OXCGN’s Game of the Year Awards for 2012

OXCGN:

"However the quality of this year’s titles shows that gaming is very much alive and though many studios and franchises faltered this year, more succeeded with some of the best games this gaming generation.

With a huge renaissance gaming year promised for 2013 in the form of new generation consoles, let’s look at 2012 as the last big battle of this current console generation for top gaming honours.

We gave our readers a chance in a poll to decide their 2012 Game of the Year, and the results came in with the beautiful and clever Playstation exclusive downloadable title, Journey. Now it’s our turn." (3DS, Far Cry 3, Halo 4, Journey, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

It was so much fun contributing to this. It was anybody's guess this year, very exciting stuff. Both GOTYs that I contributed to this year had different results. Amazing!
gaminoz  +   731d ago
It's nice to see some variety in choices for the different GOTY categories.

I've seen Journey win some, Halo 4 others, Far Cry 3, The Walking Dead...

Most seem to agree that the worst game of the year is the Vita COD Black Ops game though.

halo4 won GOTY award ?!
can i see link ?!
gaminoz  +   731d ago
Sorry, I meant GOTY categories. Halo 4 won some at IGN like best graphics and here it won best multiplayer and shooter.

Sure did. What, did you think spike is the only award show that counts. Nope...

Plus Halo 4 won best graphics from the Spike awards.

The game that killed the Vita :(
BadCircuit  +   731d ago
I wouldn't say 'killed' the Vita, as AC3: Liberation is pretty amazing, but it really is sad that Activision just threw out a sub-par game to capitalise on the COD name.
gaminoz  +   731d ago
Glad to see a new IP like Dishonored do so well!
BadCircuit  +   731d ago
AC 3 and COD BLOPs2 barely get a mention, while Dishonored and Journey do pretty well.

RE6 not even nominated for the "Big Name, Big Shame" or "The Golden Turd" awards? I sense bias.
DO A RECOUNT!!
BadCircuit  +   731d ago
There seemed to be a lot of mixed opinion on that game. Some really seemed to like it. I haven't played it yet myself, but I agree that the others there deserved it.

Was RE6 really that bad?

I... Don't really know. I just got a few days ago, and I've just finished Leon's campaign yesterday.

From that short amount of time, I've already got a few complaints. Navigating the weapons/item selection is cumbersome, cutscene to gameplay transition is rough and choppy, guns selection is "meh" and you can't tell how powerful each one is, camera can get really annoying at times, frame rate drops, and constant throwing of boobs right at your face. Ada? Naked, can see boobs, but not nipples. A boss? Naked, boobs dangling out, can see tits. There's an enemy called LepoTITSa? Bajillion boobs with nipples all over its body.
Mind you, this is with just Leon's campaign. I have yet to do Chris', Jake's, or Ada's campaign yet. I swear, playing Leon's campaign, I thought Capcom just wanted to shove tits in front of you every moment they could so you wouldn't notice the terrible game that it is.

I never even played RE 6.

Lost the interest in the series after playing RE5.

I loved what the originals were all about, not being converted into another action shooter.
Enemy  +   731d ago
They should have taken the best idea they had, Jake, scrapped everything else, and given him his own story. Everything else in the game was so horribly executed that I'll have to agree with you on at least nominating it for golden turd of the year.

@ BadCircuit: I try not to bash RE too much, I love the franchise, but it's become clear that the fans care more about it than Capcom do.

There are so many mistakes in this list that it makes it close to ridiculous.

Best writing? It would be TWD, ME3 is a joke. Best SP and MP game and not even a mention to Journey? Best Game Atmosphere and no Journey or The Unfinished Swan? Best XBL/PSN game and no TWD? Starhawk as best PS3 exclusive? AC Liberation better than Gravity Rush or Soundshapes?

get your shit together, it seems you didnt played half the games you've put on that list.
Proeliator  +   731d ago
If you actually read the article, you would see that the awards were decided based on staff votes, not any single person's opinion.

Their shit is together, you should get yours instead.
gaminoz  +   731d ago
I don't think any awards list will match up exactly to any one person's opinion. It's an overall thing with a group choice.

Some poeple are over zombies too you know. The Walking Dead isn't going to be what everyone wants.

I agree with most... Of course I would vote all for Journey.

Nice, Ass Creeds Liberation :D
Riderz1337  +   730d ago
Surprised Far Cry 3 didn't win best shooter.

Edit - Also surprised Starhawk won over Journey for best PS3 game...
