Readers talk about what they anticipate to see introduced at The Game Awards subsequent week, from Star Wars Jedi: Survivor to Final Fantasy 16.

It’s The Game Awards on Thursday evening, the largest reveal occasion of the 12 months and, hopefully, an opportunity to see beforehand introduced video games in larger element and some model new titles for the primary time.

There’s little clue as to what shall be there however plenty of readers are hoping for Spider-Man 2 and some extra Sony bulletins, in addition to one other glimpse at Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom from Nintendo.

Final probability
I don’t actually care what I see so long as it’s one thing new from Sony. I don’t know what they’ve been enjoying at this 12 months, nevertheless it’s not been working for me. No information, no bulletins, no communication principally. Spider-Man 2 is meant to be out subsequent 12 months, and we all know nothing about it. There’s been whispers that Wolverine is additional alongside than thought and but we’ve heard even much less on that.

Those are my two minimums, however I additionally wish to lance the boil on The Last Of Us multiplayer and get Naughty Dog engaged on one thing extra fascinating, and then, lastly, have some new bulletins!

What has Sony been engaged on this 12 months? It have to be one thing. They will need to have half a dozen large video games, at the very least, in improvement however what are they and why they gained’t they inform us about them? The Game Awards is the final probability to search out out this 12 months however I’m undecided how assured I’m that it’ll occur.

Trust the Force
I’m actually hoping to study extra about Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and the opposite introduced Star Wars video games. As one other reader stated lately within the Inbox, it’s been ages since we’ve heard something and that was principally nothing. And but the sport is out subsequent spring? I demand extra info!

To be trustworthy, by no means thoughts The Games Awards and the ridiculous time they’re on, I’d wish to see Lucasfilm Games do their very own occasion and begin teasing all of the issues they’re engaged on. They’ve bought a bunch of Star Wars video games, Indiana Jones, and I actually hope extra authentic video games like the superb Return To Monkey Island.

I’d like to see Lucasfilm return to being an enormous writer once more and possibly The Game Awards would be the subsequent step in direction of that.
PS: I neglect that Ubisoft Star Wars recreation too, please present that!

No change
I don’t imply this to be as unfavourable as it would come throughout however my solutions to what I hope shall be on the 2022 recreation awards would in all probability have been the identical a 12 months in the past as they’re now.

A DLC announcement for Elden Ring can be nice. We all realize it’s going to come back ultimately, and most of us may guess what a trailer would seem like, so the one factor I’m actually ready for is a launch window or date. If it isn’t introduced now then there appears an excellent probability it gained’t be until a 12 months or extra after the sport’s launch, which might really feel a bit odd. But I’d say there’s nonetheless solely a 50:50 probability for information on the present.

Less doubtless, I feel, is a little more on Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom, though that might be my second very best factor. Not that I actually need any extra earlier than a correct displaying in a March or April Nintendo Direct, and at finest we might in all probability get one other one minute trailer simply now. I’d solely give {that a} 10% probability, although.

Maybe barely extra doubtless can be one thing large for PlayStation, like the primary correct trailer for Spider-Man 2. If there’s something like that, although, I’d solely anticipate one thing cinematic somewhat than correct gameplay.

Since Marvel’s Midnight Suns is now out the gate, I’ll give a really exterior probability of XCOM 3 being introduced, however Firaxis won’t wish to distract from the previous, contemplating its launch date is so late within the calendar.

Night on the motion pictures
I’d like to see some footage on a few licensed video games. Those being the Io Interactive James Bond recreation and the opposite being the MachineGames Indiana Jones recreation. I feel it’s extra doubtless that we are going to see one thing of the latter as, from reminiscence, that was introduced sooner than Io’s Bond recreation but in addition as a result of it has been so lengthy since MachineGames put out a recreation, that I’d think about and hope that they will need to have one thing to indicate by now.

