Most Anticipated Games of 2017

Post by TripOpt55 on Sun Jan 08, 2017 4:28 am

We usually do this at the beginning of the year. Which games are you most excited for in 2017? Feel free to go longer than five.

1. Mass Effect Andromeda- On the surface level this looks like what I wanted from the very start from the series. Mass Effect 1's planet exploration with more polish than 3. I'm hoping it delivers even though there's not much to go off yet.
2. Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy- Can't wait to see these games updated with new tech.
3. Sonic Mania- This is the first Sonic game that I think can actually capture the feel of the Genesis games. Hoping for the best.
4. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild- Not sold on crafting or breakable weapons, but everything else sounds fantastic. Gonna be epic
5. Mario Switch- It's 3D Mario. I love 3D Mario
The rest (in no particular order)
Scalebound- Looks like a neat take on action games. Hoping for the best.
Cuphead- Game needs to come out already. Was sold the second I saw the art style.
South Park- Last one was really good and I love superheroes a hell of a lot more than fantasy.
Nier Autonoma- I'm optimistic on this one, but have my reservations
Persona 5- Probably will wait on this for when I have time, but looks good.
FFXII HD- Been waiting for this one to hit modern tech for a while. Looks like the best FF from a gameplay standpoint.
Yooka-Laylee- A 3D platformer by the Banjo guys. Hoping it works.

I'm so pumped for games in 2017

1. Persona 5 - I feel more confident in this than anything else at this point. Looks like it's doing all the right things to advance menu-based JRPGs

2. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - I'm still a bit worried that it may be too similar to other open world games, but I love exploring worlds with a good sense of scale and it definitely seems to do that better than the vast majority.

3. Prey - It's not the sequel I would've asked for but Bethesda shooters have been strong and you can turn into a cup.

4. Mario Switch - 3D World was great but I adored Galaxy as a latecomer. I hope this can capture the same magic

5. Mass Effect Andromeda - This series has been missing that one perfect game IMO and I hope this one will be it thanks to the return of exploration.

HM: Horizon: Zero Dawn - I love the look of the world and characters. I'm just a little sceptical given guerilla's track record and some Ubisoft-y elements that seemed to be in the last trailer I saw

I'm in the same boat as you with Horizon Aja, but more cynical of if they can pull it off. I seem to hate Killzone campaigns more than the average person and that Shadow Fall going with more open levels did them no favors has me wondering if they understand how to pull a game like this off. I really want it to be good, but can't get too excited over it.

Here are mine:

1. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy - Didn't expect to be getting a new Naughty Dog game this year and I'm super excited about it. Pretty much the direction I was hoping they'd go with the DLC from a story standpoint and the fact that it expanded to a larger standalone game is cool. Hoping for more action than 4. The demo didn't show much, but I liked the atmosphere. Curious what driving sections they'll do with Chloe as the lead.

2. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Console Zelda releases are so far apart they feel really special and always have me hyped. The fact it may be the game I'm playing at launch on Switch adds to the excitement. I like what I've seen from the game so far a lot. A true new overworld to explore is what I have been craving for years and this looks like it will scratch that itch in a big way. Hope it delivers on dungeons too though.

3. Horizon: Zero Dawn - I can understand the skepticism about this in here, but I really like what I have seen of it so far. The combat looks awesome and totally my kind of thing. The world and character designs look great too. If nothing else I'll be able to explore a cool-looking world hunting robot dinosaurs with a really sweet combat system.

4. Super Mario Switch - Not much to go on, but I love Mario and the rarity of good 3D platformers these days makes them more special.

5. Gravity Rush 2 - Really enjoyed the first one. One of the most fun ways to get around in an open-world. This looks to be a game that really builds and improves on its predecessor.

Let's see, some other stuff I'm excited about.

Other probable 2017 stuff: Yooka-Laylee and Scalebound.

It feels like we've been waiting forever, but I'll gladly play them if they release this year: Rime, Cuphead and A Hat in Time.

Feels like it could actually be announced and released this year: New Tomb Raider and Wolfenstein. TR would obviously be high on my list if it is coming this year.

Stuff that I'm assuming is coming in 2018 and beyond: The Last of Us Part II, God of War, Spider-man, Beyond Good & Evil 2, Cyberpunk 2077, and Days Gone.

Oh damn, forgot about Spidey. I actually think that's a shoe in for 2017 since they'll want to release it alongside the movie, whether in theaters or for the Blu-Ray if it needs more time. Hope it's not rushed.

Oh I forgot about Spider-man as well. That should at least be an honorable mention because Spidey + Insomniac is a dream come true for 10 year old me

I was on the fence about Spider-man being this year or not, but I figured if it wasn't on Casey's list he was also thinking 2018! Hopefully it does come out this year then. I didn't realize the movie was so soon either.

Anything you guys are hoping is announced this year outside of usual pipe dream stuff?

Re: Most Anticipated Games of 2017

I'd like to see Bethesda announce a new RPG that isn't Elder Scrolls or Fallout. My pipe dream for that would be Adventure Time, but really I'd like to see what they could do with something outside Tolkein fantasy and post-apocalypse. Something like Chinese inspired fantasy world or steampunk, but something with new and interesting lore.

As strange as this sounds, I wouldn't mind The Order getting a sequel if they can salvage it this time. It was a neat idea and if werewolves and vampires can be the focus, I think it could be a good game.

