A number of games are released each and every year. Some are horrible, some are great. But which game that came in 2012 stands out above and beyond the rest? The nominees are:
Mass Effect 3
Guild Wars 2
And the winner of the 2012 Best Gameslave Game of the Year is Borderlands 2. This game has it all. It has an excellent shooting mechanic, masterful use of RPG elements, single and mutli-player gameplay this game deserves Game of the Year. Want to know more about what makes this game so freaking awesome? Check out the review IrishPride did on it.
Every year there are games that people expect great things from. They expect them to be the epitome of gaming, they expect nothing but the best. Too bad some of these game let down the player. The game is not what they expected and it disappoints the player. We did not have a bunch of games this year that let us down, but that does not mean we did not have any.
Diablo III was expected to be great. It was expected to be the next great game we played over and over. But, while it was a good game, it was not the game we expected. We had fun with it, but it was not the greatness we expected. Sure they are still patching it and making changes, but as of now the game, while good, was a disappointment to a number of gamers.
WIth each new year we see more and more great games. We cannot wait to play the newest things that come out, but a few always stand out above the rest. Here are the games that we cannot wait to play.
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm
Whatever the next Zelda game is
The Wonderful 101
Of these one stands above the rest. Bioshock Infinite is set to come out on March 26, 2013. Given how good the original BioShock, and that the same team is making this one, people cannot wait to play this game.
Every year people find that games keep their attention far past their initial release date. THey continue to be fun for a long time. Sometime the game came out just the last year, other times the game came out several years ago but we never stopped playing it. Here is our list of game for this years awards.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Plants Vs Zombies
League of Legends
And this year we choose The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Yes this was the game of the year last year, no these will not always match up like that. It just happened to be that way. Mix this with continues expansions and long gameplay to begin with, this game earned this award.
Every year there are games that are great games, but I did not get a chance to play them. For some reason or another I failed to purchase them, or I purchased them and did not play them. This happens to all of us, but there are times that it is a shame we missed the game. Our choices for these games this year are:
The Walking Dead
Yeah, that is a pretty short list. The game that we all wish we had played is Journey. Everyone has said the game is great and that it has to be played. It has been released for the PS3 is both PSN form and disc. Had we played it it most likely would have been on a few more of these lists. Here is hoping that we take time to play it this year.
