This week in GamR Mag’s Tuesday’s Top Ten list, we take a look at the 10 games on our radar that we are most excited about getting our hands on. Now some of these titles may be releasing on current gen consoles as well, but we are more excited about their next gen counterparts. The past is behind us, and the future is now, so why don’t we take a look at GamR Mag’s Top Ten Most Exciting Next Gen Games!
10. Battlefield 4 (Xbox One, PlayStation 4)
Battlefield 4 looks to be a stunning next generation first person shooter. The previous installment was plauged with frame rate issues, server maintenance problems, game breaking bugs, long patch preparation times, and an issue with community communication. If all of those problems have been fixed, as they appeared to be with the latter stages of Battlefield 3′s life, then we are so hyped to play it, especially since consoles will finally see 64 person battles. Did we mention Frostbite 3.0?
9. Forza 5 (Xbox One)
It seems as if E3 brought us a ton of games from the racing genre; Need for Speed Rivals, The Crew, Drive Club, etc. Those games may look good, but no racing game has us more excited than Forza 5. The graphics look about as life like as one can imagine at this point, factor in the new features, one such as “drivatar”, and Forza may help push the Xbox One as the must have console for racing fans.
8. Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One)
We haven’t seen a ton from Ryse: Son of Rome, but what we have seen has impressed us. We are very interested in seeing just how well the Kinect 2.0 integration is with Ryse, but the graphics, action and battle sequences will have to hold us over for the time being.
7. Watch_Dogs (Xbox One, PlayStation 4)
There has been some speculation as to how the game will look on next generation consoles, especially after the current generation version had a questionable gameplay trailer surface. After seeing what Watch_Dogs can bring to the next generation of console gaming, we aren’t worried. The game appears to be a hit franchise in the making, something Ubisoft won’t be afraid to release annually if sales dictate demand.
6. InFamous: Second Son (PlayStation 4)
Our first PlayStation Exclusive to make the list is InFamous: Second Son. InFamous was a hugely popular franchise for the PlayStation 3, but wasn’t the type of game that really moved consoles. Luckily for PlayStation owners, the PSN hack that brought don the system for over a month gave everyone the opportunity to get their hands on InFamous. The newest installment looks breathtaking on next generation hardware, and although it may not be available at launch, it will definitely be a console mover this holiday season.
