It has begun!

No Red Dead or Mass Effect 2. Very interesting, way to not disappoint Alex!

Posted by Legend

I need to play Limbo now.

Posted by stalefishies

Holy fuck Drew, you killed it with the editing there. I love the little silhouette Kinect parody.

Great video, really digging the style this year.

RABBLEROUSING RABBLEROUSING RABBLEROUSING.

Ok then.

The rest I can see, but I still don't understand the praise being heaped upon Limbo.  I agree with almost everything Alex had to say about the game, except that for all those questions there's nothing really there to interpret or even try to answer them, and the atmosphere falls apart as the game gets gamey in the later puzzles.  And those two things completely destroyed it for me.  It has a great opening 20-30 minutes and then completely fails to deliver on that promise.  
 
ETA: Great editing and well put together video overall.  Couple games unexpectedly missing from the list, though it's doubtful everyone got to play every great game out there.

I may have to get Limbo. Good list

Posted by Sergotron

Good solid list there Alex, I can agree with 90% of your list. I am sorry, I still just don't get it when it comes to Limbo. I finished it and felt rather bored threw out most of the experience.

Hardly any big game titles, but thats great. Great list.

Out-fucking-standing graphic design this year.
 
Also, amazing list from one Alexis Navarrrrrro Bo Bo Bo! err...yeah, as always we about on da same page.

  Great start to the Game of the Year stuff guys.  I could not be happier to see Alex get in on some of this action seeing as he did a good deal of the reviews for the tail end of the year.  His editorials are entertaining as always.  The only game of his to make it to my personal list was God of War 3 and Super Meat Boy.  I am fully on board with the abusive girl friend analogy.  I've never before played a game that I wanted to give a big hug and punch in the face.
 
The video format is sharp guys!  Can't wait to see the rest!

Posted by JoeyRavn

Fuck, yeah. Let's get in GB GOTY mood, duders.

Posted by Iamsterdam

no Starcraft 2 at all... :/

Posted by fox01313

Good list Alex, still can't get past one of the timing/jumping puzzles in Limbo to finish it but agreed on how efficiently crafted it is. Never got to killing more gods in GoW3 but once I go to a friends house after the holiday crazy is over I'll definitely try it out as the only good god is a dead god.

Posted by BloodEffect

Great editing guys! I love the high quality content you guys are achieving now. I love the progress. Cannot wait to see the rest of your GOTY Feature.

Posted by drew327

Great list, lots of variety!  Though, did you not play Mass Effect 2?!

Posted by Blair

Here we go again!  I can't believe it's been fifty-two years gone by already!  They say time flies while you're having fun.  Good stuff, Alex.

Posted by damswedon

Alex's Super Meat Boy was kind of great.

Posted by Gizmo

The new style of the videos remind me of the New Xbox Experience dashboard update.

Posted by PirateNeal

good sell on limbo, I really want to get the game to know what he is talking about now

Posted by President_Barackbar

I think we need to get Alex some help, he only THINKS he loves Super Meat Boy. He can do better than it, there are plenty of fish in the sea. What has that game done to him!?

Edited by horseman6

Wow, some really great visual design this year. 
 
I'm glad to see a lot of smaller releases on your list Alex, it's very refreshing.

Rock Band 3 shines when you have the keyboard or pro guitar controllers. I'm addicted to the keys currently. It's definitely one of my favorite games this year.

Posted by Frederik

Great list, cool shirt!

Posted by HaroldoNVU

fuck! I wanna play Limbo!

I feel a Lifetime Movie of the Week coming on.

I might have to finally check out Limbo now.

Posted by Azteck

Surprising #1 place, I have to say! Good job, keep 'em coming!

Posted by Ravenousrattler

yup me and alex have completely different lists.

Posted by bucky

yeeeaaah limbo!

Posted by BigChief

His summary of Limbo made me sad, because it's still not out on PS3 or PC.

Posted by Scratch

Amazing job on the background graphics.

Posted by Jackel2072

damn you Alex! i wasn't going to buy any more games for a while but after your description of Limbo...

Posted by Milpool

Good Stuff Alex. 
 
Also props to drew for the professional video editing.

Posted by Hizang

Really loving his list, looking forward to the rest
Posted by RedSox8933

I never got to finish Limbo, but you've convinced me to. Good list, Alex
