All I know is that marketing is doing its magic and it's getting people more excited than ever. I also believe that the games that were listed are all titles that either are way superior to the previous iterations or really unique in presentation. A game like Octopath Traveler had that appeal because of its presentation.
In a world where many publishers are giving us content that is infirior to previous games for the sake of greed, that is my entire point. =)
