I could easily have a list of 30 games and struggle with cutting many of them. Of those here I could also move some around no issue. Very very challenging to list.



1. Battlefield: Bad Company 2

2. Borderlands 2

3. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 1

4. Resistance 1

5. The Last of Us

6. Bioshock 1

7. Mass Effect 2

8. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

9. Gravity Rush

10. Trials Evolution

 

11. Uncharted 2

12. Doom 3 BFG Edition

13. Dark Souls

14. Max Payne 3

15. NBA Jam on Fire Edition



Honoarable Mentions = Metal Gear Solid 4, Fable, Chinatown Wars, Killzone Mercenary, Killzone 2, Halo 3, Infamous1, 2, Shadows of the Damned, Rage, Tomb Raider

 

The fact that Borderlands 2 is not in the top 25 yet is a travesty.  Best game of 2012 by a longshot.



Important question, Vita/3DS qualifies for all this? Anything that released before PS4/Xbone release?

Same question for PS2/PSP/DS games that released after PS360 released.

Edit: So I read a bit into the thread and realized you're defining it solely by consoles/handhelds meaning PS2, Wii U, Vita, and 3DS games are all off limits.

You can come change it if you want but I decided to do it now because there isnt really anything too noteworthy left that isnt also on next generation consoles.

Even though GT is big racing games have never done good in this competition.


Not that I'm complaining because I appreciate you compiling this data but... I don't think you can call this the "definitive" version because there will be games released after PS4/Xbone for current gen that people will want to list.

Last gen had God of War 2; then tonnes of Japanese stuff like Persona 3 & 4/Rogue Galaxy/Odin Sphere and my own personal favourite, Wild ARMs 5.

Certainly, 2014 seems to have a similar lineup of Japanese releases to 2007.

they will be both meaning you can still vote for them.  Look at Twilight Princess as an example.  People still vote for it a lot and it is on Gamecube as well as Wii
