need I say more ?
2. Diablo III
Common blizzard you can do it!
3. Shadows of the Damned
too high expectations I know
4. Dark Souls
more, i want more
5. Batman: Arkham City
6. Battlefield 3
another pair of sequels I know, but these two looks sooo good
has this one gone completly under the RADAR ?
8. Torchlight II
"new and improved with full co-op multiplayer"
put it at #5 if Diablo becomes officially a 2012 release
9. Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten
I really didn't wanted to finish my list with some rematered game collection (as good as they are)
and I'm petty sure my other favorites will get delayed (I'm looking at you Skyrim)
