BioShock Infinite

Welcome to GamesBeat’s list of notable releases for 2013. With both Microsoft and Sony (at least) set to unveil the next generation of gaming hardware in time for the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), who knows what we’ll be playing by the end of the year. For now, the GamesBeat editors and writers pooled together their thoughts on known and notable releases of 2013 as well as our predictions on whether they’ll be worth a damn.

Not all games are notable simply because they’re expected to be good, however, and we’re not pulling any punches with our opinions just because a game’s not out yet. The way we see it, you can speak up early, or you can complain after spending $60.

Check back soon for a separate feature for all the big massively multiplayer online titles coming out this year.

What games of 2013 are you looking forward to (or worried about)?
