    Why is it December 23rd and we dont have an uber thread dedicated to our top picks for the coveted Game Of The Year title? Please participate!!


    Borderlands has been my favorite game all year, hands down. Well over 15 hrs of gameplay, a healthy mix of shooter and rpg, and excellent replay value.

    Prototype was my previous vote as it's open world play, excellent side missions, and crazy game development sucked me in for well over 30 hours. Jumping from 100 story buildings and gliding what seems like miles never gets old. It's graphics may have been a touch weak, but it was for all platforms.

    I'm expecting to see Dirt 2, Batman, RE5, Dragon Age, and many others. Please nominate your favorite game of the entire 2009 year. :toast:

    I'm going to have to say Left For Dead 2, simply because you can never kill enough zombies!

    Oh, it's not me Mr. MailMan. I would never vote for the game. But you damn well know all of those "jounalistic publications", magazines, review sites will. It's sold the most, people love the game, it will get the nod.:ohwell:

    I don't have a vote on the game of the year, but would call Mysteries of Westgate (NWNII) the best expansion of the year.

    Torchlight: frenzy diablo-esque action-rpg. No complications, only addictive mousebashing, can run in every hardware since pIII 800 and geforce 2 and the launch price is great (20 $/€). Until diablo 3 arrives it calms down my action-rpg addiction :)

    My game of the year would be Saints Row 2, got me back into gaming again and ate 2 weeks of my life (I've only just bought GTA IV, can't play it until tomorrow).
    Arkham Asylum was good but got quite repetitive, so I'd say that inFamous takes the prize from me, large amount of variation, good difficulty curve and brilliant to just take out your anger on some bad guys!

    The Sims 3 or Tropico 3, especially The Sims 3. It is leaps and bounds better than the first two and those remain the best selling games of all time.


    Saints Row 2 is a 2008 game.

    I haven't had enough time to play to make a decision on GOTY :(

    Therefore, I am instead nominating FordGT90Concept's NetTools 2 as UOTY (Utility of the Year).
    (You can find it in the General Software section ... It's free !!)

    I was able to pay with half of my liver, much less expensive.

    I second Modern Warfare II.

    Borderlands if it has to be a game released this year, If I can just vote for my favorite game played through 2009, it would have to go to Team Fortress 2.

    Its actually more of a Baldurs Gate I/II clone but still not really a clone at all, just a few similarities.

    PC: Borderlands, Dragon Age: Origin, Dirt 2, NFS: Shift, Aion, Street Fighter IV and would be Left4Dead 2 if it wasn't for the crappy Australian restrictions to make it a shithouse game (my personal preference).

    Indie: Braid, World Of Goo (Linux/JP Version), Machinarium, Eufloria

    PS3: Uncharted II, Little Big Planet, Metal Gear Solid 4, Assassin Creed II

    Xbox 360: Forza 3, Fable 2, Gears of War II, Assassin Creed II

    Wii: Nothing... oh wait... Madworld is good.

    DS: Scribblenauts

    PSP: Little Big Planet, Resistance: Retribution, Motorstorm