We know there will be a new Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed, so I hope the former steers away from sci-fy, maybe give us The Korean War or something. As for the latter, hoping for revamped mechanics with actual platforming in an ancient Aztec City. Make the story where Cortez is conquering everything and you need to keep some secrets away from him. Also on the topic of Ubisoft, a new Rayman.

Another Telltale announcement is a safe bet too, so here's some thing I'd like to see them take on: Ghostbusters, Rick and Morty, Archer, Beavis and Butthead, iZombie, Star Wars, Mass Effect

I'd also like to see From Software take a break this year, but announce something for 2018. Bloodborne 2 or a new sci-fy IP.

I want Nintendo to properly revive one of their franchises.

Also I feel like it's time for another Wolfenstein like you mentioned, Trip.

Bethesda had a subtle tease of it in their E3 presentation last year. There was a list of titles on an old computer screen with New Colossus at the end of the Wolfenstein ones. So I'm thinking they will probably announce that this year.

I'm hoping we see the next Sucker Punch (I've heard it is a new IP) and Retro games. I'd love Sly 5 to be announced as well, but I'm not too hopeful of that one anymore.

I am curious about the new Assassin's Creed since they took a year off. I think the rumors are it is in Egypt which I think would be cool. I'm interested in what kind of changes they would make.

Scalebound has been cancelled. Cross that one off the list I guess.

Damn, I was really looking forward to that one. Looked like it was pretty close to finished too, wonder why it happened.

1. Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Enough said.
2. Ni no Kuni 2 - assuming it does come out this year
3. Final Fantasy XII HD: The Zodiac Age. Other than 7, 12 is my favorite of the series. Look forward to playing it on PS4.
4. Persona 5 - looks like a world class production.
5. Valkyria Revolution - some trepidation about the new direction the series is taking, but the game looks good.
6. Tales of Berseria - One reason my bank account is going to be hurting in a couple of weeks.
7. Yakuza 0 - the other reason my bank account is going to be hurting in a couple of weeks.
8. NieR: Automata. Definitely excited to see a Platinum RPG.
9. Super Mario Switch - As long as it's a solid entry into the Mario series, I'm sold.
10. Gravity Rush 2 - looks good, enjoyed the first one on PS4.

Honorable mentions: Tokyo Xanadu - more RPG goodness for Vita
Cuphead - neat art style. Will probably get it on PC since I never bothered to get a Xbox One.
Dragon Quest VIII - another of my favorites gets remade. Just wish for a HD remaster on PS4, but I enjoyed VII on 3DS, and this game still rocks.
Cosmic Star Heroine - hopefully this one finally comes out.
EDIT: Nights of Azure 2. The first game was a fun action RPG from Gust with nice artwork. This game will be good if it just manages to be more of that.

I'm surprised Dragon Quest XI isn't on your list San

Is it for sure coming out next year? It was a game I didn't even think had a chance in 2017. I've only ever seen one thing about the game.

There's no confirmed US release date yet, or it would be right up there with Zelda and Ni no Kuni 2.

Looking at this subject again, there isn't much at all I'm looking forward to on Xbox One. With Scalebound gone, I guess it is just Cuphead. And this isn't even because I'm someone with a gaming PC that would make the Xbox One obsolete. I think the Xbox "console exclusives" coming up just look weak. I guess there is Crackdown 3, Rare's pirate MMO thing... not sure what else.

There's also Halo Wars 2, but yeah the XB1 lineup blows right now.

Hopefully the rumors of that Ori sequel pan out. That'd be something else for me to get on there.

Add Nier: Automata to my list. Just played the demo and it was the kind of over the top action I'd expect from Platinum. Should be fun.

I really want to play Nier, but my money is going to the Switch instead. Cancelled preorders on everything coming out around that time except Mass Effect. Between that and Zelda I'll be super busy this March

1.  Ni no Kuni 2 - Man I loved that first game so much, if it is half is good I'm still in for a rousing good time.
2.  Horizon - I'm a big fan of the Killzone series, so I'm hoping Guerrilla Games next game is a fantastic one.
3.  Uncharted: Lost Legacy - I never tire of the Uncharted games.  If you're done with Drake, keep this shit up.  Do a younger Sully, something with Cutter, more Chloe.  Just keep it coming!
4.  Final Fantasy XII - Only played this Final Fantasy once, and I really liked it.  Would be really cool to play it again and not rush it, since I was in a speed race to beat it before XIII came out.  
5.  Crash - Only played bits and pieces of the original games, never beat any of them.  So I'd like to give them a go for good this time.  Hopefully they have a better save system.

Honorable mentions

1. Final Fantasy IX remaster for PS4 - With VII coming to PS4 I'm rather shocked that IX has been out for like 2 years with no mention. I desperately want to replay this game, but I'd rather do it with nicer graphics and trophies because well I like trophies all right.
2. Dragon Quest XI - I don't think it'll come out this year, but if it does I'll be one happy dude.
3. Dragon Quest X - Pretty sure they mentioned finally bringing that one to North America, but I could be wrong. This is only on the honorable mention section because I'm probably wrong.
4. Zelda Breath of the Wild - This would make my top 5 if I was getting a Switch, but I'm not, so it won't.

Tokyo Xanadu is even more anticipated now; the enhanced PS4 version is also getting localized.

I think DQX was confirmed for a NA release on the Switch Bret.
