Must Buy Video Games in August 2012

Vgamerz writes: "Usually, the month of August is not known as one of the best in the video games world, at least when it comes to new game releases, but this month we have a few very solid titles released on various platforms that could be considered “must buy” games in August 2012." (3DS, Darksiders 2, Madden NFL 13, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Sleeping Dogs, Wii, Xbox 360)

2011 - Deus Ex: Human Revolution
2010 - Mafia 2
2009 - Batman Arkham Asylum
2008 - Tales of Vesperia
2007 - Bioshock
2006 - Saints Row

Since the beginning of this generation, there was at least one worthy game released in August and it some cases it was even made a serious GOTY contender - it was always the month that signaled the end of the dry summer period at retail (usually starting at around E3 every year).

And between Darksiders 2 and Sleeping Dogs - I'm pretty sure that at least one of these will make August 2012 worthwhile as well.
