I have a video game addiction – and I love it. I want to get hooked. I want that rush. I want that hit of dopamine. And I was hoping to get it from my PS4. So far, no luck.
Look, I tried Watch Dogs but was quickly disappointed with its lack of innovation. I happily bought and played the re-mastered Last of Us but that’s just tracing the outline of an old obsession. I sunk tons of hours into Destiny but immediately lost interest after the first DLC crash landed.
I’m still on the hunt for that new game that’ll keep me up until 3am on a Tuesday. Could my new fix come from one of these games releasing in 2015? Let’s hope so.
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number – The original was my favorite Vita game — I totally forgot I own a Vita — so I’m definitely looking forward to grabbing my bat, putting on my chicken mask and bashing in some brains.
Star Wars Battlefront – This year we might finally get the Star Wars movie we deserve. Could we be lucky enough to also get the Star Wars game we’ve been dreaming of too? It’s too early to tell but the force is strong in Battlefield developers DICE.
No Man’s Sky – This was the most talked about game of E3. It seems cool but will it be any fun to play? Here’s hoping it lives up to the hype.
Tom Clancy’s The Division – I don’t know what it is but games like this always get me. They’re also the ones that could disappoint me the most. Here’s hoping my first Tom Clancy game delivers everything it promises.
Borderlands: The Handsome Edition – Yet, of all the new games I just mentioned, this is the one I look forward to the most. I am a Borderlands addict. And they added 4-player split-screen? Hooray couch co-op!
I mean I can’t tell you how excited I am to start murdering with these guys again.
And for reference, here’s a list of everything else coming out this year.
What are you looking forward to?
