No immediate must-buy's on the list so far. A few things I'll grab later on, hoping for PC releases for Persona and Danganronpa, P5 seems unlikely though.

For Honor looks interesting. Just pre-ordered Halo Wars 2 (gotta get my HW1 Definitive Edition game on these holidays!!!). After those two in Feb, it looks like Horizon: Zero Dawn, and MAYBE Persona 5 are all I'm really looking forward to out of the titles with release dates.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is totally on my list though... whenever it comes out (and if it isn't delayed into '18).

I really hope the Switch blows my socks off with it's info dump in Jan though - it would be nice for me-personally to have something to care about come out of Nintendo... then maybe that'll add some titles to my list.

Some good ones to look forward to! In a few years when they have all dropped in price by heaps. Being broke is awesome! Haha.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the only Pre-order/Day 1 purchase on the list for me.
Close will be Horizon Zero Dawn - on the fence whether to buy day 1 or wait for it to be $50.

Is Destiny 2 announced for release next year? Think its presumed just not official yet.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole is my must-buy for 2017. Loved The Stick of Truth. It's a Q1 release at this stage.

Gwent will be my must buy this year - I assume it doesn't have a release date yet or it would be on this list?

I have played Tales of Berseria it is better and much less grindy than Zestiria.

P5 release on pc looks possible now, let's hope sega pulls through.
