I used to do top 10s of everything when i was at uni. No time for that, here’s some stuff that I thought was awesome that was released in 2012:
- Dark Knight Rises
- Total Recall
- In Time
- Expendables 2
There were other good films, but a lot had flaws to stop them being awesome: Hobbit (48fps sucks), Skyfall (Ending sucked), Spiderman (Origin, again?). Plus i can’t get to cinema much nowadays.
- Hitman:Absolution – got as a backup xmas pressie – fave game of year
- Forza Horizon – better than normal Forza
- Far Cry 3 – just amazingly fun
- Kingdoms of Amalur
Again, some games just blew it – Mass Effect 3 had the worst ending ever, Ass Creed 3 had the worst start, Halo 4 is just a bit dull….
- Star Wars: Edge of the Empire
- Marvel Heroic Roleplaying
- Iron Kingdoms
- Dungeon World (does it count when book isn’t out yet)
- Lords of Waterdeep
- Star Wars LCG
- Netrunner LCG
- Warmahordes (ok, not 2012 release, but that’s when i got into it)
On a sadder, personal note, i lost two friends to cancer in 2012. So it wasn’t all Awesome.
