Spec Ops: The Line is worth a mention. It's not perfect, but in terms of game as story telling device and social commentary, it's one of the best ever.

Here's my favorite games of '12 in no particular order, I'm sure some you haven't heard of.

Natural Selection 2 -since I have been playing it lots and lots
Prototype 2 -surprisingly enjoyed it more than the first one
Hitman Absolution -enjoying finding creative ways to reduce target life expectancy
Symphony- turning my mass music collection into a galaga style battlefield that uses my music to make levels.
Primal Carnage - Dinos fighting humans in team deathmatch battles...yes...yes oh yes.

Dark Souls Artorias of the Abyss / PC Prepare to Die Edition.

that is all. Best game of all time. I just finished Dishonoured and it was fun but it's no Demon Souls/Dark Souls for intelligent combat. You can see they were inspired by DS to make the enemies intelligent in a way that doesn't just make them God of War style knockover enemies but it wasn't very challenging. I think you have to really like steampunk, which doesn't really do it for me.

I can't play another Oblivion/Fallout RPG. I hate the art direction and I'm tired of sifting through endless gear and shit to sell.

1.)Journey. It might be short and only played it once, but it was an awesome experience. ( great soundtrack too )

2.) FTL: really nifty game.

plenty of other games that arent exactly AAA games that are excellent.

Indie games are really starting to shine, especially with how well they work with communities to adjust the product and integrate content requests.

Ya I forgot about Journey. It was amazing and I can't remember the last time a game filled me with child-like wonder. It was like a flying dream. I need to play that again. Amazing

speaking of dark souls, never played it. does it have a good narrative? I missed the sale on steam :/ I read from a few threads online that it reminds people of vagrant story in some respects. I hope the narrative is good, because if it is, and the combat is cool then it could make for an outstanding game.

ya, the narrative is really good and the art direction together with the difficulty level make it a unique and incredible game. It's similar to The Witcher 2 but the combat doesn't suck and it's more mystical and dark/demonic.

you didnt like witcher 2? ( i only got to chapter 3, so i dont know how it is later )
  01 January 2013
Darksiders 2, it really didn't get the attention it deservered.

Fine I'll bite:

1. Dishonored - I don't know what it is about this game but it was far more diverse and balanced than I ever expected. I also loved the art style which wasn't too in your face.
1. Mass Effect 3 - amazing, but the ending was a bit lackluster
3. Witcher 2 - incredible but crazy hard (thank you walkthroughs on the interwebs)
4. Journey - so different and still so satisfying
5. Halo 4 - slight disappointment since I'm a bonafide Halo junkwad
6. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron - this was actually a pretty fun experience
7. Sleeping Dogs: I need to finish this game, because I have a feeling it's going to move way up on my list.
