It was fairly evident that the game was coming soon, and the trailers they've showed have oozed with atmosphere.
Yes, since Gearbox are involved the game will be received with some trepidation. That doesn't mean you still can't anticipate the thing. Not a single vote? Come on. Doesn't anyone find that weird in the slightest?

  5. Nier Atomata
  6. Zelda Wii U
  7. Mirror's Edge Catalyst

Far too many follow ups to list. 2016 is going to be insane

1. Mass Effect Andromeda - #6
2. Dreams - #56
3. Rez Infinite - #70
4. The Last Guardian - #7
5. Overwatch - #25
6. Horizon Zero Dawn - #3
7. No Man's Sky - #10
8. Gravity Rush 2 - #21
9. Bound - #121
10. South Park The Fractured But Whole - #39

Overall pretty consistant with GAF. 4 out of 10 in the top 10 isn't that unexpected since GAF has such great taste on average.

Some of these games can't come soon enough. At the moment though I think I'm looking forward to Gravity Rush Remastered most though since that releases on my birthday in a couple of weeks.

Amazing list, 2016 is looking really good (several games will surely be delayed tho). Good work, Shinobi!

With Zelda's entirely unsurprising delay to 2017, our 2nd casualty from the GAF 2016 most anticipated Top 10 games list has now revealed itself.

NieR: Automata has now broken its way into the Top 10 ranks. Who could have imagined that possibility this time last year? Here is the updated list...

1. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (in 13 days - unless you happen to be a thief in Europe in which case you're playing it now) {also voted most anticipated of 2015}
2. Persona 5 (Summer 2016 - Japan; hyped up reveal announcement for next Thursday to possibly solidify a date) {voted 8th most anticipated of 2014; voted 6th most anticipated of 2015}
3. Horizon: Zero Dawn (TBD 2016; remains on this list despite shinobi602's sourced intel stating that a 2017 release is inevitable)
The Legend of Zelda (delayed 'til "sometime in 2017") {voted 3rd most anticipated of 2015}
4. Dark Souls III (Metacritic = 89 / OpenCritic = 88)
Mass Effect: Andromeda (delayed 'til Q1 2017)
5. The Last Guardian (TBD 2016; I asked my magic 8-ball to confirm this and it exploded)
6. Final Fantasy XV (September 30th)
7. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (August 23rd)
8. No Man's Sky (June 21st) {voted 8th most anticipated of 2015}
9. Street Fighter V (Metacritic = 78 / OpenCritic = 76)
10. NieR: Automata (TBD 2016)

ON THE TOP 10 BUBBLE

Tom Clancy's The Division (Metacritic = 81 / OpenCritic = 80)
Mirror's Edge Catalyst (June 7th)
Quantum Break (Metacritic = 77 / OpenCritic = 76)

Nier is gonna be 2017, and i think FFXV is still at risk of a delay, regardless of all the confidence Tabata has of its scheduled release.

But it's always like this.
Last year also, half the list got bumped.

1. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
2. Persona 5 (Might get a Fall release for the US, but i'm still not 100% confident in that)
3. Horizon: Zero Dawn (definitely it got delayed to 2017)
4. Dark Souls III
5. The Last Guardian (i'm pretty sure this is going to release this year, no way Sony delays both this and Horizon)
6. Final Fantasy XV (September 30th, totally going to hit that release)
7. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (August 23rd who knows, i haven't followed the game so i have no idea if it'll make it)
8. No Man's Sky (June 21st) {voted 8th most anticipated of 2015}
9. Street Fighter V
10. NieR: Automata (Don't think it'll release this year in the West)

Listen i'm all for the "delay it to improve quality", but man all these delays are turning these kind of things pointless :/

Damn this was made in Jan and I'm just seeing it now?

Not seeing the hype with Uncharted. I'm getting tired of the series myself. Looks like Horizon isn't coming this year. Still never got to play SFV. I want to play Personas 3 and 4 before 5 and am looking forward to XV, but none of this means shit if I can't find a better job where I can afford a PS4.

