Yay Jaffy! Nice to see a slightly different list than most. Grats to Brendon Chung on Thirty Flights.

@NTM: Oh wow, I switch the quality and suddenly it works. Really, really strange.

Whenever his kids bust in like that in the videos he does it's hilarious.

Man, Jaffe just has such ENERGY about games. Love it. And now 30 Flights is on my list.

I AM SEVEN

Posted by TehBuLL

I am 27 so...take that adorable younger person! I'm 27 and still can't wrap my head around minecrafts iOS controls. I hate the younglings.

Surprised at his #3.

Great video. Always love to hear him talk.

Awesome, Can Time with Jaffe!

Posted by Benny

I felt like that sentence was gonna end, "I am seven, and what is this?"

Great video!

I get Thirty Flights of Loving. It's incredibly well made.

I would not say its in the top 10 best games of the year. Top 10 most important games of the year? Maybe. But not best.

Jaffe! Jaffe! Jaffe!

"Uhmm, what is that?" Greatest last quote of the 2012.

God, I love Jaffe. He has a passion and excitement for games that reminds me of Vinny.

BREAKING NEWS!

Jaffe has the best tangents.

Posted by MosesWalker

Always appreciate Jaffe's candor about games. Great guy and his daughter is adorable. I'm hoping he has a happy new year.

what is his number 2 game I couldn't understand it =/ he talks a tad to fast

Posted by SupberUber

Nice to see Jaffe again ^_^ I hope you haven't been completely swallowed by that new path of yours, and that some day you'll do a console game again.

Posted by MeatSim

12 games on a top 10 list. Jaffe makes the impossible, possible.

Jaffe! EDIT: Video no worky for me.

Yep, video isn't working for me either :(

Yeah, same.

No videos are working for me today.

Looks like it might be the ad system not working?
 
Just a guess, but only non-subscribers seem to be commenting they have an issue...

Amazing ending, really cool list. I've been playing Rayman on my Vita to and he's right---it's way better there. So fun. Cool to see Thirty Flights get props too.

Impossibly cute ending!

DAT JAFFE

Posted by cooljammer00

I wonder if he knows Patrick thought Twisted Metal was dogshit.

Posted by LordLOC

David Jaffe sir, I've been playing the games you have been making since, well since you've been making them. Don't stop making your awesome games please. Also, you rock.

The list is great, some real out of the blue sort of games (well, not if you are a PC gamer or Mobile gamer I suppose) but I agree with most on the list. Thirty Flights of Loving was a terrific little gem this year.

Also, hi David Jaffe's 7 year old Minecraft playing child! :D

Posted by Xtrminatr

God damn, I love this man. Interesting list, and heartfelt until the end.

Posted by Scrumdidlyumptious

So adorable

Posted by Godlyawesomeguy

Holy shit, I loved the ending.

Posted by HerbieBug

Not late, David.  You made it in before 2013 and are therefore exactly on time.  :D

Posted by AuthenticM

I fucking love you, David Jaffe. :)

Posted by Carneous

Top list!

Thirty Flights was rad. Cool to see Blendo getting the recognition they deserve.

He seems waaaay cooler than I had thought he would be after seeing those damn Bonus Round episodes!

Posted by MordeaniisChaos

I would kill for him to be on the site regularly. Even a monthly or bi-monthly thing.

Posted by Cold_Wolven

Cool as always to see David Jaffe, I wonder what game he is working on next.

Edited by SatelliteOfLove

This and Rorie's are the most analytical and critically strong lists on here. I'm glad they made these.

Auburn gear, though. Brave man. :P

Posted by YoThatLimp

Man, I fucking LOVE Jaffe. I hope we see more podcasts with him this E3 with the crew.

Posted by TheGorilla

David Jaffe is the greatest.

Posted by mellotronrules

i have to say- sometimes jaffe's abrasive doesn't-give-two-fucks attitude gets on my nerves, but i have huge respect for him as a developer and professional. this is a well reasoned, solid list- and i'm really looking forward to what the future holds for him.

Edited by K9

I just played "Thirty Flights of Loving" based on Jaffe's praise for its storytelling. It is a curious game. More of an experiment in presenting a narrative in videogame form than anything else. Playing the game was not a remarkable experience for me but I am glad someone like Jaffe is paying attention to games like these. Something special can definitely be done with a 30 flights narrative style combined with a bigger budget and more fleshed out characters.

the realest dude ever.

Posted by hussatron

Best non-staff GOTY contribution.

Posted by amlabella

Well this made me go buy Thirty Flights of Loving. I probably won't think as highly of it but it looks promising based on the weird art style. And yeah, that ending was adorable.
