Default 15 Games You All Will Probably Get (in 2013)

In order, based on my preference. I mostly enjoy a good first-person shooter (preferably that involves realism) and a great action-adventure game. I am saddened that there is still no news on the next Uncharted game, but 2013 is by far the most intriguing year perhaps in gaming history. Plus they're announcing PS4 & 720 on E3 in Spring, so get excited gamers. Anyways don't be upset that I won't be listing games like Generals, Crysis 3 or any role-playing games. I just naming 15 games that I feel will blow our minds and that fit my interest as a gamer.

These games are in order...

15. Agent

Company: Rockstar
Release Date: Possibly 2013 (Q4)

Agent is an espionage action game exclusive for the PlayStation 3. It takes place during the height of the Cold War at the end of the 1970s, taking players on a paranoid journey around the world of political assassination, espionage, and counter-intelligence. Currently, there is no other detailed information about the game.

No Videos/Trailers Available Yet
This game sounds too promising not to make the list and it's Rockstar people! Hopeful for a late 2013 release...

14. Remember Me

Company: Dontnod
Release Date: May, 2013

The game is set in Paris. The player takes control of Nilin, an elite memory hunter who is not only incredibly athletic and trained in martial arts, but also has the special ability to access and modify people's memories. When her own memory is erased, Nilin begins her journey to reclaim her identity and discover how she can change the world.

13. Metro: Last Light

Company: THQ
Release Date: March, 2013

It is the year 2034. Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within.

Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above. But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever. As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour...

Facing deadlier evolved enemies and the brutal elements, Isaac can choose to team up, not only for his own survival, but for that of mankind’s.

10. BioShock Infinite

Welcome to the city of Columbia. Floating amongst the clouds, cruising far above sea level, this is a place unlike any you've ever seen. Please enjoy your voyage...

The third game in the popular Bioshock series, BioShock Infinite breaks away from the underwater setting of the first two games to take players into a floating city held aloft by dirigibles. The game is set in 1912. You play as Booker DeWitt, a disgraced former private detective who's picked up a new case. Your goal is to find Elizabeth, a young woman who's gone missing and return her unharmed. The only problem is that she's being kept on this flying city. Columbia was once a symbol of America's success as a nation, floating around the world as a traveling World's Fair, a marvel of human innovation. But strange things have happened since Columbia's unveiling in 1900, and now the city has disappeared into the clouds. DeWitt knows how to find it, but over the years stories have been told about Columbia having unlawful heavy armament and deranged citizenry. Do not expect this to be a pleasure cruise.

Potential to challenge GTA 5, in my honest opinion. Just not enough info yet...

6. Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider delivers an intense and gritty story of the origins of Lara Croft and her ascent from frightened young woman to hardened survivor, armed with only raw instincts and the physical ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance. Superb physics-based gameplay is paired with a heart-pounding narrative in Lara's most personal, character-defining adventure to date.

Gameplay Video

Could potentially challenge the Uncharted series for best graphics, best adventure game out there...

Is AGENT, "The Agency" that people at Sony were so ecstatic about at E3 a couple years ago?

I have a feeling that I will probably get GT3 and Tomb Raider. I've been following Tomb Raider and I really want that franchise to be revived properly. One of those games that used to scare the shit out of me as a kid.

I'm interested in AGENT though.

Good list and write- up. Cheers.

No completely different project.
Agent has a website with no trailer, game footage or even pictures. Rockstar is their developer and it has a premise; that's enough for me to get excited.

They have been working on this title since 2007; it was announced on E3 in 2009 and still no follow-up. But look at GTA 5 and how hush-hush Rockstar were about leaking any info about the title.

They like to keep things quiet, I expect this game to be insane.

The new Rainbow Six game won't be released any time soon.

Anyway, the only sure buys are probably GTA 5, Watch Dogs, and Metro Last Light.

Excellent write ups.

For me, I grew up on Tomb Raider, and if I hear it's been done well, that would be great.

Beyond Two Souls: Frankly it's been a year since I played Quantic's Heavy Rain, and I still don't know if I liked it or not. I'd check out reviews on this. I'd possibly buy it if it rated well enough.

I've really enjoyed the Dead Space series so far. But I gotta say they do get to feeling a little monotonous. I'd buy this though unless I heard something terrible.

I heard really good things about that first Metro game. It sounds like something I'd like, but I gotta draw the line somewhere, and with the time I have to play, I usually cut it off at stuff that isn't AAA release type titles. It's unfortunate, but there's only so much I can do.

This is the first I've heard of Remember Me, and frankly it sounds pretty cool. But much like Metro, I just don't know if I have the time to commit to game by a company I've never played anything with, not Capcom, but Dontnod. But I'd certainly keep tabs on the reviews and see where they took me. The gameplay video looks awesome, and very much like it borrowed pretty heavily from the Assassin's Creed mechanics, so this would get a very strong maybe from me.

Agent, I'd say the same thing as most people ... it's Rockstar. I'd give it a shot for sure. But I was horribly disappointed with LA Noir, but whatever, I trust them enough to roll my 60 bucks worth of dice. I also don't think it's coming out anytime soon.

Grand Theft Auto V ... I'm already Pre-Ordered.

The Last of Us I'm also already pre-ordered on. I can't think any more highly of a video game than I do of the Uncharted Series, so once I found out these guys were doing this, it was an automatic for me. But then finding out it was a post apocolytic open world survival game ... I mean that's why I'm considering buying Metro, and that's a company I don't know and it's first person, so this was a gimme. I was under the impression it was coming out this year though. Frankly I'm fine if it doesn't, I'm still finishing ACIII, and I have Hitman on the shelf.

And Finally, Watchdogs. Much like above, I hold Assassin's Creed in extremely high regard, and with Ubisoft behind this, plus the 20 minute gameplay video I've watched, this is an automatic preorder for me too.

A lot of interesting games, not enough time. I'm definitely getting Splinter Cell: Blacklist, it seems like the story is finally going away from the whiny Sam Fisher of Double Agent and Conviction to taking-care-of-business Sam Fisher. I hope you're able to play much more stealthily than those two as well.

Watchdogs and The Last of Us were on my list as well but I hadn't heard of others that piqued my interest like Agent, Remember Me, and Beyond: Two Souls. I'll eventually play the new MGS as well but it won't be a priority.

Good thread.

2k14 and GTA.

Anything else will probably end up being an impulse purchase (like 80% of my collection is right now).

Bioshock Inifinite and The Last Of Us. The rest are maybes. And I have absolutely zero interest in GTA5. I didn't like GTA4 at all. Hell I'll be buying Lego City Undercover over it.
