Because the distributor here in Turkey screwed up, I didn't get to buy & play Skyrim until mid 2012.

So yeah, to me Skyrim is a "2012 game"...

I'm still playing it. How's that for longevity? I really got my money's worth. Level 62 now and just one achievement left to get! I adore Skyrim, and the Dragonborn DLC has kept me entertained over the past week.

Top games for me this year:

1. Dishonoured (what an absolutely incredible game)
2. Borderlands 2
3. Ghost Recon Future Soldier (surprisingly fun, especially in co-op, and I love co-op games)
4. Halo 4

I kinda want to put Assassin's Creed III on the list too but I haven't finished it yet. And honestly, while the good parts of the game are really good, I think they tried to cram too much into the game, which makes it lose focus.

Oh yeah, Mass Effect 3. People may have an issue with the ending but it's still a fantastic game. Still enjoy the multiplayer as well.

If you like Dishonored and Skyrim, you should definitely play Dark Messiah of Might & Magic

Its a seriously good first-person RPG game developed by Arkane Studios, the people who made Dishonored.

Since when was Halo 4 available for PC?

I'd put ME3 on the list, but the general lack of polish and the slight dumbing-down, bugs that have forced me to scour the internet for solutions and edit savegames using a hex editor and the whole shebang surrounding multiplayer and the various DLCs left a sour taste in my mouth.

I don't play many games (although I buy a lot of them ), so I probably missed some really good ones last year (boy, do I regret not getting Dishonored on Steam Sale - maybe during the next summer sale ), but here is my list:

1. Resonance (the retro-style put me off at first, but I'm so glad I bought it anyway - it's an absolute labour of love and if you like intelligent and challenging point-and-click adventure games then this one will blow your mind)
2. Deponia - another point-and-click adventure game. Ron Gilbert couldn't come up with a better one. Brilliant!
