Best PC Games 2012 Summary

By looking at the best PC games 2012 list. You can notice that this list is not quite as large as some of the others. But actually, there was still some great PC games released in 2012. In this summary, we are going to be having a look at a few of the biggest PC titles released in 2012. These games were great back then and are still worth playing today.

 

The annual Call of Duty game did not have a Battlefield to fight with this year. Call of Duty: Black Ops II was actually very well received and it still has quite the following online now. EA tried to wrestle back some of that first-person shooter market share with their second Medal of Honor game, Warfighter. Which was a sequel to the 2010 reboot.

 

While not a terrible game, Medal of Honor just did not have what it takes to topple Call of Duty.

 

Far Cry 3 was released to major critical acclaim and with good reason too. It was a very well made game that also had a tremendous and engaging story.

 

Another one of the good PC games of 2012 was The Darkness II. This sequel took what made the first game good and made it even better. Sadly as good as this game was… a very good game in our opinion. It did not exactly sell a ton of copies so a third game is very unlikely.

 

Several impressive action games launched this year and many of these are on our best PC games 2012 list. The first game we have to mention is Mass Effect 3. Which closed this part of the Mass Effect saga. Interestingly there was such a public outcry about the ending of this game that Bioware had to go and create a whole new one!

 

It certainly took a while but Max Payne was finally back as Rockstar released Max Payne 3. Featuring an older and slightly more insane Max Payne.

 

One game that is well deserving of a spot on any best PC games 2012 list is the amazing Sleeping Dogs. In this third-person sandbox-style game. You play as an undercover cop trying to take down gangs in Hong Kong. All whilst trying to deal with the corrupt Hong Kong Police Department. This game is just incredible and a game you have to add to your collection.

 

Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes took many people by surprise. Lego games have been around for ages. But this one added 2 things that set it apart from the rest. First of all this was the first game in the series to have full voice acting. But it was the large open world Gotham City which many gamers fell in love with.

 

Of course, you cannot talk about the best PC games 2012 without mentioning The Walking Dead! This game was huge. Won a ton of game of the year awards. And is regarded as one of the best stories ever told in a video game. Very few games manage to force you to have such a huge emotional attachment to the characters like this one does.

 

With 2012 being one of the most powerful years to date for PC gamers. We can only guess at what is to come in the future years.
