The fall lineup is usually jam-packed but this year, we have the added fun of not one, but two new console launches.
Therefore, it's important that we all have our priority lists. After all, few of us have the time or money to play absolutely everything we want. We may have to put some anticipated games on the back burner, so we can play the games that most excite us. So, what are yours?
In the past, the new Assassin's Creed would've been at or near the top of my list, but although Black Flag looks great, I'm a little worn out on AC this year. I'm sure I'll get to it eventually, but Watch Dogs supersedes it. I'd say it currently places third, as Quantic Dream's Beyond: Two Souls – which launches next week – is easily atop the list, and Killzone: Shadow Fall is second. The latter is my most anticipated game for the PlayStation 4 so it has to be included, although I would've rather had inFamous: Second Son .
I know Batman: Arkham Origins (and Blackgate for the Vita) should be fantastic, but those have never been for me. Not much of a superhero buff. I'll definitely play Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty: Ghosts but neither pins the excitement needle for me; both are shooters and just 'cuz they'll look prettier and feel more dynamic doesn't change that fact. I like 'em just fine, but I know what I'll get. I'd probably say that Gran Turismo 6 is in the top five and if I had more time, it'd rank higher…it's just so damn huge and I may have to wait. Speaking of huge, I know it'll take me a while to do everything I want to do in GTAV…
Yeah, it'll be busy.
