Alan Wake Features for Xbox 360

On: Xbox 360PS3PC

Most of the honest, hard-working and totally bodacious VideoGamer community can probably take an educated guess as to what we've picked out for Game of the Year 2010 - though there's a couple of days left before our very own winner is announced to the world at large. But our totally sweet to the max readership has also taken it upon themselves to vote for their very own favourite games of the year ever. So now the votes have been counted, we can reveal that the community plumped for 77 individual games in their personal Top 10 lists; the following are the ten that finished top. Will their list match up with what the staff chose?

Like David Cameron says - we're all in it together. The community is the life and soul of VideoGamer.com, and without it the staff would probably all get flayed by an army of angry PS3 owners absolutely convinced we're massive 360 fanboys. So, thanks to everyone who took the time to write in with their suggestions, and a special mention to forumite extraordinaire Altaranga for letting us nick off with his original idea from earlier in the year.

We love you all, apart from the ones who can beat us at Black Ops and Pac-Man Championship Edition DX. Which is probably most of you, sadly. On with the list!

10. Super Street Fighter IV

What Wez said: "[Super Street Fighter IV] is an essential purchase. It is the best fighting game available on this generation of games consoles, and further reinforces Capcom's dominance of the fighting game genre."

CheekyLee said: "If Street Fighter IV was the second coming, Super Street Fighter IV is what happened after puberty. This is nothing less than a complete makeover akin to Eliza Doolittle in Pygmalion. All that was already good has been refined, and new tricks have been taught. The bar for future fighting games has been raised clear out of sight."

Really surprised BC2 slipped down the list and was below Black Ops. Really really surprised.

That does seem reasonable.

Hmm, then there's only one logical explaination:

They have a time machine, went into the future (this year) saw the article on community GOTY and then went back in time and did it a couple of years before VG did. Yeah, that's right. That's gotta be right...

Eurogamer also had one of these last year as well, and possibly the year before.

Beat me to it and no I had no idea Eurogamer copied the community article idea as I never read the site tbh.

Why?

Becuase it's rubbish.

One can only assume it got fewer votes than other titles.

Apart from 'Modern Warfare 2' being released in 2009, us forumites don't just play one genre, or to be specific just every Call of Duty game that was released. Black Ops did feature on the list, but as shown there are many games that are better than Black Ops which were released this year.

However, I can only speak for myself. However, I imagine that other forumites might be along the lines of, other, better games were released this year. It's another Call of Duty game or that it was good, but the novelty soon wore off.

Anyone else notice how Eurogamer has one of these articles too...

Copycats!

Very nice feature indeed. I personally think I could of typed up more for RDR, but I think what I said sum's it all quite well for me. Landon Ricketts easily being my favourite character within the RDR universe.

Ooh! Quoted for Bad Company 2, I feel worthy! :p Thanks for using it VG!

What did everyone vote for then? A big list with all the games and places would go down nicely! If its not too much trouble, that is. I'm such a geek - wanting to know the demographic of votes from the VG community! Nothing fancy - a screenshot of excel will do! :D

Anyway, thanks VG for putting this article together and thanks to the brilliant community we have here for actually putting forward thought out answers, unlike some other forums! A pat on the back to all!

I would still be a PC gamer now if it didn't require me to pony up every 6 months to keep my system up to date. Otherwise I most definitely preferred PC gaming, for most genres anyway.

An excellent list and a pretty good summing up of the best games of the year (though, as mentioned, missing PC gaming out in a big way).

It's a pity F1 2010 hasn't appeared in either list though.

I didn't even enter anything and I was still quoted.
