Best Games of All Time by Year and Other Categories: 2012

Going to separate each year by best games, honorable mentions, disappointments and overrated.  I like RPGs and strategy games, i.e. I am a real gamer, so Call of Duty and Halo will not be appearing on this list.



Mark of the Ninja – Best stealth game ever, really.

Mass Effect 3 – Mass Effect 2 but worse is still pretty damn good.

Hotline Miami

Honorable Mentions:

XCOM – Many flaws, but great combat system and premise make up for a lot.

Dishonored – Tempted to go overrated for this one, but it is actually good.  Maybe the only Thief sequel we will get for awhile considering the sorry state of Thief 4.

Darksiders 2 – Not as good as the first, but still solid.

Max Payne 3 – Really well done, but not exciting enough to be labelled best of year.

Sleeping Dogs – Better than GTA4!


Xenoblade Chronicles

Dust an Elysian Tail
