With valuable input from veteran gamer and CNET Senior Editor Scott Stein, we bring you a list of games that have major potential for greatness. Click through to check them out, and click the titles for trailers. Here's hoping they are as epic as they appear to be...
1. Rocket League: Stein is thrilled it’s coming to the Nintendo Switch: “It’s a great eSports competitive game and the Switch is increasingly good for that.”
3. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus: Because America demands another game with the word “colossus” in the title, dammit!
4. Super Mario Odyssey: Stein says you can always use more Mario: “It looks like a great example of a big studio game that’s going to be really open and fun, probably the best game since Super Mario 64.”
5. South Park: The Fractured But Whole: Cartman and company take on superhero franchises—what’s not to love?
6. God of War: Stein says simply, “Sony, I love their bigger studio-like productions like God.”
7. Sea of Thieves: If the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movies gave piracy a bad name, this helps restore it.
9. A Way Out: Gotta love a prison-break game that pays tribute to Jackie Chan’s Who Am I? skyscraper slide.
10. Metroid: Samus Returns: We’ve missed you, Samus.
