26. The Elder Scrolls Online April 4th (PC, Consoles At A Later Date)
Im fairly certain that this is one thats been a long time coming, considering just how mouth-wateringly tantalizing the concept alone sounds. Gamers love exploring rich and vast fantasy universes especially when theyre as massive as Skyrim so the prospect of partying up with friends and doing so in an MMO-structured game is appealing. As someone who doesnt even play MMOs, even I must admit Im interested in trying this one out.
25. Destiny September 9th (PS3, PS4, XBO, 360)
Lets not kid ourselves here; we are being sold on this one from the Bungie name. What gamer isnt interested in seeing what the top-notch development studio follows Halo up with? Fortunately for us, Destiny also looks like incredibly fun and ambitious, resembling a far more advanced take on Borderlands. The art style still screams Halo but that isnt necessarily a bad thing. Ultimately, Im just sensing that Bungie is going to hit it out of the park again.
24. The Witness Q1 (PS4)
Jonathan Blow created and developed Braid by himself; a puzzle platformer that is arguably solely responsible for kickstarting a mainstream acceptance in indie games. His next game is a first person adventure titled The Witness. It also looks fairly unique and creative, offering an open world with no predetermined order to complete various stages of puzzles. Furthermore, its artstyle and environments are relaxingly gorgeous and invite a sense of wonder. The Witness is potentially another indie masterpiece.
