vgZero: '2011 kicked ass. Our ass to be more specific. Most of you are probably still plugging away at just one more quest in Skyrim, just one more Battlefield 3 or Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer match, one more mission in Assassin's Creed: Revelations, or just one more dungeon in Skyward Sword, meanwhile a pile of other games you swear you'll get around to someday soon sit untouched nearby. The good news is that the holiday madness is finally over and you will have some time to play catch-up on all the amazing games 2011 had to offer. The bad news is that the lull won't last long, as 2012 has a remarkably formidable software line-up of its own ready to assault your piggy bank. Okay, maybe that's good news too, in a way. 2012 will see no fewer than two new platforms launching in the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo's Wii U, along with a host of very promising software that already has the year shaping up to give last year a run for its money. We've narrowed down the games expected to be released in 2012 into a countdown of 50 games that we're looking forward to playing the most. Obviously the year still holds many secrets that are yet to be revealed (we have no idea what the Wii U holds in store for its launch), but there is already much to get excited about. Enjoy!'
