I just want to know what games everyone liked in 2012. My favorite was The Walking Dead. I'll even be bold enough to say its my favorite game of all time.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Persona 4 Golden and Far Cry 3 are the only games from last year that I've really enjoyed. I'm not sure if I've got a favorite out of those three. I've got the Walking Dead and I need to finish it.

It was New Super Mario Bros. Wii. U. Been a long while since we had a 2D Mario game that refined.

Borderlands 2 for me.

I just finished The Walking Dead and really came away impressed. I don't know if it was my favorite of last year, but it's definitely up there, and certainly higher than many games I paid over twice as much for.

Just the first chapter actually. I got distracted by some other games and I'm going to get back to it once I finish them.

I suggest that you play them all in a row. You'll become more attached to the characters.

personal goty was journey. i came away sooo impressed with it for being minimal.

mass effect 3 and the walking dead rounded out 2 and 3

Dust An Elysian Tail was my pick on XBLA, followed closely by Final Fantasy XIII-2 on PS3.

#12 Posted by LongZhiZi (2453 posts) -
Gravity Rush. It's just one of those games that has no peer in its design.

Spec Ops: The Line and Far Cry 3 are both my lead contenders for favorite of 2012, Far Cry 3 for just being the plain most addicting and fun game that year and Spec Ops for being the most important to gaming culture and incredibly well done when it comes to using gaming as a storytelling medium.

I think it's gotta' be Halo 4 for me, some people may argue that there were better quality games released through out 2012, but nothing has kept me coming back for more as much as Halo has annother quality game in a quality series.

At the moment i'm playing Far Cry 3 and i'm enjoying every minute of it so that game is my GOTY.

#16 Posted by 10finalfantasy (25 posts) -

Definitely Persona 4 Golden, and if you don't consider it because it's a re-release, than I would have to go with The Walking Dead

#17 Posted by Bigboi500 (29999 posts) -

Console: Far Cry 3

Handheld: Persona 4 Golden

#18 Posted by Metamania (12015 posts) -

For 2012? Only new game that stood out for me was Dishonored, so that would be my personal GOTY.

#19 Posted by Apocalypse324 (1486 posts) -

Farcry 3 for me as well...I havent finished P4 Golden yet, but so far its amazing as well

Max Payne 3 with The Walking Dead coming second

#22 Posted by Business_Fun (2282 posts) -

Max Payne 3 just manages to beat Dishonored to take my number 1 spot. Kid Icarus: Uprising takes third with honorable mentions going to Dragon's Dogma and Dishonored for introducing the best new IPs of the year.

Would have been ME3, but the crappy ending and the DLC tricks EA pulled on us, took a huge chunk of enjoyment out of this game for me. So I'd say it's the Walking Dead '
#24 Posted by The_Last_Ride (72273 posts) -
Mass Effect 3 for my part
#25 Posted by Legolas_Katarn (15592 posts) -

Mark of the Ninja, The Walking Dead, and Persona 4 Golden if I count a remake.

Probably The Walking Dead if I could only choose one.

Mark of the Ninja is obscenely good and yet I rarely see gamers speak of it on these forums.

Good choice.

Far Cry 3 is really good, so was Mass Effect 3, but I am not picking a GOTY this year. Nothing stood out last year. A lot of really good games, some great ones but nothing the calibur of Uncharted, Batman AA, Mass Effect 2 or MGS4.

Everything felt like been there done that.

Forza Horizon

#29 Posted by UpInFlames (13279 posts) -

Civilization V.

#30 Posted by _Dez_ (2398 posts) -

Honestly, my GOTY wasn't even from this year. First time I played Psychonauts, and it was easily my favorite game of the year. If we're only counting stuff from 2012 then I guess either Spec Ops: The Line or Walking Dead. I don't know, I didn't really play many games realeased this year, and nothing that I did really stood out to me.

#31 Posted by LoG-Sacrament (20397 posts) -
my favorite games from last year are journey, closure, and dishonored.

If we are doing this then Deus Ex - Human Revolution is my GOTY. :P

The Walking Dead is my GOTY. Just incredible.
#34 Posted by coasterguy65 (6015 posts) -

Borderlands 2. I've played the crap out of that game.

#35 Posted by benleslie5 (7875 posts) -

Journey was my game of the year for 2012

#36 Posted by Vari3ty (11111 posts) -

I felt like 2012 really didn't have any one game that really stood out. Borderlands 2 was a lot of fun, The Walking Dead was surprisingly good, and Far Cry 3 was a straight up blast to play at times. But nothing in the year really made me say that there was one game alone that could be called GOTY. 

#37 Posted by hrt_rulz01 (6214 posts) -
Mass Effect 3 was my GOTY. Such an awesome game.
#38 Posted by BatCrazedJoker (1978 posts) -
I do not really have a GOTY
#39 Posted by Deadpool-n (467 posts) -

I would probably go with Farcry 3.

Then some close games are The Walking Dead, Max Payne 3, and I am just now getting into Spec Ops the Line but so far it is pretty good and based on what I've heard I have hopes for it. Then maybe Halo 4 somewhere after that.

Hitman: Absolution

#41 Posted by Thefatness16 (4672 posts) -

Dragon's Dogma.

#42 Posted by Strakha (1788 posts) -

Mass Effect 3. I even finally bought some DLC because of this game after boycotting all DLC this entire generation. Oh well at this point in time I think it's safe to say my DLC boycott didn't work.
