Everybody loves them some action, just last night we were watching The Expendables 2 and I loved the crap out of every badly written line of it. The same thing applies to action games, we don’t care about the story, we just care about the ass kicking! However, we are fortunate to have gotten some great action games this year, most of which had an amazing story and/or art direction. The best out of all of them just happened to be…

Sleeping Dogs

The dark and dangerous world of undercover cops and shady pork buns in Hong Kong has stolen our hearts with its stunning visuals and awesome combat system. Sleeping Dogs has all the head smashing, bone breaking and adrenaline an action junkie could want.

With its combat based on martial arts, it’s the ideal game to go all Bruce Lee on everybody’s ass. The game was a perfect balance of story, gameplay and visuals, making it the best action game of the year.

Honourable mentions:

  • Darksiders 2
  • Dishonored
  • Assassin’s Creed III
  • Hitman: Absolution
I like bacon and games, and occasionally I say something coherent about it. I'm not old or cynical, and I'm not the Dork Knight. I AM SHE-RA! Wait, what?
