    Are we going to count votes or something at the end?

    I'll opt for Journey as my game of the year.

    Overall a very disappointing year, I barely bought anything.

    I'm surprised to see that mentioned, fair enough you obviously liked it. personally I found it infuriating and in general to be a confused experience, it was trying to be two different games and failing in both regards. It had a lot of potential and if the whole game had been a lot more like the deceptively good demo level then it'd probably have been a pretty decent game.

    Sleeping dogs and the walking dead are the two games that surprised me the most. I hadn't even heard of the comics or tv series before the game can't out so just assumed it would be another telltale disappointment. I normally don't like zombie themes but was really impressed by it

    GOTY: Dishonoured :)

    Just had my first couple of hours on Far Cry 3.
    Not impressed at all.
    Worst first few hours in ANY game that i can think of tbh.
    I'll give it the weekend, could be traded monday.

    Compared to SSX 3 it was a souless mess, one of my most dissapointing games of this gen, and that Autolog stuff can piss right off.

    Well I've only bought a lot of old games this year, with the exception being ME3 which I really enjoyed. Seeing the love Borderlands 2 and Farcry 3 have got has tempted me into getting them however so we'll see!

    It was a valiant attempt I thought, but carried a bit too much of the baggage of a mid-development change in focus brought about by fan backlash and some horrendous design in the deadly descents.

    Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, hands down. Probably the greatest and most well balanced fighter ever conceived.

    Wipeout 2048. Still the best game I've played on Vita, and one of the best ever versions of Wipeout. In an alternate universe somewhere, the Wipeout games are one of the top franchises out there and Sony Liverpool are a household name.

    Ratchet and Clank Trilogy. Three of the best PS2 games sexied up and on one disc? Yes please!

    Far Cry 3. Stunning sense of location, some totally bonkers emergent gameplay, and diving into water has never been so satisfying!

    Twisted Metal. This was easily the most chaotic online game i've ever played. People complained that it was a game from the mid to late 90s wrapped in a modern skin. That's exactly what i wanted from it.

    Can i throw in Rayman Origins too because of the Vita version? I've mostly plaed it on the PS3! ;)

    Honourable mentions: Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Borderlands 2, King of Fighters XIII and Binary Domain.

    I need to add DayZ to the my list, sure it counts.

    Very surprised how few mentions FEZ has received - a masterpiece imo.
    Phil Fish being a massive cunt costs it some points.
    I kinda wanted to punch my TV when i was watching Indie Game: The Movie. In fact i thought they were all a bunch of colossal twats, with the exception of Ed McMillen.

    Yup, they're all going to be counted. That's the point of the thread!

    Mass Effect 3 and Walking Dead are very close IMO, I can decide between them. Honourable mention to Halo 4 which I think gets the title of "best halo"

    I'm surprised it's taken 6 pages for someone to single out Halo 4. I've not played it of course., but it seemed to please the fans of the previous ones.

    Halo 4 is a great Halo game but that's also its problem, the Halo design is starting to show its age. I think the consensus is that 4 is proving that 343 can make a proper Halo game and update it a bit, they didn't go far enough really but probably didn't want to alienate 'teh hardcorz' so the next one will be where they start doing something a bit different.

    This has been a very good year for games. Mostly sequels however, but what sequels they are!

    It's extremely close between Borderlands 2 and The Walking Dead for me.

    Borderlands 2 is bonkers, laugh out loud, over the top shooting with a lot of reply value for the loot hungry.

    Walking Dead was a well thought out, story driven masterclass. Didn't quite get "the choices affect story" premise completely right (once again it's more an illusion of choice in the final parts), but it didn't matter by the end. I was completely and utterly emotionally involved.

    I'm going to say GOTY:

    The Walking Dead.

    NB: Biggest let-down was Halo 4. Dated game model, lazy story with even lazier plot devices. Looked fantastic however, but as my old man used to say "You can't polish a turd!".

    The game I've played most this year is Battlefield 3 by a country mile.

    Oh, it's from last year.

    In that case Borderlands 2, even though I got incredibly bored with it.

    Halo 4 is indeed pushing the normal Halo gameplay perhaps that little bit too far, but it's understandable why.

    The real sadness about that is that I still think the gameplay is far better than almost all other FPS.

    @RedSparrows I more or less agree, I think it says a lot about the genre. It really needs a Half Life 3 shaped kick in the ass.

    Assassins Creed 3. Despite all it's bugs it's been played a lot at the expense of Halo 4 and Far Cry 3.

    I can't really think of any really. I've played some good games but haven't played a game that's given me that must play this every night feeling since asscreed 2 or la noire really. The better ones would be dishonoured (which I got bored of after 5 hours), sleeping dogs, asscreed 3 (lovely graphics too) and some of the weird little steam games whose names I always forget. I liked the testament of Sherlock Holmes a lot. Too
