Well now, let me think... I'm not going to number them, since, off the top of my head, I'm not entirely sure I CAN name ten.

Fire Emblem: Awakening

TMNT: Out of the Shadows

GTA Online

Tomb Raider

MGR: Revengeance

Monster Hunter 3U

Army of Two: TDC

Batman: AO Blackgate

Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate

For the top spot, it would really be a toss up between Monster Hunter, Ninja Turtles and Fire Emblem.

I'm not including next gen games either because I don't have one although WiiU titles this year could be running for GotY on websites.

Glad that fire emblem is showing up in so many lists. That game has eaten up so much of my life this year

#18 Edited by El_Zo1212o (6029 posts) -

@UpInFlames: Wasn't Sanctum 2 that TD/FPS hybrid? If so, I don't know how that made the list. my brother and I played it for one day and were both disgusted we'd spent money on it.

#19 Posted by ReddestSkies (4087 posts) -

List threads suck.

That said, The Swapper and Antichamber are awesome, and I really, really want to play Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes (I own it and all, but can't play it yet due to an XCOM: EW addiction and a general lack of free time).

#20 Edited by ZZoMBiE13 (22911 posts) -

In no particular order:

  • Dead Rising 3
  • XCOM: Enemy Within
  • Dead Rising 3
  • Forza Motorsport 5
  • Dead Rising 3
  • The Last of Us
  • Dead Rising 3
  • Animal Crossing: New Leaf
  • Dead Rising 3
  • Injustice: Gods Among Us

  • The Stanley Parable
  • And finally, Dead Rising 3

Again, no particular order.

If it wasn't obvious enough, it made the list because I thought it was a great game.

@ dvader654

I actually prefer those, I came to gamespot to learn, and I found the best way to do that was through conflict, its good to put your ideas out there and have them challenged, thats how I learn.

#30 Edited by Planeforger (15790 posts) -

List threads aren't all bad. This one just reminded me how many awesome games I have in my backlog (The Swapper, Brothers, DMC, Gone Home, Pikmin 3, Europa Universalis IV, etc.).

Anyway, off the top of my head (and maybe not in order):

  • Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (I certainly did not expect this one to rival the best of the 2D games)
  • The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1
  • Antichamber
  • The Stanley Parable
  • Civ V: Brave New World
  • Rayman Legends
  • Super Luigi U
  • The Wonderful 101
  • Sword of the Stars: The Pit
  • Monaco: What's Yours is Mine

Although I suspect that Super Mario 3D World will quickly rise to the top of that list once it comes out on Saturday (Australia, yay).

Honourable mentions to AC4, Tomb Raider, Pokemon X/Y, GTA V, and a bunch of other really solid titles that I enjoyed...but which failed to leave a huge impression on me.

#31 Posted by Lulu_Lulu (13598 posts) -

@ Planeforger

Actually none of them Are bad. I just like arguing and it just doesn't work for list threads.

#32 Edited by VintAge68 (417 posts) -

I know I should have played GTA V (while I'm still waiting for the PC edition), so perhaps there won't be one specific GOTY for me this year; however, I am sure to have Battlefield 4 and The Last Of Us on this year's list.

#33 Edited by Some-Mist (5630 posts) -

1. dodonpachi saidaioujou

2. dragon's crown
