Default Best of 2012 - Forum Edition

Greetings,

Touch Arcade recently posted its Best iPhone and iPad Games of 2012 Roundup collecting all of the game category lists recently created by their talented staff. While I believe that they have done a magnificent job of highlighting and showcasing the year's best gaming apps, I could not help being surprised at the inclusion of some titles, and the exclusion of others.

I would like to invite interested forum members to contribute their own lists of the best games of 2012 using the TA categories as a model, or by adding your own categories. This would be an excellent opportunity to bring to our attention some of your favorites that you feel may have been overlooked or under appreciated. The existing categories are as follows:

Free-to-Play
Group Gaming
Strategy and Defense
Ports
Pinball
Shoot-em-ups
Racing
RPG and Adventure
Hill Climbers
Endless Runners
Fighting Games
Platformers
Shooters
Puzzle and Word
Action
Arcade
Miscellaneous

I look forward to reading your personal picks.

RPG and Adventure: Lili, Heroes Call, Horn
Hill Climbers: NA
Endless Runners: Zaxxon Escape,

***Just because a game is listed doesn't mean it is a very good game in my eyes. The ones in BOLD are the creme de la creme.

No because this is the best in each category.

Not only that, "...or by adding your own categories." essentially means this isn't following the format you guys used for the front-page articles, and thus makes this thread entirely pointless.

Greetings Eli,

When I read through the introductory discussion on that thread it seemed that the intention was to select a single Game of the Year from everyone's contributed Top Ten List. The proposed aim here was to contribute a series of personal best of category lists. The two separate aims can be characterized as exclusivity vs. comprehensiveness. Of course, I have a significant amount of respect for your judgement, so if you feel that this thread is inappropriate or distracting from the Forum Game of the Year activity, please feel free to scap it. As you can probably tell from my signature, I simply enjoy categorizing and making lists.

Take care, and thank you for your efforts at providing such a tremendous service to iOS gamers through the TA website and forum.
