I quietly created a basic poll the other day which auto-posted and which I totally forgot to put a formal announcement for. I also wanted to kinda make up a community award …and I have named it simply Best Games of 2012. For, you know …2012.

So …what are the best games of 2012 in your opinion? The poll is on the sidebar on the right, at the very top and will run through the end of 2012.

CAST YOUR VOTE HERE!

Don’t worry about strict dates, so long as you bought it during and after 2011, it’s fair game! We can’t decide for everyone what the best game in 2012 was, but as a community we can throw our 2 cents into the pot. I put a small starter list on the poll just to jog some memories, but you can enter the name of your favorite game by clicking the option named “Other” and filling in the blank.

Also, the last poll was about your favorite WoW raid dungeon. At least in the Red Skies community, the overwhelming majority of players enjoyed Ulduar  best of all of WoW, from vanilla to Cataclysm with Karazhan a very close second choice. I don’t have Mists of Pandaria, so I’m not likely to put up a poll for it …but one of you surely can! Here’s the recap from that poll, which ran for a month:

favorite wow raids For each raid, the number one boss you voted for was:

  • World Raids: Kazzak and Gruul were tied!
  • Molten Core: Ragnaro, with Major Domo just 1 vote away from a tie!
  • Blackwing Lair: Vaelestraz the Corrupt
  • Zul’Gurub: Jin’do the Hexxer
  • Ruin’s of AQ: General Rajaxx
  • Temple of AQ: Sartura and C’thun tied!
  • Naxx 1.0: Patchwerk, Heign, 4 Horsemen, and Kel’thuzad tied!
  • Karazhan: Shade of Aran
  • Zul’Aman: Hex Lord Malakras
  • Serpentshrine Cavern: Leotheras the Blind and Lady Vashj tied!
  • Tempest Keep: Kael’thas Sunstrider
  • Black Temple: Reliquary of Souls and Illidan tied!
  • Sunwell: Kalecgos
  • Naxx 3.0: Saphiron and Thaddius tied!
  • Ulduar: Yogg-Saron
  • Icecrown Citadel: The Lich King
  • Blackwing Decent: Nefarian and Atramedes tied!
  • Bastion of Twilight: Chog’all
  • Throne of the 4 Winds: Council of the Frou Winds and Al’Akir tied!
  • Firelands: Alysrazor and Heroic Ragnaros tied!

As you can see, LOTS of ties, which is good. It shows a good range of player choice, though in some cases the players in this community clearly preferred some rather popular encounters. This was a really interesting poll to watch as the numbers rolled in and I’ll definitely try to host another large poll like this one in the future.

Thanks for participating! In the meantime, go cast another vote on the new poll for the Best Games of 2012!

    But- I can’t cast judgement upon Darkfall:UW yet, and it is a 2012 release!

    Oh, and how quaint that Karazhan lovers would choose Aran as the best fight. I think I prefer the theatre myself; always the expectation and excitement, and the setting did a lot to set a humorous mood.

      You gotta admit that Aran was definitely one of the best fights :) I’m not sure which was my personal favorite, but I have to agree that the theatre comes to mind. I still remember the first time me and my friends did Big Bad Wolf. We were in tears on ventrillo, laughing at “run away little girl ….”. It was awesome and fun as hell!
