I'm going with yes. Many of my favourite franchises have been tarnished due to being released this year. Must be some kind of a curse floating around

One of, if not the worst years in gaming since the Ps3 1st launched... I couldn't believe the total lack of quality games -- let alone the total lack of games in general. Sony completely gave up this year and it shows with their weak offerings.

We are at the 6 year mark... Games should be dazzling us with spectacular graphics and gameplay -- Yet we're getting D grade games like Little Big Planet karting, Playstation and stars battle royal, games made to run on the vita -- What were they thinking?

I've never been more disappointed in owning the PS3 than I have been this year. Sleeping Dogs and Max Payne were the only 2 games I bought -- multiplatform games. Not good. Not good at all.

I voted "No" because Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward saved the year.

Nope, it's been great actually.

I'll just copy this from another post I answered awhile back lol

It was great for me

- Final Fantasy 13-2 really started the year off for me, and was one of the few games I made SURE to 100%

- Next came Resident Evil Revelations which gave me even more of a reason to have a 3DS

- Tales of Graces f FINALLY came out after waiting quite a few years!

- Kid Icarus Uprising is easily one of the best Nintendo games to be released in years.

- Xenoblade Chronicles was just... Wow. Never thought I'd see something that amazing/huge on the Wii lol

- Ninja Gaiden 3 came out and trolled every fan, although I thought it was ok for what it was... (Besides they made it better, but I'll cover that soon later down the list.)

- Mario Tennis Open was a nice little 3DS game to own.

- Gravity Rush came out on the Vita, and, wow. Great game! 100%ed it also lol

- Uncharted Golden Abyss was really good as well (although not as great as the Naughty Dog released games....)

- MOTORSTORM RC was a nice free racing game.

- TOM Blitz is STILL addicting

- Dynasty Warriors: Next is easily one of the best DW games I've played in a long time.

- Kingdom Hearts DDD finally hit the shelves, and I ended up loving it! Been waiting for the first "true" sequel to KH2 since, well, KH2 lol

- BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend greatly improved BlazBlue CS

- The Last Story was truly a unique Wii game, and I loved every second of it. I had also been waiting for that game since the day it was teased in Japan lol

- Theatrhythm Final Fantasy was a pretty fun 3DS music game

- Dead or Alive 5 is easily the BEST DoA game ever created, and it is now one of my top favorite fighting games.

- Pokemon Black/White 2 was a nice expansion to the originals, and I did like the new features.

- Assassin's Creed 3! Been waiting for this game since AC2 ended (although I did like Brotherhood, I didn't care for Revelations and had been waiting for a new main character ever since.)

- Zone of the Enders HD is an amazing HD collection.

Also, although I don't own them, a few other games worth bringing up would be Halo 4, Mass Effect 3, the Ratchet and Clank collection, Shinobido 2, New Little Kings Story, and a few others.

ALSO

- The Wii U launched

- Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge came out and fixed ALL of the problems with NG3.

- Scribblenauts Unlimited

- ZombiU

- Paper Mario Sticker Star finally came out on the 3DS

Also, that isn't counting any of the games I bought that were already out.

It was only bad for most since no good pew pew games came out for them. They need to expand their tastes lol.
