"It'll reuse the same map! It's going to be boring!" Lol, don't care+ratio+L. By reusing the same map I can only imagine all the new things they can add to take BotW from tech demo status to a work of art status. Even though I already felt like BotW was a work of art. This is my most anticipated game as most Zeldas are. It's the type of series where I stop everything I'm doing and play it as much as possible when a new one comes. These games feel like a part of the "pillars of awesome games" like Elden ring or SotC. Also, I hope this game continues to make journos SEETHE.
Skyward sword and Twilight Princess but better. The gliding, free falling.

That spiritual successor to Dead Space, Callisto Protocol, is looking pretty good. I've been itching for more classic dead space type survival horror since I binged the trilogy last year.

They said Hollow Knight Silksong was gonna come out next year.
Then again, they also it would come out next year back in 2019.
But even the wait for Silksong is nothing compared to a certain other game series which happens to be my favorite, ever. I honestly thought the fourth entry was cancelled after it was "almost done" back in 2015 and then radio silence for the next 7 years.

I patiently await Armored Core 6, the game seems to be stuck in a "we will get to it eventually" continuum since From hit it big with Dark Souls.
It honestly wouldn't surprise me if it came out structured more like Armored Souls or Elden Core at this point, the only thing I think I can count on is for the online PvP to be poorly balanced on release.

Oh I think Daemon X Machina 2 is also being worked on ATM, so that would also be nice.

I was looking forward to Scorn and I haven't gotten around to playing it yet, really glad it's finally out.
I was also looking forward to Darktide because it seemed to be Space Hulk: Deathwing done well but from the videos of the closed beta I've seen it has too much UI bloat and seems overcomplicated so they can sell season pass, cosmetics and DLC.
Homeworld 3 very much anticipate, but you never know, I still have not forgotten Dawn of War 3.
Space Marine 2 and Starfield next year.
I know Starfield will suck in the typical Bethesda fashion but at this point I don't care, I want to explore a large game world in a NEW SETTING. I'M SICK OF SEQUELS AND REHASHES.

And whenever the new Armored Core and Ace Combat games come out, maybe next decade.

Dreamsettler. For some reason, i liked the idea. Since there aren't many indie games about 2000s culture at the time i post this.

Anyone know anything about Signalis? I subscribed to the dev's Youtube channel after seeing the first trailer and then completely forgot about it. At the time I assumed the game was vaporware, but today I got a notification that it's been released. The visual style is great (the dev is clearly taking cues from several super-famous anime and manga, but that's not necessarily a bad thing) and the gameplay looks interesting. I'm definitely going to be checking it out.
I don't know why so many people complain about indie games being dead, new and interesting stuff is coming out all the time if you know where to look for it.

For me it's Street Fighter 6 but Pikmin 4 is a huge huge want.
I think the reason for the delay was it probably being made for the dead Wii U or the like. They probably wanted to wait for a more sure thing, or some other such nonsense.

I've got a rant that I've got nowhere to really put other than here.
It's been five years since the release of Doki Doki Literature Club. I remember playing the game myself barely a few months after release when it was picking up a bit, I was about 15 years old and sad, and I enjoyed it. What I was excited for though wasn't that anymore but it was a thing Dan Salvato said, maybe a year or two after DDLC, that he was working on another visual novel, apparently a science-fiction type of one. When I heard that I was pretty excited and started waiting for a teaser or some news to drop. I waited a year, and I kinda forgot about it. Then last year, I was reminded once again by the news of DDLC Plus. That game idea was unappealing, it kinda got rid of that "character file" twist even if it was already gimmicky, and now it's got 'side content' and whatnot. Sounds a bit like trampling the original thing, but I honestly don't care about that because I can ignore it. What actually annoyed me was that it made it quite obvious that in this whole time, 'Team Salvato' had not done a single thing on this sci-fi visual novel that I was curious to at least see. I mean, he must have made a bucketload of money and I'd do the same in his shoes, but that doesn't stop me in my own shoes from being annoyed.
There's still not a peep on that new project, so I suspect that he has dropped it. But if he hasn't, then I guess that'll be the upcoming video game I am looking forward to.

As a huge sega/dreamcast fan, I'm really looking forward to Bomb Rush Cyberfunk. Jet Set Radio is one of my favorites and its great to see a new game with the same spirit.

Check this shit out.

I'm really excited about Bomb rush cyberfunk as well! If Sega won't make a new JSR might as well play this game. The soundtrack is also looking to be pretty awesome.

S&box - sequel to Gmod in Source 2 being made by Garry.

Putting aside the technical upgrades Source 2 offers (most of which are due to being a modern engine, and not a twenty year old upgrade of Quake's tech), what I've seen of S&box is extremely promising for allowing you to much more easily create full-featured & self-contained mods. Gmod always had this problem, where to build atop it, you end up in some very hacky territory (not to mention the pretty harsh limit imposed in some places where you'd hit the limits of Hammer & GLua w/ a hard "to continue you must recompile the engine & make your own game"), and the game always feels kind of flimsy atop the sandbox base. I get the feeling from what I've seen that S&box makes this kind of thing easier, you can more easily make "total conversion" type addons, use it as a development platform for your own projects - very very promising!
