VGW staff Game of the Year 2012 lists

After much deliberation, VGW has named its 2012 Game of the Year categorical winners, and while we attempted to get as much input from as many of our contributors as possible, there was no way each team member would be represented in a way that was fair. With that in mind, we decided to give everyone the ability to give their top ten lists for Game of the Year 2012. Below are the must-play titles straight from the editors, staff writers and contributors themselves. Who do your tastes align with most?
