Which Game Do You Think Will Dominate This Year???

Post by cryssweet » Thu Mar 20, 2008 4:57 pm

We can obviously tell which games will be sold very quickly, and be talked about for ages. Here is a few that I have picked which will be talked about for a good time:
1. Gears Of War 2
2. Fable 2
3. Saints Row 2
4. GTA IV
5. MGS4
6. SSBB
7. God Of War 3
8. Dark Sector

There is more, but you can pick your own selection of games which will dominate this year. So what are your thoughts and opinions share it on this thread, and see what reaction we shall get.

GTA4

Because between Sony, MS and Rockstar more cash will be p**sed up against the wall than is sensible for marketing this.

Then it'll be a fight between Gears of War 2, MGS4, God of War 3.

Obviously the real winner isn't listed: "Mario NintenDogs Fit Wii Brain 3" or something like that will sell a gazillion. (which is a lot)

Failing that Fifa '09 (assuming it isn't already released :? )

As Fable isn't due until 12th December I would think that will win.

Wii Fit will do AMAZING, whether or not you consider that a game is another matter entirely.

GTA will have stupid over the top day 1 sales, but others not yet mentioned to keep an eye on are the new TOCA (which is called Race Driver: GRID and is awesome incidently, albeit a little Need for Speed style wise, but the game rocks) Mario Kart on Wii and the Star Wars: Force Unleashed which should also all command a good slice of market share.

And then there's all the as of yet unnanounced stuff, perhaps even the new Tomb Raider might have a shout?

I think these will obviously sell loads (sequals always do) but I also think they'll all be exceptionally good games.

I'm hoping Alan Wake, Alone in the Dark and Resi 5 will also be worth the wait.

Alone in the Dark is flippin ace - I've seen a few levels and the graphic engine is something else, especially the bit where you are driving through the city and it's all crumbling to pieces. I think it's going to turn out to be something special judging on what I saw and that was a few months back too so I'd expect it to be even better by now :)

GTAIV hands down winner.

Resi 5 isn't coming out this year, but that will do real well and will ROCK.

Really looking forward to Alan Wake too, that might be the big winner for me personally if it lives up to my expectations :)

Gotta be GTAIV doesn't it? If they mess up with this game I'll be mightily surprised. If Resi5 makes it this year, that'll be huge too - else I'm guessing MGS4 and/or Killzone 2 will be huge too.

I'd tend to imagine GTA IV, Gears of War 2 & Wii Fit will do quite well.

Indiana Jones - lego

That will sell a couple.....

I would imagine if Crysis is released for the 360 that should shift at least 30 copies.......

The Star Wars light sabre game, if it ever actually makes its release this year, should be good. The Force Unleashed should generate some buzz, but I don't see it as a 'game of the year' yet.
