The 25 most anticipated games of 2013

Browse CNET's gallery of the 25 most anticipated games of 2013 to see what the future of interactive entertainment has in store.

With 2012's best and most disappointing games now behind us, let's look into the future at what 2013 is set to bring. If these titles stay on schedule, this year is already looking to top 2012 in the first four months alone. That's great news for gamers, but terrible news for our wallets.
