General News - 50 Games that Defined 2012, The Other Parts

by Myrthos, 2012-12-21 00:31:17

Just in case you were waiting to read about the other 30 defining games here are part 3, part 4 and part 5.

From the games we have followed in the past the following are mentioned: Mass Effect 3, the failed Kickstarter for Shaker and XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

The fact that XCOM: Enemy Unknown even exists is kind of weird, in the best way possible. During a time when major publishers like Take-Two are investing in console-based first-person shooters and action games that take place in big, sprawling virtual worlds, here strolls in XCOM: Enemy Unknown, a turn-based strategy game developed mainly with consoles in mind (though also available on PC, naturally). It's a game based off of a classic series that was born in the 90s on PC, it's developed by a studio that is among the elite PC strategy game developers, and it's getting a pretty good amount of attention from players. That bodes well for this idea that maybe players are willing to pay a triple-A price for a quality strategy game -- a game that makes them think instead of running and gunning.
