  1. Uncharted 4: Coming off of The Last of Us, I'm very excited to see how Naughty Dog changes Uncharted with what they've learned technically, and narratively.
  2. The Last Guardian: Will it live up to the Shadow of the Colossus? Probably not, but it's sure to still be one of the most unique games to come out in 2016.
  3. Persona 5: Cannot wait to see how weird and quirky this one is.
  4. Horizon Zero Dawn: The setting and premise are fantastic. If they fill out the world with an interesting backstory and fun quests and gameplay, then it'll be a contender for GOTY.
  5. Mass Effect Andromeda: One of my favorite franchises. I'm excited to see how they reset for a new trilogy.
  6. Firewatch: The people behind this game are great storytellers. Sure to be one of the best narrative games of the year.
  7. No Man's Sky: Overhyped, yet still one of the most interesting games technically and graphically for next year.
  8. Tacoma: Another narrative-heavy game, which I will be picking up because of the team behind it.
  9. Mafia III: I love the setting in the Southern Bayou, and the Mafia games are fun GTA-like romps.
  10. Rise of the Tomb Raider (PC): I've only heard good things about the game, and can't wait to own it on the best platform.

1. Dark Souls 3 : Another game in the Souls series almost seems too good to be true, but it's reality and only four months away. The first two games have already been some of the greatest games in gaming history and the third should continue the legacy.
2. Ratchet & Clank : The funniest series in gaming is back. Fortunately the humor is backed up by feel good gameplay and beautiful worlds, I can't wait to play through this twice as is the R&C tradition.

Not many other developers or games have earned enough trust to be anticipated.

1. Gears of War: Gears is my jam and it is the reason that I am an xbox fan boy it is my halo. Im a little worried about a new studio working on it but I have faith now that ron ferguson is back.


2. Dark souls 3: This is going to be the game. It has the main designer back(can't think of his name right now). From what I have seen it looks amazing and looks like it will have different builds which is something blood borne lacked.


3. Cuphead: Come on do you see this game. It is easily the most beautiful game I have ever seen and its all boss battles. Thats awesome I love boss battles. I have been waiting for this game all my life.


4. Horizon: Zero dawn: This game from what they have shown at e3 and paris looks amazing. Im a little weary about it being from guerrilla but from what they have shown I shouldn't doubt them.

5. Scalebound: A giant game about fighting dragons made by platinum. That sounds awesome and without seeing the gameplay I already want it. After seeing the game play I wasn't blown away but I know its going to be fun.

6. Crackdown 3: If this game makes it out in 2016 even though I doubt it I will be in heaven. I never played crackdown 1 or 2 but the destruction they showed at games con it looks amazing. Now if me and my friends can have that destruction while chasing criminals count me right in.

7. Quantum Break: This game shouldn't be this low but my god is next year going to be great. I don't know how I feel about the live action stuff but now that they got real T.V. and movie actors Im more excited. The gameplay they have shown also looks really good.

8. Farcry Primal: My favorite thing in far cry games is the bow and arrow's. A whole game set in ice age times that revolves around a bow and arrow awesome. The gameplay I saw looks about what I would expect so that why it's now higher.

9. Mirrors Edge: catalyst: I enjoyed the first mirrors edge and since this one is open worlds it has me more excited. I got bored of the first one fast though so thats why its not higher.

10. Enter the gungeon: This looks like the binding of isaac and nuclear thrones mashed together. Do I need to say more.

Extra: Mark my words everyone mark them. This E3 we are getting titan fall 2 announced and it will be released this time in fall because EA needs a shooter. It will also be phenomol and most likely my game of the year if gears isn't it.

This, this is insanely hard. So many amazing games coming next year! All listed here are PS4 versions not that it matters.

1. Persona 5: Because Persona 4 Golden was simply amazing.

2. Horizon Zero Dawn: Zoids!

3. The Last Guardian: Firstly because I loved Ico so much and secondly I never thought it would actually happen.

4. Dark Souls III: Not much to say. Played every souls game, can't get enough of them.

5. Deus Ex Mankind Divided: More Gravel voices :D

6. Ni-Oh: Loved the old Onimusha games and having those mixed with Souls type combat, well they can't have my money fast enough.

