Besides those three, it's been a pretty dull year so far.
I'm actually surprised to see Max Payne 3 crack the top 10, I felt like only a handful of gamers got behind that title.
Im looking forward to Sleeping Dogs as my next game.
6 out of 10.

Not bad [MOG]
Blob
+
And they're all bad [MOG]
I haven't played four of them: Diablo, Skylanders, M&S and Assassin's Creed [Shifty]
Seriously who here bought Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games? [Shifty]
lol 2 out of 10. [MOG]
Diablo, MW3 and Skyrim aren't surprising. It's good for THQ that Saints Row The Third did so well though. And wow, look at Skylanders, that game came out of nowhere.
1-8 + 10= [Shifty]
9 = The top 10 selling games of 2012 in Australia

Max Payne is the best out of that lot

The only 2012 release I've bought is the Sega Olympics game lol :P I'm a sucker for those, don't care how bad they are.

Get out.
Skyrim, Saints Row, and Assassin's Creed (Didn't even play much of Assassin' s Creed)

Nintendo don't have very much up there, but I'm guessing by the end of the second half of the year, we should see more up there.

Yep very dull but hopefully in just over a month it swings in to full gear.
brought 4 out of the 10 ;/

me3/skyrim/bf3/diablo...

Practically all games are from last year. The only good exception is Max Payne [Shifty]
