I guess a lot of people who voted haven't played it? Not sure, that's my excuse why I didn't vote for it though :D

pssht! Runner up for Deus Ex: Human Revolution as FPS! Oh well :( :lol:

Overall I quite like the list, glad Bulletstorm made a mention!

Only 17 points separating 2 very good games. I know i had to think long and hard about which of the two i would vote for game of the year.

Very disappoint Infamous 2 didn't get anything, I thought it was superb. If it had the marketing of BF3 and the others it would have done a whole lot better (or been perceieved to have done better).

If it's not too much trouble, is there any chance we could get a graph on game/votes? I'm interested to see how other games did that didn't get a mention.

A simple cut and paste into excel would be enough Sir Tim.

Thank you sire.

I think it’s just a good indicator that even though Modern Warfare 3 got a ridiculous amount of sales it’s not the overall more liked game. I bet a good number of people who bought Modern Warfare 3 gave it up and bought Battlefield 3 instead and are still playing it today.

I know I am.

I don't think we were the target audience for MW3

Probably more a case of hoping it was good rather than expecting it :P
