Amazon’s Best Game of 2012 is Journey

Amazon has now rated their top 20 games of 2012, with the Journey Collector’s Edition finishing on top. (Journey, Journey Collector's Edition, PS3)

Good show to Amazon for picking a game that is actually good, rather than one that sells well and makes them $$$

It's also nice to see three Vita titles up there, with two being exclusive to the system. Journey is a beautiful title and deserves to be up there with the reviews and reception the title has received since launch.

I think I'd put It at the top of my list this year. This year has been a bit hit and miss for gaming, especially for the big hitters like Max Payne, Mass Effect 3 and RE6 falling short of people's expectations.

Next year looks a hell of a lot better though.

What a beautiful game. CAPTIVATING!

The chapter while you slide down the hill of sands while the sun shining beautifully on the camera is simply jaw dropping.

Honestly, no other games come close to Journey this year for my part. 2012 was not as great as I thought it would be.2013 look to be different tho.

Well deserved. I always say, "What Journey does in 3 hours, other games can't or struggle to do in 20+." My game of the year.

Journey was such a fantastic game. It is my personal Game of the Year. I enjoyed playing it. I've played it about five times now.

When people gonna ask the question of how was 2012 in terms of gaming you just say it had journey the end.

I can't believe VGA's grew a brain this year and nominated Journey over CoD.

Journey was fantastic. I'll never forget my first playthrough. Made it through the entire thing with one person, we never lost each other, it was such an amazing experience.

Well deserved top spot.

One of the best games of all time. And that collector's edition includes Flower, too. Amazing.
WeAreLegion  +   890d ago
Definitely in my top five of the year. Gravity Rush was my game of the year, however. Followed by LittleBigPlanet Vita and Borderlands 2.

Not surprised!
baodeus  +   890d ago
beside the breathtaking art style, the game is amazing due to its underline philosophy aspect (scarf knitting/strange companion). Well deserve indeed.

I rather play award winning titles not sales figures.

I get a great game play experiences unlike sales figures what do I get .... nothing

Pretty insulting choice when you consider masterpieces like Halo 4, Dishonoured, Mass Effect 3, Binary Domain and New Super Mario Bros U came out over the past year, but then Amazon is hardly a bastion of credible gaming opinion.
Daver  +   889d ago
insulting? why's that? because it offers what no other games you have listed, a different, refreshing and beautifully made experience?
from the beach  +   889d ago
Insulting because it clearly has nothing of the scope, depth and quality of those games, and I'm sure the teams that made them are left scratching their heads as to why their mammoth efforts are being overlooked in favour of this no-action snooze fest.
yog-sothot  +   889d ago
They have a very decent list. Well, at least, I like many of the games in heir top 20
