With everyone making "Best of 2012" lists, it would be a shame to miss this wank opportunity on Guru. Clearly this is GUILD WARS 2 Guru so I expect a certain game to pop up a LOT, but it would still be nice to hear what other games next to THAT one you enjoyed this year.

Here's a tip: It's not Guild Wars 2.


Endless Space. Is way better and its developers are alright. Unlike ArenaNet.

I haven't played a lot of new games this year, so it would be fairly hard to make up a list.
But if I had to pick one, I'd say Kid Icarus for 3DS. Pretty short game, sure, but the story-mode was tons of fun, the dialogue made me laugh out loud too many times. :D
And has one of the best "endings" I've seen in a game.

1. Guild Wars 2 because of guildies

2. Diablo 3 because I prefer its PvE to GW2

3. NHL 13 because of lockout....

Spec Ops: The Line1 . Lead writer Walt Williams has stated that there are many influences to the story, but the premise is inspired by Joseph Conrad's  Heart of Darkness2.

1. Far Cry 3 by far.

2. Planetside 2
3. Dishonored
4. Borderlands 2
5. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

The rest didn't make much of an impression on me, including GW2.

EDIT: I noticed all my best games are FPS. Interesting.

I played Spec Ops: The Line for a total of six hours, and I hate it myself. It gets my vote for favorite of the year.

Dishonored is also an excellent game, but I haven't played much, and I'm kinda bad at it, for whatever reason.

I got the most playtime I think out of Tribes this year...(bout 6 or 7 months?)
Really had fun with it until they nerfed Sniping & Chasing like 5 times in a row...


Didn't have as much fun with GW2 when it came to long term goals though ... I loved almost every minute of playing my Guardian ... but the Dungeons were gimmicky, Crafting was Rote & Shallow, and WvWvW.... DubVee was just a half baked minigame that had great combat & TTK design, but not one single thought given towards making itself self-sustaining and addicting.  Everything about it seemed intentionally punishing towards anyone who wanted to take pride in being a non-exploiting individual

Dishonored and Darksiders 2 were really great.

No much games made me go WOW this year.. But I still have way too many games to play anyways to care much anymore.. Damn sales.

dragon dogma LOVE that game.
guild wars 2.

Considering I don't remember any game I bought other than mass effect 3 (which i wont put on my list) thats all. I bought a lot of games that I probably wont ever play for my vita and 3dsxl.

Looking forwards to future installments of dragon dogma, hopefully in an iteration or 2, it will be better overall than that shitty skyrim game. Seriously, the combat in DD was to die for, my GOTY.
