I haven't completely played through it, but it will probably be Halo 4 for me because I really like Halo. Or maybe Skyrim, although I think that technically came out at the end of 2011.

That's tough for me. This year has been my slowest year ever for gaming. With that being said...

1) The Walking Dead - hands down the best game I played this year. Hopefully will finish this Sunday
2) Trials Revolution? - one of the few games that came out in 2012 that I played a lot
3) ??
4) ??
5) Plague Inc for mobile devices?

I need to search my brain more. I'm about half of the way through Gears 3 but I don't think that qualifies to be on the list.

You should all check out FTL: Faster than Light. It's a game that got all of its funding through kickstarter.com

Here's some info on it
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FTL:_Faster_Than_Light

I think it only cost $10 and doesn't take that much power to run. It's a fun little game.

CNN's list of best games of the year? Thoughts?

I heard the guys over at Tested.com talk about XCOM and Journey a lot.

I've heard good things about all those games, but honestly the only one I've played is Halo 4. I like that Black Ops 2 didn't make the list.

I want someone to get Far Cry 3 and let me borrow it. That game looks awesome. Watched a buddy play it over the weekend.

Werd, it looks cool. I've heard the Mass Effect games are awesome, and the 3rd one is supposed to be really good. I want to play Dishonored too, looks neat.

Though, I barely play the games I have anymore, so I can't really justify buying more.

Played for a day and got bored after beating everything. Some of the challenges were interesting though
