The Inaugural Game Of The Year Award Nominations Thread For The Year 2012


Recommended Posts

The Edited Best Video Games of 2012 Thread! yaaay!

Ah, EWB, my old friend. The year has come and gone, so let us all unite in disagreement about the best of vidja games in 2012.

But first of all. Nomination time!

From what I've gleaned about you folk and your gaming habits, some of you play a lot of games and some of you don't. With that in mind, don't feel you need to fill the list, just put as many (up to 10) as you wish to. Scoring will be fairly standard: 1st place will get 30 points, 2nd = 20, 3rd = 10, 4th = 7, 5th = 6, 6th = 5, 7th = 4, 8th = 3, 9th = 2, 10th = 1. I'll close nominations sometime in January (whenever this thread dies basically).

As a side note, you are all the most disappointing game of 2012. (Except you GoGo. You're my 11th best game this year)

And with that out of the way. The category.

My top 10 games of 2012.

10. Black Ops 2
9. Torchlight 2
8. Hotline Miami
7. Sleeping Dogs
6. Pinball Arcade
5. Binary Domain
4. FTL: Faster than Light
3. Pokemon Black 2

2. XCOM: Enemy Unknown
1. Walking Dead

I actually like this format, it's just going to take more time to think through. Maybe if you narrowed it down to Best Game, Best Character, Biggest Letdown so I too can shame AC3 (while at the same time still giving Haytham Kenway his props).

#1, all categories: The Walking Dead

It was your #1 letdown when your computer wouldn't let you play it. :shifty:

>_> I wound up having to play it on my brother's PC. But definitely worth it.
