While we live for looking forward to what new games come out each year, we dread the overwhelming process of picking only a select few to rank as our most anticipated. Starting with a list of over 80 games releasing in 2012, the Game Rant editorial staff has narrowed down and ranked what games appeal to us the most at the beginning of the year.
From shooters and Fantasy RPGs to MMOs and action adventures, there’s a wide variety of titles that have caught our eye. Some titles that we’re looking forward to do not have a publisher or a 2012 release date and may be noticeably absent – these get a special mention at the end if they’re something we’re highly anticipating. So without further ado, continue on for our 25 Most Anticipated Video Games of 2012.
