Personally Transistor, Super Smash Brothers and Child of Light are the only games I can think of that I'll definitely get this year. I have a moderate amount of interest in Arkham Knight, Destiny and the possible Halo 2 Anniversary.

There are a few games that look solid that don't really interest me that are coming but when I go to the upcoming games section on gamefaqs the list is kinda short and really really pathetic for PS4/XONE

Personally, this is looking to be the weakest year since 2009, even weaker.

We had a fair start though with games like Titanfall, Bravely Default, Ground Zeroes and South Park though. But the rest of the year doesn't look as great.

It's looking like it'll be a good year to work on the ol' backlog, agreed. Although I'm sure there will be some unforeseen releases, I'm really looking forward to E3 to see some new franchises.

This. March was pretty great, next month is looking great as well, and that's just the first half of the year.

I'm sure I won't even be able to play all the games I want to play this year because of lack of time/money.

Watch_Dogs, Arkham Knight, Dragon Age, Wolfenstein, Destiny, Alien: Isolation. Certainly enough to keep me entertained, not to mention the games we've already gotten our hands on. We also have E3 in a couple months.

Right now I think you may be right however, I'll wait until E3 before I come to a final conclusion myself

TITLE: "...does 2014 look pretty barren?"

We are just looking at games, okay....It's not my favorite year so far, but here's a list with Xbone and PS4 games Jan-May. I also have a PC, Wii U, PS360, Wii, 3DS, Vita, PSP, and DS to fall back on just in case though.

Uh no, unless you only buy PS4 and XB1 exclusives 2014 is going to be great

And we already have a potential GOTY (Dark Souls 2)

I'll admit on console it's looking pretty bleak. PC is somewhat better.

I have high hopes for 2015.

This, I've been saying for a while this is the "gen of the multiplat" and there's nothing wrong with that.

There are more then enough games to keep me busy this year. I'd agree that in terms of exclusives it looks a little weak however.

Personally I'm glad 2014 isn't jam packed with great games like 2013 was because I'm drowning in my backlog. I'm getting maybe 6-8 games the remainder of the year and will be perfectly content.
