Ok, so there are a lot of highly anticipated games this year, but our top five are... (info in gallery captions)

1. The Last Guardian (Team Ico, PS4) - We've been waiting for this title since 2007, but the Team Ico's pedigree is such that we get the feeling it'll be worth the wait. The team behind the amazing Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are our top tip for blowing away gamers this year. There's an air of mystery to this one, so keep fingers crossed. If it's not amazing, this could easily be the year's greatest disappointment.

2. Legend of Zelda (Nintendo, Wii U) - No more really needs to be said than Zelda and Nintendo, such is the resultant quality when those words combine, but the latest Legend of Zelda will feature the largest world ever in a Zelda game and an open world at that.
3. Fallout 4 (Bethesda, PS4, Xbox One, PC) - It's been over five years since we got a taste of sweet sweet rad-roach and recent teasers and leaks have whet the appetite for more post-apocalyptic action. No last gen console release means this should be Bethesda at full tilt. I for one can't wait to start using a Bawstan accent while clubbing mutants.
4. No Man's Sky (Hello Games, PS4) - With a procedurally generated universe and some incredibly beautiful screenshots doing the rounds, this game is full of potential. The development is lead by Irishman Sean Murray, so it gets an extra anticipation star from us.
5 - Star Wars Battlefront (DICE, PC, PS4, Xbox One) - This game is another on the long awaited list. The first Star Wars Battlefront came out in 2004 and was a hit. Now the franchise is in the hands of DICE, the crew behind a little known franchise called Battlefield. Whenever a FPS multiplayer disappoints the words are whispered "just wait until Battlefront."

This is a really exciting year as the big consoles have found their stride and there are plenty of other games to look forward to. A new Deus Ex, Mass Effect, Metal Gear Solid and Uncharted are all going to appear.

Let us know what you're looking forward to.
