Fresh off of our recent 7 Best Video Games of 2011 post, we follow it up with a look at some games to look forward to this new year. This year will see some new games from some extremely popular franchises such as Diablo, Tomb Raider, Grand Theft Auto, and a few others, but it also will see something extra special with the fusion of 2 of the most prolific fighting games in the genres history when Street Fighter meets Tekken. Sure, we’ve seen this before with Street Fighters vs. X-Men and Capcom vs. Marvel, but it’s still cool. We’re definitely looking forward to some Bob vs. Rufus matches. Another game we are very much looking forward to is The Last of Us. It’s another third-person survival horror game in a post-apocalyptic setting, but still looks like it will be a winner.

See some trailers to some highly anticipated video games dropping this year after the jump.
