Yes, it’s that time of year. No doubt you’ve seen many critics announce their picks for 2012′s gaming highlights – but now it’s your turn! Today, we’re pleased to announce the first-ever PlayStation Blog Game of the Year Awards – a chance for PlayStation fans to select the best of the best in PlayStation gaming for 2012.

We’ve put a lot of thought into our first PlayStation Blog Game of the Year Awards, but this is a first step in a much bigger journey. While we’re teaming up with the US PlayStation Blog on this, next year we hope to tackle these awards in an even more global way, expanding them to the Latin America and Asia PlayStation Blog communities too.
Be sure to let us know if you have any bright ideas for next year, whether it’s new categories, an improved voting process or anything else. We’re all ears.
