10 Can't Miss Video Games Coming in the Summer of 2012

If there’s anything an experienced gamer fears, it’s the possibility of a much-hyped game being a disappointment. After all, video gamers make more than an investment of their money into these highly-hyped games; there’s also the investment of waiting time and even excitement to consider. Plus, being smart with your video game budget and purchasing only the sure-fire successes is a great way to keep costs down.

So which video games are coming out this July that can’t miss? Let’s take a look at ten top examples that we think are the best contenders for having that sure-to-be-good quality you’re looking for.

1. The Amazing Spider-Man

Although you can make the argument that the movie isn’t a guaranteed solid flick, you can’t say the same for the video game. Yes, many video games based on movies tend to be hit or miss, but considering the amount of experience designers have with the Spiderman series now, they should have it down to a science.

2. Of Orcs and Men

Maybe it’s our bias toward anything Orc these days, but this title looks like it will at the very least tug at the imagination. There’s something to be said for fantasy games that somehow reference John Steinbeck.

3. Hybrid

Of course, we can’t get through this list without a solid shooter or two, and Hybrid promises to be an intriguing entry into the genre.

4.  NCAA Football 2013

Yes, we’re basically cheating by including perhaps the most surefire yearly franchise in all of the video game kingdom. But you still deserve to know this will definitely be a fun game.

5. Ice Age: Continental Drift

This video game aims at a younger crowd, and needless to say these folks tend to be slightly less cynical and easy to please. That makes for a more surefire success.

6. Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends

Whenever you have another entry into a racing series, you kind of know what to expect. But for this kind of list, that can be a good thing. It certainly is for racing fans.

7. Damage Inc. Pacific Squadron WW2

Really, it’s hard to deny that World War II games have a consistently high level of both intrigue and adventure. Why should this title be any different?

8. Madden NFL 2013

Despite what the fans say, Madden NFL is a series that is more hit or miss than many people think. Even so, this year’s title promises to update the franchise in some intriguing ways.

9.  Tiger Woods: PGA Tour 2013

Of course, while we’re on the subject of sports franchises that produce consistent results, we can’t forget about the best golf title, slated for release this summer.

10. American Mensa Academy

Yes, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea: intellectual challenge. But if that’s the kind of tea you like, we can’t imagine you’ll be disappointed by the mental stimulation offered here.
