Figured I'd make a dedicated thread to everyone's games lists since I have seen in a few other threads that people start to list what upcoming games they are planning on purchasing. I'm saying "this year" (as in til the end of December 2007) just to keep the lists from getting TOO out of hand by people adding every single game they've heard announced :lol:. This goes for any and all systems. My list is as follows.

PS2:

Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s (this franchise is the sole reason I still even own a PS2, as I HATE the 360's controller, but this 80s edition seems like the "last hurrah" for it since the 360 controller got a makeover and is said to again function like the PS2 controller, ie start/select moving back to their ps2 spot).

360:

NCAA Football 08
NASCAR 08
Madden 08
Guitar Hero 3
Rock Band
EA's Skate
Kane and Lynch: Dead Men
MotoGP 07
BioShock
Battlefield: Bad Company
Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation
Tony Hawk's Proving Ground
GTA IV
Assassin's Creed
Halo 3
Forza 2 (I know, it's out, but I still haven't grabbed it, lol)

I plan on buying all or those on, or close to, their release date. NASCAR, NCAA, Madden, Guitar Hero 3, Rock Band, GTA IV, Skate, and Halo 3 will all definately be bought the day they come out, and the others I'll pick up pretty close to their release date. I have still not bought a PS3 as there is nothing that makes me want to grab one right now (aside from BluRay DVDs). All of the multi-platform games I just get for the 360 for the sole fact that I am addicted to those stupid achievements :lol:, and there is no PS3 exclusive that has me feeling like I NEED a PS3 right now, but when I do break down and grab one I'll prolly get Resistance: Fall of Man, Formula One Championship Edition, and Ninja Gaiden Sigma.

Ok, everyone else's turn :up:

That's all too rich for my blood. I'll likely limit myself to Guitar Hero 3 (no way I miss this one), GTA IV and Assassin's Creed. All for PS3. I'll probably just rent Madden. And BluRay DVDs are great, you'll probably want to wait and get the PS3 maybe in a year when BluRay likely becomes the standard for HD movies.

360
Halo 3
GTA IV
Mass Effect
All-Pro Football 2K8

Wii
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
Super Mario Galaxy

Of course there are still so many games that we just don't know much about yet that could turn out to be planned buys or the least must rentals like:

Call of Duty 4
Rock Band
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Batallion Wars II
Contra 4 (DS)
Too Human
Kane & Lynch
etc.

I can't remember a Late Summer/Fall season so full of high profile, high potential games like this year is set to be.

No Mass Effect? This looks to have a shoo-in for RPG of the year so far. Lost Odyssey is still on my list until they officially move it (still saying they will hit for 2007). Assassin's Creed, Bioshock, GTA IV, Madden 08, Smackdown Vs Raw 2008 (whenever that hits...like the odd wrestling game). Too Human might be there if it does make it this year. Mercenaries 2 I know my cousin will get so I'll borrow that off him ;p

Crap, I forgot to add Army of Two to my 360 list, I've been watching that one since the first trailer came to the XBL Marketplace forever ago.

Also, that Drake's Fortune game looks pretty cool for PS3 whenever I pick one up.

I am going to have to disagree with you on this one.

I always rent games before I buy them. That being said, I'll give Guitar Heo, Madden 2008, Halo 3, and GTA:IV a shot.

I dunno how you guys can affors 20+ games

I second that, no online, graphics are second rate, the controls actually seem to hinder gameplay on some games. I think the Wii was an excellent try, but it seems more like a fad item to me.
anywho
G. Hero the 80's
G. Hero 3
Maybe Transformers
Madden 08
NBA 2k8

wii has wireless built in, you can downlaod games which are available for online play, they have a web browser, surfing youtube is awesome, even a webiste specificly designed for playing games online with the wiimote(like addictinggames.com), it has up to the minute news and weather listings on the wii globe...the graphics come on par with the price...and price seems to win as it has outsold the ps3 to shame. the controls you are right about aswell, wii needs to stop gunning for the big releases and play into its strengths with things like wii sports, which is incredible by yourself or playing with a bunch of friends. the wii is in a completely different sect of gaming consols as well as games, its only failure as of late, is realizing that

ok i'm done with my sales pitch

ps, does anyone thing call of duty is getting a little redunant? possibly parallel to seeing a new madden every 3 months?

Majpain
07-02-2007, 05:04 PM
It is a fad but its going to have pretty good games. I mean the only Console Id buy over the Wii is the 360. I see no reason to buy a PS3 ATM.

I still cannot get myself to buy a Wii.

I am waiting for E3 to see if Sony announces a price drop. Even though Lost Odessey does seem like a fun game.

Still I want a blu ray dvd player and having both in one seems worth it to me. Especially if they fixed the problem with wearing down system like they said they did. Hard to believe Sony when they say, well anything.

i wont switch my loyalties or anything, i'm an xbox man, i can't drop the controller when gears of war is on...but the wii is just good ol' fashion fun

I agree to that call of duty i am removing my really want list because gameplay is the exact same just different era. I was sick of call of duty gameplay after 2 thats why I never got 3 was hoping 4 would change it.

For 360:
NCAA 08
Madden 08
Guitar Hero 3
GTA IV
Halo 3
Mass Effect

Possibly Two Worlds down the line depending on the reviews.

I'm pissed all these great games are coming out all around the same time. The last game I bought was GH2 back in March and thats all I've played since. I can only listen to Rock n' Roll Hoochie Koo so many times...
