“Computers have a lot of memory but no imagination in itself as the fantasy part is taken over by PC Games”.

Talk to any dedicated gamer and you will realize what it means. True, gamers have a world of their own. You may call them addicts, you may call them freaks or you may call it madness. However, one cannot deny the fact that most of these computer games have dominated the world of entertainment for kids and adults in the past 15 years.

Here, let us review some of the most expected PC games scheduled for release in 2012-

Half life 2 Episode 3

Half life 2 Episode 3 tops the list of the most anticipated computer games of 2012. The Half-Life series of video games are science fictions that have an alternate history. This one is the third and final instalment in the series of episodes with Half-Life 2 being the former version.

Developed by Valve Corporation, the series of games released so far were massive hits and the speculations revolving around the upcoming series is equally hot. It is extremely hard to silence or even turn a blind eye towards these rumours on the upcoming game, thanks to the success of the past episodes.

And of course, as gamers we have the right to expect and dream for more. So keep your fingers crossed as you may be playing the game of your life.

Diablo 3

Diablo 3 is yet another much awaited game that features dark fantasy and horror themed action role-play. Developed by Blizzard and his team, Diablo 3 makes its third edition debut by early 2012. The game was first announced in June 28, 2008 and very few know that it was a fantastic mix of thrill, horror, miseries, excitement and full of entertainment. It is a perfect blend of action and adventure with music and sound effects complimenting the game’s thrill.

The Diablo 3 is expected to have a feel that is similar or better to that of the earlier games in the series with innovative slots for armour and weaponry. As a game lover, you may expect a treat for your new year.

StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm

Another action-packed game is on the way-

StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm. The theme of the event is a military science fiction nature and real-time strategy. The game spans approximately twenty missions and is more likely to be released by April 2012.

With different characters casting different powers, the game calls for a lot of intelligence and swift actions, making it more thrilling. With a strong story line up that is revolving around the game, every scene or action here has a meaningful touch to it.

For those who have played the earlier series of the game, this version promises to be a convincing update with even better improvisations.

Battle field 3

Battle Field 3 game is purely a depiction of the 21st century action cinema. It is a catastrophic event of destruction and gunfire in the remotely located cityscapes around the world. The Modern Warfare 3 is the most recent among the long range of first-person shooters. This game is also more likely to make a lot of money than any other blockbuster movie-based games. The Cold War – Call of Duty, an earlier version of the game last year, became the biggest selling American game ever.

The series of games have been based on bomb blasts and bullets and the upcoming game is also expected to be a huge paean in the art of computer generated destructions.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Launched as early as 2000, the very first version of Deus Ex is still considered to be one of the greatest games of all times by many gaming extremists and experts. The changes brought about in this game’s revolution saw huge changes starting from a collection of first-person shooters to an array of choices and customizations to create one’s own game-play styles and weapons.

The toughness of the game and its difficulty level can at times test your will power. Human Revolution is a worthy update to the original game and is definitely one that will stay long in your mind.

BioShock: Infinite

An expected first person shooting game, BioShock Infinite is the third game in the BioShock series. It is developed by Irrational Games and is slated for a 2012 release. It will be compatible with the Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Interestingly, this game shows no imitation of its earlier version as it is equipped with different settings of the earlier age.

As the waiting time gets lesser and lesser, speculations and expectations on the game became more and more. Die-hard-fans of the game would have a short wait for a long-time gaming pleasure. With early reviews of the game promising a lot, the game is almost certain to be a huge hit.

Saints Row 3

Saints Row 3, developed by Volition Inc. is a sandbox styled action-packed adventurous game. The game may be released late this year or early next year. It will be compatible with Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. The game will be the third title in the series after the launch of the Saints Row 2 in 2008. In the previous series of the games, the player controls the head of the Third Street Saints. The whole theme revolves around the gang war between the rival criminal group called the Syndicate and the Saints.

BioShock Infinite is arguably one of the best story-based video games in the last 10 years. As always and as in the case of most of the games, Saints Row 3 would be easier to play on knowing the theme, the story behind the theme and the best way to play them.

As all of the above games are a big hit in the past, there is hardly any doubt about their success in the future. Either way, it’s going to be a breathtaking year for the gamers around. As former player and American Football coach, Jim Coule quotes, “Love is all fun and games until someone loses an eye or gets pregnant“.

    What is this? Half-Life 2 Episode 3 has not even had a release date announced, and so even if it is the most anticipated game, your wording implies that it is coming out in 2012, which is NOT true. Also, Deus Ex: Human Revolution has already been released! Go buy it!
