++Good Games ep53: The Arduous task of Picking Games of the Year 2012

So much gaming to do in such little time: Dishonored, RE6, Code of Princess, Retro City Rampage, DoA5, Skylanders: Giants, Assassin’s Creed 3; not to mention earlier releases like Diablo III, Lollipop Chainsaw, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Soul Calibur V, Asura’s Wrath… there are myriad suitors for each category, and frankly, it’s driving us mad!

BL2 and dishonored are really good games

DoublePlusGoodGames1381d ago

This year is absolutely madness in terms of AAA titles. We're definitely going to be hard pressed to pick winners in each category this year.

That said, what an incredible year it is to be a gamer! So many exceptional titles across to many different categories. From FPS to art house titles, 2012 is definitely one for the record books.

this was hard this year. i went with.......

kingdom of amalur - 7/10
ssx - 9/10
armored core 5 - 7/10
mass effect 3 - 9/10
the witcher 2 - 10/10
dragons dogma - 5/10
darksiders 2 - 9/10
dead or alive 5 - 6/10
borderlands 2 - 10/10
xcom - 9/10
transformers foc - 9/10

remaining....
halo 4
wwe 13
far cry 3

waiting for price drops...
sleeping dogs
re6
dishonored

not too bad overall. the only two i regret are doa 5, wish i would have gotten tekken tag instead and dragons dogma. i like supporting new ips but i just couldnt get into it which is odd becuase i love fantasy games more than anything

That's a great list and covers a great deal of the games in 2012 and thanks for sharing!

Personally, I'm really enjoying both DOA 5 and Tekken Tag for different reasons and both Namco and Tecmo have done great job with opening up DLC to users right out of the gate (for free). Borderlands 2 has been a blast and, from the people on our show that have played it, I'm hearing RE6 has been fun as well.

Bottom line, we're still not out of this storm of exceptional game releases (ZOE HD, Okami HD, Halo 4, etc) and our major problem will be finding the time to play all of these games before we record our Game of the Year show.

(I know, I know...first world problems)

Captain Qwark 91381d ago

haha good luck to ya. if i had to pick right now, id prob give it to borderlands 2. after watching that 25 min video of halo 4 just put up though, that could be a tough one to call still

Just listened to the show for my first time and like how you didn't censor out all the swear words (only some). I'll subscribe to your show today. Any podcast service you'd suggest for listening on an iPhone?

DoublePlusGoodGames1381d ago

Thanks for listening! Regarding swear words, if we took the time to edit out all the low-brow stuff, we'd post one show every six months...and we wouldn't have a very good show (IMHO).

As for podcast services on iPhone, you can use Apple's own podcast app (which currently isn't that great), Downcast (which is $1.99 in the iTunes store) or you can download the Stitcher app for free and listen anytime. You can also listen to the show straight from Mevio.com if you don't mind having a browser open the whole time.

Seriously, thanks for listening in, Daystrom. :D

Great cast! Much like the previous commenter said, I like the "real talk." It seems like you guys have tons of fun with this, and it shows!
