Here it is! It’s here! It has arrived! Yes, it’s finally time for the (far too) long awaited presentation of the ultimate award to be given out on this week of weeks! That’s right–in just a few lines, you yourself will be clicking on the image below and finding out which game will go home with the most prestigious award. Firstly, however, I’d like to take this opportunity to recap on what has been both a marvellous and somewhat bland year for video games.
That brings us to the final award (I mean it this time, I promise) before the ultimate Game of the Year award for 2012. This is the sixth (and final) (and possibly most controversial) Outstanding Game award to be given out to games from 2012. And the award goes to…

The first winner–and fifth overall Outstanding Game winner–is:
To follow is Brendon’s choice for Game of the Year of 2012. Actually, as with Nick it was his second choice, but we all agreed on overall Game of the Year which you will find out very soon. In the meantime, click on the image below to find out to which game did Brendon bestow the honours.

We also took on a number of new writers, Nick and Brendon. This next award is given to Nick’s pick for Game of the Year from 2012 (well, actually, his second pick, as all three of us agreed on the game that will eventually go on to win the top nod). And the winner is…
The fourth Outstanding Game award is upon us! This is another one that might knot some knickers–have a look at the winner of the coveted award by clicking on the image below!
The winner of this third Outstanding Game award might have more than a few of you up in arms, but it’s a game that I thoroughly enjoyed and definitely a game that deserves some sort of recognition. And the winner is…
The Outstanding Game award, for those of you who haven’t clued on, is for those games who we at Select Start Media felt were absolutely amazing, but haven’t yet received an award at our night of nights. Thus, we created this category to give them recognition. The winner of the second Outstanding Game award (in no order) is:
