– Since Dan posted his games of the year, I’ll post my quick thoughts.
Sports game of the year – The new Fairway Solitaire – Easily the most time that I spent with any sports related game this year. Loved the changes that they made to the new version and still play it quite regularly. (Oh, and the iPod version appears to still be free at the following link. )
Console sports game of the year – (Tie) NBA 2K13 and MLB 12: The Show
Both games really are terrific for their representations of their sports. I do love the fact that I can upload my Show save to the cloud and play it on my Vita though.
Game of the year – Borderlands 2 – It’s not the same as the original, but it’s better in a lot of ways. Still one of the best co-op games that I’ve ever played, and it has one of the most comically entertaining villains that you will ever face.
Honorable mention – FTL – I have only had the game for the last few weeks, but trying to beat the game has become a major focus for me (and I still haven’t beaten it yet.. even on easy.) A terrific game for a low price.
