World of Warcraft Cataclysm.

An unpopular opinion I know but it was my favorite expansion for all sorts of reasons and the last time I truly had fun with the game.


Shame for forgetting yakuza 3 OP.

My top List:

Bad company 2
God of war 3
Gran Turismo 5
Just Cause 2
Yakuza 3

Great year for me. Most played games ^ ^ ^
Super Mario Galaxy 2
Transformers: War for Cybertron
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom

Donkey Kong Country Returns is also great but the waggle controls kinda ruined it for me.


Your cataclysm screenshot seems to be from wotlk

For me it was :

SC2 wol
Mario galaxy 2
Civ 5

A rather poor year overall tbh


Mass Effect 2, closely followed by Red Dead Redemption. Those are the top two games not just of that year but of that generation.
Man, what a strong year! My favorite was Super Mario Galaxy 2, but it faced some very stiff competition

Red Dead Redemption
Donkey Kong Country Returns
Deadly Premonition


Mass Effect 2 easily, best of the new format bioware dialog wheel games. While I still miss the infinity engine stuff, I still enjoyed the hell out of this. The last RPG I think I replayed fully after completion.

Darksiders is also notable, it's my favorite 3d zelda style game.


Halo: Reach is definitely my favorite from that year, I put in an insane amount of hours into that game. Civ 5 is a close-ish second.
Ooh, we got a lot of good stuff that I've played. New Vegas is probably my favorite, but I have to give nods to Bayonetta, Just Cause 2, Pokemon HeartGold, Civilization V, Rock Band 3, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and Sin & Punishment 2.
This was a really disappointing year in games for me personally. It was when GoW finally bucked me, I'm one of those rare people who thinks RDR is not the second coming, and nmh2 really hurt... Such high hopes.

bout to say I didn't have a goty but, naw, Cave Story hell yeah.
Peace Walker, considering how it's one of the few games I know I've pumped close to 200 hours into and it sits at the number 2 spot in my top 10 games of all-time.

2010 was a big year for me though. Alan Wake, Red Dead & Super Meat Boy are also in my top 10. Mass Effect 2 was in that list as well for the longest time. And Heavy Rain is one of my biggest inspirations as a creative.

But New Vegas, Halo: Reach, God of War 3. Holy smokes, what a year.


Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. The first numbered KH game since KH2 that was meant for the PS2 but things happened so it released on PSP. It delivered on so many levels.


Cock Strain, Lifetime Warranty

This. damn. game.

I've made some of the closest friends I've ever had playing VF5FS over the past 5 years. I'm not going to even look at the list in OP, I know it's not there. Nevertheless this game is one of the most important games to me.

This picture was taken 3 days ago. VIVA VF!

Red dead redemption gets my vote.

I also loved Mass effect 2 (best in the series). I also played the hell out of peace Walker, obviously.


Fallout New Vegas
Super Mario Galaxy 2
Pac Man Championship Edition DX
Starcraft 2: WoL
Pokémon HeartGold

I refuse to choose the best because some of these are my favorite games ever.


Shit, 2012 was a good year.

A lot of those games I came across years later (specifically Platinum) so at the time it probably would have been:

Read Dead Redemption
Mass Effect 2
Pokémon HGSS
Valkyria Chronicles
WoW: Cataclysm
