What games are you planning to play in 2012? It doesn't need to be 2012 releases though. It's any games you are looking forward to.  
Me, after getting all the Uncharted trilogy, I'm now looking towards: 

  • Catherine (yet unreleased in EU);
  • Loolipop Chainsaw
  • Heavy Rain
  • Darkness II
  • Mass Effect 3
What about you?

Anybody have a list of games to be released in 2012? All I can think of is Fire Emblem: Kakusei and maybe Asura's Wrath.

Diablo III, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, Mass Effect 3, The Last of Us, and MAYBE the new Assassins Creed game if its different enough. Oh and I guess Bioshock Infinite and GTA V.

2012 is a boring year for me. Maybe only Hitman interests me. Oh well, we got Skyrim modding so it's gonna be a good year.

Literally none. 2011 blew up my anticipation radar, it's gonna take a year to finish my 2011 games and move on. 
I was looking forward to Max Payne 3, but playing MP1 and 2 in 14 hours (total) last week made me realize MP3 is impossible to not be a disappointment.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning has caught my eye this week.

The preview videos released a few months ago didn't impress me all that much. I was worried it would be another generic and rather mediocre title, but the rave reviews have definitely intrigued me. It will probably be my next purchase, providing I can complete Skyrim and Dark Souls sometime soon.

This is the year of the Western RPG for me.

Feb - KoA: Reckoning

March - Mass Effect 3

April - Witcher 2

May Dragon's Dagma (it's Western RPGish)

Later 2012 - Monster Hunter on the Vita

Bioshock Infinite

Mass Effect 3 (later - I sealed my fate of having to wait for it yesterday)

Borderlands 2 (well, we'll see if it's more story driven or another MMO "gather 20 bear asses" type)

Resident Evil 6

Prey 2 and Syndicate also look interesting, and The Darkness 2 just plain looks fun.

That new Insomniac game - what was it called?

The Last of Us, if we see a 2012 release.

Splendidly. Still thee best most awe-striking story in a game to date IMO, and the combat is so challenging and fun, I literally took hundreds of videos and screenshots when I beat em back to back last week. 
Well, let me rephrase: They hold up only if you've played them so much in the past to feel at home with the AI behavior and the level design. Otherwise no they're an ancient hellhole.

Right now, I plan on getting Twisted Metal, SSX, Xenoblade Chronicles and Borderlands 2. Maybe on Street Fighter x Tekken.

I'll be spending most of my gaming time this year working on my gaming backlog, got so many older games to wrap up.

Twisted Metal (not long now!), Mass Effect 3, Bioshock Infinite, Torchlight II. Those are the biggies that immediately jump to mind.
 I'd say GTA V, but it's not coming out this year. You know it isn't.
Edit: Oh, and Xenoblade Chronicles. I already pre-ordered it, I'd damn well better be looking forward to it.

The first of my most anticipated came out last week, Darkness II, and it certainly held up to my expectations so I have high hopes for the rest of the year. Can't wait until tomorrow when Twisted Metal and Tales of the Abyss 3DS comes out.

As for the rest of the year:

  • Tales of Graces f
  • Xenoblade Chronicles
  • Devil May Cry HD Collection
  • The Witcher 2 (360)
  • Anarchy Reigns

And a few that may come out this year, but I'll wait until there are some solid release dates for them first.

  • Mass Effect 3
  • Hitman: Absolution
  • XCOM: Enemy Unknown
  • Whatever Tim Schafer's game will be

That's about it. Kingdoms of Amalur was a possibility, but I knew to wait until it was released. After having played the demo and watched reviews, I don't think it's a game that I will be picking up for full price. Maybe during a Steam sale.

Mass Effect 3 I'm generously going to play a friend's copy on his 360, because I refuse to use Origin. Personal preference, doesn't mean everyone has to avoid it.
