Sure, a most anticipated game of 2014 may sound a little silly, but in practice it’s been a lot of fun! Here’s what you guys and girls are most looking forward to next year…
Good choice. When I think that we were so close to play this game right now as a launch title for both Xbox One and PS4, I get a little sad. But I’m really hoping this delay allows the game to reach its full potential.
2nd Place: The Witcher 3
3rd Place: Titanfall
Usually I might use this space to talk about an obscure Indie game that needs more attention but above all I have to be honest with myself. The game I’m most looking forward to next year is a game about shooting other human beings and jumping in giant robots and firing rockets at one another.
It’s a video game about running along walls and doing double jumps. About ejecting from giant robots, landing on other giant robots and ripping another person out of that giant robot.
But I’m not hyped about Titanfall because of what the game allows you to do. I’m hyped because I’ve played it and I know how incredible it feels to do all of these things. So many video games are stacked with bullet points — things that sound good in theory yet the execution is lacking. I have already seen it first hand — that won’t be the case with Titanfall.
I’m looking forward to Titanfall because it feels like a genuine evolution. It is crackling with original ideas and looks set to reinvent a genre that I love, a genre that has become incredibly stagnant. I want a multiplayer shooter to feel relevant and innovative again. Titanfall may answer that call.
