Alongside the Best of 2012 for the iOS App Store, Apple also released its nominations for the best app and game of the year in the Mac App Store yesterday.

Journaling app Day One was named App of the Year, while Deus Ex: Human Revolution Ultimate Edition took the Game of the Year award.

Photography app CameraBag 2 was named runner-up for app of the year, and Splice: Tree of Life was the second place game.

Apple also compiled a list of the Best Apps of 2012, which includes titles like Tweetbot, Clear, and Things.

Apple’s list of Best Games of 2012 includes apps like Bastion, Pocket Planes, and Limbo.

This is the second year that the Mac App Store has existed, and the second year that Apple has chosen the best Mac Apps. Last year, Pixelmator and Civilization V were Apple’s top picks.

No award for best menu bar app of 2012?

Oh well, maybe my next app can take an award in 2013. Congrats to the devs of the winning apps from 2012.

Deus Ex Human Revolution is the best game I’ve ever played on any platform… The music, characters,choices… I love it. Great game which deserve a movie.

You should play some more games. That said, it is pretty good.

Funny that Day One should be picked. Apparently it’s getting a lot of flak from users about journal entries being saved in plain text, making the password feature little more than eye candy.
Sweet, my app Living Earth Desktop for Mac is one of 20 in the best of 2012 Mac apps list :D:D:D

    very quick for me on Safari. Exceptional Blog!

    Mo Ghaoui, Personal Blog is kinda boring. You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create article
    headlines to get people to open the links. You might try adding a video
    or a related picture or two to get people excited about everything’ve got
    to say. In my opinion, it might bring your blog
    a little bit more interesting.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell
