The 50 Games That Defined 2012

Gamasutra: At the end of every year, you can count on Gamasutra for our annual series of retrospective roundup lists. Typically, at this point, we'd recognize the best games by platform -- PC, Xbox 360, Wii, PlayStation 3, etc. etc.

This year we're doing things differently. We've nixed those platform-specific lists in favor of compiling (in alphabetical order) the 50 Games That Defined 2012, starting with the first 10.

This isn't just a list of awesome video games from 2012 (that much shorter list comes later). There will be some not-so-great games listed here as well. There will be some games that didn't release in 2012, but still made a mark on the year regardless. There will even be some games that will never release. (Borderlands 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Dishonored, Guild Wars 2, League of Legends, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

GOOD! Finally someone mentioned League of Legends. However, for some reason, it isnt tagged... ¬¬
I wonder why this game - currently one of the most played online - is almost completely omitted by gaming journalists, while COD fills too many webpages. IMO, that demonstrates that journalism is actually dirty propaganda, so a free-to-play game (that also sustains very well) is not a profitable topic. And of course fanboys are good audience for that.

A comprehensive and useful list. gj

'IMO, that demonstrates that journalism is actually dirty propaganda'

Has it ever been anything other than propaganda? :)
