The lights are on
Nielsen has ranked the games that gamers are most excited about this year, and the results aren't surprising.
In the lead for Xbox 360 is Halo 4. On the PlayStation 3, Assassin's creed III. On the Wii, people are excited about Madden 2013. Surprisingly low on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3's lists, is BioShock Infinite falling tenth and ninth respectively. What's really interesting about these lists, is seeing which games are creating more excitement on which consoles. For example, PlayStation 3 gamers are looking forward to Prototype 2, which is number seven on the list, but on Xbox 360 it doesn't even show up in the top 11.

But we all know that the as of yet unannounced Call of Duty is what people are really waiting for, unless people suddenly realized they're just going to be paying $60 for a brand new set of multiplayer maps.
Wow, terrible list, people are excited about kinect star wars, fable and most of the movie tie in wii games?
1. Resident Evil 6
2. BioShock Infinite
3. Tomb Raider
4. Assassins Creed 3
5. The Last of Us
I would've preferred Xenoblade for the Wii, since it has nothing good
I'm not that excited for Halo 4, most looking forward to AC3
I am actually looking forward to Prototype 2, I enjoyed the first for what it was and hope they do a lot better (with the story and balancing boss health on higher difficulties).
Madden is a given because people are obsessed with spending 60 bucks to buy a slight variation of a game they already own ten times over
Cannot believe that Xenoblade got only 50%.
Well, I suppose ME3 is already out, so they didn't include it. Cause that was my personal #1 game for 2012.
I'm also really looking forward to Halo 4, the Witcher 2, and Tomb Raider.
Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, X-com, Resident Evil 6, South Park RPG
Bioshock Infinite, The Last of Us, Halo 4...that's pretty much it for me.
Surprised that Bioshock was on the bottom of the list.
LOL I love how no one even rags on the Wii anymore, it's just completely ignored, like it's not even worth discussion.
I admit Prototype 2 sort of fell off my radar for a while but I'm still excited to see how it compares to the original.
I'm mainly looking forward to Assassin's Creed 3 and Resident Evil 6 but I haven't forgotten about Bioshock Infinite.
Where's last of us? It has to be on there for PS3.
robblerobblerobble-MY FAV GAEM NO ON LIST!? INJUSTICE!!!
