GOTY 2012

Game of the Year lists are a difficult thing for me to put together. Not only do I always hesitate to create one as I have not played every game released in 2012—releases that could potentially interest me like Sleeping Dogs, FTL and XCOM—but it is also difficult for me to put into a coherent string of words why I love the games that I do.

However, I've told myself "why not?" and have decided to make my own list of my favorite games of 2012.
