2013 Resolutions: Digging into the backlogs

2012 had an incredible lineup of strong video game releases; so much so that many of the “must-play” titles have been missed by many members of our staff. The year may be over, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be playing catch-up with all of 2012’s best releases. These are the games that our staff members have been wanting to play, but for whatever reason, they never got to them in 2012. Unfortunately for us, we have very limited time to make a dent in these lists, as we have an onslaught of releases starting up in February.
