    Mine would have to be Final Fantasy XIII-2. Seriously. I loved XIII, but it was also a major disappointment to myself for being so different and separate from other FF entries. XIII-2 did get back a lot of that FF feel from other entries, although the story and plot was a huge, convoluted mess where everything was explained with a paradox.
    Still, can't wait for the 3rd!

    For me it was Spec Ops. A game that I showed no interest in whatsoever and marked as some generic military shooter. I was pleasantly surprised by it when I got it dirt cheap in a bundle. Not at all what I was expecting to say the least.

    Same here.

    Also X-Com: Enemy Unknown. I thought I wouldn't enjoy it, but I was pleasantly surprised - I loved it. I'm usually not big on strategy games, let alone turn-based ones.

    Hmm...

    Borderlands 1/2. I say these because I doubt I'd ever had play them if the first wasn't on PS+ and my cousin was over. It seemed like something even he could play. After the first session it was love at first sight. I'm currently working on the second now.
    I talk to myself because I'm the only one whose answers I accept.

    Assassins creed 3 was an excellent game in my opinion as a surprise winner for me

    Same.

    I saw all the low scores it got and all the hate. I had pre-ordered it so decided to give it a shot anyway, I usually don't follow reviews anymore. I think most of them are garbage.

    I actually got enjoyment out of the game. Not enough to warrant a second playthrough, but I had fun nevertheless. Good game. Not the best RE by any means, but a good game IMO.

    Borderlands 2, I didn't much like the first.. but the second is just amazing. It really is. My favorite game of last year.

    Likewise. Definitely a worthwhile experience.

    Other then that, Mass Effect 3 generated quite the controversy with their endings.

    Well, I was shocked by the original Mass Effect 3 ending and it certainly made me realize how invested I was in the story and characters. Was really happy about the extended cut.

    I don't think it's a 2012 game, but I got Saints Row the Third in the humble bundle and I love it. It's good to see a game that focuses on giving you a good time over everything else. Also I'm impressed by some of the action sequences. They have some serious Uncharted level stuff going on in that game.

    Dragon's Dogma. I knew it would be awesome. but still,i was surprised with how much
    I had no intentions of becoming a leader. It is as a warrior how I shall be remembered, but these are hardly numbers worth dying for.

    Overall I was blown away by Far Cry 3. I knew many of the games of 2012 would live up to expectations in my eyes. I saw Borderlands 2, Darksiders 2, FF XIII-2 (imo to be great), and ME 3 to be great. I didn't expect Far Cry 3 to suck me in so much and make me want to play a game again for hours on end without stopping. The game truly was amazing and wasn't expecting even close to that after much of the talk of mediocrity from FC2.

    Dishonored - amazingly rich and deep world and top notch gameplay
    Sleeping Dogs - Still playing and it's freaking amazing
    Journey - Can't even describe the experience

    "Spec Ops: The Line" was a big surprise for me, a guy who isn't really into shooters. The whole approach was unique and fun.

    My biggest surprise would have to be "Lollipop Chainsaw", mainly because I was ridiculously-overhyped for it, and it wound up exceeding what I expected. It's just my kinda game, I guess.


    Shut up and play games

    Two PC games for me.

    FTL - Faster Than Light: Such a simple concept and not really much to look at, but hugely playable. Addictive.
    Diablo III: Got masses of stick for the early release problems and how the game has been changed from it's old formula. However, since I didn't get it until a few months later and haven't played the first two; I'm enjoying it immensely. It has re-ignited my passion for A-RPG games.

    Watched a video of the gameplay of FTL. I've never heard of it before now. Looks really fun.

    Borderlands 2 or Assassin's Creed III. It's a toss up.

    Dishonored for me. Very unique game.

    I went to rent NFS wanted but they didn't have it in so I ended up grabbing Dishonored and thought it was great. Bit of a surprise.

    I would have to go with Dragons Dogma. Its the first Capcom game i have bought in years. I am really hoping they bring out a follow up. It would be third on my list for best game of 2012 after Mass Effect 3 and Borderlands 2
