List Criteria: Only Videogames Released in 2012

Top Video Games of 2012. Every year so many video games are released that it is hard to decide which is the best. 2012 was no exception. 2012 brought us the stirring conclusion to such blockbuster videogame series like Mass Effect 3, Assassin's Creed 3 and Max Payne 3, while also introducing us to new game series like Dishonored, The Walking Dead and a new Halo brand with Halo 4.
