  • #4. BioShock Infinite

    Info: BioShock Infinite Preview
    Buy It: Pre-order BioShock Infinite
    Sales Previous Game: 4 Million
    Release Date: March 26, 2013
    System: Xbox 360, PS3, PC
    Developer: Irrational Games
    Genre: First-Person Shooter

    Why Play It?: The studio behind the original BioShock is back! Set in 1912, before the other two games, but not as a prequel. BioShock Infinite introduces an entirely new narrative experience that lifts players out of the familiar confines of Rapture and rockets them to Columbia, an immense city in the sky. On this adventure the mysterious protagonist will be tasked to save Elizabeth, a “great AI companion” with “near-human behavior”.

    #3. Destiny

    Info: Bungie Destiny MMO-like
    Buy It: Pre-order Destiny
    Sales Previous Developed Game: 11.5 Million
    Release Date: Winter 2013 (may mean 2014)
    System: Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4
    Developer: Bungie
    Genre: First-Person Shooter / Action-Adventure?

    Why Play It?: The studio that built Halo signed up with Activision just to be able to make this brand new game, their first multiplatform title since leaving Microsoft. Word has it they are hoping Destiny will start a Trilogy that will rival the original Star Wars Trilogy in scope. It’s an ambitious project for sure, as you can see in this fan-made trailer with the game’s actual concept art animated.

    #2. Call of Duty: Ghosts

    Info: Call of Duty: Ghosts Gameplay
    Buy It: Pre-order Call of Duty: Ghosts
    Sales Previous Game: 25+ Million
    Release Date: November 5, 2013
    System: Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii U, Xbox One, PS4
    Developer: Infinity Ward
    Genre: First-person Shooter

    Why Play It?: As part of a yearly release cycle, a sequel to Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is next on the table. COD is always a big deal because of it’s explosive campaign and endlessly entertaining multiplayer. Fan-made trailers aplenty, but some ideas for new locations across the world where Modern Warfare 4 could take place would be welcome…

    #1. Grand Theft Auto V

    Info: Grand Theft Auto V Analysis
    Buy It: Pre-order Grand Theft Auto V
    Sales Previous Game: 25+ Million
    Release Date: May 14, 2013 (estimate)
    System: Xbox 360, PS3; PC & Wii U being considered
    Developer: Rockstar North
    Genre: Action-Adventure, Sandbox, Third-Person Shooter

    Why Play It?: GTA 5’s sandbox scale has been said to be “vast”, this is likely an understatement. We’re promised an “breathtaking entertainment experience” and “the largest and the most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created”. With a story set in a modern-day setting told by three different protagonists — and hookers just waiting to be run over (bad joke, I know) — fans have a lot to be excited about with the series returning to San Andreas and its surrounding areas.
