Best Xbox 360 Games of 2012

NZ Gamer - While other platforms may have bucked the trend to a certain extent, the Xbox 360 year was packed full of big-budget game releases. As you can see from this list, many of them scored well, too - none more so than our number one, which was the only title to earn a perfect 10 this year and the first since 2010's Red Dead Redemption - our only other 10/10 review. (Xbox 360)

I own the PC version of The Witcher 2 and I can say it's awesome. Shame it didn't sell though. It deserves more than a few hundred thousand copies sold across two platforms. I hope we get The Witcher 3 but I doubt it with those poor sales.

I own the xbox360 and PC version and I don't know where you got that info from. The witcher 2 has sold at least 1.7 million across xbox360 and PC. Booya!

Hows that for a few hundred thousands copies.

Not great but much more than your false claim. Hows that for poor sales....lol Epic fail dude.

Thing is though it was also pirated a whole hell of alot aswell.

Next game will be epic if 2 is anything to go by.

Witcher 3 is happening CD Project did an amazing job and Witcher 2 was criminally not mentioned on best of list. My favorite RPG fantasy on 360 this year and much better than Skyrim for me

"our only other 10/10 review."
Kinda loses credibility considering the amount of 9's and 9.5's though.

My list:

1. Halo 4
2. The Witcher 2
3. Alan Wake's American Nightmare
4. The Walking Dead (managed to play ep1 at a friends place. Banned here)

The first 3 are exclusive (kinda), as while I played quite a few 360 games, none of them were as amazing IMO as these. Darksider 2 and The Darkness 2 were also quite good.
Another slow year for the 360, but the quality of some of the titles made up for it.

A lot of the great games I played last year (2012) were actually titles I had missed previously. So I did not include them.
