I've probably played a grand total of 5 new games this year. In fact I haven't played a large portion of the top 10 games that have come out in the past 3 years.
I imagine a lot of people's lists boil down to "the games that I've played" rather than a real top 10 list, that's not to say there wasn't a point in my life that I played a little too many of the games that came out.
So... having said that, my top 5 games of the year are, by default:
1: Dark Souls 2
2: Super Smash Bros for the 3DS
4. Tamagotchi Life
5. WWE Supercard
