Pixelitis Picks: 2012 Game(s) of the Year

Last year, the Pixelitis staff said that 2012 had its work cut out for it, as 2011 rocked hard. We knew big games were on the horizon, but no one could have expected some of this year’s top games. Ranging from indie darlings like Fez to major out-of-nowhere blockbuster releases like Dishonored, gamers everywhere were spoiled rotten.

With the year quickly winding down to a close, the entire Pixelitis staff picked its Game of the Year, as well as a runner up. It was the only way we could give proper recognition to some of the best gaming had to offer over the last 12 months.

So enthused were we with the discussion that we got (nearly) everyone together for a special podcast that chronicled the 2012 Game of the Year Spectacular. We’ve included that bit of awesome after the break, along with our written testimony for why our favorite titles deserve to be considered the Game(s) of the Year for 2012.

Oh, and 2013? The ball’s in your court. (Dishonored, Fez, Guild Wars 2, Halo 4, Hotline Miami, Journey, PC, PS3, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, Xbox 360, XCOM: Enemy Unknown)

While most picked different games. Journey was the most picked title. Agreed.
