GOD FUCKING DAMNIT, GIANT BOMB... I had posted a pretty lengthy response, only the site went and ate the bloody thing up...

So basically, I hated the story and the writing; loved the gameplay; wished the balance of story and gameplay was more like XCOM; I'm excited for Code Name: Steam; fuck Leon the mechanic; cool to see you on here writing again. Fin.

Saints Row 3/4 has the best character creation. You can change your gender and race at will, you can make yourself a fat dude or buff lady, and you can pick from a whole bunch of outfits. I made a surprisingly good Maj. Kusanagi lookalike. I don't know any other games that let you change your character on the fly like that.

Saints Row 2's character customisation is vastly superior to the latter two. You could even customise your walking animation.

Anywhoo as others have mentioned, Dragon's Dogma is probably some of my favourite non-MMO character creation tools I've come across. It's not often that a game allows you to independently customise your arms and legs.

Saints Row 2 has the best character creation tool that I've ever come across and also the widest variety of body types I've ever seen. I've never seen a game allow for such a range between very thin to very fat bodies and I can only imagine that this is very hard to do because most games only allow for a very narrow range in body types.

Yup. The lack of variable body types was something I particularly disliked about SRTT/SRIV's character creator. Even with your muscle percentage at zero your character still looked pretty damn beefy.

I've found that I don't necessarily care about what gets what award or whatever from official outlets, but I'm still interested in reading people's lists anywhoo. I also enjoy writing one up myself as a means for me to then reflect on the year overall.

I've wanted to see Die Hard: Arcade get ported to a more modern machine for the longest time... I don't doubt that it's probably kinda bad even, but boy did I love that game. One of the few games I actually played on an Arcade machine.

I knew Drakengard 3 was your #1 pick because you had already said so in that Best Soundtrack of the Year thread ;) Also, I too picked up on the bard playing Origins' credits theme, which was a neat little throwback. Game still sucks, though.

Jeff himself created the Street Fighter II franchise page, but yeah, the topic in general concerning games getting multiple pages per release, if not its own franchise page, has always been up in the air with no concrete rule set. Though I think because of how truly big SFII got, I'd say it's fair it had gotten itself a franchise page. SFII itself was the brand more so than Street Fighter.

Crash Bandicoot 2 & Warped are still brilliant platformers to this day! While I had already played them plenty back when I was a wee cherub, I had gone back to 2 again this year and 100%'d it again! CTR is also still a lot of fun, though the lack of animation with the racers--and not to mention the variety of karts--leaves the presentation with a little something to be desired. I do like how Polar Bear looks like a goddamned psycho, though.

Any reason why you never gave Warped a try?

I'm sad Twinsanity never got as sequel, as brilliant as the old games were, I feel that that new one was really underrated.

The writing and the humour in general was top notch, but the gameplay itself was pretty lacking I'd say. Had a really good soundtrack, though, as well.
