Critical Gamer’s Game of the Year

Critical Gamer writes: It’s Christmas time! This means surreptitiously hunting down the addresses of relatives you carefully ignore the rest of the year, writing Christmas cards for work colleagues you’d happily slit the throats of if you were confident nobody would ever find out, and resisting the urge to throttle people whenever they say “It doesn’t feel like Christmas till the Coca Cola advert comes on the telly”.

Of course, it also means that the internet slows down under the weight of all the top 10 lists for games, books, movies, crisp flavours etc. released that year. We won’t be so predictable! We have just one Game of the Year, and five Honourable Mentions. Whoever said that’s basically just a top six list can shut the hell up.

Rather than herding our official review scores together and promoting six of the highest rated games, we’ve shouted at one another about which games we each personally think deserve a mention. Lots of games from the ensuing chaos missed out on a place here, but the game that ended up with a comfortable lead over the others for the much coveted (possibly) Critical Gamer Game of the Year Award was: (Mario Galaxy 2, Mass Effect 2, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Wii, Xbox 360)
