Let’s celebrate this past year and its success and hope for and even better selection of games in 2012. Here are the picks for our Video Game of the Year Awards. (Each category winner was voted upon and chosen by the Gaming Precision staff)
Best PS3 Game
Developer: Naughty Dog
Uncharted 3 has been revered and reviled, lionized and demonized. It is, for some, the pinnacle of execution, most engrossing gaming experience ever, or to quote one underrated critic, a “wowbox of awesome”. For others, it was ‘too linear’. To these people I ask, is it wrong for a game-maker to guide the action and story when their motive is to tell a story well and include totally mind-puttifying action? Drake’s Deception is a story-driven action game. Anyone who’s played it through knows that in their heart-of-hearts they’ve not seen better. I don’t need the freedom of Skyrim, I’ve got Skyrim for that.
