An epic duel between it and Force Unleashed 2.

Only allowed 20 on the poll, so if we need to actually add more that people would actually vote for we (by which I mean Sabre) can start another poll. Without Jae, Mav, Lynk and Sabre I would have only had ME2 vs RDR. Also without stoffe there would have only been 15 choices on this poll.

Well like I said, most didn't warrant inclusion. That being said, what is popular and what is "good" are too very different propositions. Just look at the Wii - the most popular game console where the best selling titles aren't even games.

Ahhh, I chose Alan Wake since it's the only one I played this year. I'm so behind the times. A lot of those games are in my queue though... bought them, but have yet to play.

Ack, being limited to only 3 is a pain. AP might be one of my favorites in 2011, but I'm just now buying it since it was so buggy initially.

Halo Reach and Red Dead Redemption top 'em all. They were/are unbelievably fun. NBA 2k11 should definitely be on there. Even if you're just a casual fan of basketball, it's easily the best sports game ever (and that's not just from me...).

My three votes go to games not in the poll:
DeathSpank
Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga
Darksiders

Two others that you missed and could be considered for the poll come to mind:
Dead Rising 2
Drakensang - The River of Time

Pain? I only voted for two as I was worried about my Mass Effect Fanboy status being revoked should RDR or Fable 3 win by one vote (not likely).

I voted Mass Effect 2 mainly because it is one of my favorite games ever at least up until the final boss.

My other vote went to Fallout: New Vegas. This is mainly due to the fact that Obsidian kept everything I love about Bethesda games yet still producing the story Bethesda usually is lacking in. The NPC actually have something to say and most have some type of back story. Still wish they could have did more to stop some of the recurring bugs from Oblivion and Fallout 3, but still was a very fun waste of time. I still cannot fathom something this brilliant could be developed by the same company as Alpha Protocol. Of course I have to remember Obsidian also developed my favorite Star Wars game of all-time TSL. That does not revoke my BioWare/Mass Effect fanboy status, does it?

Other games that had my consideration:

Fable 3 – Fable 3 may have gotten my vote for favorite game except for the second half of the game (which really isn’t half, but more like a quarter). Between that and a goofy unexplained final enemy and way too easy combat I had to place my vote elsewhere. Still was fun to play, at least up until a certain point.

Red Dead Redemption – Red Dead Redemption was fun, but being from Texas and raised in a small ranching/farming community, I could not get over a horse not being able to swim. Still need to get over that and accept it as game mechanic to finish the game.

BioShock 2 – Bought the game around the day it came out, but still have not even opened the package.

Game that I gave no consideration to:

Alpha Protocol – Tried, but between the mini-games and the bugs was so frustrated I almost threw not only the game disc, but the entire 360 out the window. Decent story, but does not make up for the poor design.

For me, Mass Effect 2 became a favourite at the final boss. It's probably the most widely mass-distributed rickroll in history.

I voted for Mass Effect II, Fallout: New Vegas, and Civilization V. All three were a lot of fun.

I still need to try Alpha Protocol. Not sure why I haven't picked it up yet... I guess I got distracted. Oh, well. Eventually, I suppose.

The only thing that comes to close to a GotY is Fallout: New Vegas. Note, I say close, because even though I felt that F:NV was probably the most entertaining game that I played this year, I don't feel that it added or introduced anything conceptually new that was different from the zeitgeist. TL;DR: it's not Portal in terms of doing something new, so I don't believe any game this year really merits the moniker.

I suppose one could mention Super Mario Galaxy 2, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, and Alpha Protocol*, but none of these titles really hit the nail on the Change Everything(R) hammer.

Question: Is it possible for one to unvote, in the case where, say - I don't know - for Mass Effect 2?

I'm a jackass and I didn't just vote for 3.

Ay Bay-bay because I actually bought it, if in the discount bin. The rest I only voted for because I want, and I like...or at least I'm throwing my name in the hat.

New Veg not because I played it, but rather want to play it after witnessing it at a pal's house.

FF13 same as NewVeg

GOW3 simply because I played 1 & 2 and thought those were awesome...well ok I demoed it.

ME2 just because so many people here liked it and a pal of mine raves by it. I dun care really. You could call it an inflationary vote.

Red Dead Redemption. It's grand theft hoarsiez. Gotta support rockstar.

