Alright, now that the year is finally winding down and everyone has had the opportunity (if not necessarily the time or the money) to play all this year's big shooters, besides maybe Far Cry 3, which would you say is the best?

While a lot of gamers were pretty underwhelmed by the games that released this year, I thought the shooter genres did pretty damn well.

My personal favorite would have to be Binary Domain. I loved the arcadey action, the larger than life boss fights, and the party loyalty system that actually alters your ending.

After that I'd probably rank the shooters I've played as TD2 > SO:TL > MP3 > Syndicate. I thought each and every one of them had their merits and each entertained me to a certain extent. Imo, each tried to deviate from the standard shooter framework in their own little ways and they were all better for it.

But that's just what I think, what about the rest of you? What's your personal 2012 shooter of the year? Which shooters did you actually get a chance to play and what did you think about them?

Huh. I actually don't know how to vote on this one.
Do you want to read awesomely rad reviews and articles? No? ****.

Close between The Darkness 2, Spec Ops: The Line, and Max Payne 3. But I choose Max Payne 3

I'm also happy to see that Japan is starting to put out some solid shooters. I think Japanese devs do their best work when they try to do their own thing (e.g. Binary Domain, Vanquish) instead of trying to copy Western devs.

BL2. The others are disappointing or bad.
