Welcome to KittyGotWet Gaming Awards 2012. 2011 was a huge year. Not so much this year for the PS3, but the highlight for me was the release of PlayStation Vita.
Game of the Year: Rainbow Moon (PSN)
This game took me completely by surprise. It’s a 100+ hour platinum and I got this while being in a trophy competition so I planned to not play this as much as it would ruin the competition. I couldn’t. I played this game almost non-stop until I got the Plat and continued on afterwards. I haven’t played much games like this one, but there was something that just felt right with Rainbow Moon. I’m already looking forward to playing this again when it releases on PS Vita.
Best Multiplatform Game: Far Cry 3 (PS3)
Beautiful game world, great game play, when you’re not hunting pirates you can hunt animals. It has elements from Red Dead Redemption, but I like it even more here, as hunting animals are really useful in this game. The story is a bit cliche, but it is the game play and the game world that combines this into the best multiplatform game in 2012.
Best Handheld Game: Uncharted: Golden Abyss
Golden Abyss was great. It was Uncharted on handheld, and it also had some features that took advantage of the features of the Vita in a good way, with a few exceptions. I have completed this game 4 times already, which isn’t something I can say about a lot of games.
Most Anticipated Game of 2013: The Last of Us (PS3)
Naughty Dog is hands down my favorite developer. I remember when this game was teased a week before the reveal, I was a little bit interested. As soon as I saw the Naughty Dog logo, I knew this would be great. Everything since has just strengthened this feeling. I’m taking days off work when this releases. It’s going to be great.
