    This one is less risky as only talking this year than retro.

    This thread just made me realise that I don't think I have bought a single game in 2012 that was released this year.

    This is mainly due to shitty job stuff, but I can't think off hand of anything from this year that I've played...

    Ah, I remembered one so far: Ridge Racer Unbounded

    Worst game you paid for: Thai Massage Simulator, far too much talking in it and the ending was just awful.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    I have only purchased Max Payne 3, Forza Horizon and Halo 4 this year so, I guess they go in this order starting with my favourites:

    Forza Horizon
    Halo 4
    Max Payne 3

    ... does anyone know when The Last Story (on the Wii) came out? I think I played that this year and fondly remember thoroughly enjoying the game very much.

    That was this year, I'm a sad bunny that I sold my Wii before I could finish it.
    great game.

    I was actually wondering myself what my own favourites of this year have been the other day, so:

    Best game:
    I think i'm going to have to cheat and say Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. I'd never played them before. Runners up being Borderlands 2 and Halo 4. If I was better at it XCOM would no doubt be here too.

    Best visuals:
    Dishnonored.

    Best sound:
    Borderlands 2.

    Best soundtrack:
    Tough one, probably Halo 4.

    Best gameplay:
    Xcom with Dishonored close behind.

    Best multiplayer:
    Halo 4.

    Best story:
    Probably Journey... though Halo 4's has got me interested in the whole franchise's story.

    Best character:
    Handsome Jack? Claptrap? Tiny Tina? Sir Hammerlock? Scooter? Lilith? Everyone in Borderlands 2?

    Best download title:
    Journey

    Best gaming moment:
    The end of the penultimate part and beginning of the final part of Journey/ Journey as a whole

    Biggest surprise:
    Minecraft. I'd played it previously but couldn't get into it. I always said it was a great game and worthy of all the praise it gets but it's not for me. Then I tried the trial of the 360 version, bought it the next day and have now spent far too many hours playing.

    Worst game you paid money for:
    I'm pretty good with being able to tell when I wont like a game so it's not a game I don't like, just the game I like least out of all the ones I bought this year. Probably Quantum Conundrum... but it is a great game!

    Game you're looking forward to most next year:
    Another tough one, Bioshock Infinite, Metal Gear Rising, GTA V and The Last of Us are all one's I can't wait for. Don't think I could choose between them.

    Overall this year hasn't actually been that great. It's also a shame that Mass Effect 3 didn't fit anywhere.

    I can't remember exactly what came out this year but I'm currently rocking Okami HD and will nominate it for every award.

    Fez
    Halo 4
    The Walking Dead

    With honourable mentions to Borderlands 2, Minecraft 360, DayZ and Spec Ops.

    Only last minute "here comes a new challenger" is potentially Far Cry 3.

    Biggest disappointment is Assassins Creed 3.
