Poll: What's Your Most Anticipated New Video Game Release for October 2018?

By Mark Delaney, 2 months ago
Happy Friday TA! Or at least, it's still Friday when this is being written. You won't see it until Saturday. So, uh, happy Saturday TA! Last week's poll followed up on the Telltale fallout. We were wondering how our community approaches episodic games. It turns out most of us (46%) wait for the whole season to be released before jumping into the game at all. Such an approach surely saved you some trouble with this final Walking Dead season, huh? Another 32% said you wait for a sale before even bothering to play at all, while just 14% said you like to play them one at a time as they launch individually. Maybe that piecemeal approach is part of what did in Telltale, though it sounds like it was simply one of many problematic factors, and not nearly at the top of the list.

This week we're looking at the month ahead. We're a few days in now with some marquee titles already hitting shelves and digital storefronts, but it's a loaded month for sure — the most loaded of the year, one could reasonably say. We think we know the answer but we'll ask anyway: which new release for October are you most excited about? Let us know in this week's site poll!
