As voting for the Golden Joystick Awards 2012 enters its final weeks, we take a look at each of the individual categories. Today is the turn of Top Gaming Moment category.
Best Top Gaming Moment shortlist (for an explanation of each moment, head to Golden Joystick Awards):
Who are we voting for?
Matt Cundy (UK Editor): Journey. When it was over I just sat and thought about everything me and my anonymous human companion had experienced together. It was deep. There were deep emotions. I sat on my sofa and contemplated these deep inter-human emotions. I wanted to find my anonymous human companion and give him/her a hug, a genuine hug of love to say “thanks for joining me on this journey. It has been incredible and although it has now ended the memory of the journey will stay with me forever. Thank you. I love you. I will leave you alone now. Goodbye.”
David Houghton (UK Associate Editor): The ending of Journey. From the brutal last stages of the mountan climb, to the strained, agonising last moments, to the incandenscent joy of the final run and the peaceful catharsis of the very end, Journey's final revelations are the most powerful, painful and elating sequence in games from the last year. Longer than that, in fact. When the truth of the last mosaics is seen and the secrets of the opening are revealed, everything you've previously done, seen, experienced and shared makes utter sense on such a profound unspoken level that you can't help but sob all over your big ecsatic grin.
Justin Towell (UK Content Editor): From this list? It has to be Resident Evil: Revelations. I did wonder why the two rooms were the same yet different. Wrong boat, weren’t it? What a klutz.
