Our Highest and Lowest Rated Games of 2012

Happy Sad
Written by Barry Villatoro

As we go through the last stages of our Game of the Year picks. I decided to go back through to see what we at LevelSave rated some of the games this year. It made me realize just how many great games came out this year and, how many of these great games I have yet to play. I mean, I just don’t think you can actually play all the good games that come out in one year, it’s almost not possible anymore. Not if you actually have to leave the couch, at least.

What was most surprising to me was that fact that many of our highest rated games came from indie developers. Journey, Fez, FTL, Mark of the Ninja, all were done by smaller studios and all have received high praise. Then there were the games that didn’t do so well. Many games received scores under a 6 this year, some that I had high hopes for. Below you will find our highest and lowest rated games of 2012. Each game is linked to its review if you want a more in-depth look at it.

    I thought I Am Alive would have been good. But never played it.

    I thought Diablo3 would be much lower, as even die-hard Blizzard fans hated it. But then again, Blizzard is getting a lot of hate now because their best designers are all working on ‘Titan.’ So their games have taken a hit for sure.

    Darksiders 2, FTL and Mark of the Ninja are on my list of games to play.

  • Jam Live Music Arcade was a game that was laced with the cocaine of frustration and the PCP of mediocrity.

  • I was too easy on Amy…
