Pixel Related's 2012 GOTY Awards: Best Game No One Played

It might be heartbreaking when a game is bad or disappointing, but it can break your heart even more if no one plays it. If there’s a game you truly believe in, you want everyone to play it. (Asura's Wrath, Lollipop Chainsaw, PC, PS3, Sleeping Dogs, Torchlight II, Wii, Xbox 360, Xenoblade Chronicles)

Xenoblade was amazing! Quite possibly the definitive JRPG of this generation.

I really enjoyed Asuras Wrath but kinda disappointed the true ending is DLC...

Some people are saying Ni No Kuni will be the best JRPG they've played in the while... It's like, didn't Xenoblade and Last Story come out last year?

Sorry No Ni Kuni is hands down something completely new that has never been done before and looks beautiful enchanting you ever step of the way.

Not saying Xenoblade isn't good, I was shocked at how good it was for being on the Wii not trying to be a dick but it looked better than I expected is what I mean.

Still No Ni Kuni is absolutely amazing.

I will have to get that one day but my PS3 is dead and if I remember correctly that's a PS3 exclusive... Gotta agree though Ni No Kuni looks like something very special.

Yeah Sleeping Dogs and Torchlight 2 were seriously snubbed at these awards. Wish Asura's Wrath had none of that DLC crap to get the proper ending. Well, thats Scamcom for ya.

Sleeping Dogs was ok, it has been done before. There was a Matrix: Path of Neo on PC which was pretty awesome for it's time and very similar. There was some other game almost exactly like it also where you played a character just like Sleeping Dogs and practically did all the same stuff.

It's been ages since I played those two games but I think one was on Xbox and Path of Neo was on PC. Sorry I can't remember the name of that one, I just think awards should be handed out to games that are really being creative.

Sleeping Dogs is the best game of that kind but it's still far from fresh ideas and new creativity is all I am saying.

Same with Torchlight.. Tons of games exactly like it.

Hope no offense taken.

None taken. It's just that creativity and originality is dying and that i am looking at execution. It's excellent if they are original and a plus point but these games are brilliantly executed and that's what I am looking at.
I mean torchlight 2 is such a superior game to Diablo III yet because of the latter, it did not succeed as much as I wanted and as much as it should.
