PixlBit's 2012 Game of the Year Genre Awards

PixlBit | "It was sure tough to follow the fantastic year of gaming we had in 2011, but 2012 did a bang up job of holding its own with plenty of amazing releases and some big industry changes to boot. As the current console generation appears to finally be wrapping up, we welcomed the Wii U on the scene as well as Sony’s newest flashy handheld. Game makers continued to stretch what’s possible from the Xbox 360 and PS3 while the PC seems to be roaring back into prominence thanks to Steam and other download services. Yet, despite some developers’ mastery of the current hardware, not every game released was worth spending your money or time on. The fact that there are plenty of sloppy and poorly made games being pumped out makes the ones that really wow us that much more noteworthy. And there were definitely tons of games to get excited about!" (3DS, FIFA 13, Forza Horizon, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Sleeping Dogs, Street Fighter x Tekken, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xenoblade Chronicles)
