It stands to reason that if I gave you the movies I am looking forward to this year yesterday, that I would give you the games I am looking forward to this year today! Doesn’t it? I think it does. There are a lot of good games coming out this year, but here are my top five!
What do you get with Crackdown 3? How about a city that you can totally destroy with all your friends! Crackdown has always been about multiplayer chaos, and I hope that and it delivers that and more this spring!
Quantum Break is the only original IP on this list, which is kind of sad, but it also shows how much faith I have in Remedy (the creators of Max Payne) to make a fun and exciting third person shooter.
3: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
When Eidos Montreal took over the Deus Ex franchise with Human Revolution I was surprised with how great it was, so I am very excited for their follow-up Mankind Divided. I was bummed to find out this game had been pushed back to August from February, but luckily I have a ton of games to play still from last year!
After Mass Effect 3’s great but not Mass Effect amazing outing, I am trying not to get too excited for this game, but come on! It is a new Mass Effect game! One of the greatest RPG franchises of all time is coming back! Only my irrational love of Hitman keeps this game from being number one on my list.
IO Interactive as all but apologized for Hitman: Absolution, so they are trying to make things right by having an online, customizable, and always growing game for you to take out targets from the shadows! This sound like the Hitman game I have always wanted, so it has to be my number one game!
That is my list! What games are you looking forward to this year? Or have they all been postponed to 2017 already (Scalebound anyone)?
