Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo are going to have to bring out the big guns this year.
[dropcap size=small]T[/dropcap]his year’s E3 may not live up to last years’ hype what with the PS4 Pro, the Nintendo Switch, and Microsoft announcing a cryptic 4k console, but you can be sure that there are some exciting video games on the way. We’ve compiled a list of titles that have us hyped for this year’s E3 with some already unveiled games and some that we have yet to see. Let’s dive in.
No one yet knows what the title for the latest Spider-Man game will be but you can be sure that it will be nothing short of epic. We saw a brief i- game trailer at last year’s E3 but nothing that gave us much to go off of. With a whole year to prepare you can be certain that the game will almost certainly be one of the most highly anticipated games announced for the PlayStation 4.
The Last of Us Part 2
When The Last of Us was released it knocked everybody’s socks off with a compelling and heart-wrenching story. The gameplay was amazing and the graphics for the time were superb. With a cliffhanger ending and all of us wanting to know what happens next The Last of Us Part 2 will be a sight for sore eyes.
Final Fantasy VII Remake
It’s about damn time. We’re hoping that Square Enix will announce a release date for this upcoming fall but then again, they unveiled the remake back in 2017 and since then have only gifted a few screenshots from the game every few months or so. Nonetheless, the original Final Fantasy VII was ultimately the greatest game in the Final Fantasy franchise so we definitely have our fingers crossed for this one.
I don’t think anyone has a single clue what the hell this game is about yet but you can be sure we’re all excited for it. Hideo Kojima is a master at creating odd but yet thrilling stories and the trailer left us all wanting to know more. With the more and more games coming exclusively to PlayStation 4 it seems like Nintendo and Microsoft have a lot of catching up to do.
Sea of Thieves
An Xbox exclusive, Rare’s Sea of Thieves is supposed to be a massive multiplayer with side quests…and that’s all we really know about. Still, Rare has a supportive history when it comes to enjoyable games so count us in.
Call of Duty: WWII
Okay, before you get mad let me explain. The Call of Duty franchise has been a roller coaster of success with each new game in the franchise either doing well or slipping up. The Call of Duty fanbase has steadily declined over the last few years and it’s about time that someone realized we’re all tired of futuristic warfare. Going back to Call of Duty‘s roots was a brilliant move on Activision’s part. The trailer was heart pounding and the gameplay looks intense, what could possibly go wrong? (That was sarcasm)
Speaking of Activision, holy cow have the trailers for Destiny 2 been badass. The sequel to the first game has a lot of expectations to live up to, but there is no doubt it looks good. The first Destiny started out hot and then slowly fell off so hopefully Bungie will learn from their mistakes and come out of the gates guns blazing.
Super Mario Odyssey
Nintendo doesn’t seem to have a lot of exciting games on the way, which is rather sad considering the Nintendo Switch has been out for some time now. Don’t get me wrong Breathe of the Wild is downright amazing but you can only play the same game so many times and that’s where Super Mario Odyssey comes in. Will it be different from previous Mario games? Probably not, but that’s what makes Mario special. Different story and environment, same Italian plumber that we all love.
That’s all we have for now and if a game you like didn’t make the list let us know in the comments below!
