Jade Empire number one for sure.

Mass Effect 1, Knights of the Old Republic, and Dragon Age: Inquisition (miraculously, given that I absolutely despised 1 and 2) bring up the list of "other Bioware games I think are alright". Everything else they've done I've actively disliked or outright hated playing.

Depends on if I'm doing it for an audience or not. I streamed all of Thief despite actively hating it, but dropped Puppeteer after a world and a half, because I wasn't having fun, and I wasn't playing it on a stream.

And I'm not even someone who does monetization or anything, so it's not like I can even say I made money doing it or anything. It's just fun to play not-great games in front of people, I guess.

I'll throw my hat into this ring, I suppose.

I hope to put the last 4 years of goty lists on the site soon (you guys kept those, right?),

...Eh-heh. I literally went through TODAY and deleted my lists that were in the 1-10 order in favor of keeping the ones in the 10-1 order. Whoops.

Also I think this year is the year so far that I've been the most out of touch with common consensus, with a whopping zero out of 10 games on my list in the aggregated top 10, my top three garnering postion 50, 38, and 26, respectively, as well as the fact that I've only played 3 of the games on the actual top 10, due to not really having that much interest in the rest.

If anything, I'd say that's a good thing though. I'd say that means that there was more diversity this year than most people give credit, and that there was enough quality to go around.

Although if you will excuse me, I'm going to sit in a corner being incredibly angry that somehow The Last of Us beat D4 by a single point. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrghhh.

The correct answer, for me, anyway, is Murdered: Soul Suspect. I love mysteries, detective stories, crime stories, etc, and I could look past the gameplay if the mystery... held up in any way, shape, or form. But good heavens, that mystery is not only fundamentally terrible, but it breaks so many important rules of mystery fiction that the summation at the end is just laughably terrible.

I'm getting re-angry about it all over again. Ugh.

Loading Video...

There is a lot of this video that I really enjoy. From Ryan's deadpan reactions to a lot of this game's silliness ("So tell me about sucking up balls, Jeff.") to Jeff absolutely freaking out when a dead body suddenly rolls over, this is one to be remembered.

James Spader is easily among my favorite actors, and holy cow, does he know how to play a fantastic villain. Very excited for this.

I have to say, I am actually shockingly impressed by this game. I played through a decent chunk of The Testament of Sherlock Holmes and wasn't particularly impressed, but this new one is actually fantastic. I would highly recommend it if you have even a passing interest in adventure games, detectives, or Sherlock Holmes.

You know what they say, seventh time is the charm, I guess?

@solh0und: If I had to hazard a guess, I think it was Kanji, with Yukiko a very close second.
