Persona 4 Arena wins Destructoid's best fighting game of 2012 award

Persona 4 Arena wins Destructoid's best fighting game of 2012 award In a awarding that came as a surprise, Persona 4 Arena took top honors in a community-run poll at Destructoid, one of the most popular gaming sites currently in action. The other fighting games competing against it were:
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2
  • Skullgirls
  • Dead or Alive 5
  • Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale
This is not the first award for Persona 4 Arena as it also won the best fighting game of 2012 at the Spike VGAs.

Since both of these awards have been samples of community polls, public opinion seems to have accepted that Persona 4 Arena is a truly standout fighting game. Combining this with the game's great reviews on launch and the high attendance of players at major tournaments and it appears that Persona 4 Arena is truly the standout fighting game of 2012.

Given these awards and opinions, we would like to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
