Are any good games getting released this year?

DonY81DonY81 RochesterPosts: 350Member

Whilst I would like my many awaited games to arrive now I do realise that a polished game is far more important.

When I looked at my list of games to want I started to realise that nothing seems to be released this year...

 

Correct me if im wrong...

 

Wildstar - late this year

ESO - spring 2014

Archeage - no idea..2014?

EQ Next - 2014/ 15?

WOD - 2016?

Titan - ..... mmmm 2019?

    I have to agree, all the good mmo's/games seem to have a 2014 date or further.

    See the thing is, when a game finally gets released we've all long since decided it's crap and started looking towards next years games. We're likely to never be satisfied.

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    That's actually a good observation, one I've made myself.  People get all hyped up about games, thinking they're going to be "WoW killers" and when they come out, they suck just as bad as the games we already have.  The "next big thing" is always over the next hill and the closer you get to it, the less it looks like anything impressive so people push their expectations out even farther.

    Here's a newsflash for everyone:  There is no "next big thing".  Every game is going to be just like what we have now.

    Played: UO, EQ, WoW, DDO, SWG, AO, CoH, EvE, TR, AoC, GW, GA, Aion, Allods, lots more
    Relatively Recently (Re)Played: HL2 (all), Halo (PC, all), Batman:AA; AC, ME, BS, DA, FO3, DS, Doom (all), LFD1&2, KOTOR, Portal 1&2, Blink, Elder Scrolls (all), lots more
    Now Playing: None
    Hope: None

    This year is super weak for new MMO releases.. 2014/15 will kick ass

    EQN and WoD are my biggest hopes for an actual game to have a 'home' in. The optimist in me says that Sony's been far too quiet for far too long to not have a ready EQN to release this year. I honestly think having a combined release of PS4 and EQN could be a huge huge huge boost in sales to sell the console on top of game itself and 'regenerate' the old EverCrack days. As much as I hate the idea of EQN being on consoles (without restricting a mouse and keyboard for play) I can see it being a good play.

    WoD is a pipedream right now, EVE is just too successful right now and they've just dumped their money in the basket for DUST. I don't see anything really exciting coming out of CCP regarding WoD for at least two MMO generations ~2017.

    Wildstar will be a similar case to Guild Wars 2, it'll hype. We'll tear it to pieces. The majority will move on. From what we are hearing about ESO, it will be a multiplayer game, it won't be an MMO as tradition describes. I am getting a strong "Pick up and put down." or "Rush it in a Weekend." feel from it. Archeage not including it's shiny cars and funky shirts will flop hard in the west barring major revisions to the game in it's localization.

    Whatever Titan ends up being it'll likely be successful, hopefully it'll have longevity to it however and not end up like a weekend rush game like D3 or Cata was.

    Which is what everyone said about this year and what they will say about 2016 when they're sitting around whining that nothing good is coming out in 2014/2015.  No, those games won't kick ass, they'll be exactly like what we have right now.

    If its as good as it looks, then the answer to the thread title is Yes with Hex:Shards of Fate.

    Hex looks great so far. It does suck that there's nothing right around the corner, but then it also encourages us (for better or worse) to start looking into the other mmo hybrid genres. Fps, tcg, etc.

    The question is rather hard because different people are looking forward to different games.  I for one am looking forward to WoD, EQN, The repopulation, and TESO (Somewhat).

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    Looking forward to TESO, so I guess I have to wait til 2014.

    nothing before 2015.  for me

    only EVE is real MMO...but I am impressive with TSW

  • RollieJoeRollieJoe Raleigh, NCPosts: 436Member

    Final Fantasy Reborn and Hex Shard of Fate are the only two major MMO's that seem to have a likely 2013 release date.

     

    But like some other people in this thread have said, almost EVERY MMO gets people hyped, until it comes out, and people realize its not much different than what we already have right now.  There will eventually be a "next big thing" but there is absolutely no way to tell what it will be before it releases.

    I am concerned about the future of the MMO industry. As far as I know the only P2P/B2P MMO to come out this year is Defiance and we are now in June. It seems like nobody wants to put big money into MMOs anymore.

    I'm still half-expecting ArcheAge to be released at the end of this year.

    But next year The Division is gonna take a LOT of my time, even though it's not a full-fledged MMO or even a PC game... yeah, it's that good.

    thats why Hype shouldnt start years before release. Let the game hype itself.

    I think Hex will be awesome, I backed the kickstarter and can't wait to play. But there is absolutely nothing MMO about it, regardless of what the devs say.
