Hancock's top 10 games of 2012

Woah! A top 10 list! This list is actually different than the one I submitted to Hamza a while ago for the official awards, and to be honest, I'm still not sure I'm happy with it. There were a lot of quality titles that came out this year, and thus narrowing it down to 10 is impossibly hard.
All the cool kids are doing it! See?


^Those are some of the coolest kids I know!

Games I haven't played enough so unfortunately I can't put them on this list: Xenoblade Chronicles, Mark of the Ninja, Tokyo Jungle, Sound Shapes, Retro City Rampage, McPixel, Virtue's Last Reward. I'M SORRY TO ALL THESE GAMES

Honorable Mentions: Mario Chase (and I guess the rest of Nintendoland), New Super Mario Bros. U, Dishonored, Rhythm Heaven Fever, Hotline Miami, FTL

It worries me that people won't play FEZ because they disagree with what Phil Fish has said in the past. It also worries me that people will play through FEZ once and mistake it for a charming platformer with no real depth and an interesting mechanic.

FEZ had enveloped my girlfriend and I for over 20 hours as we tried to get to the bottom of the meticulously detailed world. After pages of pages of notes and hours of wracking our brains, we eventually completed everything. Seeing the Internet at large trying to decode some of FEZ's secrets isn't something that happens often. Hell, I'd reckon this is a once-in-a-lifetime game. When FEZ is ported to PC, do yourself a favor and pick it up. Then do yourself another favor and don't put it down until you can understand EVERYTHING.
