D+PAD's Games of the Year 2012

D+PAD Writes:

2012 has been a funny old year in the world of videogaming; though the standard of releases was high throughout there was a feeling of uncertainty and impending change hanging over the industry. Most significantly, the console – once seen to be an inevitable and, indeed, unstoppable part of the gaming landscape – has had to face up to the very real threat posed by smart phones and the tablets. Then, of course, there was the ever looming promise of the arrival of the next generation, leaving gamers uncertain as to whether or not this year marked the final hurrah for their beloved consoles or just another year in the ongoing cycle. That the next gen arrived in the form of the Wii U further mixed things up, with Nintendo once again attempting to disrupt the usual evolutionary path of bigger, better, more.

Whatever the impact of these factors, we were still spoilt with a wonder eclectic release schedule, and it’s now time to take stock and pick our favourite releases... (Borderlands 2, iPad, iPhone, Mass Effect 3, Mobile, NintendoLand, PC, PS3, Super Hexagon, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Wii U, Xbox 360)
