MW3 was 2011, not 2012 Same with Battlefield 3. I know you said you did not play many games this year, but that's not the point its for games for 2012, not when you played them.

I'm going to wait until I play a few more things before I fill out the categories, but I can tell you right now my game of the year is XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

I'm of the opinion that for a couple of years now, we've been at the point in a generation where developers are holding back their best stuff for the next generation, so as a result the games we do get are by and large overly derivative and "safe" for lack a of a better word. Developers and Publishers are focused on making as much money as they can while they can before they have to switch to next gen. In such an environment XCOM feels like a breath of fresh air. It's unlike anything I've ever played (closest being Valkyria Chronicles, another fantastic game), and for that alone it would be high in the running for my GOTY, but the fact that it's actually really ****ing awesome easily pushes it ahead of other games released this year. It's basically 2012's Dark Souls for me. It's challenging. It punishes sloppy play. It requires to you think before you act. But it's oh so rewarding and satisfying when you understand all of the mechanics and can play it well.

The Walking Dead, no doubt, was my GOTY. It surprised me on many levels I wasn't expecting.

2012 was terrible to me, though. I got only 5 games this year and it wasn't games that I was hugely anticipating. Also, I only own one game of the poll and my categories will narrow down to few games:

Best Action Game
Asura's Wrath

Best Downloadable Game
The Walking Dead

Best DLC
Asura's Wrath Chapter 4

Best Soundtrack
Asura's Wrath

Best New Character
Lee Everett (TWD)

Best Story
Asura's Wrath

Best Game That Isn't A Sequel
The Walking Dead

Best Game You Played That Didn't Come Out This Year
Batman Arkham City

Best Sports Game
PES 2013

Most Disappointing Game of the Year
Resident Evil 6

Game of the Year 2012
The Walking Dead

Most Anticipated 2013 Game
DmC


2013 will be so much better.

GOTY - The Walking Dead. Never have I had such an emotional gaming experience or been so invested in the outcome or connected to the characters.

Far Cry 3 reviews are going to make me hold off from doing the ultimate honors but right now it's almost certainly XCOM.

I still need to play Black Ops II, AC3 & TWD, all of which I'll be getting in the next month.

So far my GOTY will either be ME3 or Halo 4 though.

Looking at that list at the top, what an overall underwhelming year in gaming. Seems rather boring in comparison to years past. Nothing stands out as clear GOTY to me.
