Diablo III has definitely given me more entertainment than any other PC game this year. Guild Wars 2 was the runner-up - I have gotten a lot of fun from it, and it could have challenged for the title if it wasn't released so buggy, and if they had moved the game in a positive direction post-release (like D3 did) instead of a negative one.

It's great game and I say if someone did not play it yet - then it should, but The Witcher 2 was released in 2011 and OP lists 2012 games onlu I think.
Yeah, and as you get older it keep moving faster and faster
The Witcher 2 released in 2011 for PC and then again as Enchanced Edition in 2012 for both PC and Xbox. Maybe that's why
Of course holders of first W2 release could patch to EE for free. Great thing, conisering many other companies would just do paid DLC from it.
@few post up
Dark Souls. Yeah this one also. Hope next Dark Souls game will have much better PC port though.
Had to go with Borderlands 2. I finished my first playthrough over the holiday, and I'm having a hard time walking away and starting any of the other games on my bucket list.
Farmed the Warrior for 2 days, just because I could.
I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil
I'd say planetside 2 - Not because i think It's that amazing, or better then other games
But because it Took risk doing something that others have been incapable or to afraid of doing.
I'd vote firefall instead, but thats not out yet, i don't think beta counts.,
I'd have to go with Dishonored at this point.
Borderlands 2 has really started dragging for me, as TVHM is one of the most tedious and frustrating things I've ever experienced (enemies have way too much HP) and I'm frankly regretting buying the season pass at this point since I've pretty much set the game down out of frustration and disgust.
X-Com, while good, is a game I just can't get motivated to play. I don't know why, but I put about 9 hours into it and haven't picked it up since. I'll probably get into it at some point but right now I don't have enough experience with the game to make it my GOTY.
Dishonored is well polished and fun, with lots to explore and do. Fun powers, fantastic aesthetics, lore-rich and interesting setting, top notch level design, etc. My first playthrough clocked in at 27 hours and I didn't even find / see / do everything which was possible. My only complaint is that you don't get to visit much of Dunwall overall, which sucks because the setting really is very interesting. I'd love to see this setting revisited, perhaps in a more open fashion.
So yeah. Dishonored it is for me. Hands down. Unless Gearbox nerfs enemy HP in BL2 TVHM, then I'll reconsider it.
Edit: For online game, I'm going with Hawken. Fantastic and surprisingly atmospheric mech shooter which IMO blows MWO clean out of the water in terms of proper mech 'feel' (much stompier and more powerful feeling, despite being a good deal smaller). Plus they're using their own IP (so no restrictions) and seem to be doing a hell of a lot more with it (graphic novels, live action film, etc.). Very glad I got my MWO founder's package refunded (although BIG props to Pirahna for refunding it with no real hassle).
Planetside 2 ,even tho theres grazy Dishonored,Botanicula,Mark of the ninja etc,but still when those games are dead im still playing PS 2 ,it seems right now.
COTY (cash shop of the year) : SWTOR ,it shows why subscription model is brilliant.
Tought call. I would go with Xcom on that list.
Path of Exile is about to go into Open Beta, and I think that will be a huge game. But, I guess the official release may be in 2013. No idea how that is counted.
From what ive played so far. Not counting AC3, Hitman, or FC3. Borderlands 2 would get my GOTY
For mmos TSW would egt it.
Playing: War Thunder, World of Warcraft, and Grim DawnWaiting on:Everquest Next and The Black Desert
The Walking Dead (but it's not quite like a game)
Originally posted by jpnz The Walking Dead series was just so emotionally good. Not afraid to say I cried while playing that one. Its like saying 'I cried after playing To the Moon' which is another awesome game but was released Nov/2011. But the one I would pick for my GOTY is ME3.
To The Moon is definitely one of my favorites. I read all the tearjerker warnings on the GoG reviews and didn't believe them. The game lured me in with nostalgia. Its storytelling style reminded me a lot of Breath of Fire 2 and 3. Then right when it had weakened me with the nostalgia it hit me hard with the story. My only complaint is I wish it had lasted twice as long.
I pretty much only play single players from GoG so I haven't tried most on that list. I voted GW2 because it's been great for me, but TL2 is a close second.
