I havn't been that compelled by many of the new releases this year so far, the only new releases I have bought were:

Out of the games listed I feel despite its issues ME3 is the best so far but it probably won't be my game of the year. I'd say that's gonna be Borderlands 2.

What games have you picked up this year so far?

What's your current favorite?

What do you think will be your favorite game of the year?

I just realized that, so far, I didn't buy a single game this year! I'm still trying to get through all the games i bought last year...and then again, in my opinion, there haven't been too many good games so far.

My brother just bought Final Fantasy XIII-2 if that counts. I didn't buy it, but.. Yeah, if that doesn't count, then I've not bought anything yet.


Wait, shit, I bought Catherine!

I think Xenoblade might be it. Persona 4, if you're willing to stretch that definition in ways that would still be wrong.

#5 Posted by benspyda (2050 posts) -

@chan05: Last year had Dead Space 2 early on that I loved and the year before Bayonetta, Darksiders and ME2. This year has been a little bit of a let down so far.

SSX! That is all.

#7 Edited by MooseyMcMan (11378 posts) -

Mass Effect 3 and Xenoblade. It's worth noting that I want to buy Yakuza Dead Souls, I just haven't gotten around to it yet. And I haven't played Xenoblade yet, and won't have a chance to for about a month. The reason I bought it now is to get it whilst it's easy to find at a reasonable price (not that I think it'll be super rare a month from now, I just wanted to get one).

#8 Edited by Redbullet685 (6082 posts) -

SSX is the only that I've bought on disc. I've also bought Journey, Shoot Many Robots, NFL Blitz, Shank 2, and Alan Wake's American Nightmare on PSN/XBLA. My favorite is Journey.

0 I think. I've bought games that came out last year on sale, though. Not for a lack of wanting to though, just a lack of money to spend on games.

#10 Edited by Cathryn (550 posts) -

Tales of Graces F, Xenoblade Chronicles, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2, and Hakuoki.

I think that might actually be it for me this year, but who knows what'll come out later on that might catch my fancy. If I get a Vita or 3DS, this list will probably get longer, but minus that, who knows?

#11 Posted by DillonWerner (1520 posts) -

Mass Effect is all I can think of, not many have caught my eye yet.

#12 Posted by InfiniteSpark (314 posts) -

A good amount so far, at least my brother's plowing through 'em. I still have yet to dig deep. At least this summer looks pretty thin in big releases, so hopefully I'll finish some of these games.

BlazBlue CSE, FF XIII-2, Journey, SMT: DS2, SFxT, SSX, Twisted Metal, Xenoblade Chronicles

Final Fantasy XIII-2, Syndicate, SSX, Mass Effect, Kingdoms of Amalur (yet to break the seal) Ninja Gaiden 3 (still sealed) NeverDead (still sealed) Darkness 2, Resident Evil: Op Racoon, Twisted Metal, Binary Domain (still sealed) Silent Hill Downpour (still sealed)

I realise i buy too many games, i suppose that's the peril of working in a game related business.

#15 Posted by FancySoapsMan (5818 posts) -

Final Fantasy XIII-2, Devil Survivor 2, Silent Hill Downpour, and Xenoblade Chronicles.

I'm also thinking about getting The Witcher 2 next week but I don't know if should just yet.

#16 Posted by Phatmac (5726 posts) -

Mass Effect 3. Yeah not a lot of games that I care about this year. Oh and also Journey.

#17 Posted by Kaiserreich (740 posts) -

Crusader Kings II and Fall of the Samurai. What else could a man need.

#18 Posted by James_Giant_Peach (751 posts) -

Mass Effect, SFxT... is that really it!? 2012 has sucked man!

Once Fez comes out, I will have bought two games so far, none of which at retail, the first one being Journey. Nothing's really caught my attention from the first slate of games. Games on my my must-buy list right now are Bioshock: Infinite and Assassin's Creed 3. Hoping we'll hear more about upcoming games that are of high calibre soon, as E3 looms.

#21 Posted by ConfusedOwl (964 posts) -

I've only bought Kingdoms of Amalur and Xenoblade Chronicles. Not much has interested me but I do intend to get Dragons Dogma and The Last Story when they're released.

#22 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7099 posts) -

So far only ME3. On the 17th though, I'm buying The Witcher 2, if that counts. So fucking ready to play that game finally.

#23 Posted by SlasherMan (1725 posts) -

Well, I bought Stacking, Alan Wake, and The Darkness 2 on PC. Final Fantasy XIII-2 on PS3.

Right now though, I'm just trying to clear some of the backlog before I buy any more games. Really going on a gaming binge of sorts right now since I have some free time.

#24 Posted by Animasta (14719 posts) -

Binary Domain (best game so far), ME3, SMT: Devil Survivor 2, Analogue: A Hate Story, Final Fantasy 13-2, Crusader Kings 2

#25 Posted by MikeGosot (3227 posts) -

You're going to make me choose between Binary Domain and Asura's Wrath? Fuck you.

#26 Posted by Gatehouse (705 posts) -

ME3, and that's it. I meant to buy SSX, but just haven't gotten around to it yet.

#27 Posted by Mendelson9 (408 posts) -

The only game I've picked up so far is Journey. The Co-Op is great. I am trying to dwindle down my Steam library of games and started on Oblivion and Dirt 3.

By the way, what is the appropriate way to say Co-Op? Co-op? or CO-OP??

#28 Edited by BBQBram (2291 posts) -

Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection (PAL release was this year). That's pretty much it, but I plan on picking up Fez and The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition soon, and then Max Payne 3 next month. Maybe squeeze in Street Fighter X Tekken or SSX somewhere.

#29 Posted by Hot_Karl (3309 posts) -

I bought UFC Undisputed 3 and I got Call of Juarez & X-Men Destiny used for super cheap (sub-$12 combined). I haven't had cash since quitting my job last November, and I've just been busy with my backlog so no real purchases until Max Payne 3/Diablo III in May.

Mass Effect 3 is the only game from this year that I have played.

#32 Posted by forkboy (1174 posts) -

UFC Undisputed 3 is the only game from 2012 I've bought so far. Will get Mass Effect 3 eventually but probably not until I've finished my playthrough of ME1 & 2 & the export bug in ME3 is fixed (if it hasn't been already)
