So, with 2014 right around the corner, and with some of the awesome releases we've had this year, I thought it would be interesting to hear which games people have enjoyed the most, and the games people are looking forward to in 2014, or even which games they are hoping/wishing for.
Alrighty, I'll start. So even though I only got into the series this year, Starcraft II - Heart of the Swarm. When a friend introduced me to this and I started playing the multiplayer, I fell in love with it immediately. It's everything I want in an online game, something where you need to think quickly, and be able to act fast and precise. I only got this about two months ago, and it's been a steep learning curve that I've thouroughly enjoyed.
No hate please, but DmC: Devil May Cry. I've played every single DMC game, and the reboot, by far is my favourite, oddly enough. Good plot, good character development (The new Dante isn't that bad), and probably the most fluent combat system I've seen to date.
So, here's my list for next year:
Kingdom Under Fire II - KuF: Heroes was my favourite xbox game, a blend of the Total War series and Dynasty Warriors. With a new single player plus an online multiplayer mode, let's just say my housemates have been warned, when this drops, it'll be a while before they see me
Supposedly it's finally going to be released next year (It was in development hell when I was in high school, I've waited a long time for this)
Smash Bros 3DS - I said Nintendo need to make a handheld smash bros game since the original 3DS launched. Its something you'll definitely want to play with friends.
Tekken X Street Fighter - This got announced like 3 years ago. Come on guys, I wanna see the Street Fighter guys on the Tekken engine.
So I've pretty much lost all faith in FPS games. Last one I bought was Battlefield 4, which I pre-ordered hoping I was going to get some sort of enjoyment out of it. Truth be told I went back to UT2004. Here's hoping 2014 brings me something in that genre I can enjoy.
So there's my essay on my end-of-year thoughts regarding releases, what do you guys think?
