So I have a bit of free time.. so I decided to post my gaming wish list of (mostly) 2008 releases.
All those games are for PC as you may notice, as the latest console i own is a dusty old ps2. The entries are filed by descending order of me wanting them.

Half Life 2: Episode 3
The 3rd and final Installment in VALVe’s episodic gaming content.This closing chapter is promising in both story, and the gameplay departments, and is going to be a hit in the already existing, pretty huge, fan base.

Left 4 Dead
Like all those zombie movies like “dawn of the dead” where a group of folks get trapped together in a zombie infested environment and need to work together to get to a better place with supplies or just get the fuck out. Well I know that at least I found that situation exiting, well minus the danger of actually dying – Left 4 Dead is exactly that. Think of it as a rollercoster – you get the cool adrenaline shot without the danger of been killed.

Fallout 3
Let me first state that I am a HUGE fan of the fallout series so far (even liked the tactics game). Now that e3 has come and gone and the first gameplay video has been released I have been more sceptical on this one. First of all there is no top-down-third-person mode for it to look like the originals, second of all, and a bit more disturbing is the fact that by the look of the video there doesn’t appear to be a consistent turn-based battle, but a “press button to use turn-based targeting system”. I don’t know how good this will work but as a fan I’m definitely getting the game and trying it for myself.

Grand Theft Auto 4 – PC
The tradition of releasing a GTA game to the consoles first is a long lasting one, but that tradition also includes releasing that game for the PC a few month later. Thus far there appears to be no announcement of such, but I keep hoping and waiting.

Spore, the little creature maturing in EA’s MAXIS. I have been following this one back from the beginning of it and it seems to promise a lot of new and innovation. I still do not know how I will feel about the game after I play it and it all depends on it’s playability and replayability – how interesting or boring will it be to play the “live your creature” game and how much will I want to go through it over and over again.

Starcraft 2
I am a big RTS fan since my first PC (Total Annihilation) and still am (replaying Warcraft 3 from time to time), so I will really want to check out the new release from Blizzard. I haven’t played the first installment so I am not as exited as everyone and their mother but I am still looking forward to playing it.

Subversion and The Crossing
Both I know very little about but both seem to promise some very new and innovative gaming.. so I am looking forward for some info on those two as well as trying them out myself.

If you have some games you are looking for or just want to discuss the ones I mention feel free to leave a comment.
