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.

And I thought I was the only one crazy about Max Payne 3
NO CALL OF DUTY!
I'm not sure how Madden is up there, but ok, I would think the Power of Two would take the spot.
Interesting list. Going to have to see how Nielsen's rated the video games for PS3.
I am anticipating only 4 of the games that appeared on the Xbox list. RE6, Bioshock infinite, Assassin's Creed 3, and Halo 4 . Surprised I didn't see Borderlands 2 or Witcher 2 cracking the top 10. I am also looking forward to South Park, Far Cry 3, GTA V (possibly in october), and Dragon's Dogma. There are gonna be a number of good games this year.
Fable: The Journey? Really? Wow...
What a BS list. Where's Transformers?
My personal top 10 list:
(I have a ps3)
1: Assassin's creed 3
2: The amazing Spider-man
3: Prototype 2
4: The last of us
5: Darksiders 2
7: Jak and Daxter collection
8: South Park the game
9: Max Payne 3
10: Mass effect 3
And then Black Ops 2 will be announced and take the first place. Unfortunately.
Bioshock is on the top of my list, followed by RE6.
AC3 for me :)
Fable: The Journey made the list at #7? As soon as I saw that I discounted the legitimacy of this list. No way that game is that high on this list and shouldn't even be on it.
Madden that high on the list? Bioshock Infinite at the bottom? No Last of Us on PS3?
The people who made this list obviously know nothing about video games.
Darksiders 2, then AC3 for me! :)
I, for one, am looking forward to some new announcements for PS Vita games... like c'mon!! I know we are all ready for an AC game on the damn thing!!Hell at this point, I'll settle for COD even... and that is saying something about this year's holiday season for the Vita.
