20 Most Jaw-Dropping Games of 2012

WC writes: Contrary to Metacritic’s by-the-numbers assertions, 2012 was a hell of a year for video-games Each quarter had a slew of high-quality AAA releases that kept gamers entertained for hours on end. We probably didn’t even have time for all of them since indie developers brought their A-game as well. The number of fantastic titles released across a variety of genres is mind-boggling. Seriously, not one, but TWO of the games that have been earning Game of the Year awards from various publications are isometric (and aren’t RTS games)! When was the last time that happened? And let’s not forget the popularity of the dungeon crawler Legend of Grimrock or, better yet, Telltale’s point-and-click adventure adaptation of The Walking Dead.

Let’s talk about the ones that blew us away; here are the most jaw-dropping games of 2012, listed in no particular order. (Far Cry 3, Journey, Papo & Yo, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Sleeping Dogs, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Xbox 360)
