We rightly give Oblivion some heat for it's Horse Armour DLC, but it did more than make up for it with Shivering Isles, the best expansion pack of all time IMO. I don't mind DLC, as I care little for cosmetics, so I won't buy them anyway; where I have a problem though is when vital story is put behind a pay wall. I'm thinking of the Prothean Javik in the Day 1 DLC for Mass Effect 3. That is an absolutely vital character in terms of the story and lore of Mass Effect, and to make people pay for that as the game just released, is unforgivable.

@joce667 @snaggleoooo Yes, but the video said 'with the exception of the Ezio Trilogy, Assassin's Creed constantly changes location'. Even if the 3 cities of 2 and Brotherhood are all in Italy, Istanbul certainly isn't.

The Ezio Trilogy of AC DID change locations every year. It went from Venice and Florence in 2 to Rome in Brotherhood and Constantinople/Istanbul in Revelations. Venice, Florence and Rome maybe all in Italy, but you could hardly accuse them of being the same place.

Good choices. It seems Bioware have an exceptional gift for making great companions. My top 5 in no order would be Garrus, HK-47 (his speech on love in KotOR2 is brilliant), Morrigan (Dragon Age, though both Shale and Alistair are amazing too), Veronica (Fallout: New Vegas) and Drippy (Ni No Kuni).

@JRHT Agreed. For a game to get a 9 on GS and miss out on the GotY awards is weird, especially considering there's 7's on that list.

@Harbinger_CR @snaggleoooo Ok, poker might be pushing it, but darts and snooker (played on a pool- or billiard table) are definitely considered sports. My point was that you see those 'sports' on the sports TV channels.

If darts, snooker and poker get broadcast on sports channels, and are considered sports, I don't know why esports aren't. A professional Starcraft game would entail more physical exertion than any of those 'sports'.

As for my GotY, it goes to Europa Universalis IV, as no other game this year has invaded my thoughts and given me better stories (though not to the same degree as Crusader Kings 2).

Where is Europa Universalis IV? Sure, it may not be the most popular game, or be from the most popular genre, but it did receive a 9 from GS, which is better than a number of games on this list.

All sorts of excited for a Fallout 4. And considering Skyrim was formally announced at the Video Game Awards at pretty much the same date (Dec 11) as the countdown ends, I think it's a pretty good bet that the announcement will be Fallout 4.

@RussianMeatClob So much yes. Valkyria Chronicles is an absolute gem and my favourite game of this generation.
