Nielsen: Halo 4, Black Ops 2 most anticipated titles

According to a survey conducted by consumer report site Nielsen, Halo 4 and Black Ops 2 are gamers' most anticipated titles for 2012. Throughout the month of June, Nielsen contacted over 4,800 gamers, both male and female, asking them to list their most anticipated titles. The data was then compiled into a list of fifteen and has now been published for all eyes to see. 

Nielsen began their data around this year's E3 in Los Angeles so that the company could incorporate every title announced at the expo, along with any titles release shortly thereafter. Consumers who participated in the survey owned at least one console from this generation, and was between the ages of 7 and 54. 

As we alluded to, Halo 4 took home the top spot with 99% of gamers most anticipating 343's upcoming shooter. Not far behind stood Black Ops 2 with 97% of folks' most anticipated title. Rounding out the top five was none other than Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed 3, EA's Madden NFL 13, and Capcom's Resident Evil 6. 

Others notables who made the top fifteen were: Borderlands 2 (88%), Darksiders 2 (76%), and Microsoft's upcoming exclusive, Fable: The Journey (77%). Several sports, other than Madden, graced the survey, which can be see in full by clicking here
