What are yours? For me, it was Dishonored for both. Blink makes that game way too simple on normal. I'm considering bumping up the difficulty. Also, while I love the world building and the idea of the art style, man does that game look TERRIBLE on 360, with some of the lowest resolution textures I've ever seen on this generation of hardware (the foliage in particular looks godawful).Thank goodness it runs smoothly and plays great, because otherwise...yeesh.

I was playing a match of AE2012 online when midnight hit. So that for both.

#3 Posted by me3639 (2006 posts) -

Borderlands 2. I have been off for nearly a week from work and have spent a lot of time playing this game. Its pretty damn good.

Hmm well I was playing Persona 3 two nights ago, so that would be my last. And after the ball dropped I played PS All-Stars with some friends, so that'd be my first of the year.

#5 Posted by Bishna (339 posts) -

Last played was Far Cry 3, first was Don't Starve.

#6 Posted by triple07 (1240 posts) -

Endless Space for both. I was playing it a bit before midnight and played it a couple turns before afterwards.

Mega Man on the 3DS virtual console last night was the last game I played in 2012. Proffesor Layton & The Miracle Mask was the first of 2013 as I was able to download my free 3DS game as soon as it hit the 1st.

Last game played was FTL, first game still up for grabs, I get the feeling it will be Mark of the Ninja though since its on sale on steam right now.

Crusader Kings II for both. Assassinated my two sons who were going to inherit a good chunk of my demesne due to some weird workaround because of shitty succession laws and managed to do a whole lot of nothing for ten years or so.

This game is sort of wilting, it is my first 'real' game, so I may have to start a new campaign. Might try my hand at Ireland.

Half LIfe 2!!!!! :D

#11 Posted by Raven10 (2067 posts) -

Last game was Curiosity. First one hasn't happened yet.

#12 Edited by ConfusedOwl (1038 posts) -

Beat Assassin's Creed 3 before the end of 2012. First game played this year is Dragon Quest 8.

Forza Horizon - Rally DLC is da shit!

#14 Posted by RecSpec (4658 posts) -

Mass Effect/Mass Effect

#15 Posted by Fearbeard (865 posts) -

Need for Speed: Most Wanted for both.

Got my 3 pro mods achievement for online multiplayer so now I'll never play that again.

I really don't see the appeal of the multiplayer. I think takedowns are fun in races, but don't see the point of them at meet ups. Plus I had all the SP I needed from single player so I didn't really feel any incentive to win races or get takedowns at meet ups. I think I'll go back to Forza Horizon for my multiplayer fix.

I had a blast with the single player though. The cops were pointless, annoying and a huge step back from Hot Pursuit but the races were all fun. I would have liked some miscellaneous challenges like drift challenges or jump challenges, but oh well.

Dark Souls and Skylanders: Giants respectively.

#17 Posted by Kerned (1183 posts) -
#18 Posted by raidingkvatch (1201 posts) -

Civ V for both

#19 Posted by believer258 (12959 posts) -

Metroid Prime.

Incidentally, I first played Metroid Prime when I got a Gamecube for Christmas in 2003 so I was most likely also doing the exact same thing a decade ago, with the same disc too!

Man, that game is fucking amazing. It's gonna be a good year. Fuck, I'm gonna be a senior in college this fall, a prospect which is both very exciting and scary as hell.

Last Game FORZA Horzion, First Game FORZA Horizon.

This game is so fucking good and i don't even like racing games

#21 Posted by Hailinel (25787 posts) -

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge in 2012 (still not quite midnight here on the west coast), and will likely be Razor's Edge when I pick up where I left off tomorrow.

#22 Posted by awesomeusername (4535 posts) -

NBA Jam: On Fire Edition for both.

#23 Posted by cspiffo (874 posts) -

Last 2012: FTL, First 2013: FTL

Damn you addictive games!!!

#24 Posted by Dolphin_Butter (1984 posts) -

In training mode for Persona 4 Arena when it turned midnight. So that for both.

I'm the exact same. My first game will ether be Borderlands 2 or Mark of the Ninja since I've been playing both of those.

#26 Posted by _Chad (999 posts) -

I'm currently playing Oblivion and it's 11:58 PST. It's the only game I own that I haven't finished or have the desire to finish.

#27 Posted by Korolev (1794 posts) -

Persona 4 Golden was the last game I played in 2012. It is the first game I played in 2013 - because I played it through midnight.

#28 Posted by StarvingGamer (9173 posts) -

Don't Starve, both sides, one session

I am getting ready for Anarchy Reigns and then to have Giant Bomb shit all over it

#31 Posted by Hizang (9359 posts) -

XCOM was my last, not played anything yet.

#32 Posted by Natedogg2 (479 posts) -

The last game of 2012 for me was Borderlands 2. The first game of 2013 is more than likely going to be Civilization V.

#33 Posted by FreakAche (3028 posts) -

Last game in 2012 was Mario Kart Double Dash. First game in 2013 was Rock Band 2.

#34 Posted by ClairvoyantVibrations (1018 posts) -

Last game I played in 2012 was BF 3, first game in 2013 is Persona 4.

#35 Posted by Meepasaurus (242 posts) -

Played some TF2 just for the hell of it, and then some more Don't Starve.

#36 Posted by Sterling (3369 posts) -

Last of 2012: Final Fantasy Mystic Quest

First of 2013: Wolfenstein 3D

Mark of the Ninja for both as I had not yet finished it yesterday only just beat it this morning.

#40 Posted by EquitasInvictus (2067 posts) -

Last game of 2012: Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes (Far Cry 3 before that.)

First game of 2013: Battlefield 3 since I decided to check out Armored Kill and Aftermath, neither of which I've played up until then. Really liked the former; I'm really itching for another good game with tanks now.

#41 Posted by Imsorrymsjackson (866 posts) -

Going to start with some FTL.

#42 Posted by MistaSparkle (2283 posts) -

Lost a game of League of Legends in 2012. My win percentage for 2013 is 100%. Getting pretty good at that Amumu jungle, gotta work on counter-jungling though.

#43 Posted by Jimbo (10265 posts) -

FTL / Zeus (city builder)

#44 Posted by Yummylee (23488 posts) -

XCOM on both accounts.

#45 Posted by david3cm (677 posts) -

MGS4 last year, probably MGS4 when I get home tonight. Never played it before, that game is pretty cool.

#46 Posted by blueinferno (480 posts) -

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess; the way it was meant to be played on the GameCube. Probably kick off 2013 with that, too. Or you know...one of those modern games.

#47 Posted by ShaggE (7234 posts) -

Dead Island last year, nothing yet this year. Thinking maybe Borderlands 2 or XCOM, or maybe something completely different.

#48 Posted by MEATBALL (4025 posts) -

Paper Mario Sticker Star on both counts. Seems like a pretty underrated game that people have discounted because it dares to take the series in a different direction. So far I'm finding it extremely creative and well designed.

#49 Posted by Hizang (9359 posts) -

My first game was XCOM as I predicted, but I don't think I want to play that game anymore. It's just crazy hard and most of the time it's based around luck.

#50 Posted by DarthOrange (4124 posts) -

Last game was Angry Birds Star Wars. Still haven't played anything this year.
