Hard to do with so many good games slated for release, especially PS3 exclusives. So, whats on your radar?

For me it's:
  • Twisted Metal
  • Journey (PSN)
  • Starhawk

Honorable mention to Bioshock Infinite & Last Guardian (hopefully).

After ME1 & ME2, I'm done with the ME universe. I'm not a big fan of the Bioshock games, but Infinite looks promising

Now playing: Destiny, Madden, Diablo 3, PvZ: GW
Recently Finished: Infamous: First Light, Watch Dogs

Love me some 3rd person action gaming. These all about equal for me in my anticipation level. I have SSX pre-ordered, the other 2 I'm looking to pre-order very soon.

I've played more Warhawk than any other game this generation, maybe combined as my gaming time has gone down significantly since having children. Played more SSX than anything else on the previous generation. So the newest iteration of both is a no brainer.

Twisted Metal just looks like the best console game ever.

On top of my head for PS3 it would be....

SSX and The Last Guardian.

I'll try to clear my backlog this year

The only one I'm really waiting for is Diablo 3 on PC.. after that I won't care for any other games for 10+ years

Whoa. Just realized those are all PS3 exclusives. I think that's a first. Well done, Sony.

I don't think Tomb Raider or Bioshock Infinite is going to hit in 2012. But would love to be wrong about that!

It's good to see soccer/football becoming a lot more popular here in the States.

Not sure about Tomb Raider (very little has been shown at this point), but Bioshock Infinite seems like a done deal. The press coverage ramped up in the fall. They've shown some very done-looking segments of the game, as well as a complete run-through of the combat mechanics. Just read a recent interview in gamesTM with Ken Levine. Sounds like they're pretty close. Something would have to go very wrong during development for BI to be delayed into 2013. Wouldn't be surprised if this hits in the middle of the year (May-August).

No one's mentioned Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, which should be out in October.

Is there no love for character-based platformers anymore?

I would've included Sly 4 in a top 5 list, along with LEGO Batman 2.
