This poll is now closed.
A lot of these games went on sale recently, so I'm trying to play through (most of) them. I'd argue several of them are just as good as $60 retail releases . . . if not better.

So which game is your favorite of 2012?

Also, if you choose "other" please list the game. I hate it when great games fly under the radar.

Mark of the Ninja is just fantastic in every way. Great level design, controls, sound, graphics....everything.

Fez doesn't belong on that list of stellar titles.

Spelunky, obviously.
It's better than bad.

Fez was garbage.

Also, it's The Walking Dead, close the topic now :)

I voted for The Walking Dead just for the shear emotion it invoked in me but Trials Evolution is definitely my second favourite and with over 80 hours clocked it is my most played XBLA title, well maybe next to Full House Poker.

Walking Dead for the story... which is one of the best in videogames.

but Mark of the Ninja for gameplay.

i voted Walking Dead.

Hard choice, it's been a great year. Voted Dust due to how pleasant of a surprise it was, although TWD and Journey are about tied with Dust in quality.

I'm sorry to hear about Fez . . . I hope it's not THAT bad. I haven't had a chance to play it yet but I thought it was supposed to be good.

I forgot Trials Evolution so I'm glad someone added that.

Another great downloadable game that came out this year is Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition . . . though I didn't list it because it started as a PSP game and I think it comes with that MGS collection.

Basically you play as Big Boss and you get to create Outer Heaven (i.e. your mercenary base). The gunplay is a lot more arcadey than in previous Metal Gear games, and you get to capture most enemy bosses instead of destroying/killing them.
