I was sure it was going to be Halo 4 but, as amazing as it was,for me personally, single player wise, its all about Far Cry 3 (on pc).

I still haven't tried Journey though.

Ps3 - Hitman: Absolution (I really haven't played many PS3 games this year)

Vita - Uncharted: Golden Abyss - I have AC but yet have to play it; however, U:GA is amazing as it delivers a console-like experience on the go. Perfect! Because AC has been given good reviews, I retain my right to edit this if I prefer AC. Gravity RUsh was close to being first, the repetitive combat let it down for me.

Yer Gravity Rush is a really good game, I could do without all the screaming though, sounds really stupid. The combat did get boring by the end but the story and world they created amazed me.

animegamingnerd  +   1135d ago
witcher 2 was last year
Hydralysk  +   1135d ago
Xbox got it this year for the first time.

Funny that two of the best games I played this year, Witcher 2 EE and Persona 4 Golden, are re-releases.

360 users didn't get a taste of TW2 till April of this year. Though yes, it pretty much is a last year title.

*Edit*: Damnit Hydra! D: lol

Eve Online, I know it's been around 10 years but I just started the beginning of December and I haven't played a game so much in years.
TekoIie  +   1134d ago
Yeh its weirdly addictive! once you make the leap to the PvP aspect with corporations and pirating ect it becomes an amazing game :)
ajax17  +   1134d ago
Mass Effect 3
ironfist92  +   1134d ago
Borderlands 2. Although, I have yet to play Far Cry 3 and Dishonoured
otherZinc  +   1133d ago
Halo 4.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   1133d ago
Agree.

Nothing released this year gives you more content for $60 then Halo 4.

Best Halo game since Halo 1 and with the graphical overhaul 343i gave us, there is no doubt Halo 4 is truly this years GOTY. Why websites chose to do the "hip" and "trendy" route this year and giving it to Indy games is beyond rational.

It's the in thing to nominate Halo 4, just not give it a GOTY.

I love Fez.
medman  +   1133d ago
Mass Effect 3.
ShaunCameron  +   1132d ago
