Best games of 2012?

For me there's only been two titles that I found to be not just good, but truly great.

 

- Legend of Grimrock, an old-school type dungeon crawler game with modern graphics.

- XCOM: Enemy Unknown, a reimagining of the classic strategy and tactics UFO: Enemy Unknown / XCOM: UFO Defense.

 

What games came out this year and managed to truly tickle you guys' nerdhood?

    gw2 is terrible, but AC3 is good.

     

    For me Xcom would have to make that list, not sure where i'd go beyond that, been underwhelmed with games this year.

    For me GW2. Haven't had a game hold my attention like this since swg, which is funny because it's a theme park game. But it's just a little bit more exciting and fast paced combat wise to play then most MMOs I've played over the last few years, so I like it. I do however see current content becoming stale at some point for me, which is why I hope they stay on track with adding new content each month.

    To each their own but I think GW2 is great.

    TSW, ultimate No.1 of the year, biggest positive surprise in a long time.

    Everything else was a disappointment.. well, except XCOM.

    Oh and Firefall looks like it will be a great 2013 game.

    Farcry 3 (good to have a friend in euro to send a copy :D) is thus far great. I find it more fun than vanilla Skyrim (not as much as my modded version) back when it first came out. If it is mod compatible, and someone makes a hardcore survival mod (to make it more like STALKER)...easily GOTY for me. Still tons of fun though. Played about 6 hours of it thus far. 

     

    However, the story and voice acting in Farcry 3 are amazing. Great characters too. And there is no malaria to ruin the whole game.

    Halo 4(XBOX 360), Assasin Creed 3(PS3), Guild Wars 2(PC), and Madden on my Vita though it is the only game I got( got the bundle for 150 from a friend). I'll also throw in Bastion and Angry Birds Star Wars edition on my Iphone 4s, it was a tie pretty much.

     

    Borderlands 2 for my ps3 was really good, NBA 2K13 for xobx 360 I digg it as well, an TSW, also for it to be a sub game I'd recommend it, just like GW2, TSW is different from the norm, how ever sometimes different isn't always better, for me [gameplay] wise it's really good and different from the norm, and another contender for PC games is Planet Side 2 for me.

     

    I plan on trying out XCOM sometime this year, I got the demo downloaded on my PS3, but I have yet been able to try it out. 

     

    Edited: Oh and saw Souldrainer's post, wondering if Dishonored is good, previews look nice, I might try it on Xbox 360.

    I might get banned for this. - Rizel Star.

    I'm not afraid to tell trolls what they [need] to hear, even if that means for me to have an forced absence afterwards.

    P2P LOGIC = If it's P2P it means longevity, overall better game, and THE BEST SUPPORT EVER!!!!!(Which has been rinsed and repeated about a thousand times)

    Common Sense Logic = P2P logic is no better than F2P Logic.

    Borderlands 2 - GOTY

    Had fun with a few others, such as TOR, D3 and T2, but so far everything has paled in comparison to B2. If I can pry myself away from it anytime soon, I'll get started on Assassin's Creed 3 and Arkham City. Both look to be near the top of my 2012 list.

    I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil
