Yeah, these are just the big-hitting MGS titles. I don't think they include third party games, but regardless, MGS would know of all the titles that are coming out this year even if they were third party.

The Penny Arcade game looks like a hit-or-miss. I read about it earlier last year, and I was skeptical then. Still skeptical, so I'll have to wait and see.

Ninja Gaiden II = win. Maybe I'm expecting too much, but it would be nice for a bit more variety than normal hack-n-slash, although this series does it extremely well.

Too Human looks freaking sweet. I cannot wait.

Viva Pinata actually sold a ****ton, if I'm not mistaken. I played it, and it is pretty addicting, I have to say.

Banjo Kazooie looks meh. If it's good, I'll get it and enjoy it. Not into platformers that much.

Gears of War 2 I will probably pass on. I thought GoW had beautiful graphics and visual direction, but the gameplay was too slow for me. Felt too chunky. Plus, multiplayer is like CSS or other popular FPS games in that you often go against guys that have near-perfect accuracy.

Fable 2 is my most-wanted atm. There are very few sequels that I have wanted to come out more. So excited. Let's just hope it's actually long or has tons of replay value. The duration of the first one was pretty bad.

J/k, i never actually played the game so i can't comment. Nothing there that I am really dying to play. Looking forward to GoW2 but i can't really say I am excited about it

At the moment the Ps3 releases seem a lot more exciting. Well, just MGS4
Actually, if you include the spin-off party game (Viva Piñata: Party Animals), this will be the third.

For me nothing can beat the PS3 2008 line up, if only for LittleBigPlanet, but Ninja Gaiden 2 sounds like it could be something.

That was an expansion, this will be a full game.

There was also one for handhelds that didn't do so well that wasn't made by RARE. This one will be made by RARE.
