I gotta say, there are to many good games coming out this year, or are already released.

I do have lots of time to spend of finishing my games. My school year starts next year in February.

Black Ops 2 came out, playing(MP) the hell out of it!
Already rank 49, pretty fast for a casual gamer.

And assassins creed 3 just came out too, love it so far!
First assassins creed game i will finish, and maybe after i will be finished AC2(thank god for savegame storing on there servers).

Hitman Absolution also coming out this week, appears to be a good game too.
But haven't bought it yet.

And the best game of em all in my opinion is Far Cry 3, wich comes out 29th this month.

It's kinda frustrating, what to play, what to play lol.

What year was for you the best? So far 2012 is mine, and let's op 21 dec 2012 won't happen haha

I'm not really keeping track but for me it was just decent, since I prefer RPGs and in that department it was kind of a light year. I love the action games though, like Sleeping Dogs, Max Payne 3 and now Assassin's Creed 3. Far Cry 3 looks very good, nothing like the second that I didn't like much.

In the "surpsie" category I would mention Dishonored and The Walking dead, solid games that are worth the time and money and that I didn't know much of till their release.

That is the primary reason my friend why I'm not getting my hopes up for being able to finish those games.

There are lots of good games this year. Assassins Creed 3 being my most awaited game. Far Cry 3 looks good. I loved NFS The Run too. Hopefully the world doesn't end this Dec 21.

I think it's been an okay year. I've not actually got many of the games I wanted this year, so far. I'd still like to get Dishonored, Max Payne 3, Ass Creed 3.

But! I do have Halo 4 (don't hurt me), awwwww yeah! I don't know why but I can't get enough Halo. I absolutely love it, all of it and everything about it. Halo is the only reason I still have a 360 though.

A great year for indie games IMO. Big blockbusters not so much as there were too many sequels

cant think of a better year for pc games than 2003. The last year I can remember a true PC specific high value production game being released.

I was just thinking that for me personally this year is the best in ages. we had D3, GW2, rFactor 2 beta, major expansions to MMOs, also a lot of great titles announced for next year. other than that I'd have to say 1992.

Half Life 2, Doom 3, Far Cry, Unreal Tournament 2004, GTA Vice City, Halo 2, World of Warcraft, NFS Underground 2...

Personally, this year has had some really good releases. But, last year was a better year for games in my eyes.
While 2012 has giving up some great games with games like The Darkness II, Max Payne 3, Darksiders II, Borderlands 2, Sleeping Dogs and DisHonored... I personally didn't find a whole lot this year I felt I really wanted to buy.

Other then the games listed above I was horribly letdown with The Syndicate and Mass Effect 3. And the only console title I bought was HALO 4.


2011 offered up so many more games, and so many more that I had an absolute blast with.

Dead Space 2, Bulletstorm, Crysis 2, Portal 2, DNF, Alice: Madness Returns, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Dead Island, Serious Sam 3: BFE, Skyrim, Warhammer 40K: Space Marine, Saints Row: The Third, RAGE, Batman: Arkham City....

Add in a couple games that were fun (gameplay wise) but were lacking like FEAR 3 and Hard Reset. Then toss out a couple letdowns like Homefront and Postal III.
And on the console side I got Gears of War 3, Mortal Kombat, LA Noire and Shadows of the Damned.

This has been a good year, but 2011 was an amazing year.

Probably, but I think it will still come out in 2013 fall/winter, like it was with GTA 4. Sucks that there's nothing official yet.

Why when people say 2004, nobody lists Painkiller? Such a fantastic game.

And personally, I thought 2007 was a bit overrated.
While it did see the release of a lot of games people loved... for me, it was rather average.
As I found CoD4 to be ungodly overrated. An average game at best with a crap story.

Crysis was a huge disappointment to me. Great tech, terrible game.
BioShock started awesome but fell apart incredibly fast. And STALKER was fun.
Episode 2 and Portal were great.

But, not a lot else that year that I was all "YAY" about.

It had potential but has proven to be a bit of a disappointment. Hitman so far has been mediocre, not bad but also not great. Borderlands was great but the level cap has turned it in to a tiresome game haven't even bothered to play the latest DLC for it.

On the other hand Dishonoured was fantastic, a totally new IP that was great, a rarity in this sequel driven world. Walking Dead, I am only on ep2 but I am liking what I've seen so far, Faster Than Light was an amazingly addictive game and I plan on getting the latest by the guys behind World Of Goo, Little Inferno.

The year has had some good games but it's had enough potential greatness that has fallen short to stop it being the greatest year ever.

This year, because I get to play all the great games that came before.
Just finished replaying FFX yesterday, RE Remake before that, Twilight Princess before that ... perfection.
