Editor’s Note: We recently asked you, our community to vote for your Games of the Year across a variety of categories, and following all of your votes it’s time for the results. Enjoy.
It’s that time. We’ve sifted through hundreds of games to narrow down ten nominations for Game of the Year, then you, our community, have cast your votes to declare your Game of the Year. 12 months ago it was Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception that took the top prize – alongside two other awards. This year we have some of the best action-adventure games of the year, as well as the best shooters, the best looking games of the year, best sounding, best RPG and more. It’s an exceptional line-up but there can only be one winner.
The Nominees were:
The winner is Journey!
In taking the Game of the Year award with 27.69% Journey has cemented itself in the record books by taking a staggering five awards this year. Alongside being the best game of 2012, it took the awards for Best Downloadable, Best PlayStation, Best Visual Appearance and Best Audio Experience. It pipped the Best Action-Adventure game of the year, The Walking Dead, to the crown (16.53%).
Journey is well deserving of its acclaim. It was the only title released in 2012 that was awarded an ‘A+’ by us and, for me personally, it’s up there among the greatest of all time. There’s little more to say about a game we’ve spoken about four time already other than congratulations to thatgamecompany and Sony for creating a masterpiece.
