    L A Noire was fantastic. One of my favourite games.

    I saw the title, and knew Duke Nukem had to be #1.

    Sorry .... no matter how much we'd like to, we can't change history wink ... but I did try to choose a slightly more ambiguous screenshot for the Story introduction.

    I enjoyed Duke Nukem Forever, tho I wasn't really waiting for it. Also, I'm still waiting for Half Life 3.
    Yatta!

    Duke Nukem was obviously going to be #1, although Beyond Good & Evil 2 should be overtaking it if you consider that the first game was released in late 2003 and was originally penned as a trilogy. So despite no official announcement until many years later, it's been just over 13 years now us fans have been waiting for it...

    I was so disappointed in Aliens:CM-I bought a copy of OXM in 2008 with screenshots in it & a few details that were all looking promising.What we received 5 yrs later was garbage.Gearbox,involved in both this & Duke Nukem are true rip-off merchants & a one trick pony of the highest order.I'll never buy a Gearbox title new again.

    I had no idea L.A. Noire took so long to come about. Fantastic game regardless.
    When will then be now? Soon.

    I wouldn't mind another L.A. Noire type game.

    I was really going from the official announcement date until the date of release ... and even then there were a few grey areas :)

    If you dig into the history of the industry there are already some fascinating stories tucked away wink

    The next TA top five should be what IS taking so long for titles like Half Life 3, Star Wars KOTOR 3, a Stargate console game, a full length Battlestar Galactica console game, a Sims 4 console port, etc.

    The original Prey was a great game!
    I'm not certain but couldn't the new Prey have potentially made the list as well.

    I couldn't get into Too Human. Prey was alright and I guess I'm one of the few that liked Duke Nukem.

    Man...I remember KOTOR 3 had some abandoned concept art that leaked, and just seeing that art had my hype meter through the roof. Then Bioware had this huge buildup to a KOTOR announcement in 2007 and I remember scouring the internet for any morsel of info I could find. We ALL just KNEW for sure it would be KOTOR 3. Nope. Turned out to be that dumb ass PC-only MMORPG. I've never been so disappointed about something I was anticipating since.

    Duke Nukem was decent, but it looked like trash.

    L.A. Noire was worth the wait, not sure about the rest though
