2020 Video Games – What I’m Waiting For
This list is a bit tougher, mainly because while I do like video games, I don’t have enough time to play them, so what games am I really looking forward to. I guess you’ll have to find out. Now, if it’s on this list, does that mean that I’ll get it the first chance I get, nope, does it mean I’ll get it in 2020, nope, but I’m interested in it and might check it out.
Cyberpunk 2077 – Keanu Reeves
That joke will never get old. But in all seriousness, that’s really one of the largest reasons. I also really like the idea of a game that is in a Cyberpunk setting. Right now I’m enjoying Horizon: Zero Dawn, which isn’t cyberpunk, but has some interesting cyber elements to it, and I am curious to see a game take on something a bit more focused into the genre. I really hope that it is a well crafted game with a good story.
Ghost of Tsushima – A game that is set in Japan where you are playing as a Samurai sounds interesting to me. I also like games that have fighting, but don’t require me to poorly shoot things, since that is not my strong suit. I hope that this game has a bit of a slower feel to it, so that you get what seems more like a Samurai aesthetic as compared to a hack and slash game. Don’t know a ton about it, but definitely is one that’s caught my eye.
Diablo IV – This is a game that I might get in 2021, why is it on this list, because it’s coming out in 2020. Why would I wait, because Diablo III was unplayable at the launch. Things were changing almost every day, and one character build would go from poor, to overpowered to unplayable, to poor in the span of two weeks. Now, hopefully that won’t be the case with this one, but I’m going to take a wait and see approach before I get this loot heavy game.
NIOH 2 – Apparently I like the Japanese aesthetic, because it’s the second one on the list. This one is based off of Dark Souls in terms of play style, so I’m assuming it’s going to be punishing. Maybe they’ll put in a mode for the level of video gamer that I am. I’m more curious to hear about this one when it comes out and how the game actually plays before jumping at it.
Marvel’s Avengers – I’m curious about this one, but I’m not that confident that it’s going to be amazing. The footage thus far is just off, mainly because they decided to keep the characters looking close to the MCU versions of the characters without it being exact so they don’t have to pay for image rights. If the game play is good, that’ll make up for the odd looks but it’s a very much wait and see for me.
Iron Man VR – This is probably my most anticipated game, maybe after Cyberpunk 2077, but one that I’m not that likely to play because it’s VR and I get motion sick at times, but also because it’s VR and I don’t have a Playstation VR set-up. If it gets good reviews, I might get a Playstation VR set-up because there’s also Boardlands 2 in VR, but I’m not holding my breath. I’m just really curious for the technology and what it’ll mean for video games and is it there to do it well.
I came up with more games than I thought I might. Like I said, I tend not to buy games right away because I already have too many to play. For the video gamers in the audience, what is the standout game for you? I know I skipped over some big titles.
