Good list. I have been debating doing one myself over the past couple of days, but.... truth is, my perspective of time is so warped at this point I'm not even sure what came out this year... and on top of that I'm not even sure I really liked 10 games enough this year to remember them, ha ha ha. SSF4 and Deadly Prem are the only things I can really think of, and I wouldn't have even remembered Deadly Prem was THIS year if it wasn't on a couple of my friend's lists, ha ha ha. Actually, Another M WAS really good, I just kind of forgot about it. I liked Samus' characterization, I still don't understand all the pissing and moaning about it.
" @Hailinel: Yup, there's no wrong way to like games. You didn't spoil Other M. I always read the endings to games that I don't like. "Yeah, I do the same thing. Though if you don't mind my asking, what didn't you like about it?
Not exactly a fan of any of the games on this list but hey no big deal.
What a great list.
Even though I didn't have the time to experience any of the games on your list expect Trauma Team and FFXIII, I can totally understand how different can someone be compared to other people's choices; be it their RPGs or their favorite FPSs.
It's nice to see some change :D.
I enjoyed WarioWare: D.I.Y. as well. I was thinking about including that in my top 10.
" @Hailinel: I'm actually not a huge fan of Fallout 2, all things considered. The pacing is agonizingly slow, some of the nerd culture references are fairly cringe-worthy (So, how many Monty Python references can we shove in this game because it's 1998 and we think we're funny?), and I generally think it hasn't aged especially well in spots. Never finished it though. First game is better, but both are kind of overrated in the general pantheon of Western RPGs. And yeah. I play old games partially because I don't have a steady source of income and partially because I can cherry pick the best games (mostly RPGs) of yesteryear instead of picking from a slate of derivative First Person Shooters and what have you. Still need to play Bayonetta and Darksiders though... "I never beat Fallout 2, either, and I never played much of the first game. Actually, come to think of it, I'm not sure why I keep giving the games a shot. I bought Fallout 1&2 in a dual-pack back when I was in college and gave them both a shot back then. Then I tried Fallout 3 and really didn't like it much at all. Then New Vegas came along, and I stupidly decided to try it and immediately ran into a biblical plague of bugs. Why do I this to myself?
Considering how many times I have seen you defend Other M on these forums, I would have been surprised if you had picked anything else. However, I think it's also telling that I haven't played a single game on your list (Well, Persona 3 obviously, but not P3P). Ah well. Different Strokes and all that.
V. nice list, unique and you can see the personality in it. I also quite enjoyed FFXIII and DP and have put them in my list as well. A lot of those games routinely get undeserved hate, I'm looking at you FFXIII, Metroid, Gran Turismo, and Samurai Warriors.
If you had Lost Planet 2 in there I think Giant Bomb would put you on a most wanted list or something.
I haven't played Other M, actually, I haven't played any game on your list. Maybe I'm more of a traditional gamer than I thought. I did play Endless Ocean: Blue World, so there is hope.
" Hell yes, Other M. "Damn right.
" Why do I feel like you and I are the only people who defend both Other M and Final Fantasy XIII? "Possibly. It's been a very weird year for games for me.
