The best games of 2012

What were the greatest Nintendo games of 2012? Vote for your favourite!

What a year 2012 has been. We've had an all-new Nintendo console, three new Mario games, the first ever Pokemon sequels plus the return of an old hero in Kid Icarus: Uprising. All that was missing was a new Zelda game. But what were the best games of the year?

Well, we want you to decide! Team ONM have been discussing the best Wii U, 3DS, DS and Wii games for the ONM Awards and the winners for each category will be announced in issue 91 of Official Nintendo Magazine which goes on sale on 16 January. However, the winner for the most important award will be decided by you. The ultimate game of the year.

You simply have to vote for your favourite game from our carefully picked shortlist (many arguments were had over this) and the winner will be revealed in the mag. Be sure to leave your comments as the best ones will be featured in the mag!

So will it be Kid Icarus: Uprising or Kingdom Hearts? Pokemon Black and White 2 or Project Zero 2? Nintendo Land or New Super Mario Bros U? Take a look at all the nominees and then vote on the final page.

Assassin's Creed 3

You don't need any prior knowledge of the series to enjoy Connor's battles against the British and bears during the American War Of Independence. Smacking a tomahawk down on a dog's head might be a bit much for animal lovers (why do PETA pick on Mario and Pokemon when there are games like this?) but there is arguably no cooler moment in 2012 than leaping between the trees in the vast frontier or running over rooftops in Boston. It's what fans of the series have been enjoying for years and now, thanks to Wii U, we can too. Have a read up on Wikipedia about Desmond's story and then join in on the fun.

Beat The Beat: Rhythm Paradise

 Loading video...

Not may people bought the first Rhythm Paradise game on Wii but those who did probably wouldn't have smiled more when playing a game in 2012. In what other game did you get to blow up an inflatable boxer to jab a punchbag full of screws, or whack golf balls hurled by a mandrill to a distant island? To do this you simply needed to press the A button; we haven't had so much fun doing so little since WarioWare: Smooth Moves.

Fallblox

You may be surprised to learn that some of our best games of 2012 have been released through the 3DS eShop but you shouldn't be shocked by the inclusion of Fallblox. After all, this is the sequel to the best 3DS eShop game of all time: the mighty Pullblox. Rather than just throwing new puzzle blocks at us, Intelligent Systems made things tougher as blocks now fall if they're unsupported and you can now wander all the way around the blocks. We were worried that this would mess with the purity of the original, but completing the puzzles feels more rewarding than ever.

    Pokemon Black And White 2 are worthy for a handheld award. So much things to do once again. It still keeps me coming back for more pokefun. Black & White Kyurem are awsome fusions too!

  2. roz061 Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 14:27

    How long do we have till you count the votes?

  3. imbusydoctorwho Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 14:32

    For me it was between The Last Story and Kid Icarus,but for me The Last Story just edged it for me.

  4. Rio-roller Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 14:40

    surely its got to be zombiU, great storyline, perfect use of the gamepad and a multiplayer mode that beats everything iv played for along time!

  5. Yirba Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 14:49

    Sadly, I don't actually own any of these games, and therefore I'll have to abstain this year. :-(

  6. monsteroushunter Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 15:37

    Kid Icarus for me, superb. I was surprised to find that vlr came second in my list though.

  7. wghtmf Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 16:13

    Sadly, I don't actually own any of these games, and therefore I'll have to abstain this year. :-(


    Ditto. The only ones I have are NSMB2 and Pokémon BW2.

  8. Toastie Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 16:17

    I voted for Pokemon Black 2/White 2, purely because of how much time I've invested into them. The PWT was a really nice touch, and makes up for the lack of Battle Frontier.

    Kid Icarus: Uprising was also great. Once I was used to the controls, it was a blast. Not only was the gameplay fast-paced and exciting, the music and script were brilliant as well.

  9. Commandervideo Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 16:19

    Bit Trip Complete is the best of the year :wink:, but it's not there in the list, neither is Paper Mario:Sticker star? :(

    Suppose I'll go for Kid Icarus then.

