So, I'm curious to see the general census around here. And do note, it doesn't have to be a game RELEASED this year...but one you bought this year. Sites like GOG and other places sell older games, so its only fair to include them (if any of you bought from there and enjoyed the games)
And also, this isn't for every game you bought...just your favorites
-What are your favorite game(s) you bought this year?
-Were they for PC, console or a mix of both?
-What genre were they in? (strategy, rpg, mmo...etc...)
-What do you think was the best game company this year?
-If bought digital, what store did you buy from most (steam, amazon, GOG...etc)
I'll answer my own questions
Favorite games bought this year (not in any particular order)
-Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 complete (GOG)
-Europa Universalis III Chronicles (Steam, and this is my overall favorite game I bought this year. Got it for 10 or so dollars, and have played this more than any other game this year. Amazing strategy game)
All for PC, and genres were listed above.
Favorite game company this year is a tough one. But I like what SOE has done with their freemium MMOs, and at the very least, attempted to restore Vanguard. Turbine is great for restoring Asheron's Call 2...but too early to say what they plan to do with it. Can't really think of any other company off the top of my head that isn't a non-mmo company. There is Bethesda, and while they are still doing DLCs for Skyrim...that feels more like they would be better listed in a 2011 census thread, than a 2012 one.
Favorite digital store is probably GOG...I found them earlier this year and have used them quite a bit. Steam would be up there...but they obviously don't check the games before putting them on their store. I used Steam more than GOG...but overall, GOG wins for me.