Bye Horizon, have fun with Zelda, Mass Effect, and Scalebound on the 2017 list.
Looks like it's time for the pre-E3 update now that our 3rd Top 10 title has fallen into next year...

1. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (Metacritic & OpenCritic = 93)
2. Persona 5 (September 15th - in Japan; localization due in 2016) {voted 8th most anticipated of 2014; voted 6th most anticipated of 2015}
Horizon: Zero Dawn (delayed 'til February 28th, 2017; shinobi602 was right)
The Legend of Zelda (delayed 'til "sometime in 2017") {voted 3rd most anticipated of 2015}
3. Dark Souls III (Metacritic = 89 / OpenCritic = 88)
Mass Effect: Andromeda (delayed 'til Q1 2017)
4. The Last Guardian (TBD 2016; recent IGN and Edge previews have me re-convinced a 2016 release window will be hit)
5. Final Fantasy XV (September 30th)
6. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (August 23rd)
7. No Man's Sky (August 9th; let's see if this date holds) {voted 8th most anticipated of 2015}
8. Street Fighter V (Metacritic = 78 / OpenCritic = 76)
9. NieR: Automata (TBD 2016; seems likely that this will be our next casualty)
10. Tom Clancy's The Division (Metacritic & OpenCritic = 80)

ON THE TOP 10 BUBBLE

Mirror's Edge Catalyst (out tomorrow) (OpenCritic = 72)
Quantum Break (Metacritic = 77 / OpenCritic = 76)
Fire Emblem Fates (Metacritic = 87 / OpenCritic = 86)

Man, you'd think given the Blizzard pedigree and how well it's been received that Overwatch would have fared better in this poll. 25th place? Really?

Another one bites the dust. My list next year will have Zelda and Persona once again for the third year in a row!
And we were making so much progress towards avoiding the "4 out of our top 10 games get bumped to the next year" curse, too.

Hell, if The Last Guardian gets bumped to 2017, we'll hit 5 misses for the first time. We really need to do a better job of voting for games that are right around the corner in these threads.

And, because I jinxed myself yesterday saying I would only need to do one pre-E3 revision to this list... unless you speak Japanese, of course, in which case you have an actual Persona game to play this year instead of just one to watch on Twitch...

1. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (Metacritic & OpenCritic = 93)
Persona 5 (September 15th - in Japan; localization delayed 'til February 14th, 2017) {voted 8th most anticipated of 2014; voted 6th most anticipated of 2015}
Horizon: Zero Dawn (delayed 'til February 28th, 2017; shinobi602 was right)
The Legend of Zelda (delayed 'til "sometime in 2017") {voted 3rd most anticipated of 2015}
2. Dark Souls III (Metacritic = 89 / OpenCritic = 88)
Mass Effect: Andromeda (delayed 'til Q1 2017)
3. The Last Guardian (TBD 2016; recent IGN and Edge previews have me re-convinced a 2016 release window will be hit)
4. Final Fantasy XV (September 30th)
5. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (August 23rd)
6. No Man's Sky (August 9th; let's see if this date holds) {voted 8th most anticipated of 2015}
7. Street Fighter V (Metacritic = 78 / OpenCritic = 76)
8. NieR: Automata (TBD 2016; was recently left off Square Enix's list of major titles releasing through March 2017)
9. Tom Clancy's The Division (Metacritic & OpenCritic = 80)
10. Mirror's Edge Catalyst (Metacritic = 72 / OpenCritic = 73)

ON THE TOP 10 BUBBLE

Quantum Break (Metacritic = 77 / OpenCritic = 76)
Fire Emblem Fates (Metacritic = 87 / OpenCritic = 86)
Zero Time Dilemma (June 28th)

Man, there were a lot of people excited for Mirror's Edge Catalyst. Shame how that turned out.
Still fared better than The Order: 1886, at least. We were so off the mark on that one.
