  • Venom Snake

    2016 aka the best year of current gen.

      Everyone in 2014 said that about 2015, then all the games that were supposed to come out in 2014, that got delayed to 2015, are mostly delayed till 2016. So I’m not holding my breath. I expect more half-assed “HD remastered editions” and puked out war games with a new surname. Anything else I will consider a pleasant surprise.

      • Venom Snake

        Tom Clancy’s The Division
        Quantum Break
        Dark Souls III
        Street Fighter V
        Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
        Final Fantasy XV
        Gears of War 4
        The Legend of Zelda Wii U
        Horizon: Zero Dawn
        The Last Guardian

        • Joshua Pirog

          That’s a fancy list, my point is I doubt half of those will make it in 2016. More like 2017 – especially Gears 4, Horizon, Last Guardian (still vaporware) and Dreams.

          • Venom Snake

            I’m positive all of them will release in 2016 except for TLG

        • William Jennings

          Nobody said Zelda was going to be released next year

          • Venom Snake

            Yeah right
