2007's Most Anticipated Games: Debate Anyone?

I wanted to start an intelligent discussion on what games people are keeping an eye on and why. Here's a short list of some games I can't wait for:

  • Crysis - Looks to be one of the most gorgeous FPS games coming out. Some of the gameplay ideas are pretty sweet too.
  • Unreal Tournament 2007 - check this out: http://www.gametrailers.com/umwatcher.php?id=9091
  • Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl - I want to play this because it seems like an excellent way to combine several different genres of games. FPS, RPG, Strategy-non civ-builder are just a few things this game seems to offer.
  • Spore - I can see myself playing this game RELIGOUSLY. Cartoony graphix, sure, but that engine seems to fit the game more so then, say, the Crysis engine that is designed to show off only a couple of environments.  For more: http://www.spore.com/about.php
  • Savage 2 - Looks like they took the original and made some graphic advances with it...but that's about it. There's nothing wrong with not screwing with something good.
  • LOTR Online (might actually stick with this MMORPG) - Mainly because I'm an LOTR freak, but also because this has been in the works for so long, it's bound to be impressive...at least, it BETTER be!

Anyone else have some games they're waiting for?

yet another

Another game that looks pretty sweet is Bioshock.  A cool looking, strategic FPS.  The trailers over at www.gametrailers.com look pretty nice.

Alan Wake

I'm looking forward to Alan Wake.  The DX 10 graphics are simply stunning.  Check out the screen shots: http://www.alanwake.com/

Hard to tell...

The graphix DO look pretty stunning, but, then again, so did Myst and Riven for thier time.  I hope the game isn't just eye candy and a boring gameplay feel.  Sometimes those "mystery/puzzle solver" games can be a snore.  Gorgeous, yes.  It's definately one to keep an eye on.

For those who miss Total Annihilation:

Ladies and Gentlemen...

After rigorously testing the Supreme Commander demo, I must say that I'm pretty sure this could be the best RTS game ever created.  And I don't say stuff like that usually.  They thought of just about everything to make this a winner.  This could take the place of Age 2 for the most played RTS at our LAN parties! (Poor Tony, we'll give you a few chances at this game every now and again...:) )

On Backorder

I got my Supreme Commander and HL2 Deluxe on pre-order at Amazon!  Should be just a few weeks until they arrive.

When?

Hey Gordo, when does Supreme Commander hit the shelves? Do you know exactly what date Amazon is supposed to ship your copy?

OMMFG! (Oh My Mother-Fucking God!)

You're actually BUYING retail PC games, Gordo?  And I'll have to pre-order that Supreme Commander too very soon!

SWEET!

Wow.... that's all I can say.  It's Total A on steroids!  Everyone must buy this game so we can play it at the LAN!  Hopefully it will have the multiplayer spawn like Total A did so that we don't have to buy a copy for each computer.   yeah right, who am I kidding. :)  Oh well, buy it anyway!  I'm sure it will be worth it.
