So it's still Batman, Uncharted and AC II as the front runners. And Batman is still the only game on all of the lists. Will Brad spoil it?

Awesome list. Rhythm Heaven and UFC shout-outs were very pleasing; two games I enjoyed very much.

So far, none of the GiantBomb staff have included Ghostbusters: The Video Game into their list. I guess they're not too fond of the game as much I am.

I love that Shadow Complex made it all the way to #2.
 
My top 5:
Batman:AA
Assassin's Creed 2
MW2
Uncharted 2
Shadow Complex
 
I would be very hesitant to put SF4 anywhere in my top 10, but then again I was too cheap to buy a fight stick, and was dumb enough to side with the 360 version over PS3. My god, how I hate the D-pad on 360...

Before the GOTY business got started I would have said UC2 was highly likely to take the top prize, but it seems Batman is going to come from behind and earn that honour.

A fantastic list!! I loved Jeff's smackdown on the haters of Modern Warfare 2. It is awesome nonetheless.

This was a damn good list.  I'm loving the UFC love.  That was a great technical fighting game.
 
I guess we get Brad tomorrow?  Or maybe he's already calling it, and just gonna post Left 4 Dead 2.

Street Fighter 4 brought together the casual and the hardcore?  Maybe the hype did, but the game didn't.

Question for Jeff:
 
I heard you say on the Bombcast that you had to start playing Dragon Age Origins for GOtY considerations.
 
Hearing the game is super-long, did you start too late to finish in time, or was it not worthy of making your top 10?

You know as well as I do Brad's goin with Uncharted 2.
 
...unless, he pulls the dirty "go against the grain" trick and goes Infamous on everybody.
 
...or maybe he's finally gone through Batman and realized how good it really was.

@Agent47CSim2: Yep! Same game. It's great. 
 
I dig the facial scruff. 
 
I guess of this list I have played Rhythm Heaven and I did try really hard to play Borderlands. Maybe I could add it to my "things to do every day" like exercise and play until the motion sickness sets in, so about 20 minutes a day. ;-)

No surprise that Jeff picked MW2, I wonder how the whole game of the year thing goes though. I hope MW2 does not get it personally.

I would bet my copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga that Brad will pick Uncharted 2 over Batman.
 
No real point of this post, other to gloat about finally getting PDS.
