I follow the NeoGAF Games of the Year 2012 voting cut off date which means 2012 gaming does not end until Saturday, January 19th for me.
I only have one game that I would to wrap up before the polls close and that’s XCOM: Enemy Unknown. I have it and it’s ready to be played but I’ve been distracted by Mechwarrior Online open beta. (I’ll write up my impressions of it later.)
Since I can only select 10 games, I’d like to take this opportunity to point out some notable absentees from my list. These are titles that I chose not to play this year because it’s either coming out on a preferred platform in the future, lack of time or I just didn’t think it was going to make it into the top 10.
- Mark of the Ninja
- FTL: Faster than Light
- Far Cry 3
- Assassin’s Creed III
- Persona 4: Arena
I’m certain I’m missing others but that’s alright. If it is truly notable, I will give it kudos in “2013’s 2012 game of the year”.
