What games are you looking forward to / going to order?

Just wondered what games people are looking forward to, and what ones they're going to order?

I realise a fair few of you will probably say Halo 3, but personally I'm not a fan of Halo, so it's not one I'm looking forward to.

However, what I am looking forward to, and have decided I will definitely order are:

WWE SmackDown! vs RAW 2008 (ECW Invasion)
Call Of Duty 4

Both are out on the 9th of November 2007 according to Amazon UK

I wasn't actually originally planning on getting Call Of Duty 4 though, since I was expecting it would be a longer before it would be out, so obviously I was surprised to learn that it will be the same day as SvR08, after thinking about it though, I decided I might as well get it too after all :-D

However it will be SvR08 that I play first, not COD4

EDIT: Interesting, after taking a quick look at Amazon.com, it appears people in the US get COD4 on 5th November, which is obviously before us, but they don't get WWE SmackDown! vs RAW 2008 (ECW Invasion) until November 13th (obviously after us).

All I can say is...

I never pre-order games.

I always wait until they are actually available to buy, have been reviewed by several publications/websites (so I can get a good idea if they are decent or not), and (preferably) I've had a chance to try them out first.

In other words, I don't buy into hype in the slightest.
I also don't care if every other game in a series was great, there have been plenty of examples where the latest version was rubbish (Driver 3 anyone ?).

Does that make me a bit odd or just sensible ?

I would say sensible, and it is a rule that generally I tend to follow - but since I am a fan of the WWE SmackDown! series of games (though admittedly they haven't been perfect....case in point, the many errors present in SvR07), I'll still be buying it - and since I've liked the play I've been getting from the COD4 Beta, I would say that is enough for me to make the decision to get that also.

After buying them though, I probably wouldn't bother buying any more games for a year though (SvR09? :whistling:) - or at least new games, if I was going to it'd most likely be second hand ones

Needless to say though that everyone has their own way of going about things, which of course they are perfectly entitled to do

Well still waiting for Elite 4.

Will have probably died by the time its finished!:giggle:

Play.com have it on pre-order for 28/11/2008!!!

Has anyone managed to preorder the special edition CoD4 on 360 from Game? I have the standard edition preordered but for some reason it just asks me over and over and overrr again to enter my card details when I try & order it I'm 99% sure the websites changed a bit since I preordered the standard edition so I suppose it could be that... Has anyone else had probs?

My PC would probably explode if I tried to play Crysis. That aside, it does look an amazing game.
