This isn't just a list of awesome video games from 2012 (that much shorter list comes later). There will be some not-so-great games listed here as well. There will be some games that didn't release in 2012, but still made a mark on the year regardless. There will even be some games that will never release.
What all of these games have in common is that they're representative of a trend or interesting story that captured the zeitgeist of 2012 — they all say something about what happened this year.
