Wow, the Action/Adventure category is a hard one for me to just pick 1 from, Uncharted 2, Brutal Legend, Arkham Asylum and Assassin's Creed 2 were all some of my favourite games of the year :( Its like every game I loved last year is in that one category!
Posted 04:40pm 12/2/10
We spent more time grooming those categories than is probably apparent. I really don't like grouping things by genre, especially when you have games like Borderlands, Overlord 2 and Wii Sports etc in play that could be in any number of categories.

Hopefully it's good enough for the task though, at least there's an "other" category for write-ins.

I vote Teq, Ripplemaker of the year.
Posted 04:51pm 12/2/10
Damn Khelzor i hear ya, for me:


Forza 3 or FIFA10?

Street Fighter 4 or Tekken 6? (shhhh SF4 of course)

Not sure about the first person shooters either, i mean i was inclined to go with MW2 but maaaaaaaan.......

This is torture at it's best.

I just wanted to post that pic. Didn't care where.
Posted 05:39pm 12/2/10
i've played none of those games :[
qgl non-gamer of 2009! :/
Posted 06:13pm 12/2/10
Assassins Creed 2 hasn't been released yet.

On a platform that matters.

I've played a few games on the list but the only ones I've really finished have been the Fallout DLCs, Dragon Age and I guess SF4. Played a bit of Braid, Batman and Dirt 2 but not enough to really have a worthwhile opinion on.

How do you sort the lists? I noticed it wasn't in alphabetical order and for the 3 categories I voted in they all ended up being on the top.
Posted 06:14pm 12/2/10
i voted, everywhere except in the conslols department.
Posted 06:22pm 12/2/10
Yep skip category got a workout out my form.

Left 4 dead 2, Uncharted 2 were my favourites. Played Natural-Selection and Company of heroes throughout the year in terms of oldies.

fighting game was the hardest choice so many good ones to choose from
Posted 10:49pm 12/2/10
Worst game of 2009 HAD to be Americas Army 3. What a complete fail that POS was.
Posted 01:20am 13/2/10

It would of been good if they just patched it and sorted out the bugs and gameplay issues instead of firing the whole dev team lol.

Best Game for me, Modern Warfare 2. Can't get enough of the multiplayer!!

Most played game, Team Fortress 2. Love the cartoon like visuals and messing with people's heads with the spy!
