Well Kael started a thread about your biggest dissappointment, but what was the greatest aquistion you did in 2012?

It doesn't have to be a new game? Maybe its that one game that you have been searching for for so long? Maybe it's a game now one ever heard off? Maybe it was the 'hot' 2012 game. Just add it to the list!

And while we are at the subject I want to show this geeklist as well:

Well it would have been better if I would have gotten the 2 person arcade game (maybe this will show up another year), but I'm pretty happy with this buy as well.

I loved this game in the arcade and still love it. So happy that I have the gun and the game at home and that I was finally able to finish the game (something I didn't get to do in the arcade back then).

This is probably my favorite game this year mostly because of all the fun I've had with mulitplayer.

This could have been a difficult choice, as I've (bought and) played so many great games this year... Batman: Arkham City and Orcs Must Die! 2 to name but two, but given just how many hours I have poured into Legend of Grimrock, and the dungeon editor that was released I simply have to pick this.
I'm close to finishing my mod (I know I keep saying this), but I just have to put in something for the finale and flesh out a couple of other regions and then I am done and can let it loose for the willing play-testers.

I bought this one on a whim. I have a copy of Forza 2, but never got into it. With the release of Forza Horizon this one dropped in price and I got a deal on a bargain Microsoft Wireless Speed Wheel to go with it. Well, I've never looked back! Countless hours behind the wheel, have opened my eyes to my love of driving games. This one is near perfection, with a driver simulation that really captures a sense of speed. The car customization is top notch and the stable of 400+ cars means you have plenty of rides to choose from. This game's a keeper.

This was soooo hard to decide. Borderlands 2 was able to be both hilarious and fun for hours on end, XCOM: Enemy Unknown on ironman mode was tense and gripping, and Spec Ops: The Line managed to really surprise me despite all the buzz I had heard about its compelling storytelling.

But in the end, I'm giving it to FTL for repeatedly kicking my ass over and over again, and making me love it.

I know I'm a bit behind the curve on this one, but it really blew me away. 120 hours, and then I finally decided I really wanted to start more games on my backlog and felt like I needed to beat one I had running in order to do so. I'd already randomly wandered for hours, ascended to the top of the mage guild, ran most of the daedra lord quests, etc. But I was just totally impressed with the giant world, scripted characters, the whole 9 yards. Fallout3 was pleasant enough, but the grey post-apocalyptic atmosphere just didn't draw me in like this gigantic world.

I picked this up at a Game Stop after one of the workers turned in a bunch of PS2 games in pristine condition. I got first pick on a number of them and Suikoden III was the first game I grabbed. Sadly one of his coworkers stole Suikoden V before I had a chance to get it (the jerk) and that's about as close as I ever got to having Suikoden V within my grasp.

I purchased a truck-load of other PS2 RPG games but this one is by far my favorite. Also the music is great and I occasionally get the them stuck in my head.

I’m a fan of Monster Hunter so I figured I’d give this a try. It turned out to be far less tedious and extremely enjoyable to play. An engaging plotline also kept me coming back. I’m defiantly looking forward to the sequel.

No game has provided my friends and I more hours of enjoyment in 2012 than Rock Band 3.
