Where is the option for Assassins Creed 2?

If Modern Warfare 2 wins (As I honestly believe it should), I shall work a full week wearing a Kevlar US Army Helmet (with pics)

We took Assassin's Creed 2, along with a few others, at the last minute on the basis that we wanted to keep the list focused on games that have had a PC release.

My votes:

L4D2, Shattered Horizon and Batman: Arkham Asylum.

L4D2 is awesome, they definitely made it worthwhile of being a sequel and anyone who's still on the boycott should just go cry in a corner. Shattered Horizon I chose for its ground-breaking full-3D play-style, although the game is lacking in some ways as the gameplay is somewhat simple, but it's just damned good fun and different. Batman, well I haven't even played it (waiting until it's a bit cheaper) but from all the reviews it's a console port done right, and that can't be a bad thing.

Will have to submit them when I get home - can't for the life of me remember which email address I get the newsletter sent to!

Well that's a least two for Shattered Horizon. I've got an inkling Star Dagger will be voting for it, too :p

I nearly voted for it as it is a good game, but its lack of depth means it isn't deserving of a GOTY award.

L4D2, Batman: AA and Machinarium were my votes in the end, despite logging ~60 hours on MW2 in 1 month

COD:MW2, L4D2, and SF4. :)

Depressingly i've only played two games from that list, I still play far too much tf2. I think i'd pick Batman over l4d2 though it is a better game than the first the mechanic is basically the same and i like the AA story.

Doh, AC2, Batman: AA and Torchlight were going to be my 3 choices. Have to look for something else now (AC2 should be up there though, it really is one of the best games I've played this year).

Haven't really played much else on the list... I've got Borderlands waiting to be played (360 version)... Dawn of War 2 maybe...

Batman, Machinarium and probably Trine tbh. At least, until the last mission. Couldn't bring myself to vote for MW2 because of the copious quantities of twats (apart from Baz and people who frequent bit-tech, who are clearly lovely) that I'd have to play it with as well. I'd sooner use barb wire as floss than go back to MP.
CardJoe 10th December 2009, 16:20 Quote
I'm staying out of this, but I'd definitely give a vote to Batman and The Path, personally.
GFC 10th December 2009, 16:29 Quote
MW2 and Borderlands were really good.
Veles 10th December 2009, 16:37 Quote
Picked MW2, Batman and Empire

Close runners up were Dragon Age (I didn't put it on as I haven't had a proper play through of it yet) and DoW2 (again, not had a proper go on the campaign and not even tried MP).

Borderlands I've not played yet but from what I've heard of it, it would be one of my top games, I'll have to see at Christmas

Meh, I only wanted to vote for one game. Haven't played the rest.
Horizon 10th December 2009, 16:42 Quote
As much as I wanted to vote for L4D2, I gad to go back to L4D which is loads more fun. L4D2 misses the mark it's not a zombie game like the first, it's a shooter with zombies in it.
Mankz 10th December 2009, 16:44 Quote
L4D2, MW2 & Borderlands

I suspect that's what many people are going for, perhaps with Dragon Age splitting the vote.

Should we vote with respect to the PC versions then? Because I loved Arkham Asylum on the PS3, but found it less fun on the PC.

Also, this is a useful way of hiding the lack of an Uncharted 2 review ;)

M'eh. If I was trying to hide that then I'd edit your comment and ban your account ;)

Cough* Where is Killing Floor on that list?

A true PC exclusive (OK on an oldish engine) from a true PC developer (tripwire interactive are simply the best devs for support atm) which has received multiple free DLCs adding multiple maps and new weapons (with some optional paid DLC skins). They have released regular bug fixes and all for the princely one of cost of £15 (or less if you pre ordered).

It is the only game this year I have played regularly!
Lizard 10th December 2009, 17:49 Quote
I second the motion of adding Killing Floor.
Centy-face 10th December 2009, 18:10 Quote
I third the adding of Killing Floor also the lack of Time Gentlemen Please is most disturbing. I couldn't honestly think of 3 of those games I would say deserve this, Also anyone bitching about the lack of console releases being on the site please take a good hard look at the site you are on.
HourBeforeDawn 10th December 2009, 18:26 Quote
I voted for Mirrors Edge, FEAR 2, and L4D2
mclean007 10th December 2009, 19:21 Quote
Erm... Uncharted 2. Hands down the best game of 2009 IMHO. Scandalous omission from the list!

Edit: Oops. Okay so it's games released on PC only. Must. Learn. To. Read. In. Full. Still, nothing on PC this year has touched it as far as I'm concerned.
samkiller42 10th December 2009, 19:24 Quote
Absolutely none of them, Preferred Halo 3: ODST over MW2, as much as i enjoyed MW2. Sorry, but for a game of the year, it should include larger titles whether they have a PC release or not, else, Change the title to Best PC Game of 2009.
