Here are the top 20 games. Looking down the list my poor gaming year is highlighted even more by the fact I’ve only played 6 of those of which 3 are 2012 releases and 3 are 2011 games. I do though have Halo 4 on my shelf waiting to be played and will definitely play Black Ops 2, Far Cry 3, Assassins Creed 3 and Sleeping Dogs at some point.