I belief Io to do an incredible job with the Bond licence, it’s the first time since possibly Everything Or Nothing that I really feel as if an enormous AAA effort is being put right into a James Bond recreation and I’m all for it. I bear in mind the times when just about all licensed video games was terrible cash-ins nevertheless it actually appears that ever because the Batman: Arkham video games took off much more effort has been put into licensed video games.

I do know you continue to get video games like Gotham Knights, however I feel even with that I’ve little question Warner Bros. gave it a AAA funds to work with and was in improvement for an excellent few years, somewhat than only a couple for licensed video games of the PlayStation 1 and 2 period. My solely slight concern for the Bond recreation is that story has by no means been the robust go well with of Io’s Hitman video games, so hopefully they’ll enhance on that for Bond.

I’m an enormous fan of each Bond and Indy and really feel that each may make nice video games given the builders concerned and with them not being tied into any movies.

Now enjoying: Evil West (Xbox Series X)

GC: There’s an opportunity the Indiana Jones recreation might be tied into the brand new movie, at the very least tangentially. Which additionally makes it comparatively doubtless for a reveal.

All or nothing
The recreation I’m most wanting ahead to is a predictable alternative however Final Fantasy 16, I really feel that of the principle line collection 13 and particularly 15 have been going downhill and it is a big probability for the collection to show it round.

Firstly, the very fact it has been rated mature means it might be fairly a darkish entry in a hopefully significant means (and please as removed from Noctis edgelord mopey teen darkness within the earlier entry as you may get).

Secondly, the Game of Thrones vibe will both work extremely nicely or it gained’t, with little room for in between. It’s all been accomplished earlier than a number of instances, so both Final Fantasy will knock it out the park with an fascinating immersive take or it’ll be a uninteresting, bland recreation world.

Thirdly. and personally with rumours of a time skip, and so on. it will be nice to see some base constructing, or actual improvement, i.e. selections within the first act matter within the third, and so on.

To summarise, the sport will both be unbelievable or horrible, and for me I can’t wait to both be re-hooked into the collection or surrender totally.

PS: Thanks for score Front Mission 6/10, that saved me £30 earlier than Christmas.

No hope
I’d like to see The Elder Scrolls 6 probably the most however I feel there’s in all probability zero probability of that. I’m not even positive how a lot they’ll present of Starfield, though I feel that’s in all probability a given.

I’m additionally taken with seeing EA’s Marvel video games. I can’t bear in mind in the event that they had been a part of The Game Awards earlier than however they’re having an excellent run in the mean time and I’d wish to see them make extra of an effort with their video games and be rewarded for it.

That time of 12 months
The Games Awards are a enjoyable bunch of reveals however main reveals are in all probability going to be stored to the person writer’s reveals and similar with the console firms, however I’m positive we’ll get an excellent few exclusives.

Hogwarts Legacy, Dead Space remake, Octopath Traveler 2, Resident Evil 4 remake, and video games that are okay to disclose shall be seen, while the most important gaming publishers’ personal main showcase video games are stored for a later date.

The awards are, in fact, the principle a part of this present and Elden Ring and God of War: Ragnarök shall be possible contending favourites amongst others.

Starfield is the largest recreation for me subsequent 12 months and doubtlessly my predominant recreation to expertise, and that is probably not revealed an excessive amount of right here, particularly with any important content material, however I might be improper. Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom and, who is aware of, Dead Island 2 might be potentialities, although Dead Island 2 must be exceptionally higher than different comparable zombie parkour or sandbox kinds motion slashers.

I look ahead extra to the event and watching it on Twitch on Lirik’s stream however actually, I can’t imagine it’s this time of the 12 months once more and finally hoping for giant surprises and to show my modest emotions for the present into the wow issue. But I’ll proceed to manage my enthusiasm for now and await the top of 12 months celebrations of video games. Which to me is a very powerful a part of The Game Awards 2022.

GC: The Game Awards was the venue Microsoft used to announce the Xbox Series X, not to mention any video games. There barely are any particular person writer reveals anymore.
