Golden Joysticks 2012: The nominees for Best Sports...

FIFA 12? SSX? NBA 2K12? Only one can net the golden goal...

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 sports.

A top selection of titles for the sporty types - it's especially nice to see SSX back on piste and duking it out for top honours. Otherwise, pretty much as you were... or might FIFA Street steal a march on its beloved big brother this term? If you fancy a flutter, the sublime NBA 2K 12 is a handy outside bet.

Here's a breakdown of the 9 contenders swelling the roster in the Best Sports category!
