Another year gone.Another gaming year gone.

It was a nice year.One word to describe it would b e 'Big' and in a sentence 'Good & Bad'

The console industry saw the WII U

2012 We got loads of info of GTA V and we also got VC on Mobiles.

We had big hits like AssCreed III,Hitman abs,Far cry 3,MP3 and more.Some dissapointing some amazing.

My gaming score for this year:

8.5/10

+ We saw many big sequels
+ GTA V had more info
+ Wii U the first 8-gen console was released
+ The gaming industry experienced good sales
+ A new PS3 Super Slim was released

- Some games were over hyped
- Some games were either over or underrated
- Some games did not sell well despite good reviews.ex: Sleeping Dogs
- Black Ops II did not sell more than MW3.The first COD game not to outsell it's predecessor in a long time.Some reckon gamers are losing interest in the series
- The New Super Slim PS3 was not a big sucess.PS3 Gamers say that it has overheating and other issues

Stick ON Topic.No fanboy wars.

This year was extreamly poor for gaming, 5.2/10

- Vita didn't turn out to be that great
- Same with the Wii U
- Game of the year went to a game about zombies
- We had hardly any exclusive titles, apart from Halo 4 and Journey
- Another COD game
- And despite it being 15 years of Crash Bandicoot or 25 years of Mega Man nothing was announced for either of them
- And don't get me started on Mass Effect 3
- Max Payne didn't get nominated for game of the year
- No inFAMOUS 3 announcement
- THQ gone bankrupt

And the good things
+ A new franchise in Dishonered
+ Max Payne 3
+ Heaps of GTA V info
+ A new Franchise in Playstation All stars

I just hope that 2013 is a better year for gaming

2012 f*cking sucked. The only game I REALLY enjoyed was Max Payne 3, which probably lies in my top 10. But the rest is just an overrated sh*t, in my opinion.

2011 had more of interesting titles: Skyrim, MGS HD Collection, L.A. Noire, Deus Ex: Human Revolution...

2013 looks very promising: GTA V, Watch Dogs, The Last of Us, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Star Wars 1313, Beyond: Two Souls, MGS: Ground Zeroes... Could be the best year in this generation gaming.

2011 has been the best year recently. All of the good titles for this year got pushed back into 2013.

Rate this year: 3/10

Horrible year for gaming.

Here are every new game i got this year:
AMY: Total crap heap game. Totally regret buying.
Resident Evil 6: What a terrible excuse for resident evil. I wish they would go back to the old way it was.
Silent Hill Downpour: An OK game overall, but very boring after a little bit, and a TERRIBLE ending.
I Am Alive: A good game, but the ending was crap.
The Walking Dead: The only reason my rating got a 3 instead of 0. An Amazing game with a great story and characters.
Hydophobia Prophecy: an alright game, terrible ending.

Even though the games that game out this year were crap (except the Walking Dead), the uprise of Kickstarer and crowdfunded games has become a great help for developers which will lead to good games in the future.

Especially RPG's were hell-a-bad this year, let's hope next year will bring something better.

+ Sleeping Dogs
+ The Walking Dead
++ Kickstarter

- Max Payne 3
- Diablo 3
- RE 6
- Mass Effect 3
- OUYA (seriously, what the f*ck?)

Rating: 2.6/10

I agree, last year was so boring for gaming.
Only really liked Forza 4 from that year. TDU 2 came out that year, confused.gif but... barf8bd.gif
Horrible f*cking game that was. It was a shame I could gladly play tdu1 after playing 2.
Last year: 4.9/10
This year: 8.5/10

Pretty much the same as last year I think. It's hard for me to judge as I haven't played a lot of this year's games that I intend to get yet(eg. Halo 4, Assassin's Creed 3, Far Cry 3 etc.) Most of the games I bought this year actually came out last year such as Uncharted 3, MW3, Battlefield 3, and Portal 2.

My game of the year would be Max Payne 3 though. Runner up going to Sleeping Dogs.

2012 was the worst year in gaming. But next year theres good titles coming at least. The best years for gaming imo were 1998-2005.


2008 had some good titles too like Fallout 3 and GTA IV.

2011 > 2012, sadly.

