Golden Joysticks 2012: The nominees for Top Gaming Moment...

Spec Op's genocide, Dark Souls' boss scraps... what rocked your world?

The HMV sponsored GamesMaster Golden Joystick Awards have arrived, and you're all invited to vote and win prizes here! Each week we'll be casting a beady eye over different categories, taking you through the prime contenders before leaving you savvy lot to duke it out in the comments section. This time around, we're talking Top Gaming Moments.

Games are fun mostly all of the time, right? There are, however, certain moments that are a wee bit special. So special, in fact that you're still raving on about them to your mates years down the line. We understood, and so the brand spanking new Golden Joystick 'Top Gaming Moment' award was born!

For 2012, we've nineteen stellar - not to mention SPOILER INTENSIVE - moments to savour and vote for, so cast your eyes over the following vids and... well, get voting.

You know the drill by now. Our GJ editorial team has bashed heads to chat the various nominees, which you can watch below. Then, it's onto the contenders themselves - rated one-by-one...

Spec Ops: The Line - White Phosphorus

Walker slaughters a battalion of the 33rd with a white phosphorus-crammed mortar. It's a Flawless Victory... except a raft of innocent women and children are caught in the blast. Apocalypse, now...

Mass Effect 3 - Tuchanka Choice

Watching London getting rinsed by the Reapers is brutal, but for sheer moral quandaries it's all about Tuchanka. Do you cure the genophage or let it endure, and what fate lies in store for Mordin?

Resident Evil: Revelations - Two Ships!

Jill is drowning. Luckily, Chris arrives in the nick of time to rescue her. Typical cheesy scene, huh? WRONG. The engine room is empty. Why? Redfield only got on the wrong freaking boat! Classic twist.

Sonic Generations - City Escape

Generations is the best Blue Blur platformer since Sonic & Knuckles. This stage - being chased by a demonic big rig through the streets of San Fran as either old or new Sonic - was classic 'hog.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - 'Turbulence'

Movie plane crash set-pieces never fail to scare the bejezus out of us, so trust Modern Warfare 3 to take things one step further. Weightlessness, slow mo gunfire... utter immersion, utter terror.
