So now that 2013 is all but done and dusted, and we have new hardware from both Sony and Microsoft, what are the killer games due out in 2014 for us to get excited about?

While I'm confident that we'll get another Fifa, COD, Battlefield and Assassin's Creed, what is everyone really looking forward to in 2014?

Off the top of my head -

Lego The Hobbit
Lego Movie
The Division
Infamous Second Son
Driveclub
Watch Dogs
Destiny
Last of Us story DLC

plus the usually suspects of Fifa, Assassin's Creed and Need For Speed.

Would love the next Uncharted game to be coming out in 2014 too :-)

Got to be Fez Vita (come on!), Velocity 2X, Hotline Miami 2, Borderlands2 Vita.

Something to make me need a PS4

And I'd love for Elite Dangerous to be awesome - I have such wonderfully fond memories of playing Elite on my Atari ST, I'd love Dangerous to be a proper modern Elite game.

The alpha footage of Elite half made me wish I'd ponied up more money for the Kickstarter to get that level of access, it's looking extremely good.

It does look vice nice indeed and it is great to see with this and Star Citizen a bit of a renaissance in the space sim genre. They were always one of my favourite types of game to play. I never understood why they fell so out of favour. Surely it would've been a no-brainer for EA to resurrect the Wing Commander franchise or for Lucasarts to make a follow up to the X-Wing/Tie Fighter games?

I'd love a new X-Wing game - and hearing about Elite's energy management options reminded me how much I enjoyed some of the more tricky missions on the old Lucasarts/film games.

My concern would be Disney's cack handedness giving us a band wagon jumping iOS/FTP game riddle with microtransactions instead of a bona fide successor.

The update to FTL is all I've got in mind at the moment.

If I do get a next gen console, the only thing that really appeals is BF4 on-line. Everything else looks pretty, but a bit vacant.

Wii U isn't doing anything to tempt me either. Only Pikmin 3 gives me anything like a pang of desire.

So, I'm mostly looking forward to playing unplayed stuff I've already got, although XCOM: Enemy Within is the #1 2013 game I want to get.

The only other game-related stuff I'm a bit excited by is whether Valve comes good on getting lots more new games running on SteamOS. If they don't, there'll be no point to a Steambox; although they're looking a lot further ahead than just the next year or two.

I'm hoping to see lots more interesting indie stuff like Papers Please and Gunpoint tempting me to try something different.

For it's the Witcher 3, Dark Souls 2, and MGS5. Though, I might not buy any of them until next year… Still need to buy The Last of Us, Beyond and AC4.

PS: Oh, and Rime if that is coming out in 2014.

Good shout on Rime - looks to have huge potential.

2013 has been an indie year for me - I've probably gotten more enjoyment out of stuff like Hotline Miami, Guacamelee, TWA and Terraria, than I have out of the usual big name suspects.....

I'm looking forward to its continuation (on Vita) in 2014.

I picked up FTL in the Humble Bundle a few months back. Maybe I should play it, then...

Updates and content patches for FFXIV. Maybe an expansion. I need to stop buying other games, since I don't play them.

As for next gen... FFXIV on PS4?

Happy new year everyone.

The Division looks great and honestly after playing it at EGX I'm super excited for Titanfall.

Interesting to see some of the incoming titles picked out in this this EG article

The Witness mentioned quite a few times along with Everybody's Gone to Rapture and Titanfall.

Reading that makes me think that 2014 is shaping up to be a decent year, gaming-wise.

Funny how missing out one small word makes it sound like people are excited for a Bioshock Infinite expansion or something. ^^;

All of the above and a tiny bit of me still thinks The Crew will work out OK in the end.

Also still excited about Mirror's Edge 2
