    Default 2012 DS/3DS Game of the Year

    It's been a big year for the 3DS and the DS even had a couple of good games, thanks to Pokémon. What was your favorite?

    Of the ones I've played (Uprising, Mario Tennis Open, NSMB 2, Sticker Star & B2W2), I'd have to say B2W2. Really great sequels to BW, with tons of content.

    Of the ones I've played (B2W2, Miracle Mask, Sticker Star, NSMB2), I can't decide between B2W2 and Miracle Mask. The former had tons of various content, including really cool new features like Join Avenue and PokeStar Studios, as well as more of a variety in Pokemon and no roaming legendaries for once, but the plot was three steps backwards from BW; the latter, on the other hand, had a great plot, funny dialogue, and fun puzzles (not to mention, you can get daily ones for free), but was pretty short, and the plot has a few plot holes you can spot in a second walkthrough, though it's not quite as bad as the previous titles.

    I think I'll go with Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. and besides no one else is going to vote for it so

    Black and White 2. It's incredible with all the features.

    Being a hardcore Pokemon fan, I'd say conquest comes 2nd.

    Definitely Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 with all of it's new features. Pokemon Conquest comes at a close second. It's quite different from the usual Pokemon game.

    Conquest. Easily one of the best games ever released on the DS, and probably better than just about any 3DS game out right now.

    Kid Icarus: Uprising.

    Because I'm not blinded by Pokemon fanboyism in regards to this.

    Those are all pretty good games, but I really think B/W 2 deserves it with all the content, features, and being a great sequel.

    I've only played Black 2 and White 2. So, I guess those are the only ones I can vote for.

    It has amazing features and the new added places are great as well.

    Ports are generally ineligible for GOTY status.

    I think Super Mario 3D Land deserved its place on the list far more than New Super Mario Bros. 2, but there you go.

    I suppose...... Black 2 and White 2. But this wasn't exactly a dynamite year for the handheld gaming market, to be totally honest.

    Pokemon B/W2 for DS. The best pokemon games so far.

    Kid Icarus Uprising for 3DS. That game is great and I wanted a new Kid Icarus game for a long time. It's still pretty fun to play now and then even though I've beaten it a few times.

    I would say Tales of the Abyss as well, but it is a port, no matter how you spin it.

    I'm torn between Resident Evil: Revelations and Kid Icarus: Uprising, but of the two, I've put more time into Uprising, so I'll vote for that.

    Clearly you don't, or else you wouldn't like it. It's got damn good music, and that's about it.

    I have to agree with this, really. It's fun at the beginning, then it gets pretty boring later on. I don't have the willpower to carry on after two worlds.

    Kid Icarus: Uprising is a masterpiece.

    Even though I did enjoy White 2, my other choice had very charming new features.

    I have to go with KH3D. Despite it being a bit short, they did have a good reason in the story for it, plus there were a couple scenes that almost made me cry. That sorta sets it in for me.

    Kid Icarus: Uprising without a doubt. Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 are nice, I'd say better than Black and White but not better than Kid Icarus. However I don't like that DS games get lumped in with 3DS games anyway, why not just have separate categories?

    Just like my Wii & Wii U GOTY Thread, I felt like there weren't enough games for 4 separate catagories.

    You could just limit it to 3DS anyway; there's more than enough games on that for a good GOTY poll, and the Pokemon games (which are the only new releases playable on a DS), have no business being on a GOTY poll, in all honesty.

    That's not true in the slightest. They are games. They are good games. Really good games. By what objective definition are they ineligible for what is ostensibly a "game of the year" poll?

    I don't see why B2W2 & Conquest shouldn't be in the poll. I would've limited it to just 3DS, but we got 2 notable DS games this year (probably going to be the last year for notable DS games).

    "most important and entertaining games" (1UP's description)
    "one and only one game that stood out above all the rest as being the most enjoyable, most impressive, most memorable, and overall best experience of the year" (Gamespot's description)
    "pinpoints what we think was best in gaming for the year and where we hope developers will strive to improve their games over the following years" (Kotaku's description)
    "pinnacle of gaming achievement that year" (Wikipedia's description)

    Who outside of the Pokemon fanbase will remember BW2 as a pinnacle of the 3DS in 2012, an impressive, memorable title that blows everything else out of the water, something for handheld developers to aspire to?

    Pokemon doesn't blow people away like it used to. Most of what BW2 includes has been done in some regard.
