All I know its one of the most expensive season I've ever had. My wallet hates me right now... ^^;;

It was a great year but it's still a quite bit aways from being the greatest year.

1. There wasn't a groundbreaking game. The top games that came out this year are all sequels and offer a more refined and upgraded version for that respective game.

2. The timeline of this year makes it difficult for it to be that spectacular. It's almost the end of the generation. The graphics are only marginally getting better and other system limitations are apparent.

Lol, says John Madden

Key word "season" not year.

Skip_Bayless2250d ago (Edited 2250d ago )

Season basically means year in gaming terms since 90% of elite games come out in the fall.

I guess I'm just not as easily pleased or fooled as all of y'all.

A season means a season. Not the whole year

And I agree, nothing remarkably groundbreaking, but to be honest that's my feeling towards the whole gen compared to last gen. That's another "back in my day" story though

Still, a very great Fall/Winter term, but I'm just waiting for my Japanese 2012 games: Last Guardian, Ni No Kuni, and Journey.

Godchild10202250d ago (Edited 2250d ago )

I agree with Alpha. The three games alpha listed plus the Tales of Graces game that is coming to the US, will start and end my 2012 off right.

Every year/season is great if there issomething gaming related to look forward too. I also have the vita and hopefully Kingdom hearts 3Ds comes out next year. My wallet already hurts.

Lol if 90% of elite games came out this fall isn't that more proof that this is the best season in gaming history...

It definitely has at least one AAA games for every genre except fighters.

Jobesy2250d ago

So Mortal Kombat wasn't up to par for you? I think it was the best MK game yet.

TooTall192250d ago

MK was not released in the fall.

Relientk772250d ago (Edited 2250d ago )

There really are alot of great and amazing games being released this Fall. It's hard to really decide what to get if your short on money.

Shok2250d ago

One thing's for sure, this was a beastly-ass year.

DonaldBeck2250d ago

top 3 in history, thanks to uncharted 3 dark souls, skyrim, assassins creed brotherhood, saints row 3rd.
