Five Games From 2012 (So Far) That You May Have Passed On But Totally Shouldn't

GR: As the fall draws near, the ever approaching torrent of games will undoubtedly keep our thumbs busy well through the rest of 2012. But seeing as how there's still a slight lull before the storm (I say slight because we were just graced with both Sleeping Dogs and Darksiders II) there's no better time to catch up on some of the great games that released earlier this year you may have missed out on.

That's where we here at GameRevolution come in. The first half of 2012 was loaded with fantastic games. So many in fact, that a handful were bound to get overlooked. To keep you busy right up until the holiday rush, we've compiled a list of five stellar titles that quite possibly flew under your radar.

All of these were great and should totally be played.

I agree but my issue isn't finding games, it's finding time. This is the first time I have ever stopped pre ordering or buying at launch. Skyrim, KoA, the wither 2, ME3 and Dragons Dogma have taken up all of 10 months. I love DD. I haunt finished Batman or KoA, and I would love to play Max Payne and darksiders. And journey and a few other downloadable look awesome.

I really, really need to play The Walking Dead episodes, I've only heard about how they're awesome-awesome and I just haven't... bought 'em. >_<

insertcoin1938d ago

I concur. I missed out on The Walking Dead... so many things to play now.

alexcosborn1938d ago

You'll want to make this a priority. Believe me, it's really THAT GOOD.

Bimkoblerutso1938d ago

^Seriously, one of the best narratives the industry has to offer.

Also I gotta say, very good list. All those other games are excellent as well, especially Amalur. It's a real shame about that whole fiasco.

da_2pacalypse1937d ago

I have intentionally not played them because I'd rather wait until they've all come out so I can play them all at once. Waiting for the next games leads to the forgetting of small details from previous installments, thus I'm going to get them all at once :D I can't wait :)

PlayStation Plus is free now???!!!

legionsoup1937d ago

No - if you have Playstation Plus, Walking Dead episodes 1 and 2 are free.

Moby-Royale1938d ago

The walking dead scratches an itch I didn't know I had. It's a thrill.

It's only $4.99 per episode.

I play an episide in the evening and afterwards I feel like playing nothing afterwards. It's emotional draining, in a good way.

Take the plunge!

They're awesome alright, i can't wait for the third one.

It is funny how i have Passed On all this games.

alexcosborn1937d ago

Not funny. Sad. Terribly sad. You should give them a look. Especially Amalur.

DialgaMarine1938d ago

You should throw Starhawk onto that list. That game is absolutely fantastic, and alot of people seem to have passed it up.

Heads up: in the current issue of @Gamer, there is a coupon for $30 off on Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning. I think it's only good for another week or two. The current price at Best Buy is $39.99, meaning you can get the game for $9.99 + the $5 cost of the magazine... or if you are the nefarious type... you can try and snag the coupon from the magazine. Not encouraging it... but you know.

It is the issue with Medal Of Honor on it. I got it at launch and actually went to the launch event and met Curt Schilling and RA Salvatore and a ton of other 38 Studios people, but I plan on buying it again for PS3. Awesome game.

spektical1938d ago

is it like dark/demon souls?

shammgod1938d ago

No. Nothing even close to the souls games. Amalur is much fun in its on right, but if you expect or compare it to the souls games you will be very disappointed.

spektical1938d ago (Edited 1938d ago )

i see.. thanks for the heads up. i was about to buy it, but now I'll reconsider it.

thanks for reply though!

aPerson1935d ago

Watch a gameplay video. It's a fantastic game. Don't pass on it just because the gameplay is different from Dark Souls...
