Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 is the easy choice... I think it might be Binary Domain though, it's just SO GOOD
The fighting in Devil Survivor 2 is different from DS1?
I've only played The Darkness 2, SSX, and XBLA games released in 2012. So far I think Alan Wake's American Nightmare is my favorite.
I did just finish Arkham Asylum for the first time and that's the best game that I've played in the last three months regardless of release date.
Journey by far. Completely amazing top to bottom. Mass Effect 3 had great moments but the ending, DLC debacle, and generally roughness of parts held it back. SSX was also a blast to play, but really Journey is going to be hard to beat for all of 2012.
But it isn't out yet.
Pre-order it you whore-spawns of Call of Duty-playing bastards.
The Darkness 2 was pretty short (Compared to other games I've played recently; ME3, Skyrim, KoA, ETC) and it's not my favorite release this year, but I was playing all of those longer games at the same time that Darkness 2 arrived, and I always wanted to play it over everything else! (especially FF XII-2............ at final boss..... have been for a month..... can't bring myself to play it for another 30 minutes even just to get it the fuck over with....eh it wasn't ALL bad........ Well...... I have mixed feelings for that game)
I've actually managed to control my spending this year, and I've only bought one 2012 game - Jagged Alliance: BIA. While it's not a great game by any means, it's much, much better than I'd hoped for and it shows a lot of promise for modders and future patches.
Tribes, by a mile. Been pretty disappointed by 2012 games so far. Parts of ME3 were fantastic, others not so much. SSX managed to hold my attention for a weekend (damn fun weekend though.) The Darkness two was fun but forgettable. Overall, I keep coming back to tribes and playing older games. Just got kid icarus though, and it seems fun. Although it has a similar problem that mario kart has, in that I keep getting my ass handed to me by Japanese kids.
Edit: I forgot that I also played Syndicate, but I thought it was terrible.
