Games We Liked 2012

  • Journey

    It’s The Notes They Don’t Play

    The lack of identity in Journey. The lack of bombast in Far Cry 3. The lack of accoutrements in Super Hexagon. As our 2012 staff picks conclude, we realize that absences can make the heart grow fonder.

  • Mass Effect 3

    All’s Well That Ends Well

    Diablo III entertains, Frog Fractions befuddles, and the Mass Effect 3 conclusion delights at least one of our writers in today’s year-end staff picks.

  • Tokyo Jungle

    It’s A Dog-Eat-Hippo-Eat-Hyena World

    But games like Tokyo Jungle, Dishonored, and many others nonetheless found their way into our hearts this year.
