I know I'm an odd man out on this one when I say 2012 was best for me, but I'm not sure why, there were a ton of good games that year. Halo 4, Borderlands 2, Sleeping Dogs, Dishonored, Witcher 2 (360 version), Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, The Walking Dead season 1, Dust: An Elysian Tale, Far Cry 3, Assassin's Creed 3, Dead or Alive 5, Resident Evil 6, and Forza Horizon all released in 2012 and were all 8.5/10 or higher games for me personally, and I believe 7 of those were 9/10+ for me, by far the most 9/10 games from any gaming year in my lifetime. Some other noteworthy 2012 games include Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Xenoblade Chronicles, CoD Black Ops 2, New Super Mario Bros U, Max Payne 3, Trials Evolution, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, CS: GO, and Mass Effect 3.
2011 and 2015 were great as well, largely thanks to games like Skyrim and Deus Ex in 2011 and Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 in 2015. 2018 has been pretty good as well.
