Forums - Gaming Discussion - Most Wanted October

Vote for your top 5 most anticipated games in decending order!


  • Please list your platform as best as you can. If a game has votes for PS4 and PS5, I will combine the points. Same goes for the Xbox One and Series S|X. 
  • NO, EVERYONE LIST YOUR PLATFORM! I'll likely separate the consoles out in the system breakdown though. 
  • These are the stipulations for voting
    • While mostly games should be formally announced, yearly games will be allowed but games that are likely in development need actual confirmation. Games like Elder Scrolls VI and Ni No Kuni 3, where they have been confirmed at least are eligible.
    • The game cannot release in SEPTEMBER 2022 (or before). So it has to be OCTOBER 2022 or after.
      • If a game has already released on other consoles but comes out later on your console of choice, feel free to vote for it (For instance, Deathproof is out for PS5 but the XBox version won't come out until later). 
      • If a game has not released in your region, you may still vote for it. (For instance, The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero is out in Japan and for other systems but won't release in the US until Fall 2022)....okay so I need to update this one but having difficulty coming with an example...
      • If you have a question about a release of a game, feel free to ask. I sometimes take a while to get back in touch but I'll address the issue when i see it. Furthermore, if there is a mistake on my part, feel free to let me know and I will correct it. I also plan to revisit this thread mid-month to adjust dates that have changed/been confirmed. This way it can stay somewhat accurate at least. A lot of games are getting their release dates changed so I want to make sure this thread remains somewhat accurate. 
  • Points will be tallied based off of the placement of the titles. For instance, your #1 will get 5 points, #2 will get 4, etc. 
    • 1. = 5 points
    • 2. = 4 points
    • 3. = 3 points
    • 4. = 2 points
    • 5. = 1 point
  • If you need to edit your post, please create a new post and quote your old post. As I go through and count your votes, I will be hitting the like button on your post to make sure you know your post has been counted. Please refrain from editing the post after I like your post. 
  • If you would like to see the previous months votes whether to check your own votes or get ideas of games that haven't come out yet, you can do so here.

As usual, I want to thank the community for making this thread possible!

"Just for comparison Uncharted 4 was 20x bigger than Splatoon 2. This shows the huge difference between Sony's first-party games and Nintendo's first-party games."

Right, Trails From Zero comes out soon, need to pick a new game to replace it now.
