Out of the 23 submitted titles, the top spot goes to the following 4.

Anthem – Bioware / EA

Despite what people think of EA, sometimes they manage to pull something out of the bag that wows us all, I have that feeling about Anthem, we may end up disappointed but I’m happy to go along for the ride and see what happens…

Detroit: Become Human – Quantic Dream / SIE

It looks stunning ….. after all this is from the development studio that brought us Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls, which is enough to have me giddy at the knees

Monster Hunter World – Capcom / Capcom

I love monster movies, as I type this I have Godzilla on in the background, the 1998 one people seem to hate, but I cannot resist a monster movie. Games of this ilk don’t seem to find their way to me very often so this game has my interest.

Red Dead Redemption II – Rockstar Studios / Rockstar Games

… This will be epic! The only question is just how epic! The original was a masterpiece, as Rockstar are experts at creating a living, breathing world with an incredible story. Given the quality jump between GTA4 and GTA5 I find myself salivating at what RDR2 will bring. And the success of GTA Online will surely signal the beginning of Read Dead Online, with posses of Cowboys all causing mayhem in the Wild West. CAN. NOT. WAIT!

I am a father, a husband and a spartan. I started out gaming as a blue hedgehog, then I traded in my racing shoes for a gender-neutral space suit. From there it was a blur, I lived through fantasies that were not so final, landed on universe ending rings, and more recently I have defended Azeroth from Orcs. Lots. Of. Orcs. Oh, also, whose foot prints are these?
