Why 2012 Was A Great Year For Gaming

slashgear.com: 2012 was an interesting year in many respects, but it was a particularly interesting year for gaming. 2012 had its share of ups and down, but looking back on the year as a whole, I’d say that it was ultimately good for gamers, developers, and the industry in general. A lot happened throughout the year, and even though we saw vitriol from gamers climb to pretty frightening heights in some cases, there were some pretty cool things happening that you may not have noticed. Needless to say, if 2012 was any indication, then 2013 should be one of gaming’s biggest years yet. (3DS, Assassin's Creed III, Journey, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Sonic And All-Stars Racing Transformed, The Last Story, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xenoblade Chronicles)

and it's the one with GOTY awards from most sites

2012 is nothing compare to what 2013 have in store for us, 2013 will be in my opinion the best year for PS3 from the moment of it's launch back in 2006, w8 & see!

2012 was not a great year for gaming - more a poor year from which a few absolute gems emerged.

Yes same here. This year also felt good because of like me we still had a lot of games that came out during 2011 that we played this year.

2012 was a poor year for gaming. There were fewer gems this year than last year. I suppose that can't be helped as the gen is in wind down mode, but that really doesn't excuse half-assed attempts.

Just the first 5 months of 2013 is better than the entire year of 2012.

Here's the thing, I feel like a lot of people are looking the wrong places. 2012 was a great your for gaming because it was the year of the download. Games like Walking Dead, Journey, Hotline Miami, Fez etc., where all cheaper and more novel than most $60 games tihs year. Then you have free-to-play coming to make most $60 games look foolish. The big publishers were the wrong place to look for what makes 2012 good. If you're looking there, you're looking in the wrong places.
