    Thread concept:

    The basic idea is to list new games that you are interested in, as well as games you are potentially curious about or want to give wider attention to. You can briefly describe them or ask other people to help fill you in. The hope is that regular threads like these can act as a collective filter/discovery mechanism to help people decide what is worth checking out.

    "New games" means any new title that is being released or ported this month in any capacity (not "backlogs/what you are playing this month"). The angle here is sharing your anticipation and promoting game discovery (as opposed to sharing comments about a first playthrough in progress - that belongs elsewhere).

    .

    • If you want a handy list that covers most of the major upcoming games of the month, here's a couple text lists of upcoming games:

    Feel free to post other lists or list videos of upcoming releases that you find useful.

    • Final request: If you are the first person to mention a game please provide (at minimum) a short sentence description. (If it is a very big AAA release though, then don't worry about it.) This is a good convention that makes the thread more useful as a discovery mechanism, and especially helps out anyone who doesn't follow the news as closely as you.


  • I'm most looking forward to the PC version of Monster Hunter Rise. And I'm also that fool who plays every new Pokémon game, so I'll definitely be playing Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

  • I'm most excited for the Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection. The way Sony is handling this is pretty shady and weird, with them delisting the individual OG versions and such, but I just love those games too much. Can't wait to replay them with the upgrades. Comes out on January 28th for PS5, and at a later date for PC.

  • One of the most notable games of January is Rainbow Six: Extraction. Could make for some quality multiplayer enjoyment but admittedly it looks like a blatant Ubisoft cash-grab. I'm not going to count out the possibility that it could be a treat but I'm skeptical:

  • Legends Arceus for me too. This one looks promising, although I still recommend waiting for reception instead of preordering.



  • Nothing new and interesting in January for me. Time to clean my backlog a bit.



  • Legends Arceus. not really interested in any other january games. thank god my wallet can taken a well earned break
