How 2012 is Shaping Up for Gaming

J.C. Wigriff's rundown on the year in gaming, 2012, thus far. (Culture, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Still have yet to buy a single 2012 game.
The first will most likely be sleeping dogs.

YUP, I've seen enough to warrant a Day 1 purchase from me.

Yea this year has been a bit disapointing but i'm looking forward to October - early 2013.
ha2e48  +   737d ago
Agreed, within that time there are some of the greatest games coming for this gen.

Compare to last year, this year is weak with all the delays. But I will be getting some more games for the PS3 this october. Next year though looks extremely heavy and full of greatness, spring 2013 itself is over running with great games.

You forgot to say " in society " some where within the realms of your message of greatness and prosperity, your losing your touch oh one of awesome wordness...

I bought Mass Effect 3, Max Payne 3, Kinect Star Wars and The Witcher 2 so far this year.

I currently have Black Ops 2, Halo 4, Forza Horizon, AC3 and Madden 13 pre-ordered.

So its been a solid year, but last year was definitely better in my opinion.

I will definitely be buying a Wii U, new hardware always gets me pumped up, so I'll be getting ZombiU, Mario Bro's 2 and Pikmen 3 at the least.

You know, I bought The Witcher 2, and I REALLY wanted to like it... but I just couldn't get into it.

In all fairness, I have heard of this happening to several other people who later went back, played it, and couldn't put it down. Hopefully that will happen to me as well.

The first chapter was boring, I almost stopped playing. After you get into the second chapter, it gets really, really good.

Darksiders II for me.

"COD players are the Nascar fans of gaming"; Well said!

If it wasn't for Skyrim and The Witcher 2 my summer would be pretty dull when it comes to gaming.(I kept those aside since this isn't the first drought I'm going through) The end of the year isn't that bad. The games I'm most excited about are Halo 4, Farcry 3, Assasins Creed 3 and DLC for ME3 and Skyrim.

Thank you.

Man, another Witcher fan. I really need to try it out again, apparently. Everyone keeps saying it gets great after the first chapter. I'll eventually just try to trudge through to the good stuff.

I have never been a big halo fan. By the time I played it, Halo 2 was out, and I was introduced to it through a perpetual "spawn/die" multi-player session at a friend's house. I was never very good, or very fond of, FPS titles, aside from Goldeneye, and some of the other irresistible titles.

I was never really turned on by the Assassin's Creed games as well. I wanted to like them, because everyone else seemed to so much, but the spark just wasn't there.

Oh, and one last thing: Thank for realizing that this was an opinion piece, and offering your own opinions without insult or vitriol. :D
