As 2012 comes to a close, we take the time to reflect on the big releases of the year and the final few titles that will have made recent months special. Celebrating some of the best titles of 2012 is the Spike VGA’s, which airs later this month.

The biggest release of December if undoubtedly that of Far Cry 3 (read our review), which releases in early December for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Of course, PC gamers can’t forget about the Mech game Hawken, which is sure to keep plenty of users busy over the Christmas holidays. There are also a couple of Vita titles, but aside from that December continues the tradition of being a slow month. Oh well, guess it’s as good a time as ever to clear out the back log.