  10. 3DSRulesO.K Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 16:19

    Kid Icarus: Uprising all the way! So good to see an old character get a new game, but this is surely the best 'comeback' in gaming history! This game might just be the greatest handheld game I have ever played! Every aspect was completly fresh and new; Storyline is the best in a Nintendo game for me, lots of twists and turns with likeable characters and funny dialouge all leading to an epic finale! Gameplay felt fast and different to any other shooter, the the controls take a while to get used to, but with the stand, the game is precise in aiming and incredibly fun. The multiplayer was exciting, and a supply of endless madness and possibility, especially with clever and silly items (like an eggplant bomb). The weapons are up there with the likes of Borderlands in terms of number and creativity, so many ways to obtain them, so many combinations to fuse them, and you can give and recieve them with streetpass and spotpass. The game is bursting with character, even the menus are fun! The game has amazing replayability, the treasure hunt objectives, multiplayer, collecting weapons, collecting powers (another great addition to the game) and just listening to the brilliant music. The soundtrack of this game should be remembered as one of Nintendo's best! I thought it was a scandal that KI:U won nothing at the Golden Joysticks, but a game doesn't need awards to be perfect, and that's what this game is to me, perfect in every way! :mrgreen:

    I also thought thar Resi: Revelations is the best third-party 3DS game, and certainily the best Resi on handhelds, no question. That game has a lot of replayability too, but my vote is definetly for kid Icarus!

  11. Pyron12 Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 16:33

    Kid Icarus all the way for the 3DS game of the year. Why? Because Sakurai managed to revamp an old series in a new way. It was tongue-in-cheek, chaotic, good storyline and memorable characters and had plenty of variety. But the best thing? The multiplayer and weapons. Multiplayer is the best for the 3DS second only to MK7 because it is so chaotic, fun and random you never know what is going to happen next. The weapons were also greatly designed. You could fuse them, you had multiple classes so there was at least one class that worked for you and you even had weapons based on characters. Then there are the sheer number of powers that can change the game and turn the tables. There is a lot to go on about but I have explained enough. :wink:

  12. faydaway Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 16:34

    Zombiu or VLR hmmmm.....

  13. shy guy 64 Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 16:44

    i would say pokemon black 2 and kingdom hearts 3d

  14. RainbowGazelle Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 16:48

    As much as I loved Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, and Resident Evil: Revelations, my vote has to go to The Last Story. I can't comment on the Wii U games as I don't have a Wii U... yet...

  15. CBTIRL Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 16:48

    Kid Icarus: Uprising is the funniest thing I have ever seen, from the only not boring tutorial to the level with Thantos, and the explanation about the ''h''. It looks amazing, the characters have loads of style, if it wasnt for the dodgy controls this would be my most favouritest game ever

    whereas Zombi U is the scariest thing I have ever seen. You really do feel saddened at the death of each ''Survivor''. When I turn off the game, my hands continue shaking fot half an hour. The GamePad just feels right for Zombi U. You really are looking around you every second, you never know whats around, and I love every minute of it

  16. TheNUKEnukeM Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 16:55

    I helped make the 1% that is Kingdom Hearts 3D. I thought it was an amazing game for a 3DS title. I haven't played a Kingdom Hearts game in ages and It just brought me straight back in to the franchise. And the combat it the best we have ever seen in Kingdom Hearts, with the flowmotion moves. Its remarkable how this game could actually be played on 3DS. Its an amazing title.

  17. CyberGW Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 17:08

    Come on Kid Icarus! Such an amazing game!
    It's now just in the lead, please let it win.
    I have so many happy memories of playing that game. From playing it at GAMEfest 2011, to running home from school in 3 minutes on March 22nd having heard it arrived early and then playing it to death. Laughing at the hilarious dialogue, having so much fun mashing the bosses at the end of each chapter, spending ages forging an awesome pair of Wolf Claws and finally playing online, with my friends, on a team in a tournament, and owning! And not forgetting the excitement of when the cards were released in stores as I dashed to town after school.
    Such a brilliant game which has given me my motto to life:

    "You gotta be upbeat, upbeat, upbeat!
    Or you'll be dead meat, dead meat, dead meat!"

