Top 10 Anticipated Games
1. Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U (3DS/WiiU) - If you came into this thinking I was going to pick some other stupid game that doesn't matter as my most anticipated game of 2014, you were sorely mistaken. I mean, I have an ENTIRE SERIES OF ENTRIES dedicated to this thing. I'm pretty hyped yo.
2. Titanfall (Win/360/XBO) - An online FPS multiplayer - with GIANT FREAKING MECHS dropped right in the center. Color me extremely excited for this game.
3. Project CARS (Win/Steam/WiiU/XBO/PS4) - This super ambitious title seems to be coming to every single platform on the planet, so hopefully the quality doesn't suffer as a result. The game looks beautiful and sounds really fun (and this is coming from someone who hasn't ever played Forza or Gran Turismo or any other car-centric games very heavily).
4. Professor Layton vs. Pheonix Wright: Ace Attorney (3DS) - I've been waiting on this game since 2011. Have I played either series much? No, because I'm not interested in drowning myself in the multitude of games at this point in time. But this is another game that I would have bought the 3DS for.
5. Tadpole Treble (Win/Mac/WiiU) - A game funded via Kickstarter; it's from the creator of the comic Brawl in the Family, Matthew Taranto, and features his usual art style, with a heavy basis in rhythm and music. It's not as large as the other titles on this list, but I'm probably more likely to play this (and play it often) than the other games.
6. Destiny (360/XBO/PS3/PS4) - Is there anybody that isn't interested in this game? This would rank higher, except that I'm probably never going to play it unless my brother picks it up for his 360, so I've been trying to keep my hype to a minimum. As you can see, it is clearly working spectacularly.
7. Bravely Default (3DS) - I don't generally play JRPGs, but the media's obsession with this title has managed to pique my interests. I tried out the demo briefly, though I did not have time to fully introduce myself to the play style. I'm also not happy about it being censored, more to the point of stuff being censored here when it's not elsewhere (why do games have to be censored anywhere I mean really governments pssh).
8. Mario Kart 8 (WiiU) - The Mario Kart franchise's chance to redeem itself to me after the appalling Mario Kart 7. I'm not convinced they can do it, since I dislike how they threw in the gliders and underwater driving as gimmicks, the customization system was sub-par, and now they're adding anti-gravity (and I've heard that the bikes are treated as karts this time too, ugh). But I'll give it a chance, just the same. It's also been a series best on home consoles (minus Mario Kart DS, my favorite in the franchise).
9. Pillars of Eternity (PC) - All computer gamers will have access to this game, another one funded by Kickstarter. I don't know too much about it, but what I do like interests me a great deal.
10. The Elder Scrolls Online (Win/Mac/XBO/PS4) - I doubt I'll play this, since I'd rather not experience the life-sucking abyss that is an MMORPG, but still... I feel the urge to at least give it a shot.
And that's about it; as far as video games go, I'm not quite as obsessive over new titles as I am with movies (mostly because I could see like, 8 movies for the price of some video games). So woohoo
