Game Play writes: "As each year goes by, it feels like the number of good games released over those 12 months just keeps rising. This year was no different. I would argue that it saw a bigger increase than previous years largely because of the influx of quality casual and indie games. I think nearly every gamer missed out on a game they planned to get because they didn't have the time, or saw yet another awesome game and just didn't have the resources to cop it. I was definitely a victim. I'm closing out the year with empty pockets, plenty of great games, and a stupid-long list of games I really wanted to play and didn't."
