Schmoes Choice for Game of the Year 2012


EDIT: Changed my GOTY to The Walking Dead. Spectacular game with the most emotional ending I've ever witnessed in a game. 9/10.

2013 looks like a great year. A year from now, I expect Grand Theft Auto V and The Last of Us to be top contenders on many of our lists.

Here's a look at the last 7 years of our favorite games of the year:

Right now, it's definitely Reckoning: Kingdom of Amalur. Such an enjoyable, lengthy game that I enjoyed more than Skyrim (Yeah, I'm one of those guys.)

I've fallen out of love with gaming so I've only played a few games this year, those being Angry Birds Space, Borderlands 2, Final Fantasy Dimensions, and Dishonored. Of those, Borderlands 2 takes the cake.

So Borderlands 2 is my game of the year.

I love the co-op, I love the new skill management, I love all of the guns, and I adore the game's writing, which is beyond hysterical. So many quirky and likable characters, my favorite being Tiny Tina. I wish characters were a bit more customizable and it's annoying how you can't travel between areas while autosaving, but overall it's a very solid game that I'd give an 8/10 with no room for decimals on my scale.

Might have to change my vote. 3 episodes into The Walking Dead, I'm absolutely loving it!

Far Cry 3.

Halo 4 would take a close second place. Still haven't played a few of the heavy hitters though.

So I've played enough games to compile a top ten.

01 Borderlands 2
02 Far Cry 3
03 The Walking Dead
04 Dishonored
05 Angry Birds Space
06 Soul Calibur V
07 Call of Duty: Black Ops II
08 Final Fantasy Dimensions
09 Jak & Daxter HD Collection
10 Devil May Cry HD Collection

Borderlands 2 is still my #1.

I'm not into shooters AT ALL, but even I'll admit that Borderlands 2 looks badass.

I did officially change my GOTY to The Walking Dead. The ending to that game ripped out my soul.

It's funny 'cuz last year I told myself that I was burnt out on shooters but then most of the games I played this year are shooters. I'm not playing games nearly as often as I used to though, so I guess I'm back into the genre.
