Your Hype List

By Chris Remo, Aug 29, 2005 2:03pm PDT Some of you, possibly more than a few, probably play PC games. It is surely also safe to say that you plan on continuing to indulge in interactive entertainment for IBM PC & compatible PC clones (or Tandy). So then, what are your most anticipated upcoming games for the personal computer platform in the next six months? Inquiring minds (at Shack) want to know!

In no particular order, I'll go with Half-Life 2: Aftermath, Indigo Prophecy (Fahrenheit), The Movies, Black & White 2, Bone, and Serious Sam 2. Whoa, two Peter Molyneux games.

  • It's a potent list for me, though I'm avoiding games that I think might be iffy so this list is probably shorter than it could be. My list of deeply awaited games include the following:

    1. BF2 Expansion: Special Forces and the 1.03 patch (just to tighten it up a bit more)
    2. Dawn of War Expansion: Winter Assault (very close now!)
    3. Call of Duty 2
    4. F.E.A.R.
    5. Dragonshard (D&D RTS)
    6. Rise of Legends (Sequel to Rise of Nations but now with TWICE the 'fantasy')
    7. Prey
    8. Age of Empires 3
    9. The Movies
    10. Elder Scrolls: Oblivion
    11. Civilization 4 (naturally)
    12. Rome Total War Expansion: Barbarian Invasion
    13. Company of Heroes (NEW WW2 RTS from Relic!)

    Never liked the quake series so other than Prey I'm deeply uninterested in any of the new Quake-y games. Not interested in any other Source-engine games since it makes me vastly naseous, plus they're rather over-rated anyway.

  • I ♥ these kinds of threads!

    01) S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl
    02) Gothic III
    03) Half Life ²: Aftermath / The Lost Coast
    04) F.E.A.R.
    05) Hitman: Bloodmoney
    06) A Vampyre Story
    07) The Witcher
    08) Bone
    09) Myst V: End of Ages
    10) Tomb Raider: Legend
    11) Dreamfall: The Longest Journey
    12) Prey
    13) Quake IV
    14) Fable: The Lost Chapters

    6 months and beyond...

    Alan Wake (actually, this is my most anticipated game)
    Dark Messiah of Might & Magic
    Neverwinter Nights II
    Duke Nukem Forever
    Far Cry sequel / expansion
    Max Payne 3

  • Not really hyped for that many PC games right now... But...

    Oblivion (obviously)
    Prey (if it comes out in time)
    STALKER (if it ever comes out)
    DNF (if it comes out in time?)
    Fable (not sure if I'm hyped... seems kinda interesting... hoping for a demo)
    Crashday (if it makes it out in time)
    Serious Sam 2 (well, I hope it's as much fun as the old ones)
    Civilization 4 (if it makes it out in time)

    Hmm, that's quite a lenghty list after all...

    Oh, and some MMORPGs probably, but I doubt they'll make it out in the next 6 months...

    All time hype for a longer period of time would be Spore and Project Offset. Both unrivaled by any other games (well, Oblivion probably fits with those two). But they're either far away or unlikely to ever be realised. :(
