Fakey's 2012 Games of the Year

I consider 2012 to be a very good year in gaming. It wasn't the best, but there were a lot of solid releases, and I had a great year playing lots of new games, as well as some backlogged games. If 2013 is half as good as 2012 on new releases, I will be happy...mostly because I have quite a few 2012 games yet to play...

Honorable Mentions to My Top 10

I am Alive

I played this game as part of my Extra Life marathon, and I really liked it. The setting and mood was perfect for a Post-Apocalyptic world. It had some problems, but the low cost and short length of the game made it easier for me to forgive the short-comings. I got immersed in the world, and that means a lot to me.


I played this game a month or so ago after finally buying a PS3 (I'm primarily a PC gamer). I played almost the entire game with one other player, and it was a touching experience. The length was perfect for one sitting, but more length would have made the game more substantial to me, even if I had to play with multiple people throughout several sittings.

Games I didn't get to this year that, based on reviews, could have possibly made it to my Top 10...