    Good times!

  18. HyrulianToad Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 17:16

    Kid Icarus has a brilliant script , brilliant gameplay , brilliant multiplayer and hours of fun to be had with the story with plenty of replay value. The WiiU's had a brilliant launch but this year I've by far had the most fun with Kid Icarus.

  19. reeesy Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 17:49

    Resident Evil Revelations was my favourite. Taking the series back to its roots was a brave move but it definitely paid off as this is easily my favourite Resi game in years. Looks stunning on the XL too.

  20. mog96 Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 18:04

    Kid icarus, hands down
    This game was perfect in every way, except at the start it took some time in trying to get use of the control, but after that it felt like second nature.This was followed by an amazing story and when you were done with that, there was so much replay value, first the amazing multiplayer combat, then getting weapons and powers, then idols, sound tracks, unlockables… argh! To many things to talk about! Trust Masahiro Sakurai to make a game with so much to do! This game for me in a long time is one of my personal favourites, the sound track is the least appreciated in almost all games, they made the character personalities unique and great. It’s sad to think that I won’t be playing a game like this again :(

  21. skyluigi Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 18:13

    For me it's Paper Mario: Sticker Star, but it's not there so I didn't vote. :(

  22. GuitarHero Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 18:30

    Nintendoland, surprisingly fantastic which caught me by complete surprise. Layton was close, and VVVVVV is also a great game but I don't own it on 3DS.

  23. Nintendalek42 Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 18:49

    I'm voting Kid Icarus, because it was such a charming, huge, awesome, memorable game. But kudos to Rhythm Paradise for making me laugh (a lot), and providing endless silly japanese-level-crazy fun. I'm surprised Paper Mario is not on the list and NSMB 2 is, I'm playing the former at the moment, and although NSMB2 was definitely a good game, the little I've played on Paper Mario has infinitely more charm. I must admit I'm truly puzzled by this selection choice. :mrgreen:
    Seriously though, NSMB2 doesn't deserve a place on the list if Paper Mario isn't on it.

  24. Waldy565 Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 18:55

    For me, it's a toss up between one I have played, and 2 I'm getting for christmas/ new year. Nintendo Land has offered what it set out to achieve, the Wii Sports of WiiU. fantastic "attractions" with LOTS of fan service, the only dissapointment being that star fox and excitebike series could have been included. Next up is Pokemon, one of the first series of games I started playing (after Sonic on my/ my cousins mega drive). B/W2 look to be THE pokemon games of all time, yet as my first region, Hoenn will always have my fave spot. Lastly, Layton. Funnily enough, my mum was more interested than I was, but that fateful day, I asked "May I have a go?" Loved the series since! And with registering a 3DSXL bagging you a free copy, cannot wait until I can use my code! Woop. Voted for Pokemon, however, as it has been with me and my best buddies almost all our life

  25. MartinIsAwesome Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 19:07

    Aww, this is difficult. I prefered last year's polls where we had to vote for a best game for each category.
    Also, it's hard for me to judge this properly as like quite a few people, I haven't got a Wii U yet, nor have I got around to playing most of the games on that list. In fact, most of the games I've played this year were either from 2011 or older, including some Gamecube classics like Eternal Darkness, Super Mario Sunshine and Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes.
    The only game from this year I've played for a decent amount of time is The Last Story, and even that I've not finished let. Still, it has been brilliant.

  26. K-tet Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 19:22

    Best Nintendo Game of 2012? Pokémon Black and White 2. By far the complete gaming experience.

