    What video games are you most excited for in the next 6 months?

    With only six months remaining in the 2012 calendar year, we've had E3 and now have a better idea of what is waiting for us.  What games are you excited for (whether or not they were at E3) that are going to be coming out this year?

    Dota 2 from Valve, that is if it comes out this year. You never know with Valve but they do always make high quality games.

    It seems like games left to come out this year are basically nothing but sequels or the completion of a trilogy set per game. With technology advancing, gameplay improving, and graphics skyrocketing, it's hard to tell which game I would prefer to play first or last. But to top off, if anything, the new Spider-Man game would definitely be something I would be looking forward too considering the fact that it's been quite awhile since they've last made one. A favorite of mine for almost a decade now is the development of Madden and their "unpredictable" new features that they try to implement always gives gamers a sense of what it really feels like to be on the field.

      I think instead of adding new features they need to go ahead and fix the big problems with the game. Maybe go on a 2 year cycle instead of one. Think of the development team had 2 years to polish a game that already is good. It could be great then!

      I have my pros and cons about Madden but I feel like to some extent that they're trying to compete with the likes of NCAA. Don't get me wrong, Madden has done their deed as the only surviving NFL game, set aside their before competitor 2K.

      A promising game that isn't a sequel or completion is Dishonored.  It's probably the game I am most looking forward to playing in the next 6 months.

    Guild Wars 2, Metro Last Light, and Bioshock Infinite. I know GW2 will be releasing this year not sure about the other two.

    Assassins Creed III - I really find the American Revolution setting to be interesting.

    Lego Batman 2 - I'm a fan of the lego games that  Traveller's  Tales comes out with. Simple but humorous .

    The rest are scheduled (or were pushed back) for a 2013 release.

    Black Ops 2, even though I will not be buying it when it comes out, due to the fact that they refuse to update their very old game engine... I know that them and EA aren't the best of friends when it comes to competition, but that's no excuse for them not to be looking into developments into their game.

    Plus, they need to actually spend more time on each game they make as they aren't really improving at all, and with 1 coming out every year they are evidently becoming short on ideas.

    Most probably Assassin's Creed 3. Got it on pre-order and I really enjoyed all the other AC games, so, yeah. Will definitely be spending a couple of days burning through that. Will also throw up a review when I finally peel myself away from it!

    Strangely, XCOM: Enemy Unknown. I just found out about this franchise this year, and it looks amazing. I'm a big board gamer and that type of turn-based tactical gameplay is right up my alley.

    And of course, Assassin's Creed III, Bioshock: Infinite and Dishonored.

      haven't heard of XCOM, but the other three are definitely high on my list as well
