It was one of my favorite games last year.

Max Payne was easily my game of the year. I loved everything about it. I just went back a few days ago to do a hardcore difficulty run for the platinum and it was just as good as it was the first time through. Keep in mind, it takes four or five full playthroughs, plus numerous attempts in New York Minute mode to get the platinum. A single player game that can stay that fun after so many playthroughs is rare.

I loved the multiplayer too. If anyone liked the deathmatch style modes in GTA or RDR, this is a highly polished version of that.

It's a shame it didn't do as well as any of Rockstar's other games because it's just as good.

MaxPayne 3 is a great game but not really GOTY. I would've chose Dishonoured or FarCry 3 or Journey (as Kate has) over it.

(THIS IS THE OPNION OF ARABIENSOLDIER. It does not mean anything else besides that)

I just finally got around to playing Max Payne 3 for PC after buying it on sale from GameFly's digital client a couple weeks ago. Downright amazing game. I don't think I've ever seen bodies drop so realistically, or such detailed bullet wounds on enemies. It was actually kind of disturbing to watch at first. >_<

Max Payne 3 was epic, but single-player wise, my GOTY has to go to Far Cry 3. It's friggin phenomenal from start to finish, and there is so much fun and gameplay packed into one playthough, you'd be nuts not to finish it all.
