I thought Mass Effect 3 and Assassin's Creed 3 were both fine. Although the endings of both, and the beginning 5 - 7 hours of Assassin's Creed, majorly suck.

For $350,000 an episode, I'd do worse. If that's... even possible, really.
Anything I want. I don't have debts really, and I'd take care of some family things but that'd only account for a fraction of a percent of $425 million. So in the end, I'd keep my job, maybe move to a different apartment (but only because mine doesn't take pets right now and I really want a dog), and use the winnings slowly over my life to do things that I want to but have never been able to. Perhaps culminating in a few cross-country backpacking trips around Peru, Japan, parts of Europe... idk, hard to say, that's a loooot of money.
Not much for me, really. I got the iPhone 4s last year because it's easy to use, was pretty much the standard for apps and games, and I don't really care about modding my phone or anything like that. I don't feel the need to change or upgrade my phone at all, I think it's great, but there's one big caveat - iOS 6. That OS is hot garbage. At the same time, Samsung is doing some really great stuff with their Galaxy line. So basically, whichever service looks better to me when I feel I no longer need my current phone.
I got Horizon yesterday, and while it definitely seems like a great open world racer with a lot of depth, I'm personally counting on Criterion's touch to make NFS a more fun game. I've always loved Criterion most of all racing developers, though. Then again, I was deliriously sick yesterday too, so I'll probably have to go make sure that the Forza I thought I dabbled in wasn't all some kind of fever dream.
Getting in at the last second here, but here is my profile link:
Not sure if I'll be able to livestream anything, but I just got a N64, SNES and GBA and I'm looking forward to revisiting some of my old favorites. If I can't set up a stream I'll try to update my GB blog some as I go.
Haha, my girlfriend's mom has one of those Audis. It's a sexy looking car but I never quite got it... personally, I'd never drive a car that doesn't have great mileage and safety ratings, so... most cars, I guess. I'm just too practically-minded about all of that stuff to care if people think the Prius or whatever I end up driving is cool (for the record I have no car now but I'll be in the market soon.) Not wasting money on gas or dying in an accident is cooler than your lousy MPG sports car or pickup.
I haven't listened to a ton of music this year and a lot of the new stuff by some of my old favorites doesn't resonate with me as much as the older stuff. I will say that I really enjoyed Prophet by Ramona Falls and Moms by Menomena, but I was going through some shit when both of those came out and now they have very specific connotations for me. Oh, and The Seer Returns is a great song by Swans, but I haven't really listened to the rest of the album.
I feel like I already pay less for games because they put more effort into gameplay than visuals, since most of the games I buy are indie (I get a lot of the AAA stuff from publishers as a perk of my job, but a lot of the indies can't afford to send out to us.) 2012 was the year where the indie scene really came into its own and just stomped all over the AAA market in terms of quality, at least in my opinion. The gameplay is often more simple, but more tuned and polished as well, and that's what I really appreciate.
Also, I can confirm others' comments that publishers should probably just cut back their marketing budgets if they're concerned about diminishing returns. I won't get into what I've received from some publishers, but it can get kind of ridiculous.
