PS3T's Top 20 Most Anticipated Titles of 2013
PS3T's Top 20 Most Anticipated Titles of 2013

Like we do every year - just before the Q1 rush begins and starts to overwhelm our senses - we like to sit back and look forward to the year ahead.

Rather than throw ream after ream of words at you about what we're looking forward to, we find the best way to represent that is through a visual fiesta of sorts. You know, take our top 20 most anticipated games, get their trailers, cut them down, layer in an excellent tune and wham, delight you for a good 5 plus minutes. After doing that with 2013, we know it's going to be a fine year... and that's before the inevitable console announcements and subsequent game announcements come!

The usual rules apply: announced games only and only those with game trailers qualify - which was effectively all of them this year... for once. Oh, and of course, DmC is in there too and we already know that's great... so that's kind of cheating. But hey, we make up the rules, so we can do that, you see? And yeah, some of these aren't confirmed for 2013 yet or some may slip into 2014, but we used our best judgement... mixed with a smidgen of hope.

We'll shut up now and let the video do the talking! Enjoy... or else!

Haven't heard of some of these games, look pretty good if I'm honest :D

Out of this list, I'll probably be getting GTA 5, and Grid 2 :)

Great choice of music aswell :D

Well that was cool. I saw some that I was already interested in and some that I just might have to take a closer look at. It should be a good year though because going by that video I there could be more then two games worth buying this year.

Maybe Bioshock Infinte. I'm definitely gonna buy Aliens: Colonial Marines and of course GTA V.

Remmember me looks interesting I love Cyberpunk.

Crysis 3 is actually a prequel to 2 and a sequel to 1 :S. I think this could have been a stand alone expansion pack.

The rest doesn't interest me so match. Dead Space 3 is gonna have coop and EA even sad that it's gonna be less scary also lot's of microtransitions.

Last of Us looks basically like Uncharted but in a apocalyptic world.

Star Wars 1313, the only Star Wars game I want to see is Battlefront 3.

Beyond: Two Souls looks like Heavy Rain witch is good but, it really wasn't worth 60 a 70 bucks.

Not a God of War guy and I don't like racing games except Burnout.

Watching Dogs is basically hacking with your cellphone + sandbox.

Castlevania:Lords of Shadow was annoying with all the QTE so pass the sequel.

I don't like fighting games except Mortal Kombat so no Injustice for me.

Splinter Cell first needs to proof it self to be a STEALTH game also the voice actor for Sam got replaced :S.

I don't like Metal Gear series.

Haven't even finished Demon Souls yet so no Dark Souls 2.

Tomb Raider mmmmm that games seems interesting.

Anyway I know what I am gonna buy this year.
For me it will be another movie year.

You can thumb down me all you like but this is just my opinion.

I sure hope I can get a new PS3 before April. I NEED to play Bioshock Infinite. And I'm going to need to finish it before May comes around with The Last of Us.

Everything else can wait unless its Dark Souls II, Watch Dogs or The Last Guardian, and everyone knows the latter isn't going to be out for a few years yet.

I'll probably grab Dead Space 3, Remember Me, God of War Ascension and Aliens: Colonial Marines if they turn out good, but they won't be immediate purchases. Same goes with the new Castlevania although I only recently bought the first one and haven't been able to play it yet, so that's on the fence until I know whether it'll actually be worth my attention. Revengeance is a possible too.

Maybe GTAV because SHARKS. I didn't care for GTAIV though (or San Andreas, for that matter) but if its like Vice City then I'll probably pick it up.

Already had some on game list .. looking fwd to GOW, Tomb Raider, Remember Me and others.

Star Wars 1313 looks ok, looks like another shooter, I wanna see how they put in Jedi powers into the game. In the movie you can knock down (note I didn't say knock out) multiple enemies close to each other.

Prob will have power rank point system too.

Oh well ... 30 days till GameFly sends Tomb Raider :D

I'm really only looking forward to five or six games in particular since I have yet to play through a majority of great games from 2011 and 2012, plus I'm taking time away from new titles to Platinum the ones I already have.
Here are the games I'm looking forward to (in no particular order; rumored 2013 releases marked with an *)
1. The Last of Us
*2. Persona 5
3. Remember Me
4. Watch Dogs
5. Injustice: Gods Among Us
*6. Kingdom Hearts 1.5 - Re:Remix and/or Kingdom Hearts III

Tales of Xillia. 'nuff said.

