Ghostbusters (Windows, Xbox 360, PS3)

Dan Aykroyd? Check. Bill Murray? Check. Harold Ramis? Check. Ernie Hudson? Check. What more could you want? The original Ghostbusters from the cult 1984 film of the same name are here in what write, Dan Aykroyd, describes as “essentially Ghostbusters III”. The story for Ghostbusters the game is written by the writers for the film, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. The best part of the game is you get to join the Ghostbusters a new recruit, testing out Egon and Rays new equipment. The story is set 2 years after Ghostbusters II and with the original creators and writers, as well as the cast, this should definitely be a worthy Ghostbusters storyline. The reason this game is on the list is two-fold, I am a Ghostbusters fan and also this game nearly didn’t make it on to the shelves. After Activision and Blizzard merged, Ghostbusters was one of the games to be dropped. Luckily Atari where there to step in and to publish the finished game. Just remember, don’t cross the streams!

Gran Turismo 5 (PS3)

What would a Sony console be without a version of Gran Turismo released for it? Not a very good one. So far the PS3 has had the lacklustre Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, that at first whet our appetite but in the end just became a visual feast more than a next generation driving simulator. Gran Turismo is stated to having near photo-realistic graphics and superb attention to detail with the cars (this I can believe, as in an interview with Polyphony Digital they said it takes a minimum of a week to model just one car) and unparalleled driving physics. Could this really be the Real Driving Simulator the series claims to be.

The success of the Halo franchise on the Xbox and the Xbox 360 has rocketed Microsoft into one of the leading console manufactures and publishers. Halo 3 was one of the fastest selling games of all time. Now, Halo is taking a new direction into the realms of Real Time Strategy with Halo Wars, developed by Ensemble Studios. This Xbox 360 exclusive sets to change the way RTSs are played consoles and to change the opinions of RTSs belong on a PC with a mouse and keyboard. Halo Wars has a huge chance to be a massive success in 2009, with the popularity of Halo being so great, but also this is Ensemble Studios last game and they will want to go out with a bang.

The most shocking news of E3 was when Microsoft and Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy XIII will be coming to the Xbox 360 in North America and Europe. Barring all flame wars on whether this is a good thing or not, Final Fantasy XIII will still be a great game and one of the most anticipated games of 2009. The success of the Final Fantasy franchise in the western world started with the release of Final Fantasy VII on the PlayStation and with XIII being released on the Xbox 360 in the West will mean more people will enjoy the delight Square Enix will produce. No doubt the graphics will be breathtakingly superb and the story, as with so many RPGs, will be full of twists and turns, as well as heart stopping moments. Final Fantasy XIII has all the makings of being one of the best games of 2009 and will be set to delight JRPG fans around the globe!

Blizzard again grace the most anticipated games of 2009 list, this time with Diablo III. The secret project they were working on and us fans were hoping was coming, was finally confirmed at 2008's BlizzCon to massive rapture. Gamers will be delving into the depths of Hell to battle demons and the like to end the madness that plagues the Diablo world. Three of the five classes in Diablo 3 have been unveiled so far - the Barbarian, Witch Doctor and the Wizard - and this time players can choose the gender of their character as well. The graphics have taken on a massive overhaul from the last incantation and the art direction looks super awesome (though that is a matter of opinion and various petitions have been created to make it more "gothic"). Blizzard again look to have a sure fire winner with Diablo 3 and it is sure set to entertain me in late 2009.
