This discussion has probably already been on here but I missed it and I'm not gonna try and dig it up. My 5 top games of 2012 are: Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Dragon's Dogma, Borderlands 2 and Darksiders 2. I started Dishonored but didn't finish so I didn't count it. Max Payne 3 and Spec Ops: The Line were very good too.

Black Ops: Declassified five times.

The Last Story, Binary Domain, Sleeping Dogs, Dishonored, Code of Princess

I'd also add Halo 4, Pandora's Tower, and Rhythm Thief.

Dishonored, The Walking Dead, Borderlands 2, Mass Effect 3, and X-Com: Enemy Unknown.

Honorable mentions: Asura's Wrath and Sleeping Dogs.

An honorable mention for me is Binary Domain, I liked it alot too, and I think if I would've finished Syndicate, it'd be in there somewhere too....

Very difficult. There were some great games this year. For me personally:

Assassin's Creed 3
Dishonored
Sleeping Dogs
Mass Effect 3
Far Cry 3

Lots of 3's this year. Heh.

Edit: Shoot. Totally forgot about Journey. I think that probably bumps Far Cry 3 off my list.

Edit 2: Dammit. I forgot about XCOM too. This is too hard. I can't pick a top 5 because I like all 7 of the games I listed a ton.

I disagree. I think the quality of games overall was rather high this year.

Mass Effect 3 is one of the single greatest games I have ever played. Easily the best game I played in 2012 (including XCOM and Dishonored).

Prior to the extended cut being added, it's absolutely my favorite ending in the history of the medium. The extended cut ruins it a bit, though.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 15, 2013 1:27:30 AM PST
I've heard ME3 is great and that the only issue 99% of detractors took with it was the ending.

I'll eventually work my way to it and see how it works for me.

"shakes head in amazement"

Skyrim was released in 2011. WooOOOoooOOOoO!

Borderlands 2

Lollipop Chainsaw
AC3

Honorable Mention:
Halo 4
Blops 2

I found Lollipop Chainsaw uninspiring. It wanted to be edgy but didn't understand what edgy truly was...at least in my opinion.