Most of my most anticipated games are for Wii, Wii U & 3DS unfortunately. But for PS3 & multiplatform: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, Last of Us, Tomb Raider, Beyond: Two Souls, Saints Row 4, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, MGR, MGS: Ground Zeros, Lightning Returns, Bioshock Infinite, Skylanders Swap Force ( though I still haven't picked up Giants yet...), South Park: The Stick of Truth and the hopefully finally about done FF Versus XIII.

@36 I loved Vice City, but feel kind of meh about the other GTA games. I just can't get into the stories in the other games...the 80's music in Vice City also kind of made it work for me better than the mostly rap & hip-hop OST of San Andreas...

@1 If you say you haven't heard of some of these games listed, I've got one question for you, "What rock have you been living under for the last 6+ months?". These games are a lot of the Elite titles coming out & have been talked about numerous times.

Me. My most wanted are Remember Me (Have had it pre-ordered since September), The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, & if I get a PS4 this year, Star Wars 1313 & Watch Dogs.

From what I seen from here I can honestly say the ones I am most anticipated for are:
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 (The first one blew me away, the story was amazing in my opinion)

Injustice: Gods Among Us (A Super Hero Fighting game just is too hard to say no to.)

Bioshock Infinite (Never was a real fan but this one looks interesting.)

South Park: TSoT (I'm a major sucker for South Park, and I can't help it, this game looks very, very interesting.)

Tomb Raider (Once again, never a fan, but when I seen how Lara looked, I was really liking the change not just to her face, but to her attitude and hair, for some reason it looks totally revamped and I am liking it.)

Last of Us (I can't say much about it, but I can say I'm curious what is in store for this one.)

Beyond: Two Souls (With the recent cast addition how can I say no.)

GTA V (GTA pretty much speaks for itself, solid series!)

Watch Dogs (I heard about this one so long ago I thought the idea was completely scrapped and never to be picked up like most titles I was anticipated for, but when I heard about it coming out, I knew right away I was picking this baby up when it gets released, so bad I want it I have already reserved and paid it off via Best Buy.)

@49 Trust me Tomb Raider is amazing, i went to a trial night at my local GAME store where we could play the opening level of the game and it has potential to be an amazing game from what i played.

loved the Dead Space and DMC series so i had to get those on release but i was surprised with the Metal Gear because i'm useless at stealth games and more run and gun, but after seeing reviews and gameplay i went for it and not disappointed.

@50 I heard TR was good as well, I'm going to be picking it up soon, I saw the reviews on here and it got kind of a low balled score, but all I do is take away the achievement/trophy score and define right there.

Dead Space I honestly have yet to try I still want to being a Capcom fan even if it's less horror more action now, as for DMC I can't bring myself to liking it, I just feel the Black Hair did it for me to not be able to believe it's Dante, it almost felt like I was playing 4 again, I just have a bad feeling in my stomach when I think of playing it more than the demo.

Metal Gear on another note, that is why I liked the series so much, it was all stealth, and it felt so amazing, and the moment your caught *shake* it was such a great feeling, but with fans cry out to play as Raiden because of his new cyborg look they got it, I personally liked him more in SoL, even if he was just a beginner, maybe it's just the hack and slash issue with this one but I can't really get into it.

2013 is a promising year in gaming for sure! I'm have my mind set on Metro Last Light, Dark Souls 2 and I'm still reading up on Tomb Raider. Also, Watch Dogs is like a secret futuristic GTA too me (which is a good thing!).

@56 A great game. At its basics its a third person fantasy adventure. With traits of GoW, DMC and shadow of the colossus mixed in. It has some top class actors involved too. Patrick Stewart (X-men, Star Trek, American Dad). Robert Carlisle (the beach, 28 days later, 51st state) and Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter).

One of my most anticipated titles was Army of Two; devils cartel... which I am now playing and absolutely love. This game was built for all the things I want and like in games. I cant wait to PLAT. Even if it takes 5 playthrough. :) BEST GAME EVER FOR ME.

God of War Ascension was a huge let down... poor sound, freezing screens, panning out too far, changing trophy names, lowering difficulty for babies... and so on.

Last of Us, Beyond Souls are both on pre-order.... Cant wait for next month and Q4
