The year has started slowly, but listing all the known games to be dropping across all platforms, so far, reveals a tidy (and lengthy) list of solid investments as far as your gaming time goes.

We asked Dylan Burns to take a look at the year ahead and he came back with a solid snapshot of what's actually announced for 2015. There are still lots of games to be announced, and even more currently in development that may or may not drop this year -- but one thing's for sure at a glance at this list, 2015 is definitely stepping it up as far as releases goes, along with release quality.

If there's anything we've missed, please drop us a note, or if you just want to chime in on a game on this list feel free to blowout the Comments section below.

Fingers crossed we at least get access to this Doom beta that was promised with Wolfenstein last year if they don't get the full game out.

Dying Light I've preordered (and hoping I didn't make a mistake). GTA V for PC. Witcher 3. Maybe Project CARS.

Keen as for Witcher 3 and MGS5. Isn't Legend of Zelda Wii U out this year too? Surprised that isn't on the list.

Only really looking forward to Evolve, Phantom Pain and GTAVPC myself..... Although I'm interested in seeing how Dreadnaught works out.

As far as what's not on the list? the Heavensward expansion for A Realm Reborn and as Tollazor said, FFVX.

Been gradually downgrading my PC for more energy efficiency and cooler running. My next downgrade will probably prevent me from playing any of these games on a PC ever. Without a good RTS or Diablo 2 clone to pass the time the only thing left is l4d2 or 3 which shouldn't requiring any amazing hardware if I know Valve.

Looking forward to MKX. Peace.

If energy efficency is so important just get a gaming laptop and be done with it.

my 120w laptop runs most modern games at 1080p

I'm with Rominion when i see a 3d dirX 12 game that is built for 4k resolution and has the open world freedom of Far Cry 2 that would be exciting.

Any AusGamer inside scoops on what's happening with Avalanche's Mad Max Game? As I originally thought that was being done by the Just Cause 2 crew, but they've been working on Just Cause 3. And their website is just a irrelevant customize car page still :/

I'm saving Alien Isolation for use with a Facebookulas Rift.

Some of these games appeal to me, but some of these game that you have mentioned as being 'TBC' are confirmed like Halo 5 Guardians, it is available for pre-purchase. GTA V for PC is looking really good and cannot wait! :D

Didn't ya hear Gyro, 'round these parts we dun take kindly to pre-purchasen'

Halo 5 is available for pre-order because stores like taking your money, but theres no actual confirmed release date for it yet.

Man I almost pre-ordered it and then I thought no, I'll wait a bit. Watched some gameplay videos and holy balls it looks boring and crap. Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide, Hold E to hide

Nope. I hate games that just stop you for no good reason other than to artificially prolong an otherwise stupidly short experience. And the ending? WTF? Anti climax to rival all anti climaxes.

The order and Witcher 3 look like they might amuse me somewhat.

For me:

Dota2.

I'll just play this a lot and go to sleep angry about it more often than not. I'll probably spend lots of my hard earned on other games and not play them much no matter how much fun they are or how good they are and just play f*****g dota ... even though it slowly eats away at my self respect, sanity, and sense of universal justice. I will literally be a worse person because I play this game a lot in 2015. It will no doubt cost me at least one e-friendship.

Sigh.

haha hoggy

that is fantastic

we will still be e-buds because i don't play dota
