Most Wanted Games: 2008 Edition

After writing about Prototype and reading Blankman’s comment about it being in his top five most anticipated.

I wanted to mention my five most anticipated games in 2008. I’m going to make some assumptions of games that will be coming out this year like God of War 3 and Gears 2. There are a ton of other good games coming out this year as well, like MGS 4, Killzone 2, Ninja Gaiden 2 and Super Smash Brothers.

Any way, here is my top five list of most wanted games right now:

Gears of War 2: Well, duh. Read the name of the site. I just hope that the Epic team spends a lot of time perfecting the net code so we don’t have a ton of shenanigans like before.

God of War 3/God of War: Chains of Olympus: I’m a Kratos-phile and I wear it on my sleeve. That bald badass MFer is one fun person to control. He takes down huge enemies in cinematic fashion. I’m lumping these two together because it’s the same franchise.

Prototype: Yeah, I’m that excited about this game. My hype meter is on overload right now. And yeah, this game is higher than GTA IV mainly because it’s new. GTA is a game in which you know what to expect and frankly, even though I’ve owned all of the GTA games, I’ve never finished one. The characters have never been interesting enough to finish. The closest I got was Vice City because I loved the aesthetic of that game. What makes me so excited about this game is the combination of my love for Assassin’s Creed and the scaling of buildings and whatnot as well as the Hulk: Ultimate Destruction legacy. That game was a blast.

Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway: This might surprise a few folks, but the videos have really sold me on this game. It just looks like they really thought through every single detail. And since rumor has it that the next Call of Duty is going back to WWII but is being developed by Treyarch and not Infinity Ward, I need me a great shooter and I think the Brothers in Arms people can do it.

Halo Wars: Number five was down to three titles for me. Killzone 2, Alan Wake and Halo Wars. Yes, I’m not the biggest RTS guy in the world, but I still do love the Halo universe. And if it plays anything like something like Advance Wars on the DS, then I think I’m going to love it.

The announcement of Resistence 2 has made me decide that I want to finish the campaign of Resistance as well (even though I wasn’t crazy about that game). I’m also pretty excited about Rainbow Six: Vegas 2.

What would your top five list be?
