2012 worst year in gaming?

#1popping4itPosted 12/25/2012 8:57:24 AM
a year highlighted with underwhelming sequels and that pre-year next gen console launch lull.

heres hoping to see 2013 is much better.

Still hoping for a Shenmue 3.

Agreed. There really wasnt much i cared for this year. Halo 4 was great, Max Payne 3 was great and Double Dragon Neon was amazing.

2013 is starting off phenomenal and looks to keep steam all the way through to April.

Ill be starting off with Anarchy Reigns in a couple weeks!!!!

It seems to have been the year of the greedy publisher :P Quite a few games that I was hyped for were disappointing this year too. But there were quite a few really good games this year, and a few surprises too. Looking forward to seeing what new titles pop up next year, also looking forward to seeing what the Wii U can do and maybe some details on the next gen xbox and playstation consoles.

Thought there were quite a few great games released this year and next year seems like it will be even better. I'm expecting the first year or two of the new consoles to be the worst lull.

Wow, not even close to the worst year in gaming.

One of the worst years of present gen console gaming, with all the gimping and online passes and increased DRM crap all over the place. That is why companies like EA have been bleeding money, not the tiresome " this gen has been going on for too long" excuse.

Publishers don't even understand that they are not entitled to sales just for making something, you have to sell a product to someone. Not assume it is a type of birthright to make a sale.

Yea, it was pretty brutal. Worst in recent history, IMO.

I like sequels as long as it apart of a trilogy or a series. Games that do not deserve a sequel is what was annoying. Like Resident Evil 6. That story was completely pointless.

I thought it was a good year, but I think every year is good.


You're just getting tired of seeing the same things. Nothing this year is really much better than last year and so on. The first few years of a consoles life are the most thrilling, if you will.
