WORST LIST EVER! HALF OF THE GAMES ON THIS LIST SUCKED. THE WALKING DEAD! WHAT A LOAD OF BS.

Pfft. walking dead>you.
anime_swag_pro  +   931d ago
What a waste of bubbles.
futurefrog  +   931d ago
Walking Dead was an absolutely beautiful game in all regards. I think you are just bashing it because of some personal bias towards great games.
masterabbott  +   931d ago
I have to agree wit this frog guy, Walking dead is awesome and deserves to win! Well done to it.

Walking Dead deserves it

Yes, indeed it does.

Man...Walking Dead is intense. Can't play two episodes without taking a break in-between
ZacE  +   931d ago
I like the majority of this list. The Walking Dead told an amazingly crafted and emotional story. Loved it.
militissanctus  +   931d ago
Very few games put me on edge like Walking Dead did. Too bad that first person shooter coming up with the same name won't be able to even come close.
koga88  +   931d ago
Meh, it's an alright list but I still can't see Journey as that great of a game and definitely not the Best PS3 title this past year. I never was enthralled by the online despite the fact that people always clamor how "great and emotional" it is with playing with someone who can't communicate in any way and often just screws up your game.
ZacE  +   931d ago
I agree with you about the online co-op to a large degree. I think it just presented something new as a game. Maybe not in terms of gameplay, but everything else.
Ryder49  +   930d ago
I disagree. The whole point is that you can't communicate. It would absolutely destroy the atmosphere and emotional depth of the game if you could hear people yelling over mics the whole time.
"Bro go collect that thing"
"This section sucks"
"I'm only playing this for the Trophies"

Total immersion killers.

I am shocked by the fact Halo 4 beat out Forza Horizon, I think that was a huge miscalculation on Capsule Computers part. Also the fact that Journey won anything really discredits this list in many ways to be honest as it is an over-rated piece of trash

Forza...more like Snoresa
ZacE  +   931d ago
I loved Forza Horizon too, still playing it. But Halo 4 is a juggernaut so that was expected.
masterabbott  +   931d ago
Halo is 1000x better than a crappy racing game!
LinkageAX  +   931d ago
HALO 4 is the superior game in every regard. It's not one that I'd have at the top though.
masterabbott  +   931d ago
Pitty that Resident Evil 6 didn't beat Mass Effect 3 for best Sequel .. that is a load of crap! RE6 is far better than ME3... Just listening to the bonus feature podcast at the end .. very funny!
Ryder49  +   931d ago
Resident Evil 6 was awesome. But Mass Effect 3 was even more so.
militissanctus  +   931d ago
Did you play both games? ;)
Ryder49  +   931d ago
Nice list. Though I don't know how Lollipop Chainsaw beat out Dishonored!

Otherwise I pretty much agree. Journey was really the only choice here.
ManDemon  +   931d ago
I wonder how much that came down to the number of people at Capsule that had played them. Lollipop is ridiculous and fun, but I think Dishonored has a bigger world, better built for the possibility of future titles.
