        Fun/good games I played this year:

        Borderlands 2
        Sleeping Dogs
        Xcom
        Dark Souls: Poor Port Edition
        Walking Dead
        95% of Mass Effect 3
        Kingdoms of Amalur
        Dishonored

        Maybe FC3 and AC3 will end up on this list too.

        I'm having a hard time remembering which games came out this year tbh.



        And my #1 Worst game of the year is:


        MEDAL OF HONOR WARFIGHTER!!1!one

          I think Dishonored and CODBLOPS2 are also up there. Borderlands 2 was dope as well.

            It's gotta be Sleeping Dogs for me, especially because it was one of those games that kind of came from out of nowhere and blew me away. I had more fun with it than any of the other games, including Borderlands 2.

            Runner-up is XCOM, just because they did such a great job with it.

            These are just the games I've played. I haven't tried Dishonored yet, although I did purchase it via the GMG $22 deal, so perhaps it will knock out one or both of the games above!

            I think by the time I play Far Cry 3, however, it will become my GOTY for 2012 if it's as good as I'm thinking it's going to be.

              far cry 3 is still to come and ass creed 3 I barely started. Not a great year for PC games imo (one of the worst since I can remember playing games)

              mass erect 3 - my goty by a lightyear so far
              alan wake (pc)
              mark of the ninja
              sleeping dogs
              torchlight 2
              black ops 2

              --- close contenders
              darksiders 2
              tribes ascend
              prototype 2
              Botanicula

              ---most disappointing
              guild wars 2
              counter-strike: go
              dirt: hoedown

              skyrim won last year (BF3 and Witcher 2 runners up)

                  I'm not sure I've played anything that's really had me hooked this year.

                  If I had to pick one, I suppose I'd probably go for the walking dead. A couple of the episodes were really well done.

                      Anyways, my goty is Alan Wake. That game impacted me on many levels. There were a ton of good games this year, and more coming, but I can't see anything better then AW in the next month.

                        Mine would be Max Payne 3; such a slick production and the only game this year I've made the time to sit down and complete.

                        Sleeping Dogs is a close second, even though I haven't had the drive to go back and carry it on, but burning around on a motorbike with metal playing gets it the nod

                        Borderlands 2 comes in a very solid third.

                            Even though I was let down by the original ending as well, I still have to say ME3. 97% of that was a blueprint of how sp games should be.
                            The coin is still turning.

                              1) ME3
                              2) The Walking Dead
                              3) Dishonored

                              Even though ME3 was disappointing and had a terrible ending, it was probably still the best of the year. This was truly a pretty unimpressive year in gaming, last year was much better. Maybe Far Cry 3 can steal it's way into the top, but I doubt it.

                                I'm a dirty heathen that only buys most games later on when there's a sale, so I haven't played most of the big name 2012 games yet. I'd probably vote for Alan Wake also. The gameplay wasn't the most exciting thing ever, but the story and presentation had me by the balls. Story > everything else for me.

                                There are a few games that I would put up there just because of the story. If you had to put it into categories of: Story, Gameplay and Total Package, I'd probably pick a different game for each one.

                                    ME3 gets the nod from me.

                                    I haven't played BL2 or sleeping dogs yet. I just bought Max P3, so not sure what it's going to be like yet.

                                        Borderlands 2, one of the best fps ever, so well rounded, so massive, so much play, so addictive, fun dialogues, excellent voice acting, its story unfolds perfectly, challenging, good ia, and so on. First game ever that made me play it two times in a row.

                                        And sleeping dogs?, cmon, it is very good but the driving/sandbox part sucks

                                                In no specific order:
                                                - Mass Effect 3
                                                - Dark Souls
                                                - Diablo 3 (Yes! Despite the hate, I play it to date and enjoyed it pre patches and more post patches and it does a good job in keeping me coming back for more!)
                                                - CoD Black Ops 2
                                                - Dishonoured (I just got it but the game has Dues Ex written all over it and I love that)
                                                - The Walking Dead
                                                - Sleeping Dogs
                                                - Max Payne 3
                                                - Alan Wake
                                                - Darksiders 2 (noone mentioned it but frankly, it is very well done and a nice step forward from the first one.)

                                                        Yeah how about no. You have a constant standard that was broken. If it was your first Diablo then I would understand completely, but if you tried the best and played the best then there's no other conclusion - and just go read some forums and see which type of players are upset. I'll go bang pots and pans and say: "It's my opinion it's soothing music". No it's not, the world and universe has preset standards, whether it's what seen as tranquil, easy to the ears, these constant standards are found within all lifeforms.

                                                        In summary, Diablo 3 is utter dogsh*t but can be enjoyed by new players to the franchise. It's numerical success was purely due to riding the coattails of it's predecessors. To even suggest it as GOTY when the uproar about how far it veered off and decided to not be an ARPG makes me "lol" because I can't take that seriously. Once again, if people knew what it was now back then, it would have sold considerably less.

                                                            I don't play many games nowdays, however I vote for sleeping dogs for the GOTY so far due to it being a very solid non hyped game with AAA quality; and IMO ME3 can't be GOTY since the only reason people played it was for the story continuity, everything else in it just felt like GoW clone.

                                                            Other than that I can agree with Borderlands 2 being the one of best game in 2012... here's hoping Far Cry 3 will join the rank.
                                                            I guess it's the trend nowdays with games; either you are a hardcore PC GAME, or you live long enough to see yourself become a console port

                                                                I would put up Borderlands 2 and X-COM.

                                                                      So my bet here is Diablo 3.

                                                                        No, you're not the only one who thinks that. Last year around this time, I was waiting for the Steam Christmas sale, so I could get Bulletstorm, Witcher 2, Skyrim, and Deus Ex HR (among other things).

                                                                        Twelve months later, what am I looking forward to buying in this year's sale? Nothing. I'm still having fun with Bulletstorm, Witcher 2, Skyrim, and Deus EX HR.

                                                                        2011 was kind of like 1999 - so many good games came out in one year, that it will probably be a while before we see a year like it again.