SC2: anything continuing the awesomeness of SC gets my vote.

I guess that all depends on your definition of GotY. Personally, I rather a game be filled with decent storytelling and fun to play rather than being innovative. Innovative, for the sake of innovations just annoys me. If it adds to game play or storytelling then I’m all for it, but developers pulling stuff out of thier butts just so they can brag about being the first to do it is just plain stupid. Example: Peter Molyneu.

I left the vote public so there could be no shenanigans.

easy peasy this year since there were so few truly great games this year. i actually did play a lot of the games on that list, but only 3 games really stood out.

Fallout: New Vegas
Mass Effect 2
Red Dead Redemption

Although I was disappointed in Mass Effect 2 as an RPG, its presentation and the experience took my completely by surprise. As boring as the original ME was, so much fun was Mass Effect 2.

Together with AC: Brotherhood my game of the year.

They are both good games, true. I enjoyed ME2 very much at the time it came out, but now that the hype factor has worn off I don't find that it touches my GotY list. Which brings up another point entirely of whether or not recency factors into the decisions of most, I imagine it does. On the other hand RDR has certainly held up over the year in my mind... though playing as John's son pissed me off, much like ME2 Terminator did.

I'll be playing Bioshock 2 and AssBro next week, so can I vote later? And ME2 even later than that.

I'll explain myself: this year has totally crushed what little gaming time I had, so I'm enjoying my vacations the best way possible, catching up with my gaming.

If not, well, my preliminary votes goes to Halo Reach, Fallout New Vegas and CoD: Black Ops.

Alpha Protocol - Luckily, I seem to have once again dodged the bugs that plagued others. Perhaps it is a function of the small selection of games that I play, but I think the game deserves recognition for the amount of choice-and-consequence it presented. We need more games like this one.

Fallout: New Vegas - I think Nipton was genius. I think Benny was similarly awesome
spoiler:
(the man that tried to kill you is quite possibly the most altruistic character in the game. You find this out a few moments before you're forced to decide the manner of his death)
Hours and hours of fun. My only complaint is the amount of meta-gaming that becomes necessary to role play in game of this type (same problem with TES III and IV, though character building wasn't as much of an issue in those games).

Mass Effect 2 - I have to include this simply because it really did exceed my expectations in almost every way. Granted my expectations were very low and it wouldn't take much for me to trot out a list of things that I didn't like, but it did force me to re-examine my previous position that Bioware is only capable of publishing crap.

While I'm pretty into Fallout: New Vegas, I had to vote for ME 2 as my favorite I've played through it way too many times not to

Current Game: inFamous/Uncharted 2
As I have only played two of those games, I am forced to vote for only two of them.

Mass Effect 2: It's a different style from Mass Effect 1, but I enjoyed them both immensely--and I think ME2 has a bit more replayability than ME1. Here's to hoping they don't screw up Mass Effect 3.

Bayonetta: The camera angles annoyed me no end because all they seem to do is try to exploit the main character's body, and I hated not being able to kill large enemies without ridding the main character of her clothing. I kinda liked the main character herself, once I seperated her from the camera angles. The rest of the characters? Hated them. The story? Hated it. The gameplay, howver, is so good that it makes up for the game's many deficiencies.


Honorable mention: Heavy Rain w/Move. The regular controller stunk. I could barely walk, much less do anythng else. The Move controller saved it. The story...unfortunately, it stinks. There are so many plot holes...anyway. One of the main characters managed to drive me up the wall--and it was the girl, no less. I always tend to cut the female characters in games more slack than the male character, but not even her gender could save Madison from my eternal hatred. Not even being a journalist can excuse her being that stupid. (No offense intended to journalists. ) Back on track. In spite of the multiple plot holes, the annoying character, the horrendous child voice actors, and the fact that the only children who exist in the Heavy Rain universe are little brats, I enjoyed it. In fact, I'm about to go enjoy it again so I can get more trophies.


Chapter 12 of A Soul Adrift is out.

Short stories:
T'katlu: On the planet Felucia, a young apprentice of the Dark Side thinks back to the beginning of her training as she lies in wait for her prey...

All the Time: After four years in the Unknown Regions, the Exile returns to the known galaxy to visit an old enemy.

Broken: A master of the Dark Side finds himself about to lose the one thing he cares about--and he will do anything to stop her from endangering herself.
