Game of the Year 2012 - Console Awards
Our picks for the best on each console in 2012.
It’s pretty tough to own every console out there these days. Luckily for the average consumer, there are a lot of the same games available on PS3, Xbox 360, and now even Wii U. Each of these pieces of hardware also has its own unique set of releases; some of them are exclusive and others just feel like they belong to one console more than the others. Then there are the portable systems that offer distinctive experiences from each other in almost every game available. So, whether you feel inclined to take sides in the “Console War” or are happy to just play great games on great systems, we’ve picked the best experiences from 2012 on each platform.
Some of these choices were pretty difficult, with a steady flow of quality titles on PS3, 360, and the 3DS all year long. Other platforms had a much smaller field of competition since the Vita and Wii U are still essentially in their launch periods and the Wii is on the way out. Regardless of how many games there were on each system, we certainly feel like our selections are the best bets for each and you should make sure you give them each a shot.
Make sure you check back tomorrow for our final day of awards where we reveal our overall winners.
