Another year has come to a close, this time without the looming fear of a Mayan apocalypse. It’s fascinating to contemplate everything that’s happened in the industry throughout 2013. So many fantastic titles were localized. RPG fans have been inundated with so many high quality titles, I can barely keep count. All three next gen consoles were revealed, then hyped…and now they’re all out in the wild. And all three promise to bring greatness/jump ahead of the competition next year. This isn’t to say that all of our lists feature exclusives to the Wii U, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One either! There’s more variety than I was expecting. Turns out when you give folks some creative freedom, they go wild.

The oprainfall Staff will bring you all kinds of “Game(s) of the Year” coverage and look backs at 2013 throughout the months of December and January (led by Editorial Head Jeff Neuenschwander), but it’s my honor to usher in our Most Anticipated Games of 2014.

Be sure to check out everyone’s lists! It’s fascinating to look back at last year’s to see how everything panned out, too. But don’t worry; there are plenty of new faces showing off the games they’re most excited for. Without further ado, here they are:
