While we are on the subject of gaming, we thought we will come up with the most anticipated games in the current year. I am sure there are a lot of gaming fans out there and you will not be disappointed with this list. 2012 will probably be one of the hottest years for gaming considering the fact that many awesome titles will be released as you might already know if you saw the E3 conference. If not already, get your computer systems and consoles up to speed because this year will be amazing. Play hard!
10. FAR CRY 3
This was probably the best announcement made by Ubisoft over at the E3 press conference this year. They revealed the next chapter in the Far Cry series. Far Cry 3 is all about rich and green jungle environments. I remember watching the gameplay and having my mind blown. The characters have a lot of personality. The game is all set to release on the 4th September this year. Far Cry 3 is an open world first-person shooter game. All you have to do is escape from the island. Enjoy!
9. MAX PAYNE 3
Folks you remember the Max Payne series. It has been a really long time since the second part was released. It failed to disappoint me. The third installment has already been released for consoles and PCs. It follows the tradition with the third-person view. The franchise in notable for bullet-time and that is also included in the latest installment. The game shipped around 3 million units during the first week of its release; I’d say that is pretty impressive.
8. TWISTED METAL
This game is all set to provide a lot of fun to the gamers. It is a classic car combat series. It started a long time ago on the PlayStation and now for the PS3, it is back and is better than ever. The game features many unique multiplayer modes that should keep you interested for a long time to come. The latest release of this game happened during February in 2012. The game allows the usage of ballistic projectiles, machine guns, mines and other weapons. You get to choose the vehicle and the arena to blast things around.
If you consider the awesome track record of the developers behind this game, it is reason enough to start saving up for it. The release date for the game is still to be announced. It is basically a four-player cooperative action video game. The four agents are known as Overstrike 9. They use neat gadgets and teamwork to infiltrate the enemy strongholds and mess their life up. Dalton Brooks is equipped with an energy shield, Naya Deveraux is equipped with a cloaking device, Isabelle Sinclair has a mass bubble gun and Jacob Kimble has an electric crossbow.
6. FINAL FANTASTY XIII-2
I understand that most of you have been disappointed by the latest releases of Final Fantasy. The direction the game took was just not satisfactory enough. It is a role-playing game published by Square Enix and is a direct sequel to the game released back in 2010. The game did a lot better than the previous installment and sold around 1.1 million copies worldwide during the first week of sales. I decided to give it this spot, but I figure most of you will not agree with me here.
