Same as last year, a personal record of games I played and finished in 2012 ;)

Cleared it in less than 4 hours. Last stages were pretty difficult compared to the first ones. Just a casual game and fun, makes me remember the ol' Mega Man X. Probably will come back to it to get the achievements.
Actually started it last year, I was missing just the last 2 chapters when this year began. AMAZING game. I totally recommend it for RPG fans, it's story is just mesmerizing and the ending just makes you beg for more. Witcher 2 here I come!
Excellent game, surpasses it's predecessor in almost all aspects. Once again can't wait to hear about the next Assassin's Creed game. Officially my favorite franchise of modern games.
At last, been wanting this game since it came out. I bought it on the christmas Steam sale (couldn't resist myself as usual) and moved it up the pending game list. Loved it from start to finish, the game's art is just fantastic. Absolutely recommendable :D
Finished this game about 2 months ago. I liked very much the inclusion of Disney characters, however, I did not like the game so much. My expectations for this game were a bit too high for what it was worth. I may consider it the first RPG which has disappointed me in all my gaming history.
Got to give it to BioWare, they sure know how to improve in sequels. This game made me play it even on finals week, absolutely incredible. Every mechanic, every bit of story and exploration is amazing in this game. Absolutely WANT Mass Effect 3 right now!
Started it last year and left it to rot for some time. Actually borrowed it from a friend and as he asked me for it, I just had to finish it. I have a mixed opinion about it, I think there's just too much "useless exploration", but certainly the game's story is great, especially at the ending.
I started this game about 2 years ago. Never went fully into it thanks to the lack of a controller (I own the PC version), but now that I own one, I finally played it as it was meant to, and absolutely enjoyed it. It brought me nostalgic memories of when actual adventure games left you with something.
Another game I started a while ago, but never completed. I understand that the gameplay mechanics are great and all, but it is just so frustrating at the final levels when you don't know what the hell to do to get that last puzzle piece. I admit I'm not much of a puzzler, and this gave me, for the lack of a better word, the 'frustration face'.
Thanks to the ridiculous number of games I have purchased in the past (thank you Steam) I have resorted to using the 'fortune cookie' in a great site (www.backloggery.com - find out for yourself what's it about ;D) and this came up. Got to say I did not expect what I got from this game. My only complaint is that this game lacks a GODDAMN MAP. It surely could be useful having one. Aside from that, the gameplay feels unique and brings something new if you haven't played something like this.
After almost a 2 year hiatus (I actually bought this game when it was released) I finished it. I don't understand why I didn't delve into it sooner. Gameplay mechanics, cinematics, music... everything is great here and fits excellently. Couldn't recommend a better RTS right now. I'm actually afraid to play it online... but I may give it a chance later on.
Came back to the game to finish the expansion. I'm afraid to admit that I was not eager to clear this since at the end of the base game I was already fed up with it. The only thing to praise of this is the ending, it stages events for a sequel, which I already own (Overlord II) and probably will play soon.
This game I cleared in two phases: The excited phase and the 'please make it end' phase. At first I marveled myself before the huge improvements over the last game and a very strange story. After around 20 hours of gameplay, the story required me to backtrack to ALL of the game's worlds in order to progress. This made me hate the game. From that point on all I wanted was for it to end, there was no conclusion to the stupid dialogue and all the cliches of a badly written story. And in the end, you don't know what the hell all the madness was for. This game is only for the patient people and/or huge fans of the franchise. I really wouldn't recommend it to anybody.
I admit I expected less from this game (thank you game critics) but it was a blast. I enjoyed the story and the characters pretty much, even when some of them where just recycled material from the first game, as well as some of the worlds you visit. Overall good game, check it out if you're a die hard fan of Star Wars as me ;D
After buying it almost in day one (PC) never got through it because of lack of controller (as you have seen, I'm a controller addict) and finally beat it after almost a year and a half after. I want to announce this game has the most ridiculously difficult levels I have ever played. Took me almost 2 hours in beating Dr. Fetus IN THE LIGHT WORLD. Cannot imagine the dark one, probably will come back to it later.
Fortune Cookie winner, cleared it in 3 hours. I have a strange opinion about this game... it has a different formula however cliche it is according to a shooter game. Still have to clear it with the Scorched faction and achievements... don't know if I will come back to it later on.
There is much positive stuff to say about this game. I'm not going to write an essay about it (though I could) but what I will say is that where Witcher 1 excels, Witcher 2 perfects and revitalizes all the formulas. The difficulty and combat is what really made me want to play even more after finishing it, it's just the best sword combat in a video game that I've ever seen. An absolute must-buy for every gamer.
Another awesome FPS. This game gave me the chills every time a paranormal situation ocurred, especially at the end of the game (no spoilers). Few games manage to blend pure action with the dramatic horror sequences that keep you hooked waiting for another scare. FEAR accomplishes this and more. Already own all the sequels, so probably will continue the saga later on.
Mixed opinion of this game. I really bought it because I am a great fan of the Sands of Time trilogy, and I couldn't be left out when a new game appeared. However, I don't sense any plot elements that could connect to Warrior Within (my favorite in the series) so I ask the writers: why would you make a "Sands of Time interquel, if you don't tie it in?" seriously, what's happening to the writing in video games? Anyhow, I actually enjoyed it 'cause it gave me that feel of the old games, but I really don't see a change in formula or mechanics, it's virtually the same. I only recommend it to die hard fans of the PoP series.
This game is FUCKING PUNISHING. I don't know why people whine some games are hard, this game IS the hard game. Good mechanics in all, but the steep difficulty (even on Normal) just gets too annoying and frustrating, plus, the game is too long for what it can offer. The last 4-5 hours are just the same thing going on and on. Definitely a good 'pick up and play' but not all the way through.
Finally manned up to play the game. I bought almost 2 years ago and never played it because of fear. This time I decided to confront my fears and get through with it. Aside from the scares and the sanity, this is a GREAT game. All puzzles fit and make you think as if you were playing a real adventure game. Hat off to Frictional Games, actually expecting a lot from a Machine for Pigs ;D
Another one of my "nearly" day one purchases. Definitely something I didn't expect in both fronts. Great game, but with a lack of conclusion. The ending feels somewhat shallow and unexplanatory. However I can't wait for the next Darksiders. Definitely an improvement upon the first, but I feel they are very different games at their core. Completely recommendable ;D
Veeeery generic FPS, maybe because I played it until now, maybe in its time it was very good or innovative. The geo-mod tech (ability to destroy terrain) proved to be interesting, but not taken to its full potential.
PC version: This game helped me love point and click games, and put aside my prejudice that those games were slow and boring. Aside from bad animations and a lot of technical flaws, the game proves to be fun and capable of telling a great story.
I expected so much more from this game. Broken controls, mechanics and not a very good aging make this game 'just another one of the bunch'. Very sad really, as I enjoyed so much Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. Good thing it has a sequel and i expect it to be much better than this.
