It’s that time of year again, where as it comes to a close we want to know what you the players found to be the arcade Game Of The Year for 2012. There was an increase in “videmption” type content this year, where it all can be set to work without dispensing tickets so I have included those as well. A second poll is about pinball, where this is the first year we can poll on pins from two different companies so that should be exciting. I won’t yet say what my favorite game of there year is until the poll is closed, which will be two weeks from now on January 6th. For those curious, the winner last year was PentaVision Global’s DJ Max Tecknika 3, followed by Raw Thrills’ Dirty Drivin’ and Taito’s Dariusburst Another Chronicle, which you can see here. TRON took home the gold for pinball. Unfortunately for our little joke earlier this year, Firefly Arcade, that is not included since it doesn’t exist. 😀
For the most part the polls include Western releases but as there are a couple of international versions out there of a couple of games, namely Maximum Tune 4 and MaiMai and some of our readers have access to those as well, I figure they can be included.
One thing different this year is that you can select up to THREE titles on the video game poll. On the pinball since the selection is much smaller that is still only set to one. It will not allow you to vote on the same game three times, it will be three separate titles so it still should allow one game to come out on top at the end of the poll but allow a little more flexibility where there are so many games to choose from.
