i'd have switched the order around a bit (max payne not as high) and axed jak and daxter for fez.
mikebrown7905  +   1141d ago
Nice list. Tales from Space is definitely underrated!
BringingTheThunder  +   1141d ago
its better than most vita games out now
admiralvic  +   1141d ago
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?
Relientk77  +   1141d ago
Good list. I would add Tales of Graces f to it
Criminal  +   1141d ago
My pick would have to be Mass Effect 3 or Journey, well both.
LordMe  +   1141d ago
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)?
LordMe  +   1141d ago
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

I would have liked to have seen The Darkness II on the list as well. That was a damn fine game.
Dante112  +   1141d ago
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.
taquito  +   1140d ago
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.
acronkyoung  +   1140d ago
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.
TekoIie  +   1140d ago
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!
YodaCracker  +   1140d ago
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
sarydactl  +   1140d ago
Journey, Fez, Pokemon Conquest, and Pokemon BW2 are my favorites (even tho it's only out in Japan :9 ) .
BootHammer  +   1140d ago
Max Payne 3 was one of my favorites this year.
