We might be hours away from announcing OUR Game of the Year for 2012, but we’re not ready to call it a day just yet. After all, every one of you dear readers was given the chance to cast your vote for some of 2012’s finest. With ten of the best to choose from, we were more than interested to see just what you all thought should be in the top spot.
Just in case you’ve forgotten, your list consisted of:
- Borderlands 2
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
- The Walking Dead
- Mass Effect 3
- Hotline Miami
- Halo 4
- Far Cry 3
- Assassin’s Creed III
There was a lot of stiff competition, so what did you guys decide upon?
Well, I’m happy to announce that the Dusty Cartridge Reader’s Choice Award for 2012 goes to…
Yes, the majority of you guys out there decided that Gearbox Software’s stylish, funny and incredibly enjoyable shooter – Borderlands 2 – was most deserving of this year’s honour. It’s rare that a sequel improves upon the original’s foundations in nearly every way, but Borderlands 2 achieved such a feat.
With a villain you love to hate, some of the best co-op gameplay, a crapload of weapons to test out around and a constant stream of solid DLC packs – it’s a title more than worthy of the crown.
A big congratulations to Gearbox Software on the win as well as all the other nominees. As for all those who nominated; all of us at Dusty Cartridge want to thank you for your support and look forward to finding out what game you love most next year!
