Most Anticipated games of E3

I love E3 for more than just the Sony and Microsoft press conferences.  For me a lot of the multiplatform games really get me excited.  As a huge sports fan, being able to see some news about the upcoming titles from EA Sports and others gets me super excited and it also starts the wave of information we get before said sports games are released.  Not to mention developers like Ubisoft, Activision, and Bethesda can bring surprise announcements for games that look amazing.  This article will try and talk about the most anticipated games we know about as well as rumored titles that may surprise us.

·         NHL 15
o   The first next gen hockey game will hopefully bring more info including a full game play trailer with it to E3.  NHL 07 was a good game after skipping the first year of next gen, and hopefully it will be the same with NHL 15
·         Lord of the Rings: Shadow of Mordor
o   I am a huge fan of Lord of the Rings, and if this can bring any of the feeling that the game play in The Two Towers game had, I am all over this!  Here’s to getting a game play demo or two throughout the week.

·         Star Wars
o   Another epic franchise that has a few games in development.  Will we see the new battlefront?  Or how about the game Amy Hennig is working on?  Please give Star Wars fans something to look forward to away from the new movie.

·         The Last Guardian
o   Will we finally get a release date?!?!?!?!?  Seriously, this has to be it for the game, either announce the release date or just cancel it already!

·         Naughty Dog
o   We all know about Uncharted 4 already, but what about the second mystery game they are in pre-production on?  Will we get an actual game play trailer for Uncharted?  This should have every Sony fan super hyped about!

·         Sony First Party
o   There are at least seven Sony Developers working on next gen games that have yet to be announced.  What could developers like Sony bend, Media Molecule, and Sony Santa Monica be up to?  It is killing Sony fans all over!
·         Sequels
o   What games will have sequels announced at E3?  Mass Effect? Bio Shock? Killzone? Gears of War?

These are just a handful of possible games and titles that could be shown or announced at E3.  What are you looking forward to most?
