Man, I just browsed through a "2010 Preview" article on IGN, and it looks like my wallet is going to cry little wallet tears this year...

Games that look interesting to me as of now:

- God of War 3
- Heavy Rain
- The Last Guardian
- Mafia 2
- Red Dead Redemption
- Mod Nation Racers
- Skate 3
- Rage
- Dead Rising 2
- Bioshock 2
- Just Cause 2
- Dead Space 2 (EDIT: if they don't ruin it with their "OMG, needz more action!!1!" approach)
- Batman AA 2
- Agent (okay, really speculating here...)


And I only own ONE current gen console... :eek:

Will be picking up Bioshock 2 and Mass Effect 2 soon. Really, really excited for Fifa 2011... JK. No I'm really excited about Dead Rising 2. Only thing that could make me more excited would be Crackdown 2 :D

FFXIII is must buy (sadly)
I have been a FF fan since playing FF1 on the NES and I'm telling you I have serious concerns about FFXIII. As I continue to read about it's linear gameplay, the ability to only control 1 character at a time and there not being any towns to travel to... well I am not sure how this is much a FF game outside of Aeons and Chocobos. Heck I bet you they don't even have a worthy Cid (NPC) this time around. This upcoming title seems more of a gimmick to make a quick buck than deliver a worthy game.
