Games of 2012 that I have played (so far)

This list is an ongoing log of all the games that I've played so far in 2012, and a little bit of info on how much I enjoyed them. It's in no particular order.

List items

  • Eh... I got it because it was one of the few games I was interested in for the Vita. I can't say it's all that great, to be honest. It's decent for a handheld, but it naturally draws comparisons to Uncharted 2 and 3, and compared to those games it feels kind of like a slightly better Uncharted 1. Not bad for a handheld game, but be warned - it ain't no PS3 uncharted.

  • It's Lumines. It's alright. Again, got it because, what else was there for the Vita?

  • Pretty funny for a while, but it does get boring. Still, not bad for a downloadable title.

  • A singleplayer MMO experience. It's got content, it's got decent mechanics but it is utterly, utterly, UTTERLY soulless. I cared about NONE of the characters, world or plot. I'll concede that it is a very interesting world that they've crafted, but after 10 hours of playing, I was just on autopilot for the rest of the game. It's not bad - but it really does feel like a single-player MMO.

  • While not as good as ME2, it was stunningly brilliant for 85% of its length. But the last 30 minutes really did hurt it. I'm not one of those "change the ending" types, but the ending, in my opinion, really did suck. Still, everything BEFORE the ending was pretty damn awesome, and I haven't forgotten that. And the multiplayer still has me playing it, so it must have done something right

  • Kind of boring, to be honest. Uncharted is a better shooter. The AI in the game is messed up as well.

  • Great game, but only if you don't mind difficult puzzles and backtracking. This is a game that requires patience, and a lot of time. Don't play it if you don't have either of those two.

  • I don't want to spoil it. Absolutely beautiful. Stunning. Marvelous. Worth the price. And I will buy anything the creators of this game put out in the future.

  • It's Prototype 1 with a black guy as the hero. While he is more interesting than Mercer, the game is.... well.... I mean, it's Prototype 1 with a black guy as the hero instead of a white guy. That is all you need to know about this game. Did you really like Prototype 1? This game is like that almost exactly.

  • Addictive. Fun. But I doubt I'll play it past 2012.

  • Great singleplayer experience, but the multiplayer is only decent. Really enjoyed Max's journey. Not quite sure if it was worth the price I paid, but it runs really well on the PC, which is a pleasant surprise. Fans of MP1 and MP2 won't really like this game, but I never liked the original Max Payne games, so I enjoyed this one immensely. The mechanics are as solid as a rock for the most part.

  • A nifty expansion - worth the price considering how much stuff they added to it. Still won't please the die-hard Civ IV fans, but for those who like Civ 5, this expansion is worth getting. Spies, Religion, reworked tech-tree, combat mechanics, naval mechanics, new civs, new units, new resources.... it's worth the price, if you like Civ. And if you don't, well, don't buy it!

  • Got this for cheap on the Steam Sale..... it's alright. I'm not a fan of platformers, however, regardless of how good they are. It controls well, looks great for a relatively small game and it's probably worth the price I paid for it.

  • Great game, but not easy to get into. It's also free to play, so there's that. Unlike a lot of F2P games, this isn't "pay-to-win". The starting classes are perfectly useful and they rotate classes. The paid stuff is mostly cosmetic, and it's ludicrously overpriced, so don't bother, unless you really care what your digital dude looks like in his digital world.

  • Aptly named game. Even though it came out in 2006, it still works, mostly because I haven't seen anything like it. While there is a certain amount of strategy involved, this is no Starcraft II. It mostly serves as a grim yet fascinating view of how a global nuclear war would look from the view point of a command centre. Surprisingly emotional, when you stop to think about what the flickering lights and dots actually represent.

  • Better than GTAIV, that's for sure. Game of the year for 2011? No - Skyrim was better. A lot of the humour of Saint's Row just... falls completely flat for me. Its attempts at satire are extremely clumsy. But the gameplay is better than GTAIV's, the game runs smooth as hell on the PC and there's quite a bit of content. It is undeniably misogynistic in parts, and that's not good.

  • This game came with my 3DS. I suppose if you like this sort of game, it's fine. I, however, do not. The controls also seem fiddly. If you try to use the motion sensor to control the ball, you have to turn the 3D off, and the control stick isn't good enough to control the ball with the amount of accuracy I like. It's alright, but I certainly won't be beating this game anytime soon.

  • Pretty fun. The levels are just the right length and they can get somewhat challenging towards the end of the game. I have issue with some of the movements that Mario can make and I dislike how Mario can go "off-screen" when jumping, but overall it's good. The 3D stuff really is just a gimmick, though.

  • A highly addictive game, really liked the humour and it is one of my favorite games of the year. Very well done, Gearbox, very well done.

  • Did not enjoy this. But it cost only 8 dollars, so it doesn't matter.

  • Absolutely fantastic. Never played the original. Was glad that I brought this.

  • Decent. I still think Diablo III has better mechanics and gameplay, but TL2 is decent enough. Cheap, too.

  • Weird, Brutal, Tension-filled and exciting. Not quite sure what the plot tried to convey, but the gameplay is pretty good. Not one, however, to play when one's parents are around. Quite good, really.

  • Got this because someone else got it for me as a gift. I was surprised at how much effort Treyarch put into this game. They really, really tried to make a more compelling single player campaign. It doesn't entirely work, but the effort is appreciated, and if they continue down this same path, CoD has a bright future ahead of it. The Multiplayer is a LOT better than MW3s - which was almost broken in my opinion. Overall, a solid effort, but if you don't like CoD (and that's fine), this game probably won't change your opinion of CoD

  • Got this for the co-op. Not as good as Halo 3. Not as bad as I thought it would be, but it feels a bit.... lacking. The story made next to no sense to me, since I only played Halo 1 and 3 and never bothered with any of the expanded universe nonsense. In terms of gameplay, it's fine. Challenging only if you turn it up to Heroic though. 343 made some noise about adjusting the difficulty so that Normal was really Normal, but no - Normal for Halo games is the Easy Mode in Halo 4.

    It's alright. Ends anticlimatically. Doesn't last all that long, if you play it on normal. Does little new, but gets the basics down pat. It's a Halo game. Just not as good as Halo 3.

  • It is everything I liked about Far Cry 2 minus everything I hated about Far Cry 2. It is a very good game, and I am very glad that I played it. The story might be slightly-racist, white-man-saving-the-savages empowerment fantasy dreck, but I appreciate that they tried, and the writing is fairly good too. But the important thing is that it plays very, very well.

  • Known as Pullblox in Aussieland, this game gets very hard very fast. Entertaining, with good controls and a ton of content for only 9 dollars, this game is worth it.

  • Again, different name here in Aussieland - Fallblox, which is much crappier than Crashmo. This game is even harder than Pushmo. Puzzle fanatics only.

  • This is the best game I have ever played, even if its not a real video game. It's simply the best.

    It is nice knowing that.... I can still be affected by things like this. Its good to know that I am not so cynical, not so hard-shelled after all. That there is still a heart within me and that it can still feel things.

  • Really great. Combat system has been simplified - and Chie's new voice is really annoying, but other than that, it's the great Persona 4 you know and love.

  • Just started playing this on the instance of my Brother. At first it seems really boring - but stick with it and find a character you're good with and the game becomes a lot more fun, when you play it with people you know.

  • Doubt I'll finish this in 2012, but I started it on the 29th of December, so it counts. A good game, by what I've played so far. I like the world design and the mechanics. The graphics are somewhat off-putting. I know they're trying to go for a stylized appearance, but it just looks....bland in many places.