    Breaking it into console categories though, here are my top picks:

    DS: Pokémon Black & White 2 - Had everything you wanted in a complete Pokémon game, delivering the best experience. A fitting tribute to 15 years of Pokémon, and by far the best game on the list.
    3DS: Kid Icarus: Uprising - Fantastic reboot, and also brought to the party what the 3DS can do. 50% Rail Shooter, 50% TPRPG. Great use of 3D and amazing netplay backed with great graphics and an amazing soundtrack.
    Wii: The Last Story - In-depth gameplay complete with great character development and engaging storyline. Excellent graphics, fantastic soundtrack, and had some great vocal performances.
    Wii U: ZombiU - Classic survival horror that pulls off the traditional very well. Perfect for those that want a challenge.

  27. C00LI098 Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 19:23

    I don't feel particularly strongly about any of the listed games. I ended up voting for BW2, though Miracle Mask is a close second.

  28. Mew3 Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 19:35

    Pokemon Black And White 2 are worthy for a handheld award. So much things to do once again. It still keeps me coming back for more pokefun. Black & White Kyurem are awsome fusions too!


    Exactly what I was thinking

  29. ThePokekid78 Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 21:47

    This list is so flawed; how can Family Party: 30 Great Games not be on there??

    On a serious note, I voted BW2...literally because it's the only one on the list I've played!

  30. RiksilveR Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 22:13

    Got to be Resi. Not only is it a fantastic game in its own right, it also shows all the naysayers that 3DS can do more mature games. Plus it's scary as hell.

  31. AtomAtton Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 22:23

    Ah, Kid Icarus Uprising. I can rember seeing the reveal. I wasn't at all exited. I didn't play it at GAMEfest. It was only until Friday when I thought, "Hey, why not?" So I bought it, not expecting much from it... WOW! It was amazing, and suprised me. Fantastic and memorable characters, breathtaking music, hillarious and well-writen script, superb voice acting, fun gameplay, replayability, and an epic finale. And once you get used to them the controls are actually pretty decent too. it's perfect in every way, and that's why Kid Icarus Uprising is my best game of 2012, and for me, the best handheld game of all time.

  32. fisher2007 Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 22:54

    Kid Icarus uprising.

  33. Piplup Thursday 13th Dec 2012 at 23:44

    Project Zero 2 for me, I haven't played any other Nintendo games this year :p

    Fantastic story- especially the new endings- and a brilliant atmosphere, looks and sounds great, is really unique and interesting, and in terms of the whole series it shows some great development and progression of ideas. By far the scariest game on Wii, and disappointingly the best Survival Horror game of this gen. I luckily had no problems with the controls after the second chapter, so they didn't mar my experience at all, and the awful haunted house didn't detract from the story at least. It's a crime that this apparently sold so abysmally.

  34. callum2003 Friday 14th Dec 2012 at 08:10

    Kid Icarus Uprising. I remember the day when i preordered it from amazon with one day delivery as it said it would come by launch day. They lied. i got it 1 day after, launch day.

  35. 5OUNDWAVE Friday 14th Dec 2012 at 09:06

    i had kid icarus the day it came out but did'nt play it till 2 week's before the wii u came out , the flying section's were great i just did'nt enjoy it once he was on his feet so i voted for nsmbu but the best game i've played this year was'nt on a nintendo console

  36. pokemaniac 212 Friday 14th Dec 2012 at 10:28

    For me it has to be Pokemon Black/White 2. I admit that, as my username suggests, I'm biased towards the pokémon series, but in my opinion these are the best pokémon games ever. By far the best storyline in a pokemon game, a huge amount of iconic pokémon available to catch, and the best post-game since emerald means that this would comfortably make my top 10 games of all time, let alone my game of the year.

  37. jawafour Friday 14th Dec 2012 at 11:14

    VVVVVV is an extraordinary title, with the simple retro graphics hiding gameplay built around amazing challenges and total addiction. The 3DS game of the year!

  38. Tams Friday 14th Dec 2012 at 11:35

    I thought there was a consensus that AC3 was rather rubbish. A step down from the rest of the series and a "here, I'll choose what you want to do game".

    For me it didn't help that the story was bad.

