As usual, there are plenty of titles on tap for the fall.

But which holiday game will grab the brunt of your attention through the end of the year? Is it the already released – and wicked mega-massive – Grand Theft Auto V ? I actually think that one could be mine, unless Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag really grabs me.

Then again, if I could somehow manage to finish what I want to finish, I could end up dedicating a fair amount of time to Gran Turismo 6 in December. That's a big "if," though. And I suppose I'll spend some time with the new PlayStation 4 titles, although I doubt Killzone: Shadow Fall , Knack and Contrast will dominate my play periods. And I'm not really into online multiplayer, so Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 are out. I mean, I'll play the campaigns for both but that's about it, and that won't amount to more than 10-12 hours (BF4's single-player adventure was only about four and a half hours).

What about you? Is there a more obscure title that you intend to spend most of your time playing? Are you a big sports fan, and you've got your schedule filled with Madden NFL 25 , NBA 2K14 and FIFA 14 ? Or maybe you've got so much catching up to do that you'll spend the fall doing exactly that: Catching up. You'll get to the new releases later, huh?

I was really into Watchdog for PS4 and Driveclub was my backup game. Im seriously thinking of cancelling my preorder and hold onto my money.

I will be starting with Knack and finishing that before moving on the AC4: Black Flag and if all if all of that goes quickly, maybe Warframes.

Right now I'd have to say AC IV. I'm really getting into this whole pirate thing! And it looks to be a really BIG game.

I'm kind of playing the PS3 version to get my feet wet for the PS4 version. Have you seen video of the ocean and island scenes from the PS4 version? Damn…….

None on the list. Things feel like they are winding down as focus on next gen. Although I still need to purchase Bioshock Infinite and the Undead of Red Dead Redemption. Forgot I had bought it.

Keep playing!

It was going to be GT6. But GT6 is a bit steep for my Christmas budget. So I'll probably just keep enjoying this pile of cheap games I'm way, way behind on. Or I'll just keep playng DOA5 U and other fighting games. Yes, when I do that I'll never catch up on nothing.

thats easy, ryse, dead rising 3 and forza 5.
which one ill play the most probably DR3, i mean come on who does not love slicing up zombies with a lightsabre!?
i played hundreds of games at the EB expo, but only ONE put a gigantic smile on my face and made me constantly laugh sadistically!

playing through wind waker HD though has just made me want to replay skyward sword again, dunno why but im really just not enjoying WW half as much as i did SS.
really wish ninty would do a HD remake of that next, i mean only if that does not take away from the dev team doing the wiiu game.

Why so many downvote , is he supposed to lie about what he will play just to make you happy ?

I don't think I can ever recall an autumn/holiday season with *fewer* interesting releases than this year.

If I had GTA5 I'd play that one for sure (and really would not need any other game), but now I haven't got a single game on my radar until Infamous next year.

Luckily I've bought a ton of games on sale on Steam this past year, so I got plenty to dive into. But of new releases? Nothing.

PS3:
KH1.5, Tales of Xillia, finish up Persona 4 Arena.

Vita:
Ys: Memories of Celceta, Tearaway, Killzone Mercenary platinum Persona 4.

So I can't answer your question Ben. But I think I'm going to die this holiday. Though for a new release I would have to go with Memories of Celceta.

Well I just bought 'Kingdom Hearts 1.5 reMIX HD' So I am looking forward to plowing through that after Zelda Wind Waker, having just completed GTA5 & Beyond: Two Souls, I doubt I will be buying any new games this fall and the next game I will be buying will by Final Fantasy XIII: Lighting Returns… to finish it for good.

Killzone: Shadowfall and WAR THUNDER are what I expect will take up most of my playtime, with honorable mentions from Contrast, Resogun, BF4 and a few others. Got a bunch of PS3 PS+ games in my backlog that I'm keen to get onto as well, in between the PS4 goodness :).

Hopefully GTAV. Hammer through Beyond this weekend. Then Bioshock Infinite; I might be getting WWE 2K14 and The Guided Fate Paradox for review purposes… not entirely sure, yet. Still not sure if I'll be getting GT6 either. I do want it, but I know that I won't play it as much as I'd like to and I need to save more money henceforth…

I have never played any AC games but that pirate one looks like a good place to start with PS4

I guess KZ:SF It's going to feel weird playing last gen game with next gen games at my disposal, but KZ is only one game. I might have to go way back. I still have my Zelda quest to complete. From the first the NES title up to Ocarina of Time. That should be the right ammount of contrast.

Knack is the only game I'm really interested in. KZ I will give a whirl but I'm not paying for PS+ so I wont get the full experience sadly. Otherwise the rest of this year is meh for me. I'm looking forward to Dark Souls 2 early next year.

Not really interested in much. Haven't gotten Rayman yet, so I'd say that. But AC IV, BF 4, COD Ghosts, Watch Dogs, none of those games are doing much for me.

Not getting a PS4 yet so there's that.

Wasn't too impressed by the Beyond demo, so going to wait for a price drop. Heard Batman was more of the same from this site and others, so I'll wait for a price drop on that as well.

MGS5 has no release date.

Hoping the new R&C will be good, may give that a go.

I'm also burnt out from GTA after beating IV this summer. So I need a rest before I play V.

My only must play is the new Rayman after the perfection that was Rayman Origins.

I'll be getting deep into GT6 and maybe write up a user review on it. If yeah its going to have to be at least a month post release because game is expected to have a lot of updates.

It'll be GTA V for me. BUT, I'd love nothing more than to stumble on to Knack or another game (assuming I take the ps4 plunge in 2013) that I wasn't planning on really liking, and then that game takes over my gaming hours. That would make me very happy.

(That and I'll probably be doing a lot of press for my new movie.)

Stay Classy PSX…
