Far Cry 3 just waltzed in at the back end of last year and wiped the floor with everyone. Halo? COD? forget about it, 2012 belonged to Far Cry 3. You have a huge tropical playground to explore with multiple collectibles and mission strands to complete. A huge improvement over the last game with less malaria and jamming guns and more stabby stealth and pirate bases. Make sure you don't miss out on the excellent online co-op too.
