In many parts of the world it is still 2012, while the year 2013 has started traveling from the farthest east and is rapidly traveling due west - just about 15 minutes from Pakistan.
As the year 2012 wraps itself up, reviewers and analysts are hurrying up with their collections of events, gadgets, smartphones, apps and games that stood out from the rest. Of many such efforts, Mashable has compiled a list of top 10 best video games of the year 2012.
Top 10 Video Games of 2012
I am sure the gamers must have heard these names, but the listing may or may not be the one as they would have thought. However, here is one listing of the top 10 best video games of the year 2012 and let us see if these match your liking or not. The names given are from bottom upwards:
10. FTL: Faster Than Light
9. Spec Ops: The Line
8. Hotline Miami
6. Far Cry 3
5. Halo 4
3. XCOM: Enemy Unknown
1. The Walking Dead
Why Walking Dead as no.1? Well the Walking Dead has already snatched a number of "Game of the Year" awards, hopefully paving the way for more like it.
The game is one of the most visceral experiences ever offered by the medium. Some of the most fascinating information can be gleaned from the statistics developer TellTale Games releases after each episode, detailing how players reacted to each of the key decisions. Often the numbers aren't a decisive split, proving the game is playing with the murkiest levels of moral ambiguity.
