Tell Us Dammit

Dammit, we want you to tell us stuff! Stuff like what's got you excited for 2010?

This isn’t some marketing survey or whatever. It’s an emotional investment in you. Yes, we’re interesting in knowing you, Kotaku reader person. You probably know enough about us — more than you even want to, we’re sure. But, hey, we’d like to know about you, too.

Anyway, here’s today’s question…

Which one game - and only one - are you most looking forward to this year?

We don't yet know if it's definitely a 2010 release, but I think it's likely enough that I'll say it... The Last Guardian is the upcoming game I most want to play. Team Ico's pedigree is enough, having been responsible for two of the last console generation's finest games: Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. But it's also because they do things differently. Their games look like nothing else and they play like nothing else. Fingers crossed we're blessed with another strange, haunting and beautiful Team Ico game this year.


    Force Unleashed 2, Bioshock 2. Can't think of anything else that's on my anticipated list as yet.

    Hmm, well seeing as Diablo 3 has no date attached to it, I’ll say Mass effect 2, I loved the first one and the second one just looks to better than in every way, the graphics and game play tweaks look awesome plus I can’t help but foam at the mouth over Tricia Helfer in the game, I’m a huge Battlestar Galactica nerd. But EA’s take on MMA and Red Dead Redemption are also high on the list.

    I'm getting married in April. I'm looking forward to that!

      Woops, game wise I am looking forward to Red Dead Redemption. Curious to see what Heavy Rain is going to be like and also a bit of Battlefield Bad Company 2. After playing the demo of MAG, I'm not too excited by that anymore.

    bad company 2 and skate 3 are all i care about this year.

    One game, damn, there's too many good games due out this year. If I had to pick only one game though, it would be God of War III.

    While it doesn't look to bring anything entirely new or original to the series, the E3 demo blew me away. The graphics were awesome, the combat was fluid and brutal and was exactly what I had expected from the series conclusion.

    With almost an entire year to polish what was shown in the E3 demo, this game is going to be epic.

    I'm excited to find out how Kratos destroys the Gods and how his story comes to an end.

      The other games I'm looking forward to this year include:

      Dante's Inferno
      Bioshock 2
      Aliens Vs. Predator
      Heavy Rain
      Bad Company 2
      Final Fantasy XIII
      God of War III
      Red Dead Redemption
      Mod Nation Racers
      Dead Rising 2
      Fallout: New Vegas
      Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
      Force Unleashed 2

    If I have to narrow it to only 1 then Id have to go with Force Unleashed 2. Id like to see how they can screw it up this time.

    Game was good, but not great, I havent enjoyed a game in the Star Wars franchise since Battlefront. Will someone please release a game in this franchise that isnt half finished and buggy?!

    Bio 2 will be awesome and Im trying not to get too excited about it, or ill have to find a new job and missus and house.

    Only one?? Hmm, out of my list I'd probably say Mafia 2

    Having just finished SOTC recently and feeling a smidge underwhelmed, I can't say Team ICO's next is way up there for me. I'm sure it'll be grand, but I'm a little weary given I considered SOTC to be a step down or sideways from ICO, which I adored.

    Mine would have to be GT5 - yes it's been delayed a bajillion times, and it's probably bast it's prime (a la GTPSP), but even if that game turns out to be utter tripe, I'll still buy it.

    (close contenders; Red Dead Redemption, FFXIII)

    God of War 3....nothing more so

    I heard/read it may have been rated MA15+ by oflc already??? Please say it is so

    Is it 2010 though?

      Yes it passed classification on the 12th and has been rated MA 15+

      Its due for release in March this year.

    Im gonna have to say God of war 3 with mass effect 2, Red dead redemption and Splinter Cell conviction following close behind.

    AvP!!!! I'm totally going be all like "RAWR" and the marines are going be all like "ZOMG ITS PR3DATORZZ!!!" and then Aliens will fly in too and I'm really excited

      Uncut PC version will be close to gaming perfection. Its going to be like a FPS Starcraft!

