My fav 2012 game is Joy Ride Turbo (XBLA), a classic-controller-based arcade cartoon racer with avatars from the same Kinect Joy Ride creators. Very many hours to play and hundreds of trophies, hidden objects and cars to collect and unlock. Highly recommended and more enjoyable than Trials Evo IMHO...

Bumping since it's the last day to post before I pick the first winner!

Once again, I won't be picking anyone who writes a simple sentence or less.

Good luck. :)

Just found this! Here's my .02.

Torchlight 2.

How do you one-up Torchlight 1? You add multi-player and ramp up the storyline and customization options. I absolutely loved the new classes offered and being able to destroy some funky-looking undead and goblinoids with my fiance was awesome. It filled the void that Diablo III left for me quite easily. The system requirements on the game are quite lax, which allows me to play it on my gaming rig and for her to play it on her low-end laptop with Intel HD graphics quite easily.

Sure, I could have picked a number of other titles that likely are deserving: Borderlands 2, Guild Wars 2, Dishonored, Persona 4 Golden, or Assassin's Creed 3... But how many of those offer you the endless hours of fun for the price tag of a mere $20.00? Add in the sales that were done this holiday season and you have a true CAG game of the year.

Personally i dont really have a 2012 favorite i simply there was a game that i found that hooked me and made me slobber over myself just to play it when i was outside the house sure there was a couple ones that made passing the time easier and allowed for some fun times with friends online, like Mass Effect 3 while i still havent finished the SP(no hook after a while into it ) the mp was suprisingly fun and friends which who knew nothing about the franchise got into it becuz of the MP, and wow did we get frustrated at times with it, hours of suriving too buy thosse damn boxes just to get a pistol that just tickles the enemy or a mod i dont use or the friggin redo a character thing... then there was Boderlands 2 whose charm and comedy made it a fun ride but it seems its time in the spotlight was cut short with the release of holiday pwerhouses like COd and Halo and for while a there a tried to play solo but like many once the amp shields were changed soloing was too much of a hassle maybe if the increased drops it would be worth it... powerhouse COD came in and everyone on the friends list just crammed into its lobbies and like many i have a love hate relationship with it overall its a good game but once again i think the map layout, spawns, and game balances and reintergration of full quickscoping makes me want to burn the game, not to mention the horrible lag compensation and map count which seriously feels lacking with the amount the gamers have put into the franchise you would hope a couple a free map packs with past game maps would come out as a thank you but no we get 4+1zmb packs again at 15 bucks a pop

but for the sake of this contest and to forget this little rant of mine
ill vote for Mass effect 3 simply as a first try into mp it wasnt bad and most of the available DLC was included at no charge

now lets hope for the next gen to come out as fast as possible see if we cant get some real improvements in gameplay i.e player count in games

My favorite game of 2012 is Heroes of Ruin. It is a fun dungeon crawler, with daily quests and shows what can be done on the 3DS. The multiplayer is pretty good and it's easy to drop in and out of action. The voice chat even works pretty well.

I hope someone makes more like it.

I've enjoyed Resident Evil 6 the most, with 80 hours in and counting.

I swear I had posted here, but I guess not.

My favorite game is The Walking Dead. I haven't finished it, but the story is just too amazing. Even without much gameplay, I can't believe that they could create such a heartpounding game.

My favorite game I played in 2012 was Professor Layton and the Last Specter. The puzzles were great with a lot of variety in difficulty. I enjoyed learning about how the professor first met Luke (this game is a prequel, but I still suggest playing the others first). After completing the main game, there is still sooo much more to play with downloadable puzzles and even a full rpg game within the game! Definitely my favorite game to play in 2012. I'm looking forward to picking up the next Professor Layton once I buy a 3DS.

assassins creed 3, even though I disliked parts of the ending, I felt closer the characters than I had since the first game, I was sucked into the single player and lost days doing ever random mission, finding all of the feathers and book pages. I couldn't get enough.

Mass effect 3 has my vote. The single player was good, and I still play the multiplayer. Got to love those ME3opreations.

DLC was great.

My favorite game of 2012 was Assassins Creed 3. As a huge U.S. history buff, I really enjoyed the Revolutionary War setting. It was pretty cool how they incorporated major events during that period into the Assassins Creed storyline.

Thanks for the opportunity.

Mark of the Ninja XBLA game. Bought it while it was on sale.
it's a quick refreshment from all the high profile games I've played recently. I like the controls and the gameplay. It's smooth and easy to use which I really look for in 2D side scrolling games.
Also like the art style

The favorite game I played in 2012 would have to be The Witcher 2 for Xbox 360. I played the Witcher 1 on PC and loved it, but unfortunately I haven't upgraded my PC in a very long time so I was unable to get Witcher 2. So I was really happy when Witcher 2 was ported to 360, and it looks pretty good to boot. The game also has a bunch of improvements to the first one and you really get immersed in the world, with meaningful choices that completely change where you go in the second act.

My favorite for 2012 was Dragon's Dogma. It takes a bit to get into it, but once you beat the game, the new game plus feature make the game even more fun the second time around. I really liked the pawn system too.

Since I only got and played 3 games from 2012 this won't be very difficult. The three games that I got and played were Call of Duty Black Ops 2, Borderlands 2, and Forza Horizon. Out of these three games I would have to say that Borderlands 2 was probably my favorite. I absolutely loved the first one and this was was probably my most anticipated game, ever. Second I would have to pick Forza Horizon because I could just not stop playing that game once I popped it in. The gameplay was fantastic, the driving was so smooth and the soundtrack is amazing! Black Ops 2 is a good game, but it's more of the same, which is not a bad thing and which is why I bought it. I missed playing a call of duty and black ops 2 was perfect for that "craving."

Thank you for having this giveaway!

Borderlands 2. I probably spent most of 2012 playing this awesome game.

My favorite game has to have been Halo 4. I was very skeptical about this game going into it, and I think that is why I liked it so much. I didn't expect too much from it, and 343 definitely delivered. The graphics and game play are very good. Though many people didn't like it, I think the integration of some of the more popular Call of Duty features were very well done and add to the multiplayer experience. Overall a fantastic game.

Far Cry 3 has surprised me in every way. There is so much to do in the game and I can't stop playing. Vaas is one of the best characters to come around in a while as well. I was hesitant going into this after Far Cry 2 (not saying its a bad game, it wasn't) but glad I made the purchase.

My favorite game for 2012 was Dragon's Dogma/The Witcher 2. Since The Witcher 2 is technically a 2011 game which I didn't get to play till it came to the 360, I'm using that caveat to give both games a mention. Dragon's Dogma was a surprisingly delightful game with much deeper mechanics than are apparent at a first glance. There was a sense of adventure every time I stepped out of a city, a feeling that I realized I had sorely missed and I was also glad that despite the initial suggestion of a weak story, the latter part of the game revealed as solid a core premise as any which with slightly better delivery could have stood proudly among much more lauded story driven games.

Dragon's Dogma. I must have put over 100 hours into it before I 1k'd it. Capcom really nailed it on the head. It's a Dark-Souls styled game that's a little easier to get into.

Favorite game of 2012, damn that's a tough question. My first thought was to give it to borderlands 2 because of the fun I had and am still having with my friends on it but the more I think about it I'll have to give it to Batman Arkam City. The gameplay was amazing and never a dull moment. The story was epic and left me wanting more. So yes my favorite game for 2012 will have to be Batman Arkam City.

Congrats to canvasch for his post about Forza Horizon! He originally picked a different game, but made a valid edit and explained as to why he chose it.

I'll pick another winner end of the month! Feel free to edit if you like as well, but be sure to explain your choice!
