What games are you still excited for this year?

1 min read


2012 has proven itself to be a pretty damned good year for videogames. We’ve concluded Shepard’s story with Mass Effect 3, scoured the desert with Journey, clicked demons to death with Diablo, looted EVERYTHING in Borderlands 2, Kombatted Mortals, kung-fu kicked Sleeping Dogs in the face – and so much more. Thing is, with just two months left of the year, we as gamers are still in for a barrage of great games.


Assassin’s Creed 3 launches later this week, as does Need for Speed: Most Wanted. We’ve still got great shooters like Halo 4 and Black Ops 2 coming our way.

WWE 13 wants to hit your wallet with a chair, Hitman: Absolution wants to assassinate your bank balance and Far Cry 3 intends to wear your disposable income as a hat. One does not just LEGO to Mordor, but there’s a blockified Lord of the Rings game coming, along with Skylanders Giants.

And of course, OF COURSE! there’s the imminent release of the Wii U, and its delicious exclusives like ZombiU and New Super Mario Bros Wii U.

Which ones tickle your fancy?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
