In order, based on my preference. I mostly enjoy a good first-person shooter (preferably that involves realism) and a great action-adventure game. I am saddened that there is still no news on the next Uncharted game, but 2013 is by far the most intriguing year perhaps in gaming history. Plus they're announcing PS4 & 720 on E3 in Spring, so get excited gamers. Anyways don't be upset that I won't be listing games like Generals, Crysis 3 or any role-playing games. I just naming 15 games that I feel will blow our minds and that fit my interest as a gamer.

Is AGENT, "The Agency" that people at Sony were so ecstatic about at E3 a couple years ago?
I have a feeling that I will probably get GT3 and Tomb Raider. I've been following Tomb Raider and I really want that franchise to be revived properly. One of those games that used to scare the shit out of me as a kid.
I'm interested in AGENT though.
Good list and write- up. Cheers.

For me, I grew up on Tomb Raider, and if I hear it's been done well, that would be great.
Beyond Two Souls: Frankly it's been a year since I played Quantic's Heavy Rain, and I still don't know if I liked it or not. I'd check out reviews on this. I'd possibly buy it if it rated well enough.
I've really enjoyed the Dead Space series so far. But I gotta say they do get to feeling a little monotonous. I'd buy this though unless I heard something terrible.
I heard really good things about that first Metro game. It sounds like something I'd like, but I gotta draw the line somewhere, and with the time I have to play, I usually cut it off at stuff that isn't AAA release type titles. It's unfortunate, but there's only so much I can do.
This is the first I've heard of Remember Me, and frankly it sounds pretty cool. But much like Metro, I just don't know if I have the time to commit to game by a company I've never played anything with, not Capcom, but Dontnod. But I'd certainly keep tabs on the reviews and see where they took me. The gameplay video looks awesome, and very much like it borrowed pretty heavily from the Assassin's Creed mechanics, so this would get a very strong maybe from me.
Agent, I'd say the same thing as most people ... it's Rockstar. I'd give it a shot for sure. But I was horribly disappointed with LA Noir, but whatever, I trust them enough to roll my 60 bucks worth of dice. I also don't think it's coming out anytime soon.
Grand Theft Auto V ... I'm already Pre-Ordered.
The Last of Us I'm also already pre-ordered on. I can't think any more highly of a video game than I do of the Uncharted Series, so once I found out these guys were doing this, it was an automatic for me. But then finding out it was a post apocolytic open world survival game ... I mean that's why I'm considering buying Metro, and that's a company I don't know and it's first person, so this was a gimme. I was under the impression it was coming out this year though. Frankly I'm fine if it doesn't, I'm still finishing ACIII, and I have Hitman on the shelf.
And Finally, Watchdogs. Much like above, I hold Assassin's Creed in extremely high regard, and with Ubisoft behind this, plus the 20 minute gameplay video I've watched, this is an automatic preorder for me too.
A lot of interesting games, not enough time. I'm definitely getting Splinter Cell: Blacklist, it seems like the story is finally going away from the whiny Sam Fisher of Double Agent and Conviction to taking-care-of-business Sam Fisher. I hope you're able to play much more stealthily than those two as well.
Watchdogs and The Last of Us were on my list as well but I hadn't heard of others that piqued my interest like Agent, Remember Me, and Beyond: Two Souls. I'll eventually play the new MGS as well but it won't be a priority.
