In a couple weeks our two new consoles will release, and with some of the most innovative titles to grace any console.  I wanted to take the time and highlight some games I'm looking forward to.  A few of these will launch with the next-gen hardware, while others I'm just excited to play whenever they come out.  I chose these screenshots to encapsulate the genre, and the outstanding charm and artistic style of each game. Enjoy!
