Just before the end of 2013, Sony’s PlayStation 4, Microsoft’s Xbox One and Nintendo’s Wii U hit stores loaded with the newest technology and hardware to carry the future of gaming throughout the coming years. Those of us who were fortunate enough to grab one of these new consoles over winter break may be starting to feel apathetic towards these new systems due to a low number of popular franchise games. While it is to be expected that the most desired games do not release alongside their consoles, the wait between now and the big releases of this year will be well worth it. Here is the shortlist of what games to get excited about for this year.
If you’re like me, having grown up with the initial release of the ever-popular Pokemon series, then you know firsthand how much fun the portable games are. The first installments, Red and Blue, were released back in Sept. 1998. Fifteen years have passed since then, and with the production of Pokemon X and Y, we can finally enjoy all 718 Pokemon in thrilling, high quality 3D.
