Hello guys,

I'm somewhat sure that there's a more commonly used synonym for "long-awaited" but I can't remember what it is. If we want to say, for instance, that a long-awaited video game has been finally released, what would be the most appropriate word to use here? I think there is anticipated or expected, but those do not emphasise the fact that the thing in question has been anticipated for a long time.

I think there is another word, but I can't remember what it is. I might be wrong, after all. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
Louie.

Right off the top of my head, nothing comes to me but 'long-awaited' or anticipated.

I remember... I think "highly anticipated" is what I've been looking for. Not an actual phrase, but I guess it's how I've always seen it.
ATTN: GRAMMAR EXPERTS/WRITERS/ENGLISH WIZ'! (Was that even correctly used - Wiz'? Or is it Wizs' - the 2'nd in guessing!). Anyways, I'm trying to pay someone a compliment on social media; but I'm afraid to sound grammatically incorrect... so here's the situation:

said friend just received formal recognition on a well known public website. Friend and I are very good friends, and I want to compliment him - without sounding cliche, boring, etc. Here's what I want to say, "Congratulations Brandon, it seems a little recognition has long-awaited you!" Meaning, (in my opinion), seems like you've been very deserving of a little appraise!
Am I right, or does it sound awkward?

Thanks in advance ladies and gentlemen!
..a little recognition has been long overdue?
