I've been having a blast, there were a ton of amazing games in 2012. Then again I'm not one of those people on the internet determined to be angry about everything.
XCOM, Dragon's Dogma, FTL, Hotline Miami, Borderlands 2, Trials: Evolutions, Spelunky (Xbox), Dust, Spec-Ops, Sleeping Dogs, Primal Carnage, La-Mulana, Walking Dead, etc... doesn't exist????
I also happen to like Mass Effect 3 and Serious Sam 3. I'm waiting for Hitman, Halo 4 and haven't played Dishonored yet.
I would say that I'm having a pretty good year.
Edit: FEZ and Binary Domain!!!!
