We’re almost at the end of our awards! Today we’re announcing the results of 2012’s best PC game of the year vote!
And the reader voted winner is…
Far Cry 3: 12.78%
Unlike yesterday, which featured the closest vote I’ve ever seen since we started doing these awards, this one was also pretty close, particularly between the top two games. Still, it’s a pretty incredible considering the fact Far Cry 3 was released pretty late in the day for these awards.
Borderlands 2: 11.97%
The Walking Dead
This one was tough for me. Quite honestly, I didn’t play that many games on PC this year. I thought about using the PC release of Dark Souls as an excuse to make that my PC game of the year but, considering I played the game on PS3, that would have been more than a little dishonest! The game I enjoyed most on PC this year was The Walking Dead. It suited my needs. It was a game I felt comfortable playing on a laptop in bed, almost like reading a book. It was a different experience. A throwback to the adventure genre I used to love, but also a fresh interesting way to tell a genuinely well written story.
