Could 2015 End Up Being The Year 2014 Should've Been?
Many will agree that overall, 2014 was a relatively disappointing year.
A bunch of huge games got delayed and many others just didn't blow us away, as we expected them to do.
Personally, I'm not complaining. I never have any shortage of games to play, so delays and a few minor letdowns aren't enough to disappoint me. But there are plenty of gamers out there who disagree and so, that being the case, I'm wondering if 2015 will be the year 2014 probably should've been.
Not only will some of 2014's original high-profile productions like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Battlefield: Hardline and Batman: Arkham Knight arrive in the first quarter, but other major titles could be truly "next-gen." Sony's PlayStation 4 might finally enforce its powerful will with exclusives like Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Bloodborne, and The Order: 1886, while other major third-party games are scheduled as well. Besides, now that developers are starting to focus entirely on the new consoles (and they're not forced to make a game work on two different generations of hardware), the experiences should, by default, get better.
Do you have high expectations for next year? Will it easily outstrip this year?
