Game of the Year 2012 Day 1 of 3

game-of-the-year-2012-logoI didn’t play many 2012 releases until the waning months of the year. It wasn’t due to the lack of time; it was because I felt the “good stuff” didn’t drop until then. Mass Effect 3 was the only major release that I chose to pick up early on. I let many titles go by but even with that in mind, I somehow managed to play enough (or see enough) 2012 games to assemble a Game of the Year feature.

The 2012 Game I Wish I Bought & Played in 2012

Winner: Fez

I didn’t just want to play Fez in 2012; I wanted to experience Fez during its release window. There was something more to this 8-bit styled platformer and for a while its unraveling dominated my Twitter feed, podcasts and forums. Online centric games always warrant a day one purchase but it’s rare to see a single player game kick up so much¬†fervour from the gaming community.

Runner-ups: Mark of the Ninja, Dead or Alive 5
