Here we are in the middle of the week. Two new consoles have entered a new generation and PC gaming is flourishing more than it ever has. Has there ever been a better time to be a gamer? We may not have the best games in the world coming out right now but I think the quality of games across the board has significantly improved over years past. This is why when I was thinking about what to do this week's list on games I am excited for came to mind. So here are my top 5 games I am excited for.
5. Final Fantasy XV
Of all the games on the list this one is all likelihood is the longest away. I have been excited for this game ever since its first iteration of Final Fantasy Versus was announced way back. The game from what we saw back at E3 looks amazing as does every Final Fantasy and maybe it is some nostaliga which makes me excited for every Final Fantasy game but I cannot wait.
4. Diablo III: Reaper of Souls
I thoroughly enjoy Diablo III and as you known I was never part of the crowd which hated on D3 just because it was the cool thing to do. I put more time into it they I care to actually admit. The features they are adding in the expansion look great along with the story progression. I have always been a fan of the angel of death archetype so it just adds to the excitement
3.Heroes of the Storm
MOBAs generally have not been my favourite type of game. Sure I have played DoTA, DoTA2, and LoL but I have just always found the style to be too slow paced and lacked the skill and management of an RTS. Maybe that is the point of them though to be more of a team game. Heroes of the Storm seems to be focusing on that team aspect which is really the thing which is peeking my interest. I cannot wait to test this out.
2. Lightning Returns
The ending to the Final Fantasy XIII sage. Lightning has been one of the most interesting and complex video game characters not only in Final Fantasy but in video games in general. Her character may not have the charisma of an Ezio or Drake, but she is just someone you enjoy playing as because she is just that bad-ass. So with that and it finally being "the end" what is there not to be excited about.
I honestly don't know if this is going to be a part 4 of the original story or something completely different but the same style. Who really knows? The only thing I know is there is going to be an Uncharted game and that is something worth getting excited about.
There you have it this week's list. What games are you getting excited for or what games are you currently excited while playing?
