Twas quite a year. But in a way, it's good to have these issues. It means the industry is maturing.

the industry may be maturing. but it's also on a merry-go-round. sex and violence come up every year.

A heightened sense of popularity doesn't necessarily equal maturing.
I personally think a better graph in gauging maturity (in the way you mean it) is the community's responses TO those issues, rather than the issues themselves.

-Given the insensitive remarks/blogs directed towards anyone questioning any form of sexism in games, I see a group of the community unwilling to have this discussion and prey on said complainers' possible physical traits, social status, etc.

-Yellow (gaming) journalism has reached new heights in an industry seemingly craving for it.

The games may be maturing, but it's tough for me to believe the culture is. Since most topics are regurgitated and fail to bring any new enlightened angles on the controversies, it seems like most are content with sticking in limbo.

Edit: I'm sorry my points are distanced from what's discussed in the article.

I agree. It shows that people care about the games the play.

Edit: I know that doesn't have much to do with the article btw, but I thought it was controversial!

Ohhh that makes more sense. Yeah I wish there had been a two ways that could've played out. Oh well, it's still an amazing game!!

Deffo, mate! Hands down my top game this year... Just hoping for a sequel!

And yeah, I wish there were a little more consequences to your decisions... A couple extra parts. I tried to save the guy instead of Duck hoping for an entirely different path, for example! Outstanding game regardless!

Why isn't the MikeCosgrove vs Assassin's Creed 3 debacle on the list?
