My Gaming Overview of 2012!posted

Hello everybody, like every year. I come here to share my gaming year with everybody interested enough to read this.
For the people who remember me, awesome, I love you . For the people who don't after 365 days (who blaims them?) I am a 18 year old Dutch student. I study IT at University here. And I often go by the name of Sir Burning in most of my games, and Infinity over here.
This year has been quite interesting. I've burned out of Battlefield 3 and all the bull**** DICE brings to it.It's funny how much can change in 1 year. People come and go, opinions shift.
This year I've for once not despised the new call of duty. And I've been surprised more than a few occasions with games that came out of nowhere.
Without further ado, Lets begin with the list:
Best FPS: Planetside 2
This is the most revolutionary FPS i've played in a long time. It's amazing in every aspect and everything Battlefield 3 should have been. And on top of that, It is also free to play. So no reason to not check it out. Game can be found on either Steam or planetside2.com
Best RTS: still Company of Heroes.
I haven't played much new RTS this year. But one worth mentioning is Commander & Conquer 4. I hated this game for the direction they took. But after some time. I've found this to be quite enjoyable for once in a while.
Best RPG: Mass Effect 3
Despite the not so well recieved ending. This was a quality game. It came very close to Mass Effect 2. Now some people argue that after Mass Effect 1 , all the others are not really RPG. I can see why people whould say that. My second pick whould be the witcher 2. It's a very nice RTS, PC style. Hard, Unforgiving. But eventually rewarding
Best Race: Need for Speed Most Wanted
Even though I haven't played much racing games. This game brought the Need for Speed series back to what they should be. A fine step in the right direction if you ask me. Worthy of Best racing game of the year.
Most Unexpected: Farcry 3
For me, this is THE game of the year. I am not sure what category to list this under. It's a sandbox FPS with RPG elements. Ubisoft really nailed it with this one. The game is a finished product. With very little bugs. A good story, all the modes are probably finished. Amazing game overall. And I haven't even seen it coming.
Biggest Disappointment: Medal of Honor Warfighter
Now, this one is a bit akward. The game itself isnt terrible. But how the critic's recieved it, it absolutely demolished the game. It died in a week. Like Medal of Honor 2010.
Overall, a good year once more. THQ went bankrupt which i find sad to see. I truely hope some smaller publishers can keep their head above water. for the sake of all of us.
This has been my overview of this year. I might forgot about some games completely. But these stuck to my mind the best. How about you, what is your list? Do you agree? Or completely disagree with what I said? I'd love to hear it from you in the comments.
Maybe 1 day later than usually. But
HAPPY NEWYEAR CHEAPHAPPENS.
That you may Prosper as much in 2013 as you have done in 2012!
