GR: We did not anticipate so many nominees for Game of the Year in 2012, but this just means that the quality of triple-A games have improved and become more consistently high. Of course, there were plenty of surprises along the way.
Thinking about the path this game took to market, I can't see a single other title more deserving of Most Surprising 2012.
Most Surprising Game 2012 Dear Esther for me..this game more like interactive art and a poetic, beautiful game. Dear Esther is one of the most unique games that has been released in recent years thanks to chinaseroom devs.
This and Binary Domain..
for me its binary domain, a lot of media outlets over looked the game but its great. sleeping fogs is also excellent game
Yup. This game was amazing. I knew it was going to be good, but I enjoyed it much more than any Saint's Row or GTA, except for Vice City. The game was near flawless, it was just a great game in all aspects. Here's hoping for a sequel.
Tokyo Jungle for me. Loved it so much had to buy an avatar.
Binary Domain, you guys.
