Here’s my annual review of the five video games that occupied my time, mind and heart.
1. Sleeping Dogs – I had high expectations for this game, and they were met.
2. Mass Effect 3 – Not quite as brilliant as Mass Effect 2, it still manages a great story with the bonus of having a superb online multiplayer mode.
3. Need For Speed: Most Wanted – I poured 100 hours online and offline into this game within a month of its release. That probably says it all.
4. The Walking Dead: The Game – Emotionally challenging and a superb return to ol’ school 1990s style point and click adventure gaming.
2012 was probably not as strong as the amazing year of 2011, however there was significantly great video games, particularly in the latter half of the year.
