Community Game of the Year 2012 – TheSixthAxis

Community Game of the Year 2012

This year, we opened up our Game of the Year voting to our community members. Some of the results are quite unexpected but what isn’t unexpected is the range of games which got a mention. Allowing voters to fill in their own choice if it didn’t appear on our shortlist meant that we saw a huge variation in the types of games that were voted for.

This diversity demonstrates what a varied bunch we are here at TSA but it also demonstrates something else: what unbelievable choice we have in our videogames in 2012. Obviously, the big names rise to the top in polls like this but there were many slightly less expected names that cropped up which we’ll take a look at in an upcoming feature.

So, 2012 was a varied year for videogames which saw some real quality across many genres and also threw up some unexpected gems. Sure, many of us like to have an occasional moan about the number of sequels and the lack of innovative new IP but we probably have more choice and quality than ever before.

Without further ado, here are your winners for Game of the Year 2012.

  1. just bought TWD since a friend is in love with it! and he recommended it =)

    can’t wait for the games in 2013! woo! bring it baby! =D

  2. Uncharted and LBP Vita me. I thought there were a lot of over hyped games this year (Journey being one of them) but those two both delivered despite massive expectation and in the first year of a consoles life cycle.

    Disappointed AC II beat Liberation as Liberation is by far the better game.

    I doubt most people have played more than half the games in top 5s let alone all the ones you could vote for.

  3. Surprised not to see FTL in either strategy or music category.
