I'm sick of Uncharted 2 and I've not even played it. 
Every screenshot I see is just loads of shooting and I'm very bored of that.
I think it'd be much better if they take most of the shooting out of a game like that kinda like Mirrors Edge did.
Then I'd be interested.
Makes me seem like a bit of a hippy but sick of all the killing in video games.

High quality video production on this year's awards. It may not have a feature page but the team has done well.

Good list, Brad.  
  
Surprised to see some DS love. I enjoyed Bowser's Inside Story as well. 
 
Which reminds me, I really need to finish up a few more games and make that list.

It's worth playing Uncharted 2 because it is a good game.  The story is alright but it's told really well if that makes any sense.  My favorite thing about the game is just how Drake responds to all the crazy situations he ends up in.

Really liked all of these lists.  Brad's is no exception.  I played all of the titles listed except for Flower and aside from that it seems like a pretty solid list.

@samcotts: I get what you're saying but I was just comenting on how I'm sick of how games are going at the moment.
I'm not going to go out and buy a PS3 just to find out I hate it.
Might get it for Demon's Souls that seems genuinely interesting.

@DOUBLESHOCK: Totally am. Got rid of my 360 to get a Wii recently as it seems to have a lot more games to my taste.
Might get a PS3 when i've got the £ but still a bit expensive for me.

John McClane shot people, so did Indiana Jones, therefore Nathan Drake must shoot the people.

That's a nice suggestion, but you haven't even played the game. I've not heard a single person complain about (who has played). It is an ACTION ADVENTURE game, so I'd expect there to be loads of shooting.

@Pyroph: I hear ya on that one.. Left 4 Dead 2 is definitely one of the top games of the year (top 10 easily) and the fact that most of the Giantbomb staff missed out on it is pretty disappointing. Someone needs to stand up for excellent cooperative games!

@BristolRICH:   There is a lot of shooting in Uncharted, but the game isnt about the shooting like so many others, it has a deep Character-Driven story, weren't you listening to Bradley?!?! =P

I have played it, and I still hate the lack of any real platforming mechanics. You can only jump on what Nate wants to, and it's so controlled, can't really call it platforming. And the platforming itself is still very wonky, when you compare it to much better-developed platformers in this day and age.
 
There are plenty of other little nit-picks, but it's still a good game, even if overhyped.

I think Shadow Complex could be Giant Bomb's GOTY. Seriously.

Just port that game to the damn PSN, you motherfuckers. I want that.

@Curval: if i had a ps3 I'd try it just to see what all the hype is about. I'm just very bored of shooting in games.
