Post Your Game(s) of the Year
So, the GOTY lists have been popping up recently, and I was wondering what everyone's personal favorites were.

So, how about every posts ONE game from each system.

Here's mine

Wii: Skyward Sword - It's the only game I played on my Wii this year, but it's also one of the best games I've played over all my systems this year. I'm really enjoying it.

3DS: Super Mario Land 3D - This was a tough choice, especially since I haven't played much of the game yet, but I know I'll love this as I find more time to play it.

PS3: Uncharted 3 - I didn't even have to think about this game. This game just blew my away again and again. There were points when I didn't think it would get crazier, but it just kept one-upping itself throughout the entire campaign.

360: Battlefield 3 - I almost picked Gears 3, but realized that I've played a ton of BF3's multiplayer. It's typical Battlefield, but that's what's great about it.

PC/Mac: Portal 2 - Of course. Didn't even think to add a Mac game, and I forgot this came out in 2011. Thanks Schmete!

Hmm, okay, let's see...

Wii: Skyward Sword - Haven't played much on Wii this year but what I've played of this game so far is really good. Loving the story, controls, gameplay, music, etc.

3DS: Mario Kart 7 - My favorite Mario Kart game yet (not the ultimate Mario Kart, but the best one so far IMO) and my most played 3DS title. Lots of fun, the new courses and items are great, and online play is intense. I love playing in the NintendoFuse community as well.

Playstation 3: Infamous 2 though I had more time spent in Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3, Disgaea 4, and Uncharted 3 most likely. I guess I liked how direct and intense infamous 2 was compared t the other games which had tons more replay value.

3DS: Doctor Lautrec has been the funnest though rather difficult. I dont think there were any remarkable 3DS games this year though, its been a pretty bleak, barren, and dull first year.

Batman: Arkham City was definitely my game of the year. So good.

Skyward Sword, Infamous 2 and Battlefield 3 all came close as my GOTY though. They are pretty great.

It is so tough to figure out how to judge this. Do I go with what I think was the best game designed? Do I go with the one that did well with sales? Do I go with the one that looks amazing? Do I go with the one that has a great concept?

Essentially, what I decided on is the game(s) that gave me the most fun while playing them. On that ONE criteria alone, here are mine:

Wii: Zelda
3DS: Mario Kart 7 (close 2nd is Mario 3D Land)
DS: De Blob 2

Had you played OoT before the 3D version?

Hmmm,

PS3: Catherine - Nifty little title I never expected to enjoy considering it's very Japanese theme and artistic direction, but it ended up being one of those 'console exclusives' that I enjoyed a LOT.

360: Dead Space 2 - Really the only new title I've played on the 360 this year. Fantastic game, but definitely not goty material.

PC: Skyrim/Arkham City/Deus Ex/Portal 2/Witcher 2 - This one game per console thing simply doesn't apply.

Wii: Skyward Sword - Not that there was... any competition whatsoever.

I know. I think Kirby might have been the only other big one, and I'm not sure how well it did. I don't know anyone who talks about playing it.

So many endings. I liked the soundtrack, definitely Shoji Meguro is one of my favorite composers. I hope they use that games engine for a future game (persona 5)

A game I wish I had time to try.

Haha, whatever, the rules aren't strictly enforced. I haven't played Witcher 2, and I've only played a few hours of Skyrim, but that's a great list. Deus Ex was surprisingly good. I really wasn't sure what to expect when I got that.

Yeah, but I didn't get too far. I completed the 3DS version though.

Multiplatform titles being on Best of platform lists have always seemed odd to me.

Yeah that is a good one. It would take me awhile to think of best exclusive this year.

Tonight I'm going to start a new play through of my GOTY '11, Uncharted 3. Not sure if I'll finish before I head back to school on Tuesday, but whatever.
