Updated Readers Choice Awards Readers Choice Awards

End-of-the-year lists are so 10 years ago. That's why we here at News have decided to do it up for 2012. Along with our usual lists of the best social games of the year, we're putting the power directly in your hands. Get ready for The 2012 Readers' Choice Awards, wherein you will decide which social game earns the coveted Game of the Year award.

Like our past Facebook Game Face-off bracket competitions, we'll see 16 social games go head-to-head in competition for your votes over the next five weeks, starting this Friday. However, putting the power directly into your hands presents one small problem: You need to decide which games to include in the competition.

So, here we are. This post is a call-out to all of the News readers to cast their vote for which social games should compete in the first annual Readers' Choice Awards. They don't have to be the most popular, but the games included in this competition must have released between January and December 2012.

If you have a game in mind that you think should be included in this year's awards, then sound off in the comments. We'll consider your votes based on that simple requirement and a few more factors. So, cast your vote in the comments, and stay tuned this Friday to see whether your game of choice made the cut.
