Games already launched that you want to buy someday.

Starcraft 2. I was waiting for all three main parts to be released. They are all out and I can even get it for a discounted price, but I haven't bought it yet. I have a laptop that can run it, but I might wait until I have a dedicated gaming PC again.
Persona 5
Nier Automata
Mass Effect Andromeda
Resident Evil 7

For the first two I want to wait until I have an appropriate open time window to play them in; with the latter three I wait until they hit a price point that's acceptable to me.
Odin Sphere Leifthrasir (Vita)
Gravity Rush 2 (PS4)
Stardew Valley (PS4)
Little Nightmares (XBX)
Candle Man (XBX)
Dead Space 2 & 3 (XBX BC)
Tekken 7 (XBX)
Injustice 2 (XBX)
Dead Rising 4 (XBX)
Snake Pass (Not Sure)
Just Cause 4 (waiting on the XBX for performance improvements then ill buy)

Horizon Zero Dawn
Rocket League
Final Fantasy Type-0 HD
Persona 5

also does the DLC count ?, someday i'll buy Bloodborne : The Old Hunters


Bravely Default
Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
Ori and the Blind Forest (and its sequel) because it's the only XB1 console exclusive I'm desperate to play. It's just not enough to get me to buy the console.
Currently waiting on:
Horizons Zero Dawn
Kingdom Hearts 2.8
Digimon World Next Order
Crash Nsanity trilogy

There's probably more, but these are the ones in waiting to be really cheap. I also have a curiosity about Mighty Number 9 that I'll indulge on when it's like 5 dollars ( which it almost is)

I've been so behind.

It's been a while since I've bought anything really but I just purchased Horizon Zero Dawn and Uncharted 4 today. So I'm getting somewhere.
Injustice 2 and tekken 7. Absolutely love fighting games but I suck so terribly at them that online is pointless for me. Always hard to justify paying full price here in Australia.
Gravity Rush 2
Kingdom Hearts HD I.5 + II.5 ReMIX
Kingdom Hearts HD II.8: Final Chapter Prologue
Persona 5

Waiting on a sale to get these for $30 or less. I'm in no rush.
Nier Automata. Can't wait to get my hands on it but I just got gifted Persona 5 and I haven't even finished Dark Souls III. By the time I get to it it will have been on sale for sure.

Also Crosscode, Owlboy and Ori, all for similar reasons.

Xbox One
Killer Instinct

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Titanfall 2 (PC) hearing only good things about the campaign.

Mass Effect Andromeda (PC) played all other Mass Effect so I can't skip this one. Waiting for a good sale.

Nier: Automata (PC) not my genre but want to see what all the hype is about. Waiting for sale
About 200 games on my list that qualify. It makes me sad that most people see games as disposable/no longer valuable after their one year launch window. The reason I haven't bought them is because I only have so much bandwidth for games at a time.
Uncharted 3 and 4
Until Dawn
KH 1.5+2.5+2.8
Alien Isolation
Forza Horizon 3
Ratcher and Clank
Yakuza 0
Tales of Berseria
Tekken 7
Diablo 3
Farcry 4/Primal
Persona Q

Off the top of my head. I would have already bought a lot of these had I not spent my money on GAAS like league, and overwatch.
This is by far the most terrifying post in this thread lol. GAAS both works and eats into the sales of other games.

To answer the question, for this year alone just Yakuza 0 I guess. I also want Divinity: Original Sin for PS4. I'm waiting for both to hit that $20 price point but looking at both I have this feeling they'll stay at $40 and $30 forever.
BotW. This and The Last Guardian both had me really interested for a long time, and then I just never got them—I just liked them for the hype, I suppose. Only played TLG because someone got it for my birthday.
Night in the Woods is the main one (I'm holding out for a physical release), but Horizon and Nier are on my radar. I'll probably grab Project Diva: Future Tone someday, too; I love me a good rhythm game.
Horizon: Zero Dawn: Game looks fun, plus has robo dinos. Been to busy with other games that haven't gotten to it yet

Also Yakuza Zero: impressions I've seen from others really make me wanna give this series a go someday

Ohh and Nier Automata as well, heard the story is great
Just keeping to recent games otherwise this list will be too long.

Horizon: Zero Dawn
Final Fantasy XV

Night in the Woods
Princess Maker Refine
Princess Maker 2 Refine
When Our Journey Ends
Herald: An Interactive Period Drama

Reason: I have too many games as it is and don't need to add to my gigantic backlog. I will likely pull the trigger on the PS4 games if they hit $20.
Too many to list. Most of the games I'm excited to eventually play are ones already released, ranging from recent releases to stuff that is 25 years old.

There's plenty from the first half of 2017 alone though:

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
Tales of Berseria
Yakuza 0
Horizon: Zero Dawn
Torment: Tides of Numenara
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Nier: Automata
Mass Effect: Andromeda
Persona 5
There are 70 games on my Steam wishlist, and except maybe for 2 or 3 games all of them were released already.

But the ones I want the most are:

- Wolfenstein
- Prey
- Rise of the Tomb Raider
- Dark Souls 3
- Shadow of Mordor
- Nier Automata

For PS4: Horizon Zero Dawn and Uncharted 4.
