Literally the best games in their own respective genres. Something for everyone to love.

Skyrim, Dark Souls, Arkham City, Portal 2, Minecraft (full release), L.A. Noire, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Fight Night Champion, Mortal Kombat, Witcher 2, the Binding of Isaac, Super Mario 3D Land and Limbo. The first 3 alone make it the best year for gaming ever in my opinion.

Minecraft took the world by storm, the 3DS was like a portable IMAX theatre for video games, and who can forget Skylanders rising in popularity. This was such a good time in gaming, Anti-Gamer Gate was non existant, and Reddit was rising in popularity.
