I'm surprised number 2 isn't Iron Brigade and number 1 isn't Trenched.
dude putting magic the gathering online in your top 10 list is hilarious. Have you ever played the pokemon card gameboy game? as a designer you should show respect where it is deserved.
Never mention Event Horizon when it comes to Dead Space, Alien/Aliens is much preferred.
Except it doesn't really resemble those films at all and in fact has a bunch of similarities with Event Horizon.
Dark Souls is number 1 on my list. Trenched is also in my top 10, but Iron Brigade didn't make the cut.
Brad created a game about love, then put a masochistic game at the top of his list... Does that mean S+M = Love?
Great read anyway and I'm glad to see I'm not the only person with a pile of shame that big!
/salute for the greater love
/_ is 2011's <>
This is the best picture on the internet.
My fave list so far perhaps: a nod to Magic, props for Might & Magic CoH and a crazy pick for number one. Probably the most different list so far.
I'm glad Brad Muir has become a friend of GB.
Whens Drenched/Judy Denched coming out?
Yeah, Dark Souls and Clash of Heroes!
Ever tried World of Warcraft Trading Card Game? It's like Magic but, IMHO, way deeper, more balanced and fun. At least around the release of the 8:th expansion when I unfortunately lost access to my regular playmates. Man, if only there was an (good, legal) online version of that...
Someone needs to put Trenched and Iron Brigade on there list.
effin' great write-up. rises the word-count & IQ demands on these pages by a factor of 10.
pile of shame.
The image for Brad is wonderful... also that is cool to see that dark souls at the top of the list
Man, I need to play Dark Souls. I'd like to finish Demon's Souls first. Maybe I should stop that and play this one instead...
Brad, you should see some of the faces I get when I drop that I actually enjoy Magic: The Gathering. It's actually gotten to the point where I don't even mention that time of my life to people unless I know them really, really well.
You're a brave man for coming out of the M:tG closet.
I bought Dark Souls like 2 months ago when Target had a 2 for 1 and still haven't had time/desire to take it out of the wrapper. Fair to say, I still haven't opened the other 2 games I got then either (F1 2011 and Uncharted 3). These past 2 lists have convinced me I need to open it up sooner rather than later.
As far as I recall it was Battlefield 2142 which introduced the leveling meta game in first person shooters. Credit where credit is due
Honestly I wish that Brad Muir worked at GiantBomb.com.
They should at least do a quicklook a month with the guy.
Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes came out in 2010, which makes it unfortunate that it didn't win anything that year. It really is a fantastic game.
Finally some love for Dark Souls!
I'm really glad he talked about how LoL is "free-to-play done right." You could play it for years without ever spending a dime, but it's so fun and addicting you actually want to drop a few dollars on it here and there.
As someone who absolutely loves the two "Souls" games I find the comment about the first one being harsher a bit confusing. I thought that one had a much clearer structure and easier goals in general. Well, IF you figured out that you're supposed to switch between worlds instead of trying to bash your head against one until you finish all three sections. Also some really useful rings and regeneration equipment early on in that one.
I'm know a lot more interest in playing Dark Souls, crazy how certain people you don't know at all can influence your decisions.
Wow.. Some love for clash of heroes.. That game gets more grief than it deserves.
dark souls at #1 just earned brad muir a million respect souls/points
Fuckin A Dark Souls!

Brad Muir is awesome
No million dollar pyramid?
Weirds me out that you refer to competitive multiplayer as "PvP". I know it's right to say so, but man. I'm guessing you grew up with MMOs or something? Great list though. I just got into Magic recently myself with MTG 2012 and ended up buying a few too many cards... that shit is expensive.
IN YOUR FACE RYAN AND JEFF!
Nice list B-Rad 2
Ok. Someone has said Dark Souls. I can die in peace?
I remember meeting Brad Muir after the Trenched TNT and talking about League of Legends with him. He told me "If Trenched is a game about love, League of Legends is a game about hate."
Weird. I also hated Demon's Souls (what I saw/heard of it) but Dark Souls always intrigued me...and when I tried it out I actually enjoyed it a lot.
Oh Mista Mooear I found myself sucked into LoL as well.
MTG AND DARK SOULS? I FUCKING LOVE YOU BRAD!!!
Nice list Brad!
Love that he put LoL on that list. Really got into it this year it's fab.
I wish someone would make a console downloadable Moba like it.
Watch that Conduit 2 ending!
Glad to see some other views, brad m has great taste. Similarly to vinny, whichevet game hooked him and didnt let go got goty.
More Dark Souls loving! WOO!

What a silly thing to say. Even if there is sarcasm, it comes off as incredibly snide towards the other guests.
Does it? I was more going for tongue-in-cheek than sarcasm actually, and in any case I'm fairly certain the other guests (as well as GB staff) are used to people having different tastes in games than they do.
Lighten up duder.
