Nominees For We Got This Covered’s Best Games Of 2012



“With Dishonored, Arkane Studios’ team members have hit one out of the proverbial park. Although its teleportation aiming system could have been tighter, the game is simply fantastic, and helps to show what interesting ideas can lead to. If you’re looking for a new experience this fall, this is one to put on your shopping list.”

The Walking Dead

” the first season of The Walking Dead has been a real treat. Telltale deserves major props for changing up the adventure game formula in some quite successful ways, as well as delivering a solid story and cast of characters. If you haven’t tried the series yet, start from the beginning and enjoy your journey through the zombie apocalypse. You’ll be glad you did.”
