In keeping with that spirit, we thought we'd look at the games that are headed our way over the next twelve months. The release calendar is packed pretty tight, with high profile titles to suit just about everyone's tastes. Shooters, platformers, RPGs — they're all coming, and they all look amazing. And that's just the stuff we know about. With two new consoles scheduled to hit stores and the very strong possibility that more will be unveiled, this year packs the potential for some momentous shifts in gaming.
In the meantime, though, here are ten of the most anticipated games you'll be able to get your hands on in 2012."
