    2012 Review Team Game of the Year Awards: Best Technical Game of 2012

    As 2012 comes to a close, the Review Team took a look back at all the great games of 2012 and decided to bring PS3Trophies.com our selection for:

    Best Technical Game of 2012

    We define a game's technical experience as its overall visual package: Environment and Character design, Graphics, Sound, etc. Each member of the RT voted on a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place game and the results below were based on the results of each members' votes. Eligible titles were released between 12/1/2011 and 12/1/2012.

    This year, we decided to add a "Legacy Vote", which consists of asking previous note-worthy RT members to have a say in these awards, with the purpose of trying to take into account a bigger list of games than those only 6 of us played.

    Come back tomorrow as we will award Best Multiplayer Game of 2012.


    First Place

    Journey

    Quote Originally Posted by Nagflar
    Journey is a game that simply takes your breath away due to how well-made it is. The way the game conveys emotions and tells a story through the sole use of audiovisual material is incredible, and it's all thanks to the amount of work Thatgamecompany put into the game's technical side. Afterall, the game not only looks brilliant, but said brilliant graphics are accompanied by an amazing score that makes this game a true master piece that simply makes your jaw drop in awe.
    Second Place

    Far Cry 3

    Quote Originally Posted by Curb

I wouldn't go as far as saying it's the current benchmark, because that's abjectly not true, but as far as console games go you'd be pretty hard-pressed to find another game of this quality.
    Third Place

    Mass Effect 3

    I got the deal. Its great.
    I started to play Journey on Wednesday night and couldn't put my controller down till it was finished. I was extremely tired and it was way past my usual bedtime. So that tells you it's a great game. Although I played the demo and my impressions were meh. Well done thatgamecompany well deserved.

    everybody is talking about journey and how it is the best game this year i haven't played it yet and as much beautiful and peaceful everyone saying it is i still don't think a PSN game is entitled to be the best game this year we have many other retail games out this year don't tell me than none is as good as journey besides where is dishonored, Spec ops the line and the walking dead just to name a few !!

    For me trophies have become an integral part of gaming, like a stereo in a car. Is it really necessary? No. Is it a lot more fun with it though? Hell yeah!

    Cost and number of trophies don't determine the worthiness of a game. Give Journey a try and you'll understand.

    Those games made our other lists, but they weren't as impressive technically. Cel-shaded and cartoon-esque art styles don't necessarily impress as much as quality in realistic graphics, and the audio may not have been impressive as it was in these titles.




    Current Playthrough Counts:
    Mass Effect: 25 || Mass Effect 2: 44
    Mass Effect 3: 15
    Add me for ME3 multiplayer shenanigans.
    First legit Mass Effect 3 100% on PS3T.


    SERBIA STRONG

    Thanks to Luckay for the ETGWG bar and avy, and Qurb for the sig!

    Here's the retail version, in case you missed it.

    Journey impressed me more than most retail games out there, and the same goes for a lot of people as well. Add the fatc that Dishonored didn't impress me visually nor aesthetically as much, that I never played Spec Ops and that The Walking Dead was just well-done (in other words, it didn't excell on a technical level) and of course I'll choose Journey over all of them all the time.

    I'm also amazed you even mention The Walking Dead, seeing how it was PSN-exclusive for a while, too. Talk about double-standards .

    first of all i knew someone would mention that about the walking dead it WAS a PSN exclusive now it joined the retail games hell it even has it's own CE set anyways back to the point just as curb said i will try it out but lenght of the game does matter, the story mode makes a difference and number of trophies matter well not that much but combine all those things and what u get is game u will never forget it may even touch your feelings and thoughts i of all people know not to judge a game prior to playing it but just think it is way overhyped while other amazing games out there are underrated as fot u nagflar dishonored is a great game i saw my brother playing it and i should start playing it next week once i finish POP just because u didn't like it means it's a bad game and the reason i picked spec ops and walking dead cause those are the two game in my mind atm that have a great story to tell but i am sure there are plenty others out there in the end i am not saying journey is a bad game i'm just saying don't u think guys that it has taken much of ur attention than it should have i will try to get it and try it out myself one day for what it's worth
