    Red Dead Redemption!!

  • Albhcigfhbjbc  

    Red Dead!

  • eli_fjr  

    Still playing Fallout 4. 100+ hrs!

  • eli_fjr  

    Cant wait to play most of these next year. #XBX

  • minibeans  

    Can't wait for storm Blood to be released!

  • Kaprawiec  

    Vamsi_Nalluri - Employee alert Lol dude either you are owner of UBI or youre high.
    Games You listed are all most boring of eight generation consoles. Especially Far Cry Primal, damn it was one pointless, boring, idiotic game.
    And theyre nowhere near the best games of 8 gen, with score ratings +- 7/10
    Just try to compare any of Ubi games to The Witcher 3, Ni-Oh, Nier, GTA, Overwatch, Diablo 3, Uncharted, Titanfall 2 and the list goes on...
    And to prove my point - check the best alltime ps4 games by metascore - in the first 100 there is 1 (!) game from ubi, and its re-release from last gen Rayman Legends... Wow i didn't realize that the ubi games got that bad. Last truly great game from Your company was Far Cry 3.
    Cheers

  • GustavoWoltmann  

    Really excited for these releases, i'm waiting to play some of these

  • Vamsi_Nalluri  

    I am excited with titles like For Honor, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands, South Park: The Fractured But Whole as I feel they are going to be part of 2017 best games.
    Guys what do you think that is common in them? It's Ubisoft!!!!
    This year ubisoft franchises like Tom Clancy's Division, Far Cry Primal, Watch Dogs 2, Steep and previous year blockbuster hits like Assassin's Creed Syndicate and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege are all the best games of eighth generation consoles.{Especially in terms of Innovation and Graphics}

  • goergia12  

    Wow i am excited about Resident evil 7

  • Unbelievable21  

    lol, The Last Guardian's genre is listed as "vaporware." Ouch.
