    Typically the biggest releases of the year happen over the next few months so what game is everyone looking forward to?

    Me personally I'm going with Resident Evil 6.

    Excellent list of choices, BTW. And as much as I like playing NHL based video games, I have to go with Assassin's Creed 3 on this poll. I've been looking forward to that game for almost a full year now.

    Also hoping to fall head over heels for Borderlands 2, now that I have a free copy of the first game (thanks to PlayStation Plus). Made it that much sweeter to get all of the available DLC for a mere $10, too!

    Your reasons suck. At least for me. I don't care about the campaign's storyline, because this is CoD and every level is full of endlessly respawning AI. Unless you move forward, in which case a new group start respawning. There is no guile to the AI, and no particularly difficult enemies- you meet hard ****, but are also spoonfed the ideal method of destroying it, and are frequently provided with the means to do so. It just isn't fun at all.

    And moving to the future? The future is just like WW2- done to death. I still think that Korea 1950-1952 would be by far the most interesting battlefield. And futuristic weapons will either be much the same as they are now or stupidly unbalanced.

    I like Treyarch. My opinions keep evolving, and I would now say that BO and WaW are my favourite CoD's. The zombies will be cool. But I'll need a hell of a lot more than a gut feeling that BO 2 will be good.

    Far Cry 3 might be interesting.

    Honestly, I can't comment on the A.I. situation at all. As it is, I see where you are coming from, but I really don't mind the A.I. in call of duty. Maybe they'll get better, maybe they'll stay the same. It's an unknown at this point, but what we do know is that the campaign will be very new in many ways. I really like the idea of having professional and star-factor writers working on video game storylines, and a refreshing change in story formula will be an extremely refreshing improvement on the stale "oh look, russians, i guess we need to kill them or else nuke" motivation for your character.

    And moving to the future? The future is just like WW2- done to death. I still think that Korea 1950-1952 would be by far the most interesting battlefield. And futuristic weapons will either be much the same as they are now or stupidly unbalanced.
    I would like a few good example of some near-future games. It seems to me you know where to find a whole bunch of them; I have never played a single one. Even if I'm wrong and there is a secret stash of a bunch of these titles at my local game store, it is at least going where no COD has gone before.

    I would disagree with the Korean war idea; simply because the weaponry would basically remain the same as any other WWII game, the enemies would just change color.

    Near future? The Ghost Recon games. Futures in which bullet weapons predominate- the Killzone series. Generally futuristic? Halo, Unreal, Quake, Battlefield 2142, any Star Wars game, etc. Even the alternate history games like Resistance and Fallout have pitched in. There have been many answers to the question "What cool thing could we make these weapons do?" and while it is ok for developers to continue to address that question, I don't trust Treyarch to come out with a solid multi-player experience at the end. They couldn't even get the Famas and AK-74u to fit into their classes on BO- how well do you think they'll cope with the interaction of x-ray scopes and microwave weapons with the rest of the game world?

    I've conflated my ideas on the Korean war. It would be perfect for a single-player campaign. And there was actually a heap of late and post WW2 weaponry which hasn't been featured much in games- M3, M26, SKS, etc. The AK-47 was making its first appearance at the time. There would also be interactions between Russian and Western arms that can't be done in a WW2 setting- the Sherman versus the T34, the Centurion versus the IS-2, things like that. Coming at the dawn of the jet age and on the cusp of the fully-automatic infantry platoon, being the UN's first adventure and the heavy involvement of naval power on the peninsula, Korea would be an interesting war. The best mutiplayer game wouldn't restrict itself to one period, and instead cover everything from 1939 to the present day, a new iteration of each nation's squad coming with new introductions of weapons and technologies. All of the cold war battles that were never fought, as well as inter-alliance battles (US v UK 1955 anyone?), could be featured.

    It is very hard to judge CoD games before launch. Based on what I knew before launch, BO was going to be a steaming pile of ****e. It turned out to be pretty good.

    Surprisingly Sony Smash Bros. I know what to expect with AC3... it will be amazing, but I've played/loved 4 Ac games before. Im excited to play as Big Daddy and Toro and it really is a new idea for sony (note: for sony)
