All right, Dec has hit. What is everyone thinking is the best game of 2012?
So far, my gong goes to: Dishonored
The way you can combine ideas and they interact still impresses me. Haven't had to think this much in ages. A game that effectively awards you style points.
I think it really won me over when I discovered that you could possess a fish, swim through an under water grate that connects to the sewer and come up though the drain in the shower as a way to break into a building. I mean really?! You even get a trophy! The graphics let it down a little, but this is covered to a large extent by the fantastic art design.
Some notable mentions go to :
Sleeping Dogs - I have not laughed so much playing a game for a long time. Is that wrong?
Assassins Creed 3 - I'm just a huge fan of the series and really enjoyed this one.
Max Payne 3 - A beautiful and brutal beast, that took one idea and made you embrace it to the end.
Mass Effect 3 - Oh what could have been.
And yet... I have this funny feeling that when I play Far Cry 3, it is going to surpass them all...
So what's your fav?
