I know how this looks. I can’t ignore that the original number ten post that has already been published on this blog. What I can do is admit that I am not impervious to mistakes, correct myself and move on. Halo 4 was prematurely posted to my top ten list before I played a few games released in 2012 that I had missed. Now that I have completed a few of them, I’d like to move on and restart the list from square one. Of the games I revisited however, I’d like to note that Assassin’s Creed III will not be appearing on my top ten.
Tenth Favorite Game of 2012
Spec Ops: The Line
After having little to no interest in the revival of this all but forgotten series, Black Friday reeled me in with a price I could not refuse. Once actually playing it, I was enamored by the scale and terror that envelopes Dubai in Captain Walker’s journey. Without spoiling too much, this game has a ton of ‘meta’ elements in it that I came to appreciate, along with a story that can actually inspire a certain sense of regret that most games of this type lack. It’s refreshing to say the least, and I hope this isn’t the last we see in this style of shooter.
