What is your Game of the Year for 2012?

Postby scuzzybum » Wed Dec 19, 2012 9:04 pm

Hi all, the year is ending soon and I'm sure everyone has their own gaming highlights during the year.

For me, I thoroughly enjoyed playing XCOM: Enemy Unknown. I played the original during my primary school and to me, this reboot is a breath of fresh air.

Let me paste what I posted in Steam here:
The game is so unpredictable! It lets you feel that you are in control of the situation, and the next moment, it let's you know that you are actually not. Having a smaller squad also makes me feel more attached to each one of my soldiers, making every unfortunate loss even more saddening.


I know a lot of people have faced glitches, but lucky for me I didn't get that much glitches, but I did missed 100% shots... TWICE! Well... It's XCOM baby! :D

Have to say I pre-ordered from GMG cause it was cheap. Looking forward to buying the game on PS3 and plat-ing it in 2013 :D

Another game I thought I will mention is Sleeping Dogs. Though, the story line is really flat to me, and I wish there were more Cantonese dialogue, but I really love the Hong Kong setting, and the car jacking action sequences :D

If there were a poll like the last time I did with the top games finishing off with the poll, I'd vote for these in no order:

Far Cry 3, XCom, Skyrim, Borderlands 2, Walking Dead, Sleeping Dogs.

If I had to choose 3, it would be Sleeping Dogs #1, Far Cry #2 and Borderlands #3.

It's harder to recall the games released in early 2012, which was why I maintained a top games list to give the early releases their due recognition, tho tbh I didn't play many disc games this year.

Skyrim is 2011's GOTY though :D

Maybe can transfer your thread here and have the mods sticky it? Would be a great guide for new comers to PS3 as well.

Hahah oops TBH I almost wanted to type Arkham City too!

I would have to dig up that thread, but there would be a big void in it right? I dun suppose anyone continued with the thread after I left?

Maybe start afresh in 2013. Top Games as voted over the years still available on my personal site though. The void is big, 2011 and 2012 missing.

Is walking dead a good game or is it just hyped because of the tv series ?

Nope no end of year review :) I stopped doing it after leaving you-know-where.

Maybe if SGamers.org survives 1 year, I would do one for 2013.

I will also start a top games thread in sgamers.org come 2013.

you referring to the game or tv series story..

i find the tv series boring.. every episodes, its how they survive, kill zombies, throughout the season, few people die, never find out the root cause and find a way to end the outbreak.
