so what games that are announced do you think will impact the indusrty the most? what will be the biggest "game changer". 

personally i think its Destiny, i have VERY high hopes for this game and i feel that i understood the vision that bungie tried to explain they had for the game. i feel it will not only change the FPS landscape but only the online multiplayer landscape as well. i also feel it will have a huge impact on shaping online gaming on consoles for the coming generation. i also see it bring singleplayer and multiplayer closer together, as in its starting to merge the two

Another game that i think will have an impact is The Last of Us. i think it has a good chance to change character development and change story telling in video games. though i see the impact of this game to be less than the one destiny will have.

im not saying these games will 100% change the indusrty, but im saying i think they might and have a good chance at doing so

lets keep the thread about the games that are officially announced

Edit - it would be really cool if people would explain why they think the games they mention will have an impact on the indusrty, thanks



Bet With Zero: He says WiiU and XB1 gap will be higher than 1.9M by end of 2014, i say it will grow smaller or vanish. 

Bet with Pezus: i win if Watch dogs sells more on PS3+360  than on next gen PS4 + Xbox One. winner gets 1 month sig control

Bet With JoeTheBro: He says WiiU in Jan 2013 > XB1 Jan 2014, i say the opposite.

Final Fantasy XIV:Reborn and Titan from Blizzard

1st will either redeem or kill Square Enix. And 2nd is touted to be "next WoW".
We'll see if the subscription based game is still viable based off these 2.

 Nintendopie  Was obviously right and I was obviously wrong. I will forever be a lesser being than them. (6/16/13)

I wouldnt say kill it but I hope it convinces them to go back to making games like they used to instead of making new MMOs.

Agree with Titan from Blizzard...but I think its stupid for them to just close WoW (based on rumors).

 

As for other games.

1. Destiny
2. The Last Of Us
3. The Next 3D Mario :o (assuming it plays differently from Galaxy - could pave forth interest in development for the Wii-U who knows)
4. Half-Life 3

how come you question mine!? :O

well an HD zelda has been tried before, and it could put the gaming industry back to RPG route "i hope"

but yeah im feeling a little sensitive :P well yu ddint question the 3d mario.....

they said two zelda games would release in wiiu in the wii u direct. one remake and one new one... so yeah it is the same as the 3d mario... so why didnt you question that???? see im sensitive :P

how can an FPS have the biggest impact in the gaming industry? they are over saturated already with the current best selling.... the next biggest impact i think is something that would turn the gaming industry upsidedown... like farmville! or angry birds!!! or wii sports!!!! LOL

but i do hope the zelda HD (not WW) would have a major impact this gen... like the ocarina in the 64 era...

All the indie games (Braid, Limbo, Fez, etc.) will and are making the biggest impact on the industry by ushering in innovation and new ways of thinking.

     
Games can and should tell stories and share ideas through their mechanics. This is the intrinsic element of the medium and this is how experiences should be crafted in video games. No company does this as well as Nintendo and their echoes from the past.
