We Want Your Help Choosing The Most Anticipated Games For The Global Game Awards

Written by Stuart Thomas on Mon, Nov 2, 2015 3:35 PM

Okay everyone, we’re in the process of putting the nominations together for this year’s Global Game Awards, but we’ve stumbled onto a bit of a thorny issue. Next year’s game line-up is borderline insane, and so keeping the list of Most Anticipated Game down to just eight is proving a tricky task. That’s where you come in.

We want to know, out of the games below, which ones you’re most looking forward to over the next 12 months. There’s some massive games and we can only squeeze in eight, so with your help and gaming know how, we’re going to get together the final list of most anticipated games.

It’s been tough but a few cuts have had to be made and we’ve narrowed it down to a few key candidates. There’s a few others right on the border though, so it would be cool if you could pick between Uncharted 4, Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, Mass Effect: Andromeda and XCOM 2. Only two of these are going to through to the final voting at the Global Game Awards 2015, which is going live soon.

You’ve got two votes so pick your two favourites below and let us know why!

Which are your two most anticipated games?

Really Zilincan? How long have you been here?
The purpose of the article is as follows.
It is getting very close to the Global Game Awards. This will go live soon here on GD for everyone to get involved with and cast their votes, so the whole world can see what is the best of the year according to our lovely community.
And so - we were having trouble narrowing down the nominees for the award category "Most anticipated Game of 2016". We didnt know which 2 of the above 4 games we should pick to add to the other games we have already selected as nominees for that particular award.
So I asked Stu to ask everyone on GD and get more of GD's input on the matter, to help us select those final two nominees for that award.
And contrary to your opinion about this article, hundreds of people got involved and shared their thoughts. We now have the final 2 nominees for the category "Most anticipated Game of 2016", Mass Effect and Mirrors Edge and they will be displayed in our upcoming Global Game Awards in a handful of days, along with tonnes of other things to vote on. We have spent absolutely ages writing up and cataloging and building the next GGA so that everyone can have a load of fun.
I hope that helps clarify things for you.
Thanks to Irtesam above for being a prime example of normal GD members and help explain what GD is about. And thanks to everyone else for casting their mini vote to help us put together the HUGE voting fun that is known as the Global Game Awards.
We are nearly there. Thanks F

You can downvote me if you like but... how did these end up being "the most anticipated"?


I'm not saying they're any bad, but we have got to be serious here...

Well... some games are highly anticipated because their predecessors we greatly liked and people want a similar and hopefully improved experience

To to make a slight observation; the reason why only these games are the only ones up for selection, they have the hype train going, it has been stated that 2016 will be the calendar release year, also that the other heavy hitters have yet to make that commitment.

Please read my above message and also re-read the article above again for more clarity. This is just a small sample that we wanted some help choosing between. as we put together the much bigger Global Game Awards.
The Global Game Awards is a massive annual event that we spend months sorting out and developing, so all of us in the GD community can get involved and vote on everything that we feel means something to us about the gaming industry during the past year. F

Where's total war Warhammer fantasy? I realise its a bit of a tired concept but I think the new fantasy and magical elements will give it new life and be very entertaining to those new to total war.


I also love xcom. its always full of tense excitement on higher difficulty settings and is satisfying even if lose!

They're all sequels and reboots, you can reserve your judgment but there are a lot of games coming in 2016. Why these titles specifically? There's even a ps4 title on a PC Centric site.

For me it's Mass Effect Andromeda and XCOM 2. Though I didn't like Mass Effect 3 much I hope Andromeda can make up for it. And I loved the last XCOM.

I am similarly apathetic to these titles. Except maybe Uncharted 4, but even then I'm magnitudes more excited for Fallout 4.

Well I think they were referring to titles dropping in 2016, since Fallout 4s release is so close they didn't put it on this list. Either way there are alot of great games coming out in 2016 and this list feels really.......limited.

Wait, nevermind about Uncharted 4 I mixed it up with Just Cause 3. I guess I really don't care about these four choices, but I agree, there are far more games in 2016 better than the ones on this list.
