    The title says it all...

    I'm curious as to what people are hyped about for each of the systems:

    - PC
    - Mac
    - 360
    - PS3
    - Rev/GCN

    For me it would be:
    - Zelda: Twighlight Princes [Rev/GCN]
    - BioShock [360] (This is the "spritual successor" to System Shock!)
    - Too Human [360]
    - 'Square-Enix Shooter' [360] (Hoping this will be a new Einhander!)
    - Dark Sector [360/PS3]
    - Battle Angel Alita [360/PS3]
    - Project Offset [360/PC]
    - Shenmue Complete [360] (rumoured)
    - Halo 3 [360]

    I guess it's easy to tell why I picked up a 360.

    You'll also notice all the PS3 games that interest me are also coming to 360. I look at the titles announced for PS3 and I mostly see a bunch of sequels (many on #4 or 5) and I'm honestly bored of that. There are some sequels I have listed, I am a huge Zelda fan and my and friends have a huge amount of fun getting together for 8-player Halo.

    Revolution I just haven't seen yet... the idea of NEW genres and gameplay excite me, just haven't seen or heard enough to add them to my list.

    Gah! Plymouth
    MP 3, the next set of Mario sports games, Battlefront 3, the next Republic Commando, Zelda Twilight Princess and Phantom Hour Glass. SSB as well

    And if Shenmue Complete does in fact only come out for 360 i will cry and get a 360 just for that single game. God did i love the DC games

    Metroid Prime 3- The first two Prime games have gotten me addicted, this is without a doubt my most anticipated game.:eek:
    Twilight Princess- It's a Zelda game, how can you not be drooling over it??:p
    Red Steel- I've never really been that into FPS, but after reading a bit about it, the concepts behind the game like respect seem to have caught my attention.
    Super Mario Rev. (Mario 128?)- A sequel to Super Mario 64 is long overdue.;)
    Super Smash Bros. Revolution- With online play I think it will be a must have.:)
    Animal Crossing Revolution- The first two game are on the right track, but there is still a lot missing, in my honest opinion. Hopefully the Rev version will add a bit more complexity to the series.:)
    MVP Baseball 2006 (2007?)- It'll be interesting to see what they can do with the Revs controller...
    And yes, if you can't already tell I am eagerly awaiting the Rev. Gotta love those first party games.:) :cool:

    1 real game and 3 that have not been announced yet:

    1) Unreal Tournament 2007

    2)Starcraft 2
    3)Knights of the Old Republic 3
    4)An off-roading game with awesome graphics and physics. Can be either racing (like 4x4 Evo) or "adventures" (like 4x4 Off-Road Adventure, but the action happening in Russia :D)

    EDIT: all of the above for Mac, of course :)

    Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
    Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
    Metroid Prime 3
    Super Smash Bros. Revolution
    Pokémon Diamond
    Resident Evil 5

    By the way, guess who ended up getting an E3 Pass? :)

    Turns out that DigiPen did in fact get 25 free passes. About 75 people signed up for them and there was a drawing and I got chosen!

    So can't wait to go to E3 to check out the above games (the ones that are shown), try out Revolution and PS3, and check out Matt Casamassina's new MacBook Pro. :)

    Can't believe no one is mentioning Heroes of Might and Magic V all the more so that it went GOLD today and so hopefully the Mac port which the good old folks up at Freeverse are working on should follow suit very soon. Gonna pick up a lot of awards this year this game ;)

    Fighting to stay in the EU
    Not buying a PS3 or 360 for lackluster reasons. Looking to buy a Rev, possible a DS Lite but only when my DS dies. Which running off how well I take care of hardware - never. Oh, but I'm building a new super PC later this year to run Vista games. Once again I won't be needing a powerful console.

    Metroid Prime 3. Metroid Prime being, IMO, the best game series yet.
    Red Steel. Swords and guns with a gyro controller :D :D
    Twilight Princess.
    Smash Bros Rev. With online play, my girlfriend will never be safe.
    Phantom Hourglass.
    Animal Crossing Rev. Been playing the DS one again. This game was built for a gyro controller.

    But, more than anything, ever.

    Mario 128. I have a feeling we're going to get something about this game at E3. After a stint in development as long as Duke Forever, with gameplay that's been kept secret. I think it might be pretty damn good :)

    Zelda: Twilight Princess for the Gamecube
    Halo 3 - can it tempt me to buy a 360?!
    A new Mario game for the Revolution

    jimmi: Nearly all of your most anticipated games are on Revolution... why get spend the case to build a 'super pc' then? You didn't list one "most anticipated" PC game! :D

    I'm surprised at how much of what everyone is looking forward to is A) the same. and B) sequels.

    Hopefully these sequels turn out great... but when they have gotten as high as #4 and 5 I figure the isn't a whole lot of hope of getting something fresh/new. Fans already know what they want, so studios are pressured to not change things...

    That said I'm sure I'll like plenty of them, it's just they are low on my Hype meter since I've played the previous ones.

    Zelda, on the other hand, that always seems to different enough to remain fresh! :D

    I had totally forgot handheld games at all.... the DS Zelda and Mario games coming look sweet. Especially the new Mario! I'd rather play new retro-style sequels then play the original classics that I beat 10 times already...
