With 2011 almost behind us, it's time to look to the future of what 2012 will hold for games.
In an effort to avoid inaccuracies, we've compiled the chronological list based on the best release-date information possible. Any game scheduled for a 2013 release (see Rainbow 6: Patriots) has been deliberately left off the list.
Feeling nostalgic? Go back in time, and check out 2011's list and 2010's list of the most anticipated games, and then gleefully laugh to yourself while counting all the titles that have either evaporated entirely or still have yet to be released. Odds are, some of the latter have found their way into this compilation.
