FF7 remake, everything shown so far makes the game look nice and polished.

If these are the potential disappointment for the next year, it seems like end 2019 / early 2020 will be a great period for gaming in general.
