The 13 Most Noteworthy Games Of 2012

techhive.com: 2012 was a strange year for video games. With the industry in a spiral as the current console cycle winds down, publishers have curbed investments in new ideas and turned to tried-and-true sequels. But that’s not all bad; plenty of great games managed to shine through this year, and the big-budget sequelitis even had the pleasant side effect of clearing the way for some superb smaller developments. Here are my awards for the 13 most noteworthy games of 2012. (Borderlands 2, Fez, Guild Wars 2, Hotline Miami, iPad, iPhone, PC, PS3, Spelunky, Super Hexagon, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Wii U, Xbox 360, ZombiU)
