Here’s my pick of video games I’m most looking forward to playing this year. I still have a backlog of games to play, counting back to 2008, but these are the sorts of games that would jump the queue.
5. Gears of War 3
I’m kind of just expecting more of the same, but it’s always been pretty solid quality so far, I’ll gladly take a bit more.
4. Killzone 3
One of my favourite first person shooters, I never played the first, but I absolutely loved the second – looking forward to seeing what Guerilla Games does with this.
3. Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception
The Uncharted series has been some of the best games of this generation of consoles and I’m sure this third game in the series is going to continue that proud tradition. Can’t wait to step into Nathan Drakes shoes and get stuck into some treasure hunting adventure.
2. Dead Space 2
The first game was one of the most atmospheric video game experiences I’ve ever had. To have one of my favourite games come from a genre I generally dislike shows me just how awesome the original was. I’m really looking forward to some more strategic dismemberment.
1. Mass Effect 3
Assuming it actually comes out this year as promised and doesn’t get delayed, I’ve only just finished playing the second game which came out just last year, for a sequel to be coming out so soon is fantastic. The second one was a great improvement of an already awesome game, my expectations are high for the third.
