1 Assassin's Creed III

For me the greatest game ever made I'm a fan of assassins creed series and I love playing those but this game is so much better than anything this is a game that never gets you to be bored.

3 Battlefield 3

An Awesome Game With Awe Insipring Graphics

Eum BF3 is a good game but its 2011, this list is 2012

4 The Walking Dead

You can choose your own story, making this all the more great. Then little Clementine just steals your heart, making me tear up at the moments where Lee saves her and protects her with his life. His last moments her just for her, finding her that one day makes a life worth of changes.

Man I love lee and the girl those are my favorite characters of the game

2nd best game ever.

5 Darksiders II

Better than A. C 3.A. C 3 was the worst A. C of all time

6 The Last of Us
7 Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

Hack and Slash, all the way! THIS is what I call a game.

8 Call of Duty: Black Ops II

This has a better story

!
How is this nmber 13

9 Hitman Absolution

From the journey of codename 47 to absolution, hitman absolution undoubtedly is a stone cold classic. With the original ultimate assassin going on an alone journey, and 20 missions across USA, this game is a synonym of stealth, with a living breathing world, disguises, creating contracts and ultimate weapons, all under 47, under our hand

Its the one of the best stealth games ever made! And the slow motion thing has added a brand new awesome feature in this game. But the story's not so good...

Ok people are clearly dumb, Grand Theft Auto, The last of us and various other entries on this list didn't come out until 2013

10 Ninja Gaiden 3

The Contenders

11 DmC: Devil May Cry
