One Hit Pixel 2012 Game Of The Year Nominations

By David Howard, Editor-in-Chief and Founder

Here we are again. Almost all, if not all, of the games for 2012 are now out it’s time to take a look back. Cast you mind back over the past 12 months and try to remember what where the stand-out releases. Which games made you feel like you’ve never felt before? Which ones managed to bring a tear to your eye or send shivers down your spine? Where there any that had a smile plastered to your face as you experience something that makes this medium so exciting?

It’s that time to sift through the hundreds of releases of the year to give recognition to the very best. We’ve gone through all of the releases of the year and narrowed it down to a select view nominations – based on a mixture of factors – but now it’s up to you, our community, to vote for your favourite games of 2012.

Now in our third year of our Game of the Year feature, we hope to reach more gamers and garner more votes following our terrific success last year. We want you to vote for which one you think deserves to win that particular category. We have console exclusive, genre based, and a couple of other categories, plus the overall one to crown the almighty game of 2012.

As last year, we have a glistening Game of the Year voting portal for you to select your winners and vote – nice and simple.

Voting closes on Monday December 17, 2012 at 12:00 (GMT), so be sure to get your votes in by then.

Additionally, as an extra incentive, we have a fantastic prize for you to win. Our second Christmas Prize Pack is up for grabs, the contents of which will remain a mystery – though it will contain at least one PlayStation 3 and one Xbox 360 game. Additional Terms & Conditions below. 

You must vote in at least five categories before you can submit your email for entry, but each vote will count as an extra entry; so the more you vote, the better chance you have of winning.

After the closing date, we’ll have a selection of articles to reveal the winners of each category, plus some wise words from the One Hit Pixel team, before capping of the week before Christmas with our very own Staff Game of the Year. We’ll also pick and announce a winner of the Christmas Prize Pack during that week, who will be contacted via the email address submitted.

So what are you waiting for? Get voting!
