Game of the year

Postby Queen Skillage » 03 Dec 2012, 13:59

All the big games are out now so it's a good time as any to have the inevitable game of the year thread.

Looking back it's been a pretty lean year, there's been good games but not nearly as many for me, especially at this time of year.

Mine would have to be Max Payne 3. With Hitman, Borderlands 2, AC3 and Lollipop Chainsaw getting honourable mentions.

Far Cry 3 by a country mile for me. And I'm still only early on in it!

Game of the year next year should be a real humdinger!

There are a lot of games I havent played this year, however my top 2 are the walking dead (for reasons obvious to everyone apart from Crispy :lol: ) and Hitman Absolution, which I have had an absolute blast playing so far. I think x-com and halo 4 would be up there had I played them, but ive not got round to it yet. Guess my top 3 would be:

1. The Walking Dead
2. Hitman Absolution
2. Uncharted: Golden Abyss

Probably max payne or mass effect for I, but I've not played many of this years games. In fact I've only played max payne, mass effect and....that's about it. Done half of AC3 which I'm enjoying.

This thread is a proper tough ask!
Had it been last year then that was easy as there were loadsa games released up until xmas.
Have to think about this one.

Has been a solid but not incredible year for Games.

My Top 3 would be as follows:

Retail
1. Halo 4
2. Borderlands 2
3. Max Payne 3

Downloadable
1. Trials Evolutions
2. Fez
3. Apple Jack 2 (about 80p off of Indie Games and an absolute peach!)

Ive played more Games this year than in the last few and to be honest there have only been a few standouts, lots of middle of the road Games and loads and I didnt even bother finishing.

Roll on 2013!

the demo was one of the most boring things I've ever played!

Only retail games released this year that I've completed are Mass Effect 3 and Halo 4, so I guess my GOTY is Halo 4.

Just looked through my games and realised i haven't played much at all really this year. I'd go for Hitman with Spec Ops getting the surprise of the year.
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.
