    All of you people who played it and don't have Crackdown somewhere in your list should be ashamed. It deserves to be in there somewhere.

    I feel bad, because I didn't vote for Mass Effect because I didn't get a chance to play it until Jan 1st. Oh well, my list still stands.

    Games completed recently: Dragon's Crown, Knights of Pen and Paper, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (20th time), Defender's Quest, The Witcher

    Yeah. He seemed kind of unimpressive when I'd first heard of him. "He drinks coffee? That's his schtick?"

    I had no idea how rad he'd end up.

    [Yet another episode of Phoenix Wright!]
    As much as I want to like the Ace Attorney series, by virtue of it being at a detective game in lawyer game's clothing, I could not manage to play past the first trial without becoming irreparably pissed off. Everything that annoyed me in the first two games was back in force for a third outing. I know that asking a Capcom series to change between games is like asking a child to stop flicking the light switch on and off while you're working, but it's not like I'm asking for Mr. Wright to consider a career change to spaceman and swap his lawyer's badge for a photon shotgun; the things that render Ace Attorney unenjoyable for me are easily fixed by hiring someone who can write.

    Throughout the series, Ace Attorney has been convinced that I am a cretin. I am apparently unable to read the protaganist's emotions from his dialogue without the help of pages upon pages of "thought bubbles". I apparently can not solve even the simplest of puzzles without the walls of blue text practically screaming the solutions at me, and I also can not, apparently, remember what the puzzles even are without a legion of blue words or a series of unskippable "subtle" pointers from my cretin of an assistant. I have played through the first two games in the series with the uneasy feeling that Capcom expects me to trip at every hurdle and so, rather than providing a means of progressing for those who do get stuck, they decided to remove the hurdles entirely, and replaced those sections of the track with mile-long sections of empty space, turning the game into a damned marathon.

    It took me a while to take that joke to the finish line, as it were, but I got there.

    I am severely disheartened by the lack of Metroid Prime 3 on most lists. The slow sales, combined with the lukewarm critical reception...

    I didn't realize 90/100 on Metacritic was lukewarm.

    I thought we weren't supposed to pay attention to the number anymore? :D

    2. Portal (PC, PS3, 360)
    3. Halo 3 (360)
    4. Rock Band (360, PS3)

    6. Zack and Wiki (Wii)

    8. Call of Duty 4 (360, PS3, PC)
    9. World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade (PC)
    10. Wario Ware: Smooth Moves (Wii)

    Why? Because I play old used games because I'm poor. Most of those listed above were played at a friends or borrowed.

    There are a lot of really good games I simply couldnt' put on my list, because I haven't played them.

    I have a 360 on the way to me(hopefully, fucking Canada post) so I'll get to catch up.

    As it is:

    1. Super Mario Galaxy
    2. Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow
    3. Bioshock
    4. HL2 Ep2
    5. Metroid Prime 3
    6. Mario Strikers Charged
    7. Portal
    8. Supreme Commander

    Compltely forgot to put pokemon diamond/pearl in at 9. List was almost too long, I know I missed another game or 2.

    It made me realize that while I still play my DS, I really need to catch up on some of the games for it, I haven't bought a DS game since Pearl, The Wii, and now 360 has been eating my moneys.

    Wow, I was going to post how sad it was that of that list of games I have only played 11. But then I see some of you guys posting 3 or 5 games and I somehow don't feel so bad..

    Still, so many of the games on that list that I wish I had played that I know I probably never will. :(

    I kept scrolling past games that I want to play, I just don't have infinite money.

    And of course this year I bought and played stuff like Twilight Princess, FFXII, etc.

    These were my 11, I think in the order I voted them in (closed page before noticing everyone was posting their list.
    Super Mario Galaxy (Wii) - own
    Guitar Hero 3 (PS2, PS3, 360, Wii, PC) - own
    Mario Strikers Charged (Wii) - own
    Rock Band (360, PS3) - friends
    Mario Party 8 (Wii) - own
    Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games (Wii, DS) - friends
    Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer (PC) - own
    Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars (PC,360) - demo/friends
    Halo 3 (360) - friends
    Beautiful Katamari (360) - friends
    Wii Play (Wii) - own

    I actually own FF12, but I haven't played it yet. It's still in the wrapping actually. My brother-in-law got it for me for Christmas, despite the fact that (I believe) he is well aware (or should be) that I do not own a PS2. The reason he should know this? My wife talked to both him and her sister (his wife) about how she bought me GH2 for PS2 and couldn't find the receipt when she realized she needed to return it and buy GH3 for the Wii. (funny side note: while she was talking to the clerk over the phone trying to find a copy of GH3, she kept asking for the PS3 on the Wii instead of GH3) Poor guy must have been so confused..

    to avoid thinking hard and comparing specific games, i will just go with game than entranced me the most and held my attention for the longest time

    so my choice would have to be halo 3

    oh wait was pokemon P/D released this year?

    then maybe pokemon, close call

    Jeez, I didn't even play 10 games this year, apparently.

    Top three:
    1. Halo 3 (360)
    2. Bioshock (360, PC)
    3. Persona 3 (PS2)

    Odin Sphere came close to edging Persona 3 out, though.

    I'd certainly hope so. And if you expect a video game to be more amusing than an orgasms you have some unrealistic expectations.

    Dude, that game has given me so much joy. SO MUCH JOY. This is *the* game to play at my friends' houses with DS now and we have huge tourneys and what not. I *loved* Mario Galaxy but in pure gameplay, almost nothing beats out Worms.

    This year was a year of unique/fun gameplay rather than continuing series/graphics I found interesting
