It’s no secret that the summertime isn’t kind to us gamers. Outside of E3, there’s very few quality events or releases to look forward to in the June to early August timeframe, especially when compared to the rest of the year. As we find ourselves on the precipice of the holiday season, with some incredibly exciting games on the horizon, this is a fantastic time to take a look back at what 2012 has offered us so far. This has been a pretty remarkable time to be a horror fan as we saw more horror games in February and March than we usually see in entire years. Head past the break to cast your votes for the best and worst of 2012 so far!
You might’ve noticed the “Dead Days of Summer” banner. This is a brand spanking new series that’ll (hopefully) keep you entertained for the week as we patiently wait for the first wave of major titles to jump into our open arms (starting with Darksiders II and Sleeping Dogs on 8/14). Today is Day 1, and on Day 7 I’ll announce the winners of our “Halfies” awards. Until then, get to voting!
