As voted by you!
Through the month of November, we asked for you to vote for your favourite games of the year. You did (and in incredible numbers – thank you for that), and now it’s time to announce the finalists and the winners. Each day we’ll be revealing a new category.
How it works
The five games you’ll see below are the top five games for each category based on the reader’s votes. They are listed in no particular order. The final game is the winner.
If there are six games listed, then there was a tie for the 5th finalist in that category.
We’d love to hear what you think about each category, so please do let us know your thoughts in the comments!
Journey is the game that so many people in the future will point out as textbook proof that games can be legitimate art works.
Never has minimalist concepts been applied so beautifully and so emotively to a video game. Never has a game so subtly clawed its way into a player’s very soul and caused them to think so deeply about, not only the game itself, but what it means to their personal lives.
It is subtle, and it’s a little difficult to see the majesty of Journey from mere screenshots. This is a game that demands to be played, and will never be forgotten by those that do.
This one I like. Though again, I have to wonder where Gravity Rush is 🙁
I still have to try out The Unfinished Swan sometime.
Votes for Vita games were low across all categories. I can only assume it's because not that many people have Vitas.
True. Hopefully that will change. The Vita already has a much better game library than the 3DS. It might not for long though, with the 3DS getting both MH4 and SMTIV.
Agreed, however Tecmo Koei's support of the Vita next year alone is enough for me. Atelier Totori, Dead or Alive 5 and more Ninja Gaiden in my pocket? Heck yes.
