IF, Black Ops 2 comes out this year, then it will be a contender for the biggest game of 2012. GTA V might be pushed into 2013 but is likely to be the biggest. I think people are tired of so many COD games with the yearly releases. As for The Last of Us I'm not sure how big it will actually be simply because it's a new IP. Probably one of the most anticipated, but not necessarily the biggest.

What about Mass Effect 3? It's out already and has lots of praise.

No love for Resident Evil 6 then?

If they replaced two of your games with those already on the list then you would be asking for love for those games. Can't have a 7 game Top 5 list(actually you could)

EDIT: Props to the xbox site for including a PS3 exclusive. You don't see that too often. Although I think I would have probably left that and GTA V off the list personally. Don't think they'll make it this year.

Yeah, I'm certainly looking forward to RE6, more to the point I'd have had it in place of Assassin's Creed III.

ME3 has got to be a GOTY contender. Other then that, Far Cry 3 and possibly Ghost Recon: Future Soldier could be two of the biggest games this year. I think CoD has reached its peak, and I don't think it will be the same big force its been for the past 5 years, especially if Rockstar releases GTA5 around the same date as Black Ops 2. I would love to see GTA5 mop the floor with Black Ops 2.

Halo 4
"PS3 gamers might scoff, it's a series that has to be respected due to its staying power and huge online following"
"could be that Halo 4 is the best of the series to date"
"What a way for Xbox to go out with a bang."

The Last Of Us
"but can Naughty Dog lavish the same detail and attention it affords to its other exclusive game"
" is not necessarily the post apocalyptic setting which has been done to death in popular culture, but how well the team can produce a game that isn't Uncharted"
"Will The Last of Us be a genre defining title that's more than just looks and drama."

Notice the difference? I suppose I should be happy with an xbox website including a PS3 exclusive at all to be honest.
Seems ol` have slightly higher hopes for Halo 4 :P

Glad to see Bioshock Infinite on the list, but I wonder what it says about me that the games I'm most excited for this year aren't any of the major releases...
