Weekend Open Forum: What are your most anticipated games of 2014?

Saturday, January 11, 2014

With the release of the new consoles behind us for the most part, its time to look forward at what we know so far about this year's game releases. As I've mentioned on WOF before, I am a fan of the stealth genre and had a lot of fun getting caught up with Splinter Cell: Blacklist over the holidays (a nice return to form IMO). So naturally it's the next sneaking experiences I have my eye on, for example, the new Thief game.

While initial impressions on Thief have been mixed, Blacklist seemed to muster up a similar lack-luster pre-release response and I turned out to be more than pleasantly surprised with the game once I went hands on. So I am hoping the capable folks at Eidos Montreal pull through much the way the company did with Human Revolution.

Outside of Thief, the newly revealed Alien: Isolation has me intrigued and I'll definitely play Hotline Miami 2 when it drops, but The Witcher 3 looks incredible. Unfortunately, I have to admit, I have never played a Witcher game before (embarrassing, I know), but I'm seriously looking forward to Wild Hunt. The Order: 1886 looks like it has an interesting setting, but something about it still has me skeptical. So for this week's open forum we want to know what games you are most looking forward to? Have the indies won you over yet or will the AAA titles take up most of your time?


Yes, can't wait for that to surface
