Most Anticipated Games of 2014
With a massive amount of retail games coming out in 2014 and early 2015, I figured it wouldn't be a bad idea to compile a list of the top games on gamer's radars. Please note that as bias as it is I have left out Nintendo console and handhelds along with PC.
September has a small list of games coming out, on top of this list is one that launches this Tuesday a small title called Destiny; I won't go into much detail about this, as anyone that isn't living under a rock knows a good amount about it. The only thing I would like to touch on is that if you buy Destiny digitally on last-gen consoles, Bungie is offering a free upgrade to next gen and you get to keep both copies. NHL is another title, although ranking low on my list, that will be high on people's lists.
Destiny (PS3, 360, PS4, and X1)
NHL 15 (PS3, 360, PS4, and X1)
FIFA 15 (PS3, 360, PS4, and X1)
At the end of September comes yet another big title: Shadow of Mordor. This title stands out on this launch week for me.
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor (PS3, 360, PS4, and X1)
Persona 4: Arena Ultimax (PS3 and 360)
Forza Horizon 2 (360 AND X1)
Natural Doctrine (PS3, PS4, and VITA)
October has a huge lineup, which would have been bigger had Evolve not been pushed back. In this is includes three games that I have been anticipating for some time now: Evil Within, Lords of the Fallen, and Sunset Overdrive.
Project Spark (X1)
NBA 2K15 (PS3 and 360)
Alien Isolation (PS3, 360, PS4, and X1)
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (360 and PS3)
The Evil Within (PS3, 360, PS4, and X1)
Lords of the Fallen (PS4 and X1)
Sunset Overdrive (X1)
WWE 2K15 (PS3, 360, PS4, and X1)
November holds a couple iconic games that have marched their ways into players hearts and ranking among the best franchises of their time, We have yet another Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (PS3, 360, PS4, and X1)
Assassin's Creed: Unity (X1 and PS4)
Assassin's Creed: Rogue (PS3 and 360)
The Crew (360, PS4, and X1)
Halo: The Master Chief Collection (X1)
Dragon Age: Inquisition (PS3, 360, PS4, and X1)
Far Cry 4 (PS3, 360, PS4, and X1)
Little Big Planet 3 (PS3 and PS4)
December is a little lackluster for releases; however, with the amojnt of overwhelming games launched in the months prior, gamers will have more than enough to get them through the holidays. But just after the new year, there are a couple games that should be mentioned. Evolve was pushed to Q1 of 2015 and the PS4 exclusive Bloodborne has been announced for it's Japanese launch in February, leading us to believe that US launch is shortly after that. Also around the corner is MK: X.
In short this game season is going to be awesome and expensive.
