With the second half of 2012 fully underway, it’s the perfect time to point out the 10 best games from the first half of 2012.

i'd have switched the order around a bit (max payne not as high) and axed jak and daxter for fez.
Nice list. Tales from Space is definitely underrated!
its better than most vita games out now
Tales from space is fun, but there are plenty of better titles for the Vita. Sure it might beat Resistance Burning Skies, but is that really saying much?
Good list. I would add Tales of Graces f to it
My pick would have to be Mass Effect 3 or Journey, well both.
None of my top five are on there... I would say, in no order. The Darkness II Dragon's Dogma Gravity Rush Diablo III Ninja Gaiden III (Yeah, I know, here come the insults.)
Will you be picking up Ninja Gaiden on the Wii U (assuming you buy one)?
I am unsure right now, I will get a Wii U, when I can get the money, trying to get a good guitar right now. I might pick it up for the Wii U, I do think NG3 was missing content, and Razor's Edge seems to be fixing the fans complaints.
you might be the only person who liked ninja gaiden 3
Dragon's Dogma <3
I would have liked to have seen The Darkness II on the list as well. That was a damn fine game.
Ah, Journey and Uncharted: Golden Abyss...good plays. Still have yet to finish Max Payne 3.
Journey is definitely my pick for #1 as well. I just bought Max Payne 3 from a Steam sale. It really looks fantastic. I toyed with the settings, and it can exceed 2 GB of VRAM at just 1080p! I'm glad to see Max Payne return. It has been lots of fun so far.
Good list - and one that's a lot more interesting than 90 per cent of similar pieces floating around. I'd add in Walking Dead too, mind.
Diablo 3 pretty much decimates any other game from 2012 imo tera online was awesome for a month or so, the secret world is pretty damn cool dragons dogma was pretty good but honestly, when it comes to polish, production value, replayability, community and pure online fun, diablo 3 dethrones every other game this year journey does look epic though, have not gotten around to playing it
I think Fez deserves a spot on this list, that and Journey are the only two games that really impressed me this year.
Good picks, but no Walking Dead? I guess since all the episodes aren't out yet it can go on the list for the next half of the year.
Pretty good list. Mass effect 3 was in the right spot IMO but i would have swapped the positions of Max Payne 3 and Trials since i have never played an arcade game so much since Splosion man. Journey defo deserves to be at the top of the list!
Mine would be: Max Payne 3 Fez Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition Mass Effect 3 Trials Evolution The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition Quantum Conundrum Alan Wake's American Nightmare Journey Dragon's Dogma
Journey, Fez, Pokemon Conquest, and Pokemon BW2 are my favorites (even tho it's only out in Japan :9 ) .
Max Payne 3 was one of my favorites this year.
