2017 is almost over, and while there remain many great unplayed games from this year for most of us, 2018 is nearly upon us.

What are your most anticipated titles that are likely to release next year? fun one, which do you think will be the biggest let down?

Ace Combat 7, Dragon Quest 11, Kingdom Come Deliverance, Valkyria Chronicles 4, Spiderman, Project Octopath Traveler, and Vampyr are all up there for me. also trails of cold steel 3 along with 1 and 2 hitting ps4. and im sure im forgetting some as I quickly bang this out.
of these, Vampyr I think has the most potential to let me down, maybe. - KCD ended up being the one that's let me down the most so far as of july, its just not good on consoles because they didnt put enough time into adjusting the systems to a controller, but im gonna try again on PC later. but vampyr was janky too, great concepts though as an IP it has potential, feels like an old game

overall I think the biggest disappointment for me will be sea of thieves, that has been high up there for me since its announcement but the more that comes out about it the more its not what I hoped for in nearly any way. I guess i'll just keep playing sid meiers pirates, maybe look into some mods for it to satisfy my needs for good fun pirating adventures.


predictions.....just throw some fun crap out and we'll see if any of it sticks.
-pokemon switch is huge- it will be next year lol, so this will push to next years topic
-smash switch announced - got it, but not exactly a stretch to expect it
-kingdom hearts 3 actually releases - missed it THAT much...maybe
-FF7 remake dated for 2019, lots of new info and footage at E3 and throughout the year - with the project scrapping and starting over we might see it for the 25th anniversary in 2022 lol
-Bethesda finally reveals Starfield, but does not reveal ES6. - half right
-Cyberpunk 2077 gets some new info revealed but still no real trailer, indicating that the game is 2020 at best, and cdpr's last game on current gen consoles before shifting to what comes next - fairly accurate, still no gameplay trailer to the public, behind closed doors demo was pre-alpha, looks like 2020 at best is likely though
-Red dead redemption 2 slips again, but only a little. got it..for now
-far cry 5 ends up being surprisingly good, like really good - eh, its very ok, but not what I expected
-mainline fire emblem for switch revealed - got it, yay!!!
-Ubisoft and Ancel announce that Wild just wasn't working and focus is being moved to BG&E2 (I don't want that to happen, but no news about this game at all has me worried)not exactly announced, but no news on wild still feels bad
-Dragon Age 4 revealed but is a ways off - got it, 3 years out
-the backlash from battlefront 2 causes problems for Anthem, EA blames bioware seems to be a thing, much content I see for anthem seems to indicate heavy skepticism for anthem
-switch virtual console is revealed, and our Wii U VC purchases carry (hey I can dream lol) - once again Nintendo shows me why I didn't buy a Nintendo console for over 15 years
-more remasters (I know this one is a stretch) ya, but I mean ..that's gonna be forever. im betting ps5 and next gen is full of them too
-ports of games from the last year or two to the switch, LOTS of them. indies and AAA's alike. (Furi was announced today) also not a stretch, im sure it will continue
-no new consoles revealed - accurate, and I don't think we see them next year either
-will see Nintendo begin to have all its main teams focus on switch and 3ds continues to dwindle. (this may already be the case?) - somewhat? 3ds games, at least major ones, seem to be slowing, but support for the system til 2020 was announced

that's good, because rdr2 will likely be here before the summer, but last of us 2 is 2019 at best im guessing. kids and I are really excited about rdr2 as well, though I still don't like the title.

Man, I can only imagine! Just look at what they did with the next gen port of GTA 5. I messed around with it for the first time a few days ago and I was blown away. I can only imagine how insanely good RDR 2 will look.

Why? Did you want them to go with something new instead of Redemption 2?

I think most people's issue with it is that it's supposed to be a prequel so it doesn't make sense to have it end with "2".

But what do you think about Last of Us 2 & Red Dead Redemption? Inquiring minds want to know.

