2014 was okey, 2015 was....good, not amazing. Most of the games worked and played great but the lack of new and fresh things just...made it all feel meh. So as I did in my last post I am looking to the year ahead of us and thinking THIS will be the year. Sure you got games like Crackdown 3, Gears 4 and Halo Wars 2, and those games will be good and I will play them, but I'm not feeling the hype for those games. Enter all the cool new IPs and probably some new genres.
I've been looking at the moba scene for some time now, I really like watching DOTA 2, but I got into to late and didn't want to play catch up. But now we got Overwatch, a heroshooter, that mixes moba and shooters in a big and for me amazing way. What I took away from Destiny was that I want loot and RPG element in my shooters now (probably why I couldn't stay with Halo 5 for a long time) and the crazy team gameplay and mechanics that came with the raid, Overwatch seems to have the that. Add to that games like Battleborn and Gigantic and I think we got a great year for console Heroshooter/Mobas. Speaking of Destiny, we also got The Division this year, maybe it will succeed where Destiny failed. I love the concept and I just hope The Division does it better, bigger world, more content and more customization. We don't know a lot about Sea of Thieves but it could fall into this genre, add to that pirates and Rare and this is probably my most anticipated game of the year. oh and DC universe online is coming to Xbox One.
Now I'm just gonna write names of stuff I can't wait to play this year that hasn't been mentioned yet, and I'm gonna do it list form because I'm feeling kinda cheeky.
-DLC for Ori and The Witcher
-PvZ Garden Warfare 2
-Episode 5 of Minecraft story mode
On the none Xbox front we got VR, a new Nintendo console, No Mans Sky, we are finally going to see The Last Guardian being released. 2016 is going to be amazing, I'm calling it right here and now.
