Now that we’re in a fresh new year of 2018, it’s time to briefly look back on the year we’re leaving behind before setting our sights on the future. When I look back on my Most Anticipated Games of 2017 list, I notice a bit of a pattern forming in both my gaming habits and the industry in general. First, I have only played 2 of the 10 games I mentioned on my list last year: Crash Bandicoot and Tekken 7. Clearly I need to add “buy and play more games” to my resolutions list.

If you’d like to start from the beginning or are looking for a specific developer that on the list, please refer to the bottom of this post for links. Otherwise, welcome back!
In Part 1 we covered from 505 Games all the way to Codemasters and also included DeNA. That means we’re about a quarter through the list. This time we’ll cover the next 11 companies ranging from letters E through K. Remember, I’m totally skipping the bottom two rows with the exception of DeNA and Epic Games, and I’ll be discussing Epic Games in this part.
