Virtual Reality was among the first mentioned.
So you probably already know what game or games you’re most excited about in 2016 but have you ever wondered what the people responsible for bringing you those games are excited about? On the official Playstation blog, Sony attempted to answer that question for you by holding a bit of a round table with some of the industry’s top developers. The question was simple, “what are you most excited about when it comes to video games in 2016?”
Some of the answers came back with the usual responses including people like Aki Raula, Lead Designer for Housemarque who are looking forward to Uncharted 4. Mass Effect Andromeda is another game that quite a few developers mentioned as a game they are looking forward to seeing. There were also a number of developers who managed to pimp their own products but one game that was mentioned again and again was No Man’s Sky. Considering that game has been among the most anticipated for several years, at this point, it’s interesting to see if that title can possibly live up to the hype.
Not everyone talked about a specific game they were looking forward to in 2016. Dominic Matthews, Product Development Manager for Ninja Theory said he’s most looking forward to seeing VR become a reality next year. Considering that PlayStation VR is reportedly getting as many as 50 games during the first year of launch, it seems Virtual Reality will indeed be a big part of the coming year.
