Deus EX is already paid for, thanks greenman!
Dark souls for sure because I loved the first. Just not sure what system.
Skyrim. looks vastly improved over the other games. Especially over that Scrolls game in the same universe.


When they are cheaper
Rage. Looks generic, but it's ID so I'll buy it eventually. Can't be worse than Doom3, right?
Arkham City. First one was good, but combat was boring until a boss fight.

Never
CoD. never because they don't go on sale and not worth more than 10 bucks.


Pretty much it. I"ll probably get the Stars Wars mmo despite it probably holding my attention for first month before the same-as-every-other-damn-mmo gameplay ramps up. Aka, get max level. do nothing but run instances because companies are too stupid to make anything else.

Skyrim
Driver: San Francisco
Forza 4
Battlefield 3 (if I can stomach Origin)
Saints Row 3
Rage
Batman Arkham City
Renegade Ops
The Blinding of Isaac
Rayman Origins
Torchlight 2

Probably (depending on review or sale):
W40K: Space Marine
LOTR: War in the North
Stronghold 3
Super Mario 3D Land
Cave Story 3D
Ratchet & Clank : All 4 One

And judging by History, probably a ton of other things I didn't plan on.  smile

These days I've become very realistic about what I really want to play, so my list is nowhere as crowded as most of yours. Sad fact is the stuff I really want to play might not be out this year. So, here's my list:

Day One::
League Of Legends: Dominion (but, it hardly counts for this list 'cause it'll be free to play)
Star Wars: The Old Republic (which looks likely to be released this holiday season. Thanksgiving, it seems)
Diablo III (It looks like Blizzard is running the final mile on this one. I'm not discounting a Christmas release)
StarCraft II: Heart Of The Swarm (Blizzard needs to release something this holiday season. If not Diablo III, then this)
Guild Wars 2 (Yeah.. no chance that it's coming out this year, but ArenaNet might pull a Christmas miracle)

Eventually:
Skyrim (I've never played a Elder Scrolls game for longer than a few hours. This one's looking impressive, but I know I won't pick it up on Day one)
Uncharted 3 (Really want to play a previous game in the series first)
The Legend Of Zelda:Skyward Sword (If I can pickup a Wii used by the it's released)
Batman: Arkham City (Really want to play the previous game first)
Rage (I'm interested in ID's vehicular mayhem game, but not sure it'll warrant a first day pickup)
ICO Collection (Really want to play these games, but again.. not sure when)

Frankly, I think I'm more excited for Winter/Spring 2012. That's when all these games will be out.  icon_razz

Arkham City
Battlefield 3
Rage

All pre-ordered.  I fully expect to send Rage back in on trade.  BF3 will depend on the legs of MP.  Arkham City will likely never leave my hands.

Lots of potentially good games this fall.   

I need to plan my purchases around when SWTOR launches.  If I'm into a good mmorpg I won't play anything else, so it's not smart spending if I buy new games at release price.  But, there are some games that I just won't be able to resist.  Here they are:
Space Marine
Diablo 3 (if released this fall)
Skyrim

Games that I may buy depending on reviews (within 1-3 months of release):
Arkham City
Deus Ex 3
Lord of the Rings: War in the North

I need to play/finish Ass Creed Brotherhood and Uncharted 2 before I buy their sequels.

The only Wii game I want to see is also set for release in October: The Grinder.  Here's hoping it is worth playing.

Batman and Assassin's Creed. Then next year Mass Effect 3. Those are my only definite buys.

If I hear it's teriffic, maybe Forza 4, but this is a series I love for a few days and then play it rarely thereafter. (In fact I just put my racing wheel in storage a couple weeks ago....)

If I hear it's nothing like the last two DS games in the series I may give the new Zelda shot.

maybe deus ex

*edit because when i hit enter, the forum decided it should just post "maybe deus ex" smile*

xmen destiny if it has some nice crunchy rpg bits, skyrim, assassins creed (you sucked me back in!  after being jilted by the first i ignored the second and finally became interested in brotherhood due to the gameplay additions, which i loved and caused me to go back to the second... yada yada yada).  and i LOVED arkham asylum so im expecting to love city even more with its awesomely bloated cast of cameos... but im not sure if ill buy it or just rent it to play through it...  i THINK thats my list?
oh ya and demon souls xbox (forgot the name?).  missed it on ps3 and cried - so hopefully this one is more of the same goodness of the first go around!

after finding the last few years of holiday rush pretty underwhelming (maybe one or two games that i was OMGZZZ about) this one is certainly looking to make a splash for me

Buy it and support Rocksteady.  I want this studio to keep making games for a long time if they are even close to the quality of Arkham Asylum.

honestly sky that was one of the main reasons i was actually even considering buying - and why i probably will.  i think the friendly reminder was probably enough to push me over the edge!  (especially as i felt AA was more than a full game and city looks even larger)

Skyrim
Batman 2
Gears 3
MW3
Diablo 3
Torch Light 2
Space Marines - Crappy its the UltraMarines instead of my favorite chapter Space Wolves

Assassin Creed: Revelations

maybe

Saint's Row - after loving the first game in the series I gave up on two and never went back, so it's a wait and see with this one

Well I decided that due to time constraints I needed to cut out one or more platforms for the fall, so it looks like I'll be holding off on any 3DS or PS3 purchases for the rest of the year. I'd add the Wii to the list but I really want that golden Wiimote Plus.....
