It will be on mine. Would be quite surprised if it didn't get mentioned on the GB stuff. It may just be a factor of coming out earlier in the year and being a low-profile enough game that people are forgetting about it.

A great list. I would personally vouch for the first Project Diva f game, but mostly just because I find its soundtrack SO MUCH better than the second. I'm probably as big a fan of DA:O as you, but I can't agree on what I've played of Inquisition. The world feels so empty and meaningless and the combat is boring, making it hard to get more of the story and characters (which are admittedly quite great). I fully intend to play Senran Kagura after I play the original on 3DS. FFXIV is a pretty damn fine MMO; sadly, WoW still has my heart in that genre and it won't let go.

I think you know my feelings on LR by this point; I'm quite happy to see it at the top of another person's list. Nothing else from this year has even come close to being so good as a complete product--story, combat, characters, music, everything. I CANNOT wait for the PC version so I can play it again. In the meantime, I'll just have to settle for 13 (with some annoyance) and 13-2 (which is nearly as good).

Lightning Returns forever.

I will fight this fight with you.

Shadow of Mordor was fun to play, but the Nemesis system didn't impress me nearly as much as everyone else. Maybe because I rarely died or had chances for it to feel meaningful. Also, it's Lord of the Rings-based, so it already is pretty meh.

Replaying FF13. Want to get all the achievements in the PC version before moving to the (wildly better) sequel. Probably some more Warlords of Draenor to pass the time.

An HD rerelease of the updated Final Fantasy XII release with all the new content would be pretty nice. I know the original version has English voices (and fan patches to fix the rest), but I just want a nice version I can play on my Vita.

@korwin: That would be the part most publishers don't think about until it's too late. As evidenced by countless examples of it happening in the games industry in the last decade.

My idea for the next Farcry game is not to make a next Farcry game for another 5 years or so. Give a franchise a break for a change and let it's absence build both anticipation and genuine radical change. How is it that all of like 3 studios on the planet understand this concept.

Because all of those other studios are owned by publishers with shareholders who want to make money, creativity be damned. I'm not saying it's right or I agree with it, but it's obviously the reason why it keeps happening. Coming up with new ideas that are both profitable and creative is hard. Cranking out another version of a game a lot of people liked is likely going to make a good deal of money AND be easy to build on the engine from the old game. Win-win for those shareholders.

I prefer to play adventure games with a guide, mostly because I don't like dealing with stupid bullshit. The most important part of most (not all, mind you) adventure games is the story, which you still get by just playing through that way.

Really slow lately. It always seems like December is the month when every group releases a bunch of slow, boring, and disinteresting songs that I have a hard time liking. As such, I only really have one thing I enjoyed this week--Dia's Paradise. It's pretty slow-paced as well, but it has a nice rhythm to it and some very pretty vocals that keep it moving a bit moreso than those other songs.
