There's a lot of people on here with an X1, myself included. I think the problem is that the Gears 4 reveal kind of sucked and Quantum Break is still kind of a mystery in terms of what type of game it really is. My hype for it is solely based on Remedy because honestly the gameplay bits have not done anything for me.
I personally didn't expect it, actually. It got It got #8 in 2014, and #6 in 2015; I figured it would have been in the 6-8 range again, with people being a bit tired of anticipating it. I guess it's the effect of believing it'll actually come out this year.
I expected it cause in general the reception is very positive, and there's really nothing for people to have reservations about while waiting for it. Its another Persona that is following after 3 and 4 after more than 7 years.
Also glad to see Nier Automata relatively high.
What i am surprised about is that Star Ocean just barely made the second list however.
Disappointing results, but also not that surprising. That's what happens when you get good conferences in a year.
Also, DOAX3 in the top 100! Cool to see Ni-Oh getting his own banner too, and gg Zelda for staying this high with no info.
The amount of excitement for Mass Effect is truly puzzling.
1. We've seen nothing on the game.
2. It's being developed by a completely different team, largely staffed by the Army of Two team.
3. Mass Effect 3 was such a colossal goat fuck that you'd think it would've soured people on the franchise.
I guess it's true, stick a known brand name on something and people will go for it no matter what.
I think it's just down to a complete lack of western media and date. But everything they show for the Japanese release seems to get people excited. People loved the update today that shows the artwork that they're using for skills
1. Which is why it's only #6.
2.....with BioWare writers and the dudes who did Mass Effect 3's MP, which was stellar, yes.
3. The logical conclusion is that not many people actually thought ME3 was a colossal goat fuck that soured them on the series.
4. Until we see otherwise, yes.
Just checked my list again, seems like I had Project Setsuna written there. (Even though I understand Japanese so yeah, lol.)
SE needs to give it a proper name for the west already.. or give any info at all regarding the western release.