Skyrim, L.A. Noire, Mortal Kombat, Arkham City, Dead Space 2 > Mass Effect 3, Max Payne 3, Twisted Metal (so depressing that MP sucked), Assassin's Creed III

If 2012 gets an 8.5/10, then 2011 gets an 8.75/10. The only years this gen that have been 9/10 or above for me are 2008 (IV, Fallout 3, Metal Gear Solid 4, Dead Space) and 2010 (RDR, New Vegas, Mass Effect 2). Between V, The Last of Us, and the next MGS, 2013 should be 10/10. icon14.gif

Yea this year wasn't that good. The only games i got were Assassin's Creed III, and Halo 4. And while i thought AC3 was awesome it wasn't as good as the other titles and Halo 4 gets worse and worse as you play the multiplayer more.

2011 wasn't that good either but was better then 2012. I actually think 2007 and 2010 were extremely good gaming years

Not the greatest year, I personally thought that 2011 was better with Driver SF, Deus Ex, Skyrim and Portal 2. 2012 gave some great games like Max Payne 3, Walking Dead, Spec Ops, Silent Hill Downpour and such but overall I thought 2011 had better quality.
Still better than 2010, where the only really exceptionally good game was RDR.

What else would it be?

This year was absolute sh*te just in the fact there were practically no decent RPG's, and it's sad that Kickstarter has to save us in 2013 with Wasteland 2 and PE.

The only games that "stood out" positively in any way, shape or form was The Walking Dead and DayZ. Everything else was either flat-out bad, disappointing, or just forgettable. Oh yeah, Hotline Miami was pretty good as well.

So, lets consider the games I enjoyed the most were:

TWD (Made by a studio that has a weak track record, and barely qualified as a video game)
DayZ (a free mod that was rampant with glitches)
Hotline Miami (an obscure indie game made by 2 people)

And my 2 most anticipated games in 2013 are both crowd-funded games. I'm not even looking forward to GTA V as it's the first GTA since GTA 2 that I haven't pre-ordered at the first opportunity. Rockstar have let me sorely let me down with their recent releases.

In summary: AAA studios need to get their sh*t together.

You're f*cking kidding me? How in the actual f*ck were those the only two good games this year? So much bitching and idiotic moaning in this topic it's ridiculous.

Dishonored
Far Cry 3
Planetside 2
Mechwarrior Online

Assassin's Creed 3

Mass Effect 3
The Walking Dead
DayZ
Sleeping Dogs
Max Payne 3
Not to mention the whole plethora of incredible indies that came out this year.

It is absolutely my belief those 3 games were, among the games I've played released in 2012, the ones that stood out to me the most. I'm not sure what your problem is against people possessing particular opinions or viewpoints. I could sit here and say "how in the actual f*ck did you enjoy drivel like Mass Effect 3" but I don't because I understand people have opinions and I don't go out of my way belittling people that I disagree with - at least not without good reason.

Also, I clearly stated in my post

QUOTE

And with that in mind did you really expect me to list absolute handfuls of games like you did? Unless there was something that skipped my radar, there were zero RPG releases this year that caught my attention.

This thread is about expressing our opinions on games released in 2012, good AND bad. If that is too much an issue for you to grasp and understand then I'm sorry.

EDIT - You listed Planetside 2, and I'll agree that was enjoyable this year. I had forgotten about that. Also FTL: Faster Than Light.

2011 was horrible and sh*tty games came out taht year, IMO.

I'm not sure yet cause 2011 had Skyrim, but pretty soon I'm getting 3 games that I've seen by people be called "GOTY", which are The Walking Dead, Assassins Creed III, and Far Cry 3. So I haven't decided yet, not until I've played those 3.

It wasnt great but it was pretty damn solid. Diablo 3 was great, Max Payne 3 was great, Dishonored was awesome and a great new IP, Mass Effect 3 was good and the extended versions leaves less holes, FTL was pretty good for what it is, Planetside 2 has some serious things going for it and Farcry 3 was great. Then theres loads of just "good" games that you can have alot of fun with like Sleeping Dogs or Darksiders 2. Also CS:GO is f*cking great and keeps getting better, and as far as BO goes its the best Cod since Cod4 and its actually really solid.

On the MMO side of things both Retribution for Eve and Myst for WoW have been the best expansions in a few years and are both much better games for it.

So no, not that bad.
