I chose Risen. So there.
Vader [STAFF] Nov 24 2009, 04:41 am EST
People actually voted for DJ Hero.
Vader [STAFF] Nov 24 2009, 04:50 am EST
Both Risen and Modern Warfare 2 received the same score from AT. You know what; if I had to choose between the two, I'd definitely go for Risen, supporting the crumbling scene of single-player RPGs.

Vader: Where, where?

I still play Empire, even though it was released in the beginning of the year, however, I've modified the textures of every single playable faction, and also use other mods etc. to make it enjoyable, so in it's original state, it's not the game of the year.

And other than that, I think Dragon Age is the only game this year that I've really enjoyed, Risen was fun aswell, but not as good. So my vote goes for Dragon Age, despite being cliché etc. it was still.. very very good.

Modern Warfare 2 however just.. stressed me out, sure, the scenery was great, but there was just.. too much shit happening, it was like Left 4 Dead with terrorists/russians instead of zombies, combined with Rambo, on steroids.

UHMMMMMMMMM!!!! seems about right.

I had a tough choice between Dragon Age, Risen and Empire. Wouldn't have minded seeing Anno 1404 on the list, in my opinion the best strategy game of the year. Still Dragon Age takes the crown this year I think. Almost done with my second playthrough and and still having a ball, not too many games hold my attention that long.
Nameinuse Nov 24 2009, 07:21 am EST
I vote for Eufloria. Have no idea if it was released this year, but I don't care.

hilarious that i haven't played a single one of these games. been a while since that's happened.
Vader [STAFF] Nov 24 2009, 08:01 am EST
Actually I find it sad, rather than hilarious.
Alchi Nov 24 2009, 08:14 am EST
Why no Machinarium in the list?
Machinarium is cute.
Come on, include Machinarium....

Doomsday. Nov 24 2009, 08:50 am EST
WarHammer 40k DOW II !!!!!! but as not many ppl will vote for it i'll go for my next fav.

The Flying Rodent!!!
Barzenak42 Nov 24 2009, 08:51 am EST
I might pick Dragonage except I am holding off till xmas to start it. Risen is my pick but Batman is a close 2nd as I really enjoyed that one.
GrgoljBlaster Nov 24 2009, 12:47 pm EST
I'd vote for PC version of Braid but it's not in the list :( Batman or Dragon age? Not sure, both are great. On second opinion, Brutal legend is awesome but since I've only played first 30 minutes or so (on PS3 in a gaming store), I can't say if it's great 'till end. Oh well, Dragon age it is! :)

I would've tossed Halo Wars on the list simply because Ensemble's swan song was an excellent console RTS, best implementation of the genre on a console I've ever played.

It may not be Game of the Year when compared to some of the other heavy weights, but I certainly consider it the most innovative game I've played all year on the Xbox 360.

Who are the idiots voting for CoD: MW2? The game is good, but it's no where near "Game of the Year" material. Quit smoking your fan boy crack pipes and vote for a real game.

Dragon Age is wonderfully fun, just keeps dragoning me back in, Batman was very good too. Quite wonderful. Risen not bad, but seen before as a previous Gothic title.
MW2...sheesh, you people.
optimus slime Nov 25 2009, 10:22 am EST
List is false, Batman is supposed to be first, followed closely by
I vote for recount.
