GOTY 2012

If you would have come up to me on January 1st of the 20-doz and told me at the end of this year Borderlands 2 would be nowhere on my Top 10 games of the year I would have called you a fool. WIth that being said this year was full of surprises for me. I thought Spec Ops would be interesting but wouldn't live up to it's potential, I thought there was less than a 1% chance of me ever playing another game with zombies in it and I thought Forza Horizon was going to be a pile of hot garbage but I was so very wrong.

Being a Game of the Year list, it should go without saying that there will be some spoilers (The Walking Dead) and controversial opinions (Mass Effect 3) on this page. You have been warned.

Honorable Mentions:

Far Cry 3 This game could have been so great. Unfortunately it has one of the worst stories I've experienced in a long while that isn't done any services by the disgusting character's you are trying to save.

Sine Mora Haven't played enough to make a real judgement call, but I like it so far. I'm not sure it could have knocked anything of this list though.

Hotline Miami Second best soundtrack of the year.

VF5 Final Showdown It's just a great fighting game that almost anyone can enjoy no matter their fighting game skills.

Punch Quest Just a fun time waster that deserves a little credit.
