4. Paper Mario: Sticker Star
We love some Paper Mario here at Operation Rainfall, so much so that we’re placing the latest entry, Sticker Star, in our No. 4 spot. After the side-scrolling, platforming adventures of Super Paper Mario on the Wii, it’s great to see the series return to its RPG roots for its 3DS debut. Combining the hilarious writing and addictive gameplay that we all know and love, as well as the all new mechanic of using stickers to aid you in your quest, this is one 3DS title to keep your eye on.

3. The Last Story
Well we can’t have a Top 10 without one of the Operation Rainfall 3 making an appearance, can we? Believe it or not, the North American version of The Last Story was playable on the show floor at E3 2012, so it’s with great honour that we can award it with our No. 3 spot. Yes, the Hironobu Sakaguchi epic is almost in your hands — unless you’re European, Australian, or Japanese, then you’ve been playing it for quite some time — but soon it will be our American friends’ turn to enter the world of The Last Story.
2. Pikmin 3
Pikmin 3 was announced for the Wii back in 2008. It was still confirmed to be in development in 2009 and 2010. In 2011 it was announced that it would now be a Wii U title. Through no fault of our own, the hype for this game became unimaginable. Is there any wonder why? Having to wait 5 years to get a first glimpse of a game must surely be a world record (unless you count Duke Nukem Forever). But not only did we get a glimpse, we got a gorgeous new Pikmin game as well. With HD graphics, 4 playable characters, and new breeds of Pikmin, it was everything we expected and more.
But what game could possibly have toppled Pikmin 3 and made it as our No 1 game of E3 2012?
