The Most Impressive Next-Gen Video Games That Have Been Revealed So Far
Technology

The future of gaming is officially here. The Electronic Entertainment Expo, otherwise known as E3 out in LA, has unveiled everything we wanted to see in this new, cutting edge technology and we have to say… we are blown away.

It’s looking like Sony’s Playstation 4 will edge out the Xbox One as Microsoft shot itself in the foot by pricing its system at a whopping $500 — and also for an array of other stupid features or lack thereof (Click here to see why Xbox One sucks).

And while the home entertainment aspect of it is cool and all, real gamers just want to see the titles, and most importantly, the graphics. I mean this is the next generation of gaming, so exactly how crazy do these damn things look? Well upon initial review: very-super-crazy.

It’s everything we could have wanted. And more! The visuals are absolutely stunning and it’s safe to say that many of us will be missing work and school toward the end of the year.

The level of detail they were able to capture all across the board is simply unbelievable as this is a huge leap from the current gen. But the scariest part of this all is that this is just the beginning. Give it a couple of years to see the full potential of the processing system, as we have surely yet to see the best.

Until then, enjoy what will surely be consuming your lives come November 2013. While there is still much more to be shown at the event, we thought that it was of utmost importance to bestow upon all the power that is video gaming. These are the most impressive next-gen video games that have been released so far.

Deep Down

Capcom has shocked us with some truly impressive visuals with their first offering on next-gen consoles. Deep Down puts gamers right back into the time when noble knights were slaying dragons in dark sketchy dungeons. Who wouldn’t want to play that out for themselves?

This third person game is still a bit of a mystery to gamers as no further information, aside from this gameplay trailer, have been released. But judging by some of the cool effects they show, from dragons breathing fire to the particles floating in air, we are going to go ahead and call this a must-buy.


NBA 2K14

Arguably the hottest sports franchise in all of gaming, NBA 2K teased us with this unbelievable trailer with LeBron James and his counterpart Video Game James.

If the King himself on the cover isn’t enough to make this an instant buy, then you don’t know a thing about basketball. Player models are spot on and even facial movements are timed with eerie precision. It looks like 2K is going to destroy EA once again in the sports sphere.


Killzone: Shadow Fall

Killzone immerses gamers into a world like we’ve never seen. This is one of the longest-running series to hit next-gen and it’s easily one of the most graphically superior.

From the stunning cityscapes, to the dazzling explosions, Killzone looks to be one hell of a game.


Final Fantasy XV

After Square Enix confirmed that Final Fantasy Versus XIII was cancelled, they followed up by announcing Final Fantasy XV. If anyone knows anything about gaming, they know that FF is a pillar to any console and that its next-gen debut is probably the most anticipated.

Sure there may be more graphically superior games out on the market, but you know what you’re getting when you pop in any FF game. And with new processing and computing, expect for much more.


Mad Max

Based off Mel Gibson’s 1979 blockbuster hit, “Mad Max” is sure to please cinema lovers in next-gen. With the developers Avalanche Studios in helm (the guys who made Just Cause), we are sure to see some strong story lines with dramatic effects.

Set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where men kill for survival, expect this game to be one of the biggest thrillers on the market.


Watch Dog

Ubisoft blessed with this amazing tech-based thriller set in one of the grimiest cities we have ever seen. But with superpowers you can use to manipulate people, phones and other gadgets, it becomes one hell of a playground.

Every time we see Watch Dogs, we want to know a little more about its urban, dystopian world of compromised digital networks.


inFAMOUS Second Son

Sucker Punch’s Infamous: Second Son was by far one of the biggest eyebrow raisers during Sony’s PS4 conference, depicting a world controlled through surveillance. D.U.P., the seemingly oppressive force claiming that mankind’s safety is its foremost concern, has made some obvious enemies in the form of Conduits — which, as you may recall, are folks imbued with superpowers.

The new protagonist isn’t too keen with the loss of freedom humanity has endured, and takes the fight to D.U.P. troops with some awesome fire powers. We can’t wait to see what else he has in his arsenal, and we’re excited for the darker, grittier story that Second Son seems it may tell.


Halo 5

We all know what we’re getting with this series. The most in-depth shooter out on the market, plus some truly amazing visuals to set it all off. While actual gameplay has yet to be released, based off this trailer, we can expect this to be the best-looking yet.


The Division

Set in one of the most realistic New York City backdrops we have ever seen, The Division takes third-person shooting to the next level. With some ridiculously interactive environments and some state of the art screens, this is what the future of gaming is all about.

The fact that this is a living, breathing city (albeit abandoned) should be enough to entice gamers to want to play. Also from the looks of the map, it may be one of the most scalable cities of all time for any game.


Battlefield 4

Battlefield 4 is going to be bananas. This multiplayer demo shows us everything we ever wanted to see in a next-generation game. We are completely taken by some of the effects and interactiveness that are shown off in this video.

While we’re going to have to wait until 2014 for EA to drop it, it looks like it will be more than worth the wait. Call of Duty better watch out, Battlefield is leading the way for first-person shooters of the future.
