Top Adventure Games of 2012
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top adventure games of 2012, a list of the best videogames, generated by editorial reviews and popularity on the site. Here's a look at our favourites...
Fans of the original will feel that the entire soul of the game has been ripped out and replaced with a cheerier but gormless imposter.
Resonance is an admirable but frustrating adventure game that asks big questions of you, but doesn't bother listening to your answers.
Paper Mario: Sticker Star's vibrant, buoyant world marries so well with the script's deliciously wry take on Mario's classic tropes. It's just a real shame that the rest of the game feels paper thin.
This is a game that'll stick in your brain by virtue of originality alone, then, but if Catherine can't take itself seriously then why should we?
Ghost Trick is well worth the price of admission, but sadly the game lets itself down with its overall simplicity and the disappointment of its crucial final act.
Layton is a good distance removed from the hysteria that surrounded his debut title, then, but the fifth game in this stylised series is enough to keep you entertained.
Utterly lovely, although certainly imperfect, Botanicula is a game filled with soul and bursting with imagination. As you click your way to victory, it'll be hard to stop grinning.
This is a trilogy that plays great, looks even better and gels together more seamlessly than any other HD collection I've played to date.
Alan Wake is still a superbly scripted adventure on PC.
Journey is an immaculately constructed, expertly choreographed experience that tells a story in an intelligent way, exploring themes of faith and fate, death and rebirth with a rare delicacy of touch.
