Top Five Games That I am Looking Forward To

Here’s a list of the five games that I am looking forward to in 2011. What are the games that you are looking forward to this year?

Dragon Age 2: I’m a huge Dragon Age: Origins fan, so much in fact that I have the same game on XB360 and on the PC. I have all the achievements for the 360 version, including all achievements for the downloadable content. Yes, it does get repetitive at times but I love the story and the characters. I’ve heard that Bioware has made changes to how Dragon Age 2 will play and it’s rumored to be more like Mass Effect. Hopefully this new changes will be for the better. I would hate for Dragon Age 2 to suffer a terrible fate, however I do trust Bioware and even though a part of me is worried about how good Dragon Age 2 will be, I’m sure it will be just as good as the first game, if not better.

Star Wars: The Old Republic: This is another gaming series that I love and that I have played over and over again. I’m still part of the group that wants a Knights of the Old Republic 3 but this MMO is shaping out to be pretty good.

Mass Effect 3: I’m seeing a trend of Bioware games here and I really don’t mind. They know how to make games. I’ve been a fan since the first game and I want to know how the story ends. It is rumored that Mass Effect 3 might be delayed until 2012 but as of right now, it’s suppose to come out this year. I just hope it doesn’t come out around the same time as the Star Wars MMO.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: I spent hours played MvC and MvC2 on the Dreamcast againt my friends. Time wasted trying to get enough points to unlock new characters and to better myself as a fighter. I honestly thought that this game would never happen and now that we’re getting close to a release date, I am very eager to play this game.

Potral 2: I didn’t play Portal when it was first released and instead I heard about it via word of mouth. I’m interested to see what changes and new additions Valve has added to this interesting puzzle game. Funny thing is, I’m really not into puzzle games but there’s something about Portal and cake that keeps me coming back for more.
