First up we have the big hitters, Halo 4 , Max Payne 3 and Call of Duty: Black Ops II amongst the games Shooting it out for the top spot.

Group Two Selections

Could Role Playing Games win GotY for the second successive year? If so, it's best chance surely lies with either Mass Effect 3 or Borderlands 2 .

Action-Adventure has also had another big year, Assassin's Creed III, Resident Evil 6 and Sleeping Dogs will be amongst the great games chasing its genre award.

Also up for grabs are the genre awards for best Simulation, Strategy, Puzzle, Music & Rhythm as well as the best Party Game.

We move on to the big one. 2012 has been a great year for gamers and excellent games have been released in every genre, but which game will be the TrueAchievements Game of the Year for 2012?

Xbox Live Arcade Games have had another good year, but could Trials Evolution , Minecraft , Happy Wars or The Walking Dead possibly pick up the GotY along with the XBLA award?

Group Four Selections

On to the final poll and new for this year, we have Achievement Votes.

I'm sure Lone Wolf Legend in Halo 4 and Completionist in Assassin's Creed III will be amongst the front runners for the Proudest Achievement vote.

The Best Achievement Name could go anywhere, but I Swear! I Did It By Mistake! in Lollipop Chainsaw or 'Tis but a scratch ! in Game of Thrones are my personal favourites.

Also up for grabs in the final poll is the award for the Most Fun Achievement and the Most Original Achievement.

1. What achievements from the games released this year are you most proud of?
