Oh, 2010 for EU. Pfft

Nice to see SSFIV make the top 20.

Can't wait to start ME2 as soon as I finish FFXIII

MGS4 and ME2 won GAF GOTY awards. If anything it proves GAF likes to think that they like 'smart' games.

I'll agree with this part...

This is just a hodgepodge of games that had big marketing budgets.

...but not so much this part. Super Meat Boy was an indie game, Lara Croft was an under-the-radar download title, and I remember lack of marketing being blamed for why Just Cause 2 and Vanquish bombed at retail. Maybe the rest of them though...

I wish I had played GT5 before I voted. GT5 with a force feedback wheel is one of the most rich gaming experiences ever. The amount of focus and skill required is incredible, and the amount of content is unprecedented. I love it. The whole experience is compulsive for me.

Did you happen to see that he posted a link to the 2007 GOTY list before saying what you responded to with the bolded? He wasn't talking about this year's list being a hodgepodge of games with large marketing budgets. He was talking about 2007.

Worth pointing out to those who dislike the new system that Ranks 1 - 18 would be exactly the same according to the Amirox (10, 9, 8,...) scale.

Surprising it got 10th, since the game is massively flawed. But considering the mammoth OT, there is still a large fanbase for fine racing gameplay.

GT5 is the antidote for Heavy Rain.

Thank god my vote was split perfectly. 2 PS3 games, 2 360 games, and 2 multi-plat games. Of course, it wasn't on purpose... or was it?

Happy to see Bayonetta in 4th and winning its genre award. Also pleased about Amnesia winning best horror and Vanquish winning best shooter, though I would have liked to see it higher in the top 20. Super Meat Boy winning best downloadable game is nice too.

ME2 and RDR are the only ones in the top 10 I haven't played yet so can't really comment on them. Guess I need to check them out.

Thank you to cheeemeister and timetokill for putting the work in!

edit: damn, no dead rising 2 anywhere. ouch :-/

Oops, I didn't bother to click through that link because I thought he was just linking back to the OP. Seems kind of a stupid assumption to make now that I think about it...

They didn't really update the first game enough, honestly. I had SC2 on my list, but I put Civ V higher. It was simply a better game, and was more improved over its predecessor IMO.

JSON is a wonderful format. Anyway, don't worry about it. I'll do it once I'm off work.

As for how many people would use it? At least one (me).

Bayonetta over GoW3 is pretty shocking i still haven't opened my bayonetta copy yet, just haven't had the time.

Completely random, but it'd be interesting to know which Gaffer's personal picks matched closest to the collective result. We can then send this person as a GAF ambassador when the alien mothership arrives.
