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.
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).
