2) Batman Arkham City
3) Final Fantasy XIII-2
4) Mass Effect 2
5) Batman Arkham Asylum

If I am only counting the ones released in 2012

KoA Reckoning
P4G (still working on, but i cant put it down)
i guess Playstation all stars would be the 5th, because i cant think of any others that would fill the void

EDIT: NSMBU would be my number 5

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

"shakes head in amazement"

I have some even more amazing news for you:

Skyrim was released in 2011. WooOOOoooOOOoO!

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.

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.

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