Cool!  
 
[EDIT] So glad I'm done with this quest. 
 
[EDIT2] I was certain that StarCraft 2 would have been number 1. Also expected Mass Effect 2 to be top 3. 
Happy to see Enslaved making the list though.

good list

Posted by Wipeout

Starcraft is number two?  WHAAAA????

Posted by Fjordson
Nice, Brad got it right with Red Dead.
Posted by Titl

Surprising list, i'll say. i was certain that etother StarCraft or Mass Effect was at number one. It's a good list though.

Posted by Wandrecanada

Very good list Brad!  You've almost got me wanting Starcraft 2 despite my deep hatred of everything Blizzard.  If that $60 price tag ever lowers I may actually buy it.

Posted by zitosilva

Brad's list is the one that resonates with me the most.

Edited by AllanIceman

Also surprised that SC2 hasn't topped Brad's list. There were hints of RDR in the GOTY podcasts though.

Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw

That's a really solid list.  I've enjoyed all the GB GOTY stuff, but this is probably the list I can most closely relate to.

Dat Brad! Save the best for last! SC nerds, the nerd rage begins!!

WTF IS THIS SHIT BRAD 
 
SC2 AS NUMBER TWO?! 
 
My mind is blown.

Have to say Brad surprised me with his  #1 pick i was expecting Star Craft 2 for sure, i also thought he would have placed Mass effect 2 higher than he did but hey what do i know.

Posted by Jeffmoocow

Starcraft II isn't #1?  WHAAAAT?

brads list wasn't as gay as i would have thought!

Posted by Zaxex

Excellent list, the most in line with my own. Wish I had the patience and forgiveness to put Dead Rising 2 on my list, must have spent about 80 hours on the various 2010 Dead Rising games.

Hooten tooten!

Posted by MadExponent

Good list.  I think Alan Wake is my GOTY because it's just damn satisfying to play and the story does a great job of reeling you in.
Posted by Ravenousrattler

what the hell is goin on? I agree the most with brads list outta all of the crews, i never thought that would happen.

Posted by Arrested_Developer

Brad's real number 1 is Minerva's Den.

Posted by buwchbach

This is my favourite Top Ten list just because Brad explains his choices more thoroughly.

Edited by teh_pwnzorer

One of the more sensible lists so far.  Go Meat Boy.

Posted by NekuCTR

Nice underline stab at Deadly Premonition. Saying Alan Wake does the "best" Twin Peaks impression. Even though Deadly Premonition is practically a recreation of the story.

Posted by chan05

Best list so far

Posted by LOZZAT

Red Dead Redemption got the #1 spot? YES! Fantastic choice Brad!

Posted by Jayross

Meh Effect is #4. Fitting.

Posted by Jayross

Oh yeah, this is the best list by far.

Posted by Kajaah117

Hell yeah. Not only did he choose my personal choice for game of the year, but this is one of those videos that spits in the face of the haters. Brad is an articulate-ass mother fucker who writes like a beast and does a very great job explaining why he loves the games he loves. 

Posted by Coleslaw893

Happy to see Enslaved get some recognition, though I'm surprised to see Mass Effect  2 not make Brad's top 3. Also, this list makes me want to play RDR even more...

I'm convinced that Brad-lovers must only listen to every other word he says. Brad may be an incredibly smart individual, but his GoTY podcast arguments have been riddled with contradictions and hypocritical statements. His arguments in those podcasts are so objectively fucked up, I can't possibly take Brad seriously when it comes to these deliberations.
 
Nevertheless, an interesting list.

I'm no Brad lover. I love the Bomb Squad equally. I just feel a man like Brad deserves a bit of defending when assholes run so rampant in these comment threads. I don't understand how people found his arguments unfounded.  
 
Shadow Broker was a great DLC with a fantastic reward at the end, but Minerva's Den is a miniature masterpiece. That DLC needs more exposure, and I'm glad to see someone finally pushing so hard to get it recognized. 
 
His critique of Mass Effect 2 was fair as well, if *slightly* overblown. Sure the Bioware guys wrote some backstory to give the giant robot boss at the end of the game some context, but it still felt like a lackluster finale to one of the year's best games.  
 
His style of deliberation is to highlight the flaws in the opposition and I think it's a technique that works. Once you have a list of the top 3 best things of the year, you're wasting time praising them individually. We know they're the best. They're on the list. Brad chooses to find the flaws in each and see which one's flaws are deep enough to prevent it from winning. It comes off as harsh, but it's a perfectly acceptable approach. It's a deliberation. Not a circle-jerk.
Posted by Toxin066

Brad, I'm a little surprised Just Cause 2 didn't beat out Dead Rising 2 for a slot in your top 10.

Posted by SiN13

I think Brad's list has been the most spot on with my own personal tastes. Drew's was a close second.

Posted by FuzzYLemoN

Surprised Starcraft didn't make #1, considering how much of it Brad plays.

Edited by MotivationMan

I love Brad...but no Dave Snider top 10? /sad

Posted by JoelTGM

finally some super meat boy love.

Posted by StrikerTheLizard

Alex gets a top 10 and Dave doesn't?  RABBLE! RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE!

Posted by Godlyawesomeguy

I really enjoy these videos.

Posted by spilledmilkfactory

that's one helluva list. even though i don't personally agree with all of them (enslaved??) i think it's probably the most relatable to me. i liked seeing alan wake and dead rising 2 get some props but was surprised to find me2 not in the top 3. did the whole "giant terminator" end boss perturb you that much? cuz that game was incredible otherwise.

Posted by DiGiTaL_SiN

Brad's list makes most sense to me.

Posted by ItBeStefYo

Screw you Brad! Deadly Premonition should be in place of Alan Wake!!!

Posted by Vigil80

Brad's list surprised me a little. I can safely say that all the regular GB crew had lists I could mostly get down with. Makes me glad to be a member. :)

No assassin's creed? 
Dislike

Posted by radioactivez0r

Interesting to see Enslaved on there.  I thought it was a good game, but the second half (post-Pigsy)  really ruined the first half storytelling for me.
