True story and 2013 looking good. Best for gaming also. 2010 and 11 were also good years for gaming. Every year is a good year for gaming! This is a very original thread. I can't wait to fvcking say this again like everybody else.

Definitely sub-par for exclusives. There were better multiplat games in 2012. I thought 2011 was a bit better overall. 2013 isn't looking much better to me.

1998 exists

But this year is A LOT better than this forum makes it out to be. The thing is this year didn't have the giant d1ck rides other years have had. It lacks the Uncharted 2 or the Mass Effect 2 or the MGS 4.

But Dishonored, Hotline Miami, Fez, Dust, Virtua Fighter 5 FS, King of Fighters 13, Binary Domain, Xcom, The Walking Dead, Far Cry 3, Deadlight, Journey, etc. It's been a good year.

Plus you still had middle of the pack good stuff like Mass Effect 3, Halo 4s multiplayer, Twisted Metal, etc

They say that every year, but it was a great year for me

  • Legend of Grimrock
  • Tribes: Ascend
  • Torchlight 2
  • Civ5: Gods and Kings
  • War of the Roses
  • FTL: Faster Than Light
  • Planetside 2
  • Crusader Knights 2
  • Dear Esther
  • Blacklight: Retribution

And some awesome multiplats

  • Max Payne 3
  • XCOM: Enemy Unknown
  • Walking Dead

Nevermind the well recieved titles that i wanna get into soon enough like Far Cry 3, Guild Wars 2, Borderlands 2, Dishonored, etc.

Overall, a great year.

2012 was good for me in terms of RPGs, but I'm more excited for 2013 tbh due to the diversity in titles being released that I'm interested in.

2012 was pretty meh, partially because it came right after 2011 which was an amazing year.

Most years are 'saved' by multiplats. Multiplats far outweigh exclusives in number and quality.

As previously mentioned, 1998 has yet to be topped. That year had a bit of everything, greatness coming from all directions. But this year wasn't too shabby. It gave us Spelunky, Max Payne 3, Dishonored, The Walking Dead, among others. I was satisfied.

In my honest opinion, 2012 was easily among the weakest years for gaming in recent memory. 2011 was superband 2013 looks fantastic though

Though this year was kinda "ho-humish", I can't see why everyone is saying that 2013 doesn't look better. Bioshock Infinite, DMC, MGSR: Resergence, GOW: A, The Last of Us, Pikmin 3, Rayman Legends, Dead Space 3, are but a few that IMHO, already blow the doors off of 2012 easily.

It was a good year. Mass Effect 3, Borderlands 2, Assassin's Creed 3, Sleeping Dogs, Max Payne 3, and more. Granted there were some disappointments(Mass Effect 3's ending and RE6 being a total flop), but it's not the first year to have them. Exclusive-wise, it wasn't great for PS3; just a couple games that sparked my interest and a downloadable title(Journey), but nothing special. I'm fine with one down year for the PS3 so long as the trend doesn't continue.

I'm not sure I agree but I feel like this was definitely the year for indie games and a big over all improvement for game plots.

there were a lot of fun/enjoyable indie games that I played... Qasir al-Wasat The Sea Will Claim Everything Gunlord Diamond Trust of London La-Mulana Mark of the Ninja Primordia Hotline Miami Dyad Receiver etc.. I think I enjoyed this year more than 2011 at least..
