Which games are you really looking forward to playing next year?

Mass Effect 2

January can't come soon enough! Looks like I'm going to have to bed in some new team mates though as I can't see me being able to recreate my dream team of Shepard, Garrus and Wrex.

Red Dead Redemption

This could be my perfect game. I absolutely love Westerns and have been wanting an open world cowboy game for years. If Rockstar get this right it will be my favourite game of all time!

Super Mario Galaxy 2. Easily.

The list of all the potentially great games being released in 2010 is getting ridiculous, though, so I'm trying not to pay too much attention to it. But Bayonetta, Super Street Fighter IV and No More Heroes 2 - off the top of my head - should do me fine for a while. I won't be making many day 1 purchases, though.

Split/Second. Really hoping that Black Rock Studios pull out all the stops with that one.

Joe Danger - Just looks like my cup o' tea

Bioshock 2 - Can't wait to get back to Rapture.

I think this has become my number one rule for games now. Even the top titles drop in price so quickly nowadays that it just seems daft to pay full price for a game unless you just can't wait to play it.

I think I'm going to have to bite my hands off next year to stop myself grabbing stuff on day of release unless it's the really cool stuff I'm hopping up and down for.

Definitely aiming NOT to buy quite so many games next year.

These 2 for me plus BioShock 2.

Aside from Galaxy 2, which Im not MEGA excited for (yet) I think I could almost get through the year with nothing else.

In fact my plan is to not spend anything on games next year. Trade-ins and freebies from work aside.

How long will that new year's resolution last?

I've not yet seen anything pants-wettingly exciting in terms of next year's schedule. But I am interested in seeing how good God of War 3, SMG2 and Bioshock 2 are... (all sequels)

Also interested in Heavy Rain, Half Minute Hero, 3D Dot Heroes (I think it's called) and GT5.
Although I know exactly what GT5's gonna be like.
:)

Edit: Whoops, forgot MGS: Peace Walker and The Last Guardian.

Certainly couldn't whittle it down to just 1 or 2 games...

I'd totally forgotten about GT5 so that is another game to add to my list.

Given the state of Jan / Feb's release schedules I'd say about a week :)

Looking forward to Bioshock, and since playing the demo, Bayonetta. I played SMG through to completion and while it was enjoyable enough, I really have no desire to waggle my wiimote for the sequel.

What else got put back to 2010/Q1?

Final Fantasy XIII. It may well be the greatest game ever.

The Edgeworth game. Excitement building.

Heavy Rain
GT5 (and if that fails that rally game that was announced a while ago)
Testdrive. Was that ever announced? Or just rumours? I would like to see it on PS3.

I'll provisionally say ME2, and hope they fixed what I didn't like about the first game.

God of War 3, Darksiders (maybe), Dante's Inferno, Starcraft 2, Mafia 2, and Bayonetta, possibly Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Essentially looks like I'm going for the same game 4 times plus 3 others. If I can keep to around that many then I'll be happy.

I'm expecting every other game to be a disappointment or to be something I can't spend more than 2-3 hours playing before I get bored/something else shiny distracts me.

Me too Sil, looking forward to both of them, especially RDR. I loved Red Dead Revolver - perhaps I'm the only one - and the progression to open world is natural...if predictable. But an open world western - holy shit, what's not to love?

FIFA, L4D2, SSHD and Borderlands is all I can make myself play atm and all of them because of the multiplayer.

I can't easily make myself play single player games any more.

You know what? I haven't got a CLUE what games I'm looking forward to next year... For some reason I generally only give a shit once games are released. With the odd exception.

After a think:

AvP
Dead Rising 2
Lost Planet 2
Bayonetta (at least I assume that's next year)

Joe Danger is also very cool. Loved that at the Expo.

Ooh, another one that might interest me, as long as they've sorted out the problems the first one had - Two Worlds 2. Want some multi-player and I think Flexible Feline will be up for that too !

Next year I'm looking forward to getting around to playing some of the stuff I've bought recently...

That said:

Red Dead Redemption. Think I mentioned hopes that one day we'd get a GTA wild west, way back somewhere on these hallowed pages. Can not wait.

Lost Planet 2. First one has one of the best multiplayer games I've ever played. Sunk months of my life into it.

Dead Rising 2. Well, it's due, isn't it?

AVP. Looks awesome.

Metro 2033. Bioshock 2. Last Guardian. Heavy Rain. Alan Wake (you never know). Two Worlds II. :)

Also really looking forward to Capcom announcing Monster Hunter 3 on the 360 or PS3. (Hey, I was right about GTA wild west...)

You bet, and mad would be too. I can almost smell the quality of TW2 from here :-)

Dead Space 2 - forgot about that. Good call.

How could I have forgotten The Last Guardian.

5 stars. Don't even need to play it.

I noticed last night that there's another tedious Arkanoid-like game on the PSN store. P'raps I'll just write up an imaginary review for that one too.

"It's shit because it rips off a game no one gives a flying monkey's butt about any more. 1/5 stars after 2 minutes playing time.

APB.

If I was in the beta I'd know if it was really worth my excitement, but I've not been picked so far...
