5 Upcoming Video Games I Am Excited For

I have played video games for as long as I can remember. I remember playing "Mario Kart" back on the Super Nintendo System in the early to mid-1990s. The gaming industry as a whole has evolved rapidly. I have listed a few various titles being released this year that I cannot wait to play.

1. "Call of Duty WWII"

Release date: November 3, 2017
Platforms: Xbox One, PlayStation 4

The newest addition to the Call Of Duty series was finally announced this week. It is evident that the creators of the Call of Duty series took notice of how well Battlefield 1 was selling and decided to design their next installment to also be based in the WWII era.

GameStop offers a pro edition for $99.99 which includes the season pass, a collectible steelbook as well as bonus downloadable content. If you plan to purchase the season pass at some point, the pro edition is the way to go.

2. "Injustice 2"

Release date: May 16, 2017
Platforms: Android, iOS, Xbox One, PlayStation 4

Injustice 2 continues the storyline established in Injustice: Gods Among Us (2013). Unlike the previous game, which had centered on a multi-universe conflict, the plot for Injustice 2 takes place within the alternate, dystopian universe. While I have yet to play the first game, I still have serious interest in eventually purchasing the sequel.

3. "South Park: The Fractured But Whole"

Release Date: TBA (2017)
Platforms: Windows, Xbox One, PlayStation 4

The Fractured But Whole takes place after the events of South Park: The Stick of Truth. Twelve brand new classes are in the upcoming sequel, including Cyborg and Assassin. If you did not get around to playing The Stick of Truth just yet, don't fret. Preorders for The Fractured But Whole at GameStop will include a free digital download of The Stick of Truth.

4. "Splatoon 2"

Release Date: July 21, 2017
Platforms: Nintendo Switch

Like its predecessor Splatoon (2015), Splatoon 2 is a multiplayer third-person shooter in which players control characters known as Inklings and use colored ink to attack opponents. There was a recent public multiplayer demo Splatoon 2 Global Testfire back in March. The sequel has new weapons, sub-weapons, and specials to the game, including dual wield pistols. Despite the fact that I did not do well in the demo, I still am willing to preorder this game. Who doesn't love shooting at other with paint?

5. "Super Mario Odyssey"

Release date: Late 2017
Platforms: Nintendo Switch

Fans of Super Mario 64 (1996) and Super Mario Sunshine (2002) will be glad to know that this latest title in the Super Mario series will be in the same freeform level design incorporated in these two games. Super Mario 64 is hands down one of my all-time favorite games in the Super Mario Series. It was disappointing that this game did not release with the Nintendo Switch system, unlike the previous Nintendo consoles that released with at least one Super Mario title. I can only hope to expect that Super Mario Odyssey will be worth the extended wait.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
