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.



___________

System defining games (over 70 on metacritic) not on the other. No amount of PS4 selling can take this away.

2013: Forza 5, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct > Killzone Shadowfall

2014: Titanfall, Sunset Overdrive, Project Spark, Forza Horizon 2, Master Chief Collection > Infamous SF, Drive Club, Little Big Planet 3, Last of Us (IMO lacking in content compared to MCC).

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.
