Worrying that I only have two of those (Lego Batman 2, and The Walking Dead).
XCOM, Dishonoured, and Far Cry 3 are all on my watch list - I definitely intend getting all three this year.

Don't think I'll be playing Journey or The Unfinished Swan any time soon (if memory serves both are ps3 exclusives - but I may be mistaken).
