In a year packed with shooters, there was one game that led the pack for us: Borderlands 2. This isn’t your standard Call of Duty schlock; this is a game that’s bursting at the seams with personality.

Oh yeah, you’re not letting small children play this, are you?

What did fans want most from the next game in the Halo series? How about a game that feels entirely new yet entirely classic at the same time? That’s a tall order, but Halo 4 somehow served it up. Yeah, even after playing through that, we’re not entirely sure how that was even possible.
