Game of the Year Awards 2012

You’ve seen the big boys give out their awards now see the little guys do it. If you have no idea what Game of the Year  is, consider it the Oscar’s but for Video Games. We met for over 20 hours to hand out award winners for over 50 different categories. Stay tuned as we count down to Christmas with our awards leading to the big reveal on Christmas day. We picked what we feel are the best candidates for these categories and we hope you enjoy our picks or enjoy flaming us. I guess. This all leads to next month and every staff member’s top ten games of 2012. It’s a fun time for all of us here as we get to celebrate an industry we love.
