Best of 2012

Out of all of our nominee categories this year, discussion over our RPG category was the most heated by far. And it makes sense. Things looked rough for role-playing games for a few years, but now it's one of the most varied and popular genres of games. From western to Japanese to massively multiplayer, RPGs are now fully in the spotlight. Feels good, right?
