Listen, Green Day might have had it all wrong after all. Why sleep through September, when you can instead cuddle up with some of the finest video games to ever grace a console? If July and August were relatively low-key months for video games, then September feels like the first salvo of a war on balanced bank budgets.

Shots fired, EFTs are landing and somebody is waiting for a courier to knock on their door with a delivery of a promise of interactive entertainment. It’s a big month ahead for the industry then, filled with just about every game possible that wants to get in a release before Rockstar unleashes Red Dead Redemption.

From first-party titles such as Marvel’s Spider-Man to Bungie aiming for redemption with Destiny 2: Forsaken, here’s a look at the month ahead. Hold onto your butts folks, this is one heck of a big month!
