Default I think gaming is pretty much dead for me...

Below is a list of games that are coming out, including the holiday blockbusters, and there's not one game on that list that I am really excited about, there must be something wrong with me or I'm getting old I guess... everything feels rehashed or reused or consolized...

I kind of would like to try Mafia 2 (although it's a sequel that just looks a bit better)... and L4D2, but this really feels like it should be an expansion pack not a whole new game... then there's Project Offset that didn't even make the list, yet that's probably the most intersting game out there, to me that is...

Can't say I've ever been this dis-interested in new game releases... ever... what's up with that...

Vanz

ps. There's a few I don't know anything about, I hope those pack some punch...

Dunno, I'm super excited for a bunch of games coming this Fall and early 2010... many of the games on that list are blockbusters for me.

It's all subjective though, man.

I suggest you rediscover some of your old games. You might be surprised how much fun they will be. I'm not surprised at your disinterest in the latest games though. Publishers are hooked on Sequels, Sports, Licenses. Yawn. After a while all the candy tastes the same.

Why is Diablo 3 not on the 2010 list?

My list looks identical to Cap's, for the most part... at least 5 or 6 of those have the hair on the back of my neck standing up.

Hell yeah. That should be awesome. That pretty much heads my list of upcoming games.

Well I understand what he means by consolised. Basically a lot of the depth has been removed from the game in order to reach a more casual audience, and it makes the game a bit less interesting to your more traditional gamer.

This is invariably what happens with console games. The controls only offer a fraction of what a PC can do so the game has to be made more simple. Whether this is good or bad is ultimately up to the player to decide.
