Video games to look foward to in 2011

Sorry for not making a post yesterday guys. I decided to take the day off to relax with my wife (since I hate valentines day so you could say yesterday made up for it) but I'm back baby to entertain you guys with a daily dose of  __________enter what this blog gives you a daily dose of_____________!!!

So today lets talk video games. Oh how we love our video games huh guys? Well, in my opinion, most video games suck ass now. There are only 2-3 good titles coming out every year and the rest is just bullcrap! I remember when I had my PS1 and PS2 (golden age of video gaming) and awesome video games were popping out of nowhere left and right! It was overwhelmingly awesome!

But this year seems like it might be a year of change. This year might bring enlightenment to developer's minds and they'll, for once, try to be original. I don't know if you guys know this but originality = awesomeness. I haven't heard of any original games coming out this year (just Ilomilo but that was an arcade game but a really good game nonetheless) but these are the games I'm looking foward to that were original when they first came out.


When I saw the teaser in last year Spike TV's Video Game Awards (this was the only good part of those 2 hours of FAIL) I almost started crying! Seriously, I think a tear or two came out! I played the shit out of Oblivion and now with this one they're remaking the game engine and the whole game will (hopefully) look ten times better. Oblivion is known for it's breathing, realistic world, so imagine how Skyrim is going to look like! And also, there's gonna be dragons and a new language was made for this game! That's how EPIC it's going to be!





I saw gameplay of this game in E3 2010 and it was unbelievable. Ghost Recon is going even more in the future in this game and it looks awesome. For me Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 was the most overlooked war game when it came out. People were out playing Call Of Duty 4 because they just couldn't handle the difficulty of multiplayer or they were just single-minded video gamers (posers). I just hope Ubi Soft didn't decide to make this game more mainstream (COD like) because I'd be pissed. Why trade something original with something that sucks ass? Oh yea, for the money *shaking my head*




I know it may not come out this year but I definitely am excited to play as ninja Raiden and seeing his story between MGS 2 and MGS 4. From the little that I know, it's enought to just jizz my pants. Here's some gameplay of it that they showed on E3...


And of course there are some honorable mentions like Marvel vs Capcom 3 (cousin's getting it today from our local game store), Crysis 2, Dead Space 2, and I guess that's it. But I'm sure there's a lot of other games coming out this year that might be good also.

Tell me what are your most anticipated video games for this year in the comments below and stay tuned my fellow bloggers!

  8. When you look at the similarities between video games and most of everything else we produce and consume, they're made to be shitty and replaced by the next best thing quickly. Not many games are made to be fun for a long time and to be supported and updated for years.

  37. Man I hope Ghost Recon is as good as you hope it's gonna be, because in my opinion, all of the past Ghost Recon sucked.

    Then again, the only military games I've liked are Medal of Honor Frontline and Splinter Cell Chaos Theory.
