2013 brought us many great anticipated titles from The Last of Us, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Ni no Kuni, GTAV, etc. Most of the anticipated games became a hit and be part of many GOTY lists from reviewers, writers, users, etc. We always look forward to games ahead of time and anticipate their release. This year is full of a lot of those kinds of titles especially with the new generation of consoles being experimented on. With the next generation of gaming under way, we take a look at 10 anticipated games coming out in 2014 that we are excited for. So many great titles released throughout the year and can't wait to play them!

 

 

1. Dark Souls II

Dark Souls return again in an upcoming sequel for the fans of tough and hardcore RPG experience. The game will feature a brand new hero, story, and new world for the gamers. When the time comes, the game will already put you in devastating moments and surprises. I enjoyed playing these kinds of game and provided a great challenge with fun bosses, enemies to encounter, and a grand adventure with dark depths and surrounding. This is a title that I look forward to that can bring in the anger and frustration out of us for a worthwhile challengeable game. With that added, the multiplayer experience should also be grand as tips and tricks shared by other players can be shared in your journey and be successful. Like the other previous games this one is an anticipated title to give your soul to.

 

2. Destiny

Halo creators Bungie and Call of Duty publishers Activision teams up to bring an upcoming brand new experience for the gamers. With FPS gameplay action with an all new cooperative mode in an open world setting in an adventure that brings in the universe filled with new features and action. I'm excited for this game as this is a brand new IP and something outside of Halo. I look forward to what they bring to the table especially with their contract with Activision.

 

3. Infamous: Second Son

Sucker Punch returns with a bang by bringing back the Infamous franchise with an all new storyline and main character in the third entry. The gameplay will be like the previous games with open world and similar abilities in the previous. You do have some new abilities with the main character such as melee weapons and the use of Dual Shock 4 controller to make the gameplay much more unique and fun by using the touchpad. I've always enjoyed the Infamous series and this was the game I anticipated the most when the PS4 was released. Wish it was a launch title, but it'll be released sooner than you think.

 

4. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

I am very excited for this title as I enjoyed the Final Fantasy XIII series. Lightning returns to action with the continuing storyline taking place 500 years after the evens of XIII-2. This also ties up loose ends and completes the trilogy. Kiky's favorite heroine has thirteen days to save the world and everyone with time running out. Game features new weapons, customization, battle abilities, and open world structure bigger than ever for sightseeing and adventure. Welcome back Lightning, we missed ya.

 

5. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

After Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, here comes the Phantom Pain. Although no release date is announced, maybe at the end of the year we can see it. I've always enjoyed the Metal Gear series and the games. Kojima is a great storyteller and a genius with these kinds of things. This entry connects the storylines with Peacewalker and Ground Zeroes to uncover more truth and mystery behind Big Boss's legacy and backstory. The gameplay is like previous games, but with more active time and challenging stealth. I love stealth games and this is a title I'm keeping my eyes solid on.

 

6. Super Smash Bros.

One of my favorite fighting games returns big time for the Wii U and 3DS. Nintendo brings back everyone's fighters and upcoming new challengers. The team behind developing the game is Namco Bandai and Project Sora. Game features brand new levels and gameplay features. Also we see the return of Mega Man making his debut and the scary Animal Crossing Villager. Watch out! These guys are gonna kick butt! Also looking forward to Game Podunk gaming nights with this game.

 

7. The Order 1886

An exclusive game for PS4 developing since 2010, the game sets into an alternate history with a Victorian-Era London with technology and mythical elements coming together. You play as a member of a team of knights like me in a long war that can change history. There wasn't much info when I first saw the game back in E3, but it has kept me interested to see what this game is all about. I like the storyline and setting of the place to serve a new IP. A very interesting anticipating title.

 

8. Thief

Haven't heard much people talk about this game, but this is a series that needed a reboot and here it is. Last year Tomb Raider had a fantastic reboot and this year it's Thief. I never played much of the older games, but I liked the stealth gameplay and features like choices that lead to different paths in the storyline. The setting is very dark inspired by steampunk and Victorian elements. Also the AI will be a bit smarter knowing the spots you hide in and will do whatever it takes to bring you down. The environment is a good way to use for the advantage of stealth and killing enemies.

 

9. Titanfall

An interesting exclusive for Microsoft that's a FPS game with usual campaign and focuses mostly in online multiplayer only games that revolves around mecha style Titans and you as the pilot. This game wasn't exciting to me at first, but the more I hear about it the interesting it sounds as it develops or creates a buzz. The gameplay sounds pretty cool with a very fast flow mechanics that has you hijack mechs, breaking things, etc. There are different classes on Titans which are Atlas, Ogre, and Stryder. You can play up to 12 players in matches in many fun modes. Prepare to be attack on titans.

 

10. Watchdogs

Another game that should have been launched last year with the next gen consoles, but got delayed is Watch Dogs. It will definitely be worth the wait as this Ubisoft title is the most interesting new IP. The game features a realistic living open world action-adventure game in Chicago that has you control the main character who can use his abilities to hack into different devices to solve cases and missions. You can hack into civilians' devices to track down data and steal money from their bank accounts. Also another part of the gameplay is to provide information on the person you're after and even using hacking abilities to mess with the surroundings to distract people. Watch Dogs is something you never see in a game and provided a brand new experience in a game. I can't wait for this anticipated release!

 

 

Are you looking forward to these anticipated games? What other anticipated games not on the list you're looking forward to as well?

Mountain Dew is a horrible sponsor. It lowers your sperm count and spikes your sugar levels.

 

Anyway I'm looking forward to the following.

 

1. Lightning Returns

2. Second Son

3. Dark Souls II

4. Thief

 

And I'm sure others will come out that I will be interested in but so far this are the ones I can think of.

Lol I knew you were going to say that about Mountain Dew. I put it as a joke. Almost added Doritoes. Kekeke

 

Anyways yeah Lightning Returns is the only game I have preordered this year and looking forward to finishing up the storyline. Yes you can't decline your favorite character. Lightning returned for you.

 

There was more I wanted to add to the list, but 10 games is enough. Didn't want to make a 15-20 anticipated games of 2014. Pretty sure there's some more people will share.

 

Thanks for reading and commenting, Kiky!

Good list! I'm definitely looking forward to Smash Bros, MGS5, and Infamous, and Watchdogs and The Order look cool too. Should be a good year for current gen and last gen consoles alike. :D

I guess at this moment. I'm looking forward to Bravely Default. I heard it's like old school Final Fantasy in ways.

Dark Souls 2 is only Xbox 360, PS3 and PC from what I see on Amazon.

 

For now. xD So many last gen games are coming to PS4/XB1 that I wouldn't be surprised if that made the jump.
