4. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

Zoom

OK, it might not actually be called Black Ops 2 - but that would be the most logical nomenclature for this year's iteration of Activision's all-conquering first-person shooter, given that it's Treyarch's turn at the development controls. Frankly, the world might well stop turning if a year went by without a new CoD game. Let's hope it's even trippier than Black Ops - and that those zombies make a comeback.

5. Dirt: Showdown

Zoom

Something of a departure - into arcade-racer territory - for Codemasters' rallying-meets-hooning game. Ken Block is back, helping to provide the opposition for bog-standard and figure-of-eight races, demolition derbies and hooning galore. Mad vehicles, such as pick-ups and ambulances, plus obstacles galore should ensure that Dirt: Showdown's proceedings turn out be pretty high-octane.

6. Dishonored

Zoom

A new franchise from Bethesda, of Fallout and Elder Scrolls fame, is bound to feature highly on the wish-list of any gamer in the know. Developed by Arkane Studios, this first-person stealth-action effort takes place in a retro-futuristic city modelled on Victorian London called Dunwall, and Dishonored's gameplay is all about the freedom to take whatever approach you choose (such as sneaking around undetectably by possessing rats).