7. Ratchet & Clank: Never played the original as I only got into the series last gen so playing it in those amazing visuals with new stuff? Yes, yes please.

8. Kingdom Come Deliverence: was one of the first backers. Looks so gooood.

9. Gravity Rush 2: So pretty, oh so pretty! Love the amazing art and unique gameplay this seems to deliver.

10. Firewatch: Was sold on the first trailer. Great premise all round. Stand out game.

Oh this time of the year already. Now this needs some serious thinking as there is lot of highly anticipated games for me. Need to actually investigate what games are even supposed to be launched next year.

Really excited to see how many games in the results will be same as last years voting.

1. Mass Effect Andromeda: my favorite trilogy in gaming...new art / direction looks and sounds incredible. If Bioware can can capture the ambiance of the first 3 with a great sci-fi story, solid gameplay and gorgeous graphics, it'll be one of my favorite games of all time
2. Horizon Zero Dawn: from what we know so far, it's a gorgeous open world game featuring robot dinosaurs. It sounds like a dream game from when I was a kid.
3. Final Fantasy XV: honestly, FFXV could be #1 or unranked, depending how it turns out. I haven't enjoyed a FF since XII (haven't played the MMOs), and hope that the series returns to it's roots a bit with a less convoluted story. VI, VII, IX, etc. had great gameplay...but they were treasures because they story kept you wanting more. If XV has that, it will be amazing.
4. Dark Souls 3: after not enjoying DkS2 as much as Demon's or DkS1, I was blown away by Bloodborne. Although this is a return to the medieval setting of previous games in the series, it looks to have taken a few cues from BB.
5. Day of the Tentacle Remastered: DotT is my favorite PnC of all time. Although screens of the remake look a bit "lifeless" I think it looks great in motion. Haven't played it in 15+ years so I'm genuinely pumped to jump back in.
6. Uncharted 4: probably should be higher on the list but I feel like I 100% know what to expect. That doesn't mean I won't play and love the shit out of it though.
7. Street Fighter V: I suck at fighting games but SFV looks so unbelievably good. This will be the entry where I jump back in.
8. Ni-Oh
9. Persona 5
10. The Last Guardian

Posting so I won't forget...will come back in to edit in thoughts

1. Persona 5 : P4 is the greatest achievement of mankind.

4. Final Fantasy XV : I thought the demo was impressive, really like everything I've seen from the game.
5. Uncharted 4 : Played all the other ones, not gonna miss this.
6. Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth : Been so long since I've played a Digimon game...

1. Zero Escape 3- Zero Time Dilemma : Sequel to my GOAT. If this is bad I'll lose all faith in gaming.

2. New Danganronpa V3 : Love what we've seen so far, DR is my second favorite franchise (after Zero Escape), goddamn it MORE CLASS TRIALS FUCK YES

3. Adrift In A Cobalt Eternity : Unknown-ass promising OELVN (Original English Language Visual Novel). Has a great composer cast: Shinji Hosoe (999, Virtue's Last Reward), Xenoblade's composer, etc.
Due 2016 but more than likely won't make it.
Zero Escape inspired. Sign me the fuck up.

4. Root Double : This VN sounds amazing. Hope it lives up to Remember11, which is the closest thing I can think when it comes to this VN. R11 is one of my favorite VNs ever, so SIGN. ME. THE. FUCK. UP.

5. Root Letter : More Vita VNs are always a good thing. Unrelated to game #4.

Somehow can't remember any more 2016 confirmed titles. Is Steins; Gate 0 out yet?

Non-2016 confirmed titles I'm hyped for:
Exogenesis ~Perils Of Rebirth~
System Shock Remake
System Shock 3

1. Uncharted 4 : Have been a fan of the series since finishing Uncharted 2 in 2010, this is the return of Druckmann and Straley to the franchise and it will be interesting to see how the series (at least Naughty Dog's games) ends.
2. Horizon: Zero Dawn : Interesting setting, new IP and it's an open world action RPG from the writer of Fallout New Vegas.
3. The Legend of Zelda Wii U : The next 3D Zelda with what seems to be an awesome art style.
4. The Last Guardian : Interesting dynamic between Trico and the boy and Ueda and teams' next game.
5. Final Fantasy XV : Even if it's no longer Versus XIII/has the original vision it still has great potential.
