Uncharted 2- 3
Batman: Arkham Asylum- 2
Dragon Age: Origins-2
Torchlight-1
Flower-1
Infamous-1

My picks are so chalk, it's not funny. =(
 
Right here we go then:

Demon's Souls - 3

Persona 4 - 2
Uncharted 2 - 1
Batman Arkham Asylum - 1
Flower - 1
Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram - 1
Patapon 2 - 1


I feel like a lot of people have forgotten Persona 4 came out in Europe this year, hence my weighting to it as this is the year when I played it. As expected with this format, any portable choices I would have made totally get the bum end with Patapon 2 just creeping on when I'd like to have listed Giana Sisters DS, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite and Half-Minute Hero in there. Old system again next year please, especially due to the sheer amount of awesome shit planned for 2010 so early on.
 
Left 4 Dead 2 - 3
Brutal Legend - 2
The Beatles: Rock Band - 2
Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City - 2
Forza Motorsport III - 1

POSMENS
Trials HD
Halo 3: ODST
Splosion Man
Peggle Deluxe
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

And for the record, another vote against this points system.

I hope you enjoyed your little rebellion, irritant. But remember, what SHODAN gives she is more than able to take away.

I don't agree with the points system as I said many pages ago. I created my top 10 just like any other year. I assigned points just so that Persona 4 gets 2...

  1. uncharted 2 - 3
  2. Persona 4 - 2
  3. Infamous - 1
  4. Demon's Souls - 1
  5. Street Fighter 4 - 1
  6. Fl0wer - 1
  7. Assassins creed 2 - 1
  8. Plants vs zombies - not good enough for the new points system
  9. Retro game challenge - not good enough for the new points system
  10. Half minute hero - not good enough for the new points system

fake edit: yes it's Persona 4 PAL people...

Sorry, but does Bayonetta count since it came out in some western markets last year?

I'm also debating whether to include Ryu ga Gotoku 3, or vote for Yakuza 3 for this year (or maybe both?).

Haven't played that many 2009 games this year (so 2010 should be great), but two games comes too mind.

Batman: AA - 3 points
Torchlight - 2 points
 

Gen X

Trust no one. Eat steaks.
Ok, I've read the rules. I'm in NZ but the game I am giving 3 votes for is a US Import since it won't be out in NZ till later this year, if at all. Rest are available in retail or as digital download.

Demon's Souls PS3 - 3
Trials HD XBLA- 2
Ninja Gaiden 2 X360- 2
Shadow Complex XBLA- 2
Uncharted 2 PS3 - 1

Thanks for putting in the time for this.

only 2009 releases (played lots of 2008 games in the past year)

New Super Mario Bros. Wii - 2
Ratchet&Clank: Crack in Time - 2
Mario & Luigi RPG 3 - Bowser's Inside Story - 2

Killzone 2 - 1
The Beatles - Rock Band - 1
Batman Arkham Assylum - 1
Street Fighter IV - 1
 
I just want to chime in and say that anybody who has NOT tried Demon's Souls yet should do so before the voting deadline. I had not played it until just recently and it is undeniably a top contender. Find this game and buy it!

Borderlands - 1 point
Patapon 2 - 1 point
FIFA 10 - 1 point
Red Faction - 1 point

Was actually hard for me to pick a GOTY this year. There were lots of games that I enjoyed but nothing that really stood out like in years past. Ended up giving DA: O the top nod since the only real downside was too many of the quests being padded out with filler / repetitive combat. 'Splosion Man and Battlefield 1943 were the two that ended up being just outside of the points.

If it was released last year in your region, or you imported it, you're free to list it. A few people have listed Bayonetta already.
 
Little King's Story - 2
Muramasa - 2
Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box - 2
Punch-Out!! - 1
Gyromancer - 1
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon - 1
Mad World - 1
 
Okay, I've finally come up with my list. I just wanna make sure though...episodic games such as Tales of Monkey Island are being counted as a combination of all episodes, right? If so, then my list is as follows:

3 Points:
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

2 Points:
Tales of Monkey Island
Batman Arkham Asylum


1 Point:
Demon's Souls
New Super Mario Brothers Wii
Patapon 2

Yep, your list looks good from here. Let me know via PM if you end up using your last point or not.

Assassin's Creed II - 3 points

Forza 3 - 2 points
Batman Arkham Asylum - 1 point
Shadow Complex - 1 point
Killzone 2 - 1 point
 
3 Points - Prinny Can I Really Be The Hero?
2 Points - Plants vs Zombies
2 Points - Dissidia Final Fantasy
1 Point - Peggle Itouch
1 Point - Chuzzle Itouch

Games I wish I had a chance to play but didn't
- Eufloria
- Mini Ninjas
- Batman

Well there you go. Prinny is by far and away the winner here for me. I LOVED it even though I never beat it :( But the fact that the levels change depending on the order in which you pick them still gave me plenty of playtime. Also looks like I somewhat of a popcap whore :/ Not even sure if Chuzzle for the app store came out this year but I'll just say it did (if not then just cross it off). I love me some Chuzzle and Peggle just feels right on my touch.

2010 GOTY? Prinny 2 with my much needed baby mode :D

I've had a blast with handhelds this year. Although I didn't buy many new DS games, compared to before, PSP has really been awesome;


So here is my handheld only list: 1 point for each game:

Patapon 2
Half Minute Hero
Dragon Quest V
Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
Little Big Planet
LocoRoco 2
PixelJunk Monsters: Deluxe
Dissidia Final Fantasy
Phantasy Star Portable
Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble

(I do have all consoles too, but I figure these get enough attention in the GOTY thread.)
