Halo 4

The Microsoft unveiling is still another 12 days away, though details have been seeping out regarding what might be showing up at the widely-anticipated reveal on May 21st. Regardless of what might appear, here’s what we want to show up on the release slate for October or November (or whenever the damn thing ends up coming out!) Naturally, a lot of the games are sequels, but I’m also counting on a few surprises; perhaps a few games we thought were dead, and some that we wouldn’t expect to be showing up on a next-generation console.

As always, a next-gen console launch is an extremely exciting time to be a gamer. How’s about Microsoft really gives us something to be excited about and delivers these 10 games I am crossing my fingers for. Here are 10 launch titles we want announced for the Xbox 720 (or Durango, or Fusion, or whatever it’s going to eventually be called!)

 

 

10. Project Gotham Racing 5

It’s almost become a cliche now in its commonality, but the big-hitters in the console world will almost always release a racing game as a launch title, largely because they’re a great way to show off the graphical capabilities of the platform. One series that has performed rather reliably for Microsoft is the Project Gotham Racing franchise, originally an offshoot of the Dreamcast’s Metropolis Street Racer series that has now become its own respectable outlet.

For the first time in over a decade, Microsoft recently renewed the Gotham trademark, and the above image posted by Lucid Games has caused many to think that they will be coming aboard for what will surely be a bold re-invention of the franchise. Perhaps a move away from the statistics and Kudos-based aspects of the previous games towards more mayhem-based thrills is the way forward?
