To me it's between Dark Souls with Durante's Mod and Witcher 2 but I couldn't get myself to vote for Witcher 2 EE as it's really a 2011 game and it was in the running against Skyrim last year. For that reason I voted Dark Souls - it's brutally tough, incredibly creative and reminds me why old school gaming was so great.
A lot of the new games like Far Cry 3 and Dishonored are good but not worthy for game of the year. Is FC3 much better than Crysis 1? Is Dishonored better than Bioshock? They don't deserve the title of game of the year. XCom deserves a consideration though since they did an excellent job of reviving the classic. Very addictive.

That game has the lot. Big, medium and small maps. quad-bikes, jeeps,Tanks, choppers and jet fighters. A plethora of game types to suit all and weapons galore.
Call yourselves gamers???

Black Mesa, probably more of a nostalgia trip than anything, I liked half life, but I don't hold it up as some kind of idol that should be worshipped for all eternity. It's becoming ridiculous, people just treat Valve as if they are perfect, which just isn't the case.
Dishonoured was a let down for me, but that may be attributed to how I'm just going off Bethesda now. Loved everything up to Oblivion, must have logged well over 800 hours into that game. I just thought skyrim was meh and the same for dishonoured really (yeah I know they didn't strictly develop it but still).
I guess these GOTY awards never mean anything, they just become a little more ridiculous each passing year.

Played now, or even in the last 10 years, and it's really not as good as several other more recent games.
