As voted by you!
Through the month of November, we asked for you to vote for your favourite games of the year. You did (and in incredible numbers – thank you for that), and now it’s time to announce the finalists and the winners. Each day we’ll be revealing a new category.
How it works
The five games you’ll see below are the top five games for each category based on the reader’s votes. They are listed in no particular order. The final game is the winner.
If there are six games listed, then there was a tie for the 5th finalist in that category.
We’d love to hear what you think about each category, so please do let us know your thoughts in the comments!
Journey – It makes me so happy to see Journey take out this award. It’s proof that there are gamers out there that care more about hyper-real visuals, and can look beyond bloodletting. Journey is a breathtaking game and every bit the deserving winner of its accolades.
Journey might not feature hyper-real visuals, but it does feature one of the best art styles you’ll ever see. It’s over in just a couple of hours, but it’s an emotional few hours that will never be forgotten.
And it’s a remarkably simple game, but that’s why it’s so brilliant – this is an elegant and intelligent game that must be played by everyone.
Nice choices I think. There really were not that many great video games released last year, eh?
I dunno. I had a good year, especially with the PS3. Lots and lots of JRPGs will do that for me. NISA had an especially good year.
