This poll is now closed.
I am guessing since this is a Xbox board, no one will be voting for Journey, but I will throw this poll up on the PS3 board as well.

My vote goes to Mass Effect with TWD runner up.

I'm going to give it to The Walking Dead because that game actually lasted a year. No, really, I think the delivery model and storytelling sets a nice bar for future releases to try and hurdle, especially PSN/XBLA titles.

I'm going to give my vote to AC3, Dishonored would be a close second.

It was still only about 13-15 hours of content. Dont get me wrong, it was INCREDIBLE, but...Mass Effect was just ridiculously good (except for the endings)- but they put out the free DLC so part of that was alleviated.

lawl are you kidding me? Those games are absolutely horrible. Kind of sad that the once greatest video game developer of all-time, Blizzard, has fallen so much that their "juggernaut" in Diablo 3 has no mention in these GOTY awards given out.

At least last year had Skyrim.

Did kingdoms of amalur get nominated for top rpgs?

I don't judge the quality by the time spent on it. It was pretty fresh and engrossing to me, so that gets my award.

I admit I can't judge ME3 because it's the one on that list I haven't played at all. I didn't get it right at launch, and then some friends raged about the spoilers and story, and it took the wind out of my sales (not the ending, just the fact local friends were freely telling me things faster than I could tell 'em to shut it).

Anyway, for me while WD had flaws (I'd prefer more action, less point and click), I think it's execution and storytelling were really novel.

Dragon's Dogma would be my top pick not on the list.

NO! You have to get your brain reset back to March of this year! FORGET ALL SPOILERS!

These people are meat virgins. They'll be taken by the grill and delicately and tenderly be shown the ways of flavorful meat love. The first time is beautiful.
