9. The Last Guardian [PlayStation Only]
This is a game which will only be available for Sony’s PlayStation, so sorry for other console users. A few days ago, the rumor spread that this game was going to be cancelled, but Sony has now confirmed that it will be released in 2012.
The Last Guardian‘s story is of a yet-to-be-named boy who is trying to escape from a setting resembling the ruins of a large expansive castle. The game will revolve around the developing friendship between the boy and a giant, feathered creature resembling a griffin named Trico.
You like the trailer? Then hang on, as it is coming soon in 2012.
8. Halo 4
Luckily, we also have the trailer of this game so no wait to have a glimpse at the next title of the Halo trilogy. Microsoft announced the development of Halo 4 at E3 2011, as the first entry in a new Halo trilogy. This trilogy has been announced to be called the Reclaimer Trilogy.
Halo 3 was a huge hit, and this one is hoped to be too, so start waiting for the next one in the Halo series.
7. BioShock Infinite
BioShock Infinite is the third title in the series, and is being by developed by Irrational Games for a 2012 release. The story does not continues the story of the previous game, and takes place at a earlier period with a different plot.
The player assumes the identity of Booker DeWitt, a disgraced former agent of the Pinkerton National Detective Agency, who was dismissed for behavior beyond the acceptable bounds of the Agency. He is hired by mysterious individuals, aware of Columbia’s location, and tasked to infiltrate the air-city and rescue a young woman named Elizabeth, who has been held aboard the air-city for the last twelve years.
The story is pretty complex and has many turns in it. The player would have to keep up with the story if he wants to continue playing it.
6. Fifa 13
EA Sports has been pretty successful with its Fifa series, especially with Fifa 12, in which it completely redefined the game. So Fifa 13 would likely keep the glory of its predecessor with better gameplay and graphics.
Lets hope Electronic Arts doesn’t disappoint.
5. Max Payne 3
Rockstar Games, the multi-billion games publisher, is trying to get back the old glory of the Max Payne series with Max Payne 3. Remember the days, when Max Payne was the most preferred third-person shooter? Well now is the time for Rockstar to introduce a successor to the Max Payne series.
The game(as shown in the trailer) has great reflexes and graphics, and allows a player to fire while jumping or diving too. The AI in the game is pretty good too, making it a perfect shooter game!
This game is hoped to land in March 2012.
4. Infinity Blade III [iOS Only]
The Infinity Blade series has been a gold mine for Chair Entertainment Group, LLC and is easily the best game in iOS with absolutley brilliant graphics. The second game in the series, Infinity Blade II has also continued to be the best game for iOS and was claimed the IGN game of 2011 (We also mentioned it in our list of top 10 iOS games of 2011).

The trailer(above) shows that this one will feature a different city, will have beautiful sceneries and possibly players would also be able to fly planes(as there is a glimpse of an plane in the trailer).

The announcement was made by the company during their E3 press conference.
A classic car combat designed and simulated by David Jaffe is the next in stock. Jaffe has proved himself to be the best when it comes to simulating gameplay and making it fun to the highest imaginable extent.
Though the combat is going to be the latest version of the one released so many years ago for the play station but with better features and support for PS3. The game is expected to engage the gamers in itself and provide them with the fun they are looking for with its inventive multiplayer modes and other innovations for you guys to discover.
The game is the very first independent venture of Insomniac; independent from the Sony co. with which it used to collaborate before. Though the info about the game’s gameplay is yet to come out, but the track record of the developing team is way too good to drag people to stores. Their previous work on the franchise like Resistance and Ratchet has elucidated one thing that they are the best when it comes to design game weapons and resources. Overstrike is also expected to come up with the most innovative guns and shooters gamers have ever experienced.
Final Fantasy XIII-2
Square has always been quite popular with gamers, but the Final Fantasy XIII was a disappointment. But hoping that the team at square has taken all the criticism they earned from their last venture, to heart, we can expect that they gain the confidence of their customers back from the direct sequel of Final Fantasy. Since the games of this genre are quite few and far between, if the things work out good for Square, the game can win a huge success for them.
Metal Gear Solid: Rising
Rising is out of news for quite some time now which is indeed alarming.MGS2 wasn’t really liked by the gamers for the characters feminine whim, but this transformation into a more macho sort of character in MGS4 made every one fall in love with the game and the Raiden himself the awesome combat system to butcher away enemies and the transformation of Raiden is something you should count on this game for.
The Last Guardian
Some developers are the reason why gaming isn’t just a kill time thing but much more than that. They go out of the way to put so much into the graphics, design and gameplay that earns them the respect of the professional gamers who deem the games worth their time. The team behind ICO and Shadow of Clossus is one of them. The team’s abilities to give realization to the story line and an emotional and mesmerizing touch is only their royalty. The Last Guardian holds great expectations of the gamer’s community.
