    How about a list of great looking games coming in 2011 that won't or haven't already been advertised up the arse.

    Shockingly, with the development time of games being 2+ years, when a game gets to its last year, the publishers want to start generating hype. Also, when we hit 2012, and there is a 'best games of 2011' article, you can expect to see at least half of these games, so I don't see what your problem is.

    I for one hadn't heard of Homefront, and it looks like one I'll keep tabs on. Can't wait for DE3 and ME3.

    Also, you missed out Skyrim! :jawdrop:

    Deus Ex 3 is the big one for me, been waiting years for it. Infact, it's the primary reason I'm doing a Robotics Degree...

    Of this list, only Batman and ME3 will demand a full-scale-call-in-sick-until-game-is-beaten response from me, with Portal 2 getting a honorable mention. Of course, if Valve ever gets around to working on finishing up Episode 3 of what's turned into their magnum opus it'll get a similar treatment. Seriously, guys, nearly four years to crank out what'll probably amount to ~4-5 hours of gameplay? Once Duke Nukem Forever finally comes out and leaves the vaporware top spot open you'll be meriting some serious consideration.

    Where the hell is HL2 Episode 3?

    Will we see it ever?

    The only game exciting me at the moment is TDU2. I played TDU to death and can't wait for the sequel. Other than that I have too many games already in my Steam list that I need to play before buying any new ones.

    Uncharted 3

    Deus X, Portal 2 and Batman AC would be my pick from that list.

    What about Battlefield 3? It's due out this year. Also the new Red Orchestra is looking very special.

    Annd it's January.

    The game I most want won't be out for another eleven months. Damned Bioware announcing it so early.

    I am, however, looking forward to Human Revolution, Duke Nukem, and The Witcher 2 as well, but all three are overshadowed by the notion of seeing my hard work on Shepard being brought to a conclusion.

    Indeed, this list is very similar to the one that was published recently in PC Gamer. Almost identical actually.
    Brink, DoW2 Retribution, Deus Ex 3, Battlefield 3 and Portal 2 are the ones to look out for this year, for me anyway.

    I have sincere doubts about DNF... but I hope they are dispelled. Bulletstorm looks like a very viable alternative for the frantic shooter this year.

    first page: drool!

    other pages, meh. RPG's and probably going to be brown shooters. not much innovation.

    although Homefront sounds different, to the frontline shooters we've gotten bored over the times. not sure about Deus Ex 3, i try not getting my hopes up to be disappointed.

    Brink should be something to look forward to, brilliant concept.

    any other new IP we should be looking forward to? sequals are nothing unless they have amazing innovative gameplay additions (eg, Portal 2's coop)

    Diablo 3 has been in development for so long, I'm past caring about it. I'm looking forward to Bulletstorm for some decent PC deathmatch play, and possibly Id's Rage.

    Maybe I should start reading PC Gamer again then.

    I've been hands-on with Brink a few times over the last few months. I'm yet to be impressed.
