Well Happy for Dishonored - awesome game!

I was pleased to see my choice won best RPG  and although it isn't to some gamers' tastes, the coop 4 player has kept me amused and away from my other games for ages .

Thats the thing, as someone who had their Borderlands 2 experience ruined by the bugs and issues, the online of it is just co-op....nothing more, hardly MP in any way

So Co-Op of a game won the bet MP for 2012, doesnt say much about MP this year

Halo4 best xbox 360 game??????  WTF!!!!

[/quote]

What do you think should have won? 

[/quote] Now thats a good question. I cant answer that as i have not been buying many games this year, i just found it strange that halo 4 got it, when theres been some other good titles out.

I'd say it's been the best mate... Graphics that look like it's on a new console, brilliant voice acting, great story, co-op content added on a weekly basis, best multiplayer since Rainbow Six (for me anyway).... can't really fault it.

 

4 games have wowed me this year, Halo 4, Assassins Creed 3,Walking Dead and Far Cry 3.... Forced to pick one, it'd be Halo 4 I reckon.

 

EDIT: borderlands 2 was/is great fun, but it's essentially nothing new over the first one..... Dragons Dogma was/is awesome too btw, should probably incude that with the 4 games above.

I haven't played Borderland 2 yet, but I will get it.  What issues and bugs did it have?  Are they patched now?

Despite the issues some had/having with Borderlands 2 I'm glad it won "Best Multi-Player Game" .. For me playing it through on co-op was just so much fun.

 

I was a little bit suprised ( Not that I thought either game deserved the title ) not to see either Halo 4 or Black Ops 2 win this though.

I believe it deserves the Game of the Year awards for the story but that does not forgive it the flaws that continue to affect the game.

-

I only hope the reason they have not been fixed is that Telltale are working to eliminate them from the disc based release and then patch the download version/

Ah well, I loved my experience with the game, it deserves all the accolades its getting now

40k.. what a urine take :D

No wonder this gen has been so broken.
