GameZone's Game of the Year 2012 Nominations

It's that time of year. The time when we look at all the games of the year, split them up into neat categories and give them esteemed awards. That's right, it's Game of the Year time, and boy was 2012 a good one.

From blockbuster conclusions like Mass Effect 3, and Max Payne 3, to story continuations with Darksiders II, Darkness II and Borderlands 2. We were even treated to some awesome HD remakes of classics like the Metal Gear games, Jak and Daxter and Zone of the Enders. This year also gave birth to many new IPs such as Lollipop Chainsaw, Dishonored, and Journey.

The year 2012 also gave us a brand new console from Nintendo, the Wii U, and finally brought Nintendo into the world of High Definition, and with it some stellar games like Nintendo Land and ZombiU.

We want you to tell us which games deserve to be named the best of the best. So from today until December 21st, you'll have the chance to vote for each category. Starting December 24th, we'll unveil the winners of each category, ending with our Game of the Year award on Friday, the 28th.
