The moment you've been waiting for!
Looking back over an entire year, it’s hard to tell which games are going to stand out through the years that follow. Which titles are people going to continue to talk about, get nostalgic over, and load up to replay next a decade from now? Maybe we had a few of those this year, but only time will tell. Perhaps we will look back on what we voted to be the very best of 2012 and our monocles will spin in amazement at our ageless judgment. Or maybe we’ll all laugh and wonder what we were thinking.

Sega?
A truly rewarding experience
These days, same old same old just does not cut it. When an RPG from Japan comes around that promises to be different, the modern gamer is understandably cynical. Thankfully, with a unique world, a fresh take on in game relationships, and an excellent use of in game rewards to encourage the player, Xenoblade Chronicles delivers the refreshing changes and modernizations many of us have been looking for.
