1. Batman: Arkham City
Yeah, yeah, yeah I know...this is just a rehash on Arkham Asylum and lacks originality. But frankly, I don't care. Arkham Asylum was one of my favorite games of all time, and even if they re-released it this year it would probably be my GOTY. Does that make me a bad person? Maybe. But everything about this game is incredible. For me, most games reach a point where I get tired of the gameplay, and I eventually want to move on to the next game in my ever increasing backlog. However, with this and Asylum, I never got to that point. The gameplay and combat stayed fresh the whole time, and I even wish it would go on longer. My reasoning for this being my GOTY may not be reasonable, but...whatever, I fucking love this game.
