Reader’s Choice – Top 5 Most Anticipated Games Of 20122 By Jason Matthew
We’ve been taking a poll the last month or so, asking our readers what games they are most looking forward to this year. The results are in. Here are your top 5 most anticipated games of 2012!
5. Twisted Metal
Twisted Metal released last month and has gotten rave reviews, considered to be a great return to form for the franchise, which hadn’t seen a release since 2001’s Twisted Metal Black. David Jaffe and company managed to hit this one out of the park.
4. Diablo 3
This upcoming dark fantasy action- RPG has been in development for ages, first being announced in June 2008. The PC crowd is heavily anticipating this one, although it’s currently uncertain whether Diablo 3 will see release on consoles.
SSX is yet another return to form, this time from EA. This is another series that hasn’t seen a great release since the early 2000’s, but this new reboot is getting great reviews and just debuted a few days ago. Download the demo on PSN and Xbox LIVE, it’s fantastic!
2. Max Payne 3
Yet another relic from the early 2000’s, the Max Payne series has been all but forgotten. However, Rockstar has since become known for putting out top quality titles like Red Dead Redemption and LA Noire, so we have high hopes for this title.
1. Mass Effect 3
Most of you probably saw this one coming. Mass Effect 3 blew away the competition in our poll, taking a massive 45% of all votes. The hype behind this game is enormous, and hopefully BioWare will deliver. Mass Effect 2 certainly did not disappoint.
