With 2010 about to kick off, the G4tv.com and X-Play teams took a look at the games set to release (or are likely to) in the next year. What follows is a list of the top 5 most anticipated games for each editor. How will it compare to your personal list? Which games will live up to the hype? Which games are you looking forward to? Leave your list in the comments section.

Rob Manuel -- Associate Producer, X-Play

Last Guardian

The Last Guardian

Most gamers know Team Ico for their beautifully haunting landscapes, their quirky but always inspiring gameplay, and taking their sweet time producing their next masterpiece. A veil of mystery still surrounds The Last Guardian, a game that seemingly combines the companion aspect of Ico with the giant climbing action of Shadow of the Colossus. While the release date may slip into 2011, I will be patiently waiting to get back into a world that could only be designed by Team Ico.



Okamiden

To not already love Okamiden, the sequel to Okami and perhaps the most charming DS game next year, is to have a solid chunk of coal pumping prune juice through the frail body you call a life. It has yet to be seen if this younger Okami still has the puzzle and action chops of his big sister, but seeing the brush mechanics delivered to a system that can actually make them accurate is highly encouraging. Also, it’s super adorable.

Epic Mickey

Epic Mickey

When the pictures leaked of a super secret project involving Warren Spector and a certain animated mouse, people flipped. These were not your ordinary saccharine sweet portraits, but post-apocalyptic, steam-punked versions of the characters from the old Disney Cartoons. The fact that they’re bringing back Oswald as a main character to the game make me believe that these crazy kids might be on the right track.

Fez

This little man in a little red hat has been buzzing around the indie world for some time. Mix the concept of Crush and a little 8-bit platforming and what you get is an amalgamation so hip that you might need tight pants just to play it. You can check out some of the released tracks at http://polytroncorporation.com/

Golden Sun DS

If you played the original duo on the GBA, then you would already be excited for one of the best RPG series to ever grace the handheld. Stop asking silly questions. Go demand a pre-order from your local gaming emporium.

Batman: Arkham Asylum 2

Not really sure if this game is actually going to come out in 2010, but I can only hope. Based on the new teaser trailer, it looks like there’s going to be big doings in Gotham. I only hope they add more of the villains that were only casually represented in the first game.

BioShock 2

BioShock 2

I’ve been dying to get back to Rapture ever since I finished the first game. Just the idea of taking on splicers again and meeting the enigmatic Big Sister make me very excited to play this game.

Red Dead Redemption

I’m a sucker for a good western game, and the original Red Dead Revolver was one of the best. My only complaint with the original is that it wasn’t long enough, but that doesn’t appear to be an issue with this new Rockstar game, which appears to be mammoth in its scope.

Green Day: Rock Band

Yes, I know that it doesn’t look like a biggie to most of you, but I can only imagine how much fun it will be to play all of “American Idiot” from front to back. Prepare your wrist for some very heavy, very fast strumming.

Darksiders

Come on. You get to play as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse? How can you not want to play this game? And the good thing is that it’s going to come out relatively soon in 2010, so I don’t have to wait long to see how it is.


Albert Iskander – Segment Producer, X-Play

MAG

MAG

256 players online, guns a-blazin’, people screaming over headsets, and mass chaos. How can you resist?

Splinter Cell Conviction

Jason Bourne done right. 

Lost Planet 2

I was one of the few people that loved the first one. Add in 4 player co-op campaign, gigantic beasts, and I’m sold. Who’s teaming up with me?

God of War III


Do I really need to explain why I’m looking forward to this?

Epic Mickey


It’s going to be better than Kingdom Hearts.

Stephen Johnson -- Lead Editor, TheFeed

Heavy Rain

Heavy Rain

If this game is as effective as the hype for it has been, it really might change the game industry. But even if it ends up being an interesting failure or a curiosity, at least it will be something different.

Red Dead Redemption

Grand Theft Auto in Sergio Leone’s Old West might be the best idea for a video game ever. I’ve always wanted to be a cowboy, but I was born in the wrong century, so this game will have to do.

Fallout: New Vegas

Fallout 3 is among my favorite video games of all time, and while I realize the semi-sequel has been farmed out to Obsidian as opposed to being developed in-house at Bethesda, I don’t care. I’m still completely looking forward to it.

Rock Band 3

While the music game genre may be quickly dying up in terms of sales, by next year it will have been around long enough to have completely dialed in everything that makes rhythm games awesome. Rock Band 3 (if it comes out in 2010) may well be the music game genre’s high point and swan song at once.

The Last Guardian

There’s nothing I can say about this game that the below trailer won’t say better.
