Can't wait to see the next year, especially since i will (i hope) be a college student, and that means much time for games;) killer_onion


haha...dont count on it...i go to college for animation and game design and i dont even have a lot of time to play games.  it's rediculous, i know...this just goes to show how cruel the world actually is.
unless you're not planning on passing classes in order to play games (like me...im a hardcore gamer) you'll be busy beyond all belief.  unfortunately you won't be busy playing games...

sincerely,
a third year freshman

Oh nicy, i really hope you will get better at typing, it hurts everytime you spell game titles together and everytime you put a(comment)together, you hurt my feelings by being so bad at typing i even registered an account for your sake, kinda. Anyways it's nice that you're atleast trying to list games, but please do it more properly, i see alot of game names wrong.

"a lot" is two words...just sayin.  i hate nit picking...

Nice list. It got me hyped for the next year of PC gaming. The only thing that seems to mess with that list in my eyes is Halo2. It may be a big deal in the console world but compared to the other FPS games on PC it's just average, especially when compared to CRYSIS or the current F.E.A.R. game.
With all those games coming I really need to uipdate my hardware, the Geforce 4MX chipset integrated into my nForce2 motherboard probably won't be able to play most of those games :(

So why am I still playing Counter Strike: Source? heh. Seems like a lot of these titles look good in the future, but when they come out, they aren't so special. Can't wait for Sid Meier's Railroad game later this year.

"pc games almost look as good as a ps3". Almost? sorry to give you a wake up call buddy but PC will be 2 - 4 times more powerful than the Ps3 before it has even been released onto the shelves...I bet you 1 million bucks! or have you not seen crysis?

btw the 7950 is a waiste of money because now that computex is having Nvidia and Ati show off their next gen GPUs and they will cost less. Dual SLI is good with a game that supports dual graphics and dual cpus, but quad sli is impractical becuase it would be easier to just make 2 cores on one PCB.

Please dont take offence to that, my intent was not to flame, I just dont like people when they make the ps3 out to be a "god" among gaming platforms.

This list is why I will never stop being a pc gamer plus the mods that make games last for years. How come GTR 2 is not on that list it's only the best racing sim ever. I play consoles also but if I could only have one platform my pc would win hands down. Alot of the console games come to pc and look better and have mods but when pc games go to console the features and/or graphics take a hit.

Also pc gaming is not as pricey any more and my 7800 gtx sli setup is still going strong from 2005 and will still run into 2007. I will likely add a physics card this year for some added punch and grab nvidia's dx10 card end of 2007 if games need it.

okay, I didn't read the entire over-18 page thread, but the list on page one seems to be missing UT2007 under the multiplatform section.  If this has been mentioned between the first page and this post, sorry.  But it seemed important enough to say again. :)

I don't understand why some consoleers like to believe PC gaming is dead.:roll:
Is it me, or it seems the PC to be getting a better RPG line-up next year than the consoles?.

One thing consoles can never do well is RTS games which in my opionon are the best. UT07 will be my favorite game this year just becuase its always been a good series and the gameplay looks awsome. next your supreme commander will rule along with C&C 3

Another wonderful roundup like last year's. Thanks so much. That's a lot of work doing that and I know many including me enjoy it.

I didn't see Vanguard for MMORPGs but perhaps the date just got moved into 2007?

As far as I can tell, EverQuest will be my biggest reason to love PC gaming yet again in 2007 but maybe Vanguard will change that. Maybe even WoW will not that its new but I never tried it.

Actually while Video games as a whole and console titles in particular are in an overall slump for this calendar year, the PC gaming picture has been much brighter with improved sales unlike consoles overall. Obviously, the 360 is the console exception but the weak starting lineup and the lack of the other two major players led to this being not such a hot year for video gaming and PC gaming sales were the only ones that were up according to an article I saw on Slashdot recently.

halo 2, vista, unreal tournament 2007, alan wake, crysis, and stalker are all going to be the biggest reasons for any person to be a PC gamer in 2007.

Man, now I HAVE to get a job. I hate you Adrian, and all you stand for. You just showed me the next two years of my life. If I can get a decent PC cheap, cuz I definately have to upgrade. Will wait for vista and DX10 though.

My pc now:
Athlon 64 3200+
1 gig ram
6600 GT
150 gig HDD

So, yeah... I need an upgrade bad. If it isn't playing on med-high or high settings, you aren't getting the intended experience IMO.
