Summer Game Fest delivered some exciting reveals of upcoming games for 2024 and 2025, from the Xbox Games Showcase to indie-focused streams like Devolver Direct and Day of the Devs. And the art in some of the upcoming releases has me excited about games again. 

While the demise of E3 could be a sign of decline in the gaming sector, some of the upcoming releases suggests something of a creative resurgence, particularly among  indie developers in particular. Here are the games I'm most looking forward to. Also see our pick of the best games consoles and the best indie games in 2023.
