The games of 2012

Not much left of 2012! Who knew we would get here, seeing as the world ended seven days ago. Hahaha, mmm! Yeah! Well, for me 2012 has been a year of disappointing games. Or rather perhaps not disappointing games, but rather lack of games that has made me really excited. And of course this list is only for game that came out this year in America or Europe, I’ve played a few older games this year too. But I won’t list them here. If you want too see them, check out my ”Games I’ve beaten” section. Oh, and I will only be posting two games in each categories. Mostly since there haven’t been so many good games for me this year.

THE GOOD/SURPRISES

Tales of Graces f

A game I waited a long time for and probably is my favorite game of the whole year, it didn’t disappoint me the slightest. I am even on my second round of the game right now and I’m a person who rarely replays RPGs, so for me that’s saying a whole lot of how much I like the game. And its even more fun now, since I understand its system much more now than the first playthrough.

Lollipop Chainsaw

Hilarious, Sexy, Funny, Humor, Movie references, Great Soundtrack, Zombies, Cheerleaders, Black Magic, Badass, Music styles, Parodies, Juliet, Lollipops, Pervy I could probably think of more fitting ”tags” to post about this game. I really, really enjoyed it. Play it if you get the chance and like these kinds of games.

 

THE BAD/DISAPPOINTMENTS

Darksiders II

The sequel to one of the best games I played 2010, so of course I was hyped. But boy, did I get slapped in the face. Death as a character is cool and I love his voice, so awesome and really fitting. But the world is boring, large and filled with empty space. The bosses in the game had no charm what so ever, at least in Darksiders 1 they had dialogue and felt like characters. In DS2 they just feel like bigger tougher monsters, that are in no way special. I think there are two-three exceptions. I do like the loot system and the ability to change costume, but those are a few pluses short. No, sir. This is a big disappointment for me.

Gravity Rush

People are probably going to dislike me for this… It was not a bad game, it was just disappointing. Since everyone was hyping this to be some damn super great game. I enjoyed it somewhat, and Cat was an okay character. I’d like to see more of here, but I can’t say I enjoyed the came all that much. Sadly. =/

All in all, I have finished 19 games through this year. And it seems like there won’t be much time left to finish anything else. And why hurry? I’ll take my time and enjoy my games in my own pace. Happy new year everyone. Take care and let’s hope 2013 will be a kickass year, for games!

  1. I bought Gravity Rush like 2 weeks ago, but I haven’t had the time to play more than the very first 15 minutes or so. And of course, it’s very different, but I can’t decide whether that’s good or bad right now. I got it recommended to me through a friend at Twitter, and that’s also everything I’ve heard about it. It totally escaped my radar. However, I look forward to have more time to game next year. At least I hope that’s what I’ve have. :)

  2. @ Lania:
    I think I would have enjoyed it much much more, if I hadn’t listen so much to people. I really just got the meh feeling from the game. Sure it was fun and such, but nowhere as near as good as some people seems to think it is. I guess I fell into the hype again and I tend to get disappointed.
    I hope you can enjoy it more. =)
