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.

I expected Borderlands 2 fanbase to be larger D:
Nope... this definitely isn't how I'm ranking the Holiday season.
No Starhawk and no Last of Us..... I don't trust this guys judgement when it comes to PS3 games.
The PS3 list is so jacked up. Who is more excited about Prototype 2 over Bioshock Infinite? I poop on you Nielsen
Can't wait to see how Halo 4 is. My issue still needs to arrive in the mail.
seriously cannot wait for AC III =)
Most surprising is Call of Duty is not on anyone's list. People are finally tired of it?
Cant't wait for Assassins Creed 3!!
"On the Wii, people are excited about Madden 2013"
1 - Borderlands 2
2 - Bioshock Infinite
3 - Assassin's Creed III
4 - Far Cry 3
5 - Whatever Treyarch releases
6 - GTA V (if it comes)
7 - Medal of Honor: Warfighter
The rest do not even matter. I stopped playing Halo a very long time ago and simply don't care about it anymore. I don't even know what Prototype is and I really don't care to. This is gonna be another crazy fall season.
Um... hello?! Darksiders 2? Are you people stupid or something?
Wow i am surprised that Bioshock is not higher
my top anticipated games are:
Assassin's Creed 3
The Last of Us
Black Ops 2
Assassions Creed 3
Obviously moving forward as I find it hard to believe that ME3 wasn't at the top of that list 2 months back.
So Borderlands 2 didn't make the list!
i totallyagree with this list
How is Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story so low on the list?
Damn it, everyone complains about the Wii not having hardcore games yet when they arrive you don't support them.
