2012 has been one hell of a year for gaming. With the beginning of a new generation of consoles just around the corner, game developers and publishers have been trying their absolute hardest to get as many triple-A titles out on store shelves as they can. In doing so, they’ve made the last year of the current generation of consoles unforgettable. We also saw the release of the PSVita and the Wii U, and the continuing rise of iOS and Android games. So, in honor of a fantastic year of gaming, I’ve decided to compile a list of my favorite titles of 2012.

Back when I was in my prime age of about 8 years old, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were my jam.  I used to watch the television show, play with the action figures, and run around with a cardboard Christmas wrapping paper roll pretending it was a bo staff.  Today, about 50% of my nerdy shirts are TMNT related.  Heck, the drinking glasses in my apartment even have ninja turtle characters on them.  I recently decided to crack open a can of nostalgia by reading Teenage Mutant Ninja Annual 2012.

Hello there everyone! It’s my first time posting here at G&C, and what better way to start things off than with some snarky thoughts on E3?