  39. deKay Friday 14th Dec 2012 at 12:35

    New Super Mario Bros U is my game of the year. It's the only game, in many, many years, that I can't find a single fault with. It may actually be perfect.

    (Still got escapeVektor and Gunman Clive to come yet, though!)

  40. Ninjendo Friday 14th Dec 2012 at 13:17

    Why do I not see Xenoblade Chronicles in that poll? That is easily the best game of the year if not one of the best games of all time.

  41. deKay Friday 14th Dec 2012 at 13:30

    Why do I not see Xenoblade Chronicles in that poll? That is easily the best game of the year if not one of the best games of all time.

    Because it's a list of 2012 games.

  42. MartinIsAwesome Friday 14th Dec 2012 at 13:36

    Why do I not see Xenoblade Chronicles in that poll? That is easily the best game of the year if not one of the best games of all time.


    It came out in August last year. Fair enough if you only played it this year, but it isn't vaild as a 2012 game.

  43. wiill 64 Friday 14th Dec 2012 at 13:45

    Went with Kid Icarus: Uprising.
    It revived the Kid Icarus franchise and did expertly well. The characters were funny, the action was great, and there was loads to do in it. One of the best 3DS games released yet.
    Honourable mentions go to Pokemon Black and White 2, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, The Last Story, and Nintendo Land.

  44. n0ts0super Friday 14th Dec 2012 at 17:28

    for me it had to be the following:

    3DS
    kid icarus uprising came out on top for me. I loved nsmb2 aswell but this won hands down! gameplay that never gets stale, getting board of a level? change weapon and have a whole new take on it! flawless online play that really brought it together and you coukd test your skills! felling like a challenge? ramp up the difficulty a bit! had a bad day and just need something to immerse in? no problem just make it a bit easier! all this topped off with some witty chatter between the characters that is sure to bring a smile to your face!this game is truly a work of art!

    wii (my overall favourite game)

    the last story is my ovarall favourite game of 2012. I dont know if it was the engaging story that gripped me from the start, the fluid battle system that made it fun and enjoyable to battle or the characters that complement each other so well. it feels truly epic when you have a full band of adventurers and you take on the impressive bosses and you can control all of them easily. a classic in my book.

    ds

    the ds game of the year goes to pokemon black 2 hands down for me. it brings together all the things that i love from the series while the mixture of pokemon from old and new with so much to do i think its the best one yet. the new legendaries were nicely done and join avenue is a nice addition, it can be really quite addictive!

    wii u

    the wii u game of the year goes to zombiu. this game is just amazing. the atmosphere is eerily real and has your heart pumping. the small additions such as the ads in the subway still changing or the deals in the supermarket still swaying make it all too real. the gamepad inclusion is very nicely done and really adds to it. A massive well done to ubisoft for this gem!

  45. Accelgor7 Saturday 15th Dec 2012 at 16:17

    Torn between Kid Icarus Uprising and Pokemon Black 2 :cry:

  46. keir Sunday 16th Dec 2012 at 12:30

    KID ICARUS UPRISING for me but POKEMON Black 2 is a great Game :D P.S add me on your FC list

  47. King Slazo Sunday 16th Dec 2012 at 12:34

    Surprised Theatrhythm isn't mentioned as it was the best game on 3DS this year, hands down. Heck, if it wasn't for Pokémon Black and White 2, it'd be the one I'd be voting for (or wanting to vote for) in this selection. But yeah, it has to be BW2 for me, taking a successful reboot of the franchise and running with it. I haven't had this much fun playing a Pokémon game since Silver and Stadium 2 back in the day.

  48. tomonm Monday 17th Dec 2012 at 15:26

    Why do I not see Xenoblade Chronicles in that poll? That is easily the best game of the year if not one of the best games of all time.

    Because it was released in 2011!

  49. MartinIsAwesome Monday 17th Dec 2012 at 16:13

    This, definitely. Theatrhythm is my most played game on my 3DS with well over 100 hours put into it. It even entered the 3DS sales charts at No. 1. Should have totally made the shortlist, despite the slightly awkward name.

