So here we are, this is the end, my beautiful friends…Ignoring that bit of reference from The Doors, this is the final award that we have to give out this year. It’s for the game that blew us away, that stole hours upon hours from our life, and gave back phenomenal gameplay and fun in return. And the Lazygamer game of the year 2012 award goes to…

Borderlands 2

Never before, have we managed to play a single game that the entire crew loved unconditionally. The loot and shoot sequel improved massively on the original game, from pacing, focus and characters, through to addictive gun collecting and character building.

And it did all that, in one massive experience that kept us hooked all the way through. I’m not joking, as a look at my stats reveals that I have literally sank three days worth of gaming into this title. And I’m not the only one.

So well done Borderlands 2 and Gearbox Software, you’ve given us a game that delivered on its promises, made us hate stairs and gave us one of the best villains of all time. And a butt stallion of course.

Honourable mentions

  • Far Cry 3
  • Halo 4
  • Mass Effect 3
  • Call of Duty Black Ops 2
Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.
