    I'm wondering what games everyone is most looking forward to for the upcoming year, and why. Lets do the top 3.

    From april's OXM they've provided this list of probable 2006 releases, '2006 in preview'. Some of them seem a little questionable for 06 release, but it's the best list we have.

    I've added a few obvious ones that were missing(in red), if you know of more just post em and I'll update the list:
    Mine are:
    - Mass Effect (by a mile)
    - Blue Dragon
    - Too Human (or Lost Odyssey if it's actually in 06)
    (GOW, Huxley, Oblivion, GRAW, SC4 honourable mention)

    * interesting N3 isn't on this list, i wonder if OXM has reason to believe it won't be coming to the west. eM's on there...

    Great job on the list. I'm personally looking foraward to GoW, Blue Dragon, and anything from bioware.

    Where's Halo 3? ;)

    What platform is that 'project offset' for? Is it even a game or is it just a tech demo?

    And though im not really stoked for it, i think that godfather game is missing.

    1. SC: Double Agent (i am sc freak)
    2. Gears of War (cliffyB rules)
    3. Blue Dragon (remember the trailer :twisted: )

    also: Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, GRAW, Lost Odyssey, Mass Effect, Too Human

    perhaps: Chromehounds, BF2: MC, Prey, MotoGP 06

    They are all AAA games, splendid visuals. big production. This will be great year. :razz:

    from what I have heard/read from their website and elsewhere, yes it is a game .. platform(s) unknown ATM, although again from what I have heard/read, it seems like PC will be one of the platforms it is going to be released on




    .. since it hasn't been mentioned yet, I'll mention N3: Ninety Nine Nights ..

    .. oh, and regarding that OXM list.. I know it's not an official list, but IMO there's absolutely no way that RE5 will be out in 2006

    Lost Odyssey - I've much more faith on this than the Blue Dragon. Though very little has been shown of LO, what has been shown of BD has left me cold. From what info there is of Blue Dragon, it sounds a bit too simple "action rpg". Also the graphics have so far left me very unimpressed.

    RE5 - RE4 brought back my faith on the series.

    Crackdown - should be good, considering the developer

    Too human and Far Cry by far. The rest (well, not all of the rest) look like typical "THIS IS WHAT NEXT-GEN IS ALL ABOUT!!" type of games.

    I would be quite shocked if either Too Human or Mass Effect made it in 2006. Neither developer has a reputation for speed. Early 2007, maybe. Same goes for Halo 3, Crackdown, RE5, Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Lost Planet, APB, Alan Wake, Killing Day, Shadowrun and Project Offset. Actually, I doubt that last one will hit the X360 at all.

    Other than that:
    Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter
    Splinter Cell 4
    Top Spin 2 (I expect very few to agree with me about this one)
    Oblivion
    Gears of War
    Ninety-Nine Nights
    Far Cry Instincts Predator
    Dead Rising
    Tomb Raider: Legend
    Chromehounds (this or Armored Core 4)
    X-Men 3 video game (maybe...)
    Saint's Row (another maybe)
    The Outfit

    And I really want to know what Rare is up to. Hopefully they have a team dedicated to XBLA.

    Street Fighter 2 and Monster Madness on XBLA should entice some buyers (including myself). I expect there's going to be a torrent of XBLA announcements between GDC and E3, most of which will launch before the year's end.

    Lastly, to heck with whether these games are really next-gen or not. This-gen games are worth purchasing, so I don't see how more impressive versions of them are not.

    Neither Gamespot nor IGN show it as such. *shrugs*

    That reminds me: Project Assassins, if it comes to the X360, might be worth buying.

    Games like RE5(and Mass effect,lost planet e.t.c) don't have a chance of coming out in 2006.
    When it comes to games that have a chance of coming out in 2006 my most anticipated are:
    1)Gears of War
    2)Too Human
    3)ESIV:Oblivion
    4)GRAW
    5)Dead Rising

    First impression, that's quite a long list... Second impression, can't help wonder how complete it is... Where is N3, Over G, rumble roses to name 3 that are comming out pretty soon.

    Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, GOW, Mass Effect
    are my equal top 3 right as it stands. Not that you can buy 360s here yet though... :)

    RE5, GoW, Too Human are those I'm waiting for to see what that box is really capable of.

    I looking forward to Mass Effects too - but I am pretty sure it scheduled for an 07 release (same goes for Too Human).

    Another game that could be a load of fun could be Crackdown, Test Drive Unlimited also looks interesting.
