    1. FFXVI
    2. RE4 Remake
    3. Dead Space Remake

    10. Bomb Rush Cyberfunk


  • I always find these difficult because there's always so much that falls into the 'may or may not come out next year' bracket and don't really have a solid release date. That said, here is my rather rushed attempt to name ten in no particular order:

    The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure
    Resident Evil 4
    Final Fantasy VII Rebirth
    The Legend of Heroes: Trails into Reverie
    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl
    The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails
    Dead Space Remake
    Alan Wake 2
    Atomic Heart
    Fatal Frame IV: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse. ( I've only really added this because it's so nice to see, I've already beaten it a few times so I guess I'm not truly 'excited' for it)

    nice list but dead space remake over silent hill 2?

    i never played original one so remake is my introduction to series.



  • I have no faith in that coming next year



  • Hmmm. The likelihood of me buying 10 new release games next year is pretty slim, but there are a good handful I am anticipating. I'll try to order them. I'll include some TBD release dates.

    1. VtM: Bloodlines 2

    No release date anymore, but last I checked, they hired a 'Fixer' and a new studio to finish the job. Not completely unheard of (i.e. Halo Infinite) for a Fixer to come in and make fast progress. Wouldn't be surprised if this comes out late-2022. My expectations are obviously in check, but I'm still excited.

    1. Baldur's Gate III

    Haven't touched the Early Access, but given Divinity Original Sin II being one of the best RPGs I've ever played, I expect this to be bigger and better.

    1. Starfield

    Expectations in check here. I don't care too much about space exploring, but I love good ol Bethesda side quests. I hope it's a return to form. I haven't loved any of their games since Oblivion.

    1. Resident Evil 4 (Remake)

    It's RE4 but with more atmosphere. This has a chance of being one of the most fun and replayable games ever made.

    1. Dead Space (Remake)

    I got Dead Space for free back when EA Origin App launched and it never worked properly cause EA is shit. And because it never worked, I never played it. Now I anticipate trying this remake as my first play of DS.

    1. FF XVI

    FFVII:R was amazing. No reason to believe this won't also be awesome.

    1. Hollow Knight: Silksong

    Hollow Knight is a classic, but it had room for improvement. I guarantee this will step the series up in every way.

    1. Diablo IV

    Never played Diablo in my life, but this looks like fun. The aesthetic is much better than Diablo III and I look forward to trying the OG looter RPG out.

    1. Frostpunk 2

    Not convinced this is a 2023 game, but either way, I can't wait to play this. If you played Sleeper Citizen in 2022, Frostpunk has some similar qualities of making hard choices and living in a dystopia.

    1. Bomb Rush Cyberfunk

    2000s era nostalgia. What more can I say?



  • @bam541

    The Invincible looks cool but I want to see more of it before I get excited to play it. I worry it'll be a bit too "walking sim" for my liking but the aesthetic is awesome and 11 Bit is a good publisher (Beat Cop, Frostpunk).



  • @dipset
    FYI a few tracks from Bomb Rush have been released if you want to give them a listen. They good jamz
    Youtube Video



  • My top 3 most anticipated games were also on my list of most anticipated games of 2022 so I'm hopeful they actually will release next year.

    1. The Legend Of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
    2. Baldur's Gate III
    3. Starfield
    4. Fire Emblem: Engage
    5. Octopath Traveler II
    6. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
    7. Spider-Man 2
    8. Sea of Stars
    9. Atomic Heart
    10. Resident Evil 4


  • The Invincible - Seems like the kind of game it will get 6/10 everywhere and end up being on my top 3 for the year.

    Starfield - I love their games and many years have passed since Fallout 4

    Atomic Heart - Seems janky but very cool

    System Shock - From what I've played so far it will be great

    Zelda TotK - Recent Switch titles left me somewhat skeptical

    Silksong - sequel to a GOAT. Very high expectations! I'm nervous!

    Redfall - Just because it's Arkane. The more they show the better it looks but still...

    Metroid Prime 4... please 😢

    Frostpunk 2 - Didn't knew it was supposed to come out, but if it is I'm all in.

    STALKER 2 - For the worst possible reasons it won't come out but I still have hope.



  • @dipset it reminds me a lot of Firewatch which I really like. I'm curious if it's more than that but either way I'm probably gonna be excited for it, unless it just goes full on dumb game.

    Do you mean in terms of missing release dates or not meeting your expectations?



  • I have reservations about the System Shock remake. I haven't played the original but I've very aware of it. The original has such an incredible and atmospheric aesthetic. This remake looks really cartoony and vivid. It seems like they made the decision to go loud visually, and it doesn't resonate with me at all. Compare it to RE4 Remake where the new visuals are almost like an expansion of the original style that couldn't be accomplished on Game Cube.



  • @e_zed_eh_intern It's just that the hardware's age is showing.

    comparing big budet AAAA remake to indie remake? come on.

    mainstream media will praise anything mainstream but System shock definitely better. more creative, more deeper.



  • @phbz Ah, roger that. I played BOTW on Wii U but I remember Jones even said that game, a launch title, had frame rate issues on Switch too. What have the more recent culprits been? I've got a fairly tall pile of Switch games I have yet to open and play so hopefully none of those :P



  • @b-cell

    Plenty of indies have great art styles. System Shock remake's art style looks pretty bubblegum / art pop mainstream visuals to me. So no, I don't think it looks more creative and better.

    It looks like an extension of Bioshock Infinite than System Shock.

    Just my take on the visuals. I might like it once it's in my hands.



  • @e_zed_eh_intern Bayonetta 3 can look ugly AF and performance isn't smooth at all. Mario + Rabbids wasn't great too, looked worse than the original.

    I still trust Nintendo to deliver a great game.

    the level design and inventory system is anything but Bioshock infinite LOL!!
