Hotline miami is one of my favourite games of 2012. F'n awesome game. Also the indie uprising is tied into the ressurrection of pc gaming. Lets hope it continues plus kickstarter has been awesome last year for great ideas that couldnt get backing and one of the projects almost got my goty that been FTL

I feel 2011 was the better year, as far as games I bought and kept up with. 2012 had some gems, but 2011 stands out more to me.

Dark Souls came out in 2011, so 2011 no contest.

Any other game just falls short of dark souls.
