10 GEARS OF WAR 3

Succeeds if Epic can deliver a coherent story that answers questions we didn't even know we had and the multiplayer matchmaking actually works.

Fails if the mistakes of the past return and no one can find their friends to play with online. Oh, and if Marcus cries at the end.

9 DEAD SPACE 2

Succeeds if the single-player mode gives people nightmares, and the multiplayer support complements the experience.

Fails if Clarke's quest for survival isn't as thrilling as the first Dead Space, or ends on yet another cliff-hanger.

8 L.A. NOIRE

Succeeds if solving cases isn't just about trial and error, but requires actual deductive skills.

Fails if the cool new MotionScan tech makes faces too real to the point of being a distraction.

7 CHILD OF EDEN

Succeeds if everything is perfectly polished and makes us as happy as the demos have.

Fails if the motion controls don't work as well as the regular controller.

6 DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION

Succeeds if Eidos Montreal capitalizes on the variety of play styles promised.

Fails if the story doesn't live up to Human Revolution's incredible premise and visual themes.

5 RAGE

Succeeds if it's as fun to play as it is to look at.

Fails if there isn't a satisfying conclusion to the otherwise stunning confrontations we've seen in trailers.

4 ELDER SCROLLS V: SKYRIM

Succeeds if it takes the tried-and-true formula to a new level with sidequests that tie into the main storyline.

Fails if if the bugs that plagued the earlier games come back in full force

3 PORTAL 2

Succeeds if the magic of the first Portal can be recreated.

Fails if the single-player campaign is just a regurgitation of scenarios found in its predecessor.

2 BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY

Succeeds if Rocksteady can expand on the first game's greatness.

Fails if you end up playing the entire game in Detective Mode again.

1 MASS EFFECT 3

Succeeds if your decisions from Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 actually matter and drastically change the way the game plays.

Fails if the Reapers only threaten humanity and you're stuck on Earth for the majority of the game.

make your own lists **** this one lol

I'm stoked for Gears 3 and Mass Effect 3, but I'm also eagerly anticipating LA Noire. That could be an oustanding game and mark a real advance in console gaming.

Notice how almost everything is a sequel. People could give a sh1t about originality anymore.
