My Top 5 Favorite Games of 2012

2012 has finally come to end...well tomorrow anyways. All I can say is this year pretty much sucked, but there were some good games and movies that came out that same year. For the first time, I'll be listing my top 5 favorite games and movies of this year. First I'm going listing the top 5 games I loved this year. I'll be listing them in order of how much I loved the game. Here is my top 5 favorite games of 2012!
5. Max Payne 3
At #5 on my top 5 games is Rockstar's Max Payne 3. I recently played Max Payne's 1 and 2 this year just to be ready for Max Payne 3 and I love all of them. When it comes to Rockstar games they are never seem to get the PC posting right. For example, GTA IV on the PC was just crap and use to be unplayable and as of right now it is playable, but does have some graphic issues and its performance is crap and it was fun to play with mods on there. L.A. Noire had the same problem like the 30 frame cap and the muddy looking facial animations (which was done by facial motion capture.) Took awhile for Rockstar to get it right for L.A.Noire, but failed and released it as it is. Finally, when Max Payne 3 was released on PC after console release the game's performance was perfect. After all that trouble with the previous Rockstar games ported to PC they finally got it right. The gameplay is great, the story was great, and it has its gory moments in the game which are pretty cool. I never found the multiplayer that great, but it's good for when you're bored and don't feel like playing fucking Call of Duty Black Ops 2 or w/e. The game is also hard as hell too, but the game becomes generous and gives you extra pain killers if you die so many times which is helpful in some parts. The cutscenes are cinematic and good, but the whole drug looking effects get annoying as hell. I always think the camera man did acid while catching all the footage lol. Max Payne is fun and has it's badass moments in the game. I would recommend getting this game for either console or PC. Also bald Max Payne is kind of laughable.

4. Dishonored

At #4, we have the first person assassin game Dishonored. I didn't know much about this game until I played it for the first time. I find this game more like a first person Assassin's Creed kind of game. I loved the gameplay, characters, story, and the weapons. I enjoyed killing enemies with all kinds of weapons and doing close attacks with my blade. I played this game for hours just to complete it and enjoyed every minute of it. The thing I really love about the game is when you eliminate your target you have many choices how you want to kill them. Thanks to the quick saving, you can have fun killing your target with every weapon and it does has it's funny moments. I like fucking around with Havelock. That guy is a fucking crack up when you keep killing him for fun. (SPOILER: He's a bad guy anyways.)

3. Borderlands 2
Borderlands 1 was a good RPG first person shooter game, but Borderlands 2 makes the game better than ever. Borderlands 2 has lots of improvements over the first game. They gave this game more story than just a  do this mission, kill bad guys, earn rewards. The gameplay is fun, the graphics are improved, the story is great, has some funny jokes in the game, weapons are sexy, and the characters are awesome. Everything about this game is awesome. I really loved the characters in the game including our old characters like Brick, Roland, Mordecai, Lilith, Dr. Zed, Marcus, and the sexy Mad Moxxi...oh yeah and Claptrap...ugh annoying than ever now. The new characters are cool too, but one of my favorite characters in the game is Handsome Jack. Handsome Jack is like one of my favorite villains in 2012 games. The DLCs are worth playing like Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage. Mr. Torgue is a funny ass mother fucker. "BLOW JOBS!!!"

2. Far Cry 3

Have I ever tell you the definition of Insanity? No? Well, I won't tell you that, but I'll tell you how insane this game is. Far Cry 3 is a major improvement over the 2nd Far Cry, but this game is the best Far Cry game. This game has to be one of my favorite first person shooters of the year. It has a insane story, insane gameplay, pretty much everything about this game is insanely epic. The best thing about the game is that it a is an open world sandbox game. Far Cry 2 was a sandbox game too, but didn't really have much of a story and it was completely a mess. The environment in the game is absolutely beautiful with its amazing graphics it makes you want to fap to it lol. The game also has some fun side missions if you want to spend more time on the game like animal hunting, wanted dead, and side story missions which are not that great, but if you want more EXP. The mini games are fun like the knife throws, shoot outs, and the best version of poker since Red Dead Redemption...seriously the poker game in FC3 is the best mini game.  I don't really like the characters in the game except for the main villain of the game Vaas. I find Vaas more of a villain than Handsome Jack with his creepiness. He's the kind of person who likes to stalk you around and gives you the look on how much he wants to molest you. Sorry Jack, but Vaas has won my Favorite Villain of the Year. I still like ya still Jack. Oh I forgot, the co-op has its own story and introduces 4 characters you get to play as. I haven't completed the co-op yet, but it is fun and it feels a bit linear than open. Again with the multiplayer I haven't bothered with it, but I heard it's a bit boring. One last thing, THANK YOU UBISOFT FOR FINALLY ADDING A FUCKING WINDOWED MODE SUPPORT!

1. Telltale's The Walking Dead Season 1
I love the comic, I love the AMC TV series, and when I played Telltale's The Walking Dead game series I was blown away of how fucking amazing this game was.  I'll be honest, I'm not much into point and click games because they were a bit boring and I always get lost on something and just say "FUCK IT I'M DONE," but when I played this I was totally hooked on to it and started to love it. When playing the Walking Dead, it felt more like an animated movie than a point and click game. Telltales did an amazing job on the story of the game. The characters are amazing as well. This game has some of it's moments like some are funny, badass, and emotional. Once you play this game it will get you hard. I fucking cried at some of the saddest moments including the ending. The amazing thing about the game is that you take control of the story as Lee Everett. You can make Lee careful, become an asshole, or you can make Lee just be silent through out the whole season. You also get some choices to who you want to save or kill and there are some very tough decisions. This is a game where it makes you want to play it over and over again to change up the story a bit. The Walking Dead is my Game of the Year and if you haven't played the Walking Dead yet buy the game now. Get for Steam, Xbox, PS3, or mobile whatever you want to do. You will love this game. Can't wait for a second season. Telltales you are fucking amazing!
Welp, that was my top 5 favorite games of this year. I know i wrote my reviews a bit lazy, but hell these are still great games and if you haven't played them yet, get these games now and play them and I guarantee you will like them. My Top 5 Movies of 2012 will be posted tomorrow.

  1. That was a good top 5. I was really hoping to see The Walking Dead in there, but when i reached 2. place, i got a bit nervous. But then, BAM, first place. I was quite happy to see it, I´d say that`s my GotY as well. Such an amazing game. Was also hoping to see Spec Ops: The Line here as well, but oh well. I mean, the gameplay was just your average third person shooter, but the story...oh god, what a story. Changed how i looked at shooters for good. So if you haven`t tried it, do play it. It`s something one of a kind on the gaming market.