  50. 9Westy9 Monday 17th Dec 2012 at 17:54

    I'd have to go with Virtue's last reward. Best story in a game since it's predecessor (that I've played)

  51. starmie68 Monday 31st Dec 2012 at 11:00

    I keep thinking of picking up a 3DS, didnt release that kid icurus was such a good game

  52. kirlia trainer Monday 31st Dec 2012 at 12:51

    My vote goes to Pokémon BW2. They are great games, one of the best Pokémon games yet. I just love the comback of the gymleaders in the world tournament and the games are a nice polished version of the original BW.

  53. Dan-the-Wii-man Monday 31st Dec 2012 at 13:33

    Put over 40 hours into Nintendo Land... its so good me and my housemates are on it all the time :D

  54. noobgamer9 Monday 31st Dec 2012 at 14:51

    Resident Evil Revelations. That such a graphically impressive game could be squeezed into the tiny 3ds is a feat in itself. The story and raid mode is great, and it has introduced me to the series.

  55. CBTIRL Monday 31st Dec 2012 at 15:37

    Kid Icarus Uprising wins it for me. It's the best looking game on 3DS, infinitely playable, it plays brilliantly and has perfect online play. It's also the funniest game I've ever played, and has the only non-boring tutorial ever

  56. deKay Monday 31st Dec 2012 at 15:38

    NSMBU.

    Not only is it the best game this year, it's the best game released since 1983. I've been on the fence about whether Mario 64 is better than it or not, and it's close, but no - U just edges it out.

  57. wghtmf Monday 31st Dec 2012 at 15:52

    I now have Nintendo Land as well as NSMB2 and B/W2 which I mentioned earlier, so I voted for it because I thought it was better than those other two and I guess having played 3 of the games is enough.

  58. ginjaninja Monday 31st Dec 2012 at 16:49

    Where is Pokemon Conquest! :evil:
    Oh well, it only came second best it Kid Icarus Uprising! The best looking game to ever touch my 3DS, it expertly reinvents an old hero from the NES days. I really enjoyed the story and its innovative control system. This game does so much right.

  59. Komodo_Wolfgang Monday 31st Dec 2012 at 17:39

    For me it was between The Last Story and Kid Icarus,but for me The Last Story just edged it for me.

    So its really that fantastic?
    I saw it ONCE for Ł20, in a shop called Granger games. I couldnt buy it though because I told my mum Id get her something.
    Not seen it in a shop anywhere since.

    Is it worth the full Ł40 Ive seen on some (imo overpriced) Websites?

    Where is Pokemon Conquest! :evil:
    Oh well, it only came second best it Kid Icarus Uprising! The best looking game to ever touch my 3DS, it expertly reinvents an old hero from the NES days. I really enjoyed the story and its innovative control system. This game does so much right.

    I too think KIU is a great 3DS game. I really love the dialogue in the game too, one of the few games thats actualy made me laugh in the script. I also got the fanboy jitters when it mentions other games. Especialy the Metroid one. The online is fantastic and I do really well on it too. Just a shame its a bit finnicky with me for some reason. The way its going with MK7, might be the same case =/

    Fallblox is a fun game, with neverending possibilities. I got it just before my sister broke my 3DS in half. Offers some real challenges, fantastic game. I got a Red 3DS today, now I have to pay for all the games I had on my old 3DS because I cant transfer T-T So thats goodbye to my embassador certificate and games... Im gonna miss MinishCap the most =/

  60. King Slazo Monday 31st Dec 2012 at 17:49

    Not only is it the best game this year, it's the best game released since 1983. I've been on the fence about whether Mario 64 is better than it or not, and it's close, but no - U just edges it out.

    I... whut. No. You can't be that stupid or crazy. You just can't be.

    The best game of the modern era. You think its better than every game that's come out on a Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, Sega or Atari console or handheld? Please admit yourself to your nearest facility.