I can't wait for The Last Of Us 2. Though i'll probably play RDR2 at some point, i wasn't blown away by the first one, like most others were. It just felt like Grand Theft Auto, on a horse, to me.

Prediction: Metroid Prime 4 is not gonna come out in 2018.
It just doesn't seem like something that's gonna happen. All the interviews I have seen say it might be later, and they did not show any footage at E3.

Games that look good that I can think of right now:
Sea of Thieves
Anthem
MH World
Spider Man (can't play it though, no PS4)
A Way Out
Kirby 2018

The games I'm most looking forward to are God Of War on PlayStation 4 and Metroid Prime 4 on Switch, though I worry a little bit about MP4 since it isn't being made by Retro and I don't want it to suck because the Prime games are the only Metroid games I like.
Now that I have PS VR I guess I'm looking forward to what that has coming out too.

Ya usually by the time they announce something it's pretty far along. I like looking forward to things because I like seeing where things are going but it's also cool when they mix it up and have short times from reveal to release

I much prefer a game to be announced then released a few months later. I like seeing the finished product rather than a bunch of "in game engine" trailers that give a false representation of what the game will end up being. Theres just been too much slight of hand tricks by devs this generation that I don't trust what is shown if its revealed too early.

I hope so. But I remember with Bayonetta 2, it was first announced at Nintendo's Wii U event in September 2012 and it took until September 2014 for it to finally release. I hope that won't be the case this time, though, because Switch is supposed to be much easier to develop for.

The Wii U, if I remember right, was kind of a pain to develop for to where the Switch is supposed to be super easy because more devs are familiar with its processor's architecture.

Aside from the major releases next year, I am anticipating more news about Payday 3. I think it's going to be a major hit come 2019 or so.

I'd rather it be released on Switch and look like the first Redemption so I could actually play it. It's nearly impossible to get more than an hour or two of TV time for anything not appropriate for the kiddos. Switch makes that easy.

I'll have to check out the ability for a way out to only need one copy thats a cool premise.

I am looking forward to most of those as well.

I'm not lookinG for last of us 2 til 19..but who knows maybe they will blow us away at e3 with it being closer than revealed and say it'll be out soon. I could see them holding that one close and dropping it as soon as one of the other guys does something biG.

The big one there of course that sadly we will be waiting awhile for is cp2077 :/ they are still hiring on that project. We may be lucky to have that in 2019..but I question the holy prophets CDPR not...they will bless us the chosen when it's ready.

Yeah, I fear a 2019 release, but oh well, as long as it's amazing, I'll wait. Too much to play and too little time/money anyway. 2018 looks to be way better than 2017 for PS4 (IMO) if most of these games pan out.

they will have to be really good, ive got 2017 in my top 3 years of gaming all time. to beat persona 5, my number one jrpg ever and number 2 game of all time, nier automata, horizon, tales of berseria was underappreciated, a lot of people liked nioh,..

2015
2017
1997


but as I think about ps4 has some potential juggernauts next year, god of war, ace combat 7, kingdom come deliverance, spider man, valkyria 4, ni no kuni 2, dragon quest 11, cold steel, far cry 5, RDR2, some of those are multiplats ya, but for the system it could indeed be a huge year, it could top 2017 overall if these are what they should be, even if I don't end up liking any single game more than p5.

Ori is probably what I'm most looking forward to because of how good Ori 1 was. Who knows how long the dev time will be though because this is the same studio that delayed their game an entire year just to refine the controls, so....

Last of us 2 over half done? Maybe 2018 late isn't out of the question.. but we will see.....

Apparently no one is safe and any character might die and the story will be told in a way that "may not resonate with fans of the first game.."

I was hoping this was going to be a game more inline with the sid meiers pirates type of game but I'm still hopeful. Just not as much as I once was. I rated it among my most anticipated but also the most likely to disappoint me, maybe not because it's bad but because it's not the pirate game I have been waiting on for a long time. I think with the right people actually trying to do it right it will be fun, but it doesn't seem like the kind of thing that will draw good luck with randoms
