Biggest game in 2020? Possibly. Though for me personally Ghost tops my list. Plus I'm expecting something exciting from Nintendo.

In order of excitement for me

1) FF7 Remake

2) TLOU II

3) Cyber Punk 2077

4) Ghosts of Tsushima

5) Nioh 2

FF7 is on top because i never played the original game back on the PS1 (yeah i know what a fuck up) and i just missed on experiencing that game back in the day when it didnt just wow people because it was great, but also because of its graphics and improvements (like the fact that when you changed a sword on the menu the in game character actually had a different looking sword, many other games didnt had that), so now i finally get to enjoy this game while at the same time being blown away by superficial stuff like graphics and attention to detail.

Granted the truth is there is a good chance that when i have played all of those games TLOU Part II will end up being my favorite since ND are just that good, but in terms of excitement thats what my list looks like.

FF7 is pretty good, but it doesn't come close to TLoU.

Hope you don't have unreal hopes for it.

And are you really that excited for Cyberpunk? Last time I didn't get your hype for a game because I have none I was really, really wrong (Nier Automata), so I'll keep more of an eye for it from now on.

A lot of it for me is having younger kids at home.  So anything kid friendly is just a better option, because I can play it with (and in front of the kids) and having younger kids has me in a space of preferring more light hearted games.  Having said that, Ghost looks amazing for the ps4.  I am beyond excited on that one.   

I have young kids, but I don't let their taste dictate my enjoyment. I have stuff to enjoy with them, but I won't miss games I like because of it. Also not a good reason to call it mehh.

Yeah, cause that is what I said.  Lol.

TLoU2, Cyberpunk 2077, Ghosts of Tsushima, FF7 Remake, my ranking for 2020

Played half of FF7 but never finished it. Great game but my save got destroyed. I didn't even rank Nioh 2. I tried going back to Nioh after playing Shadows die twice and the game play feels silly now. I can't take the game seriously anymore. Didn't see anything in Nioh 2 that would change that.

2020 is a dream. And dont forget JRPG-Masterpiece Persona 5 The Royal, its coming in the first 2020-quarter too. And the Yakuza-Collection for me ^^ But The Last of Us 2 is 100 % the biggest game (with Ghost of Tsushima) in my personally opinion :)

ps. TLOU2 is on amazonUSA very strong. What are your forecests for the first week(worldwide sales figures), guys ?



I will preorder it today !

Well to expand further into why FF7 is at the top of my list.

I have kept myself on the dark regarding TLOU II (i didnt watch any of the new content that was recently shown), i dont even know what the story is about so its hard to be excited when i havent seen that much, and as i said before i didnt play the original FF7 and i have spent almost 2 decades at this point listening to people talk about how awesome it was, im also more into JRPGs than i am into survival horror games and add to that the fact that i have my bias as well since i do tend to enjoy japanese games more than western ones in general, (and i repeat "in general" since there are obviously many exceptions).

however i understand where you are coming from since i know first hand the quality of ND and how they keep surpassing my expectations, and thats why at the end of my comment i said that there is a good chance that once i have played all the games TLOU II will end up being my favorite, im just simply not that excited since i havent seen that much about the game (which is great for me because the game will have an easier time surprising me and surpassing my expectations).

Regarding Cyberpunk 2077.

I dont know if you do but i enjoy the GTA games, and Cyberpunk basically looks like a GTA game on a much more interesting setting, with better looking gameplay, way more customization, more interesting story, better sidequests in general (if i can judge it based on CD Project Reds previous works), a city that is going to be much more interesting to explore due to the setting, and a ton of RPG mechanics that i love in games.

Also i love the fact that you did enjoy Automata, (its still is my favorite game this gen).

Person 5 R I don't think I'll ever play. I already beat the original game and I'm not a huge fan of replaying games like that for a small amount of added on content (compared to the overall game that is). Maybe in 5 years or so I'll go back to it but do Persona 5 R. That's what I did with Vesperia. 

Yakuza Collection is another on my list. Currently working my way through that series now. Next up is Kiwami 2 but that wont be for a few months. Have after stuff I want to play first. I beat Kiwami recently don't want to burn myself out.

I'm gonna pre order it digitally BUT beware. Whenever a game like this launches some asshole will try to ruin it with spoilers.

True. However, I've always find it fairly easy to avoid such things. I had Endgame ruined by ads on VGC though. And a UFC fighter ruined The Last Jedi for me. That blow was softened however, when upon viewing, the movie ruined itself. I can't say I've ever had a game spoiled though. Lucky? Careful? A bit of both maybe.

I actually lucked out with TLoU. I was able to buy it for the PS3 and not finish it. Then buy it again for PS4 and get to the end without spoilers.

With games like MGS4, some guy actually went through the trouble of posting spoilers on my wall (a banned user named Raiden Saves Snake). Somebody messaged me a huge death in Gears 3. And a gif of a lady smacking her ass spoiled Star Wars TFA while I was on my way to see it. Same with Logan.

It's usually a fanboy that goes out of their way to spoil things for a game console or franchise they don't like. And usually it's a big anticipated story based game.

I probably won't pre order it until we get closer to launch.

TLOU PT.II is going to do crazy numbers! 20 Million lifetime minimum.
