We played it and reviewed it, and unfortunately thought it was really average, so our other nominees eclipsed it.

Christ, you've got Transformers in over Binary Domain, really? :o

Binary Domain all the way for me, it has its flaws but Sega know how to tell an engaging story and the gameplay itself was pretty flawless.

"Author clearly never played Binary Domain."

Or....he didn't like it. I also thought it was average/good, nothing special.

Called an opinion, get used to it.

I think Spec Ops is the best TPS this year. In saying that, after playing the Gears of War series, every other TPS feels like cheap imitated game-play. Never feels right.

If every TPS had game-play as good as Gears of War 3, hell even the first one, I'd be happy.

Max Payne. Hands down

I'm less than halfway through the game that won, so I can't say I agree or disagree with the decision, but it's refreshing to see that narrative was the primary factor in their decision.

Great stuff! :) It really skyrockets up as you get closer to the middle and especially the end, keep playing it and I hope you find it as awesome as we did :D

Yeah, we were stuck with a bit of a dilemma in the end, because all of our nominees had glaring faults either in SP or MP, so we thought it most fitting that the winner had to be the game that left the biggest/best impression on us and was the most memorable, and that played a big part in how we came to our decision :)

Thanks for reading :)

Spec ops the line was boring. 6 of 10 from me. Binary Domain, a near 10.
