Non-Gamers: Thanks for dropping by. This may not be a part of your world, but it’s a growing part of the world, in general. Even if you don’t play video games, it’s always good to know about gaming from a purely ‘cultural relativity’ perspective. Click on a few of these videos and I think you’ll see that we’re not in Kansas anymore.

Oh my god. I’m sitting here after watching all of these trailers and gameplay videos and it’s actually hard to process all of the awesomeness. From games releasing in the next few months to pre-alpha looks at titles that are further down the development timeline, there’s a lot to be excited about.

I mean, I’m just fired up about Microsoft’s announcement to add backwards compatibility to a growing list of Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One. A console must-have that, frankly, should have happened a long long time ago.

That being said, it really feels like we’ve reached a new, more cinematic, more visually rich plateau in the world of video games. For the first time I can remember- and this is clearly due to the type of robust graphics the next-gen consoles provide- everything looks…beautiful? It’s not if a game looks beautiful anymore, it’s what kind of beautiful the developers chose. The unique look and feel of the various worlds. The Last Guardian looks very different from Uncharted 4 but they’re both mesmerizing in their own way.

I mean, I look at just about every trailer and I’m like “I’m dying to play that” even games like Street Fighter V and Scalebound that aren’t my specific type of game look amazing. The shooters look amazing. The open world stuff looks amazing. The strategy games look amazing. It’s sort of this egalitarian playing field where everyone has cleared the visual bar and where we can focus all of our energy into the thing that matters most: actual gameplay.

Listed alphabetically, here are some of the games slated for upcoming release. I compiled this list from games that have had recent E3 trailers, ones I’m generally aware of and various games people have listed in the Pajiba Gamers Group. Did I miss anything that you’re fired up about? This whole post feels like Christmas to me. It’s no longer a question of playing games that are immersive and impressive and leave you with a rewarding experience. The question is how do you manage to keep a semblance of a life and still play as many as you can? What games are you guys most excited for?
