Analog Addiction Writes: "This is a very long Roundtable article where each of the editors here at Analog Addiction write about what their personal Game of the Year is. 2012 has been an eventful year to say the least with the demise of companies like THQ. Disney buying Lucasfilm for a cool £4.05 billion, new Star Wars anyone?
To say it’s been the best year for games it’s too early to say but it has given gamers across the world some truly memorable experiences. It also sums up the state of gaming when there are indie titles or PSN and XBLA games going toe to toe with AAA titles for the Game of the Year award. This is both good for the industry but also bad as it shows that the videogames are following a similar model to that of the movie industry with middle tier games being crowded out. This is a shame as this tier has brought some of this year’s surprise hits like Sleeping Dogs and Kingdoms of Amalur."
