Didn't bother to participate but lol at ME2. I put over 70 hours into it in insanity, got 99% of the achievements and it is certainly not GOTY for me.

Good idea.

Well, at least my GOTY (Picross 3D) won one of the categories (Puzzle Game of the Year)...

Congrats to Mass Effect 2 which was my GOTY as well.

Looking at that list just reminds me how awesome 2010 was in terms of games.

I find it hilarious that none of the top 25 overall were in my list (though a couple - RDR, Nier - probably would have been if I had been able to play them more). Never has my disconnect from the overall gaming community been more apparent.

It's great to see that my vote for Project Diva 2nd propelled it to a well-deserved Handheld Rhythm Game of the Year! :lol

The year Starcraft 2 took 8th place on a 'hardcore' game forum.

Given GAF's general bias towards consoles I'm actually quite happy that it made it to 8th.

Surprised? Heavy Rain is a atmospheric immersive experience with lackluster gameplay, goes in line with goty and second place.

I find it interesting how it includes links to my other posts in the thread, too. It's also interesting to compare it to the final results. I was the only one to vote for Zen Bound 2 or Frogatto, and the only other person to vote for Photo Dojo put it in the exact same rank as I did.

Disappointed that ME2 beat out RDR, but looking at the numbers it was pretty close. I haven't played ME2 yet, but I thought the first one was just okay. I guess I'll see, when I do play it, whether the win was deserved or not.

Glad to see one game in the top 10 that I enjoyed.

Good jobs on the stats, although I wish the main list had the number of votes for each game. I think I was the only one to vote for Sakura Wars and Rune Factory 3 :lol

edit: Nevermind, it's all in the downloadable folder. Incredible amount of data in there. Great job.

edit2: congrats Atelier Rorona for squeaking into the top 150!

Demon's Souls only had PAL land allowed to vote for it, as it was out elsewhere in 2009.

I'm kind of interested where you're coming from with this, could you elaborate?

This year, large portions of NeoGAF appreciated high-octane, action-oriented games of moderate depth that don't take themselves too seriously.

1. Mass Effect 2 1302
2. Red Dead Redemption 1174
3. Super Mario Galaxy 2 904
4. Bayonetta 697
5. God of War III 588
8. StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty 441
9. Super Meat Boy 396
11. Donkey Kong Country Returns 371
15. Alan Wake 325
16. Vanquish 325
17. Super Street Fighter IV 306
19. Just Cause 2 210
20. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light 204

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=222830

This is just a hodgepodge of games that had big marketing budgets (which, to be fair, could also be said of this list; it's just not the ONLY thing that could be said of it). You couldn't make marketplace bets based on it.