        Man, I wish they had released Starcraft: Ghost. While not a FPS, it still would have been sweet.

      epic lolZ

      Yeh i'm with you man, AVP for me too

    If I had to limit it to one it would definately be Red Dead Redemption - can't wait to mosie into a town on horseback where I'm a wanted man...

    +1 for The Last Guardian


      But there are so many more that I need to have this year also...

    such cruelty as to force me to pick only one.

    Bioshock 2 - i loved the first one, i still consider dues ex the best game ever so you can imagine that the first bioshock came as a welcome releif.

    Yesterday I found out I got into uni so I'm quitting full time work here in Canberra to study game design in Brisbane. This morning (with the assistance of lasts nights alcohol) I booked flights to japan for a snowboarding trip in less than a month! 2010 is rad but actually right now I don't feel so good.


    Mass effect 2!
    Bioshock 2
    Alien Vs Pred
    CnC 4
    Battlefield badcompany 2
    Crackdown 2
    Halo Reach
    Project Natal

    big year!

    "Plastic Peripheral Hero Skating DJ Boarding Mega Party"
    Combining the joy of two failed plastic peripherals, you must scratch, cut and waggle your way through the entire musical catalogue of 2 Unlimited while balancing on a skate board hurtling downhill.

    Awesome fun and it only costs your dignity

    Mafia 2

    Hasn't really gotten any attention which is why I feel it will be a sleeper hit for 2010.

    If I was to sum up all my anticipation and excitement for the games coming out this year I've got to say Gran Tourismo 5. Of all the games I'm excited about for this year it's been the longest coming and I already know I'm going to spend a lot of time this year behind the wheel trying out the 1,000 or so cars the game thows at me.

    To date, GT4 is the only game I've every gone to a midnight launch for. I can easily see myself doing it again for GT5.

    Hrmmm, can't really think of any one game that's got me excited.

    Looking at some of everyone else's picks so far I'm wondering how far my tastes are drifting from the mainstream these days

    Huge fan of Splinter Cell, but after double agent my expectations are firmly set to low so as not to have any chance of disappointment

    Bioshock 2, ME2. Thought the first ones were merely ok, probably bargain bin these at some later date.

    GOW3, never played the series, not really interested.

    Last Guardian. Cautiously interested, loved Ico but hated Colossus.

    FF13, latest trailer got me a bit excited, however 10 and 12 failed to impress me so I'm not that hopeful this will be that different.

    Battlefield: BC2, cautiously optimistic I can have another good BF game (pretty much all been downhill since the original which is one of my favourite games ever)

    Lately I feel like I'm turning into a bitter old gaming veteran who can't help but remember the "good old days" of gaming and how much better they were :|

    I'm just going to pretend a new Zelda game for the Wii *is* in fact coming out this year and go with that as my most anticipated game for 2010.

    Splinter Cell: Conviction is probably the game I'm hanging out the most to play, so that's the one I'm most looking forward to.

    But funnily enough, if you told me I could *only play* one new game this year, that wouldn't be my pick. That'd probably be Mass Effect 2, Mafia 2, Heavy Rain, or maybe Last Guardian or Red Dead Redemption (if Roskstar figures out how make a game with good shooting mechanics).

    I'd say Doing Your Mum 2, but the first one was a massive let down.

    I'm Looking forward to someone releasing an RPG Action space flight sim.

    Since i've been a gamer all i've wanted is to be able to Explore space like startrek and land on planets and shoot down alien scum.

    The only game that comes close is X3( which i love), but it lacks in story and and is far too complicated for mass consumption.

    My dream is for X3, Freespace, and startrek to get it on :)

    P.s And eve online doesn't count their is no time in my life for subscription based games.

      That would be pretty awesome.

    Half-Life 2: Episode 3 please Valve ... or at the very least a sneak peak!

    Mario Galaxy 2 and FFXIII look great. I already got money from Xmas saved up for FFXIII.

    I might get Metroid Other M.
