january 2018 most anticipated games reader survey

At the beginning of every year, we typically have a good look at what games will be releasing throughout the upcoming 12 months, and every year is pretty much full of great games to choose from on a monthly basis. With a wide variety of Role Playing, Action, Shooter, and many other game genres releasing a myriad number of titles, there's bound to be something that appeals to every gamer releasing on every platform.

Continuing our monthly reader gaming survey (click here to see the latest), we asked our readerbase the following question and got a number of great responses. This question even got us to start having our staff join in on these monthly questions!

What game are you looking forward to in 2018? Why are you looking forward to that game?

Dragonball FighterZ (Our Review)

"I love fighting games, and I’m a big fan of The Dragonball series as well. After being disappointed with Injustice 2 and Marvel vs Capcom Infinite just looking like a terrible game I can’t wait to get my hands on a great fighting game again." - Chaos1950

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

"Because it's swim or sink for what is probably my favorite saga." - MobiusR

"I've been an Ace Combat fan for years, and this game looks to be trying to push the limits of this genre even further then what the previous games did. Project ACES has always been the best in the arcade flight sim business, and I can't wait to see what they have in store." - Woozle

Shadow of the Colossus

"I have come here to chew bubblegum and kill colossi and I'm all out of bubblegum" - Metii

Red Dead Redemption 2

"Because the first Red Dead Redemption was a masterpiece." - blackroseMD1

"The first was incredible and it has been a while since I have played anything similar." - Anouk

"Really enjoyed the first, and R* always delivers such an enjoyable, playable world." - Waisted Menkey


"I've been dying to play a great spiritual successor to the Famicom Wars series, and it really seems like their art style and enthusiasm will make this quite the game to behold. The fact that it's getting an entire campaign creator rather than simply being able to create maps show they really care about the genre as a whole and want to offer something new to it. While they are having some delays right now since they want to make sure the final product is an entirely enjoyable one, they seem very confident in a 2018 release around Q2." - Aesthemic


Metro Exodus

"Because it's Metro but with more open world stuff. Glorious Soviet Fallout." - Anon

Fire Emblem Switch

"I always look forward to the new FE games and Nintendo usually is pretty good about DLC and micro transactions so I’m hoping for just a great RPG although, I am hoping for less dating sim elements than the past few entries have had." - Chris H

Iron Harvest

"It will be spiritual successor to Dawn of War 2 and Company of Heroes, and I love those games" - Arghast19

Age of Empires Remastered

"Great game from my youth. Best game in the series." - TheHangedMan

Dark Souls Remastered Edition

"I liked the original release. Hope the remaster fixes the glaring technical issues the original had. Framerate seems to have been fixed." - Panil Eiros

"Nintendo Switch portability and PS4 60fps/enhancements" - Anon


"Looked phenomenal at E3, liked the idea of the mech suits and persistent open world, cautiously optimistic about the game." - Anon
