One of the games that I never heard of that seems interesting is Impire, a "Dungeon Keeper-esque" game.

PC gamer had a similar article, and I think they covered a lot more. 2013 looks pretty good for gamers.

South Park Stick of Truth
Grim Dawn
War for the Overworld
Wasteland 2
Shadowrun Returns
Carmageddon: Reincarnation


The sad part is that it is somewhat questionable if any of these will actually ship this year.

SimCity ...the new engine and mechanics look really great.
Metro ....More of the same, but it was an awesome same to begin with.
TombRaider...Looks more like an emphasis on survival and story, perhaps notes taken from Uncharted series
Devil may cry...reboot done from the guys at Ninja Theory? how bad could it be
Battlefield...whatever side step they take with this...i hope it's like BF 2043
Crysis 3..no one admits it on a want list, but what the hell right? Tech demo's are fun.

I'm really hopeing Thief 4 comes out.

If you tried to build such in real life, more than half the infrastructure would completely collapse in on itself.

The PC Gamer and RPS 2013 lists seem to neglect what would possibly be the best hack n slash of 2013... Path of Exile.

They also appear to miss Hawken and MechWarrior Online... despite both being in open beta and likely to 'launch' officially in 2013.

Path of Exile is going into Open Beta not really a official release yet.

As for my list of must have games for 2013:

Metro: Last Light
Bioshock: Infinite
Grim Dawn
GTA V
The Last of Us (PS3)
Dead Space 3

Looks like a good year for me so far. I also have a huge backlog left so it should tide me over pretty well.

Pretty much just Bioshock. There's plenty I'll probably end up playing, but that's the only one that I'm actively looking forward to and will probably have at release. I'm going to try and not jump on so many games on release this year, especially the single player focused ones like GTA5.

If it's going Open Beta in January, it sounds reasonable that it may launch this year

Definitely TW Rome 2... that one is going to be epic.

But, other than that... I'm not sure. I'll buy a few games released in 2012 that I missed, but I'm not exactly looking for many this year, although some might be announced for release this year that we're not aware of at the moment. So, time will tell, but for now only Rome 2 grabs my attention.

Global Agenda 2. Probably won't play anything else when that comes out.

Only game I have seen that interests me right now is Simcity 5.

Thanks, scratched that game off my list...can't stand QTE.

Bioshock Infinite
CoH2
Indie Games

Simcity is looking like a Railroads! quality game... demo before I decide on purchase.

Indie Games... the absolutely best gaming experiences I've had this year; hoping for another great crop in 2013.

LoL God I hope not... it has been too long since we had a nice real Sim City game!

Railroads was like the toy game I let my nephew play while I do some serious railroad building on Railroad Tycoon 3

I have no idea if it's slated for 2013 or not, but for better or for worse I want to try out Neverwinter.

The new C&C Generals or whatever they are calling it

Hopefully a few pleasant surprises along the way as well.

They are a small developer so I wouldn't expect them to release by the end of the year. They have been in closed beta for a long time.

I did a beta weekend for Path of Exile...
AND i must say.
I was not very impressed. Some may like it.
I also thought I wasted money on Diablo 3, but did like Torchlight 2.
Just MHO... game is kinda crappy.

I'm looking forward to Doom 4, Quake 5 and, hopefully, Rage II.
