42. Mafia 2 - Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, May/June

Is this the thinking man's GTA? Well, these days Rockstar would probably argue that GTA is the thinking man's GTA, but there's no doubt that that 2K Czech are cooking up something special. The fictional city of Empire Bay looks to be packed with mouth-watering detail, and since the game's plot unfolds over the course of 10 years, we'll get to explore both a 1940s and a 1950s version of it. Then there's Vito Scaletta, our Sicilian antihero, and the cast of gangster heels who surround him. The first Mafia was renowned for its adult storyline, and from what we've seen so far, this follow-up should offer a similarly heavy punch to our emotional guts. Expect violence, betrayal, and plenty of natty suits. Badda bing!

41. Dante's Inferno - Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, February 9

Make no mistake about it: Dante's Inferno is the most blatant God of War clone we've seen. Don't hold that against the Visceral Games developed hack 'n' slash too much, though, as it's looking like being a highly entertaining game. It's got all the ingredients of a successful mainstream release in the genre: violence, unique setting, stylish visuals, welcoming controls and giant enemies. The demo is out now so you've no doubt already sampled the brawling that'll be on offer come February. We weren't convinced to begin with, but now we reckon console gamers (especially 360 owners who won't be getting God of War 3 in a few months) should definitely keep an eye on Dante's Inferno.

I'm looking forward to the new Alien vs Predator game. A little concerned that it is Rebellion at the helm in developing it though.

For me...

Alan Wake (just to see if they will ever finish and release it).

Also BioShock 2, Dead Rising 2, Dead Space 2, Deus Ex 3, Fable III, Fallout: New Vegas, God of War III, Mass Effect 2, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (will Ubisoft learn like they did with Assassin's Creed?), Splinter Cell: Conviction and Super Mario Galaxy 2.

A lot of sequels in the list, I know. :(

My main ones for this year are Gran Turismo 5 and The Last Guardian, though it hasn't been mentioned if that will make it or not this year.

I will also be buying;
Heavy Rain
Alan Wake(depending on reviews and a demo)
GOWIII
Modnation Racers
MAG(depending on reviews and another go on the beta if possible)
Probably one of the football games
The new F1 game
Crackdown 2(when it's discounted)

So a pretty good year if they all make it. I'll probably pick up more games as the year goes on.

I'm definately gonna get Mass Effect 2 and Bioshock 2. Probably get Bad Company 2 and Dead Rising 2 aswell. AvP is looking great though.

Mass Effect 2
Two Worlds: The Temptation
Final Fantasy XIII
Alpha Protocol
Crackdown 2
Record of Agarest War
Medal of Honor: Beardy Guy

Those are the only games that are tingling my gamey senses at present, and only ME and FF are definites so far. Probably a good thing too, I'm still playing catch up on my older games as far back as 2007.

Love the description for 'Total War: Napoleon'. Made me :D

I only recently picked up 'Empire' in Steam's winter sale and I'm loving every minute of it. So, I'm one of those who can't wait for Napoleon to turn up.

AvP is looking brilliant. Besides looking brilliant comes down to how much fun and the fear it drives into the player when playing as Marine determines it fate with me.

Dante's Inferno is a goooood hack & slasher! Been playing the demo a lil bit and I am impressed by it. This one will sneak up on people on how good it is.
