They are not on either of the two polls but two games I'll mention are Binary Domain and Syndicate. Both cyberpunk (the best genre) shooters, third and first person, respectively. Binary domain is more of a typical Gears of War style shooter while Syndicate has some interesting combat mechanics with being able to slow down time and also hack opponents during combat to do stuff like make their weapon backfire. They are also both pretty short, so I'd definitely recommend checking one or both of them out.
The only game on this list that I played was Lollipop Chainsaw and while it was fun for what it is and I love Suda51 I can't say it was one of my favorite games of the year. Still glad I played it though.
