Problem is how many really amazing games are releasing in 2014? I have enough old games to keep me occupied while I wait for some of the 2015 heavy hitters, so I don't really get hyped for games I'll likley buy one day in 2014.

I rarely buy games day 1, unless they are really good. That said I'm sitting here waiting for XenoBlade and Mass Effect specifically, so I'll keep voting them every month while I play some 6th and 8th gen classics (mostly focusing on those two gens). I want to vote for a 2014 title, but I'm just not really into much for 2014. Not a fan of fighters (Smash Bros), don't know much about Destiny, don't care about annual/biannual releases (Assassin's Creed/Forza/Call of Duty), nor do I care much about remasters/remakes (TLoU/Halo2/Pokemon) and yea....

Plus, I want to literally vote my most hyped games, regardless of realease date, so that others who look at the results can see they exist/are hyped. I joined VGC because of how conclusive these threads were, and how they gave a great list of games to look forward to. Using these results, I rarely feel I forget a game, no matter how niche it is.


For me several amazing games coming in 2014, but obviously the listing is subjective and no one is wrong to pick their games.  For me it has become harder over time to get that excited about games far off any more.  I am curious about the next Zelda, but until I see a bunch of gameplay and can see it being out within six months or so hard for me to work up much enthusiasm.  I remember agonizing over waiting for Ocarina of Time for a long time and it was not a pleasant experienc e personally even if the pay off was massive.

Why agonize? I tend to not pay attention to games coming out (except release dates) so that I don't see too much. Companies can release trailers which don't spoil the game, but just seeing a specfic area (saw a volcano area), or shot tidbits of a boss, you know a bit about what's coming.

Zelda I agree with, Nintendo only really showed a clip saying "we're making it like this", but nothing to get excited about. However you can base expectations for Zelda, Uncharted, Halo, etc, based off experiences with past entries.

The way I see 2014 is "mostly sequels to meh games." I'm not hyped for another Assassin's Creed or another Call of Duty. I haven't even been able to keep up with the franchises.

Out of curiousity, how many games are you still planning on buying in 2014? I only have 3 for sure (Smash Bros, Phoenix Wright Vs. and Pokemon) and the other games I have pre-ordered are 2015.

I tend to do better "out of sight, out of mind" with games or films or television shows.  If I anticipate something I think about it and covet it and even obsess a bit about it.  Focusing on more current events makes that process much more pleasant for me.

2014? While I agree have zero interest in Assassin's Creed anymore and never cared about Call of Duty there are plenty of games I want to buy left.

Tales of Xillia 2, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus, Dangan Ronpa 2, Warriors Orochi 2 Ultimate, Hatsune Miku 2, Freedom Wars, Sword Art Online, Transistor, Child of Light, Shovel Knight, South Park: Stick of Truth, Valiant Hearts, Broken Age, Murasaki Baby, Oreshika, Wolf Among Us, Samurai Warriros 4, Tales of Heart R, Xblaze: Code Embryo, Arcana Heart 3: Love Max!, Fairy Fencer F, Battle Princess of Arcadias, Guilty Gear Xrd, Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection, Demon Gaze, Witch and the Hundred Knights, Akiba's Trip, Mind Zero, Ys: Memories of Celceta, Shantae: Half Genie Hero, Rime, Hyperdimension Neptunia: Rebirth, Professor Layton v. Ace Attorney, Super Smash Bros., Entwined, Little Big Planet 3, Apotheon, etc.

So...yeah, I have not enough funds or time to play all the games I want in 2014, and 2015 is looking to be as bad (or is it good?) for me and my wallet.

We literally are opposites, I just focus on what I want until the stuff I really really want come out.

As for what you mentioned in 2014.......do you really have time for all that? I'll probably pick up Tales of Xillia 2 and Zesteria, but I'm in no rush. I still haven't finished Xillia nor Graces f, so why buy the sequel?

I know I can manage completeing about 1 game per month, so your list for 2014 would take me to 2016 lol. I have to skip a lot of stuff like that.

The answer to that is honestly...no. I struggle with a backlog that I never let get above ten games and I often put off games for months if not years after release.  I also have had to learn many games I burn through ignoring side quests and all for.  I have finished Xillia and Grace f so no issue there actually.

I can complete some games in a day or two, like a God of War, Infamous, or Uncharted, but it is my love of RPGs that does me in as even burning through takes two-three weeks generally.  If only I didn't have my business and social life and other interests!  

It is funny, as a kid I got 1-3 new games a year and played them for 100s of hours (I must have beaten Chrono Trigger a dozen times on SNES), now I have money for all the games I could want and no time for all of them, much less to revisit games.  Not sure if that is right, but when you are financially secure with no children (yet) I guess I am not hurting anyone. Just makes me chuckle when people grumble about "No Games!" on forums when I feel buried in them at times.

I'd rather play less and enjoy what I have then burn through everything they can make. I don't know how you have the time for it though, on average I only get an 1-2 hours a day in, and yea stuff like Resident Evil are only 12 hours long so I can beat them in a week, but stuff like XenoBlade are 60+ hours long and I need 1-2 months. Even then some games like Bravely Default get very repetative, I can't add more then 5 hours a week despite it being my primary game atm.

I don't like rushing through games, so what I do is I make a note of games (like Danganroppa and Tales of Hearts R) and I get them when I have some spare time.

For me the big thing is I love 90's gaming and I was too young/impressionable to really play the better 90's games. I didn't beat Chrono Trigger until about 10 years ago, and since then I've been puting a huge focus on 90's games. I'm only just now buying a Sega Saturn, and I still have 25 or so PS1 games to beat. After that I have about 20 or so PS2 RPG's to beat and maybe 5 onthe DC. I literally have a backlog of about 200 games, but it gives me the freedom to play what I want, when I want to play it.

But everyone is different right? Kudos for having the time for all those games, I wish I had the time/energy for all that.

Would be nice to get enrollment up a little, though.

So I have a question for you. Have you beaten every single retro game you've ever wanted to play?

It's just I have a hard time seeing a need to buy all these brand new for the full retail price when I know about so many great retro games which I've missed out on. Even something as little as Startropics (which I just started playing now), when some of the retro games look more interesting then the newer games, I have trouble buying new games. So what I end up doing is snagging them when they drop to about $20, only because after that JRPG's often get pulled off shelves and go up in price.
