Seems like we'd get along, you and me. You guys know a good game when you see one, and after compiling all of the lists that you made and totaling up the points, BioWare's Mass Effect 2 is your Game of the Year for 2010.

Below, I've included the top 60 games, which is maybe a weird number, but it's the number of games that scored over 500 points in the voting. These results were compiled from the top ten entries on your "Best of 2010" lists. Games appearing in the first slot got 10 points, second place got nine, and so on down the line. The below list offers two numbers with each game, and those are the number of lists that included the game and the total number of points scored, respectively.

OK, enough setup. Check out the list! According to you, Picross 3D is better than Fable III! I totally agree with you! Exclamation points!!!
