GOTY 2012

2012 saw me play a huge list of games. Thanks in part to a big back catalogue of titles built up over the years, but also due to PS+ offering a wealth of free games.
 
Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Saints Row: The Third, Motorstorm: Apocalypse, Portal 2, LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean, Singularity, X-Men Origins Wolverine, The Darkness, Enslaved and Rayman Origins are the games that didn't release in 2012 that I managed to play through and finish this year.
 
That being said, I still managed to get through a good chunk of the big 2012 releases as well. Only missing Assassin's Creed 3 (AC fatigue), Dishonored and The Walking Dead (this one, only due to it being banned in Australia - will be picking it up on disc early next year).
 
So without further Apu, I give you my top 10 best games of 2012.

As a person who only played The Darkness II, I will vouch for that game's individual emotional impact. It's just an incredible game.

I definitely wouldn't wish playing the first one on anyone. The game is very archaic and really not very good, extremely hard slog to actually get through. But it does the emotional aspect of the story so well. Changing devs I thought there was no way the same impact would carry across, but to my surprise they did well and improved the gameplay ten fold too.
 
Just disappointing it sold so poorly.
