Forums - Gaming Discussion - What has been the worst year for gaming in the past decade? - 2012!

I would have to say last year was absolutely horrible.

 

Resident Evil was a let down.

 

Another CoD.

 

5 worthwhile 3DS games to buy?

 

WiiU really only had 3 original games. One was a compilation of sorts.

 

Vita had 3-4 worthwhile games and CoD was not peoples cup of tea it seems.

2012 is my vote

 

 

Agree?

2012 was a fairly decent year.

Especially for 360 owners.

I'm not really here!

Definately 1984.

Sorry, didn't read the whole title. So I'll agree with you. 2012 was worse than 2011 or 2010^^



By decade you mean 2002-2012? 2012 was great IMO, it had Halo 4 :)

Id say 2005. Hard to think of any notable games in that year.

Pretend Exclusive: A 3rd party multiplat, that releases for multiple consoles in the same window, in which all press showings and marketing are catered to only one console. Exclusive console bundles, being the lead platform, as well as timed exclusive/exclusive  betas and game content also strengthen the claim. The final effect is that the uninformed gamer will be convinced that the version primarily advertised is the only and/or best place to experience the game.

X1: Titanfall, COD: AW.    PS4: Watch Dogs, Destiny

Xbox E3 Exclusives: Halo MCC, Crackdown 3, Phantom Dust, Scalebound, Dance Central Spotlight

As a whole I would say 2012 though. You guys got a few titles. Better than Nintendo Imo, but still nothing to write home about. So what year wild you say then?^

2001 - The year Sega discontinued the Dreamcast and left the console hardware market. That's the worst year in gaming. It was an end of an era. If the Golden Age of Gaming was in the arcade then the Silver Age died with the Dreamcast.

It may be slightly longer ago than a decade, but gaming hasn't been the same since.

Yes @ sales

@ khlover


That was 30 years ago. I bet 1960 was even worse than 84. Does not count.

Halo 4 is the game of the decade and so 2012 can't be the worst. Halo 4 makes 2012 one of the greatest years in gaming history.



Consoles always get a game or two that are great. Does not mean the year was saved. Look at sales.
