GamerSushi Asks: Most Anticipated in 2009?

Well, as far as I know, we’re past most if not all of the major releases for this gaming season of 2008, and boy was it a memorable one. Left 4 Dead, Fallout 3, Prince of Persia, Bioshock, Little Big Planet, CoD: World at War, Mirror’s Edge, Saint’s Row 2, Gears of War 2, and then some, and still counting. While these games will keep us busy for a while, there is still more on the horizon…

So, that begs the question- now that these games are out, what are your most anticipated titles of next year? Anything on your radar that you’re just dying to play? It seems to me that there’s not quite as much to look forward to next year, though I’m interested in LotR: Conquest, Mass Effect 2, Final Fantasy XIII, Diablo III, Dragon Age and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. However, not all of those are even confirmed yet.

What are you looking forward to still? Answer away!

  1. Well, since I’m a PC guy, Mirror’s Edge only hits PC in January sometime, so =). Also, that Source Half-Life 1 looks fantastic ( i know its just a mod).

    If Deus Ex 3 gets any kind of 09 confirmation I’ll undoubtedly shat my pants.

  2. Dawn of War 2! I’ve got a massive gamer…arousal for that game. An upgraded Company of Heroes engine with Space Marines and Tyranids? Win.

    I’m also excited for Halo 3: ODST, and the Fallout 3 DLC. If Mass Effect 2 and Modern Warfare 2 drops next year, that would be sweet as well.

  3. I’m looking forward to LOTR Conquest, the GECK (Fallout 3’s SDK), Dawn of War 2 – the 1st one rocked – and also Demigod and Empire: Total War.
    And Black Mesa Source does look awesome – but I’ve been waiting for over a year for that one, and with no release date I’m holding my breath on that being ’09.
    Runner-ups are COD Modern Warfare 2 and Diablo 3, as well as a prayer for Sam & Max Season 3. I’m surprised that SCII didn’t make the lists – though that’s one that I’m skipping, too.

  4. Obviously, a couple of reveal trailers aren’t much to go on, and there really aren’t many titles to talk about anyway. But still, let not those reveal trailers go to waste. It’s time for a list!!

    Halo 3 Recon I MEAN ODST looks very cool as I’ve said before. And yes I enjoy referencing myself. Deal with it! lol

    Fallout 3 DLC would only add to the crazy amount of awesomocity that oozes out of the disc like radiation. Um, or maybe that’s a bad thing…

    All I want for Christmas is for Mass Effect 2 to not suck and if possible be amazing.

    Modern Warfare 2 looks pretty cool, but I just hope we see some variation and that it excels CoD4. I’d hate to see Infinity Ward pull a Treyarch (aka make a bad game).

    LotR Conquest looks cool so long as it’s not an MMO. And I’m guessing it is so never mind.

    That’s about it for me.

  5. Resi 5 and Killzone 2. Loved the first despite what others thought. Throwing a knife into someones neck for and instant kill never got boring. NEVER.

  6. Cossack, I have to tell you to start using Wikipedia or Google,lol.

    LOTR Conquest is just like Star Wars Battlefront. Same dev and everything, I think. Not a MMO, so no worries there.

    FFXIII and Dragon Age are big events for me, as is God of War III. Can’t wait!

  7. Wtf at the ridiculous amount of COD being made. I mean, pretty much one per year? o.0 lol. Still looking forward to MW2 though. FF XIII, RE5, and maybe even the JRPG White Knight….

  8. I can’t wait for Mass Effect 2. Best storytelling in videogames. You guys should really do an article on that games story, and the impact it has had and how the way it tells a story will influence gaming.

  9. There are tons of games I am looking forward to for next year. I am curios how they shape up, of course most will not fill their potential, but still.

    Here are the games I hope to be released next year, that should be interessting and are worth waiting for:

    Street Figher IV
    Puzzle Quest: Galactrix
    Bionic Commando
    I am alive
    Alan Wake
    Brutal Legends
    Diablo 3
    StarCraft 2
    Halo: ODST

    Mass Effect 2 (are you sure thats comming next year?)
    Assassins Creed 2 (probably coming 2010)
    …and there are for sure some games we don’t know yet about. It’s going to be an exciting year!

  10. I am looking forward to 2 games that should be released in 2K9 (I hope) Diablo 3 and Wolfenstein. I am playing L4D right now and loving it, and still have not broken the shrinkwrap on COD5. So I will be busy for the next few months at least While I wait.
