2012 Possibly The Most Exciting Year in Gaming This Generation, Here's Why

"So 2012 is starting up and we already have a pretty awesome list of announced games and hardware, the funny thing is, half of the games set to release this year probably aren't even announced yet and 2012 already looks like the most exciting year for gaming this generation, just with the games announced!

The reason for it is simple actually, unlike the last several years, developers aren't just shoving out sequel, sequel, sequel and doing nothing to really change the experience in that series much, what developers seem to be finally doing now is either make a sequel, or reboot a franchise, but drastically change how it's played, or they're making new IP's, what's exciting about this year is that developers are finally delving into unfamiliar waters more than ever, which is one huge factor among many others that is making this year so exciting.

2012 could possibly be the best year in GAMING PERIOD

Guild Wars 2, Diablo III, DotA 2, CS:GO, Starcraft 2 HOS, WoW Mist of Pandaria, Planetside 2, Arma III, X-Rebirth plus like a ton of other AAA titles.

and this is just the PC side!!

anytime you get 2 Blizzard titles and 2 Valve titles in the same year is a good year!!

Can't wait :D

Its going to be a great year , even if the world does end lol

Least i won't have to pay my student loan off ;)

Really hoping for a teaser to the next Half-Life in 2012, that would just complete the year in terms of gaming imo, its been a long time coming.

You forgot to mention the new X-COM by fireaxis which is bringing the game back to it's series roots.

That game alone is the reason why I'm mostly hyped for 2012!

2012 could be the most exciting year in gaming, well I
think so. 2011 was amazing but this year could beat it.

Here are the games that I'm looking forward to - my list -

Aliens Colonial Marines
Metro Last Light
Bioshock Infinite ( I hope it releases this year )
Hitman Absolution
Borderlands 2
Diablo 3
Far Cry 3

and Valve, please give us a trailer of anything
Half life related.

It's always a good time to be a gamer, but this year
feels especially good.

What are you excited about this year?

Campy da Camper2504d ago

I want the new Hitman so bad I can't stand it.

trenso12505d ago

tomb raider, kh:DDD, gta V the last of us seems like a good year to me

Orpheus2505d ago (Edited 2505d ago )

Metro Last Light, S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2, The Witness .... the ones I am waiting for.

theeg2505d ago (Edited 2505d ago )

kinda want to go into cryostasis till december 2012 and just wake up on the day the steam sale starts, would save even more money that way, aside from a few key titles, i'm not buying too many games day one this year, that's really my resolution.

screw paying $45-$65 for a game, eventually, they'll be $5-10 on steam!

diablo 3, starcraft 2 HotS and guild wars 2 are day one though! Those, I won't be able to wait.
